Rival urges Lantigua to concede election

LAWRENCE — Daniel Rivera, fresh from an apparent razor-thin victory in the mayoral race over incumbent William Lantigua, urged the mayor on Wednesday to accept defeat so that the city can prepare for a new leader.

But Lantigua has not conceded, nor has he asked for a recount, according to city attorney Charles Boddy. Lantigua has 10 days to request a recount, state officials said.
