BOCA RATON — Political newcomer Marc Allen Brown who filed to run against incumbent Mayor Susan Haynie in the upcoming municipal elections has withdrawn from the race, according to city documents.

That leaves Haynie running unopposed in her bid for re-election.

Brown cited “conflicts of interest with current business and positions I hold” in his withdrawal letter to the city clerk, sent on Dec. 12. Brown, who did not respond to The Palm Beach Post’s requests for interview, is a local financial adviser, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Haynie has been mayor of Boca Raton for the past three years and launched her re-election campaign in early December.

Haynie told The Post in December that she aims to continue to advocate for quiet zones as Florida East Coast Railway train horns pass through Boca Raton; promote economic development and the retention of jobs in Boca Raton; and continue to increase levels of of service for public safety, following the addition of new police and fire rescue personnel in this coming year’s city budget.
