A recount for the Menahga mayoral race is in order.

Incumbent mayor Donna Anderson announced Monday at the city council meeting that since the votes were close, she asked the Wadena County Auditor's office for a recount.

"I'm not an unhappy loser," Anderson said.

She added that citizens of Menahga were calling Anderson wondering how the results could be so close.

"I'm a firm believer in the power of the vote," she said.

With a recount, nobody has to wonder, Anderson added.

The auditor's office agreed to do a recount but it will be at Anderson's own expense.

Tom Larson defeated Donna Anderson in the Nov. 4 election by 11 votes.
