    The last member of Queenstown's Council is lost for words - after being chosen for the seat by lady luck

    The last member of Queenstown's Council is lost for words - after being chosen for the seat by lady luck


    On a recount, Glyn Lewers and AJ Mason each had 2183 votes - so a two-dollar coin was flipped this afternoon.

    Lewers - who called for the recount after preliminary results had Mason narrowly beating him - came out on top.

    He says he's not sure how to feel about the election coming down to chance.
