SILT, Colorado – The recount is finished, and local builder Dave Moore has held onto his position as mayor with the exact same numerical result as was reported after the April 6 municipal election.

According to Town Clerk Sheila McIntyre, the recount gave Moore a five-vote margin, 299-294, over challenger Meredith Robinson, in unofficial results.

Moore is now scheduled to be sworn in on April 26, along with his fellow slate-members – former Silt town administrator Rick Aluise, who garnered the most votes with 372; former police chief Paul Taylor (337); and local businessman Bryan Fleming (330).

The slate, Save Our Silt, defeated an opposing group of candidates, loosely identified as “Sensible Solutions for Silt,” which included incumbent trustee Bobby Hays (188) along with Mark Rinehart (268) and Bob Shivley (228).

Board members Sonny Fernandez and Nicky Leigh remain on the board until their terms expire in 2012.

McIntyre said on Wednesday that she had yet to canvas the election results and certify them, but that it will be done in the coming days and the results will be official.

The swearing in ceremony was to have taken place on April 12, but the recount was requested by former mayor John Evans on April 8 and scheduled for the following Wednesday, two days after the April 12 meeting.

Because the election was in doubt, the April 12 meeting was rescheduled until the next regular meeting date.
