A DeWitt County Board race has been decided by a coin toss... but even the winner is unhappy with the outcome.
George Wissmiller won the toss, which was held because he and incumbent Terry Ferguson were tied at 827 votes each after all ballots and absentee votes were counted.
Even though he won, Wissmiller says he disapproves of the race being decided by a process that he considers “gambling.”
He says he will refuse to accept the small salary that goes along with the seat.
Ferguson could still seek a recount, but would have to pay for it out of his own pocket.
