Geary County Vote Canvass

 At least one governmental group was at work on the recognized Veteran’s day holiday (Monday), with Geary County officials canvassing last week’s election votes.

One particular race was of interest, with only six apparent votes in final but unofficial results separating county commission candidates Larry Hicks and Mike Watson. Watson was a former director of the Riley County Police Department, while Hicks has served as a commissioner and was previously employed at Manhattan Broadcasting.

The caucus (Monday) widened Hicks’ gap, with an official tally of 1,166 for Hicks and 1,150 for Watson–a 16 vote difference.
