Fracturing Quartzsite - County redistricting meeting

Monday morning, November 7th, at the La Paz County Board of Supervisor's meeting, County administrator Dan Field gave a presentation on the proposed redistricting of the county, which would fracture Quartzsite into two separate districts, with Interstate 10 as the boundary. County Supervisors want to seperate "Quartzsite proper" from the RV Parks, BLM long term, and Q Mountain Subdivision which lie south of the interstate.This includes  the "mostly seasonal trailer parks" of La-Z-Daze Trailer Park, Al's RV Park, Gold Star, Hadlock's Shady Spot, Rice Ranch, Rose RV Park, Vitos RV Park, Quartzsite Marketplace, Tyson Wells, Desert Gardens Mobile Home Park. La Paz County residents are welcome to submit their comments in writing, and attend the upcoming meeting. Comments or district boundary suggestions by residents will apparently be given equal consideration with the proposal drawn up by county officials. When asked directly whether or not the current supervisors intended to run for re-election and might benefit from their proposal, none chose to answer. However Field assured those present that gerrymandering was not part of the final proposed map. Perhaps Supervisors Drum, Irwin and Pierce will confirm speculation that they will not be trying to influence the map in order to retain their seats, at the November 14th meeting.

  2. When you least expect itNovember 11, 2011 at 5:40 PM

    Yep, Dan Field, Alex Taft, Jeff Gilbert and did I say Dan Field yet, at their finest. They're not fooling anyone. Dan is the head of the snake. Cut it off and you'll end the BS.

    As an interested outside observer from Parker, good luck folks! Field, Gilbert, Taft, go to hell.

  3. This renders Quartzsite impotent. It's being done on purpose so Holly Irwin can "try" to stay on as Supervisor and Dan Field can keep his plunder ongoing.

  4. might be a good idea .southside could be a free zone.

    There's nothing free in this godforsaken County. Death to the political parasites. At the very least, may the fleas of a 1000 camels infest their armpits and private parts.
