Glendale voters with mail-in early ballots may want to hang onto them for a while. The race for the city’s next mayor is becoming a paper and electronic battlefield. It is not a horse race anymore; it is now about one candidate’s voting record in the Arizona Legislature, and another candidate’s support of a tax increase.
It has become apparent the race is also about a Republican (Weiers) and a Democrat (Cruz), and the differences in ideologies. Cruz has accused Weiers of voting against a domestic violence bill, Senate Bill 1088, which his supporters said could prevent deadly domestic violence confrontations. Weiers accused Cruz of embracing “the largest proposed tax hike in Glendale history.”
That’s what liberals do,” Weiers wrote in his press release.
