BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - There is finally a conclusion to a municipal race in Brunswick County.

Martha Currie will be the newest Leland Town Council Member. 

The race was too close to call on election night, so the next morning, the board of elections declared a tie between Currie and her opponent Roy Lettieri.

Last week, after counting the provisional ballots, Currie was declared the winner by one vote.  Her opponent requested a recount, and two weeks after Election Day the recount yielded the same outcome.
