Tenessa vs D’Acquisto regarding the removal of a planning commissioner. Watch her interrupt and run over the top of him at the 1:18 mark. It appears that Tenessa has been getting more aggressive with people in public lately. (Tenessa is the Mayor and D’Acquisto is a Redding Councilmember)

What seems to be at work is the 3-2 majority that is derided as being from Bethel Church. They are systematically removing people, stopping development, and the like.

Allow me to suggest to Ms. Audette something to be focused on instead of shutting down the fairgrounds, micromanaging staff and interrupting colleagues from the deius:

Yeah that’s right 93% of American Cities are safer than Redding, Ca.

Mayor Crime wave has herself far worse problems than Mike D’Acquisto talking about the Bethel Juggernaut. (Don’t forget that Ms. Audette was talking about being Mayor months before being elected mayor – suggesting insider dealing – aka a Brown Act violation)

Quoting the linked information above:

Conservative Mugs 970×250

With a crime rate of 36 per one thousand residents, Redding has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes – from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One’s chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 28. Within California, more than 91% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Redding.

((SNIP))

For Redding, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon. According to NeighborhoodScout’s analysis of FBI reported crime data, your chance of becoming a victim of one of these crimes in Redding is one in 160.

Ouch.

I think the ruling junta on the Redding City Council have some explaining to do, and perhaps Mr. D’Acquisto and Mezzano are completely justified in their withering criticism of the majority!

There were more meltdowns beyond Tenessa shouting down a colleague on the council… last night the Shasta GOP voted to remove Dan Sloan as Chair.

Less than an hour after being removed as Chair of the Shasta GOP by a 15-3 Vote, Dan Sloan sent an email. I have gotten this email more than once. I will excerpt the email, but anyone that got it will know exactly that this is true:

Greetings, Committee,

The meeting tonight included bylaw violations. The committee did not vote to suspend the Bylaws with a 2/3 vote before removing the chair on an interim basis. I confirmed with fWin Carpenter that the 2/3 verbiage and comments were NOT part of that discussion.
Dan Sloan ran for supervisor and some ugliness in his background was exposed. There was a trail of financial and behavioral malfeasance documented in what I saw. Regardless of the rheem of court documents I was sent, it is clear that Sloan only stepped up to serve as Chair of the Shasta GOP in order to set up his run for office.
It is clear I am not alone in the opinion based on the 15-3 vote.
So the committee, fed up with the drama and infighting decided to deal with it and let the drama continue in the mayor’s office instead. It appears that Sloan still thinks he is chair of the committee even after losing on a 5-1 margin.
Let me assist the former Chairman with a Robert’s Rules lesson (and the Shasta By-Laws are governed by Robert’s Rules).
#1 when removing an officer you do NOT need to suspend the bylaws, in fact, it is quite the opposite. It is the by-laws that defer to Robert’s Rules for removal of officers unless the by-laws specify a process.
#2 Removing an officer (or most other 2/3 votes) does not need to be noticed and can be done from the floor. The reason why endorsements are different is because that process is typically enumerated in a group’s by-laws.
#3 There is no requirement for comments on any motion.
The email continues:
I just spoke with John Dennis in San Francisco and informed him of the committee’s desire to learn more about the 10% “ask” on the speaker series. John and I spoke for a while about the situation and timeline. I am in favor of the 10% contribution.
Dan Sloan is likely going to have another restraining order levelled against him if he continues acting like the Chairman of Shasta County.
It sounds like there are a lot of issues there. I do not envy the new Shasta GOP Chair’s life the rest of 2024. Yikes.

In addition, NeighborhoodScout found that a lot of the crime that takes place in Redding is property crime. Property crimes that are tracked for this analysis are burglary, larceny over fifty dollars, motor vehicle theft, and arson. In Redding, your chance of becoming a victim of a property crime is one in 33, which is a rate of 30 per one thousand population.

Importantly, we found that Redding has one of the highest rates of motor vehicle theft in the nation according to our analysis of FBI crime data. This is compared to communities of all sizes, from the smallest to the largest. In fact, your chance of getting your car stolen if you live in Redding is one in 223.

They have got a lot of problems out there. We need strong leadership in Shasta County. I hope the new chair can help. I hope we get Mezzano and D’Acquisto some help and we need Megan Dahle and Heather Hadwick for adult supervision at the state level. Yikes.

  1. OMG…sounds like the City of Banning

  2. I am sure you have no reason to tell, but who the hell forwards county party emails to a blogger a few hundred miles away?

    Sloan should go enjoy his life, but he seems to think being a county party chair is very important. People have strong feelings, including a few of his supporters or folks who were just blindsided, but I hope the party can dodge further drama and move forward. We will see!

  3. Maybe, just maybe, some people in Stasta County know the REAL enemy…

    Infighting can expose much that was otherwise hidden…
