The final results of the Orange City Council race remain unchanged after a court-ordered recount today.
Edward Marable, Jr. filed for another count after losing the May 12 non-partisan election to Weldon M. Montague III by 17 votes, 769 to 752.
After today’s count, Montague is still the winner, now by 23 votes, 775 to 752.
The other two at-large council seats were won by Adrienne Wooten and Clifford Ross.
Wooten’s vote total increased from 1,330 to 1337; Ross saw his numbers increase by 17 votes and finished at 1,232.
Dwight Holmes remains in fifth place, but his vote increased by 5 to 700.
Marable, a former councilman, still has the opportunity to challenge the results in court.
Wooten, Ross and Montague are scheduled to take office on July 1.
