Amusing Controversy at the Davis Democratic Club

It seemed like the Davis Democratic Club Newsletter would be a good place to advertise this blog, so I plopped down some money and paid for a full page ad last month, and heck I did it again in the issue that just came out last week.

But it appears this blog has drawn some controversy from former Davis Mayor Joan Poulos. She wrote a letter to the editor of the newsletter (to the bemusement of those who actually print the newsletter who did not realize they had an editor), I have scanned, copied and pasted it for all to see, along with the response.

As a long-time member/supporter of the Davis Democratic club, I have concerns about the tone of the newsletter (and certainly about the “blog.”(the biggest ad in the newsletter.) I am delighted to see the support for Lois Wolk and Mariko, but there appears a great tendency to trash the faithful Democrats who have long carried the torch in Yolo County. I have no idea who doug paul davis is, other than he is 34 and a Saggitarius, (maybe) but I know that people like David Murphy and Steve Souza and Ruth Asmundsun have done much to make Davis what it is. We can support new ideas, like Freddie’s headline grabbing demonstration about the inequalities of the marriage laws, and lament the lack of airing of Air America. Diverse viewpoints should be welcomed, but the snide comments about those who may disagree are not helpful.

This is election time. Political parties exist to elect candidates. As a club, we must be ever mindful of this and not be captured by a small, but vocal, critical minority.

-Joan Poulos

Editors response:

Please distinguish between paid advertising and the editorial content of the newsletter. The News has not mentioned David Murphy, Stephen Souza or Ruth Asmundsun since I became editor. All articles are edited by criteria found in the bylaws and below.

David Murphy is a Democrat? I was not aware he was involved in Democratic politics. I have never met Ms. Poulos, but perhaps she would like to sit down and discuss my astrological sign and perhaps some of my concerns about the policies of those she is quick to defend. She is of course entitled to her opinion and if she wants to defend Murphy, Asmundson, and Souza, she is welcome to come on here and do so–just like anyone else.

I had no idea that the purchase of my ad would be so controversial–it seems that was money well-spent. I’ll be running another ad next month, too.

    Quite revealing letter from Poulos..
    Diverse ideas are welcome as long as they are without “meat”..gestures of public solidarity and fretting about Air America but do not suggest that perhaps not all Davis voters are thrilled with what Asmundson and Souza have done or tried to do for our city…like Covell Village and the Level 4 Biohazard lab just to name two.

    Just to name two? How about three, four, and five.

    Not happy is an understatement. Look what they’ve done with suggestions from the various commissions that serve the city, such as Planning, Aging, HRC.

    Whether you agree with the commission recommendations or not, the commissions have volunteers that give time and Souza, Asmundson and Saylor don’t appreciate the time invested. That is unless it’s something they completely agree with. They are not open to ideas, suggestions, discussion, or public input.

    This was very evident at the council meeting last night. It’s disturbing to see Asmundson and Saylor attempt to limit an opportunity for future public input. Souza has not been good on process either.

    Let’s not forget about when Mike Harrington and others were skewered by Souza and friends during the Measure X campaign. That went beyond snide commentary, but bordered on outright libel.

    I haven’t read the newsletter, but disapproval of actions of elected officials keeps them on their toes and reminds them to listen beyond their close circle of allies. It’s a good thing.

    indeed, don.

    i find it amusing that one of the original 1970s city council progressives gets this reception on a nominally progressive blog. but then, donna lott was considered by all to be a moderate in her last run, even though she was associated with the 1960s and 1970s progressives. as was mike corbett, the big bad developer behind covell village (and village homes).

    which is why i get so frustrated with the label itself. what exactly is it based upon?

    i do wish that poulos and other former pols posted here. i think the discussion would benefit from their perspectives.

    Why doesn’t ‘Liberal’ mean ‘open minded’ anymore?

    How is it that so many people have ‘liberal’ views, but become so close-minded that they don’t understand that not everyone thinks the same way?

