A recount of the Ward A Waynesboro City Council race Thursday maintained the result from Election Night: a narrow victory for two-term incumbent Tim Williams over challenger Jim Serba.

After two hours of recounting by the city’s Electoral Board overseen by observers for the two campaigns and a three-judge Circuit Court panel, the final tabulation gave Williams 1,382 votes to Serba’s 1,360.

Williams called the recount in the Waynesboro Circuit Courtroom interesting.

“It was a little bit of Waynesboro history,” he said.

The incumbent said he was confident about the outcome, and is now ready to start his third term on City Council in July.

Serba said that he did not anticipate the recount to change the result, but that “it was better to put it to record.”

Williams also noted that there is still work to do in the final weeks of his second term, including the passage of the city’s 2012-13 budget.

Thursday’s recount took about two hours. At just after 3 p.m., Judge Humes Franklin said the order was being entered giving Williams the victory.

Joining Franklin on the panel overseeing the recount were fellow Circuit Court Judges Bradley Cavedo of Richmond and Sarah Deneke of Stafford.
