After three hours, Circuit Court judges Harry T. Taliaferro (Spotsylvania), Pamela S. Baskervill (Petersburg) and Cleo E. Powell (Chesterfield) recertified Christy Jett as the winner over incumbent Paul Metzger.

With that, the first recount of a local race in Spotsylvania history came to a close.

More than 20 local election officials tabulated the same number of votes that were reported for the two candidates on Nov. 6: Jett won 7,420 votes to Metzger's 7,357 votes.
