Manhattan Beach Vote Count Updates PostedNov 10, 2022 05:05PM ● By Mb News Staff
The new count adds only 672 total votes to the count on both sides of Measure MB. City council and school board candidates all benefited from modest additions to their totals.
Nothing in the new count appears to change the dynamics of any race.
Incumbent council member Suzanne Hadley now trails second-place finisher David Lesser by more votes than in the first count. After the overnight count on Election Night, Hadley had trailed by 653 votes, but she is now behind by 822 votes.
In the school board race, where two blocs of three aligned candidates were running, the gap between third place and fourth place is wide: 1,257 votes separate third-place finisher Wysh Weinstein from fourth-place finisher Christy Barnes.
