(Harrisburg) -- Commonwealth Court has upheld a Dauphin County judge's decision to remove Nevin Mindlin's name from Harrisburg's mayoral ballot.

Mindlin, and independent candidate, was thrown off the ballot in August because he failed to identify a 'committee to fill vacancies' on his nominating papers.

He expressed his disappointment in a statement released today. The statement indicates Mindlin does not intend to wage a write-in campaign.

Today's ruling means there will be two candidates on Harrisburg's November fifth mayoral ballot -- Eric Papenfuse and Dan Miller.

Lewis Butts is pressing forward with a write-in campaign. He garnered only 64 votes in May's Democratic primary.
