Did it raise a red flag for anyone that (California State Assemblyman) Ted Gaines attended the Olympics on our behalf? Can someone tell me who paid for him to attend the Olympics? Did he take his wife and 10 kids and did the taxpayers pay for them, too? Did he really need to go “on behalf of Placer County” for an Olympics that is 12 years away? I’d liked to have gone. Perhaps we could have sent a citizen to represent our county. Will you be paying the taxpayers back for your airfare, hotel stay and meals out? Where are your priorities and personal responsibility, Mr. Gaines? Misty Green, Auburn
