As of the date of this posting – Gaines still only has two Placer County Endorsements.
Please also note that Vern Pierson – the DA of ElDorado County was a feature in some vicious attack ads against Tom McClintock in the 2008 Primary.
Ron Briggs was previously featured on the website but disappeared and John Knight appeared than mysteriously disappeared – and now we know why.
D.A. Vern Pierson, Supervisor Ron Briggs and Supervisor John Knight Join Gaines Campaign
PLACERVILLE, CA — El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson, Supervisor Ron Briggs and Supervisor John Knight have endorsed Republican Beth Gaines for Assembly, joining Supervisor Ray Nutting and other key El Dorado leaders who have previously endorsed Gaines.
“Beth Gaines is El Dorado County’s choice for State Assembly,” said District Attorney Pierson.
Beth Gaines is a Republican small business woman running in the March 8 special election. She enjoys widespread support in El Dorado County, home to a key voting bloc in the 4th District
“El Dorado County is a great place to live, work and raise a family,” said Gaines. “This quality of life is worth protecting and I pledge to do exactly that.”
Gaines said that the state budget crisis is impacting counties and that she will work for a solution that does not involve raising taxes on already strapped small businesses and families.
“The state government grew too big and too expensive because the legislators at the capitol could not say no,” said Gaines. “We need to slash unnecessary programs, end the welfare state mentality, stop funding services for illegal aliens and prioritize our spending on the important things, such as public safety, roads and schools.”
