City council candidate drops out of race
One of four candidates for four Tipp City council seats on the Nov. 7 ballot said he will withdraw from the race.
Ryan August said on Oct. 10 that responsibilities of a new job caused him to not pursue the seat. Three other candidates are running uncontested. They include incumbents Joe Gibson and Katelyn Berbach and newcomer Frank Scenna.
This was August’s first run for council. He said he would be interested in seeking a council seat in the future. Vacancies on council are filled with an appointment by the council, according to the city charter.
