The unofficial margin at mid-afternoon was 33 votes over Kathy Cottrell. She had led by 35 votes after counting Tuesday night.
Thomson will be sworn in with Mayor Scott Singer during an organizational meeting that has not been scheduled. I will have much more next week on this race and other news coming out of the city’s special election.
