City Council Thanks Military Veteran Employees

Peoria and Cox Communications partner to launch the Pentagon Channel in Phoenix, Tucson


Peoria, Ariz. (Dec. 19, 2007) – One week before Christmas, the Peoria City Council honored city employees who serve (or have served) in the United States Armed Forces and finalized an agreement with Cox Communications that lays the groundwork for Cox to provide the Pentagon Channel to all Cox subscribers in Arizona.

At the 7 p.m. City Council Meeting Dec. 18, Mayor Bob Barrett and the Peoria City Council along with officials from the Department of Defense thanked city employees who are veterans of military service. Many of these employees still serve as members of the National Guard and reserves. Each veteran employee received a commemorative “dog tag” from the department’s America Supports You program.

 “It’s especially important this time of year to show our support to military service members and their families,” said Mayor Barrett. “Many of these families can’t be together over the holidays because husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, moms and dads are in uniform and deployed away from home – many of them in harm’s way. Hopefully our actions tonight show them that we’re thinking of them and are thankful for their service.”

Following the employee recognition, the City Council took another action to show support for military families. They amended the city’s cable franchise agreement with Cox Communications so that the cable carrier can make the Pentagon Channel available to its digital cable subscribers in Arizona.

In 2005, Peoria became the first Arizona city to offer the channel to Cox cable customers within its city limits. Since then, the city and Cox (with support from the Department of Defense) have been pursuing ways to offer the Pentagon Channel to a bigger audience.

To make it work, Peoria gave up control of one of its public, education and government channels – a move that allows Cox to move forward with plans to make the Pentagon Channel available to all of its digital cable subscribers in Arizona (currently the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas).

“This agreement with the City of Peoria, Cox Communications and the Pentagon Channel is truly historic and serves as a strong example of how the public and private sectors can come together to provide and show support for our troops and their families,” said Allison Barber, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and creator of the America Supports You program. "By making the Pentagon Channel available statewide, Arizona’s military members will receive vital and timely military news, which is especially important to the families of our deployed members who may not have access to this information because they’re not located on or near military facilities.”

Cox officials hope to have the channel on their Arizona system as early as February 2008.

“Cox is excited to be part of this unique opportunity to partner with the City of Peoria to be able to carry Pentagon Channel on the Cox digital channel lineup in the Valley and Southern Arizona,” said Cox Vice President of Community Relations Ivan Johnson.
