Wieckowski Wins Party Endorsement, but Hayashi Strikes First Blood

ELECTION 2014 | STATE SENATE | 10TH DISTRICT | Leave it to Mary Hayashi to overshadow a big win for Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski at Saturday’s Alameda County Democrats pre-endorsement meeting. Wieckowski overwhelmingly received the party’s endorsement in the State Senate 10th District race, but not before Hayashi attacked her rival to the sound of gasps in the audience.

Wieckowski received 104 votes out of 112 ballots. Fremont Planning Commissioner Roman Reed won eight votes, while Hayashi received none. The result was expected by both Hayashi and Reed in interviews before the vote. Hayashi, though, urged county Democrats to register a vote of no endorsement and allow the debate to be heard at the state convention next month in Los Angeles.

The new Mary Hayashi sounded circumspect about her infamous past, yet clearly showed she plans to maintain her notorious hard-knuckled style of politics. “You all know my positives. I’ve done a lot of great work for the district,” Hayashi told party leaders. “You also know my negative, which I am very sorry. I also want you to know Bob Wieckowski is not the person that you think he is.”

The statement was followed by a large number of gasps. As she continued, one voter called her out for being negative. “No, it’s not negative,” she said, before asserting Wieckowski has never been "100 percent" for labor, the environment or women’s issues. “I just want you to give me a chance to come talk to you based on the merits, not based on gossip or personal stories,” added Hayashi.

The allusion to gossip about Hayashi circulating within the local party is notable and somewhat accurate. Previously, Hayashi has charged Hayward Assemblymember Bill Quirk and Wieckowski, himself, with passing around rumors regarding her personal life. It’s also a sign the race in the sprawling 10th District, which includes areas between Castro Valley and parts of San Jose, will be one of the dirtiest in the entire Bay Area. Wild rumors about Wieckowski’s team also exist, although, not believed to be attributed to Hayashi or her surrogates.

Hayashi said she will officially announce her candidacy sometime next week. Not included at Saturday's meeting, but also a candidate, is Republican Peter Kuo.

Bob may very well win, but he's going to be sworn in next January with two black eyes and a chipped tooth. Mary is going f--- him up! Sorry.

Is she saying she has a 100% record on these issues?

Wieckowski has a 100% record for poorly managing his district staff. I heard Trish was at this meeting. Is that true?

Mary says-- “I just want you to give me a chance to come talk to you based on the merits, not based on gossip or personal stories,”

OK Mary, we won't deal in gossip.

Lets look at your actual arrest report 10/23/11
Just one paragraph from the reporting officer
-------------------------------------------------------------------
"Hayashi made several more selection of items and returned to the fitting room. In the fitting room, Hayashi tried on a red shirt. After trying on the shirt, Hayashi placed the shirt on the hanger. Hayashi dropped the hanger and at the same time concealed the items that were on the ottoman into a Neiman Marcus shopping bag that she had in her possession."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK Mary, you put the items you were shoplifting into the Neiman Marcus shopping bag you had in your possession.
Problem here Mary.... You see Mary, you hadn't made any purchases in Neiman Marcus that day.

Thus, the Neiman Marcus bag you had in your possession was a bag you brought with you from your home in Hayward.
Mary, this shows planning and intent to commit the theft.

But Mary, in the over two years since the crime, you have continued to tell the public that your crime was unintentional.
January 9th, 2012 Press release from Hayashi--

"The simple fact is I unintentionally walked out of a store with items I had not paid for."

"There were a number of personal factors that led to the situation where I made this absentminded error."

So Mary, how come you brought the extra Neiman Marcus
with you from Hayward? The bag you used to conceal the goods.

For over two years, Mary has continued the lie that the entire episode was just a absentminded mistake.

The police report (not gossip Mary) indicates deliberate planning of the crime.
Or perhaps Mary will now tell us she was just trying to be a responsible citizen and was "recycling" the flashy Neiman Marcus shopping bag.

Mary, Mary, Mary, you should have come clean 2 years ago.
But you continue to hide the truth and now the public has to be dragged through your mud again.

Or perhaps, after two years, you will give us a more realistic explanation of your crime. Thus far, it appears Mary is sticking with her original excuses.
What about the police report Mary?
What about that extra Neiman Marcus bag?
Explain that Mary.
No wonder you took a plea deal. The prosecutor would have chewed you up on the stand.

BTW, both in the June election and in the November election, Mary Hayashi will still be on 3 years probation.

If Mary says she has something on Wieckowski, then she better show it. It better not be that he's a dipstick because we already know that.

It's going to come down to Mary or Bob, and I'll be voting for Bob. No way do I want to see Mary win!

We can only support good, clean candidates who aren't beholden to the union whores.

We'll be voting for Senator Roman Reed.

Who the hell is Reed? I'm from the District and don't know who he is. Bob Wieckowski is very popular where I live and should win in spite of Hayashi's money.

Wieckowski wins easily because of his progressive values in a very progressive district. Mary is kidding herself if she thinks voters don't remember she's a crook.

That makes 2 of you voting for someone who hasn't a chance. The majority of us will be voting for Bob Wieckowski to keep Hayashi from buying the election.

My family of 14,874 will all be voting for Roman Reed.

When people vote, union whores lose--as it should be!

My family of 25,000 will be voting for Bob Wieckowski so there.

What a stupid post anon 4:55 !

I don't think your candidate ( who has very little chance) would want you to use sexist, not to mention antiunion, terms. You are hurting him more than helping.

The post from above mentions all those illegals, who can't vote anyway.

Senator Roman Reed. We need him now!

You are going to get Bob Wieckowski or Mary Hayashi. I personally hope it's Senator Wieckowski.

Senator Bob Wieckowski. Never heard of your guy. He's the only one with a chance against Hayashi.

Wieckowski wins easily because of his progressive values in a very progressive district. Mary is kidding herself if she thinks voters don't remember she's a crook.

Bob Wieckowski is very popular in our District as well as his progressive views. Should win easily unless Hayashi buys the election. Reed has NO chance which must piss off Torrico and the Dutras.

People will not support anyone who is not well known no matter how hard Dutra and Torrico push for Reed. In fact, some might say he is not clean because because of their support. The only way to stop Hayashi and her war chest is by electing Bob Wieckowski, and anyone who has a modicum of political experience and expertise knows that.

You may be a sexist who hates unions, but most of us aren't.

Reed isn't clean if backed by Dutras and Torrico. We'll be voting for Bob Wieckowski, the only one with a chance of keeping Mary from winning. Plus, we like his progressive politics in our progressive district.

Used to be someone else who was never heard of before 2008. Some fellow named...Obama. Wonder whatever happened to him? Hillary who?

I can only support good clean candidates who have a chance and are extremely popular in their districts. That's Assemblyman, soon to be Senator, Bob Wieckowski.

Reed isn't all that clean if backed by the Dutras and Torrico. We'll be voting for Bob Wieckowski, the only one with a chance of keeping Mary from winning. Plus, we like his politics which match the politics of most of the people in our district.

Senator Roman Reed, of, by, and for the people.

Never the union whores!
