Recount: No change as Bevans retains post
It's official: Kelly Bevans will remain on the Brainerd City Council serving Ward 2 after a recount Monday conducted at the Crow Wing County Land Services Building.
The recount, requested by opponent Ed Shaw, did not change from the numbers in the Nov. 2 general election. Bevans received 345 votes and Shaw received 332 votes, confirming Bevans' 13-vote lead.
"I'm glad it's over," said Bevans. "I was more nervous about the recount than I was on election day."
