It is important in this time for the voices of those most disproportionately impacted to be heard. My office will continue to push for accountability, transparency, and community participation.<br><br>In honoring the lives of his and others, it is my hope that as a community we can remai​n peaceful and determined in accomplishing these goals.

Es importante en este momento que se escuchen las voces de los más desproporcionadamente afectados. Mi oficina continuará presionando por la contabilidad, la transparencia y la participación comunitaria.<br><br>Al honrar la vida de él y de otros, espero que, como comunidad, podamos permanecer pacíficos y decididos para lograr estos objetivos. Tengo fe en que Phoenix puede ser líder en el camino.  Sean escuchados y estén seguros."​​<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district5Newsdistrict-5
