After careful consideration I have decided to respectfully withdraw as a candidate from the Justice of the Peace race.

My position as chairman of the Republican Central Committee will require a deeper commitment than I had anticipated and I feel that running for a non-partisan race would be in direct conflict.  It is with a heavy heart that I withdraw but my commitment to our community remains strong and I am confident that there are enough other qualified candidates to fill the void. 

I am deeply grateful to all the kind folks who pledged to support me in my run but the timing is simply wrong.

Next time,

Lew Clark
