Standard-Examiner: Rotary Invites Public to Meet Candidates

An opportunity to listen to the Ogden City mayoral candidates, whilst gulping down a delicious rubber chicken dinner, with the political elites of Ogden's Rotary Club

For those Ogden City voters who still haven't had a chance to watch our 2011 Ogden City mayoral candidates, Caldwell and Stephenson, strut their stuff, we're delighted to announce yet another Ogden City Mayoral Candidate Event, this time an opportunity to gulp down a delicious rubber chicken dinner with Ogden's Rotary Club, which has scheduled the eleventh consecutive such event for next Wednesday (10/26/11), over at the ritzy Marriott Hotel in Ogden. The Standard has the story, which is mercifully brief, so we'll incorporate the text in full:

OGDEN -- The Rotary Club of Ogden is holding a "Meet the Ogden Mayoral Candidates Luncheon" at noon Wednesday at the Marriott in Ogden.

Cost of the luncheon is $16 per person; RSVP must be made by Monday. Rotary Club RSVPs can be directed to Maresha Bosgieter at 801-510-0596, and Chamber RSVPs can be taken by Kat Shane-Marble at 801-621-8300 or by sending an email to

Candidates Mike Caldwell and Brandon Stephenson will present their vision for Ogden and answer questions. The event is open to all Chamber of Commerce members, business and civic leaders and other service organizations

Yeah. We know that attending this event, (unlike the eleven other similar previous events), will cost you sixteen bucks. But we're sure you'll get your money's worth this go-round, especially since you'll be chowing down and rubbing elbows with Ogden's elite "Chamber of Commerce members, business and civic leaders and other service organizations," right?

We'll leave the lights on in our lower comments section as usual, of course, for any readers who'd like to comment before, during or after this event.

Looks like a tougher gig than it would appear on the surface.  If Wednesday's Rotary Club candidate meet-up is populated by real business leaders, half of them will be more interested in hearing about "limited and frugal government" than grand plans for massive borrowing and spending.  We'll see though, won't we?
