MANCHESTER — Erika Connors held on to her Manchester Ward 8 seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives following a recount held Tuesday.
Connors, who lost her seat on the city school board last week to Jimmy Lehoux, picked up a few votes in the recount. The official results now show her defeating Albert MacArthur in the special election by 23 votes, 1,218 to 1,195. Results released last week had Connors winning by 20 votes, 1,198 to 1,178.
The election was held to fill the seat vacated by the death of Rep. Steve Vaillancourt in April.
