Dallas school teacher Jacinto Valdespino suspended his campaign Saturday for the District 9 seat on the Dallas City Council.

Valdespino made the announcement on Facebook, about three weeks after he said he would run for the seat, which Councilman Mark Clayton will vacate.

Valdespino is a teacher at the Dallas Independent School District’s Hector Garcia Middle School and a former U.S. Marine, according to his Facebook profile.

The remaining candidates include Paula Blackmon, Tamara Brown, Sarah Lamb and Erin Moore.
