BOCA RATON — Alfred “Al” Zucaro, who announced his bid for mayor of Boca Raton last week, stepped down as the publisher of a local blog that takes stances on city issues.

Zucaro turned over operation of the blog BocaWatch to staff member Jim Woods on Monday, according to the website. BocaWatch, populated by both staff-created and resident-curated posts, is generally critical of over-development in the city and the leaders who support it.

Zucaro stepped down as publisher “in the best interest of the public,” he said in a video.

Zucaro filed to run at 10 a.m. on Jan. 11, the final day in the qualifying period for the March 14 municipal election. His sole opponent is incumbent Mayor Susan Haynie.

Zucaro, a nine-year resident of Boca Raton, served as a city commissioner in West Palm Beach for eight years and once unsuccessfully ran for mayor of West Palm.
