Phoenix Politicians Set to Drive Out Uber/Lyft from AirportPhoenix Politicians Set to Drive Out Uber/Lyft from Airport<div class="ExternalClass40547CD3868B497B99B1446377CCE581"><p>​In what can only be described as a Waterloo moment for Phoenix politicians, Phoenix is about to be known as an anti-business city.​</p><p>Phoenix politicians are set to pass a massive tax increase on ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft. These companies have sent a letter saying that if Phoenix imposes this tax increase, they will leave the airport. This would make Phoenix the first airport in the nation to literally drive out ridesharing companies.<br> <br>“Phoenix politicians are set to pass massive tax increases on our public. From water rate increases to garbage rate increases, and now this hefty tax on the ridesharing companies. It's no wonder that these companies no longer want to do business in the city of Phoenix.  Make no mistake about it, this will be on the backs of the politicians who vote for this tax increase. They will be directly responsible for driving out these business owners Making it difficult for middle-class America to get to the airport," said Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio.<br><br></p><p><a href="/district6site/Documents/12_13_UberLettertoCOP.pdf"><strong>CLICK HERE</strong></a><strong> and see below for the letter Uber sent to the City of Phoenix yesterday threatening to pull out of Sky Harbor. </strong></p><p><img src="/district6site/MediaAssets/12_13_UberLettertoCOP_Page_1.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:600px;height:776px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/district6site/MediaAssets/12_13_UberLettertoCOP_Page_2.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:600px;height:776px;" /><br><br></p></div>12/14/2019 6:00:00 PMStephanie Bracken 602-495-5405
