Remembering Calvin C. Goode 1927 – 2020https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/article/1679Articles and Features12/24/2020 1:00:00 AMRemembering Calvin C. Goode 1927 – 2020<div class="ExternalClass94859CEC9AF5449BB46793E8FDC07FA3"><div class="ExternalClass632EE03C236C4E3B9138F7C982951422"><p style="text-align:center;">​<img src="/citymanagersite/MediaAssets/CalvinGoode_2.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:225px;height:338px;" /></p><p style="text-align:left;"> <strong>Statement from Calvin C. Goode's Family:</strong></p><p style="text-align:left;"> <em>Calvin C. Goode passed at 3:26 p.m. on Dec. 23, 2020, at Banner University Medical Center from a non-COVID-19 related illness. Memorial services are pending. The family requests privacy during this time.</em></p> <br><strong>About Calvin C. Goode:</strong><br> <p>Phoenix City Councilman Calvin Coolidge Goode served a total of twenty-two years (1972 to 1994), as a representative to the Phoenix, Arizona City Council. He was only the second African American elected to the Council. Born in rural Depew, Oklahoma in 1927, Goode's family moved to Arizona when he was ten months old. His family settled in a homestead near Gila Bend, Arizona, where they worked in agricultural fields picking and chopping cotton. Goode graduated from Carver High School in 1945, the only school in Arizona built exclusively for African American students. He then obtained his B.A. and M.A. degrees from Arizona State University. <br> <br>During his tenure, Councilman Goode developed a program to ensure that women-and minority-owned small businesses would receive a proportionate share of city business; advocated successfully for a district form of city government; and helped broker a compromise that led to a Phoenix ordinance that prohibited workplace discrimination against minorities and members of the LGBTQ community. He was instrumental in ensuring that the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday was officially observed in the City of Phoenix, paving the way for the holiday to be observed statewide.<br><br>To commemorate his years of service to the city, a Phoenix municipal building, located at 251 West Washington Street, was named in Goode's honor. The building is inscribed with a fitting tribute to Councilman Goode: “Guided by a deeply held belief in God and in the equality of all people, his lifetime exemplified a powerful commitment to improving the quality of life in Phoenix, especially for young people." Each year, the Calvin C. Goode Lifetime Achievement Award is presented during the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, for individuals who have promoted social and economic justice, defending civil rights and enhancing the dignity of all people.<br><br>Councilman Goode remained active in his community long after his retirement, serving on the Phoenix Elementary School Board for six years; he was active with the Booker T. Washington Child Development Center, the Eastlake Neighborhood Association and the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center; as well as other non-profit and governmental programs.<br></p><p> <strong>Photos:<br><a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinGoode%5F2%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode Port​​​​​rait</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinGoode%5F1%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode Portrait #2</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FYoungCalvinGoode%2Ejpg">Young Calvin Goode</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinGoodePortrait%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode Portrait #3</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinGoodePortrait2%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode Portrait #4</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinGoodeSpeaking%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode Speaking</a> <br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinandGeorgieGoode%2Ejpg">Calvin and Georgie Goode</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FGoodeFamilyatInauguration%2Ejpg">Goode Family at Inauguration</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCGoode%5FRosaParks%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode and Rosa Parks</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCGoode%5FBicycle%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode in Downtown Phoenix</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCGoode%5FHighSchool%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode High School Graduation</a><br> <a target="_blank" href="/newssite/_layouts/15/Catalog.aspx?Url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ephoenix%2Egov%2Fcitymanagersite%2FMediaAssets%2FCalvinGoodeBuilding%2Ejpg">Calvin Goode Municipal Building</a>​​<br>​​</strong></p></div></div>​<br>NewsarticleCommunications Office ArticleMichael Hammett602-859-5089602-534-0108michael.hammett@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/14/Michael_Hammett.jpgcityofphoenixaz

Lois Weiss climbs the stairs to her fourth floor office in downtown Phoenix. Rest assured, there's an elevator in the building, but she's into staying fit — she has been her whole life, so much so, that it was her first real career before ever entering law enforcement. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>"Going into college, I needed to find a way to pay for things," Lt. Weiss explained. "As I was pursuing my bachelor's at the University of Illinois [at] Chicago — was pursuing that for criminal justice, I majored in that, I minored in political science. So during that time, personal training was a monetary benefit."</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Lt. Weiss worked four years as a personal trainer at a health club in a suburb of Chicago. Personal training led her to the world of bodybuilding, and she eventually found herself in competitions. She said she walked away with a handful of trophies, and some invaluable life lessons, too. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div> <div>"It taught you intestinal fortitude," Lt. Weiss said. "It taught you emotional equity, in any mission. It taught self preservation, self regulation, it also taught me how to work seamlessly with other people because it really put in the forefront of my mind, I can't go this alone."</div> <div></div> </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Ultimately though, she said she did not see herself in personal training forever, and after graduating college, she returned to an interest she had as a little girl. <br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>"I wanted to go into law enforcement," Lt. Weiss said. "I just knew I did. Personal training wasn't going to ever allow me the conduit, or the way, to hold people accountable for horrible things that they did."</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>So, in her early 20s, she moved out west, and the rest, as they say, is history. Lt. Weiss has been with the Phoenix Police Department for 27 years. She has been in roles from financial crimes to homicide to undercover details, always keeping with her the strong mental and physical foundation from that first career. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Now as a leader of the department's Professional Standards Bureau, she cannot stress enough the benefits of a team with a diverse employment background like her own. </div> <div>  <br></div> <div>"I believe that diversity galvanizes the department," Lt. Weiss explained. "And this is going to set us up for longevity in this organization that I truly believe is the best organization in the country."</div> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
