Duffy wins; Frye leads in Ward 4 but race is too close to call
At this point, Frye has 318 votes to Paolucci’s 300, Pitchford said.
Frye got more votes in the New City Fellowship Church precinct and Paolucci won the VFW Post 3103 precinct.
The winner won’t be determined until all votes are reviewed in a canvas starting at 9:30 a.m. in the registrar’s office on Wednesday.
The results are in and Duffy has won in Ward 3 and Chuck Frye is leading in Ward 4, registrar Juanita Pitchford just told me.
Pitchford said the Ward 4 race won’t be determined until a canvas of all votes is conducted on Wednesday.
Yes, I’m still waiting and watching for the first numbers. Shouldn’t be much longer.
The polls closed in Fredericksburg at 7 p.m. and I’m awaiting the results of today’s four ward races for City Council.
Obviously, the top interest is in the two contested races: Ward 3 and Ward 4.
I will be posting the results as they are available. The first results may not be released until after 8 p.m., I was told.
The four ward seats for the School Board won’t be a surprise. The four incumbents ran unopposed: Elizabeth R. Rehm in Ward 1, Barbara A. Miller–Richards in Ward 2, Jannan W. Holmes in Ward 3 and Malvina Rollins Kay in Ward 4.
Also, offering little mystery are the City Council races for Ward 1 and Ward 2.
Barring something highly unusual, Brad Ellis will be serving again in Ward 1 and Billy Withers will be elected to the Ward 2 seat being vacated by George Solley. Both men are running unopposed.
