Quartzsite prosecutor switch - more "special" council meetings

Friday, April 22nd, in a special meeting of the Quartzsite Town Council, Town prosecutor Matt Newman was "released" from his "prosecutorial duties"...

Then, on Friday, April 29th in another Special meeting of the town council, former La Paz County Prosecutor Martin Brannan was hired to replace Newman amidst a firestorm of controversy. 

The item was placed on the agenda by town mismanager Alex Taft, and was not open for public discussion. All members of council voted to approve Brannan, except Mayor Ed Foster, who voted in opposition.

    This is how it works in La Paz County. If you are compromised you get promoted. Just look at Dan Field, Alex Graft, Jeff Gilbert, Al Johnson, John Drum, Holly and Larry Irwin, Sam Vederman. (I could go on... ok I will, George Nault too) Do you think these people got where they are based on merit? WTFU La Paz County

  2. You have got to be kidding, Martin is the worst choice you people could of made. He was a piece of crap C/A when he was in office, let more people go free then should of been. What makes you think he will do any good in QTZ? He couldn't make it as an attorney in his own private practice when he left La Paz, what is trying to save a good name for himself to run for C/A again in 2012? Bad bad bad bad choice.
