It is important in this time for the voices of those most disproportionately impacted to be heard. My office will continue to push for accountability, transparency, and community participation.<br><br>In honoring the lives of his and others, it is my hope that as a community we can remai​n peaceful and determined in accomplishing these goals.

Aunque nada de lo que hagamos traerá a George de vuelta o revertirá la devastación a su familia y amigos, debemos honrar su memoria y exigir justicia. Pido por el enjuiciamiento completo y justo de todos los oficiales involucrados.<br><br>El decir que este es un momento tenso para nuestra comunidad, y para las comunidades por todo el país, no es suficiente. Es importante en este momento que se escuchen las voces de los más desproporcionadamente afectados. Mi oficina continuará presionando por la contabilidad, la transparencia y la participación comunitaria.<br><br>Al honrar la vida de él y de otros, espero que, como comunidad, podamos permanecer pacíficos y decididos para lograr estos objetivos.

Today, we finally saw significant action at a statewide level.<br><br>Now we focus our attention to ensure our first responders have the necessary sanitary supplies to keep them safe during this pandemic. Our bus drivers must have safeguards in place to stay healthy and protected, passengers must have the space to social distance, and all our city employees need to feel supported and safe.<br><br>We've made strides with the implementation of small business loans, strategic closures and cutbacks, but we need more. <br><br>In a time of emergency, we must ensure all residents are taken care of. The nine members of this Council, who were elected by the diverse, resilient people of Phoenix need to make decisions together, now more than ever.<br><br><p>As a city, we will prevail, but we must work together and focus on the most vulnerable."<br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district5Newsdistrict-5District 5BettyGuardado
Statement from Councilwoman Pastor, Vice Mayor Guardado, Councilman Nowakowski and Councilmember Garcia On Tonight's Council Meetinghttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-5/1061City Council District 53/19/2020 5:15:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1061/Newsroom_Council_Statement_05.jpgStatement from Councilwoman Pastor, Vice Mayor Guardado, Councilman Nowakowski and Councilmember Garcia On Tonight's Council Meeting<div class="ExternalClass810DC0FC62F844A5B1A850F7A0B8BFA6"><html> <p>“As Councilmembers, our priority is to save lives while providing relief to working families. We are not against taking the necessary measures to combat the spread of COVID-19. We owe it to our community to have a coordinated response to this crisis. We must come together to help the most vulnerable, our residents and our local businesses that will be impacted. Leadership requires trust from <strong>all parties.</strong></p> <p>Tonight, we voted to have a larger conversation on something that has the power to gravely impact our city. To declare a “Great Emergency" is to put one person solely in charge of all decisions, specifically the Mayor. A “Great Emergency" does not give a voice to those that truly need it. </p> <p>Social determinants including economic security is a key indicator to health outcomes and will be crucial in providing stability to a vulnerable workforce that is facing unemployment. </p> <p>Our districts represent a large population of people of color, refugees, low income residents, families that live paycheck to paycheck and households with one sole income earner. As their Councilmembers our top priority is to find solutions to ensure they are protected as we fight this pandemic.</p> <p>It's irresponsible to not consider the consequences to working people and the inability of our current political systems to adequately address a health crisis and its impacts at the same time.</p> <p>Since COVID-19 has demanded we practice social distancing, it has taken away our residents' ability to be present at City Council meetings and voice their opinions. The City of Phoenix is a diverse city that has elected 9 representatives to make decisions on their behalf. In this critical time, it is even more important that we be the voice for our communities.  </p> <p>That is why we are asking the Mayor and Council to declare a state of “Local Emergency" so that the Council can maintain authority to participate in managing this crisis. Specifically, we want to work collectively on a comprehensive plan to include the following:</p> <ul> <li> <strong>Public transportation </strong> </li> <li> <strong>Relief funds for residents, specifically the elderly and other vulnerable populations</strong> </li> <li> <strong>Immediate emergency assistance for small businesses</strong> </li> <li> <strong>Worker</strong> <strong> and employee protections</strong> </li> <li> <strong>Work with federal, state, and county delegations to secure our fair share of funding</strong> <br> </li> </ul> <div>Bars should remain closed and restaurants should continue to limit service to takeout, drive-through service and delivery. We look forward to collaborating on ongoing efforts."<br> <br></div> <p>Residents can submit comment for Friday's special meeting by calling 602.262.6001 or emailing their comments to councilmeeting@phoenix.gov.<br></p><p>Arizona businesses impacted by COVID-19 can apply for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan: <a target="_blank" href="https://www.sba.gov/funding-programs/disaster-assistance?fbclid=IwAR2OVJPc2BXdw2ql4rfXNcgjHpP_n5kmRpEp9D2xJr0X80pNchsM1OxrMGU">https://www.sba.gov/funding-programs/disaster-assistance</a><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district5Newsdistrict-5District 5BettyGuardado
