OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A Weber County commissioner is leaving his post to serve as a deputy director with the Utah Department of Natural Resources.
The Standard-Examiner reports Commissioner Kerry Gibson will officially resign from his position Jan. 12.
Gibson has served as a Weber County commissioner for seven years.
He has about a year left in his term.
Department of Natural Resources Executive Director Mike Styler says in a statement that Gibson’s experience as farmer, state legislator and a county commissioner makes him qualified to serve as a deputy director.
Hooper City Councilwoman Lori Brinkerhoff and Utah Rep. Justin Fawson have expressed interested in the county seat.
Weber County Republican Party Central Committee and Executive Committee members will select a replacement for Gibson.
