SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The man named as lone finalist for the San Antonio public school superintendent vacancy is withdrawing his candidacy.
 
School board President Ed Garza says Manuel Isquierdo decided withdrawal is the best move for all parties concerned.
 
Despite a 7-0 vote to name Isquierdo the lone finalist for the superintendent's job, some board members expressed concern over his personal financial and legal problems.
 
The superintendent of the Sunnyside Unified School District in Tucson, Ariz., owes $150,000 in federal taxes, had thousands in credit card charges disallowed by the Tucson district, and had his driver's license suspended because of unpaid fines and failing to appear in court. He also lost his home.
