Vision & Mission

For Mike Zale, Ogden is home – it’s where he started his family, and chose to open his small business. He knows what it takes to keep Ogden and Monroe County a great place to call home. Creating new jobs, growing our local economy, and keeping families in Monroe County are among his top priorities. Mike recognizes that these things can only be accomplished by continuing to keep the local property tax rate flat. A flat property tax rate gives new businesses confidence to enter the community, allows existing businesses to grow and most importantly, allows families to stay in their neighborhoods and homes for years to come.
