Marcoux wins Nekoosa mayoral race after recount

NEKOOSA (WAOW) - After a recount in the Nekoosa mayoral race, the result is the same. Nekoosa clerk Joe Rusch says Alan Marcoux won the election with 298 votes.

Daniel Carlson received 291 votes. Carlson had requested a recount after election night when the ballot totals were the same.

"I expected it and if the positions were reversed, I'd probably do the same thing," Mayor-Elect Marcoux said.

"It was so close, seven out of 600 votes, I felt I owed it to myself to make sure the results were right," Carlson said.

The two say there are no hard feelings because they've been friends for years. Marcoux will take over office on Tuesday.
