Richard Shaw’s letter about Globe police officer A.J. Castaneda in the May 29 Copper Country News was spot-on. A.J.’s dad was a great cop, and he passed that on to A.J.
I grew up with A.J., and in addition to being a great cop, he is a great leader and a great father. A.J. possesses many special qualities. The citizens of Globe and Miami are blessed and fortunate to such dedicated and professional police officers. God bless them. I also want to say a few words about A.J.’s mother, Miami mayor Rosemary Castaneda. She has a done a lot of good for the Town of Miami. When she first took over as mayor, businesses were dying, but now the downtown is coming alive. All the work at Bullion Plaza and the neighborhood cleanups have really improved Miami.
