Gaines, who kept her Assembly District 6 seat with more than 76 percent of the vote over opponent Andy Pugno, said she is “excited and honored to represent El Dorado County.”
She noted that the district “voted overwhelmingly against taxes” and that she would “make sure (the Proposition 30) money will to to the classroom.”
The assemblywoman said her goals are to “fight to keep the government accountable” and to “continue to fight towards regulatory reform.” Her “ultimate goal is to get people back to work.”
As for the campaign itself, she said it was “fantastic for me,” but she is “glad it’s over. I’m excited to get back to work and I’m very interested in holding government accountable,” she said. “Oversight and accountability.”
Pugno did not respond to calls for comment.
