State of Jefferson


DEL NORTE COUNTY, Ca. — A move to create a new state out of Northern California counties seems to be growing.

Tuesday morning, rancher Mark Baird, who leads the attempt to withdraw from California in Siskiyou County urged Del Norte County supervisors to consider joining the movement.

Some Del Norte officials have said they are open to the idea while others have said it’s unfeasible.
