JOLIET – A Democratic candidate for Will County Board District 9 dropped out of the race this week.

Democrat Norbert Likar, of Crest Hill, withdrew his candidacy to run for a seat on the Will County Board on Friday, according to a press release from the Will County Clerk.

Likar was going up against a relatively large field with five other Democrats, Rachel F. Ventura, Todd C. Randich, Jim Murphy, Sherry Williams and Danganetta Harris, and Republican Annette Parker.

Likar previously ran for and lost a bid for Lockport Township Highway Commissioner in 2013 to Republican John Cielenski by less than 1 percent of the vote.

The General Primary will be held March 20.
