Jeff Koenig has ended his candidacy to become Fayetteville’s mayor due to a non-life-threatening, health-related issue, according to a statement issued Tuesday from his campaign.

Koenig’s assistant campaign manager, Katherine Skordal, confirmed the decision. She said Koenig was out of town Tuesday and unavailable for comment.

In the release, Koenig said he decided not to seek office at this time after consulting with his doctor, and instead will concentrate on recovering.

The statement did not provide any details about the ailment that prompted Koenig's decision.
