Say NO! to the "State of Jefferson"

Some Siskiyou County right-wing extremists want Lake County to support the formation of a "State of Jefferson." This new state would instantly become the most impoverished in the United States, bankrupt at birth. Geographically isolated, sparsely populated, and economically disadvantaged, it would be unable to fund public education, highways, parks, or law enforcement to anything remotely approaching an acceptable standard. This silly idea offers no advantages to the residents of Lake County. So it was appalling when on February 17 3015 the Lake BOS appeared to have voted to support the county's secession from California to jump onto this sinking ship. Fortunately this ambiguous action was reversed at the March 3 meeting, when the Board decided to put an advisory vote on the November 2016 ballot and then unambiguously rejected on December 15 when they decided that the proponents should have to circulate petitions if they wanted to conduct a local vote.

To help defeat this terrible idea

By the way, be sure to check out the appalling racist remarks made by chief spokesperson Mark Baird
