Lansden wthdraws from council race

Carl Lansden, who really didn’t have a snowball’s chance, has officially withdrawn from the Knoxville District 4 City Council race.

You can read the letter right smack here.

That leaves incumbent Nick Della Volpe and challenger Rick Staples.

Back in June, as you might recall, Lansden did not have enough signatures (you need 25) to get on the ballot in time, so he filled out the proper paperwork and became a certified write-in candidate.

Today was the last day to withdraw.

Knox County Elections stud Cliff Rodgers said any write-in votes cast for Lansden will be tabulated and records, but they won’t count, even if he wins.
