Clayton Town Council Candidate Withdraws From Race - One of the six candidates running in the Clayton Town Council has withdrawn. Rev. Raymond Pittman withdrew his name last week after he learned his church planned to reassign him to the western part of the state. Pittman told Board of Election officials he planned to return to Clayton in two years and hoped to run in the 2007 race. Elections Director Teresa Davis said it was too late to remove Pittman’s name from the ballot. She will inform poll workers not to count votes for Pittman on election night. Three council seats are up for election November 8 in Clayton.
