“For the past year, I have heard from constituents in the greater Ogden area that Ogden City is hard to do business with. This is especially true with airport operations and how the city interacts with and impacts stakeholders. As a State legislator, I have spent the past year attempting to work with the Ogden City administration, that has lacked a true leader as Mayor. I have had many frustrations the past few months with a seeming unwillingness to work together to improve conditions at the airport.

It’s time to have a true partner in Ogden City so we can work together to solve problems, rather than fighting with one another. Ben Nadolski has a proven track record with my colleagues on the hill for being collaborative, responsive and a problem solver. He has engaged with airport stakeholders to hear their side of the story, and has committed to solving the issues that are keeping businesses from thriving at the airport. Ben is the partner we need at the city, and the proven leader that can solve hard problems collaboratively. His years of experience working in legislative affairs, and his reputation for professionalism, is proof that he has what it takes to lead Ogden City through these challenges. For these reasons and so many more, it is my pleasure to endorse Ben Nadolski for Mayor of Ogden City.”

@ben4ogden Grateful for the support of my former teammate, John Fassel, who is as big a Wildcat fan as me. This man has had a tremendous impact on my life, and the life of my family.

It is a privilege to endorse Ben Nadolski as candidate for Ogden Mayor. I personally have a deep love for Ogden and the people of Ogden. Ben personifies about everything that is Ogden. He is passionate about the outdoors and access to those resources. He is knowledgeable and experienced in the inner working of the city. He invested and dedicated to the growth and commerce of the community. But what I love and respect most is Ben’s complete commitment to the youth and future generations of Ogden City. He is a great candidate and an even better man!

I recruited Ben to play for Weber State. Ben is one of the BEST.  He was a leader on our team and has become an outstanding leader in our Ogden community, and he works hard every day to contribute in a positive way.  I am honored to endorse Ben for Mayor of Ogden City. And just like he played hard for us on the football field, he will work hard and effectively for ALL of us in our Ogden community.

Ben Nadolski is a leader. He has shown that during his 7 years as a City Council Member for Ogden City.  He has shown that as an active Community Member, as his kids soccer and softball coach, as a supportive husband to Jaynee, as a member of the Wilcat Football Team and as a WSU supporter.  He will listen to his constituents and come up with the best solutions for everyone.  We can’t wait to see him lead as Mayor!

We have known Ben and Jaynee for years and have had the opportunity to work alongside them coaching youth or while involved in the GOAL Foundation. He is passionate about Ogden and all of its residents and has a proven track record of collaborating for success. We can’t wait to see how his leadership will guide our city into the future.

I spent 36 years as a police officer with the Ogden Police Department, the last 4 as Chief of Police. During my tenure as Chief, and previously as an Assistant Chief, I worked closely with City Administration and the City Council. I found the City functioned best when these two entities, designed to offer checks and balances to power, fulfilled their respective roles while looking to the best interests of the City and its diverse constituents.

During my time as Chief, Ben Nadolski sat as a member of the City Council, and as Chair and Vice Chair. His love for the City and its constituents, his logical and reasoned approach to decision making, and his ability to manage conflict were on constant display. His abilities to persuade and influence enabled him to bring consensus to the Council team and avoid or suppress confrontation. He regularly demonstrated, in my opinion, the qualities of a leader.

The City has two solid candidates for the office of Mayor. The citizens of Ogden must choose the one who best meets their vision of CEO of the City. Ben’s leadership experience with the State of Utah, his City management experience as a member of the Ogden City Council, his multi-level connections with formal and informal City leaders, and his love for Ogden, his home, make him the best choice in my opinion.

I endorse Ben Nadolski for Mayor of Ogden City.

The one thing I learned during my tenure on the Ogden City Council was that being an effective community leader required first and foremost experience in the ways of government and governing.  Ben Nedolski has that experience.  He has served several terms as a city council person, including serving as Council Chair.  This has provided him with the tools necessary to hit the ground running as the Mayor of Ogden.  My husband and I will both be marking our ballots for Ben!

I support Ben for Mayor because of his ability to get things done and have been impressed with Ben’s work in the city, including his work on the Ogden River and as a Council member.  Ben is a man of integrity and has demonstrated a strong ability to build and maintain partnerships, and collaborate with people and organizations to get things done that benefit Ogden.  I believe Ben will be able to lead Ogden through current and future challenges, including responsible economic development, updating aging infrastructure, increasing access to affordable home ownership and a commitment to public safety to keep officers in Ogden.  Ben is committed to leading a city that works for its citizens, not against them, and has the experience and leadership skills to make that happen.

I am pleased to offer my endorsement to Ben Nadolski for the position of Ogden City Mayor. In my
experiences with Ben I have seen his collaborative approach and his history of partnering with Weber County.

