I apologize for the delay in responding to your e-mail.
For personal reasons, I have been unable to actively campaign and I would be unable to accept the position on city council if I were to win the election. Therefore, I have decided that it would be unethical to take contributions or to participate in any candidate forums.
It is not possible to remove my name from the ballot nor change the statement in the voters pamphlet, so I am contacting you with this information. I will also be placing this notice on the website provided in the statement.
