Oh What a Night!!!
With only 7% of total voter turn out, Tuesday night, proved to be a long and tedious hand vote count. We are blessed with a committee who doesn’t cave under pressure … they made sure the count was accurate and fair.
Because things were handled somewhat differently, MageeNews.com was unable to keep a live feed because “there was nothing happening!” Well, that is not totally the truth! We could not film what was happening. Supporters at the Civic Center as well as the viewing public became disillusioned with no info.
Let me see if I can get everything straight now! I was one tired woman last night and this morning…so I’ve been slow in getting my MageeNews.com job covered!
Mayor Dale Berry received 145 votes in Ward 1; 100 votes in Ward 2; 49 votes in Ward 3; and 24 votes in Ward 4 for a total of 318 votes.
