Spencer: I Helped Souza Win

Larry Spencer: The people I brought into the Democrat election were Democrats defending their flag. This year, 366 more votes were cast for Anne Nesse than were cast for her two years ago, with both races uncontested. Mary Souza beat Goedde by 266 votes. If I had not done what I did, the Anne Nesse votes would have been cast in the Republican primary and they wouldn't have gone to Mary.

DFO: Whether or not Spencer helped Souza win, I'll say this ... he certainly lit a fire under the local Democrats that needed to be lit.
