PRESTONSBURG - Sam Howell was confirmed as the next Mayor of the City of Martin following a recanvass of the election results Thursday at the Floyd County court house in Prestonsburg.
The final results of the election following the recanvass was 161 votes for Sam Howell, and 158 votes for Thomasine Robinson.
A drawn out legal battle over the election results could ensue, though according to Keith Bartley, unless the judge in the case should find cause to set aside the election results, Sam Howell will be the city of Martin's mayor on January 1, 2013.
Sam Howell said that he had challengers in the precincts as well, and that to his knowledge, no challenges were made.
Howell said he thought the election "seemed to go pretty fair."
According to Howell, upon taking his position as Mayor of Martin, his first act of duty will be to request an audit of the cities finances be performed by the State Auditor as well as requesting an investigation by federal authorities of what he termed, a "misuse of funds."
Howell says the biggest challenges he will face is the cities debt, and its ongoing issues with it's sewer stations.
"People have to stuff rags into their sinks to fight back the smell of sewer backing up," said Howell.
According to figures from Thursday's recount, Sam Howell won both the Martin and John Possum voting precincts, while Robinson acquired more votes though absentee.
Thomasine Robinson and several associates were in attendance as well as Sam Howell.

A motion to dismiss has been filed by the attorneys for Sam Howell in ex-Mayor Thomasine Robinson's court battle seeking a recount in the recent Martin city mayor's election.
On December 10, Sam Howell's Attorney, James D. Adams II, filed a motion dismiss stating that the complaint fails to "state a cause or action upon which the court may grant relief."
If the court does not see cause to set aside the election results on December 28, it is likely that Sam Howell will be Mayor on January 1. Howell has already stated that upon taking office, one of his first acts will be to request an audit from the State Auditors office of Martin city government.
The initial margin was five votes, but following a recanvass, Robinson picked up two previously uncounted absentee ballots, which brought the total to 161 for Howell to 158 for Robinson.
Following the recanvass, Robinson's husband, James Robinson, was arrested after allegedly threatening Sam Howell with physical violence.
