Councilman Ashbaugh with Congresswoman Capps, Victoria Kennedy

On a beautiful Friday evening on the Shell Beach bluffs overloooking San Luis Bay, Councilman John Ashbaugh and his wife Patricia were

Congresswoman Lois Capps, Victoria Kennedy, and Laura Capps in Pismo Beach

in attendance as Congresswoman Lois Capps hosted Victoria Kennedy. This photo includes Laura Capps, who introduced her mother. Laura had worked for the late Senator Kennedy, and Victoria noted that Laura was one of the first ones at Kennebunkport to comfort Victoria in the hours after the Senator had passed away in 2010. We will always remember the “Lion of the Senate,” and his presence was felt that evening for the guests at the home of local attorney Steven Saldo. Thanks go out to Lois Capps and to Steven Saldo, and especially to Victoria Kennedy, for making it such a special evening.
