Gaines files for re-election to Assembly

Ted Gaines, who represents the Lake Tahoe Basin in the California Assembly, filed re-election papers in Auburn on Friday.

Gaines announced previously that he would not run for Rep. John Doolittle’s 4th Congressional District seat.

“I want to continue to represent voters in terms of fiscal responsibility, which is important given the economic condition of the state currently,” Gaines said. “I also want to continue to see if we can create a new practice of how we function as government.”
