The State of Jefferson isn’t waiting around for the Six Californias initiative to qualify to push ahead with its plan for independence.
Supporters of the Northern California secession movement are in Sacramento today to formally lodge their complaints with the state. They plan to submit declarations from Modoc and Siskiyou counties to the Legislature and Secretary of State expressing their desire to withdraw from California and reform under a new state government.
Mark Baird, one of the organizers of the Jefferson movement, said a lack of representation in Sacramento for the north state is causing them harm and the declarations represent an official request for redress.
“What we’re doing is forming standing for a challenge if the state ignores our demands,” he said.
Four more declarations from Yuba, Sutter, Glenn and Tehama counties will be presented in the coming months, Baird said, and when the number of like-minded counties reaches at least 10, the State of Jefferson will be ready to make its move. By then, though, he hopes south staters will be willing to let them go peacefully.
“Then they’ll be free to spend their political resources to focus on problems that we don’t even understand, like gang warfare,” Baird said.
Jefferson supporters will rally at 2 p.m. on the west steps of the Capitol.
Be sure to go to the website/article and vote in their poll for separation.
For those who are interested, Jefferson leader and spokesman, Mark Baird’s home and ranch are no longer under an ADVISORY pre-evacuation notice. It was lifted tonight at 8 p.m. by Siskiyou Co. Sheriff Jon Lopey. Mark and his wife, Cyndi, live in Quartz Valley that has been threatened by the Log Fire, which at one point was 3 to 4 miles from his ranch.
Over 700 firefighters have been working on the fire building fire line and doing burnouts to strengthen the fire line. Containment of the Log Fire is 95 percent. Great news!
Hot spots are still within the 3,000 acres of the fire and much of Siskiyou County is still very smoky from the many fires and 1,000s of acres of rugged timber country that is burning.
