Weber County Commission, Seat A: John Thompson
John was quoted in an April 9, 2022 story in the Ogden Standard-Examiner: “The people deserve a choice,” he said. Conservation of water is important to him, he said, noting the low level of Pineview Reservoir. Unfettered development, too, is a concern. “We keep doing that — that doesn’t appear to me to be a good idea,” he said. County commissioners will have a key role in the future of the proposal for expansion of the Weber County jail and Thompson said he backs the plans. He also supports the notion of raising property taxes to fund the upgrades, if necessary.
