Pre-convention Candidate Overview: A Glimpse of How Weber County's 2014 Election Candidate Pool is Shaping Up

Added bonus: A tantalizing chance to change the Ogden School Board balance of power within the span of one single year

Here's the intriguing lede from this morning's story, a joint collaboration of journeyman S-E reporters Bryon Saxton, Tim Gurrister and Cathy McKitrick, who report, among other things, that we'll have a brand-new Weber County Attorney by January, 2015:
Weber County's lone elected Democrat -- County Attorney Dee Smith -- has chosen not to seek re-election. But Deputy County Attorney Chris Allred, a Republican who has worked in the County Attorney's office for 17 years, filed earlier this week and attracted a last-minute GOP challenger -- South Ogden resident Rick Westmoreland -- who filed shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday.

Additionally, the Standard provides this tantalizing morning news tidbit, indicating that those Ogdenites who are unhappy (and who isn't) with the malperformance of our current Ogden School Board,  now have a chance to change the balance of power on that "bumbling" public administrative body, all within the span of one single year:
