Judge: Brooks wins primary recount by 1 vote

MONTPELIER — The race for Washington County’s three Senate seats is finally set and, following Friday’s photo finish, Ashley Hill won’t be in it.

It was Francis Brooks by a nose during a court hearing that featured the clicking and whirring of vote tabulating machines and saw Judge Timothy Tomasi briefly create and then promptly break a tie between two Montpelier Democrats who literally couldn’t have engaged in a closer contest.

The final tally, after Tomasi dealt with four questionable ballots that were flagged during a two-day recount earlier this week, was Brooks, 3,709, Hill, 3,708.