As a member of the local Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) I have been impressed with his support of our local law enforcement community. Ben has a healthy track record of supporting law enforcement, which I believe to be of utmost importance in a Mayor. Ben has had an exceptional record of service with Ogden City as a member of their City Council and has been committed to addressing the needs of law enforcement and has been proactive in caring for those who serve.

I believe Ben is the most qualified person to take on the role of Ogden City Mayor and will represent his constituents well. I believe Ben will also continue to be a great support to law enforcement agencies in Weber County and build successful partnerships moving forward.

I highly recommend Ben Nadolski for the position of Ogden City Mayor.

I endorse Ben because he’s a Mayor FOR THE PEOPLE.  He cares about the People of Ogden.  He has always made me feel heard, lending a listening ear. He cares passionately for our youth and thrives to make decisions that are best for the community.  He doesn’t make rash decisions without having all the information and is exactly what Ogden needs to bring the people together.  I truly believe he cares for each and every one of Ogden’s citizens exuding mutual respect with those who may hold different views than he does.  I endorse Ben because he is a peacemaker and recognizes that everyone may not agree with all of the decisions he makes, but will make those with a clear conscience based on what he feels is best for the people of Ogden.   Ogden needs a peacemaker, Ogden needs someone with a vision, Ogden needs transparency and Ogden needs trust.  Ogden needs Ben!

I want to express my wholehearted support for Ben Nadolski who is running for the position of Mayor in our beloved Ogden.
Ben is not just a candidate but an exceptional individual who embodies the qualities and values that our community desperately needs in a leader.
As a coach, Ben demonstrated an unwavering commitment to our youth. I have witnessed firsthand the positive impact he has had on countless young lives, both on and off the field. His dedication to mentoring and guiding our children towards becoming responsible, compassionate, and successful individuals is truly commendable.
Furthermore, as a father and husband, Ben understands the importance of family values and community cohesion. He has always prioritized the well-being of his own family, and I have no doubt that he will do the same for our entire community. His strong family values will undoubtedly be reflected in his leadership as Mayor, ensuring that Ogden remains a place where families can thrive and flourish.
Additionally, Ben has been an active and engaged member of our community for many years. His commitment to service is evident in his involvement in various community initiatives and organizations. Whether it’s volunteering for local events, supporting local businesses, or advocating for the needs of our community, Ben has consistently shown his dedication to making Ogden a better place for everyone.
Ben is the perfect candidate for the role of Mayor in Ogden. His experience as a coach, his role as a loving father and husband, and his commitment to community service make him a well-rounded and caring individual who will undoubtedly lead our city towards a brighter and more prosperous future.
I wholeheartedly endorse Ben Nadolski for Mayor and encourage all members of our community to support his candidacy. I have no doubt that he will bring the same passion, dedication, and leadership to the role of Mayor as he has in all his other endeavors.

I have know Ben Nadolski for six years now. It all started when his wife Jaynee began coaching my daughter when she was in third grade. At the time, I had no idea how involved in the community both him and his wife were. Since then we have become great friends. We have spent countless week nights and weekends watching our kids thrive in sports. Ben gave my children the opportunity to compete in their favorite sports at a higher level when he introduced “Untamed” to our community. Without this program there is no way I could afford to have my children participate in competitive sports with coaches that genuinely care and volunteer their time to our youth. I have personally seen how much Ben cares about our community by showing up to events in support even though many times his own daughters weren’t participating. He has talked to us countless times about how important our youth is before he made the decision to run for Mayor. His decision to run for Mayor came from the heart to make positive changes in Ogden. Ben cares about everyone and anyone despite who they are. He has more than shown us as a community that he IS here to make changes which is why I fully support Ben as Mayor. He is what Ogden needs with a solid plan on fixing issues and preserving our great city. Not only does Ben care about our city he cares greatly about the people of Ogden. I am honored to have developed a friendship with both him and his wife because it has given me the opportunity to get to know them personally. I have nothing but appreciation and admiration for the Nadolski family. He has our full support!!! Ben for Mayor.

I have worked in Ogden City for the majority of my career and worked closely with Ogden City and Weber County elected officials. I have seen first-hand the difference the representatives can make in our community. I have worked alongside Ben professionally and personally. I have seen his work ethic and passion for positive change in our city. I have watched Ben and Jaynee commit countless hours volunteering as coaches and coordinators in Ogden City Youth recreation and the difference in the caliber of the program Ben has been able to advocate and execute.

I believe Ben is by far the best candidate for Ogden City Mayor. He is conservative, passionate, knowledgeable, experienced and committed to what our city needs.
