SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert on Thursday appointed H. David Burton to serve on the board of directors of the Utah Transit Authority.
Burton was recently released as the presiding bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a position he held for 16 years.
He previously served as a counselor in the Presiding Bishopric and a budget officer in the LDS Church. He has also worked at Kennecott Utah Copper and the Utah Tax Commission.
The UTA board of directors is composed of 15 individuals. The governor makes one appointment to the board for a term of four years.
“Bishop Burton has a long and distinguished history of leadership and service, both here in Utah and around the world,” Herbert said in a prepared statement. “He has consistently demonstrated a willingness to use his wisdom and vast experience for the betterment of individuals and communities. His service on the board of directors will be a great benefit to UTA and to our whole state.”
