The candidates running for Stockton’s Assembly and Congressional districts will appear together at 6 p.m. Oct. 15 in Long Theatre on University of the Pacific’s Stockton campus.

Ninth Congressional District candidate Ricky Gill, a Republican, and incumbent Congressman Jerry McNerney, a Democrat, will appear first, followed by a second forum with 13th Assembly District candidates Republican K. “Jeffrey” Jafri and Democrat Susan Eggman.

The event is being organized and co-hosted by the League of Women Voters and Pacific’s Political Science Department. A team of panelists from the community will ask questions of the candidates and each candidate will have the same amount of time for responses, along with opening and closing statements.

The event is open to the public and doors to Long Theatre, 3601 Pacific Ave., Stockton, will open at 5:30 p.m.

Audience members will not be admitted if they are wearing any political memorabilia such as buttons, T-shirts and hats. Signs also will not be allowed in the theater.
