Dept. of Justice won't interfere with town ordinance barring Foster The Town of Quartzsite received notifi cation from the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division, United States Department of Justice that the Attorney General of the United States will not "interpose any objection to town Ordi- nance 09-15, which was prohibits anyone who owes the town delinquent fi nes, fees or taxes, from serving in elected town offi ces. This section was used by the Common Council of the Town of Quartzsite to judge Edward L. Foster, who garnered the most votes in the May 15th, 2012 mayoral election, disqualifi ed from holding the position. Foster owes the towns attorney fees imposed by the Superior Court as a penalty when Foster fi led an unsuccessful suit against the Town in 2011 at- tempting to get the Courts to stop his recall from offi ce.
