Cache Democrats hosting Homecoming Tailgate party

Cache County Democrats are holding a Homecoming tailgate party today starting at 4 p.m. and will run up until time for the Aggie football game which starts at 6:05. Party Chairman Vince Wickwar says the party will be held in the Romney Stadium parking lot at USU and there will be some good fun and some good talk.Wickwar says signatures will also be gathered in an effort to get two important initiatives on the ballot next year: the Utah Fair Boundaries Initiative and another that deals with ethics reform. He says both are extremely important.”We need to have people get out, get signatures for this,” Wickwar says. “The process for initiatives in this state is much more complicated than, say, California. All I can say about their initiatives, a drop of a hat and someone puts an initiative on their ballot. Here it is very rare and it was done with the school voucher process. It was successful.”But he says it will take the work of a lot of people to make this happen.Utah Republican Party Chairman Dave Hansen announced earlier this week that he opposes both initiatives and does not believe they are needed.
