September 14, 2013 - Phoenix, AZ - Councilman Sal DiCiccio recently appointed Chris Shipley as his new Chief of staff. Shipley has worked with DiCiccio’s office for more than a year, and has been an instrumental part of DiCiccio’s fight to end pension spiking and rein in out-of-control retirement costs. DiCiccio and his staff report that Shipley’s work ethic and commitment to conservative principles will not only benefit Councilman DiCiccio but also District 6 and the City of Phoenix.

Shipley said, “I am excited for this opportunity. Bringing fiscal responsibility to government is something I feel passionate about, and there is nobody who is doing more to bring it to Phoenix than Sal DiCiccio. It is an honor to be asked, and I look forward to working with him closely.”

“Chris has been intimately involved in my fight to end pension spiking and the food tax and fighting to protect the taxpayers,” DiCiccio said. “He will be an effective administrator and powerful advocate for the taxpayer and I’m fortunate to have him as my Chief of Staff.”

Shipley is a resident of Phoenix Council District 6 and is a graduate of Arizona State University. Shipley will replace Robert Pizorno, who recently joined the County Assessor’s office. The District 6 office can be reached at 602-262-7491 or
