Kasich Campaign Press Release - ENDORSEMENT: Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin Endorses John Kasich
Today Ashley Swearengin, the mayor of Fresno, California, endorsed Ohio Governor John Kasich and joined the Kasich for America leadership team in California.
"I am proud and excited to join Governor Kasich's team," said Mayor Swearengin. "He has a proven, pragmatic and responsible record of getting things done for the American people. If we are serious about winning and putting solutions first to grow our economy, I encourage Californians to join me and support Governor Kasich as he makes his way to the convention and to the White House."
Swearengin was elected in 2008 as Fresno's 21st mayor.

"Without a doubt, Mayor Swearengin is a remarkable leader in Fresno," said Kasich. "She has led the way in revitalizing her community to bring jobs and opportunity to Fresno while also improving the public services her office provides. She is a great example of the potential we can unlock if Washington gets out of the way to empower local leaders to solve problems and make their communities stronger."
