The debate over the Fairhaven Board of Health election will go on for a while longer. 

A Superior Court Jjudge has set a hearing for May 31 to consider a request by challenger John Wethington  for a new election. 

Wethington was declared the winner on election night, but a subsequent recount resulted in a one vote victory for incumbent Peter De Terra. 

Wethington’s attorney, Ann Denardis says there were well-documented problems with the ballot counting on election night.

Attorney John Markey Jr. says ballots were counted three times, and his client, Peter De Terra came out the winner each time. 

He adds, having Wethington wait ten months and run for the office again might be a better use of everyone’s time and money, but he and his client will be in court on May 31.
