The Jefferson County Republican party Monday night nominated Beaumont financial adviser Allison Getz for county tax assessor-collector.

The wife of Beaumont city councilman Mike Getz would succeed Shane Howard if elected.

She has been with Merrill Lynch and UBS since 1995, and has served as chairperson of the Jefferson County investment advisory committee.

The Beaumont Forest Park High School grad has been on the boards of Gift of Life, Some Other Place, and has volunteered with Garth House and other organizations.

Local Democrats will pick their nominee Tuesday night.
