SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert nominated a Park City lawyer to fill a vacancy on the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission.

Tom Jacobson has practiced law in Utah and California for the past 40 years. He has an undergraduate degree from Utah State University and a law degree from the University of Utah.

“I am honored and humbled by the governor’s confidence in me, and if confirmed, it is my intention to take on this responsibility with absolute dedication and service to the people of Utah," he said.

Jacobson's appointment is subject to Utah Senate approval. He would replace Jeff Wright, whose term expired in July.

The seven-member commission oversees the activities of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, sets policy, and issues liquor licenses and permits.
