Kai Savaree-Ruess was an ASUCD Controller (2006-2007), succeeding Devin Whitney. Prior to this, he held the title of Internal Affairs Commission Chair.

Savaree-Ruess, formerly an Academic Affairs Commissioner, unsuccessfully ran for ASUCD Senate on the Student Focus slate in the Winter 2005 ASUCD Election. He worked in a LEAD executive office, for the enemy party. Despite claims that he is a double agent, working to leak top secret Student Focus plans from the beginning, he might just be a single agent. We really just don't know.

What we do know about Kai:

  • Enjoys music, long walks on the beach long talks with Chris Herold
  • A member of the Focus on Student LEADership slate
  • He was appointed as controller because he has the will to do the job, the drive to get the job done, and the ability to work with everyone.
  • He also ran in the ASUCD Mock Election 2006, but lost to P-Money
  • He has joked "I seriously would think about killing a newborn kid before allowing more LEAD kids up here." Soon thereafter Senator Amaha was quoted: "He will pay for that." (11-6-2006) As three LEAD Senators were subsequently elected, parents across Davis have been guarding their children more carefully than ever.
  • The closed session on Kai was a result of a confrontation and alleged threat between himself and LEAD candidate Andrew Peake at the Coffee House during the ASUCD Senate debate. The resulting argument led Senator Patel to call for a closed session. |—add aggie link/info—|

Kai was appointed by President Darnell Holloway; the competition for the Office of the Controller included former ASUCD Senator Eric Fox and Director of ASUCD Refrigerator Services Alex Li. Kai was confirmed as the 2005-2006 Chair of the Internal Affairs Commission on June 2nd, 2005; he was later confirmed as the Controller on April 6th 2006. Congratulations, Kai!

A closed session was called on Kai on Thursday November 9th, 2006, which everybody knew was about the threatening of Andrew Peake (go see that page for discussion on that issue). Nothing happened. The ASUCD Court later determined that the closed session should have been public, but the recorder has never turned in those minutes.

"I don't even know what happened, but Kai has been doing a great job so far. So something must of happened today or this week because I don't even know anything that happened. It going to be a long night." -Molnar

2006-11-08 23:42:58   Right before an election, what is this? —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-09 00:03:13   This is L.E.A.D. opposing those who would sacrifice babies to the patron god of elections Xendur. —JosephBleckman

2006-11-09 00:08:28   Do you feel it worthwhile to speculate about this on Facebook? I think Schwab should help to end the speculation if he really knows something. —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-09 00:15:52   Dude, I know something. I actually know a lot about this. But mainly, I'm just enjoying the speculation. —BrentLaabs

2006-11-09 00:18:10   I applaud your dedication to chaos Darth Laabs, however, wouldn't it cause more debate and discord to know the reason? —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-09 00:18:49   This election hasn't had a good scandal yet. Has Student Focus delivered? —JosephBleckman

2006-11-09 00:25:51   Actually, there's another scandal, quite unrelated to this one, in the works. However, to the best of my knowledge, that one isn't actually true. It may get some Aggie coverage, though. —BrentLaabs

2006-11-09 00:31:09   Care to elaborate? —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-09 00:35:10   Supposedly an Independent candidate was campaigning in the dorms. —JamesSchwab

2006-11-09 00:39:57   Yeah, if it is Dustin that's absurd, he's a freshmen. Hard not to be noticed. And none of the independent candidates have spent anything. —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-09 00:44:18   Wasn't I. While I do eat at the dining commons I do not wear Senate campaign stuff in there, nor have I set foot into a dorm this year beside to visit friends on four occasions. Just wanted to be clear... —JosephBleckman

2006-11-09 00:46:57   Can't be Arie because he sends freshmen to do his bidding. And Kirk has been busy. —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-09 20:52:43   The closed session on Kai has lasted for almost two hours. There is also a race on who can send the first ASUCD Court lawsuit. —SteveOstrowski

2006-11-10 02:23:47   It ended up lasting three hours. —JosephBleckman
