Two growing cities saw historically close outcomes on election night, triggering recourts. In Gresham, just 13 votes separate Eddy Morales and Travis Stovall for Mayor, with Stovall - who had has the support of the pro-housing community - in the lead. Multnomah County will review more than 51,000 ballots and expects to complete the recount within the month. Gresham serves as an important voice in Multnomah County, and has seen tremendous growth coupled with new housing over the past several decades. In Newberg, the race for the City Council District 5 seat also triggered a recount. Former city councilor and longtime Chehalem Park and Recreation District board member Mike McBride leads businesswoman and sustainability activist Maryl Kunkel by a margin of just 11 votes. Yamhill County has kicked off the recount process, which it expects to wrap up before January. Newberg is a housing leader in Yamhill County, and is currently in the process of updating its housing needs analysis and associated buildable lands inventory, which could lead to expansions and growth in the coming years.
