Dear Republicans,

The filing period has ended and there were only three applicants for the vacated County Attorney position. According to the Cache County Republican Party bylaws and Utah state code, we are responsible for nominating three candidates to the Cache County Council.

We want to thank the following individuals for their interest and desire to serve the citizens of Cache County: Dane Murray, Jacob Gordon, John Luthy.

Since only three individuals filed, there is no need to hold a special election. The names of the three candidates will be forwarded to the Cache County Council on Monday, July 19, 2021.

We wish the best to each of the three candidates!
