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.
Town Clerk Kathleen Dominguez said Farrell’s name will not appear on the ballot.
Farrell, a 58-year-old flooring distributor, said he was getting out of the race because he wouldn’t be able to commit 100% to the position due to family obligations.
“I have advocated for a change in the mayor’s office and do not want to split the vote for change without being very confident that I would carry the day,” he said.
With Farrell out, it is a two-man contest between incumbent David Stewart, 67, and Robert Hagerty, 56.
Farrell said he would support Hagerty.
