We believed then and now: There are no limits to growth and human progress when men and women are free to follow their dreams. - Ronald Reagan

Ld23 House Candidate Jennifer Petersen Was Honored at a gathering at the home of Dr.Sue Sisley in Scottsdale this evening.

Glendale Mayoral Candidate Walt Opaska Assaulted last night before Glendale Tea Party Event.  At 6:30 p.m. last night, I attended a Glendale Tea Party debate at the Denny’s on Thunderbird and 51st Ave.  While walking outside to my car, someone attending the debate told me that there was a truck with about a dozen of my campaign signs in the back.  I suspected that this person was removing my signs from roadside locations and so I took pictures of the person, his license plate and the signs in the back of his truck in order to provide documentation to law enforcement.  At that point, the man confronted me, threatened to hit me, did land a punch to my back and  held me against a car by the collar and by my jacket.

I was not seriously injured and I assisted the Glendale Police with their report on scene.  Charges are being pressed.  Emotions run high during elections. However, stealing property is never acceptable. Threats and violence are not acceptable.

Those of you who know me know that I don't go looking for a fight, but that I also stand up for what I believe in. I have worked really hard in this campaign. The signs that I have purchased are not my own, but are the result of that hard work and donations of many of you. Thank you for your support. I will continue to push ahead because I believe that Glendale is a great place to live and raise my daughter. We deserve to have a government that delivers quality services without high taxes and taxpayer funded black holes.  -  Walt Opaska
