WOODLAND — With just a few days to go until Election Day, Yolo Superior Court Judge Dan Maguire continues to lead his opponent, Deputy District Attorney Clint Parish, by a two-to-one margin in campaign fundraising.
Documents filed late last week show Maguire, who presides over the Dept. 15 civil calendar, collected $18,519 in monetary donations during the latest reporting period of March 18 to May 19, while Parish raised $9,280 during the same time frame.
Most of Maguire’s financial support came from attorneys and fellow judges, some from as far away as Southern California, according to an itemized donor list. His largest contributions during the latest reporting period included $2,000 from Judicial Excellence Together, a Sacramento-based political action committee, and $1,500 from attorney Tom Gede.
The incumbent judge also received just over $1,200 from the Gardner, Janes, Nakken, Hugo & Nolan law firm in Woodland, as well as $500 each from Yolo Superior Court Judge Steven Basha and attorney William E. Donovan.
Parish’s top contributions of late were in the $500 range, from fellow prosecutor Rob Trudgen, restaurant owner Mary Yin Liu, Dan Ramos of the Ramco Enterprises development company, Vitek Mortgage and the Reliable Tire company. He also received $350 from Cross Court Athletic Club in Woodland.
Yolo County Supervisor Duane Chamberlain and former Supervisor Frank Sieferman Sr. have contributed $225 and $325, respectively, during the campaign.
Nonmonetary donations totaled $3,128 for Parish and $950 for Maguire.
Meanwhile, Maguire heavily outspent Parish, paying out $42,126 for campaign literature, consulting services and ballot fees. Parish’s expenses, primarily for campaign mailers, print ads and consulting services, totaled $16,121.
Neither candidate took out any new loans during the latest reporting period. Parish still has $11,000 in outstanding loans, while Maguire’s total $20,000.
