These are the five reasons we are recalling all five Nevada County Board of Supervisors: Click here.
When will a special election take place?
If we get signatures quickly enough, then there won’t be a special election. The new supervisors will be elected with the regular election on June 7, 2022.
It’s important to note, all five supervisors are in office until Jan, 2023 and Dan Miller (District 3) and Sue Hoak’s (District 4) terms end in Jan, 2023 since they are moving. They will thus be considered lame ducks for six months (from the election day June 7, 2022 to Jan, 2023, and be able to vote even though they will not be in office anymore after Jan, 2023.

Do all five supervisors have to agree to open the county?
No. Most votes on the board are passed by majority, though some require a 4:1 vote.
Regardless, the damage has been done. They enabled the damage to be done, therefore, they still need to be recalled even if the county does open. They did not consider nullifying any part of the state mandates. Instead they took the money from the state with the pay increases, and expansive bloated government programs. It is believed that this is a form of bribery from the state to take over county and local governments.

2019 average pay and benefits was $68,000. They also receive a county pension and medical benefits. Click here to see their actual salaries and benefits on Transparent Nevada County.
How much time are they required to work per week?
To our knowledge, the Nevada County supervisors, only have to be present at the weekly meeting which equates to approximately 4-6 hours per week.
Can a recalled supervisor run again after recall?
Yes, they can.
What do those supporting the recall want to accomplish?
We want every citizen in the county to know the reasons for recall. It’s upto the citizens to decide if they want to recall their supervisor.
We believe, that when people know what their respresentatives have been doing, they will immediately write a letter to the grand jury, attend the meetings and speak out, write letters to the editor, and warn their neighbors that their property rights, right of life and right to liberty are at the break of ruin.
