Congratulations to my dear friend David Damschen and his family on the announcement of his new role as CEO of the Utah Housing Corporation. He will be a tremendous advocate for affordable housing in our state.
For the past five years, David has been an effective custodian of taxpayer funds and an incredible public servant as State Treasurer. He is not only respected throughout Utah but across the country as a leader in his field.
As a fellow, independently elected member of the state’s executive branch, I know his job as Treasurer is never easy and I’ve seen his dedication and the quality of his work firsthand. He leaves a talented team and a lot of momentum for his successor.
David will be missed at the State Capitol, but we look forward to working with him in his new role.
