Shasta County, CA – In an effort to preserve local control, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors (BOS) voted in favor of placing a Charter County proposal on the ballots for public consideration during the upcoming March primary election. The proposed charter would grant the BOS authority to appoint a replacement by a majority vote of seated members, in the event of a vacancy on the Board, rather than having the replacement appointed by the California Governor.
The proposed ordinance states that,
“whenever a vacancy occurs in the office of supervisor on the Shasta County Board of Supervisors, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors may fill the vacancy by appointment or call a special election. If the Board appoints the replacement, the appointee shall be from among the qualified electors of the Supervisorial District in which such vacancy exists and shall hold office until the election and qualification of his or her successor”.
The decision to bring this Charter County proposal to the voters highlights the commitment of the Shasta County BOS to maintain local autonomy and ensure that the voices of Shasta County residents are central in the decision-making process. With this Charter, the County aims to safeguard its ability to appoint a representative who understands the unique needs and challenges of Shasta County.
The BOS encourages all Shasta County residents to take part in the upcoming March primary election and exercise their right to vote on the Charter County proposal. The outcome will have a lasting impact on the future of local representation and governance.Draft-Ordinance-Charter-County-Proposal
