John Spellman: Politics Never Broke His Heart

By John C. Hughes

"What he did with respect to protecting the Puget Sound is an example of the best of John Spellman, a man who will stand tall and do what he thinks is the right thing irrespective of political party pressure and irrespective of, 'gee, this could compromise my ability to get re-elected'. And when it came to balancing taxes and cuts, he did what had to be done. ...My heart goes out to him because I've always believed good policy is good politics...But I steadfastly believe history should show him to be one of the tallest of our governors for standing on what was the right thing to do irrespective of party, irrespective of pressure."
