BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Former Bowling Green City Commissioner Slim Nash is dropping out of the race for city commission this fall.
Nash served four terms on the commission from 2004-2012.
During that time, he supported the passage of the TIF district, the building of the skate park and also the passage of the city wide smoking ban.
He lost a bid for re-election in 2012, but was coming back for another shot in 2014.
Nash said he's dropping out because his daughter is facing a serious medical operation.
"I 100% want to be a City Commissioner again, it's at this time, more important for me to be 100% a father to my daughter when she's going through something so difficult," said Slim Nash.
Nash's daughter Presley is facing a surgery that requires at least six to eight weeks recovery during the height of campaign season.
Nash is officially dropping out on Monday, but he said he hopes to be back on the campaign trail in 2016.
