A bipartisan group of city elected officials gathered at Phoenix Fire Station No. 12 recently to send Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema back to Washington with an urgent message from local communities.

Among the attendees were Mesa Mayor Scott Smith and Tempe Councilman Corey Woods. They were joined by local first responders and representatives from the Arizona Education Association and Classroom Teachers Association.

The group came together to express their concern about the looming budget sequester that will have far reaching effects on Arizona jobs, education, defense, health and public safety.

Earlier this year, Congress set a provision for sequestration to automatically take place on March 1 if no other deal was reached to lower the debt ceiling.

Once Congress is back in session, they will only have four days to prevent the across-the-board to the national budget.
