John Stuehmeier took to Facebook 10 p.m. Thursday to make the announcement.
“Over a month ago I began the process of running for the Town Council. There is a common quote, ‘Your life can change in the blink of an eye,’ ” Stuehmeier said in his Facebook post. “In the last several days, I have had several unexpected events occur in my life and well, my life is changing in the blink of an eye.”
“I am grateful for all of the support I have received during this last month,” he said. “In order to prevent the possibility of a special election in June, I am withdrawing from the race for the town council.”
