EVERETT — Mill Creek City Councilman and Mayor Brian Holtzclaw will get a third council term after a machine recount conducted Tuesday confirmed his victory in the Nov. 2 election.
Meanwhile, county election workers are completing a hand recount in a duel for a seat on the Alderwood Water and Wastewater District Commission.
Donna Cross, a commissioner since 1992, led Patrick Leonetti by 59 votes, 19,538 to 19,479. The difference was 0.15%, triggering the hand tally.
Results for all three contests are unofficial until certified as final by the county canvassing board. That panel is set to meet Friday.
