Election is unnecessary

On the subject of the coming runoff election, I am appalled that State Senator Gaines, a self-proclaimed fiscal conservative, would set this district’s taxpayers up to pay for an unnecessary second election. It’s even more distasteful that he and his family are seeking to gain financially from this situation. If Beth Gaines is elected to the senator’s old seat, they will reap all the benefits of two state paychecks and two state pensions, not to mention all the other benefits enjoyed by officeholders. Shame on them both for such callous greed. Terry Edwards, Roseville
