Dispensary Is Biggest Contributor to Glendale’s City Council Races

AZ Organix Glendale

The owners of Arizona Organix have been determined to be the largest contributors to Glendale’s City Council candidates. It’s said that the three co-owners have contributed $38,100 among three candidates. The contributions have been made to candidates that could have an impact Glendale dispensaries‘ regulations.

Mark Myer, Ryan Wells and/or William Myer contributed to the campaigns of Jamie Aldama, Ray Strahl and Emmanuel Allen, according to AZ Central.  Allen’s campaign received $19,500, the largest individual campaign contribution allowed. Aldama’s campaign received $12,700, in which the Myers each contributed the maximum. A contribution of $6,350 was also made to Ray Strahl’s campaign.

The contributions from Arizona Organix’s owners alone made up 80% of the contributions Allen’s campaign has received.

The owners’ attorney Tom Galvin stated: “We appreciate the dedicated public servants from both sides of the aisle, who have worked together to make Glendale a great city to do business and raise a family.”

With new zoning regulations in place in Glendale, the dispensary may soon expand to better accommodate its growing patient base.
