Coppoletta vs. Porterfield? Do the mathematics . . . .

The Year 2007: “In Place 1, Kim Porterfield defeated Betsy Robertson, 1,314 to 1,265 on Nov. 6.”

The Year 2008: “Place 4 Christopher Jones, who defeated challenger Lisa Marie Coppoletta by a vote of 6,165 (55.60 percent) to 4,923 (44.40 percent).”

Coppoletta = 4,923 – highest number votes received in a campaign
Porterfield = 1,314 – her first campaign run

That is a difference of 3,609 =)
