We were excited moving into North Ogden, knowing it to be a great place to live. We are happy to have Wade Bigler representing us because:
We moved and realized there was "no" street light, therefore the light paid for by the developer was not installed. The city acknowledged they should have put a light on our corner, but mistakenly installed it down the block. Further checking revealed that the city was also to have put down a "Slurry Seal", (a road coating), but there wasn't anything they could do.
I talked to Councilman Bigler and told him the problem. At first he didn't believe the city would wait 10 years to address a problem like that. I showed him the documentation and receipts. I wasn't at the council meeting when Wade brought it up, but I understand the city agreed to fix the problem.
Wade kept us informed on all progress made. Today, our street has a coat of "Slurry Seal," our neighborhood corner has brightly lighted pole on a potentially dangerous and dark corner. This helps us all in many ways, such as reducing crime and offering safer "trails" for walkers, joggers, and bikers.
The petition drive against the $10 million public works project, brought a new appreciation for the value of a Wade Bigler for enlightening and leading for the good of the community. The current public works project I understand is going well, and we have done some really good things; progress is actually being achieved. This issue did a lot to open my eyes.
The issues we face concerning North Ogden call for a energetic, responsible, and caring person. Being a good listener, Wade instills new faith in the workings of our city government. He hears the citizens concerns, then he follows through.
Do the many negative articles in the Standard-Examiner really warrant front page coverage? I think not.
Many people in North Ogden appreciate Councilman Wade Bigler, and all the "good works" he and all the council of North Ogden do. He will make an excellent mayor for North Ogden city.
