A Democratic Candidate for McLean County Board in District one has dropped out of the race. Turns out he doesn't live in the district. Greg Putnam of Towanda had been set to run against Don Cavallini in the November election. But, Democratic party official Mike Matejka says he failed to look at the district boundaries when he heard Putnam was a Towanda resident, and part of Towanda is in District two. Matejka has issued a public apology for the error and says Putnam would have made a great candidate.
