Due to medical reasons, Bert Cottle, former mayor of Wasilla, has dropped from the race for Mat-Su Borough mayor. The Mat-Su Borough election is Nov. 2.

That leaves two people in the race for mayor: Matthew Beck, a nonpartisan, and Palmer Mayor Edna Devries, a registered Republican.

Cottle announced he is withdrawing from the race in a Facebook post on Monday night. He did not reveal his health condition but asked that people respect his privacy. He said the borough deserves someone who can give it his or her all.
