Gov. Jerry Brown announced on Thursday the appointment of former Assemblywoman Alyson Huber to a judgeship in the Sacramento County Superior Court.

Until recently, Huber represented the 10th Assembly District, which included Lodi.

Huber, 40, worked in two law firms as a business litigator before serving two terms in the Assembly. She opted not to run for a third and final term this year after newly drawn political boundaries shifted her district in favor of Republicans.

She has also been wrestling with a divorce and defaulting on a $1 million mortgage for a home in El Dorado Hills.

Huber will make about $179,000 annually as a judge, compared to her legislative salary of $95,000.

In an interview published earlier this month in the News-Sentinel, Huber said she never aspired to be a career politician. She completed her duties as the Lodi area’s Assembly representative on Nov. 30.

Huber grew up in Lodi and Tower Park, attending Leroy Nichols Elementary School, Woodbridge Middle School, Lodi High School and San Joaquin Delta College.

In Lodi, Huber said her biggest accomplishment was defeating a bill that would have effectively banned Styrofoam containers, which hit home with Lodi’s DART Container Corp. Plant managers said that if the bill was passed, it would have resulted in the plant’s closure.

Huber said she brought busloads of legislators on three occasions to the DART plant to take a tour and learn about the issue.

“I worked very hard to defeat the bill,” she said.

She did not respond to phone calls Thursday seeking comment on her appointment.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
