Jason Hopkins, a candidate for the Gavilan College Board, has announced he is no longer interested in the role.
Hopkins is running for the Gavilan College Board of Trustees Area 7 against Irma Gonzalez and Michael Alcorn. It’s one of two open Gavilan College Board seats on the San Benito County ballot.
He also mentioned how he has a disability and he didn’t want to take on the stress involved with such an elected role.
Hopkins, however, will still appear on the ballot and remains eligible to win the seat. Candidates cannot pull themselves off the ballot after a certain point in the election process. Deputy Clerk Angela Curro confirmed Hopkins name will appear on the ballot going out to mail voters next week.
