“It was an awesome night! All across the board the politics of fear were rejected by the politics of hope and the ‘Jeffersonians’ were soundly trounced. The best their candidates in Lassen could do was about 30% and the Measure G results blow a big hole in their aspirations. They have no coastline on the west and have lost half of their border with Nevada,” said Jim Chapman, Chair of Lassen County Board of Supervisors.
Cindy Ellsmore, Keep It California Chair, said: “We applaud the tremendous local grassroots effort to counter Measure G, as well as Lassen County voters for recognizing Measure G was misguided. The plan would leave the county financially devastated and severely at-risk, and Lassen families more vulnerable.”
Ellsmore also noted that, “there are certainly challenges, but increasing our region’s influence in Sacramento can only be accomplished through collaborative advocacy, focused education, and bridge-building. We look forward to working with Lassen County leaders and communities to make our voice louder in Sacramento, and improve life for all Northern California families.”
