Recount requested in Pismo Beach mayor race
November 22, 2014
A challenger who lost the race for the Pismo Beach mayor seat by two votes filed a formal request for a ballot recount with the San Luis Obispo County Clerk Recorders Office.
A supporter of Kevin Kreowski mounted an online fundraising campaign on GoFundMe.com to cover the costs of the recount slated to cost about $2,348. The campaign raised $3,130 which will be refunded it Kreowski wins the election.
Mayor Shelly Higginbotham finished with 1,637 votes, and Kreowski tallied 1,635 votes in the final count by county election workers.
Contributions to the recount effort include $300 from San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill and $100 from alleged conman Scott Barnes.
