SAN MARCOS — A challenger has dropped out of the San Marcos City Council race, narrowing the field to three.Ruben “RJ” Hernandez, who was one of two newcomers — Matthew Stack is the other — challenging incumbents Rebecca Jones and Sharon Jenkins, recently announced he was withdrawing from the race due to financial issues.Hernandez, 35, was a self-described “independent, pro-business, anti-fire and pro-opportunity” candidate.“Meaning, I’m here to bolster business growth (jobs), protect our community from fire and work with and within the community to give those looking to step up and advance, the chance to do so,” Hernandez said on his page.According to a statement he emailed to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Hernandez said the campaign caused “business and financial setbacks that have made it untenable for me to continue.”
