Arvada resident, Russell Weisfield, filed a lawsuit against the City of Arvada in early February stating secret ballots were used by city council in a special meeting Jan. 10 election to select Councilman Jerry Marks. The lawsuit also cited the ballots violated Colorado’s Open Meeting laws, which states public meetings must be announced and posted in a timely manner, such as a 24-hour notice, and notes the use of secret ballots is prohibited. The lawsuit asked for Marks to be removed from office until another election could be held, in which the council members votes were publically recorded.
The lawsuit was dismissed March 30 by Jefferson County District Judge Margie Enquist citing that the process may have violated the law but Weisfield did not have standing to bring forth his claim as no personal injury was demonstrated in the matter.
