I feel bad that anyone has to endure domestic violence. It is a sad situation for both of them and they need our prayers. However, it seems as if Mr. Swartz and Mrs. Swartz needs to resign his campaign for judge and her position on council. They need to focus on their relationship and not expose the community to their personal problems.

Hello everyone, i understand that this happened last year. It just bothers me very much that people make assumptions about something that you know nothing about. I am their daughter and i would like to let you know that they are wonderful parents and i wouldn't ask for any other parents. My Dad was a wonderful police officer and my Mom is a wonderful council man. Things happen... but none of you know what really happened so just keep your comments to yourself.

Dear Allison, this thread has been dead for a year and a half - YOU, my dear, brought it back to life.

Perhaps YOU should keep YOUR comments to yourself and then, perhaps, the community will forget how shamefully your parents conducted themselves.

Just sayin'.

Both need to resign. Criminals should not be in public office. Time to take out the trash.
