Contrary to reports Friday, Asheville City Council candidate Selina Sullivan remains in the race for today’s primary election, instead of dropping out after an arrest last week on charges of writing bad checks.
“Any communication she made about dropping out of the race was to the Citizen-Times or other media outlets,” Director of Elections Trena Parker told Xpress. “She has not contacted us.”
Parker confirmed that any votes cast for Sullivan will still be counted.
Sullivan has not yet returned calls for comment about her decision.
