Jantz won't campaign for school board seat

January 10, 2004|by SCOTT BUTKI

Connie Jantz, one of 16 candidates for four Washington County Board of Education seats, has decided not to campaign for the office, she said Friday.

The deadline to withdraw from the election was Dec. 31 so her name will appear on the March 2 ballot, Washington County Board of Elections Supervisor Dorothy Kaetzel said.

The eight candidates who receive the most votes advance to the Nov. 2 general election.

Jantz, 39, had not yet contacted the elections board to say she had decided to drop out of the race, Kaetzel said Friday.

Jantz, of 1229 Weverton Road in Knoxville, said she did not know it was too late to drop out.

She filed for the race because, at one point, only three people had filed for the four seats, she said. The positions seemed too important to go uncontested, she said.

Now that she sees there are so many qualified candidates, she has decided to exit the race, she said.

Jantz, who presently is unemployed, came to this area after serving in the military at Fort Detrick from 1987 to 1990, she said.
