I wonder if the citizens of North Ogden realize what is really going on. We have two candidates running for mayor. There was no primary election for this race because there are only two running. The pitiful few who turned out to vote in the primary chose four candidates for the city council--two will be elected in November. The campaign for the city council hasn't really heated up yet. I hope it does.
Meanwhile, the campaign for mayor has become a battle of signs. The owner of one of the large markets in North Ogden gave permission to Wade Bigler's supporters to put up campaign signs near the market. Supporters for Brent Taylor announced to the market manager that they would no longer shop there unless Bigler's signs were taken down. So now we have one of the candidates pulling out all the stops to get elected.
Don't be fooled by Taylor's campaign rhetoric. He's a politician who wants to go to the top, and North Ogden is one of his stepping stones. He recently was a army officer serving in Pakistan. Even while he was there, he tried to manilpulate the city council with emails to the council and the Standard-Examiner. Don't let this man be elected.
