Best wishes to DeChant

The Glendale Fire Department wished Chief Chris DeChant goodbye and good luck as he leaves GFD to become the Fire Chief of El Mirage.


Congratulations. We will miss you. — @GlendaleFire


Another vote for incumbent

Greg Eisert of Sun City sent in a letter endorsing incumbent Craig Wismer for the position of Arrowhead Justice of the Peace. Mr. Wismer faces Phillip Woolbright in this month’s election.


I agree with your assessment of Judge Craig Wismer with his professionalism and respect for all stakeholders who are present in his court. Like you, I endorse Judge Wismer as he is the exceptional choice and needs to be re-elected! — Eric Cultum
