Corey Pilsch, one of the four Republican candidates who will be on the June 3 ballot for Clerk and Recorder, has officially dropped out of the race.
According to a May 1 statement, Pilsch said the timing was not right for him to be running for the elected position.
“I would like to publically announce that I am not longer a candidate even though the ballots are printed and my name cannot be removed,” Pilsch wrote. “I do not want any of our citizens to waste their vote.”
Pilsch also announced that he is supporting Debbie Pierson in the race.
Pilsch, 44, has worked for the county for almost 13 years, starting as a truck driver, then becoming a right-of-way specialist and foreman for the crusher. He now works as a crew foreman for the Flathead County Roads Department.
