… Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world….
A small group of us formed when Supervisor Kevin Crye swung the vote that destroyed our voting system and we COULD NOT VOTE.
Republicans, NPP’s, Independents, Democrats and Greens came together to support this effort because of the serious harm Kevin Crye had inflicted on Shasta County. That vote and others led us to decide that a recall was necessary.
When 4,105 signatures were then required to put the recall on the March 5th ballot, we collected not only the required number but 800 more.
To date we have established the broadest base of support of any campaign in Shasta County history. We have more individual donors and have raised more money locally than in any other political campaign. We have almost no out-of-county money. The tiny bit we have came from friends and relatives.
We are united, we are strong and we welcome all newcomers. We must remove Kevin Crye before more damage is done. That’s what you need to know about us.
In only his first 4 months in office, Supervisor Kevin Crye has:
Gambled with OUR VOTE
Created uncertainty, confusion, and risk by terminating our local constitutional and legal voting process with no plan for how to replace it.
Ignored the advice of the Registrar of Voters and the California Secretary of State, and instead chose to rely on the disproven opinions of election deniers.
Sought input from discredited election denier and voting conspiracist Mike Lindell (“My Pillow Guy”) to help fund an unneeded replacement of our voting system.
Wasted OUR MONEY
Committed YOU, the Shasta County taxpayer, to needlessly spending an estimated $1.65 million for each future statewide election.
Placed Shasta County at risk of multiple lawsuits at taxpayer expense.
Committed county resources to an uncertain, costly, and less accurate hand count-based voting system.
Considered, actively promoted, offered, AND THEN rescinded the CEO position to a divisive and extremist candidate (Chriss Street), who, in a previous leadership role, was held liable for $7 million for financial mismanagement.
Squandered county funds to fly for a meeting that could have easily happened over the phone or on-line.
Destabilized OUR HOME
Campaigned on wanting to “unite” our county, but voted to hire Chriss Street for Shasta CEO, the man who was second-in-charge of “New California State” (an organization dedicated to splitting California).
Increased the likelihood of cuts to needed county programs by funding a new, unnecessary voting system.
Chose not to push to replace our county’s Chief Health Officer.
Brought nationwide ridicule and embarrassment to our county through his actions and voting.
We must STOP Kevin Crye from creating more chaos with
Our Vote. Our Money. Our Home.
