Observation Meeting
The Shasta County Board of Supervisors meeting was very informative, structured, and maintained the objectives of the agenda. I observed the meeting on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 at 9:00 a.m. at Shasta County Administration Center. The meeting lasted for about forty-five minutes.
Shasta County consists of five districts with a supervisor for each. District 1, David Kehoe; District 2, Mark Cibula; District 3, Glenn Hawes, who was absent at this particular meeting; District 4, Linda Hartman; and District 5, Les Baugh.

The next issue on the agenda was about the General Government. A person from the Administrative Office gave a legislative update regarding Shasta County and County wide issues. He informed the audience about the State Budget that worked to the early hours the previous morning, 2:00 a.m. successfully passing the budget. However, it was a bogus budget where they wanted to take funds from Cal Works and MediCal to assist in getting California out of debt, including tax the taxpayers more. It was absurd and the Governor would probably veto it with it already being approximately three months late.
Supervisors Baugh and Kohoe gave their about it ‘being ridiculous’ with the tax payer’s paying for the California Legislature to stay up until 2:00 a.m....
