Todd Robinson is withdrawing his candidacy for the District 2 seat on the Atlanta City Council.
Some of the neighborhoods in District 2 include Inman Park, Poncey Highlands, the Old Fourth Ward and Midtown. Redrawn district lines will go into effect in 2014.
Robinson, a 32-year-old attorney who lives in Midtown, announced a few weeks ago that he was running. He said in a Tuesday email to Patch:
I have informed my supporters that I am withdrawing my name from consideration in this year's Atlanta City Council election. After further consideration and discussions with my family, I have come to the realization that the timing of my effort is not quite right. I will continue to serve my community in many other ways and will re-evaluate public service at a later date.
Kwanza Hall is the incumbent. Jon Jones also says he's running for the District 2 seat.
