Quartzsite recalls Ed Foster in Election

Quartzsite, Arizona August 30, 2011 - Jennifer Jade Jones ran in the recall election for Mayor Ed Foster's job, but then told voters to vote for Foster.

"There's been so much angry rhetoric, especially against the mayor and myself," says Jones.  "Somebody circulated a flyer, claiming we were trying to disincorporate the town and they another mailing to the registered voters, saying all kinds of things about us that were completely untrue. I guess in the end, it's going to come down to what people really believe."

Mayor Foster felt hopeful he'd win his own recall election.

"We're having sort of a really good turnout and I'm looking on that as a favorable moment for me right now that a large turnout is sort of good," says Foster, who was doing some last-minute campaigning near the polling place with supporters.  "I think I have an excellent chance of winning right now. I'm encouraged by the numbers of people that voted and by the favorable comments that I've received by some of the voters."

AFTER 8 p.m. Tuesday night, the unofficial results from La Paz County came in.

Of the 546 voters or 38 percent of registered voters voting in Ed Foster's recall election, Foster clinched the polling place votes.

But it was former town councilman and Quartzsite Fire Department Captain Jose Lizarraga who won, thanks to 208 early ballots.  (isnt that special)

This time has come – but still I am shy to say that I told you so.

This no good Mayor was recalled. Kind of "I told you so" development [result] but not quite, of what’s taking place in this remote desert town of Quartzsite. Read all my commentaries based on what was actually happening tragically to this town. The town was run by an ignorant Nazi-hater ex-Marine Mayor who believed that the community’s peacekeepers [the cops or police department] are his "enemies", like "Nazis" he used to shoot dead in the frontline during WWII.

He was so incompetent and ignorant that he doesn’t even know how to preside over or conduct and/or manage a council meeting. He turned the meeting into a "battle ground" where a radical leftist anarchist, the likes of media publisher and pet-groomer Jennifer Jones launched her attacks against the members of the City Council before the TV camera right there while the meeting was in progress. The meeting was out of control.

This enemy within who grooms pets [perhaps in her mind humans are also two-legged pets she could groom to her personal liking] took advantage of the Mayor’s hatred of "Nazis" in this local government, and while the Mayor’s incompetence of running the town had become obvious, infiltrated and turned the town upside down. The highly educated Chief of Police who actually was running the town at the behest of the City Council, had warned Quartzsite citizens of the danger that the enemy within who was running an attack publication against the town, was taking over this small remote township. The State was in the side of the beleaguered chief police officer and the City Council, hence the result is the recall of this no good Mayor. Nothing personal for me – I am just stating the obvious.

Paper r3volutionaries took advantage of the situation – an opportunity to attack the Establishment, the Government or the System by projecting a negative image of how bad the town’s Police Department and the City Council members representing the Government they hated are. What was disgusting was how could a bunch of radical r3volutionaries – mostly Libertarians in extremis -- could stomach the likes of the Nazi-hating Mayor and the enemy within represented by this pet-groomer, and in fact hero-worshipping them as "freedom" fighters in the bayou -- is in total disbelief really what knocks me off.
