After much thought, I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration for the vacant position on the Friday Harbor Town Council. As my residence within the town limits of Friday Harbor is for sale, and I likely will move outside the town limits, it only stands to reason that I should withdraw. I feel it would be detrimental to the business of the council to accept an appointment and a month or two later have to resign, due to no longer being a resident of the town.
