AG Candidate Addresses County's Top Issues
KINGMAN, AZ - Republican Attorney General nominee Bill Montgomery made a number of Mohave County campaign stops during a four day stretch in early October. The Gilbert resident, during a Kingman visit, said he'll worker harder, if elected, to partner with county officials to prosecute crimes in Colorado City.

"Mohave County is the only governmental entity in the state of Arizona to get indictments against Warren Jeffs and to bring other prosecutions against other people associated with child abuse and the underage marriages."

Montgomery said the arrest and incarceration of the Colorado City community and church leader makes this the perfect time to seek out victims and prosecute cases.

"This is an opportunity for the state of Arizona to demonstrate to the entire state, to the nation and to the entire world that we're not going to allow a lawless situation to continue," Montgomery said.

He declared illegal immigration his top priority or issue during his visits in Kingman, Lake Havasu and Bullhead City. Montgomery said his eight point plan for battling illegal immigration problems includes forming a special prosecution unit and establishing a state border patrol under the Department of Public Safety.
