A member of the Cache County Council will soon be chosen to replace Craig Petersen on the seven-member county council.
Petersen has resigned from that post after 19 years and he will be sworn in as new Logan Mayor on January 7. Petersen is a Republican and Cache County Republican Party Chairman Danny Brownell says the deadline was Sunday night at midnight for becoming a new councilmember to replace Petersen.
By Sunday evening only two people had filed: Greg Merrill and Richard West. West was a write-in candidate for Logan City Mayor and Merrill was Petersen’s campaign manager.
The central committee membership and delegates (approximately 50 people overall) in each of the Logan precincts that Petersen represented will be conducting a non-binding vote on Thursday. The central committee will then conduct a final vote later that evening.
