Hauser to seek recount of election

Sturgeon Bay District 7 Councilmember Laurel Hauser announced Thursday that she will request a recount on Tuesday’s election that saw her lose by only three votes to challenger Kirsten McFarlin-Reeths.  The vote tally reflected Hauser coming up short 248 to 245. Hauser’s three-vote loss comes when at least one voter has stated he was given a ballot for the seventh aldermanic district instead of the sixth, where the voter actually lives.  Hauser says she and McFarlin-Reeths both agreed a recount was needed.



Hauser says the recount will happen either next Wednesday or Thursday after the Board of Canvassers conduct a formal “canvass” of the results of the election on Monday.  Hauser was elected on to the Sturgeon Bay Common Council in 2017.
