Former North Logan mayor Val Potter running for County Council seat

Val Potter, a former mayor of North Logan, has announced his candidacy for the Cache County Council.Potter will seek the seat vacated by Brian Chambers, who has said he will not seek re-election.”I’ve been thinking about running for a position on the County Council since I was mayor of North Logan,” Potter said Wednesday. Potter served as North Logan mayor from 2002 to 2006. “I saw this body of government as having the most ability to make a positive long term difference in Cache Valley.”Potter said one of the biggest issues he thinks the valley is facing is transportation and planning for the future. He said he’d like to do his part to act as a representative of his district to help make the right decisions for the future.”I also see zoning as a major issue, as well as managing the future growth of our county,” he said. “I fought to stop anyt ax increases in North Logan City all the years of my service, and was successful in doing so. My goal as a conservative is to do everything I can to stop increasing taxes and ensure properly managed county government.”Potter said he doesn’t know of any members on the current Cache County Council who have the elected city office experience that he has, and he said he’d like to be able to make a difference and help in efforts to build cooperation between the county and city governments.Potter works full time as a fundraiser with the Utah State University College of Engineering.
