Tom Gallagher, a former Colorado Springs City Council member and former mayoral candidate, withdrew his name from contention in the race for the District 3 council seat Saturday, but his name will remain on the mail-in ballots for the April 2 municipal election already received by voters. Ballots have already been printed and mailed out to voters and will include Gallagher's name. Other candidates in the District 3 race are Keith King, Jim Bensberg, Bob Kinsey, and Brandy Williams. Upon his withdrawal, Gallagher announced his endorsement of King and apologized to anyone who may have already mailed in their ballot.
