  • BEAT THE CLOCK: Glazer waited to pull papers to run in the SD-07 Special Election on January 22nd. He submitted his paperwork and qualified on January 23rd, which was the deadline.
  • LEGISLATION: Coauthor of SR 39 (2015) which found that "Presidential candidates including Donald Trump have unfairly demonized and falsely blamed undocumented immigrant families for a range of problems and challenges facing the United States" and "calls upon the State of California to divest from" and "private businesses and individuals throughout California to end all business ties with" Donald Trump and his companies.
  • OUCH: On October 25, 2003, while driving with his family in Orinda, Glazer was shot in the neck by a teenager named Eli Polk with a high-powered pellet gun. "The .17-caliber projectile just missed his carotid artery and lodged next to his spine. The perpetrator was caught but never charged with a crime because pellet guns were classified as toys in the criminal code."
