Tomorrow morning, Councilman Sal DiCiccio will be presented with the celebrated John W. Dawson “Local Hero” Award from Americans for Prosperity. The event will be held at 11:30 a.m. at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
Councilman DiCiccio was selected as the annual recipient of the local award for his continuous fight to end the regressive City of Phoenix food tax as well as his battle to rein in the city’s skyrocketing pension costs. Earlier in the year, Councilman DiCiccio also was honored with the designation of “Hero of the Taxpayer” by AFP in their yearly elected officials’ scorecard.
“I’m truly honored to be recognized with this award by Americans for Prosperity who also fight for the taxpayers,” said DiCiccio. “My goal from day one has been to protect the taxpayer and minimize government overreach into citizens’ pocketbooks.”
