Shirley McCracken, who twice came within one vote of being appointed to the City Council, had her day in court on Friday and lost. Superior Court Judge William F.

McCracken, who was the third-place finisher in last November's election, would not say Friday whether she plans to appeal. "I don't know what we'll do next," she said after the 45-minute hearing.
