I have received several mailers and calls from Ray Strahl, who is running for the Glendale City Council in the Barrel District. The negative slant against his opponent Bart Turner is uncalled for.
All of the points made on the mailers are what Turner has already done. He has been on the positive side of all the votes to improve Glendale and has always considered the residents of Glendale and his district in those well-researched and vetted decisions. He has a long history of helping Glendale move forward.
The reason he was endorsed by the Glendale Chamber of Commerce and The Glendale Star is that he is an independent thinker and understands that the city’s elections are non-partisan and that all citizens should be represented.
Diverse thought is not petty politics. The mayor recruiting people to run against the incumbents is petty politics. I hope that voters see through the attempt to stack the council and vote for Bart Turner.
