Opp, Ala. (WDHN)—At daybreak Tuesday morning, the Opp City Council met in “special session” to open one provisional
vote that would decide the “outcome” of District two.
Mayor Bracke “opened” that ballot which decided the race between incumbent Charlotte Hunt and challenger T.D. Morgan.
Following last Tuesday’s runoff, District Two Councilwoman Charlotte Hunt, and former council member
T.D. Morgan each had 67 votes. There was one provisional vote that still had to be counted.
Mayor Becky Bracke would read the result. Mayor Bracke says
“and the vote is for Charlotte Hunt. Congratulations Charlotte and T.D. And I want everyone to know that T.D. said whether he wins or loses,
he’ll always help Opp, and he’ll do whatever he can to help us.”
After being “Declared” the victory with a 68-to-67 vote, councilwoman hunt says there’s “no” animosity
between herself and Morgan. It was a “clean” campaign says
“T.D. And I are friends, we’ve known each other for many years. It was very cordial. We wave to each other on the campaign trail.”
Morgan says “we both worked hard, and apparently she worked harder than I did. Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you.
It was a good race.”
