By making Phoenix the largest city in the nation to take this step, our City Council has the opportunity to declare that our city and our tribal nations are inextricably linked, both as we remember the past and plan for the future. I want to thank the community members who brought this initiative to our City Council's attention, and I look forward to supporting this step forward at the full City Council."<br><br>Vice Mayor Gallego is Chair of the Sustainability, Housing, Efficiency, and Neighborhoods Subcommittee.<br></td></tr></tbody></table><br></div>9/20/2016 7:00:00 PMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
