By The Staff

Democrat Nathan Hjelm has dropped out of the Los Alamos County Council Race.

Hjelm cited time constraints associated with his new full-time job at Los Alamos National Laboratory as the major influence on his decision to withdraw from the race so close to the Nov. 2 general election, according to Democratic Party Chair Cathy Chapman.

The Democratic Party Central Committee has until Sept. 7 to appoint a replacement candidate, but Chapman said she prefers to finalize the appointment no later than Aug. 31.

Remaining Democratic candidates are Ken Johnson, Geoff Rodgers and Deborah Gill.

Chapman said she invites residents who are interested in filling the vacant position to attend a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday in the third floor meeting room at Mesa Public Library. For information, contact Chapman at cathy87544@msn.com.
