If you live in the Auburn area and you don’t live within the Auburn city limits or most of Newcastle, then you are now in Congressional District 1. Your November congressional choices are Jim Reed (D), a small businessman, rancher, and tax attorney, and Doug LaMalfa, currently a California state senator. Of the five candidates who ran in the June election against LaMalfa, none of them have endorsed him. Two of those, one a Republican, the other an independent, have endorsed Reed. Why? LaMalfa is under investigation by the FEC for June primary fraud (filed by Sam Aanestad (R), a primary opponent. LaMalfa not only has received rice farming subsidies (GOP calls it welfare) to the tune of $4.7 million. Remember to vote for Jim Reed. Patricia Grenfell, Auburn
