Dozens of people gathered in support of Brian Treece at Broadway Brewery on Tuesday night. They gathered to eat, talk and watch the votes for mayor being tallied.

Treece said he believed they ran a great campaign effort and brought together many volunteers who had never volunteered with a campaign before.

“They say campaigns are the ultimate team sport and I thought we put together a great team,” Treece said.

Treece said they knew it would be a close vote, so he and his supporters, friends and family gathered to wait and see what the final verdict would be.
