Editorial: Recount decision makes sense
There were some legitimate reasons for Jamal Abdulahi to request a recount in last week’s Rosemount City Council primary. He had finished tied for fourth in a contest that would send four candidates to November’s general election.
Abdulahi ultimately lost the election on a coin flip to Alba Nowlin, who tied Abdulahi Aug. 12. But he had five days to submit a written request for a hand recount at the city’s expense.
