Third-place candidate Jack Guerrero, another Republican had 19.4 percent of the vote.
It was the third time that Conlon, who has been a member of Atherton's Rail Committee since 2004 and is a former member of its Audit and Finance Committee, has run for the state treasurer position.
He has also run for Atherton City Council at least twice, in 2012 and 2013, and ran against Rich Gordon for a state Assembly seat in 2010.
A retired senior partner in a major accounting firm, Conlon served six years on the California Public Utilities Commission, including two years as president, and two years on the state's Transportation Commission. He has a law degree from the University of San Francisco.
On his GregConlon.com website, Conlon says he has a good chance of winning the election because, after three campaigns, he should have name recognition and no incumbent is running.
