The Government is grossly bloated and out of touch with its electorate. We don’t want a new Government… we want a return to a reasonable, representative government.

Our elected officials must understand their role; to secure the rights of the people. It’s time to restore local government to its proper form and function to preserve and ensure liberty for future generations. It’s time to hold our Shasta County Supervisors accountable.

About us

Recall Shasta is a nonpartisan group of parents, business owners, doctors, nurses, and teachers who seek to restore local control back to the community of Shasta County. Our purpose is to establish a board of supervisors who will respect and uphold the U.S. and California Constitutions, maintain fiscal transparency and accountability, honor local ingenuity, and protect the individual liberties of its citizens from the tyrannical coercion from state and national governments.

This is a grassroots effort. Our leadership team does not condone nor tolerate personal attacks, violence, or threats of violence.

FAQs

A group of elected officials representing the people of a county. Shasta County is divided into 5 districts (balanced by population), therefore 5 supervisors.

The County Board of Supervisors operates as both the legislative and executive authority of the county, as well as having quasi-judicial authorities. They may set priorities for the county, supervise official conduct of county officers, direct and control conduct of county litigation, and raise revenue. Some examples include: Hiring our public health officer; Hire a CEO to act for them; They help decide how our County spends money.

No. You must be a registered voter in their district.

We still need Y-O-U! We need your help to gather signatures, donations, and raise awareness. It’s time to get involved and change our future.

It means we are not satisfied with their job performance so we are going to recall them before their term is up. If the recall is successful, that will prompt a special election.

We anticipate an election between October and December of 2021.

If a supervisor resigns, Governor Newsom will appoint a supervisor in their place. Election code: 11302

This recall is a course correction for Shasta County. It is not a witch hunt, it’s a necessary performance appraisal. As leadership in this county during 2020, these Supervisors have been critically assessed and are being held accountable by us, the citizens.

The reason for a recall is as follows.

First, a betrayal of public trust. These supervisors didn’t defend our county from state government overreach. They bowed to Governor Newsom, a known corrupt, lawless politician, for county funding. They then used that CARES funding, over $18 million dollars for County programs over businesses by 6 to 1. Indebting us to the state indefinitely for these new programs. As recently as last month, Supervisors Moty, Rickert, and Chimenti failed a motion to terminate our local state of emergency, for over one year they have refused to assert local control.

Second, a need for fundamental change. For too long our supervisors have operated without critical oversight by citizens. Our board has been irresponsible with taxpayer money, directing it to be used in inefficient county departments like administration. These supervisors have not held Dr. Karen Ramstrom and Director Donnell Ewert accountable for mismanagement of this pandemic, including their oversight of a bloated HHS department of over $200m, making up over 50% of the entire county budget. To prove the inadequacy of our HHS department, we must only acknowledge this: that the parameters dictated to our county by the state were unbefitting and ill-suited for our county. Then note these state mandates have been perpetuated for over a year by our health departments, as sanctioned by these Supervisors, causing lasting detriment to our business owners, elderly, and our children.

Third, this is a last resort, we cannot afford to wait to elect new representation. We cannot risk another round of shutdowns and school closures. We must have Supervisors that will actively protect our county from state overreach, that will secure our rights to operate our businesses, schools, and churches as we see fit, and that will be proactive and innovative in their approach to return government to its smaller, proper role in this county.

This is not personal. This is responsible citizenship. These Supervisors have performed poorly at reflecting the will of the residents of Shasta county. Therefore, a recall has become necessary, to determine which supervisors continue to enjoy the support of their community and which ones need to be replaced. It’s time to restore reasonable, representative, and accountable government in Shasta County, for ourselves and our future generations.

They can vote to re-open the county if they choose. Some say this is only symbolic. And it is symbolic… it is our local government encouraging businesses to stay open, for children to go to in-person school, and elderly to be visited in care facilities. But it is also practical. It allows the county to spend funds in the best way for our local economy instead of being beholden to state mandates.

No. Most votes on the board are passed by majority, though some require a 4:1 vote.

2019 average pay and benefits was $68,000. They also receive a county pension and medical benefits.

To our knowledge, Shasta County does not have a requirement, or a code of conduct applicable to Supervisors.

We are looking to reseat the recalled Supervisors with candidates who will uphold the constitution, restore our county to its pre-covid status, and stop state government overreach. We want every citizen of this county to be free to choose what is best for their family! In work, school, religion, or play, we believe you should be able to decide what’s best for you, not the government.

The short answer is, any reason at all. Any citizen of voting age may seek and begin the process to recall a politician. This recall is for three specific reasons:

  1. Betrayal of public trust.
  2. Need for fundamental change.
  3. A last resort.
