There is one less candidate for the job of Cannon County Executive, and one more candidate for the position of Second District Commissioner.
Kimberly Bailey, who had originally entered the county executive race when she picked up qualifying petition papers in January, decided this week to no longer make a bid to be on the ballot for that position in county government.
