Could Mary Hayashi Replace Nadia Lockyer?

Report says the senator under a cloud is interested in the Supervisor's vacancy.


This isn't a joke, though it may seem funny.

State Senator Mary Hayashi has asked members of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors if she has a shot at being appointed to the vacancy created by the resignation of Nadia Lockyer, according to published reports.

Hayashi, who got caught shoplifting from Neiman Marcus, has chalked it up to a medical issue and remained in the state senate though she cannot run for re-election.

Lockyer resigned to focus on recovering from a sex and drugs scandal, creating an interesting vacancy.

Who would you like to see get the job?

hayashi should resign...and if she's ever elected to any office again, shame on us.

Perhaps they can just "swap", sounds like Lockyer is ready for state-level government. Once you get caught stealing, you should have to step back to the county level. LOL sorry. ;)

SHOPLIFTING ARREST-$2500-NO CONTEST (brain tumor excuse)-ON PROBATION. And we can not fimd another qualified candidate? WTF?

why would we want a shoplifter with a brain tumor take over for ?we tax payers do not need to support her for life if her pea picking brain blew up in work time or vwhile she steals something again . then I thought her so called hubby is a judge in Hayward . so make it look good for the books give her something . if it were me the same judge would put me in jail for a hell of a long time plus fines . she needs to prove she is medical fit to fill the job . but who wants her if she might steal again , after all this is her 2nd time at the same store . just look back at the news stories . and yes Anthony ,I also would like to see if Liz Figueroa can take the job if she is not doing anything right now . Mary Hayashi should go get medical help before she seeks another job .we do not want her to use a twinkie case if she screw up .

So I guess we're supposed to believe her brain tumor only impairs her judgement when she goes shopping, and not at all while she's working? Right.
