George Cantor, the mayor’s opponent in this year’s election, gave his condolences on the passing of the mayor Robert Veneble’s son, Sebastian Veneble.

“I am very sorry for his loss,” Cantor said. “I hope he gets good rest.”

Cantor is not relenting in the race for mayor, despite Robert Veneble suspending his campaign.

“It’s just further proof that I’m the best candidate for the job,” Cantor said.

The mayor’s economic policies are hurting business and I think it’s time for the mayor to step down,” he said.
