Rodriguez to appeal Clark Co. City Council vote

Clark Co. election results still unresolved

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS 11)--A hotly contested seat in the Jeffersonville City Council belongs to a republican at least for now.

It's an unusual appeal with Steve Webb saying he wants to make sure he won fair and square while the original city council winner is still uncertain that he lost the November election.

Both parties saying there were too many irregularities during the recount.

Although a Clark County judge declared Republican Steve Webb the winner of the contested Jeffersonville City Council race, Webb isn't calling it official himself questioning the recount results from one voting area.

On election night, Webb's opponent, Democrat Josh Rodriguez, was originally declared the winner after absentee ballots were tallied.

In that initial count, he beat out Webb by just 16 votes.

A judge ordered a recount of all 1,000 absentee ballots and Webb was then declared the new winner.

Rodriquez is now appealing.

Also Jeffersonville Recount Commissioner John Perkins who did not sign off on the recount results was also in court saying he witnesses irregularities during the process.
