FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Committee to Recall Kevin Crye presents “Notice of Intent” to Kevin Crye at
Board of Supervisors Meeting Tuesday, April 25, 2023
A group of concerned Shasta County citizens has reasons to recall District 1
Supervisor Kevin Crye for his extreme votes and actions in his short time in office that negatively impact all Shasta County residents.
What: The Committee to Recall Kevin Crye delivers “Notice of Intent” to recall District 1
Supervisor, Kevin Crye.
Why: Kevin Crye has misrepresented himself to Shasta County Voters. He campaigned on being fiscally responsible, improving public services, and uniting our community. His actions and voting record while our District 1 Representative have been just the opposite of his promises. 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 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 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.
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 second-in-charge of “New California State” (an organization dedicated to splitting California).
Increased potential for cuts to needed county programs to fund 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.
When: Tuesday, April 25, 2023, during Open Comment at Shasta County Board of Supervisors Meeting. We’ll answer questions at the BOS break around noon.
Where: Shasta County Board of Supervisor Chambers, 1450 Court St., Ste. 263, Redding, CA 96001.
