Bill Johnston not a candidate for City Council despite inclusion on ballots

Ballots for the elections of Craig City Council and mayoral positions were mailed out Monday, though voters are advised to remember one of the candidates included in the list is no longer eligible.

Votes for former candidate Bill Johnston, whose name is featured on the ballot, will not be included in the final results. Johnston was one of two candidates who dropped out of the race shortly after filing to run, but because he did so after ballots were already printed, his name still appears on the document.

Election personnel said any votes Johnston receives in this election will be disregarded and residents should remember this when casting their ballots.
