There is the possibility that Matt Klutz can ask for a recount in his 51 vote loss to Karen Greene Lerch in the Watauga Commission district 3 Republican primary. That will be determined in the canvass next Tuesday. The winner would take on Billy Kennedy in the fall. In the district 5 primary, Jimmy Hodges by a 2 to 1 margin over Allen Trivette, will seek Nathan Millers seat against current Board of Education member Barbara Kinsey.
