FORT ST. JOHN, BC -- One of the candidates in the Fort St. John mayoral race has dropped out.

Steven Haab has withdrawn his name from the ballot. That leaves three remaining candidates: current City Councillor Lilia Hansen, and newcomers Shannon Stange and Steven Labossiere.

All three will be competing for the mayor’s seat. Current mayor Lori Ackerman is not running for re-election.

All municipal elections will take place on October 15th.
