Leelanau the winner in recount

To the editor:

I had the privilege of being a citizen observer on Saturday morning at the Government Center for the recount for the District 5 County Commissioner election. The entire team deserves high praise for its professional effort. Starting with Michelle Crocker, our county clerk, and her team, the Board of Canvassers, four township clerks/deputies, two township clerks (Leland and Centerville) whose election results were being recounted, candidate teams to oversee the count, and other interested citizens, everyone conducted themselves with integrity and understood the importance of doing a fair recount.

The process is extraordinarily timeconsuming.

Fortunately, the results validated the original count with only minuscule changes. Thank you to all who participated. We can truly be proud of Leelanau County and its associated governmental units.
