Just as few days after qualifying to run for one of the two seats up for election on the Cannon County Board of Education, one candidate has withdrawn from the race.
Charley Heath notified the Cannon County Election Office Monday that he was no longer running for the Fifth District seat on the school board.
Heath's decision to withdraw leaves three candidates — Michael Mayfield, William C. Melton and Shelly Walkup — as contenders for the seat.
