Gaines’ unconscionable attack mailers

EDITOR: I have now received two attack mailers from Beth Gaines attempting to portray John Hidahl as some kind of monster not worthy of a vote for the El Dorado County District 1 supervisor. The first mailer called Mr. Hidahl a “career politician.” Oh, really? John Hidahl has never made a living wage from an […]
