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.
