Come January, Cache County will have a new representative in the Utah Legislature. Val Potter was elected in November to replace Jack Draxler, who chose not to seek re-election, in Legislative District 3.
And while he may be a new face in the House of Representatives, Potter is not a newcomer to politics, having served the community in many capacities.
He is leaving a position on the Cache County Council where he has served since 2011. He is the former Mayor of North Logan, serving from 2002-2006, and a former member of the North Logan City Council (1992-1996.) Potter serves in the Republican Party as both a state and county delegate and as a member of the Republican Party State Central Committee. He is a board member of the Bear River Association of Governments, the Airport Authority Board, the RAPZ Committee and the Cache Chamber of Commerce.
Potter, a Utah State University Graduate and small business owner, works as the Executive Director of Development at the USU College of Engineering. He is married to Nancy Hansen Potter, and they have three children. Legislative District 3 represents the northern end of Cache Valley.
