Goldberg, 64, is a former New Albany City Councilman who was seeking his first term as recorder.

Endris credited her track record for her secure another four years as recorder.

“I think my accomplishments [in the past four years] helped and I have a large family which has given me a lot of support,” she said.

She said election night is “always a nervous evening” because anything can happen.
