An Ossining resident, Burton was the town supervisor from 1991 to 1997.
Burton currently serves in the legislature as chairman of the Housing and Planning and Operations committee, along with Appointments committee.

Burton is the second Democrat to state that reelection was not in the cards. Legislator Martin Rogowsky of Harrison previously announced he would not seek another term.
