New Mayor in Chauncey
(2007-11-20)
(WOUB) - There's a new mayor in Chauncey, who won by the skin of her teeth.

The Athens County Board of Elections met Tuesday to certify election results and determined that Ginger Mender won the mayoral contest by just two votes.

In the final vote tally, Mender got 103 votes and beat incumbent Mayor Fredricka Shover, who had 101 votes.

Shover was winning by three votes after election night.

But provisional and disputed ballots were added in Tuesday.

Elections officials says Shover has five days to request a recount.
