Council Declares STATE OF EMERGENCY?


About noon today, the town council, at the request of the police chief, declared an official state of emergency. Sgt Xavier Frausto was dressed in tactical gear when he and the police chief demanded the mayor get in their car. Mayor Foster declined, and drove himself to town hall. Frausto unlocked the door for the mayor. Foster and others saw town officials convened for official business, with the town clerk and town attorney also present. "This is an illegal meeting!" said Mayor Foster. Sgt Frausto locked the door on him.  When asked later for a comment about what transpired, Concilman Bob Kelley said he couldn't talk about it, Barbara Cowell said she didn't understand who called the meeting, or what thay had done, and Jerry Lukkasson denied it. According to another news report "Taft told the Pioneer the meeting came about after discussions between Town Attorney Martin Brannan, Gilbert and herself regarding threatening e-mails sent to council members and town officials. She said they received advice from attorneys for the League of Arizona Towns and Cities that they should declare an emergency and call a special council meeting."





What a tangled web we weave...

What's the difference between declaring an emergency and martial law? See:

(b) Post all public meeting notices on their website and give additional public notice as is reasonable and practicable as to all meetings.

(c) If a statement or notice is not posted pursuant to subdivision (a) or (b) of this paragraph, shall file a statement with the clerk of the board of supervisors stating where all public notices of their meetings will be posted and shall give additional public notice as is reasonable and practicable as to all meetings.

B. If an executive session is scheduled, a notice of the executive session shall state the provision of law authorizing the executive session, and the notice shall be provided to the:
1. Members of the public body.
2. General public.
C. Except as provided in subsections D and E of this section, meetings shall not be held without at least twenty-four hours' notice to the members of the public body and to the general public. The twenty-four hour period includes Saturdays if the public has access to the physical posted location in addition to any website posting, but excludes Sundays and other holidays prescribed in section 1-301.
D. In case of an actual emergency, a meeting, including an executive session, may be held on such notice as is appropriate to the circumstances. If this subsection is utilized for conduct of an emergency session or the consideration of an emergency measure at a previously scheduled meeting the public body must post a public notice within twenty-four hours declaring that an emergency session has been held and setting forth the information required in subsections H and I of this section.
E. A meeting may be recessed and resumed with less than twenty-four hours' notice if public notice of the initial session of the meeting is given as required in subsection A of this section, and if, before recessing, notice is publicly given as to the time and place of the resumption of the meeting or the method by which notice shall be publicly given.
F. A public body that intends to meet for a specified calendar period, on a regular day, date or event during the calendar period, and at a regular place and time, may post public notice of the meetings at the beginning of the period.

H. Agendas required under this section shall list the specific matters to be discussed, considered or decided at the meeting. The public body may discuss, consider or make decisions only on matters listed on the agenda and other matters related thereto.
I. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this section, notice of executive sessions shall be required to include only a general description of the matters to be considered. The agenda shall provide more than just a recital of the statutory provisions authorizing the executive session, but need not contain information that would defeat the purpose of the executive session, compromise the legitimate privacy interests of a public officer, appointee or employee or compromise the attorney-client privilege.
J. Notwithstanding subsections H and I of this section, in the case of an actual emergency a matter may be discussed and considered and, at public meetings, decided, if the matter was not listed on the agenda and a statement setting forth the reasons necessitating the discussion, consideration or decision is placed in the minutes of the meeting and is publicly announced at the public meeting. In the case of an executive session, the reason for consideration of the emergency measure shall be announced publicly immediately before the executive session.
K. Notwithstanding subsection H of this section, the chief administrator, presiding officer or a member of a public body may present a brief summary of current events without listing in the agenda the specific matters to be summarized, if:
1. The summary is listed on the agenda.
2. The public body does not propose, discuss, deliberate or take legal action at that meeting on any matter in the summary unless the specific matter is properly noticed for legal action.

  3. Hi Jennifer;

    Please go to my website at www.brendattedders-gal-five-one.webs.com, for more information on how to stop your town from the MARTIAL LAW TACTICS. You need 13 or more republic members to create your Dejure Grand Jury so you can indicte ALL DEFACTO CRIMMINALS FOR ASSAULTING you and your sisters and brothers in Arizona. Also, I am current waiting for my mentor to mail me the documents for Stage 2 or How to become a secured Party Creditor for the public side of the DEBTI ACCOUNT IDENITY, what appears to be my name in Capital letters. Stage one, the UCC financing statement and addendum was successful and Stage 2 is pending. My home page has enlightening videos to view for encouragement. Once you have joined the Arizona Republic and seat your county with your Jural covenant documents, etc than the DEFACTO HAS TO LEAVE so the de jure republic will take over as our servants and not as tyrants against flesh and blood flowing men, women and children. You can find the Arizona republic website on my link page for more information. Time is of the essence. http://www.michigandejure.org/Education/GrandJury.aspx

  6. The 9/11 truth is out on the internet.
    This is the truth: The WTC was destroyed by 3 underground thermo-nuclear explosions. They were detonated by the US government which used this as an excuse to lead the US and its allies into invading Afghanistan and Iraq. All these wars and deaths were based on a lie.

    Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

    Will you help to tell the truth to the world?

  8. Please take care in a state of emergency with these paranoid schizophrenic delusional "Peace Officers" & other "Public Officials" they will not hesitate to shoot first, align their stories second, exonerate themselves third.

    I would seriously consider moving on. Your story has made national news. The "deputy" mayor Foster is there and has official duties of some sort in some capacity. Let him try to figure this one out.

    It is obvious that the state's authorities could care less as do federal authorities. I doubt the military would ever take action. If the state was going to relieve the out of control officials from their duties, it would have done so a long time ago when you filed formal complaints with the state AG.

    I do not want to see you get hurt there & they will come if they declared a state of emergency saying that you are inciting riots. It is only a matter of time until they come to arrest you & during a state of emergency, I do not think you have any rights before summary judgement is issued, and God forbid the a sentence of death by summary execution. There is no playing around under martial law. As far as I know, immediate public executions for failure to instantly or accurately comply with orders are acceptable. Marital law/States of Emergency are no laughing matter-even the Constitution is suspended including a writ of haebus corpus is suspended meaning you are guilty because you are charged & no evidence can exonerate you.

    Whatever you do, take care, God Bless & Godspeed.

  9. Oh Jen. I not going to tell you to stop what you're doing...I think it is necessary in these ugly times. But consider what "detersbb" said about the police coming after you. I know some of your officers are good but it only takes one or two to do great injustice.

    Please keep us updated. Obviously, the whole web is watching now. Keep up the good fight!

  14. Anonymous is behind you, Jennifer. We do not forgive and we do not forget. Transgressions such as this one are happening everywhere, and more and more do we find the public is watching. We find them listening, recording and ultimately sharing these moments of shady business all over the internet. We are paying attention. We are not blind, we are not cattle, we are human beings with unalienable rights. To tread on them is to go against human nature, and to embrace the nature of greed, secrecy and supremacy. Who wants to live in a world dictated by such creeds as these?
