Newburyport mayoral vote recount complete, no change in winners

NEWBURYPORT -- A recount of the city's mayoral race has resulted in the same order of finish: Mayor Donna Holaday (1,498), City Councilor Dick Sullivan (1,354) and City Councilor Greg Earls (1,303) with just a few votes changing. 

Earls had called for the recount. 

During primary voting in mid-September, the tally was as follows: Holaday (1,496), Sullivan (1,355) and Earls (1,302). The recount, held with numerous official observers and lawyers watching the re-tally of each vote, took about four hours. 
The three candidates were present, and Earls congratulated both opponents at the end of the session. "I have no plans right now other than to work to help the city in the coming weeks," said Earls, a construction manager and educator who will be leaving the council. 
He declined to say whether he would endorse a candidate in the November election.
