After viewing many local people’s blogs, comments, videos and recent interviews on July 12th 2011 an outsider can see this town is dealing with bad politic and abuse of power. Where power is defined as “possession of control, authority, or influence over others” and politic is defined as “characterized by shrewdness in managing, contriving, or dealing.”
The issues that have erupted in Quartzsite Arizona recently appear to have come from a long term struggle of the local citizens that are fed up with being pushed around. An investigation of the town’s political figures will hopefully bring to light the real inside issues that are at work. If any investigation should occur the agency performing the investigation should not look just for legalities but also focus on the duress caused to the people by the political figures abuse of power and bad politic.
The nation and the media should not take the light from Quartzite so soon. The media appears to be publishing stories as if it is just another small town dealing with local every day disputes. This is not the case and something needs to be done about this bad situation. Even though the town of Quartzite is small the nation needs to understand that no matter the size of the town, the issues are real and is conducted within a form of bad government right here in the United States.
