On UC Davis Picnic Day in 2014, former Mayor Ruth Asmundson organized a garden partygathering of the Davis City Council “elected.”
The 17 people pictured are 47% of the 36 elected since the earliest elected attendee (Mayard Skinner, 1966).
This is impressive and even more so when one subtracts the 5 elected who are deceased and the 8 who are alive but no longer living in Davis.
36 minus 5 deceased and 8 moved away leaves 23 likely attendees.
The 16 Davis resident attendees out of the 23 possible is an amazing 70 percent.
Such a percentage suggest a high degree of cohesion and camaraderie among that portion of the Davis political elite.
