MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) Greg Mikolai held onto a slight lead over John Sluder to win the Mesa County Valley School District E seat.
The atmosphere at the Blue Moon Bar and Grille was calm and relatively somber compared to the upbeat mood at the Doubletree Hotel Tuesday evening.
Candidates and their friends and families eagerly watched television screens, waiting for the results to come in.
Mikolai finished with just over 1,300 more votes than Sluder, making it the closest race of the night.
