Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly, who was under consideration as state Sen. Barbara Buono’s choice for lieutenant governor, has taken himself out of the mix, citing family concerns.
“Basically, I have a young family and the time I would have to commit would make it difficult,” Wimberly said in an interview Thursday. Wimberly has four children and is a teacher and football coach.
“I totally believe in Sen. Buono and I wish under different circumstances I could have went further in the process to be part of it,” he said. “But the timing is tough.”
