TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Candidate for Leon County School Superintendent Jackie Pons finally responded to the negative backlash he's received following a campaign ad that ran once on Monday. 

We reached out to Pons and all other contenders in the race for comment on Monday and after failing to answer our request, Pons emailed us on Tuesday with an apology.

He said, "I would like to apologize to Mr. Hanna and his family, our community and everyone involved. The ad was pulled from airwaves Monday morning. I look ahead to moving forward to talk about the positive impact our district has on our community for the previous 10 years."

The race for superintendent will be decided on November 8th.
