Claude Mattox, Phoenix Councilman and Mayoral Candidate, Won't Disclose Super Bowl Junkets
Peggy Neely and Greg Stanton, former council members and current mayoral candidates, tell New Times they didn't attend any Super Bowl games.
"Any travel the councilman has done in his official capacity with the City of Phoenix can be discovered with a public records request through the city's Public Information Office. Had he received any 'gifts' they would have been declared as is required by law. He is not required to disclose his own personal private travel or purchase of tickets."
(We know Willie was at the Super Bowl.)
We checked with Mike Kennedy, an attorney at Gallagher and Kennedy and the chairman of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee, repeatedly for answers, particularly about who attended Super Bowl games. He finally called back today and says he will have a response, perhaps by week's end.
