… And Now we Have Some Races

Believe it.

Linda M Park has made over 20 public appearances in her three-week-old campaign.

Placer County and ElDoardo County are getting acquainted with Les Baugh from Shasta County.

Endorsements are coming. Checks are being written, we have some races on our hands – this is going to be a great season in Placer County Politics.

This has all been made possible by the lack of leadership by the Gains. Even the simplest of gestures and involvement could have stopped their train wreck.

The anger in the district is palpable over the double dipping of the gains dynasty.

Instead of leadership we have a family dynasty built on betrayal of stakeholders in the respective districts with the backdrop of a rented house in Rocklin.

In this installment of the Gaines inspirational leadership series – I explain why us peasants should stand in awe…

Ted Gaines actually did something.

Now that he has a primary opponent, he is writing op-eds in local papers (that non-political types don’t read anymore)…

… about light bulbs.

Billions in the hole. Federal Lands / State Lands being shut off to people. Welfare out of control. Open Borders. Terrorism. Gas Prices. Unemployment. Businesses Fleeing California. Idiots in Sacramento banning common items in the name of (fill in the socialist excuse here)… And the government stupidity over a light bulb ban comes to the front of Senator Ted Gaines’ (Zero-Roseville) mind.

When I read the op-ed – I was astounded as the verbage in it is clearly not that of Ted’s – suggesting that his CPU/Controller wrote it.

Once again the family dynasty leaves the serfs of SD-01 with the same leadership deficit that we have in AD-06.

The solution is summed up in Four Words: Les Baugh Citizen Legislator.

Got some love from the Sacramento Bee!

Today’s edition of the “BUZZ” column:

WORTH REPEATING

“Most of the people in grass-roots efforts are bristling against the kingmaker concept.”

AARON PARK, campaign manager for Les Baugh, talking to the Redding Record Searchlight. Baugh, a Republican and a Shasta County supervisor, is challenging incumbent Sen. Ted Gaines, R-Roseville

It’s true – we deserve representation, not a political dynasty.

Here is the text of an Email from Dan Logue:

Chico – North State Assemblyman Dan Logue today announced that he would be seeking reelection to the newly drawn Third Assembly District seat.  Logue was originally elected to the Third Assembly District in 2008 and has represented the district for the past four years.

“Redistricting has caused many changes in the North State, but It has been my privilege to represent the residents of Third Assembly District for these past four years and I look forward to continuing to do so,” stated Logue.  “I have had to examine where my strengths are and where I can be most effective for the North State by continuing to serve in the Third Assembly District seat.”

The Third Assembly District is comprised of all of Yuba, Sutter, Tehama, Glenn and portions of Butte and Colusa Counties.

Here’s what this means – the current AD01 Race is now tossed in to a tizzy. Brian Dahle from Lassen, Ted Owens from Nevada, and at least one more person from Shasta County are rumored to be jumping in to the fray against already declared liberal Republican Rick Bossetti.

AD01 – Siskiyou, Shasta, Modoc, Lassen, Plumas, Sierra, Nevada 1/2 of Butte and 1/3 of Placer. Dan Logue was to have moved to Lake Wildwood in Nevada County to run.

Regarding Jim Nielsen – sources have told this blogger that Gentlemen Jim is not running for his third term against Dan Logue – rather (in the opinion of this blog)  Gentleman Jim is going to conserve his resources to run for State Senate against Dan Logue after Doug LaMalfa wins election to Congress.

There are two opponents to Doug LaMalfa – my friend Colonel Pete Stiglich and another guy from Shasta County that wants to split the vote with Stiglich to enable the third candidate to win. (Gotta love Republicans and their firm grasp on strategy)

Les Baugh is still running against Ted Gaines for SD-01.

Ted Gaines is Running Scared Already

Les Baugh. Have you heard of him?

You will soon – he is a Supervisor from Anderson, CA in Shasta County.

He is running against Ted Gaines for State Senate.

Ted Gaines is taking Les Baugh seriously – as Ted Gaines and Sssssteve Davey are going to places Ted has never seen before for public appearances.

This is the same Ted Gaines that can’t drive 2 miles to a Placer County Republican Party event – who is now showing up in Redding and Yreka (hint – 4.5 Hours north on I-5) because he wants something.

Sssssteve Davey does too – for his paycheck to continue.

Maybe Ted Gaines will crawl out long enough to try and mend fences with all the people he’s irritated over the years in Placer County in order to get re-elected? (Somewhere, Bruce Kranz is saying “I told you so”.)

I am not holding my breath waiting for Ted Gaines to do the right thing – all I have to do is look at the liberal Republican he appointed to the local Central Committee to see where his heart really is. (but, that is a subject for another post later)

Look for Ted Gaines to go another $200-250k in the hole on this campaign, it seems to be his style. Perfect fiscal Conservative, eh?
