Councilmember Carlos Garcia Reflects on Chief Jeri Williams' Retirement Council District 85/3/2022 5:15:00 PM Carlos Garcia Reflects on Chief Jeri Williams' Retirement <div class="ExternalClass7BCF5043CD1F4A0C8802C488FDEB9FAC"><html> <p>"Today’s announcement by Chief Jeri Williams marks a shift for our city. I want to acknowledge that Chief Williams and her family are major pillars in our community. She has led a life of public service and represented South Phoenix with dignity during her tenure.</p> <p>It is no secret that the Phoenix Police Department has much work to do. While being very well-resourced, the department is still facing major challenges, including a Department of Justice investigation, and police union leadership that continues to not listen to the needs of the community and their own members.</p> <p>City leadership is at a critical juncture to make the changes necessary to shift us in the right direction where we can redefine and create better public safety for all. I look forward to working alongside the community to make this possible."<br></p> </html></div>
Vice Mayor Pastor and Councilmember Garcia Call on Mayor to Hold Meeting on MCAO Wrongdoings Council District 84/4/2022 7:00:00 PM Mayor Pastor and Councilmember Garcia Call on Mayor to Hold Meeting on MCAO Wrongdoings<div class="ExternalClassBE5DF466F1E2408AA443E8402DE7BBFF"><html> <p>​Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel resigned amid numerous scandals, but it should not stop Phoenix City Council from looking at our own role in wrongdoings in coordination with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.<br></p> <p>We cannot sweep this under the rug and Adel’s resignation should point to the severity of the situation. The Phoenix City Council has a responsibility to hold a discussion on what happened with the cases of protestors who were wrongfully charged and to discuss the high-ranking city officials and representatives that have been implicated as well as what we must do next to ensure it does not happen again.<br></p> <p>Since the Public Safety and Justice Subcommittee has not held a forum for this discussion, we are calling on Mayor Kate Gallego to hold a policy meeting on this matter. We are looking to her leadership to address this by holding people accountable. ​<br></p> </html></div>
