Town Meeting 2016: In Brattleboro, DeGray to make decision Monday on recount


BRATTLEBORO >> Avery Schwenk took a one-year Selectboard seat by one vote in Tuesday's election.

The Hermit Thrush Brewery owner beat former board member Dick DeGray in a 1,505-1,504 vote. DeGray has 10 days to call for a recount.

"I'm going to let (Town Clerk) Annette Cappy late in the day Monday," DeGray said Thursday.

Asked why he thought the vote was so close, DeGray said, "Elections are what they are."

"All elections should be that close," he added.
