SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Governor Gary Herbert has appointed and sworn in Paradise farmer and former congressional aide Casey Snider to fill a Utah House vacancy created by the resignation of former Rep. Curt Webb, a fellow Republican.

Herbert appointed Snider on Tuesday to serve the last few months of Webb’s term for a House seat representing part of Cache County in northern Utah.

Snider is running against Democrat Karina Brown in the Nov. 6 general election.

Webb resigned Oct. 1 to serve a mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Hawaii.
