Can’t say I blame them, either.
State of Jefferson: Board votes for separation
Tuesday’s Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors’ meeting was packed with citizens supporting a declaration aimed at seceding Siskiyou County from California to form a separate State of Jefferson.
Continuing from the Aug. 13 meeting, this second round of discussions had proponents standing, sitting and kneeling in the boardroom only to overflow into the courthouse halls to hear whether the board would vote to approve “the declaration and authorize the vice chair to sign and to request that our state assemblyman and state senator read the declaration into their respective legislative record on behalf of Siskiyou County,” as stated by Supervisor Marcia Armstrong.
The board approved the declaration and subsequent action with four board members voting in favor to one voting in opposition.”
