The Lassen County Times published an Editorial, again claiming that donations to the Lassen Sportsmens Club are tax deductible and that this Club is a corporation. The Lassen County Supervisors have been giving the Lassen Sportsmens Club thousands of dollars of public money from their DISCRETIONARY FUND for decades, claiming that they were a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation while denying money to other non-profit associations with the same status as this Club. One of the Supervisors is a member of the Lassen Sportsmens Club. See kanwehelp.com/other pages
The local newspaper, the Lassen County Times, continues to claim that the Lassen Sportsmens Club is a 501(c) 3 corporation. It is not.
Kan We Help wants to make it perfectly clear that this Club, to our knowledge , has never claimed to be a tax-exempt corporation. A 501(c) 3 corporation is different than a non-profit association whereas their donations are not tax deductible.
While this Club has filed as an unincorporated nonprofit association it is not afforded 501(c)3 status

*May 7, 2018 LASSEN COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT FACES CRISIS WITH GROWING NUMBER OF OBESE DEPUTIES
Is the public at risk?
May 10, 2018 Kan We Help has confirmed from the Lassen Sportsmens Club they have recently registered as a Charitable Trust and that they have never registered as a 501 (c) 3 Corporation as stated by the Lassen County Times.
**May 11, 2018 LASSEN COUNTY HAS NEVER PROVIDED A COMPETENT DISTRICT ATTORNEY. THE JUNE 5, 2018 ELECTION WILL PROVE THIS POINT
May 13, 2018 THE .75% SALES TAX INCREASE on the June 5 Ballot?
Kan We Help has been monitoring the Lassen County Board of Supervisors spending for more than 15 years. The one constant throughout is the political and personal spending habits. The Supervisors have not maintained public buildings and have misued "discretionary funds" in the past.
Over half of the revenue from this new tax, if approved by the voters, will be discretionary.
Lassen County government does not have a steller record on discretionary spending.
Don't be misled that this new revenue will go to public safety.
The Supervisors recently cut the Sheriff's budget because they needed to replace dollars from HHS One Stop budget (which was a restricted fund).
This increase will hurt local business.
VOTE NO ON MEASURE J
May 14, 2018 FOOL US ONCE SUPERVISORS......BUT NOT AGAIN
The Lassen County Supervisors have dumped thousands of dollars into Courthouse studies hoping that the public would not notice. The studies have been an expensive ruse on the public
On Tuesday, the Supervisors will vote to spend an additional $213,605 on a lie in Agenda H-3 of the May 15, 2018 meeting Agenda.
They spent $65,969.81 for an ADA Compliance Study for all County buildings in 2017.
The Lassen Coiunty Supervisors told the public they intended to purchase a building and remodel it for $1,700,000. 2950 RIVERSIDE This old building has now cost the taxpayers in excess of $2,733,709. This building continues to have major maintenance issues and Lassen County continues to ignore any fixes.

THREATS OF BANKRUPTCY BY LOCAL GOVERNMENT TO SCARE SUSANVILLE VOTERS TO APPROVE MEASURE J?

District Attorney Stacey Montgomery has no future in Lassen County. She failed four years to show any competence. She has resorted to boot-licking. If Congressman LaMalfa is booted out of office , whose boots will she lick next? She has no skills.

Lassen County Supervisor Tom Hammond has been a "SUPERVISOR FOR PROFIT" from day one since he was appointed in the 2013 Recall of Jack Hanson.
He has grossly misrepresented his accomplishments in his District to the public. Supervisor Hammond knows that the Interstate 11 project is not coming to California.
Supervisor Hammond got into bed with Pezzullo's group, (HSP Resources) when he voted to give Herlong and 3,000 acres of public property to Pezzullo + friends. No improvements were made as promised and now HSP Resources has gone out of business. What happens to Herlong now?
June 5, 2018 It appears that Supervisor Hammond could lose his seat for District 5 Supervisor. He received only 386 votes.

It appears that Lassen County will have run-off elections in November for four County offices.
Assessor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, District Attorney and District 5 Supervisor. No candidate received 50% + 1 votes.

Measure J failed on the June 5, 2018 ballot. If passed the Lassen County Sales tax would have increased by 3/4 of a cent. This would have effected the poor in Lassen County. Lassen County is a welfare County.
The Supervisors don't get it. The voters don't trust the spending practices of the Board.
The Board of Supervisors will put this tax measure back on the November ballot

This Lassen County Board of Supervisors, like previous Boards, tells the public one thing and does something different.
The Board spent all of the money borrowed in 2015 and mismanaged most of the $ 4 million dollars.
This Board spent the One Stop money (restricted) and then took money out of Public Safety to remodel only one of the buildings. There are three One Stop Centers that help families in need. The $600,000 Grant money needs to be audited by the State.
TRUST THIS BOARD .....NO
