FARMINGTON — Joe Hubbard, who was running for Aztec City Commission, and Aerial Liese, or Anne J. Liese, who was running for Farmington City Council, have withdrawn from the city races.

City elections are March 6. Hubbard was running against Rosalyn Fry and Joel Barton for the District 2 City Commission seat. Liese was running against Janis Jakino and Patrick Manchester for the District 4 City Council seat.

While the candidates have withdrawn from the races, they may choose to run in the future.

"Largely, my withdrawal is a matter of timing," Liese said in an email to The Daily Times. "Politics is all about timing and my time has not come."
