Jennifer Robison, a certified public accountant with an office in Brownwood, will be the new Brown County auditor.
    35th District Judge Steve Ellis announced Robison’s appointment in a press release Friday. Robison replaces Nina Cox, who has resigned effective May 31.
    “She is extremely well qualified,” Ellis said of Robison in the release.
    Ellis said the auditor is appointed on a two-year basis, and Robison will fill Cox’s unexpired term, which ends Dec. 31.
    Robison will be present for a public hearing concerning the setting of her salary at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the district courtroom, Ellis said.
    Robison, a 1994 graduate of Comanche High School and 1999 graduate of Tarleton State University, has been the owner and managing member of Saladino and Robison, LLC in Brownwood since January 2009.
     Robison will be allowed to continue with her private practice as a CPA “with the understanding that she will perform all of the duties required by law of the Brown County auditor and avoid any conflict of interest between her role as a CPA and her duties as the Brown County auditor,” Ellis said in the release.
    “Her role will be done in a similar way as previous Brown County auditors who also maintained their practices as CPAs while serving as the auditor, such as Betty Bell and Rex Bessent.”
    Robison has been a CPA since 2003 and previously worked as a CPA in Stephenville and Fort Worth, Ellis said. Robison also worked as a tax associate in Fort Worth.
    Robison began her career as an accountant in 1999 in Lubbock.
