Statement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio: Insiders Gaming Citizens AgainStatement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio: Insiders Gaming Citizens Again<div class="ExternalClass0F98093A8B8A486191E9A2B0F925DFAD"><p>"The citizen-led initiative to repair our broken roads is facing a major headwind. A lawsuit was filed today to stop the citizen-led initiative that would have taken future light rail monies and put those monies into repairing our roads. But as today's press release announcing a lawsuit against Building a Better Phoenix's initiative made it absolutely clear: the insiders at City Hall will stop at nothing to prevent the citizens of South Phoenix from taking their case against the destructive South Central light rail line to the voters.</p><p>The attorney trying to stop the citizens is also under contract with the city of Phoenix. This is clearly an effort by the politicians and the government insiders to protect their own at the expense of the public. This is beyond despicable and shows how far the insider politicians will go to stop any effort by the citizens to help our city."<br></p><p><br></p></div>1/2/2019 7:00:00 AMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
