Just three months after getting into the race for San Leandro's District 5 City Council seat, Peggy Combs has announced that she is withdrawing from the race. Her exit helps San Leandro School Board trustee Pauline Cutter, whom Combs has endorsed, and who has greater name recognition than the other remaining candidate, Corina Lopez.
In a statement emailed to supporters, Combs wrote, "While I deeply regret disappointing those who have been so generous with their time, energy, support and counsel, this decision is the best one for me and my family at this time." She concluded her statement, "I certainly plan to remain active (and vocal!) in the community, through the Recreation and & Parks Commission, the Shoreline Citizens Advisory Committee, and in any other ways that help to benefit the San Leandro community."
Combs serves on the Recreation and Parks Commission and was Chair last year. She also serves as Vice-Chair of the Shoreline Citizens Advisory Committee.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at January 4, 2010 2:35 PM | TrackBack
