Statement from Councilman Michael Nowakowski on Pardon of Joe ArpaioStatement from Councilman Michael Nowakowski on Pardon of Joe Arpaio<div class="ExternalClassEACDD3A18D4D4525BF4A0B4C3DD2EE6A"><p>​<span style="background-color:#ffffff;color:#212121;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">“I am disappointed but not surprised by President Trump’s action to pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I am deeply saddened for the voters of Maricopa County who voted Joe Arpaio out of office.</span></p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;">For many years he hurt, mistreated, and divided our community by separating parents from children and racially profiling innocent people. To be granted a pardon by the President is an insult to our community and to our civil rights. I strongly condemn this pardon and urge our community to get out and vote. To avoid future actions, we must unite and vote for people who support our community.</p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;"><br></p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;">As always, I know our community will move forward from this injustice and I ask that we all join in prayer for the healing of our community.”</p></div>8/26/2017 5:10:00 AMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
