Whitney Weddell ~ Whitney Weddell, a teacher of government, economics and the ideals and ethics of government at Lamont High School, was challenged by her own students to run for Supervisor. "My students said, 'Why don't you run?'" she said. "I batted the idea around. After the women's march, I began to take the idea seriously." She decided to run, with economy as the main issue. "We have to be willing to diversify economically," she said. Citing the needs of senior citizens and veterans, "We should have commercial marijuana growing." Such an industry, she said, can be regulated "without becoming a menace to the community"
