Sal DiCiccio vs. Phil Gordon on food tax money used for employee raises, bonuses

Watch this exchange as Democratic Mayor Phil Gordon calls Republican Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio a “child” as DiCiccio attempted to answer a question posed by Mayor Gordon.

This came as Sal DiCiccio was drawing attention to the fact that the City of Phoenix imposed a tax on food and then used that money to reward city employees with raises and bonuses!

Here is that exchange:

    Sometimes, there’s nothing else to say other than the fact that Phil Gordon is a world-class prick who is unfit for any sort of management position.

  2. Here’s my response to this disgraceful display by Mayor Gordon…

    For the record, we MUST get rid of the food tax ASAP – I will make that a priority in the Wright Administration. There are plenty of ways to cut waste in the budget so that we don’t tax food. The food tax disproportionately harms the most vulnerable in our community – those on fixed and limited incomes.
