Rep. Jon Cox, R-Ephraim announced Wednesday that he would be resigning from the Utah House of Representatives effective immediately. Cox will be joining Governor Herbert’s office as Director of Communications.
Speaker Hughes commented, “Representative Cox has been a valuable asset to this body and has represented his constituents well. Jon worked tirelessly to make good policy better and I have no doubt he’ll take that desire and resolve to the Governor’s office. We’re thankful for his contribution and wish him well.”
The Republican Party is now tasked with choosing a replacement for House District 58, who will then be appointed by the Governor and serve the remainder of the elected term.
