Withdrawing From the Race

Today I am, with heavy heart, announcing that I am no longer seeking re-election as IBEW Local 1049 Business Manager.

After much reflection, discussion, and out of consideration for my family, I am withdrawing my name from consideration, ceasing my campaign, and notifying the necessary parties of my decision to take myself out of competition for the office of Business Manager.

I want to thank all those that supported me during my tenure as your Business Manager, those that worked with me to serve and represent the members to the best of my abilities, and those that endorsed and supported me during the campaign.
