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

Hjelm cites 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.

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

Chapman invites residents 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.
