Cella rejects request for election recount

Cindy Taylor-Longest’s request for a recount in the May 1st Blackstone election has been denied by Nottoway Circuit Court Judge Paul Cella.

In a June 4th letter, Judge Cella tells Mrs. Taylor-Longest that state law required her to provide Morgan a copy of her petition within 10 days after the results were certified, and that she didn’t do so.
