Mayor Claims Quartzsite, Arizona Under Martial Law After State Of Emergency Declared During Secret Meeting

(THE INTEL HUB)   Quartzsite, Arizona, the town now infamous for arresting a citizen for speaking during a public city council meeting, has apparently declared martial law.

This, according to Quartzsite Mayor Ed Foster, happened after a secret meeting was held during which the city council voted in favor of declaring a state of emergency.

Jennifer Jones, the woman who has gone on a full scale crusade against corruption in the small town of 3,600, posted an urgent update on here blog The Desert Freedom Press.

“At 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,” wrote Jones.

That’s right, according to this report, police in tactical gear ordered a sitting mayor to a potentially illegal secret meeting.

The Mayor instead drove himself to the meeting which he later called illegal.

One Response to Mayor Claims Quartzsite, Arizona Under Martial Law After State Of Emergency Declared During Secret Meeting

  • “Martial law” my arse. AZ Town councils cannot declare “martial law.”

    At an rate, your state’s constitution contains no provision for “Martial Law” or “Martial Rule.” Arizona Revised Statutes rule in this area of law.
    You are in incorporated city or town, so only the MAYOR may declare an emergency. In Arizona, if not a city or a town, only the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors may do so.
