On Aug. 11 at 5 pm, an Official “State of Jefferson” Presentation will be given to the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors in the BoS room at 330 Fair Lane, Placerville. The Public is invited.
On Aug. 26 at 7pm, CA Assemblywoman Beth Gaines will speak at the group’s regular meeting place, the American Legion Hall on 4561 Greenstone Rd. Placerville. The Public is invited.
The group writes, “To ensure that The People in Jefferson have an open forum for discussion in which they can exercise Free Speech, and to facilitate a forum that is in line with Thomas Jefferson’s Liberty… -This group was created to promote The Philosophy Of Liberty, among The People of Jefferson, and to provide a forum for open discussion on topics of interest to Jefferson, and to the individuals thereof.” The State of Jefferson is a proposed U.S. state that would span the contiguous, mostly rural area of southern Oregon and northern California in order to gain statehood.
This region on the Pacific Coast is the most famous of several that have sought to adopt the name of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. Thomas Jefferson sent the Lewis and Clark expedition into the Pacific Northwest in 1803, hence the association of his name with the region. The name “Jefferson” has also been used for other proposed states. If the proposal were approved, the new state’s capital city would have to be determined by a constitutional convention. Yreka was named the provisional capital in the original 1941 proposal. Some supporters of the more recent revival have also identified Redding as a potential capital.
