BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – One candidate withdrew from the mayoral race in Oak Island Thursday, but that doesn't mean incumbent Mayor Betty Wallace will be guaranteed the position.

Steve Isley Jr., the General Manager at Oak Island Golf and Country Club, decided not to run after all.

Wallace is now facing two challengers this year: Scott Coe, an Agronomist for Synagro, a Residuals Management Company; and Charles Warren, a former commissioner who lost his race for re-election last year.

Warren has clashed with board members in the past, and Wallace has voiced her concerns that some of that controversy could be brought to Oak Island if he were to be elected.

We reached out to Warren last week about the race, but he declined to comment.

Coe said earlier this month the town's morale is at an all time low and questioned Wallace's leadership qualities.

The municipal elections will take place November 5.
