Now who could have seen this coming? DiCiccio stands to gain from freeway through Ahwatukee.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sarah Fenske. Sarah, I want to have your babies. I mean that in all sincerity.

Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio has promised to be a “forceful voice” in the ongoing controversy over the proposed extension of the Loop 202 freeway.

But DiCiccio should think twice about opening his mouth on this one. Records obtained by New Times show that DiCiccio appears to have a conflict of interest on the issue: His real estate development company currently has a lease on 150 tribal-owned acres in the area — and those acres would clearly increase in value with improved freeway access, should the extension become reality

Whoopsie. At some point, voters in Council District 6 need to ask themselves if having Sal in the office isn’t just pretty much a ginormous conflict of interest from the get-go. What part of “real estate developer” are the people who have voted for him in the past, or are considering voting for him now, missing? Why do you suppose someone like him would want to be on a city council anyway? Because he really, really, really wants your trash to get picked up on time? Don’t think so.

Better start spinning, Jason Rose. And let’s see how the Republic will try to defend Sal over this.

    “I live out here,” he said. “I am impacted by these same decisions I’m involved in.”


    His wallet is impacted.

    Yeah, no surprise here. But I love how he keeps changing his statements regarding this issue.

    This guy makes me EXTREMELY nervous.

    Think ol’ Sal is related to Rick Renzi?
