Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego used her first State of the City address to rally for the Valley’s light-rail system ahead of an August election that could derail it.

“On this stage, with the biggest audience I’ll have between now and the August election that will decide our light rail’s fate, I want to speak candidly about what light rail has meant for us, and what it will mean for Phoenix if we go backwards on our public transportation system,” Gallego said.
