TOWN OF NEW HAVEN — A recount in the Town of New Haven has verified the vote for treasurer at 78 for the incumbent and 79 for the challenger.
Incumbent treasurer Laura Ulrich received 78 votes in the April 2 spring election, and challenger Mark Bartz received 79 votes.
According to an e-mail message dated April 6 from Diane Duerst, clerk in the Town of New Haven, Ulrich had filed a petition for a recount with the clerk on April 5.
The order and notice of recount were generated, and both Ulrich and Bartz signed acceptance of service on April 5, Duerst said.
The recount was held Saturday morning, April 6, at 9 a.m. According to the recount manual, the soonest the recount could be held was 9 a.m. the day following the candidates’ acceptance of service, she said.
“All parties were agreeable to holding the recount this morning due to the fact that one of the original inspectors was going to be out of town and also due to the probable upcoming Supreme Court Justice recount, we wanted to have all the material back to the Dunn County Clerk’s Office in a timely manner,” Duerst wrote.
The results of the recount resulted in no change in the vote totals, she said.
The original results are the same with Mark Bartz receiving 79 votes, and Laura Ulrich receiving 78 votes, Duerst said.
“This is a perfect example of how every vote matters!” she wrote.
Incumbent town chair Marv Prestrud was the only candidate on the April 2 ballot for the New Haven Town Board and received 130 votes.
Incumbent Supervisor Jeffrey Carlsrud received 124 votes, and incumbent Supervisor Tom Schoonover received 121 votes.
