A public memorial for Jim Rivaldo, the last man to talk to Supervisor Harvey Milk before he was assassinated, will be held tonight at City Hall. No doubt there will be a large contingent of city officials past and present paying their respects to the late political consultant.

Rivaldo, 60, died last month of liver cancer. According to the Bay Area Reporter, Rivaldo had also been suffering from AIDS and hep C.

Rivaldo is best known as having helped launch Harvey Milk's political career, although he logged many other electoral successes in his long career. More recently, Rivaldo helped elect District Attorney Kamala Harris and Supervisor Bevan Dufty.
