Sebastian Benitez is the underdog in the fight to be the next Ogden mayor. I've seen him tackle challenges with gusto, support neighbors involved in disputes and find solutions to complex administrative problems that all growing cities face. I applaud his efforts as he strives to find balance as a business owner, family man and community leader.
Nov. 3 we have the opportunity to vote for a new Ogden mayor. Sebastian Benitez is a clear winner. What he lacks in political experience, he makes up for in determination.
In this election race, I'm cheering for the underdog.
