MIKE OPELKA Having lived in Arden for the past eight years, I am a relative newcomer here and would offer a fresh perspective for this post. I also come from a family that shaped the world of real estate appraisal, creating the form used by virtually every real property appraiser in the country. The term “highest and best use of the land” was drilled into our brains from birth.

Those who know me are likely aware my fiscal position leans toward smaller, more efficient and less intrusive forms of government, preferring to inspire personal responsibility over meddlesome leadership. I would appreciate your vote.
