Water board challenger asks for recount

John Basham, who lost by 90 votes in a race to be a member of the Tarrant Regional Water District Board of Directors, has requested a ballot recount in the race. Basham was one of seven candidates running for three seats on the board and one of a slate of three candidates running to oust incumbent members of the board. Mary Kelleher, one of the three, did win a seat on the board, along with incumbents Vic Henderson and Jack Stevens.
