Bechtler withdraws from BOS race

Pat Bechtler

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.
