We were disappointed to read the endorsement of Commissioner Dearden in yesterday's Standard Examiner editorial. An Ogden Valley voice is noticeably lacking on the Commission and Lewis Johnson of Huntsville is our guy.
Lewis is well experienced as he has served on the Huntsville Town Council, the Huntsville Board of Adjustments and is currently President of the Huntsville water company. He holds a Master's degree and is a teacher at North Ogden Junior High. Prior to that, he taught at our own Snowcrest.
A couple of points:
- Lewis states he would have voted against the Powder Mountain Incorporation
- Lewis will request a 20% pay cut for Commissioners if elected
- “My candidacy is about representation for everyone,” Lewis so eloquently states.
Not to let our humble readers down, we will include some of the latest press regarding the Weber County Commission Campaign.
The Commissioners are disconnected from their Ogden Valley constituents, and it is time we let them know it is time for some Valley representation.
Join us in supporting Lewis at the polls.
Update 10/21/08 @ 11 PM In the reddest state in the land, we know there are many who simply check the GOP box. Yours truly instead votes for the person, not the party. If you are having problems voting for someone from the dark side, we have even more interesting reading that may satiate your hunger for honesty, openness and integrity in government.
First, we have heard from a VERY reliable source that the County commission challenger is in fact a registered Republican.
Secondly, we have included an enlightening pamphlet written by Steve Olsen, candidate for Utah Senate District 20 entitled Why Most Utahn's Are Democrats, But Just Don't Know It Yet.
