Tied Race For Berrien County Commission Decided

A race for the Berrien County Board of Commissioners that ended in a tie on Election Day has now been decided. During a meeting of the Berrien County Board of Canvassers Monday, Fifth District candidates Bruce Gorenflo and Rayonte Bell drew slips of paper out of a box to determine who would win the election. One slip said ELECTED and the other said NOT ELECTED. Republican Gorenflo picked the slip that said ELECTED. With that, he is tentatively the next Fifth District Berrien County Commissioner. However, Bell can seek a recount of the results once the Board of Canvassers has signed all of the election paperwork. That should be this week.
