Hintz wins tie-break to take seat on Prescott City Council

Darlyn Hintz drew the high card and took her seat on the Prescott City Council Thursday evening in a city election tie-breaker in the council chambers.

Both Hintz and Dan Finley were the top write-in vote-getters in Tuesday's spring election for one of the at-large seats on the common council. After a recount Wednesday morning showed the outcome still tied, both candidates drew cards to break the tie. The procedure was conducted by the city's Election Board and Prescott City Administrator Jayne Brand.

Hintz drew a seven of clubs and Finley drew a two of diamonds.

More on this and other election results in next week's Prescott Journal, on newsstands and in town next Wednesday,
