Former GOP party chairman announces run for Utah House

The former chairman of the Cache Republican Party is running for a seat in the Utah House of Representatives.Just a day after House District 4 Rep. Fred Hunsaker announced he would not seek another term, David Butterfield announced his candidacy.”I recognize the great honor and responsibility of representing the Republican Party and the people of Logan and Rich County,” Butterfield said. “I also recognize the great leadership we have had from Representative Hunsaker, a longtime friend, a true statesman and advocate for Utah, Cache and Rich Counties, Logan, and Utah State University.”In a press release issued by the Butterfield campaign, Butterfield cited three main points on which his candidacy and presumed service as a legislator would be built. Those points include economic development for Northern Utah, strengthening educational institutions and ensuring limited government through preserving states’ rights, limiting federal intrusion and preserving individual liberties.Butterfield is a 1996 graduate of Utah State University and will receive his MBA from BYU this summer. He served as a member of the USU Board of Trustees from 1994 to 1995 and is the chief marketing and operations officer for the USU Charter Credit Union.
