Andrew Janz’s Visalia campaign office burglarized

Local News

Someone smashed the windows of congressional candidate Andrew Janz’s Visalia office on Monday and stole a phone, and the candidate is asking for donations to fix them.

The property owners made the call when they discovered multiple windows on the north side of the building had been vandalized, Janz’s office said.

The suspect(s) took the office phone and it is still unclear if they took anything else, Janz’s office said.

“The Visalia Police Department has responded to the break in of our office and are currently investigating. I appreciate their quick and professional response. While the threats of violence on our property and to ourselves continue on this campaign, I encourage my supporters and every Central Valley resident to stay focused on the important issues that bring our community together,” Janz said in a statement Monday.

“I have faced down threats from gang members in open court, my family and I have been under police protection during trials, it will take more than a few broken windows to stop the amazing grassroots support of this campaign.” Janz added.
