Issaquah School Board member Suzanne Weaver faces one less challenger in the race for re-election, after a candidate dropped out of the race.
Initially, the race for the Director District No. 5 seat included Weaver, Joseph Arnaud and Issaquah resident Brian Neville.
In filing information, Arnaud listed a Maple Valley address near Tahoma High School, in the neighboring Tahoma School District. Candidates for the Issaquah School Board must reside in the area they seek to represent.
Candidates could withdraw from local races until June 16.
Weaver, a Sammamish resident, has served on the board since January 2007. Director District No. 5 encompasses North Issaquah and part of Sammamish.
Issaquah School District voters face a choice between Weaver and Neville on the November ballot.
The school district includes 98,660 residents in a region from Preston to Newcastle, and from Sammamish to Renton.
