Louis Howe was a long-time political advisor to Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who was elected President of the United States no fewer than four times. So, gentlemen – and lady, as joining us is correspondent Kate Copperopolis. – here we are back where we started last spring – District Five.

KC: With Spellman finishing third and not making the run-off election, the campaign has been quieter than previous Supervisorial elections, at least until recently.  Shortly after the Primary Spellman, in a widely circulated email, appeared to blame former Tea Party allies for advancing the candidacy of Roy Estakrhi, whose 17% of the vote was widely believed to come at Spellman’s expense. Now, in a very late development, Spellman ally and member of the Calaveras Unified School District Board Gregory Gustafson is putting up signs in the District urging voters to write in his name on the ballot. Atwater: Too bad his name isn’t Spellman – it’s ‘way easier to spell.
