The new mayor of Logan is Martin Irvine.

The Hocking County Board of Elections has made it official.

But Irvine - a Republican - did not win by much, only 15 votes.     

Board of Elections Director Sue Wallace says that is not close enough to trigger an automatic recount.

Seth Riddlebarger was the Democratic candidate.

Wallace says he has five days to request the count be done again.

Riddlebarger was down by 20 votes in the unofficial count and that was reduced to 15 in the official tally.
