Jessup withdraws from City Council race

by Marshall Haley, staff reporter

   WOODINVILLE--Former Woodinville Councilmember Mark Jessup withdrew his candidacy for the Council's Position No. 4, on Tuesday, Aug. 24.

   "I extend my congratulations to Mr. Hageman," Jessup said, referring to Position No. 4 incumbent Deputy Mayor Scott Hageman. "It became obvious, once I had declared my candidacy, that I simply do not have the appropriate time and energy needed for the position. Too many other areas of my life would suffer as a consequence."

   Jessup is the Northwest Regional Sales Manager for a hydraulic components company in Bellevue. In his spare time, he enjoys drawing and submitting social commentary cartoons to the Woodinville Weekly. He teaches Sunday school and works with youth activities at the Woodinville Alliance Church.
