Pamphlet Challenge Fails

Citizens have lost their legal challenge of the voter information pamphlet prepared by Bullhead City in advance of the November general election. Marc Goldstone and Mike Lipshultz filed suit alleging city officials prepared the pamphlet purposefully shortchanging the revenue restrictive Citizens for Prosperity initiative that they support. During a September 9 hearing before Mohave County Superior Court Judge Lee Jantzen, the plaintiffs argued that the pamphlet language was designed to mislead voters to get them to reject the initiative.
