It’s not official yet, and no one will officially say this yet. But, Nathan McMurray will be Grand Islands next Supervisor. Today, the Board of Elections opened 150 absentee ballots. The outcome was 80 for McMurray and 69 for Cooke. This gives Nate McMurray a 15 vote lead over Mary Cooke. There are 33 Affidavit Ballots and the Board of Election employees have validated 22 of them. That means there are 22 votes left to count and 10 of those votes are Democrats. The Grand Island Pirate calls it. Nate McMurray will be our next Supervisor. Congratulations Nate!
Tomorrow at 9:30am the parties will go back to the Board of Elections for the final canvas and the official ruling. We will announce it officially here right after the ruling.
