We have three outstanding folks up for re-election this year and one open seat.
These folks need your support.
We MUST keep Conservative voices on the County Council.
Barbara is seeking her second term on the Council.
She has been married to Gary B. Tidwell for nearly 50 years. She retired from the banking industry after 32 years of employment.
Upon accepting her election in 2016 she said, "I look forward to serving on the Cache County Council as I want to take the opportunity to give back to my community. I want to make well informed decisions and keep in touch with the people in the county. I also would like to encourage others to become involved in this great democratic system that we are so blessed to have in our lives."
Karl is the current Chair of the County Council and is seeking reelection. Upon assuming his role in 2016 he had this to say.
"In this time of national and political turmoil, one of the most important things we can do as locally elected officials is to work to ensure that our communities are as sound and stable as possible. I have tried to use this mantra as I served on the Logan City Council and on the Logan City Planning Commission.
I look forward to working on the Cache County Council and helping us in Cache County avoid the pitfalls often experienced when some organizations of government overspend, overreach, and over control.
Working as a commercial banker and as an adjunct business professor, I understand the importance of sound financial management. Property taxes are increasing and I heard of an elderly lady who has put her house up for sale because the taxes keep going up. Sometimes we don’t realize that $10 or $20 extra expense per month is a hardship for some, especially those on fixed incomes. I want to try and find ways to fund the needed infrastructure projects in ways that don’t unfairly burden our citizens. I am very excited to serve those who elected me. Thank you."
There are a lot of good people in this valley, but a lot of them are not willing to serve in public offices. Dave Erickson is one of those people who is willing to serve in public office. I have known Dave Erickson for almost 30 years and had the pleasure of working or serving with him on committees or organizations for almost the last 20 years, and they have been some of the best experiences that I’ve had. He is a good, honest person. He was born and raised in Cache Valley, his roots are very deep and he loves this valley. He will continue do the very best for Cache County for its growth, its agriculture, and its future.
