Recount Ordered In Bridger Canyon Recall

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN - Gallatin County Commissioners ordered a recount of ballots voters cast to recall Bridger Canyon Fire District Board chairman Mike Conn.

Conn was recalled after Tuesday’s election by a vote of 195 for and 194 against.

County commissioners made all the other results official today except for Conn’s recall.

The other board members up for recall were Colleen Carnine, Margaret Foster, Dennis Guentzel and Dave Mckee.  They were not recalled.

Commissioners said they decided to recount because how important the issue is.

“This is down to one vote difference,” said Steve White, Gallatin County commissioner.  “It is an important race and an important question to voters had to answer and it's very split. So it was our decision to deal with it directly which is what we are planning on doing.”

Commissioners say they will recount the ballots by hand to ensure accuracy.

The recount is scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday at the Gallatin County courthouse.
