The Salt Lake City Council informally selected a new executive director Tuesday to replace outgoing director Linda Hamilton.

Cindy Gust-Jenson, now serving as the City Council's community relations coordinator, will assume the executive director's seat on Feb. 21, following formal approval by the council on Feb. 14."I've very much enjoyed my work with the council so I'm looking forward to this change," she said.

Before coming to the council staff, Gust-Jenson, 29, was public relations and education director for the Utah Health Care Association for five years.
