Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz announced today that a recount of the votes cast in November 5th race for Mayor of Blue Grass will occur on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. in the Board Room of the Scott County Administrative Center. Challenger Timothy Brandenburg requested the recount after losing to incumbent Mayor Brinson Kinzer by one vote. Kinzer received 169 votes, Brandenburg received 168 votes and there were 16 scattered write-in votes. Earlier today the Scott County Board of Supervisors voted to authorize a recount.
The recount will be conducted by a panel of three appointees, one member appointed by each candidate and a third member appointed by agreement of the candidate appointees. Greg Boll of Davenport will represent Brandenburg, Pat Zamora of Davenport will represent Kinzer, and Donald Frericks of Blue Grass will be the third member. Ballots will be both hand counted and counted by electronic ballot tabulators. The recount is open to the public.
