Why no re-count?

To the Editor:

It really surprised me that Mr. Fortin gave up so easily. He persuaded the 617 or maybe more to vote for him and then when it comes down to the wire you give up. I could understand if it was a large margin of 40 or more votes but it is only one vote. I just do not understand his decision on this but it is his business not the people that voted for him.

It would seem like there would be an automatic recount when it is that close just to make sure that every vote was counted correctly.

I hope this new board does half of what they say they will do and vote on their own and not by what they are told to vote for.