    I’m glad I left Davis (especially it’s politics) behind.

    I really hope that’s not the true response the DDC sent to Joan Poulos. It’s a snippy, juvenile and poorly written response. But, on the other hand, I got a kick out of the advertisement itself. Any ad that holds up as an endorsement Steve Souza’s complaint that David’s postings about him are “near defamatory” is okay by me.

    “….. mike corbett, the big bad developer behind covell village (and village homes).”

    Mike Corbett was open and honest about his relationship with the Covell Village developers.When asked, he revealed that he had no power to determine the fate of the Covell Village project as he was not a Covell Village partner. His role appeared to be as the “public face” of the Covell Village campaign in some form of fee for service arrangement.

    Hey, Joan’s letter is fine. I get the point that she doesn’t want three of her favorite people in town to be trashed by the Davis Democratic Club. Change is difficult for any one. We do need to think “Big Tent.” Welcome the young liberals with their “new” ideas and inclination to question and challenge, while respecting the older liberals who seem to like what they’ve created in town and want it to remain like they remember it to be. This process just never seems to end – generation to generation.

    I guess I’m not following the point here by Anonymous.

    I simply placed an ad at my own expense in the Democratic newsletter. None of those individuals mentioned by Poulos were mentioned in the ad–other than a quote from Souza where he was “trashing” me.

    I do not understand why Asmundson and Souza are somehow sacrosanct because they are Democrats. They certainly did not extend that courtesy to others who they proceeded to trash despite any sense of shared party affiliation.

    In fact, that’s been my problem with Davis politics in general. Where I come from Democrats do not trash Democrats. Here there is more infighting and back stabbing than there is cooperation within the party.

    [Mike Corbett’s] role appeared to be as the “public face” of the Covell Village campaign in some form of fee for service arrangement.

    This is just factually wrong. Mike Corbett designed Covell Village. He drew up all of the plans for it — the housing, the retail, the parks, the bike lanes, the wildlife habitat, the public buildings, etc.

    While he was not one of the principal landowners, Corbett would have participated in the building of many of the custom homes and other projects in the development. The Covell Village Partners were planning on selling many of the lots to other builders as the development moved along over 10 years. That is how most developments work. In fact, Lewis Homes, which is going to build Cannery Park, will do the same thing — that is, after they develop the physical infrastructure, they will sell of (in their case) all of the lots that will become homes, apartments, office buildings, etc., and those will be developed by other companies.

    Again, Rifkin is LOUD but wrong as I personally spoke with Mike Corbett about his authority to determine what ultimately would be built in Covell Village.. Yes, he probably would have built some custom homes himself as the word about town was that THIS was the deal he had with Whitcombe.. “spokesperson” for the Yes on X campaign and IF it passes, payment in lots to build on… otherwise..nada.

    Doug, Because I didn’t see the newsletter with your ad, I think that Joan is responding to your blog rather than the ad. It would have been better for her to make her comments via the blog – her support for Murphy, Souza, and Asmundson. I think that her letter to the Democratic Club was probably a safer way to voice her fears. The letter from Joan doesn’t sound like it was responding to your ad at all, rather just a continuation of a conversation between her and others. It is perplexing to others that look at the ad and her letter and don’t see what prompted it. I was saying that the letter is fine, because I believe that letters, blogs and communication is fine. She is afraid of something and now the DCC can discuss it. I don’t think she is targeting the blog really, but change within the club.

    I do believe that the DCC needs a bigger tent and be more welcoming to Democrats in Davis. The group should be huge in Davis, but it isn’t. The DCC really needs to look at how its endorsements and support regarding local issues, where the majority of politicians are Democrats, affect overall support and participation in the club by a broad base of Democratic Party members.

    That’s the point I’m trying to make.

    Wrong again, No on X. I’ll say it quietly, as you seem to think the truth is too loud: Corbett not only designed the project, he was paid to do so.

    And as you concede, he would have developed a number of the properties himself.
