Jefferson activists to rally at state Capitol

With leaders from two more counties having signaled their support for a State of Jefferson, advocates will hold a rally at the state Capitol tomorrow and present statehood proclamations to legislators.

From the committee via Liz Bowen at Pie N Politics:
The State of Jefferson project is gaining steam as the Jefferson Declaration Committee will present two more Declarations for withdrawal from the State of California on Jan. 15, 2015.

“We are closer to making Jefferson a reality than ever before,” said Mark Baird, spokesman for the Declaration Committee. “We are thrilled to present Declarations from two more county boards of supervisors. Glenn County and Yuba County agree that it is time to restore equal representation.”

Supporters of the State of Jefferson will rally from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the West Steps of the California Capitol as committee members present Glenn and Yuba County Declarations for withdrawal from California to the Secretary of State and both houses of the state legislature.

Both county boards of supervisors approved the decision for withdrawal during 2014. Glenn Co. Supervisors approved the Declaration with a 5-0 vote and in Yuba Co. the supervisors voted 3-1 in favor of splitting from California.

Glenn and Yuba join Siskiyou and Modoc County Boards of Supervisors, who approved the Declaration in 2013. Siskiyou and Modoc Declarations for withdrawal were presented to the State on Aug. 28, 2014 by the Jefferson Committee and Jefferson supporters.
