MADISON (WKOW) -- Ananda Mirilli says she won't pursue a write-in campaign for a seat on the Madison School Board.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the third-place finisher in the February primary said Wednesday night she won't campaign any further after the top vote-getter dropped out of the race suddenly. Mirilli was set to make an announcement about her future Thursday.

Sarah Manski, who won the primary, will still be on April's ballot, along with T.J. Mertz, who came in second in the primary. Manski announced two days after the primary she was leaving the state because her husband was accepted into a PhD program at a school in California.

Mirilli told the Wisconsin State Journal, "It is unfortunate that the voters in the greater Madison area were denied a real choice in the general election." She says she would like to run for school board in the future, but acknowledged the chances of winning a write-in campaign were slim.
