Gov. Gary Herbert has appointed Justin Fawson to replace state Rep. Ryan Wilcox, R-Ogden, who recently resigned.

The appointment comes at the recommendation of GOP convention delegates in his House District 7.

However, Fawson still faces a primary election on June 24 against computer consultant Dan Deuel in the race to hold the seat for the next full term. Fawson won 53 percent of delegate votes at the Weber County GOP convention, to 47 percent for Deuel.

"It is my pleasure to appoint Justin to the Utah House of Representatives," Herbert said. "I am confident he will serve our state and the 7th District with diligence and integrity."

"It has been a pleasure serving the residents of North Ogden," said Fawson, who previously served as a North Ogden City Councilman. "I look forward to serving the larger community of Ogden, North Ogden and Pleasant View in this new capacity."

A veteran, Fawson served overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. Fawson is the marketing director at Mountain Alarm.
