The Clay County Democratic Central Committee appointed Aron Royer to the position of Clay County Assessor at its caucus Saturday afternoon.
"We had two good candidates. They were both very good," said Ann Bradshaw, Vice Chairman of the Clay County Democratic Central Committee. "They both are business-minded."
Through his real estate experience, Royer has become acquainted with the goings-on of the Assessor's Office. Brian Wyndham was also considered for the position, which opened after the resignation of C.R. Boyd.
Royer will assume his duties as assessor after being sworn in Monday morning.
