With city elections four months away one of the contenders for the mayoral post is pulling the plug on his campaign and withdrawing from political life.
City Councilman Andrew Feldman, who announced in June that he is running for mayor, has changed his mind.
“I’ve given four years to trying to make the city better, and it’s time for me to step aside and let someone else do it,” he said.
Feldman added that he also will not seek re-election for his council position. The Ward 3 councilman’s term expires in March.
