Bao Vang drops out of city council race

Bao Vang will not be seeking election to the St. Paul City Council. As reported in today's Pioneer Press, she has bowed out of the Ward One race. In 2003 Vang lost by 357 votes to Debbie Montgomery. Vang told City Pages on Friday that she intended to once again challenge for the central St. Paul post, but apparently changed her mind over the weekend. Her decision leaves Melvin Carter III as the primary challenger to Montgomery.
