RAYMOND - A Friday night recount on two ballot issues led to one reversal.
Jack Barnes had originally been declared the winner of a seat on the ethics committee with 34 votes, beating Cheryl Killam, who received 33 votes in initial counting.
After the recount, Killam came out the winner with 37 votes. Barnes received 35.
Both were write-in candidates.
A recount was also held on article 22, a citizens' petition warrant article that requested $18,000 to repaint the town's historic Depot.
Although the recount changed the number of votes, it did not change the outcome. The article lost by five votes.
