Castillo and Caldwell

Ogden mayoral hopefuls Mike Caldwell, left, the incumbent, and Angel Castillo meet in a candidate forum on Friday, Sept. 13, 2019.

OGDEN — Ogden’s two mayoral hopefuls plan to meet in a candidate forum on Friday.

The forum goes from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will be held at Marquardt Park on the city’s East Bench, 3240 Taylor Ave.

Dustin Chapman of Ogden Education, a grassroots education advocacy group, will moderate. Ten questions will be taken from the audience.

Mayor Mike Caldwell seeks his third term office while Angel Castillo, a member of the Ogden Planning Commission, is challenging him. They were the top two vote-getters in the four-way Aug. 13 primary, with Caldwell getting 44.7% of the vote and Castillo getting 28.3%.

The two face off in the Nov. 5 election. Other mayoral and city council posts from other cities across Weber County will also be up for grabs.
