And then there were six: Ferlo drops out of mayor's race

Posted By on Fri, Mar 15, 2013 at 3:01 PM

Just days after filing the petitions to put himself on the May primary ballot, Jim Ferlo has dropped out of the mayor's race. In a statement, Ferlo cited the short amount of time in which to mount a campaign based on "grassroots fundraising and mobilization of people power."

"Others have been running for Mayor for the last several years," Ferlo's release added, somewhat tartly.

Goddamn, I'm gonna miss him.

Still, Ferlo's move was something less than a total surprise; he had declined an invitation to appear at a mayoral debate this Sunday, and he sounded somewhat ambivalent about the prospects for a run even after filing his papers.
