The Return of Spalding Clark
Republican is back as a Democrat
Charlie Nielsen beat Spaulding Clark in 2004, only to lose to him in this year's Democratic primary. Nielsen blames an anti-incumbent mood-"Of the five supervisors up for election, all five lost to challengers"-and the fact that he and Doug Fuller split the progressive vote. It didn't help, he adds, that "Spaulding ran an anti-public-safety-millage campaign."
