NADIA LOCKYER RESIGNS
April 23, 2012 | Nadia Lockyer's District 2 seat on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors needs to be filled in the next two months. Last Friday, The Citizen reported a short list of candidates already exists, but the seat belongs to you, not the remaining members of the board.
According to a high level county source, the list is led by former Union City councilman Richard Valle, Hayward Councilman Mark Salinas, Newark Councilwoman Ana Apodaca, former assemblyman Richard Torrico, State Sen. Ellen Corbett and Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi.
Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors will vote whether to accept her resignation. That's a given, but readers of the East Bay Citizen want a say. Join the fray and add your own name to the list of possible candidates to replace Lockyer and tell the East Bay why.
Readers have already nominated names like former Hayward councilman Kevin Dowling and Union City Mayor Mark Green. Who do you want representing Hayward, Union City, Newark and portions of Fremont?
