The Lowdown in O-Town

We're joined by our Fall 2019 intern, Sharon Valverde Vargas, who has been covering the Ogden City Council beat for us. We talk about the past few months on the council, and get Sharon's impressions as a somewhat recent transplant to the area.

Also special thanks to our sponsor, Ashley Wolthius and the Elements of Real Estate! https://www.theelementsofrealestate.com

Sharon Valverde Vargas, JCP Fall 2019 Intern

Earlier in the Fall, we thought we'd begin to dip our toe in to reporting on the local city council meetings and try to provide the JCPeeps with a rundown. We decided the best way to start would be to find a motivated Weber State Wildcat to cover the Ogden City Council and see how it went.

Enter Sharon Valverde Vargas. Sharon is a recent transplant to Ogden and Weber State. Her family came to Utah through the military and she decided that Weber State was right for her.

Check out her story and experience covering the Ogden City Council over the past few weeks.
