Rowdy Recall Group Sparks Clerk-Recorder Closure

Some of the proponents of a recall of all five Nevada County supervisors are apparently getting increasingly frustrated. And that’s now prompted a temporary closure of the Clerk-Recorder’s Office. The news release says a group was displeased with the office’s efforts to enforce a COVID mask mandate and forcibly entered the lobby, demanding to know the status of being allowed to gather signatures. They refused to comply with the mandate and had been refused entry and also declined alternative services that were offered. The release says three proponents stormed the office, pushed an employee, and claimed they had a right to appear in person. Services are still available online or on the phone.

Rowdy Recall Group + OR + Rowdy County Staff ???

This story is not true, the News Release is a FALSE Report. I was one of the three who were at the Recorders Office that day and the complete opposite occurred. The door was locked, we rang the bell, and as the door opened, we started to enter, only to have the door shoved onto one of us, who sustained an injury by a staff member. The door was then opened, and three of us entered the room and simply asked if our BOS Recall Petitions had been approved yet.

There was no demanding and none of the county staff were pushed. We were told the petitions were not ready, so we peacefully left. We then spoke with the Sheriff Dept. to file a complaint. We have the whole incident on video which proves who is and is NOT being HONEST. Please share this story with your listeners, so they can hear both sides and judge for themselves.

Here's a video (gone viral) from the day before showing how unprofessionally the Nevada County Staff has been behaving, and inappropriately treating their peaceful citizens, only because we have a difference of opinion.

Thank you + God Bless = = = >
