RE: Sheriffs’ Event in Modoc County April 21

Six Sheriffs and Attorney (Karen Budd-Falen) will hold panel in Modoc

Alturas, CA – It is a hot topic as county sheriffs discuss the “war on rural America” at the Support Rural America Sheriffs’ Event on April 21st.

“Sheriffs are the only law enforcement entities, across this country, truly accountable to the people. Period,” said Modoc County Sheriff Mike Poindexter, who will host this Sheriffs’ Event in Alturas.

County sheriffs are elected by local constituents and realize their first priority is to “their people.” Rural counties are facing hard economic times and sheriffs are working with citizens to find answers. Support Rural America is unique in bringing these sheriffs together in regional meetings.

Sheriff Poindexter said this event will feature a panel of county sheriffs who will discuss the need to stand on the Constitution and the oath they took, when they were elected. Other sheriffs attending are: Dean Wilson from Del Norte County; Dean Growden from Lassen County; Bruce Haney from Trinity County; Greg Hagwood from Plumas County; and Oregon’s Glenn E. Palmer from Grant County.

In addition to the panel of sheriffs, Wyoming attorney Karen Budd-Falen has been invited to speak on property rights and will kick-off the afternoon event at 2 p.m. It will be held at the Desert Rose Casino Convention Center at 901 County Rd 56. Doors open at noon.

Admission is free.

Support Rural America Sheriffs’ Events began in February in Yreka, CA. when five county sheriffs held a panel discussion. A series of youtube videos are available on-line through Support Rural America.com, Constitutional Sheriffs.com and Pie n Politics.com

The Modoc Independent Tea Party is sponsoring this event. Tables are available for vendors and groups that would like to share their information for $20. Contact Doug Knox at 530-233-3599 to obtain a table. Support Rural America retains the rights of refusal.

Those who believe the Constitution is the law of the land will find hope in this panel of sheriffs. The next Support Rural America Sheriffs’ Events are slated for Trinity County May 19 and Tehama County on June 23.
