Petition Closed

The City of Phoenix plans to renew its banking contract with JP Morgan Chase on July 1st, entrusting our money once again to a major contributor of the financial crisis that wreaked havoc on our city. Instead, they should utilize LOCAL community banks to strengthen Phoenix's financial infrastructure and to invest in companies that are investing in us.

Why would the city continue to reward the bad behavior of large banks such as Chase? Because we've sat back and allowed them to do so -- until now!

Please sign this petition to tell Mayor & Council that we want OUR taxpayer money to support OUR economy, OUR businesses, and OUR community -- NOT a mega-bank that has no vested interests in the well-being of our Phoenix community.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Phoenix Mayor & Council.

----------------
Divest from Chase and instead bank LOCAL!

Don't renew the City of Phoenix banking contract with JP Morgan Chase. Don't entrust our money once again to a major contributor of the financial crisis that wreaked havoc on our city. Instead, utilize our LOCAL community banks to strengthen Phoenix's financial infrastructure and invest in companies that are investing in us.

Why would you reward the bad behavior of large banks such as Chase? Don't invest in them; invest in Phoenicians. We want OUR taxpayer money to support OUR economy, OUR businesses, and OUR community -- NOT a mega-bank that has no vested interests in the well-being of our Phoenix community.
