Bowling Green Fourth Ward Council member Greg Robinette has asked the Board of Elections to remove his name from the ballot for the May 7 primary election due to an upcoming military deployment.
In addition to his law practice, he serves as a colonel in the Ohio Army National Guard. In that capacity, he commands the 371st Sustainment Brigade. In a few months, the 371st Sustainment Brigade Headquarters will be mobilized in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and Robinette will be deployed overseas through early March 2014.
Robinette said that if he ran and was re-elected, he "would be forbidden by Department of Defense directive from campaigning or even discussing the campaign with supporters. Therefore, I would be unable to campaign or participate in any way prior to the Nov. 5, 2013 general election.
"Although I am unable to run for re-election, the citizens of Bowling Green's Fourth Ward are fortunate to have Theresa Charters Gavarone on the ballot. She is an extremely qualified candidate and is ready to represent the citizens of Bowling Green. Most importantly, she fully understands the vital role of economic development and the need to create and maintain an environment where existing businesses thrive and grow," said Robinette.
