Commissioner JEREMIAH RAY BLOCKER's County Webpage inaccurately states he's still SJC BoCC Chair!

JEAREMIAH RAY BLOCKER, who blocked LGBTQIA+ Pride Proclamation in 2021, is falsely stating he's still County Commission Chair in 2022. 

BLOCKER has not encumbered the position of BoCC Chair for four weeks since November 16, 2021, when I. Henry Dean was elected Chair. 

Query: were any fatcat campaign contributors possibly misled by the continued posting of this outdated information for eight weeks, from November 16, 2021 to today, January 13, 2022?

Ethics violation?

Election law violation?

Who is accountable?

BLOCKER fancies himself a Republican election law expert.

Technician, heal thyself. 

Here's my January 12, 2022 e-mail and bumptious BLOCKER's misleading County webpage:

Subject: Erroneous information on Commissioner Jeremiah Ray Blocker's County webpage

Dear Mr. Blocker:
1. Would you please be so kind as to correct certain erroneous information on your County webpage, e.g., misstating that you are BCC Chair:
2. In fact and in truth, you have not been BCC Chair since November 16, 2021.
Thank you.
With kindest regards, I am,

Jeremiah Ray Blocker, District 4, Chair
