Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin continues to mine local sources for her biggest state controller campaign contributions.
On Tuesday, Fresno-based Denken Farms contributed $5,000, a cash infusion that comes on the heels of multiple $6,800 contributions, which is the maximum allowed by state law.
The maximum donations -- all from last week -- came from Robert Berry, CEO of DPS Telecom, a Fresno-based maker of telecommunications-monitoring equipment; Fancher Creek Properties, the company headed by local developers Tom Richards and Ed Kashian; and retired corporate executive Pete Weber.
Also last week, Swearengin got $9,300 combined in three separate contributions from Mid-Valley Disposal and two of its owners.
Earlier this month, she received three $6,800 donations, one each from Charles Munger Jr., a businessman, Republican activist and one of the state's most influential GOP donors; Fresno businessman Richard Spencer; and Wawona Frozen Foods president Bill Smittcamp.
Swearengin's consultant Tim Clark has said the campaign's fundraising goals are $5 million to $10 million.
