Olechowski on Top?

After all the votes were counted last Friday, it appeared that Lincoln Restler had eked out a narrow victory (53 votes out 11,000 or so cast). But nothing is simple in the 50th AD’s District Leader race – there are now reports of an 80-vote discrepancy at one polling place on Kent Avenue. Depending on which memory stick is used (the master or the backup), challenger Chris Olechowski could be up by 31 votes.

Either way, there will be a recount, as mandated in such a narrow margin.
