WATERLOO — Waterloo Village Mayor Jack O'Connor has ended his reelection campaign.

In a surprise statement issued by his son, Shaun, late Monday, Jack O'Connor said "at this time, I will not be seeking re-election as mayor of the village of Waterloo. My current health status led me to reflect on pursuing another four-year term and conclude that I should complete my original term that I was elected to in 2019 and retire from public service."

O'Connor, 80, had been set to oppose Walter M. Bennett, 39, in a Jan. 31 primary election for the Republican line in the March village election.
