Given the tragic events in Dallas and the current racial climate in our country, Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio issued the following statement:</p><p>"Under President Obama's leadership, racial tensions in this country have reached some of their worst levels. We need to address the public's concerns. This must happen. But the way President Obama talks about this issue is wrong. Our police officers make thousands of appropriate stops everyday and save countless lives but President Obama chooses to use words that incite hate and violence. President Obama knows that his words matter. He knows what he is doing and he needs to stop. He needs to just stop."</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Councilman DiCiccio had been working with city staff, police and community leaders to postpone last night's event. The councilman is available for follow up comments or interview if requested.​</p></div>7/9/2016 7:00:00 AMDavid Urbinato602.534.1209
