<strong>LOGAN—</strong> There is a lot of talk about presidential candidates – incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney – but Cache County Clerk Jill Zollinger said there are actually five other candidates for president whose names are on the ballot. Former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, Jill Stein, Gloria LaRiva, Gary Johnson and Virgil Goode are all on the list.
On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Zollinger said there is just one referendum on the ballot this year and that is Cache County’s RAPZ Tax referendum. She said that stands for Recreation, Arts, Parks and Zoos – a one-tenth of one percent sales tax authorized in 2002, which expires this year.
“Money has gone out to a lot of different cities and made many opportunities for different people to enjoy a lot of parks and … the zoo was getting funding,” Zollinger said.
Elected officials are not allowed to spend money promoting the RAPZ Tax referendum, but Zollinger said they hope residents will support it realizing how much good it’s done in local communities.
