Brosowske has always maintained that he resided in Hesperia while running for office and sought to be reinstated. He presented a 200-page document to the council via his attorney that he said offered proof.

“We are disappointed in the decision, especially because the court recognized that Mr. Brosowske moved from Apple Valley in May 2018,” Brosowske’s attorney, Chad Morgan, told the Daily Press. “ If that is true, then Mr. Brosowske could only have been a legal resident of Hesperia.” Morgan said he plans to appeal.
