The movement calling for the State of Jefferson to become the USA’s fifty-first state continues to grow. The new state could include Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, El Dorado and nearly every county north of Sacramento.
David Tichenal, local resident and advocate for the State of Jefferson, was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
“We are ready to update the general public during a large multi-county town hall gathering, that will be held on Sunday December 3rd, at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds in Sonora starting at 3 PM,” said Tichenal. “Our keynote speaker will be state of Jefferson founder Mark Baird from Siskiyou County. I will also talk about the State of Jefferson locally and then we will have an update on the law suit that has been filed in Sacramento. Merchandise and light refreshments will be available. The meeting is free to attend but donations for the room and for the law suit are highly encouraged. We are a long way from the finish line and continue to need the public’s generous support.”
According to Tichenal, Tuolumne, Calaveras and the other counties that could potentially be included in the State of Jefferson, have not had adequate representation in the California state legislature for the past several decades. The most expeditious way to restore adequate representation is to create a new state where local issues by local people can be dealt with and proper representation will be restored.
Tichenal invites anyone who may or may not be familiar with the State of Jefferson, to come hear more information about the movement at the multi-county Town Hall Meeting on December 3rd.
