Kitti Asberry and her husband Jeff
Ron and Linda Wasson
For the past 3 or 4 years, I have had the privilege to serve as the secretary of the Oklahoma County Democratic Party with two outstanding examples of what the Democratic Party is all about. Kitti Asberry stepped in when our fortunes were at a low ebb. She made a personal sacrifice and put up some of her own savings to help bail out the party when we incurred a huge debt through a combination of bad luck and a good idea gone wrong. Not only did Kitti's effort save our party a major embarrassment and trouble, she also turned out fundraising efforts around to where the party gave over $13,000 to the 2006 election effort, a party record statewide.
Ron acted as the treasurer, finance officer during this time. His knowledge of the rules governing ethics regulations took a huge burden off all of us. His good humor and graciousness, often in the face of others who were graceless, was a goodsend as we worked together.
Thanks Kitti and Ron and good luck wherever life takes you.
