Stop the Recall. I fully endorse Joe Chimenti, Leonard Moty, and Mary Rickert.
Anne Wallach Thomas
Shasta County Supervisors have been targeted for Recall by a small group. Shasta Forward was created to support our County Supervisors Rickert, Chimenti and Moty and prevent the recall efforts.
A recall election would cost the County up to $640,000. That is taxpayer money that would otherwise go to essential services. That would be a misuse of funds, when two Supervisors were re-elected just last year, and the other is up for re-election in a matter of months.
“The estimated cost for a special stand-alone election to recall one supervisor is $400,000. That cost goes up to $520,000 for two supervisors and $640,000 for three supervisors.” Darling Allen | County Clerk and Registrar of Voters
Supervisors Moty and Rickert were re-elected just last year, at the height of the pandemic. Voters knew the issues then and re-elected them for another four years.
Supervisor Joe Chimenti is scheduled to run again in 2022. If the recall did proceed, it would be less than a year before voters would decide on his re-election anyway.
