Pat Bechtler is no longer in the running for the Gills Creek seat on the Franklin County Board of Supervisors.
According to Franklin County Registrar Kay Chitwood, Bechtler submitted a candidate withdrawal form Sunday.
In an email, Bechtler said she is withdrawing from the race due to family medical issues.
“At this time I am not sure what the future holds and will not promise time to my community when I am unsure if I will be able to fulfill it,” Bechtler said.
