Restauranteur Taylor Berger has dropped his bid for a seat on the Shelby County Commission.
According to his campaign's Facebook page, Berger said the race would add to his already busy schedule and he didn't want to jeopardize his family and business concerns.

"I ran because I wanted to make a difference. I still do, but my wife, Alison, works and we have two young children. I’m helping open three restaurants this summer, plus Tennessee Brewery Untapped. I am a marketing consultant and am completing my real estate license. I am committed to Make Memphis! and several other non-profit and faith-based initiatives. To run this race right, I’d jeopardize my family and business.

I'm so grateful for all the support I've received, and look forward to doing great things in this city for a long time to come!"
