Recount Gives Kreiss-Tomkins 32 Vote Victory in House District 34

By | December 3, 2012 - 3:19 pm

Sitka Democrat Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins has won a Southeast Alaska state House seat after a recount.

Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai says Kreiss-Tomkins defeated Republican incumbent Representative Bill Thomas of Haines by 32 votes.

The final count was 4,130 votes for Kreiss-Tomkins and 4,098 for Thomas.

Fenumiai certified the election on November 23rd with Kreiss-Tomkins ahead by 34 votes. But Thomas requested a recount.

Thomas served four terms in the state House, serving as co-chair of the powerful House Finance Committee last session. He was first elected in 2004.
