The Ashfords’ Annual Backyard Picnic

As always, State Rep. Michael Ashford and Ruth Ashford’s annual summer picnic draws the usual mixture of friends, political allies, elected officials and candidates vying for office in the fall elections. Over grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, guests mingle, talk politics, compliment the beautiful surroundings and, of course, raise a little money for Democratic Party office seekers.

This year’s event, on Saturday July 22, introduced to the guests in attendance candidates Nick Komives and Gary Johnson (City Council); Dale Emch (Judge Municipal Court) along with incumbents seeking re-election: Councilwoman Cecelia Adams, PhD; Toledo Board of Education Member Polly Taylor Gerken.

The festivities culminated with a donation of two bicycles from the Ashfords to Tina Butts of T-Bonds for the company’s annual summer school supply giveaway in August.
