Former Preston resident, Brandon Woolf, was appointed as the new State Controller by Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter on Monday.
Woolf replaced former State controller 73-year-old Donna Jones, who broke her neck in an accident on May 25, 2012 and is still recovering. Woolf will be the 21st controller in Idaho State History.
Jones decided to retire because her recovery is taking longer than she anticipated.
She said she made the decision when she realized she wasn’t able to devote the time necessary to her job after the accident.
“The continued efficient operation of the office is incredibly important to former State Controller Jones,” Woolf said. “I’m honored that Governor Otter trusts me with the responsibility to continue processing payroll for the State’s employees, paying the State’s bills accurately and on time and keeping the State’s largest data center online.”
The state controller is the chief fiscal officer for Idaho State government. Woolf will oversee the accounting and financial records of the state. He will pay all the of the bills and employees for the State of Idaho, as well as prepare the annual financial report.
