Do Unions Run Phoenix City Hall?

Mar 7, 2015, 3:53 PM | Updated: 3:54 pm

Councilman Sal Deciccio thinks so. Luis Schmidt, AFSCME President for Phoenix City workers predictably disagrees. In fact, these guys don’t agree on much. But they discuss their different views forcefully, intelligently, and with civility in this week’s Think Tank. Voters will likely be voting on another city pension proposal. Are city pensions excessive? What about pension spiking? You may have an opinion on these issues. But listen to this week’s Think Tank and that opinion is more likely to be informed.
