It looks like there won't be a ballot recount in Ward Five.

Candidate Jan Baptist had pulled recount papers and was considering filing them after losing last week's election to Kerry Winterson by 36 votes.

Baptist contacted WBSM News early Friday afternoon and says after much thought, she has decided not to pursue a recount.

When asked why, Baptist said it was for personal reasons.
