Following the session, Joe Mansour, who has been acting as the residents’ spokesman, stated in an email, “we had a great meeting with the Mayor of the our city and APS senior officials.”

The session included Mayor Sharon Wolcott and District 3 City Councilman John Williams and an assistant city manager.
