Keith Johnson will have to wait until the recount on votes is complete Wednesday, January 19 to find out if he continues as the Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT) president.

A vote count Saturday gave Keith Johnson the victory by 41 votes. But there may have been a couple hundred votes that were not counted in today’s vote count, leading to the necessity for a recount.

Johnson is going up against challenger Steve Conn in a run-off election.

Saturday’s contested vote was close 1,974-1,933.  With a 41 vote difference-a couple hundred votes could make a solid difference to the outcome. Either way, either winner, there will be work to do to unify the union.
