NORTH LOGAN – The Cache County GOP will host a Meet the Candidates event Saturday at Green Canyon High School.
“It’s just going to be an informal meet and greet kind of thing,” said Shellie Giddings, the chair of the Cache County Republican Party.
The event is scheduled for noon to 2:30 p.m., following the spring County Central Committee meeting at 10 a.m.
Giddings said that she expects all local hopefuls as well as Congressional and Senate candidates in the GOP primary to attend.
“We really would like all the voters to come to talk with them,” she added.
Sen. Mike Lee will attend, according to Giddings, along with his challengers, former Utah representative Becky Edwards and businesswoman Ally Isom.
In the race for the seat in the Utah’s 1st Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Blake Moore will be on-hand, along with former civilian intelligence officer Andrew Badger and former Morgan County commissioner Tina Cannon.
In the hotly contested State House 2 race, Utah Rep. Mile Petersen (R-UT) and former lawmaker Val Potter will attend.
In local races, Mark R. Hurd and Chris Booth will also attend. They are competing to replace Cache County Council member Gina H. Worthen, who opted out of the race.
Vying for the southeast seat on the county panel will be Kathryn A. Beus and Ladd Kennington. One of those candidates will replace Gordon Zilles, who had previously announced that he would not seek reelection.
Candidates running unopposed include County Executive David Zook; County Attorney John Luthy; County Clerk-Auditor Jess Bradfield; and County Sheriff Chad Jensen.
Newcomer Sandi Goodlander will also run unopposed for the Logan 3 seat on the Cache County Council, replacing Paul Borup.
Green Canyon High School is located at 2960 Wolf Pack Way North in North Logan.
