A new way to make your voice heard


People always want to know if their elected officials are using tax money wisely. They want to know how they vote on the issues. That stuff is nice.

But we just want to figure out who is hotter.

Every week, we'll present you with a new two-week poll. Vote for your favorite, and we'll reveal the winner in two weeks.

Watch your favorites advance to the finals!

And for all of you haters out there, don't be jerks.

You can't hold a candle to...

...Ogden Councilwoman Amy Wicks.

Our 20th Elected Hottie won a major battle of north vs. south over the past two weeks. An aggressive campaign to elect St. George Councilwoman Suzanne Allen got under way shortly after our poll was launched. But Amy had her share of local support, too.

So, what makes Amy so hot? Here we go:
According to her bio, she's been elected twice to the Ogden City Council and is the council's chairwoman. She works for the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome and was interviewed last week by STLtoday. When she's not debating the future of Ogden's water system, she loves (deep breath) snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, climbing and whitewater kayaking.

Amy Wicks
A chairwoman in the hot seat!

And you voters really came through for your councilwomen. The poll's 457 votes is an all-time record for Elected Hotties. Amy and Suzanne also broke records for votes cast for a winner and runner-up. Thanks for showing your support to these women.

Update! Suzanne, an awesome sport, left us a note here and added a plug for St. George Councilman Jon Pike.

UPDATE 2: Amy left us this note in response to our congratulatory e-mail:
I've received several awards through the years, mainly for accomplishments or service to my community- but nothing quite like this. I'm really at a loss for words, which for those who know me...is rare. Thank you for this unique and lighthearted honor.

Having been told countless times that I look almost exactly like my mother (except I'm four inches taller) I guess I should give some credit to her. Thanks mom, for giving me your good genes, as well as making me wear sunscreen and begging me to eat my fruits and vegetables.

On a parting note, I'm going to put a plug in here to vote for Paul Cutler of Centerville in the next poll. We are both are Viewmont High School alums from the late 1980's/early 1990's.

Poll results:
Amy Wicks: 41 percent (191 votes)
Suzanne Allen: 36 percent (165 votes)
Marci Satterthwaite: 12 percent (55 votes)
Anna Stanton: 9 percent (43 votes)
Charelle Bowman: .6 percent (3 votes)
