Alderman recount ends with same two winners in Nashua
The results netted the same winners, with David Schoneman securing the Ward 3 alderman seat and state Rep. Pamela Brown securing the Ward 4 alderman seat.
The opponents shook hands and hugged after the new results were announced.
Now that his win is official, Schoneman said he is looking forward to connecting with the Ward 3 residents, implementing change and doing his best to restore faith and transparency in city government.
“I owed it to my supporters to request a recount. Nobody played foul politics in this race, and that makes me very proud,” said Shea, who maintained his political career is not over. “I am open to whatever the future brings, and I will keep working to improve the city.”
In Ward 4, Brown also secured her seat during Monday’s recount. She received 192 votes compared to incumbent Arthur Craffey’s 174 votes. In the recount, Brown gained three votes while Craffey gained one.
“It was closely contested as the results showed,” said Craffey, wishing Brown the best of luck in her new role.
Brown said she was pleased with the results, and commended Craffey for being a gentleman during the campaign.
