Mahoning recounts today change nothing


Recounts today didn’t change the outcomes of four races in Mahoning County.

A recount in the Austintown police levy took away one yes and one no vote with the final total being 3,006 against and 2,992 in favor. So the 3.2-mill levy – a 2.4-mill replacement and a 0.8-mill increase – still lost by 14 votes.

The three other recounts didn’t change the vote totals at all.

A liquor option for Buckeye Auto Wash, 6123 Market St., in Boardman Precinct 9 was a 112-112 tie. Issues have to win so the option was defeated.

County Democratic Chairman David Betras held on to a 124-123 win for Democratic committee member in Boardman Precinct 8.

Also, Corrine Sanderson, a Youngstown school board member, tied 17-17 with Dominic Lucarelli for Republican precinct committee member in Youngstown Precinct 4B. Sanderson won a coin toss last Friday to win the election if a recount didn’t break the tie, which it didn’t.
