In Siskiyou County, supervisors support seceding from California

Thursday, September 5, 2013

Too many folks watching “Doomsday Preppers”? About 100 people showed up for a Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday in Yreka, the county seat, and after the supes asked how they felt about the county’s seceding from California, almost every hand shot up. Then, guess what? The supervisors voted—4 to 1—to secede. Not to worry. The resolution is non-binding.

But if the supes had their way, the new state would be called Jefferson and include several disaffected counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon where, apparently, folks are fed up with being treated as afterthoughts by urban-controlled governments in state capitals far away.
