Wegener: public deserves representative government

Local architect Tony Wegener says we the people deserve local government which is more representative. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Wegener said the Logan City government needs to be more inclusive, less divisive and less intrusive. Wegener is one of four candidates running for two open seats on the municipal council. He says the city needs more citizen input because people support what they help create. “And that’s not rocket science,” Wegener explained. “In our business, whether you’re designing a building, or whether you’re planning a city or whether you’re trying to remodel a street you need to get input from all the stake holders. “You need to work with them closely. And if you do you actually get people who feel like it’s part their idea and they’re willing to take ownership.” He says the council and mayor try but they are not doing a good job and he feels he could help them do this better. Wegener says he feels strongly that Mayor Randy Watts should be replaced because his priorities are wrong and poorly thought through, such as the park strip restoration project and a proposed landlord licensing program.
