New Assembly Speaker to raise money for Buchanan

New Assembly Speaker John Pérez will headline a fundraiser for Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan, D-Alamo on March 18 at Round Hill Country Club.

The event is billed as an opportunity to “meet the new Speaker of the Assembly.”

The price of the encounter ranges from $100 for the “friend” seat at dinner to $7,800 for a table of eight plus tickets to the co-host reception.

If you are so inclined, RSVP Cynthia Brantly Pierce at 510-704-165y or email her at cynthia@cpierce.com.

Buchanan has no primary challengers yet and no one expects a viable Democrat will surface. Her presumed GOP challenger in November is San Ramon Mayor Abram Wilson, who also has no opponent in the primary. The close of filing is March 12, so we’ll see if that holds up.
