We at the Forum wish Mr. McKay luck in the selection process as it would be nice to have some Ogden Valley representation at some level of the Weber County food chain.
We also wish Mark DeCaria well and feel he has provided County residents with invaluable service, although we certainly wish he would have taken a harsher (and earlier) stance against the Powdervillians from Powder Mountain (aka Powderville).
Perhaps DeCaria's greatest compliment came from his deputy attorney, Bill Daines, during DeCaria's swearing in ceremony.
DeCaria has served as the elected chief law enforcement official for the county since 1993, Deputy Weber County Attorney Bill Daines pointed out to the crowd. He has never had any one run against him for the job, he said, a testament to how well- respected he is.
"He's had no races since 1993," Daines stressed. "That's a record that will not be broken. Ever.
"And he's a Democrat in a heavily Republican state. That is not an accident.
"We are now giving him to you, reluctantly I might add," he said, gesturing to the group of nine of DeCaria's black-robbed colleagues on hand for the event, fellow judges and court commissioners.
