Unidentified Citizen's Letter to the Editor

To the Editor: I am just a regular citizen of Quartzsite, here less than a year. To tell you the truth, I wish I'd known more about this place before I moved here.

I was told about the video of the council meeting where the man was criticized and accused of trying to extort ?? the councilman that was doing the speaking. I watched it and I think its awful. I wish I knew more about this or what happened before this grand announcement -- but I also want to know why this is allowed. How can they trash someone like that in public? At least he was nice to her -- that's more than I can say for her...  READ THE COMMENTS



The Citizen's Coalition
meets twice monthly at the PARADISE RV PARK on Moon Mountain Road at 6:00 p.m. [the night before the Town Council meetings] at 145 Moon Mountain Road in the community building behind the brick house.
  The public is invited to listen and participate as the topic of town government is addressed. 

"We encourage people to attend these meetings; the information the Citizen's Coalition is bringing to the fore is a welcome alternative to the 'status quo.' Both informational and educational, the Citizen's Coalition is becoming a force for truth and accountability, which can 'pinch a bit' those who have become accustomed to having no oversight whatsoever," one member stated.

"The Citizen's Coalition has a designated purpose, and operates utilizing the same standards of operation that Citizen's Coalitions utilize throughout the country. "

"Striving to maintain an open and equal forum [can be difficult] in a municipal setting. We support open and honest communication and encourage those with 'something to say' to use this forum to address, respectfully, current issues," said chairman Dean Taylor.

"The Citizen's Coalition website provides a forum for people to address pertinent issues without having to publicly identify themselves. All we ask is that people make no accusations against anyone but instead work to document issues that they feel are being mishandled.

"If that is indeed the case, then those matters should be dealt with via whatever legal methods are available -- personalities completely aside," Taylor concluded.

We believe as much in the individual's right to communicate without critique, as we do the community's right to hear various opinions without oversight or manipulation.




The Citizen's Coalition Wednesday evening reiterated its request for an opportunity to elect a Mayor for the Town of Quartzsite.  Meeting attendees left unsure of what the vote had been intended to entail and Town Manager/Town Attorney Dan Field was unavailable for comment Thursday and Friday, as was  sitting Mayor Walter Akin.

Also as issue during the meeting was the town's approach to zoning, delineated in a statement by Century 21 Real Estate Agent Doug Guilford. Guilford discovered an unorthodox approach to zoning issues when he purchased a property in Quartzsite only to find the C2 zoning challenged by Quartzsite's zoning official.

Among the first to warn travelers, the Mexico problem is escalating and gaining national attention.
Planning a trip to Mexico?  Now is not the time to go
. Bandits in such highly popular areas as San Carlos have travelers terrified -- and Tijuana, also a popular destination, is faring no better at this point in time. Officials attribute the problems to gang activity and hired executioners as more and more seem to be engaging in 'turf wars,' but an uninformed public should avoid Mexico travel until the danger is deemed to have subsided. We will continue to monitor this situation.




The bailout  [and its rejection]  has had everyone talking: but is it concern for avoiding an economic freefall -- or the belief that the citizenry is not being represented that's driving it? Martial Law has been implemented. Even Congress is indicating their opinions are being ignored. Bernanke was warned by Ron Paul months ago [VIDEO HERE]of the looming crisis.
