Paul Parker, county real property manager, said he has decided to withdraw from the race for register of deeds.
That leaves incumbent Pam Hurst with opposition from Ryan Epperson.
Mr. Parker said, "Due to my responsibilities as real property manager for Hamilton County government, I have officially withdrawn my name as a candidate for the register of deeds.
"I sincerely appreciate all my family and friends who have supported me through their encouragement and offers of financial support. As a lifelong citizen of Hamilton County, I believe we should continue to expect accountability from our elected leaders and government officials.
"I strongly encourage everyone to know their candidates and vote for the ones who will best represent the interest of all the citizens of Hamilton County."
