Though Jerry Hill has acknowledged since September that he is gearing up for a run for the 19th Assembly District seat and has quietly gathered oodles of endorsements, he’ll finally make it official at a campaign kick-off and fundraiser on Thursday. The event is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel, 44 E. 3rd Ave., in San Mateo. Though the event will solicit campaign donations, it is open to all. For more information, call (650) 344-3243 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hill’s only opponent thus far is Richard Holober, a member of the Board of Trustees of the San Mateo County Community College District and the executive director of the Consumer Federation of California. Holober’s wife, Nadia, is the vice mayor of Millbrae. Another contender for the seat may be Millbrae Councilwoman Gina Papan, who has openly acknowledged she is deciding whether to run. Papan made an unsuccessful bid for the seat in 2002.
