Say NO! to the "State of Jefferson"
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 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 unambiguously reversed at the March 3 meeting, when the
Board decided to put an advisory vote on the November 2016 ballot.
County Keep It California
campaign is in the early organizational stages. In the meantime, you can

by chief spokesperson Mark Baird
