Mayoral Ballots to Get Recount in Riverbank
Nossaman Associate Amber Maltbie is quoted in The Modesto Bee article "Mayoral ballots to get recount in Riverbank" regarding Virginia Madueño's request for a recount in Riverbank's mayoral race. The article states, "An investigation is under way into Election Day problems that could have cost Madueño her re-election bid, said Amber Maltbie, a Sacramento-based campaign counsel, in an e-mail to The Bee."
Councilman Richard O'Brien is scheduled to be sworn in as mayor based on the certified vote count, which had O'Brien at 3,098 votes and Madueño at 3,045.
"Mayor Madueño has been made aware of many voting-related irregularities reported on Election Day in Riverbank and an ongoing investigation ensues," Ms. Maltbie continues. "Requesting this recount is about more than just Mayor Madueño's election. Her concerns are for the constituents who may have been disenfranchised by the voting process in Riverbank and she looks forward to making certain that every vote is counted."
