Valley Springs, CA — A third candidate has thrown his hat into the ring for the District 5 Calaveras County Board of Supervisors seat.
Real estate appraiser Michael McDaniel of Rancho Calaveras says the current supervisor, Victoria Erickson, doesn´t have a good grasp of what´s going on in her district, which covers Copperopolis, Rancho Calaveras and Jenny Lind.
Erickson is running for reelection in 2006. Also opposing her is Copperopolis businessman Russ Thomas.
McDaniel said the growth his district faces should be planned along with the needed infrastructure. He noted the current method of development is haphazard.
The fifty-eight year old has been married to his wife Carol Ann for 35 years. He served with the Marine Corps in Vietnam and has been in the appraisal business for 25 years.
