The official recount of the June 11 Sugar Land City Council District 3 runoff election confirmed Amy Mitchell’s victory over Howard Paul by one vote, 791 to 790.
A Recount Committee appointed by Mayor James Thompson conducted a manual county of the printed ballot images, reports the city. The committee consisted of Sugar Land residents Mary Von Tungeln, Kathy Huebner, Steve Porter, Joe Zimmerman and Stephen Ip. The recount was completed last week on Wednesday at the Fort Bend County Election Administration Office in Rosenberg.
Mitchell was sworn into office on Tuesday, June 28 at Sugar Land City Hall.
