Phoenix City Council to Create an Ethics Commission
The Phoenix City Council approved the creation of an ethics commission to independently investigate complaints of ethical violations against elected officials and other city leaders.
Members will focus specifically on corruption-related issues, such as potential violations of Phoenix’s gift policy as well as other possible conflicts of interest among elected officials.
The commission will be comprised of five residents of varying political affiliations: Democrats Louie Lujan and Patricia Sallen; Republicans Jose Samuel Leyvas III and Cheryl Pietkiewicz; and unaffiliated member Peter Schirripa.
