Assemblywoman Alyson Huber, D-El Dorado Hills, will be the keynote speaker at an inaugural gala tonight in Stockton.
Sponsored by the San Joaquin County Democratic Central Committee, the bash will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Stockton Ballroom, 9650 Thornton Road.
The actual program will begin at 8 p.m. with Huber's speech and a video feed of Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, and possibly Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Merced, according to Lodi resident Richard Blackston, chairman of Democrats of Greater Stockton.
McNerney will shoot video at the inauguration this morning and give a personal greeting that will be shown at the Stockton event tonight.
The remainder of the evening will include music by the Cesar Chavez High School jazz band, decadent chocolate desserts by 13 clubs and affiliates and the opportunity to meet Democrats from other parts of the county, Blackston said.
