May was one of 12 candidates who filed last week to be on the November ballot for one of five seats in District 3 (west end of the county).
“Andrew’s popular column, appearing in the PDN every Sunday, could be seen by the public, and/or by his opponents, as a conflict of interest — a means for Andrew to solicit votes or make an otherwise favorable impression on voters,” said John Brewer, PDN publisher and editor.
“As a result, we would have to suspend it for the duration of the campaign.”
“I filed for a position on the Charter Review Board because of both my extensive knowledge of procedural matters and my desire to serve in a public capacity as a way to give back to an area I love and a community that has treated me and my family so well.
“However, when confronted with a suspension of my article for the duration of the campaign period (six months) due to fairness issues, I contemplated all the wonderful comments I have received from hundreds of gardeners across the Peninsula and quite easily made my decision to withdraw.”
