Sal DiCicco answers a question during the debate for Phoenix City Council District 6 between Karlene Keogh Parks and Sal DiCiccio on Wednesday July 24, 2013.

As active members of the Greater Phoenix business community, we have had many opportunities to engage and work with Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio. During this time, we’ve found him to be a hard-working and honorable public servant. He has held strong positions — some of them unpopular — but he always follows his conscience and does what he thinks is best for the city.

Individually, we have observed or participated in dozens of political campaigns. However, never have we seen one devolve to the level of unwarranted personal attacks being used in this race. Whether you agree with Sal or not, no candidate deserves this kind of treatment.

Voters across the country routinely object to the kind of dirty campaign tactics being waged against Sal DiCiccio. Phoenicians are no different in their desire for the intelligent conversation and civil discourse they expect and deserve.
