CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Next time the naysayers tell you your vote doesn’t mean anything, point to the Richwood mayoral election.
Bob Henry Baber, a former mayor of Richwood and several times a candidate for statewide office, appears to have won the mayor’s race — and his win couldn’t be any closer.
Baber garnered 104 votes. Second-place finisher Glenn Weiler got 103.
Weiler has until 7 p.m. Wednesday to contest the results before they become official, City Clerk Abby McClung said.
