Michael Mandel said he will not challenge the results of the Conservative primary for Orangetown Town Board that show him losing by one vote.
Sometimes when candidates loses by a tiny (or not so tiny) margin, they ask for a recount or file a lawsuit.
For instance, Republican Paul Valentine said he was considering a legal challenge in the Independence Party primary race in District 17, which he lost by two votes to Legislator Connie Coker, D-South Nyack.
But Mandel said he was satisfied that the Board of Elections did a proper count. He said he personally went over the votes, and they looked legit.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was up there and we went over all the election forms from all the election districts, and the numbers all jived,Ã¢â‚¬? he said.
Mandel won’t be on the November ballot, but said he plans to launch a write-in campaign.
