TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - The Tehama County Deputy Sheriff's Association was joined by the law enforcement management association, peace officers association and joint council in voting no confidence in County CAO Bill Goodwin.

Tehama County employees are opposed to the Chief County Administrator.

"It is in the opinion of the Tehama County Deputy Sheriff's Association that the state of the county as described by Mr. Goodwin and the state of the Sheriff's Office as presented by Sheriff Hencratt is due in large part to the leadership, or lack thereof of Mr. Goodwin," the association announced in a release. 

This is about 650 of the 700 county employees. In a letter, the groups shared their concerns to supervisors and point to under-staffing and budget issues as a result of Goodwin’s mismanagement. The statements that were read in the meeting can be viewed, CLICK HERE.

The association said, "While other counties around us are thriving, we are being told that this county is experiencing an economic crisis, and not for the first time."

Bill Goodwin has been CAO since April 2005.

Below is a letter that the association received from a concerned citizen, that was read before the Tehama County Board of Supervisors at a meeting on Tuesday.

We won't be as hot today, but temperatures will still end up above average this afternoon. The threat of thunderstorms arrives in the Sierra later today, and that will bring elevated fire danger concerns to that region. Hotter temperatures return for your weekend.
