Judge to make final decision on Friday


A recount is still possible in November's election for Schuylkill County District Attorney.

A judge has refused to dismiss a petition for a recount between incumbent D-A Karen Byrnes-Noon and Christine Holman.

Byrnes-Noon lost the election by 73 votes.

Her attorney says they are asking for a recount of absentee ballots.

The judge will make a final decision on the recount on Friday.

If approved, the recount will be on Monday.
