The Del Norte County Republican Central Committee supported Lori Cowan for District 2 supervisor during the 2016 election.

We have reviewed the evidence and do not find sufficient cause for a recall.

If the petition to recall is successful, the special election required would cost the citizens of Del Norte County approximately $43,000. These funds would be taken from the county general fund instead of being used for the betterment of our community.

Therefore, the Del Norte County Republican Central Committee does not support the recall effort against Supervisor Lori Cowan and the use of precious Del Norte County taxpayer funds for a frivolous election.
