 WILLMAR -- Charles Oakes today withdrew his candidacy in the Willmar City Council Ward 4 special election slated for Nov. 10.

Oakes filed an affidavit of withdrawal today at the City Clerkโ€™s Office.

โ€œAfter visiting with Shawn Mueske and my family, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for the Fourth Ward City Council position,โ€™โ€™ Oakes said. โ€œI am confident that Mr. Mueske is experienced, well qualified, and if he is elected, he will do a wonderful job representing Ward 4.  I encourage my supporters to vote for Shawn in the election on Nov.10, 2015.โ€™โ€™
