In my time on council, I made it a priority to better our relationship with the community we serve and build public trust. <br><br>In <a target="_blank" href="/district8site/Documents/District8Letter.pdf">February, I cosigned a letter</a> to our City Manager requesting a full independent investigation into the wrongful allegations made against individuals being prosecuted as gang members. <br><br>Today, the findings of these investigations have been made public and are of deep concern. Our City Manager laid the groundwork for immediate recourse, but it is clear we have issues that rise above administrative action.<br><br>Through these investigations, it has underscored the need for our Office of Accountability and Transparency. The lack of compliance our City management and those involved provided in this investigation is a failure of public trust. <br><br>The council will be faced with many difficult but necessary conversations as we begin session this month. I join my colleagues in calling for a special meeting on August 24"' to review these Investigations and ensure proper accountability."<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district5Newsdistrict-5District 5BettyGuardado
