                       SAM VEDERMAN ADDRESSES THE JUNE 4, 2012
         On Monday, June 4, 2012, the Town of Quartzsite Common Council held a Special Meeting to approve the canvass of the May 15, 2012 runoff election and judge the qualifications of Mayor-Elect Ed Foster, Council Member-Elect Mark Orgeron and Council Member-Elect Patricia Workman.
The Common Council judged Ed Foster and Mark Orgeron to be unqualified to hold office and judged Patricia Workman qualified to hold office. 
This office is currently reviewing the action taken by the Common Council at the Special Meeting.        
I ask that all citizens remain calm and engage in respectful discourse while the review process occurs. 
The results of the May 15, 2012 runoff election are as follows:
Mayor  - Ed Foster received 401 votes (56.32%) and Jerry Lukkasson received 305 votes (42.84%).   
Council Member - Mark Orgeron received 398 votes (29.03%), Patricia Workman received 387 votes (28.23%), Barbara Cowell received 305 votes (22.25%) and Joe Winslow received 264 votes (19.26%).


  1. I cannot believe how corrupt the entrenched criminals in public office are. They make Saddam Hussein and his merry men look like Captain America in comparison.

    When is the Marshall going to clean up and rid this town of such filth?

    What is our crooked unelected town council trying to hide,?. I bet the books are cooked.The unelected crooks don't want us to see the books because they have spent us into millions of dollars in dept. They are still spending and they will not stop until they are removed

  3. I thought if you were "registered" to meant you are qualified to vote!? Doesn't seem right that the council is able to postpone swearing in the people that were voted "check, if registered voters, are allowed to vote" Surely drivers lic. etc. are showed when you sign up to vote. I know I had to show ID before I was allowed to register to vote.
