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

Too often, firefighters hear people say, "I only turned my back for a few seconds." Sadly, just a few seconds is all it takes for a child or an adult to drown. In 2021 alone, there have been seven water and drowning fatalities in the Phoenix area. <br><br>“As a mother to two boys who love to swim and play in the water, safety and prevention are always top of mind," said Councilwoman Guardado. “I am thrilled to partner with Local 493 to help provide families the proper knowledge and tools to prevent drowning incidents." <br><br>The event will take place at a District 5 residential home in the Alhambra neighborhood. A pool fence will be installed free of charge to the family, thanks to a donation from the Local 493. The Councilwoman and local firefighters will be on hand to provide safety tips and interviews in English and Spanish. <br><br><strong>When: </strong>Friday, July 30 at 9 a.m.<br><br><strong>Who:</strong> Councilwoman Betty Guardado, Representatives from the United Phoenix Firefighters Local 493<br> <br><strong>Where: </strong>3316 W.

Governor Ducey’s signature on bills HB 2462, HB 2567, and HB 2295 effectively silences the voices of our constituents. Residents in our districts have asked time and time again for accountability from our police department. These bills are meant to undermine accountability and take away decision-making authority from cities. Nevertheless, we remain undeterred. In Phoenix we are ready to make the Office of Accountability and Transparency a reality."<br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>- Mayor Gallego, Vice Mayor Garcia, Councilwoman Pastor, Councilwoman Guardado & Councilwoman Ansari<br></div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district5Newsdistrict-5District 5BettyGuardado
