Comanche County Treasurer Barbara Burk has announced her resignation, effective at the end of business Wednesday.
The Comanche County commissioners accepted Burk’s resignation during Monday’s regular weekly meeting.
After the meeting, Burk said in an interview that she is facing some health issues that have caused her to make the decision to leave office.
Burk has served as treasurer for seven years. She started her career with the county 28 years ago in the treasurer’s office, where she has worked ever since.
“I’ve enjoyed my time here at the county,” Burk said. “I’ve had a great career and made a lot of friends.”
Her first deputy, Rhonda Brantley, will serve as acting treasurer for the time being. The term is set to expire July 6, 2015.
Brantley is running for the office of treasurer as the Democratic candidate. She will face Republican candidate Joe Wotring in November’s general election.
“There’s a lot of good memories in this courthouse,” Burk said.
There will be a farewell party for Burk from 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, in Room 302 — the commissioners’ court — of the Comanche County Courthouse.
