w n. fff ' - ' f Christopher R. Reastoé, of 1503 E. Park Place, annbunced today he is no longer a candidate for a seat on the Ann Arbor Board of Education in the June 11 race. Reaske may get a few votes anyway, however, because he did not announce his plans soon enough to get his name taken off the ballot. The official deadline for withdrawing from the race was last Thursday at 4 p.m. Reaske explained: "My decisión to withdraw is a personal one, and primarily reflects my belief that I can best serve this community, for the present time, through my teaching at the University and through participation as a parent in the schools my children attend. "With incumbent Charles Good, who has also withdrawn, I f eel that there are other good candidates and I hope that the vote can be less diffused than in previous elections," he said. Reaske's announcement narrows to eight the number of candidates who are still actively running in the June 11 race for one open school board seat. They are: Henry Alting, 4880 Grandview; Wendy Barhydt, 820 Bruce St.; Merrylin "Terry" Martin, 1565 Roxbury Rd.; Patricia Pooley, 16 Geddes Heights; Charles Votaw, 2182 Yorktown Dr.; Paul Weinhold, 3O07 Lexington; Judith Ann Wood, 2917 Ward CL; and Diana Autin, 1018 Church St.
