Water Distributed to Neighborhood in Glendale




This morning in conjunction with members of Glendale Police Department Explorer Post #2469, several officers with the Glendale Police Department Patrol Division, and through the generosity of Food City and Los Altos Ranch Markets, we delivered over 50 cases of water to residents in the Sonorita area of Glendale.

This effort was designed to show a more human side of the members of our Police Department,and was well received by the area residents.

Thank you Glendale Police Explorers Post #2469, Glendale Police Officers and Supervisors, Food City, and Los Altos Ranch Market for making today a great day in Glendale!


K-9 Protective Vests Become Reality

(7/8/15) Yesterday afternoon at 5pm, I was proud to be in attendance as Cherlynn Berry and Sheri Audette of 2 Share Foundation and 2 Share Gifts presented a check for $15,000 to the Glendale Police Department enabling the purchase of 6 top of the line K-9 protective vests.

I am proud to say the citizens of the Ocotillo District contributed $2500 to help reach the $15,000 goal.

I am especially grateful that 2 Share Foundation and 2 Share Gifts call Catlin Court in the Ocotillo District, Home.

Thank you for your efforts Cherlynn and Sheri. Job well done

Is light rail a possibility in West Valley cities?

High-capacity transit like light rail has been an overwhelming success in terms of ridership, community and economic development and social connectivity for the cities of Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa in its first seven years despite the initial criticism aimed at the project. Several extensions are now being constructed in these communities in response to this success with planning for additional routes underway.

An extension of light rail to Glendale could provide much needed economic development and make the city more accessible and competitive in the region. However, it is best practice to allow citizens the opportunity to provide input for the final route through Glendale. Several routes and modes are in the process of being considered by Valley Metro. I'm certain the recommendations at some point will come to council for consideration on this extremely important community issue.

     Congressman Gallego, whose district covers a significant portion of the Ocotillo District, will be a great partner in Washington, D.C. 
     It was great to see so many leaders, in particular those from the West Valley, who were in attendance.
     Congratulations Congressman Gallego! I look forward to a long working relationship with you.

Preserve our Neighborhoods & Protect our Future

The city of Glendale has been in the news the past few years for mostly negative reasons due to poor fiscal decisions, and lack of accountability inside City Hall.  I will work tirelessly on behalf of Ocotillo District resident, and Glendale as whole, to change that perception.  Glendale is a great place to live and work.  I know we can return to being a leader in the West Valley. 

Public Safety, clean and dependable water delivery, garbage collection on a regular basis, safe and well maintained roadways and right-of-ways, are things residents tell me are most important to them.  In other words, basic services with nice parks and libraries that are open and accessible.

Residents and business owners want a councilperson who returns phone calls and emails, visits their neighborhoods, homes and businesses, and participates in community events.  They want a councilperson who listens, and hears, their concerns, issues, and ideas.  I want to be that Councilperson from the Ocotillo District. 

My name is Jamie Aldama, and I am running for Glendale City Council in the Ocotillo District.  Thank you for your support and please vote for Jamie Aldama on November 4, 2014!

"My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there." Charles F. Kettering
