OGDEN — As we approach the home stretch of the 2022 election cycle, various candidates for public office are hitting the pavement, putting up billboards, and ramping up social media messages to vie for support.

Webber County voters will have the opportunity to interact with 15 candidates at a forum in Ogden on Saturday. From 4 p.m. he is scheduled until 6 p.m. and will be held at 726 25th St. and hosted by Sean Bishop and Taylor Knuth, who are active in Ogden’s civic affairs.

“This is for voters to have a chance to meet the candidates,” said Gina Timmerman of the Utah Campaign Co-op, the Ogden-based group that organized the event.

Those who indicated they were planning to attend on Saturday include independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin, who is challenging Republican incumbent Mike Lee, and Republican incumbent Blake Moore and Democratic challenger Rick Jones.

One of the high-profile elections in Weber County is the battle between Democrat Rosemary Lesser (incumbent) and Republican challenger Jill Koford for the District 10 seat in the Utah House of Representatives. Lesser, the only Democrat from outside Salt Lake County, said both Democrats and Republicans had a lot of interest in the election. Lesser and Kofford told organizers they plan to attend on Saturday.

District 10 covers South Ogden and parts of South Ogden, North Riverdale, and North Washington Terrace.

Two newcomers will compete in the Utah House election for District 8: Republican Jason Kyle and Democrat Monica Hall. Republican Rep. Steve Waldrip chose not to seek reelection to the seat covering Ogden’s East Bench and other parts of the city, as well as parts of North Ogden and the Ogden Valley. Both Kyle and Hall are scheduled to attend on Saturday.

Others attending the Ogden event are Republican Senator Ann Milner, who is seeking re-election to the 5th District seat, and Republican Utah Representative Calvin Musselman, 9th District. Milner faces a challenge from Democrat Michael Blodgett, while Musselman faces a challenge from Democrat Neil Hansen and libertarian Jacob Johnson.

Two candidates for Seat B on the Weber County Commission, Republicans Sharon Boros and Liberals Brian Lowry, and Democratic nominee for Seat A County Commission, John Thompson, will be present. Her incumbent, Gage Froerer, is a Republican who wants the A post.

Ogden School Board member Amber Allred is seeking re-election to the District 4 post, and challenger Jeremy Shinoda will also attend, according to organizers. Stacey Bernal, who will challenge Douglas Barker for a position on the District 2 Ogden Board of Education, will also attend.

Saturday’s Forum is the first public campaign event in Weber County to attract a significant number of would-be volunteers. But more events are planned leading up to Election Day, November 8th.
