Former Preston resident Brandon Woolf, the chief deputy of the Idaho Controllers Office, was appointed interim State Controller by Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter Tuesday, July 10.
State controller Donna Jones was injured in an accident on May 25, 2012, in the Rupert/ Burley area and has been recuperating in the hospital. Woolf said Jones could be gone for two months or maybe longer depending on her recovery time.
The temporary appointment, made at the request of Controller Jones, ensures operations at her office continue uninterrupted as she continues the intensive rehabilitation phase of her recovery. It will remain in effect until she is ready to return to the office.
“Donna takes her oath of office to uphold the Constitution and faithfully discharge her duties very seriously,” Governor Otter said. “Above all things, she puts her responsibilities to the people of Idaho first. That’s why she requested that I appoint Brandon to temporarily lead the Controller’s office – with all the duties, responsibilities and authority of that office – while Donna focuses on her physical rehabilitation and recovery.”
