The wave that has been sweeping through Northern California and Southern Oregon seems to be gaining notice…. now, according to reports around the region locally tagged as “the State of Jefferson”, Tehama County has decided to put the proposal regarding “statehood” on its next ballot. Our local paper, the Siskiyou Daily News of Yreka, California, has carried several reports on those counties fighting to be heard, including one that ran last week.
According to that report:
“The Tehama County Board of Supervisors returned to the State of Jefferson question Tuesday and decided to let its constituents choose the county’s response by putting the declaration on the June 2014 ballot.
The vote was 4-1. District 5 Supervisor Burt Bundy provided the no vote.
‘I’m a very firm believer in the democratic process of voting,’ District 2 Supervisor Sandy Bruce said before the board’s decision.”
