CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- One of the independent candidates for a spot on the Charlottesville City Council has decided to drop out.

Cassie Clawson's race was focused on expanding public transportation and affordable housing.

She was also in favor of removing the Confederate statues.

On Friday, Clawson submitted paperwork to have her name removed from the ballot.

There are still six candidates in the race for two open seats.

Heather Hill and Amy Laufer are Democrats. John Hall, Kenny Jackson, Paul Long and Nikuyah Walker are independents.
