Rep. Howard Nielson, R-Utah, has named Ronald Crittenden as his new state director and Doris Wilson as assistant state director over Salt Lake County.

Nielson selected the new staff members after former state Director Robert Jeppsen resigned and former Salt Lake County assistant Director Sam Klemm left to represent Niel-son in northern Utah County and southeastern Utah."It is important to place a strong emphasis throughout the state so the needs of the people are met and that they are properly represented," Nielson said.

Wilson has worked for Nielson since his election to the 3rd District seat in 1982. She spent the first three years in Salt Lake County before moving to the Washington office where she was Nielson's appointment secretary.
