Margaret Liston-Councilwoman

I grew up in Beaver and attended school in Ogden for most of elementary and high school education. In 1999, I purchased my home in Ogden feeling I came home to where I need to be. I felt welcomed and supported by the community.  I am a registered nurse working in the peri operative arena for 31 years. My husband Gerald Duff  and I have six adult children and 10 grandchildren. This is my fourth term on the city council. Each year expands my knowledge of our city government. I enjoy serving our community.



Dave Ohlson-Councilman

I have been an Ogden resident for sixty-two years. During part of that time, thirty-one years, I worked for the local Chevrolet dealer. When that dealer closed, I found employment in Ames at Wilson Toyota, where I have worked for sixteen years. My wife Donna and I raised three children here as well. I enjoy giving back to the community that has given me so much so we enjoy serving on several local boards and committees.


Lori Anderson-Councilwoman

I grew up in the small farming community of Dows, Iowa.  After graduating from high school, I received a Medical Secretarial degree from the American Institute of Business in Des Moines.  For the last 41 years, I have been employed with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Ames, where I currently hold the position of Chief of Staff for the National Veterinary Services Laboratories.  Even though I did not grow up in Ogden, I immediately felt like this was my home when my husband, Mike, and I made Ogden our family home 37 years ago.  We were lucky to have the opportunity to raise three great children in this community.  This is my fifth term on the City Council and I still enjoy finding ways to help Ogden grow and thrive.


Sean Thompson-Councilman

I have been on the Council since 2004. I graduated from Iowa State University in 1993 with a degree in Physical Education K-12. I started with East Greene Schools in 1993 and consolidated with Jefferson in 2013. Currently I am a Physical Education teacher at Greene County Schools. I am also the owner and Operator of Pleasure Time Pools in Ogden. Maintaining residential pools crystal clear since 2004.  My wife Heidi and my sons Trey and Jade and myself call Ogden home. I feel Ogden is a strong, friendly and dedicated community. As a Council member, I will make financially strong decisions to grow our community and seek ways to attract more families to make Ogden their home.
