All About Today’s Meeting

12 Jul


Overflow crowd and lots of press coverage. Quartzsite police, present in numbers. Parker police, Sheriff’s department, and drug task force policed THE perimeter. Some attendees denied access to meeting room. The mayor delayed opening the meeting to make a statement, and thereafter left the building. Vice mayor made a statement and initiated the meeting. Angry public reactions like “NAY” on motions. Agenda item 1 approved after discussion opportunity. No call to the public. Meeting adjourned.

Long period of conversation among attendees. Protest signs present. Bold criticism of town officials and police leadership. Video cameras everywhere. Concerned visitors from Greater Phoenix Tea Party, Mesa (AZ) area contingent of Ron Paul supporters, Channels 3 and 15, and a freelance reporter.  Interviews with Cowell and Gilbert in the public area. Secret report given by Alex Taft in the office of town manager. In the words of police chiefJeff Gilbert, she was meeting with “the real reporters”. (Last week the police chief and 3 officers arrived to stop a citizen who brought a video camera, in the same offices area!). In the words of town managerAl Johnson“it’s none of your business” as he closed the glass reception window.

Former Councilman Speaks Out

12 Jul

Call to the Public has been suspended at all Quartzsite Council meetings until September. What will they do next???

 I was going to give this speech today but now I will not be able to. The world needs to see this. Please feel free to pass this along to others.  

Good evening, my name is Hal Davidson former Councilman of Quartzsite ArizonaI hope I am allowed to give this speech without being arrested. Everyone on this Council has swore an oath to preserve protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, by voting to declare a state of emergency or Marshal Law, they have, (in my opinion) violated that oath and should step down from office. Of course they will not, because ” by their actions” they have shown that they do not believe in free speech of the rights of individuals. They should be ashamed of what they have done, but they are not. 

Now that the Chief is in charge of everything how should we address him, Chief, Chairman Jeff, Supreme Chancellor Jeff, or just maybe Comrade Jeff? Only time will tell.

 I would like to commend the 10 Police Officer that have put their careers on the line to expose the Chief for what he is. In closing I will say let the word go forth to friend and foe alike that Quartzsite is no longer a place for freedom loving people and that the Constitution no longer has any meaning. I will not rest until this great experiment implemented by the architects of this great nation is reinstated and the freedom of speech for individuals and accountability of elected officials is returned to the great city of Quartzsite.

Thank you.

The bulletin boards carry notices of a meeting – this morning. The police officers were incorrectly told that is was scheduled for 9am. Arrive early – metal detector may be in place. Just ARRIVE!

OPEN MEETING LAW violation: This meeting  will be illegal due to insufficient notice to public. The website was never posted with a notice of the meeting. Many did not learn of it except by word of mouth, indicating that the “online” public is unaware. Additionally, the Quartzsite Town website could not be accessed this morning at 6:50 due to the town not providing sufficient bandwidth to maintain service.

Those people who subscribe to the town’s service where an advance email notice is sent to each of them were also left out. At least I was.
