Lewis wants to give back to hometown

Brandon Lewis has one goal as trustee—give back. 

Lewis is running for Ogden Village Board on April 6. 

“I want to give back to the town that I have lived and learned to love my whole life,” he said. 

Lewis currently gives back by serving as a firefighter and EMT for the Ogden Royal Protection District and has been serving the community for 21 years. He was also part and past Master of the Ogden Mason Lodge A.D and A.M. 

In the short term, Lewis hopes to learn more about how the board functions and what the needs are of the village. In the long term he wants to engage his fellow residents and learn what they need and want from the village board. 

Lewis, who is married and has a three year old daughter, is a fourth generation family member to live in Ogden. 

“Being able to give back to the village would be the most rewarding thing (about being a trustee),” Lewis said.
