Last Monday, Cecil Funderburgh filed a petition for a recount of the County Clerk Ballots. Yesterday the Sean Schaeffer, Republican chair, and his appointed committee started the manual recount. At the end of the day the results had not changed from election night. Cecil Funderburgh had 1284 votes and Cathy Jentho received 1305.
On the local EastlandSpin.com message board, Mr. Funderburgh said, “I want to thank the recount committee, as well as Eastland County Republican Party Chair Sean Schaefer, and all the many people that supported me during my campaign for County Clerk.
I am satisfied that the count was accurate, and congratulate Cathy Jentho on her re-election to the position of County Clerk.”
