An Enterprise Staff Report
Timothy Jason Jackson is no longer seeking the office of commonwealth’s attorney. Jackson withdrew from the race Friday, filing a notice of candidate withdrawal with the Harlan County Clerk.
Jackson is an assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney to Henry Johnson, who is also running for the position.
Jackson provided a statement on Friday explaining his decision to withdraw from the race.
“Harlan County Voters: My name is Timothy Jason Jackson, a candidate for the position of commonwealth’s attorney. I am writing today to announce my withdrawal from the election… After many days of thought, prayer, and discussion with my wife and other family members, I have decided that withdrawing from the race for commonwealth’s attorney is best for me and my family… To all my supporters that have spread the word and helped with my campaign, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and help. As I said, now is not the the right time for me to run for office, but one day my time will come. My family and I extend a heartfelt appreciation to all who supported my campaign.”
Johnson and attorney Steven Parker Boggs are now the only two candidates for the position.
