Governor Gary Herbert made several stops, including one at KVNU, when he brought his re-election campaign to Cache County on Tuesday. He said it made him feel like home when he visited a meeting of the Cache County Council Tuesday night.

Herbert was a county commissioner for more than 14 years in Utah County. Herbert told the council that he understands the important role county officials play in the success of the state.

“It’s your backyards,” said Herbert. “It’s you that are putting policy in place that enables our citizens to have a good quality of life, that empowers the private sector. The things you do with policy, with zoning, with taxation, all the things you do to maintain your roads, your infrastructure go to a great quality of life.

“Cache County is a great example of economic success, a great quality of life in a very beautiful part of our state.”

Governor Herbert said he heard a lot of praise about Cache County from Tami Pyfer, former member of the Logan Municipal Council who now serves as the governor’s education director.
