Councilman Sal DiCiccio: City Council Vote a Huge Win for PrayerCouncilman Sal DiCiccio: City Council Vote a Huge Win for Prayer<div class="ExternalClassE88BE7D3C4F548A8B3FC1AB77EF2B243"><p>​“Approving Public Prayer at City Council meetings was a big win for Phoenix. It has been a tough fight to keep prayer at our meetings, and I am happy for all of our community.<br><br>The Phoenix City Council reversed the Phoenix Mayor and City Council’s previous decision to ban a 65-year tradition of prayer at our council meetings without notice to the public. Under the new rule, we will have a prayer from a chaplain from the Phoenix Police or Fire departments. <br><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br>We did not let this issue go away because some politicians wanted it to go away. I want to thank Councilmembers Waring, Nowakowski and Gates and our faith community for their pressure on the politicians to reverse this decision.”​​​​</span></p><p></p></div>3/3/2016 1:00:00 AMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
