Dear Ogden City Employees and Residents,
After a long journey to arrive at this moment together, it’s an honor and privilege to address you as your friend, neighbor, community partner and now, as your Mayor. I am acutely aware of the challenges, responsibilities and expectations that come with this position, as well as the pressures that come with this moment and opportunity for our city. While leading our staff, listening in our community and setting policy priorities, my commitment is to make you, and all of our people, my number one priority.
As we step into this new era, I am honored to present to you my Blueprint for a Stronger Ogden - Our First 100 Days Together. While this Blueprint is not all encompassing, it is a launching point that will provide a cornerstone of expectations for my tenure and the success of Ogden City. It includes a review of the steps I have taken to prepare for this office, the vision I have for our future together, and how we’ll create opportunities for you and your families to achieve your greatest potential. The Blueprint outlines community values that facilitate and support success, and the policy priorities we’ll focus on to achieve our vision together. Finally, it highlights the areas where I’ll invest my time and energy in my early tenure, how those efforts will set a foundation for our future, and how you can support our efforts to achieve our greatest individual and collective potential.
My priorities in these crucial first 100 days include building a trustworthy, collaborative and transparent leadership team within the City, affirming and reinforcing a collaborative culture with our people and partners, and engaging with the community authentically, broadly and transparently. My leadership and vision for Ogden’s future must be aligned across all departments and to ensure collaborative execution for years to come. I am committed to swift and early wins that earn the support and trust of our people, and which set a clear direction for our future, and contribute to making Ogden a world-class American city for all of our staff and residents.
I am filled with gratitude and excitement for this honor and opportunity, and for the potential that lies within all of us, both individually and collectively. I hope you’ll take time to not just read the blueprint, but to internalize its tenets and consider how you will fit into our culture, values, and goals. I look forward to working with you to help Ogden step into its greatness.
Mayor Benjamin K. Nadolski
