Taking The Fifth: George Wylie withdraws from 5th District Supervisor race

George Wylie, who has been campaigning for election to the position as 5th District Supervisor for the County of Santa Cruz, has decided to withdraw from the race.

Wylie stated that he is stepping aside for personal reasons. He was one of several candidates vying to replace outgoing Supervisor Mark Stone, who is running for California State Assembly.

“It has been an exceptional experience over the last few months connecting with members of our community and discussing the issues that are important to them,” Wylie said. “However, after careful deliberation I’ve decided to suspend my campaign.”

Wylie's withdrawal leaves Lompico's Bill Smallman, Brookdale's Eric Hammer, Ben Lomond's Susan Weber and Santa Cruz' Bruce McPherson still in the race.
