    I pray that the City Council and the Mayor to do the right thing. Today is World Civility Day, a proclamation signed by the City of Phoenix Mayor. We need our 9-1-1, EMSA, Fire, and Police. We need the rule of law- defunding only will increase more violence and more deaths. Last night fire downtown is an example. Had they not responded, more buildings would have been burned down. Is that the fate of our City- we need the Police Academy to be reformed. Look at how you are training your officers.

    I was ready to speak at the last meeting but I waited for 6 hours without the chance to tell you that I have cancer and have chemotherapy appointment at the end of June. HMS Host, my employer who you are about to reward with more money cut my health insurance off on June 4! I can not afford COBRA at $1600 a month and ACCHS does not cover all of my chemo. What are we supposed to do now!?

    I understand that the airport companies need rent relief to get us back to work. I am not denying that fact but what I will say is this that we are the back bone of these companies we the hands that is behind making all the food. We should not have our health insurance taken away. It is not right a lot of people myself included have a lot of underlying health conditions that either rely on treatments or medications. I have asthma without my health insurance 1 inhaler will cost me $400 a month.

    My name is Ziegrade Yeghin. I have worked at HMS Host for 16 years. There are so many unknowns about returning to work. I am high-risk and I don't feel like I will be safe. I need to get health insurance but HMS now will not offer it until I get back to work. HR told me I had to come back or I would lose my job and my seniority. I feel like they are just throwing me away after all this time! If you give money to HMS, what will you do for the airport workers?

    I support relief for concessionaires at the airport, without them we would not be ranked as the number one airport in the country by the Wall Street Journal. They bring a wonderful feel to our airport while giving local business opportunities they would not other wise have. I don’t want to see our airport go back to major chin restaurants. Please Suport local business.

    My name is Ginger Brown Im a UNITEHERE member, work at the airport as a server. I'm ready go back to work but I want to make sure that the city is thinking about me and my needs during this time. If you give bailout money to SSP how will that impact us? We need to know we will be safe when we get back to the airport and that we will have our health benefits.
