Based on Darrin's want for her to get more involved in community affairs, Samantha volunteers to work on the election campaign of Ed Wright, who is running for Morning Glory Circle councilor against long time incumbent John C. Cavanaugh. Initially, Darrin doesn't like the intrusion her community involvement takes on their life, until he hears Wright's platform, after which Darrin too gets involved and becomes Wright's campaign manager. Wright wants to expose Cavanaugh's immoral and illegal dealings in past capital works projects, where he has contracted the work in part or in whole to his own companies, while the projects themselves have ultimately failed because of that work. Wright believes the current water works project will be the same and calls Cavanaugh out on it, and requests the Governor to investigate. Cavanaugh in turn refuses to debate the issue, that is until he cleans up the portfolio. So when Cavanaugh is eventually cleared of any wrong-doing in the water works project ... Written by Huggo

Abner tells the Stephans' to keep their radio tuned to KXIW. K is reserved for radio stations west of the Mississippi river -- W is used for stations east of the Mississippi, and while there are a few stations that go contrary to that rule, none are on the east coast. The mistake was made because the show was written and shot in California where everyone is use to all stations beginning with a K. See more »
