The Lawrence recount is over. Dan Rivera’s 58 vote lead increased to 81! Of course, Lantigua refuses still to concede. No matter. There is a new day in Lawrence…finally. Congratulations to Dan Rivera’s campaign team that believed they could make it happen and put the work in to make it a reality. Good work by Rivera’s recount team led by Dennis Newman…good group of volunteers from across the county. Thanks to the counters and tally people who were brought in from other communities to give an impartial reading of every single vote.
Democracy works most of the time…and today was one of those times.
Congratulations to the people of Lawrence and good luck, Mayor Rivera!!!
