Final Tally: Strong's a Town Councilor
The Rhode Island Board of Elections completed the counting of 926 absentee ballots and Ann Strong was officially elected to the Barrington Town Council today.
Ann Strong is a member of the Barrington Town Council.
Absentee ballots counted over the past two days by the RI Board of Elections did not change the outcome of Tuesday’s tally.
The Democrat led by 159 votes over Republican Margaret Kane on Tuesday night. She won by 141 votes after the 926 absentee ballots in Barrington were counted and posted today at 4 pm.
“I’m glad the wait is over,” Strong said. “Obviously, I’m very happy the way it turned out.”
Strong has been a member of the Conservation Commission and, most recently, a member of the Planning Board.
“I will miss the Planning Board,” she said. “But I can’t wait to start work on the Town Council. I’m really looking forward to it. I hope I can do some good.”
