Governor Gary Herbert announced on Thursday afternoon that he has appointed Carbon County native Robert Pero to serve on the Utah State Tax Commission.
Pero will resign his current post as Carbon County Clerk/Auditor upon his confirmation by the Utah State Senate. He previously served on the Utah Association of Counties' Revenue and Taxation Steering Committee, and was appointed by then Lt. Governor Herbert in 2006 to represent Utah on the United States Election Assistance Commission Standards Board.
Pero attended Utah State University for a Master degree in computer science and applied statistics, and received his Bachelor's degree in business and economics at the University of Utah.
