The debate over "the election that won’t go away" in Fairhaven will continue for awhile longer. 

On Monday, Superior Court Judge Robert Kane ruled that a contested ballot previously declared a vote for incumbant Peter De Terra, was a blank. 

That ruling, in effect, left the election between De Terra and John Wethington in a tie.

Now De Terra wants to appeal Judge Kane’s ruling to a single justice of the State Appeals Court.  Attorney John Markey Jr. will file the appeal next week. 

In the meantime, Wethington filed suit in Superior Court, seeking a new election.  That hearing will continue on Monday.
