Spellman Served with Notice of Intent to Circulate Recall Petition~by Recall Spellman Committee

San Andreas, CA....Just prior to Tuesday’s Board of Supervisor’s meeting, Darren Spellman was served with the “Notice of Intent to Circulate Recall Petition.” The proponents of the new recall (those initiating the intent to recall) are Valley Springs and Copperopolis constituents of the former District 5 that elected Spellman in November 2010.....


This recall effort is focused entirely on Spellman’s unacceptable behavior and actions: his disregard for policies, procedures and the law; his personal attacks on citizens, fellow supervisors and other elected officials; his threats to use his position against citizens and their businesses; and his poor attendance at board meetings, study sessions and closed sessions of the board, just to name a few.

In response to voters throughout the county who are dissatisfied with
Spellman’s performance as a supervisor, the new recall committee also
intends to circulate a Petition in Support of the Recall. This will give those not eligible to sign the recall petition a way of letting Spellman know his actions reflect poorly on the entire county.

There are a lot of misunderstandings about the recall process. To legally sign the petition to recall Spellman, you must be a registered voter and live in the “old” District 5. In order to sign you need not have voted for Spellman, nor voted at all in the election that brought him to office.

Getting the required number of signatures on the petition doesn’t recall Spellman, it puts the matter on the ballot. Candidates wishing to replace Spellman for the remainder of his term will also appear on the ballot. Should the recall be successful, the supervisorial candidate with the greatest number of votes will immediately replace Spellman.

The recall committee has carefully timed this recall effort to get the issue on the November 6 general election ballot, so it will NOT be necessary to hold a costly special election.

The recall committee is looking for additional people who are willing to
circulate petitions, distribute literature, and put up flyers. The recall
committee is making every effort to minimize expenses, however would
gratefully accept donations to help cover costs of publishing the required
legal notices, printing petitions, and other necessary expenses.

More details about why this recall is necessary, information about Spellman’s poor performance, and how to sign up to help with the recall may be found at www.RecallSpellman.com. You may also call (209) 890-9939, or send an email to info@recallspellman.com.

You can make a difference! Take action – sign, walk, call, donate!
