Republican Craig Buttars of Lewiston is serving his sixth year as a member of the Cache County Council. He said that ten years in the Utah Legislature have helped qualify him for the job of county executive. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday, Buttars said he’s glad the county council has been able to bring employee salaries and benefits up.
Buttars said delegates asked him why non-Logan residents are not allowed to use the Logan Library.
“I’d like to have more discussion with Logan City,” he said. “Why can’t we as a county come to an agreement with Logan City where all the citizens of the county can use the library? I had an individual tell me he could go to Weber County and get a library card at the Weber Library for free.”
Buttars said he does not know if that is true or not, but that and other library issues should be explored.
Buttars will face two fellow Republicans who are also trying to succeed current Executive Lynn Lemon who is retiring. The others are Boyd Pugmire and Mark Maughan.
