A candidate for the Gore Ward 5 trustee post, whose candidacy was contested last week, withdrew from the election Friday. Detis Stricker withdrew after Bobby L. Warren of Gore contended that Stricker was not a registered voter for the required six months prior to filing a declaration of candidacy, as required by state law. A hearing on the contest, slated by the Sequoyah County Election Board, was scheduled for Feb. 11, but has now been cancelled. However, Stricker’s withdrawal leaves no candidate for the Ward 5 post. The municipal elections will be April 7.
