Ashley Swearengin – State Controller Candidate – August 26th
We all had to wait until July 18th to know who would be the second place finisher in the State Controller’s race, but we’ve known since the primary June 3rd who finished in the top spot. Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, a Republican, came through with 24.8 percent of the statewide vote. Swearengin will face Democrat Betty Yee, a member of the State Board of Equalization, in the November general election for the office of Controller, where she would serve as the state’s chief fiscal officer. Please join us August 26th as we welcome Swearengin to the Sacramento Press Club.
