Party to fill Executive Committee positions in October

The resignation in June of two members of the Cache Executive Committee has left vacancies in a co-chair position in both Legislative Districts 4 and 5.

At their Fall meeting on October 5 , the Cache Central Committee will select two interim replacements to fill the remainder of the terms which expire in the Spring of 2017.

Those interested in filling the seats (you must live in the district) must send a letter of  intent to County Chair Boyd Pugmire no later than 5 p.m. Oct. 4, 2016.  He can be emailed at boydpugmire@gmail.com

The Cache Central Committee meets at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016 in the Historic County Courthouse, 199 N. Main, Logan.

Legislative District 4 roughly covers Logan City; Legislative District 5 roughly covers the South end of Cache County (Hyrum, Wellsville, Providence, Paradise, etc.). If you are not sure which District you live in, check the state voter website. Make sure you select “State House”  to find your District. See below for precincts listed for each district.

Although the bylaws authorize the County Chair to fill the vacancy until the Central Committee can vote on a replacement, the Cache Executive Committee voted July 6 to wait until the Central Committee meeting to fill the seats. The Executive Committee felt that filling the seats beforehand could give an unfair advantage.
