DELEGATE CHRIS STOLLE’S STATEMENT ON THE UNOFFICIAL RESULTS OF THE 83RD HOUSE DISTRICT RECOUNT ELECT
The recount of the 83rd House of District race concluded at the Virginia Beach Registrar’s Office earlier today. The outcome of the recount netted no change in the split East Ocean View Precinct in Norfolk and while Chris Stolle maintained his election night lead in Virginia Beach, the final unofficial count of the entire district placed Nancy Guy in the lead by 41 votes with 3 challenged ballots for review by a three judge panel on December 18th. As the challenged ballots will not change the outcome of the election, Delegate Stolle released the following statement.
“I want to thank Judge Croshaw for his leadership, the Registrars, the City Clerks and their staff, and most importantly the citizen officials and observers who stepped up to serve on the recount teams. While the results were not what we had hoped for, I am so very proud of all that we have accomplished working together; modernization of our transportation system, our work to support veterans and their families, preserving Pleasure House Point, becoming national leaders in adapting to flooding, and improving the quality and access to healthcare for all Virginians. I am truly honored to have served the citizens of the 83rd District. I want to thank the volunteers and supporters who have worked so hard for me and I am truly touched by their kind words and friendship. Earlier this afternoon I called Nancy Guy to congratulate her on winning a hard-fought campaign and wished her success in representing us in Richmond.”
