In a one-paragraph e-mail to the Los Alamos Monitor, Republican candidate Roger Waterman announced he was withdrawing from the county council race Monday.
The statement read: “Due to business and professional issues that have arisen over the last several weeks, I am withdrawing as a candidate for the Los Alamos County Council. I regret disappointing my many supporters. I will be returning any financial support I have received to those who supported me in that manner.”
"I'm really disappointed," Waterman said in a phone interview. "I really have an interest in governmental affairs. The timing was just bad."
