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/district7Newsdistrict-7District 7YassaminAnsari
