In Wednesday’s paper, Mike Holmes contends that Dennis Campanale, Democratic candidate for Assembly District 4, is totally responsible for the cost of the runoff election coming in May (Reader Input, April 20). Sorry, Mike, but you are wrong. Ted Gaines is the only responsible party. Even if Campanale chose not to run, there would have been a runoff election between the two Republican vote-getters, Beth Gaines and John Allard, unless of course one of them had gotten over 50 percent of the vote. As was shown, Beth Gaines beat John Allard by a very small margin. I happen to like Mike Holmes personally and am glad that he is on our city council. But he is just plain wrong here.
