SALT LAKE CITY – Kevin Jacobs has been selected to succeed his former boss in the position of Salt Lake County assessor.
Lee Gardner, who had been county assessor for 19 years, resigned from the elected office earlier this year to go on a mission in Spain for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Salt Lake County Republicans on Thursday elected Jacobs to serve out Gardner’s unexpired term, which ends in January 2015. Jacobs is a longtime deputy in the office, serving as a fiscal manager, director of motor vehicles and director of administration, among other duties.
The Salt Lake County Council will decide at an upcoming meeting whether to confirm Jacobs’ appointment.
