Saul withdrawing from Cedar Falls mayor race


The mayoral race in Cedar Falls is now down a candidate. Lea Ann Saul is no longer running to lead the city.

In a release, she sites recent changes in her family for the change of heart.

She says she'll support candidate Frank Darrah, saying the two have similar goals for the leadership of the city.

Darrah is now the only person challenging incumbent Mayor Jon Crews. Crews is running for his 14th term in office.

"When I put my drive and passion behind a decision, I want to give it my full attention, and because of some changes in my family, I will not be able to do that now. I respect what Jon Crews has done in his tenure as mayor, however, I think there is a need for new leadership to carry us into the future," Saul said in a written statement.
