It started out as a baker’s dozen, but now there are just 12.

Newcomer Revelstoke city council candidate Karen Schneider has withdrawn her candidacy.

She explained her reasons in an email. “I came to the conclusion that the time requirements were too much for me given the fact that I started my own business just four months ago and am still working on getting that established.,” Schneider said on Oct. 22. “I feel if I were to be elected, I would end up compromising either my business, or the work I would like to do with council.”

She added she’d be interested in running next time and would like to get involved with city committees in the meantime.

“Another contributing factor for my decision is that I feel there are some really good candidates who are running, who if elected, will bring similar priorities and issues to the forefront of council work that I would have been committed to,” Schneider said.
