Nevel Overton Slack is the Republican candidate for the treasurer's office.
"I believe because of the extremely light turn-out, a three-vote difference is not showing any clear choice from the voters," Burek said. "Many people I have spoken to since did not understand the importance of voting at the primary. Judging by the overwhelming positive response I am getting from the residents during my campaign, I am glad I have continued the race."
Residents will have to write in Burek's name in a blank space next to a blank bubble on the ballot.
Burek is part of the current voting block of Trustee Bill Tobler, Clerk Kathy Giszczak and Trustee Brian Shelby.
