The Citizen’s Coalition recently formed in Quartzsite is taking issue with the future status of the post vacated when Bennett relinquished his position citing ‘personal reasons.
Bennett’s letter of resignation was presented to the council Wednesday, August 27th, and formally accepted at a special meeting held Wednesday, August 28th. Many spectators at Tuesday’s meeting indicated they found the diatribe presented against Mayor Bennett offensive, even though the case against Bennett — presented without interruption by Daniel Field– did not appear to be without merit.
Bennett officiated during the first part of that Tuesday council meeting and excused himself for the duration of the session, leaving the room to the remaining members of the council and Town Manager/Attorney Daniel G. Field, to discuss the case against him in open session, with many townspeople in attendance. He did not attend Thursday’s meeting when his resignation was presented for acceptance.
