Retired Lake Havasu City Manager Charlie Cassens announced Monday on Facebook that he is withdrawing from the District 3 Mohave County Board of Supervisors race. That leaves incumbent Buster Johnson as the only person who has officially declared intent to seek that office.
"I have come to realize that I am simply not ready to give up the next four years of my hard-earned retirement," Cassens' post said. ``There is still time for another candidate to step up and I sincerely hope that happens. Thanks to everyone who contributed their time, effort and money into the campaign." Cassens pledged he'll remain active in community affairs. ``Despite my purely selfish reason for stepping out of the political arena, I do plan to stay involved in the community I love through volunteer service and participation in local projects and causes," Cassens said.
