David Erickson, a resident of Smithfield, has been serving as a member of the Cache County Council for the last year. He was appointed by the Republican Party to replace Craig Buttars who was elected as Cache County Executive in November, 2014.
Now Erickson has filed his intention to run for a four year seat on the council and he is out to get the required 154 signatures.
“I think it’s kind of a neat opportunity for me to get out there and talk to people,” Erickson says. “There will be at least 154 people that you’ll talk to. They’re going to not only sign it, they’re probably going to say, ‘Yeah, I’ll sign it and this is what I expect.’ That is what I’d like to hear.”
Erickson describes his last year on the Council as a “learning experience” and he hopes to be able to continue to represent his district.
