One of the candidates looking to fill the Lancaster County school board seat held by the late Dr. Peter Barry has dropped out of the race.
Al Simpson submitted a letter of withdrawal Friday afternoon to the Lancaster County Election Commission.
Ronald Burke and Bill Sumner are the remaining candidates. The special election for the District 4 seat will be Nov. 30.
“I got an employment opportunity that’s not going to allow me to serve in that position,” said Simpson, who wouldn’t elaborate.
