Did Leslie Knope Win the Pawnee City Council Race on Parks and Recreation? The Results Are In!
Congratulations, Leslie! Sort of.
After a recount, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), the deputy parks director on NBC's Parks and Recreation, won the Pawnee City Council election by just 21 votes over rich simpleton Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd).
"Honestly, I've never been more relieved in my entire life," Bobby Newport said in his concession speech on tonight’s Season 4 finale, "Win, Lose, or Draw."
But it was not all good news for Leslie — her boyfriend Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) was offered a job in Washington, DC. After she initially asked him to turn it down so they could stay together, Leslie eventually said he should take it. She said they'd do the long-distance thing, traveling back and forth visiting each other in Indiana and DC. (Eek. Does that ever work?)
So Leslie is starting her new job on the City Council as we potentially say goodbye to Ben (and Adam Scott).
