Lantana: Ferrell withdraws from mayoral race

Joe Farrell, a 20-year Lantana resident and an alternate on the town’s planning and zoning commission, has ended his run for mayor. The election will be March 9.

8419441066?profile=RESIZE_180x180Town Clerk Kathleen Dominguez said she received written confirmation of Ferrell’s withdrawal on Jan. 12. His name will not appear on the ballot.

On a Facebook post from Ferrell, the 58-year-old flooring distributer said he was getting out of the race because he wouldn’t be able to commit 100% to the position due to family obligations.

With Ferrell out, it’ll be a two-man contest between incumbent David Stewart, 67, and Robert Hagerty, 56.

Hagerty is a retired police officer who has been a Lantana resident for 24 years.

Stewart is an air conditioning consultant who has been mayor for 21 years and has lived in the town for 43 years.

Ferrell said, in his Facebook post, that he will be supporting Hagerty.
