That is 17 donors since attorney Bill Simon gave two contributions. The Form 460 Schedule A states that if the donor is an individual, enter occupation and employer.  The employer is only listed on Thomas Brickley’s individual contribution, otherwise, otherwise the internet was used to fill-in the background of the donors.  For context, David McKenna’s fundraiser was on September 8, 2011 at the San Bernardino Hilton.

In the former and current public employees column, Chuck Terrell is the former Superintendent of Schools for the San Bernardino Unified School District.  Larry Lee is currently running for the City of San Bernardino 5th Ward Council.  Tim Prince is a San Bernardino attorney, the son of former City Attorney Ralph Prince, and former San Bernardino Mayoral candidate.  Virginia Marquez, though listed as retired, is the San Bernardino 1st Ward Council Member.   Fazle Quadri, a lawyer, was an alternate on the South Coast Air Quality Management District Board at the same time in the early 1980s as David McKenna.  Roxanne Williams is a teacher in the San Bernardino Unified School District.  Bruce Phillpott is the retired City of Pasadena chief of police.

Jim Robbins is listed in the San Bernardino Area Chamber of Commerce member directory as the contact for “Liers Corp.” He is listed as the agent for service of process for Lier Corporation in the California Secretary of State website, at the same address as on David McKenna’s Form 460.  He is also listed as the agent for service of process for the dissolved California corporation Lier Music Oceanside, and the merged out Lier Radio and Music Company.  He is also listed as the agent for service of process for DR Investors LLC, a California Limited Liability Company.  According to the San Bernardino Historical and Pioneer Society, Jim Robbins bought Lier’s  Music Store in San Bernardino in 1977, and it closed in 1998 when the City’s Redevelopment Agency purchased the property.  Brian Robbins is the co-founder and managing partner of Robbins Umeda LLP, a San Diego shareholder rights litigation firm.  Darren Robbins is a founding partner of Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP, a San Diego based securities law firm.

In addition to the $8,000 in contributions of $100 or more, David McKenna received $792 in contributions from January 1, 2011 to September 24, 2011.  That is eight other contributions of $99.  Judging from the names involved, David McKenna’s contributors are friends, colleagues and a few Jim Penman opponents thrown in for good measure.
