A federal officer was just shot in front of the Sandra Day O'Connor federal building in a drive-by attack. Multiple shots were fired at the officer who was struck in the vest. Injuries are believed to be non-life threatening. Make no mistake, this is a direct result of the extremist anti-police attacks we have seen from BLM and Antifa across the country. This insanity needs to stop. <br><br>This is all the information I have at this time. I will update you as soon as I learn more."<br><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

This is a huge victory for our citizens, earned through their earnest measures to combat the Covid pandemic.<br><br>Special thanks to my colleagues Thelda Williams and Jim Waring for co-authoring the effort to put this on today's agenda, and to the rest of the Council and Mayor Gallego for their prudent and compassionate decision-making on behalf of all of our constituents. Even those who expressed concerns with this plan had valuable and valid points to add to the discussion, and I hope to help address many of those issues in the coming weeks with the help of our tremendous Parks and Recreation staff. <br><br>The decision to move forward with my original motion to open our fields as soon as possible wasn't easy. But I believe we have done the right thing by our residents today, and look forward to seeing our kids back at play."<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

I have had serious questions about this incident from the beginning, and have pushed Phoenix Police to release this information as soon as possible. Based on the horrific events we witnessed in the Critical Incident Briefing video, I will continue to insist on a thorough and comprehensive investigation of this case. I have serious concerns about the nature of the 911 call and how that information was relayed to our officers, as well as the actions of the shooting officer. Again, I want to extend my sincere regrets to the Whitaker family, and thank them for their patience throughout this long and terrible process."<br><br><strong>Link to Phoenix Police Department's Critical Incident Briefing: <span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><a href="/newsroom/police/1401" target="_blank">https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1401</a>​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span></strong><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

Here are the facts: the federal government sent Phoenix $293 million for COVID. Phoenix squandered that money. Very little was used for testing but MILLIONS went to hand outs for arts and liberal activist groups."<br></p> <p> <img style="margin:5px;width:501px;" src="/district6site/MediaAssets/D6Statement_July7.png" /> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

This wasn't the 1800s, it was today. Let that sink in. We should all be angered.<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> </span></p><p>We have about 700,000 police officers in our country and the actions of one rogue officer should not be used to label the outstanding service the others bring.<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> </span></p><p>Unfortunately, the anti-police movement used this to riot and to destroy property in Phoenix last night. They must be held to account and prosecuted to the full extent of the law."​<br></p><p><br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio
