She said it took a long time to decide whether to run.Many right here in Ogden Valley have been encouraging Amy to run and we at the Forum feel she is the right choice for not only Ogden Valley residents, but the entire county.
"I had people trying to talk me into running for a while," she said. "I lost a lot of sleep over it and finally decided to file."
She believes people asked her to run because of the fiscal responsibility and transparency in decision-making she would like to add to the commission.
Bischoff has done a good job, she said, but has served for quite a while, so she thinks a change would do the commission some good.That is precisely what we need, Amy. Thanks for stepping up to the challenge!
Although Wicks has filed as a Democrat, she said she is not used to partisan politics.
"Most of the time, I've voted for the issue or the person, not the party, so this is a whole new ballgame for me," she said. "Hopefully it can bring some common sense and transparency to the commission."
