Mnuchin</span></p><p><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">Secretary of the Treasury</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">Washington, DC 20220<br style=""><br style=""></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">Dear Secretary Mnuchin:<br style=""></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">As representatives of the City of Phoenix, a municipality that has received direct funding from the Coronavirus Relief Fund (Fund), we would like to thank you for your work on the Coronavirus Aid Response and Economic Security (CARES) Act, H.R. 748.  </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">To ensure the best results for the CARES Act, we ask that that you allow cities to utilize the Fund to replace reduced revenue. As the Treasury Department continues to develop guidance on how local governments will be able to best use the monies, this adjustment would ensure our city has the resources required to deliver critical services in the current and on-going fiscal climate. The ability to replace lost revenue due to the public health crisis is essential to ensuring that we have the resources required to continue to provide many of the core services our residents rely upon.  </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">The Coronavirus Relief Fund is one of the most important parts of the CARES Act. Without the flexibility to replace reduced revenues it will be very difficult to survive the crisis and ensure we are able to spur the economic recovery thereafter. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">Finally, we also ask the Department to support further financing for the Fund – with the requested flexibility – within any additional COVID-19 related stimulus packages.  </span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">Sincerely, </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;"> <br style=""> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;">Mayor Kate Gallego</span> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;">                                                                                 </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;"> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;"></span> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;">V</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;">ice Mayor Betty Guardado</span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;"> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;"></span> <span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;">Councilmember Thelda​ Williams</span> <span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;">                                                        </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;">Councilmember Debra Stark</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;"> <span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;">Councilmember Laura Pastor</span> <span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;">                                                                 </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;"> Councilmember Michael Nowakowski</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:"Segoe UI", Segoe, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14.6667px;"> </span><span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;font-size:14.6667px;">Councilmember Carlos Garcia</span><span style="font-size:14.6667px;"> </span><span style="color:windowtext;font-size:14.6667px;background-color:window;">     </span> <span style="color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;background-color:window;">                                             ​</span> </span></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/mayorNewsmayors-officeMayor StatementMayor's OfficeAnnie DeGraw602-502-3856602-534-9513annie.degraw@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/19/Annie_DeGraw.jpgMayorGallego
