Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell, who had been quiet thus far about his plans this election cycle, won’t run for a fourth term as leader of the city.
“It wasn’t tough,” he told the Standard-Examiner on Friday in announcing the decision. “It’s time for me to do new things.”
The announcement comes as the 2023 mayoral campaign is already unfolding. Four hopefuls have so far stepped forward to run for the top spot in Ogden, including Taylor Knuth, Angel Castillo and Chris Barragan. Ben Nadolski, a member of the Ogden City Council, has said he plans to run and is scheduled to formally kick of his campaign at an event Friday evening.
