Assembly candidate to visit South Shore

Susan Wood

Ted Gaines, Republican candidate for the state Assembly 4th District, plans to make an appearance to talk about the issues Friday.

The get-to-know-the-candidate meeting is set for noon in city council chambers at the Lake Tahoe Airport.

Gaines is running against Libertarian Michael Patrick Murphy, Green Party candidate Jerry Fritts and Democrat Robert Haswell to replace senior lawmaker Tim Leslie, a Tahoe City Republican who’s retiring.

Leslie reached the term limits for the district – two terms after he maximized his time on the state Senate.
