Scott Lee Osborne is the new mayor of South Jordan at least for the next two years.
The City Council unanimously appointed Osborne on Tuesday to fulfill the remaining two years of Kent Money's mayoral term. Money is stepping down to take a work assignment from his employer the LDS Church developing properties in New Zealand.
Osborne, a 30-year resident of the city, is a political newcomer who believes the city is on the right course to become a "destination" in the Salt Lake Valley. His experience lies primarily in the business community, where he owns and operates several businesses. Osborne's Engineering Supply Co. sells architectural and engineering supplies, while his Vision Perfect Software Inc. creates programs to run golf tournaments with features such as tournament management and online registration. Osborne also owns a small real estate management company, Millennium III Properties.
