Burton to end long career as Saline County clerk

January 23, 2012

Nearly 20 years ago, on Jan. 3, 1992, Freddy Burton announced his candidacy for Saline County clerk, a position held at that time by George Ramsey, who was not seeking another term.
Today, at age 64, Burton is making another kind of announcement: "I will not seek another term."
He noted that some people who are already aware of his decision have asked him why he's ending his political career.
"Honestly, I never thought I would stay 20 years," he said. "Someone else needs to have the privilege that I’ve had as county clerk."
