Lamnin Leapfrogs Peixoto to Top Hayward Council Race; Both Win Seats

Sara Lamnin
HAYWARD | CITY COUNCIL | Community leader Sara Lamnin is now the top vote-getter in Hayward's City Council election after an update by the Alameda County registrar. Two spots on the council were available to the top two finishers. Lamnin, though, had trailed Councilmember Marvin Peixoto for the top spot since the June 3 election.

Both candidates will be sworn-in in coming weeks, but Lamnin's victory could be symbolic after being one of two labor-endorsed candidates who protested the current City Council's rigid stance earlier this year toward city employees.

Lamnin's lead is 116 votes and likely to stand since the Alameda County Registrar of Voters said Wednesday it has counted all its ballots. Incidentally, Lamnin's 4,895 votes is just 2 fewer than the winner of Hayward's mayoral race, Councilmember Barbara Halliday.

The new City Council will also be short one member after Councilmember Mark Salinas lost his bid for mayor while not seeking re-election to this council seat. Among the potential candidates for appointment to Halliday's last two years of her council term is Rocky Fernandez and Julie McKillop, both candidates from this June 3; Hayward Planning Commissioner Elisa Marquez; in addition, to Salinas.

Wow!!!. SEIU candidate and social worker Lamnin won. Piexoto, old school non-visionary conservative, came in second. Wonder how she will work with the council and Mayor who all opposed SEIU on the wage issue.

Lamnin was by far the best candidate. Hope she will be Mayor some day.

I think Elisa Marquez would be a fine addition to City Council. The others all have too much baggage.

Way too liberal and in bed with union whores.

To anon 2:44------Lamnin finished first and you finished sixth with less than 5% of the vote. The voters have spoken Mr Farias, and your sexist anti-union thoughts were kicked to the curb. No one really cares what you think.

We agree, 3:02.

Nobody gives a rat's ass about you or your thoughts. Remember Whorbett--not in this lifetime! :)

Temper, Temper Ralph Fariass. Your sexist anti union thoughts are passe and fit for a neanderthal man like you. :)

Ralph Farias got what he deserved. He's a Hayward joke!

Amen 3:53 amen______Labor kicked the anti-union troll to the curb in almost every race around the Bay. We'll take winning 95% of our races anyday.

Sorry, whores, but you don't get Whorbett!

Be sure to shit in your bloomers, now
:)

Hey Ralph, looks like people are ganging up on you, so I may as well point out the obvious. Many unions supported Swalwell too. Either way we weren't going to lose that race, so most put very little effort into it. My union is happy Eric won because we new he would defeat whoever came in second, so we can concentrate on other races in November. We believe we might do even better than our huge success rate in the primary and possibly can get 100% in the races around the Bay Area in the general. You should try running for Mayor next because I could use the laugh.

Only 3 more (Jones, Mendell, Zermeno) to oust in 2016. Please do not forget the union enemies.

Boy, 11:28, you union whores sure eat your slop. You are shitting in your pants that Whorbett lost, and you know it. That's O.K.

By the way, you whore teachers sure need to learn how to spell. The word 'knew' is what you were trying to spell, but hey, since you don't know English, how the hell could you ever teach students, right?

Sure glad the L.A. judge threw out the union whores' tenure, which is why our kids don't know up from down.

Also, get ready for ASSEMBLYWOMAN CATHARINE BAKER 2014! With your continued screw-ups, we're going to take back the state from you corrupt union whores.

By the way, don't know this Ralph, but if you don't care for him, he must be O.K.

We'll take JONES, MENDELL, and even ZERMENO in 2016. Your puppet Fernandez was thrown on the scrap heap of history. On the way to breaking the dirty, corrupt, whore unions for good!

Ralph Fariass, everyone in Hayward knows you are the Hayward antiunion sexist troll who finished next to last in your third Council race. You post on every race and almost every article that has to do with progressive moderate candidates that run against your Tea Party extremists. Your candidates like Glazer do about as well as you did. Bahabahabaha! We had about a 96% percent success rate. We'll give you 4%.

Hey Ralph how does 4% Farias sound. You'd be better off living in Wyoming. They are as out of touch as you are! Each time you ran you got fewer votes. :)

Lamnin's seat was bought with SEIU money to the tune of $80,000 (according to the Daily Review). Lamnin being seated on City Council is one of the worst things to happen to Hayward in a long time. Thankfully the equally disgusting Fernandez didn't get in. The irony is that Lamnin is so craven and ineffective, she won't make any difference. She'll eventually throw her union backers under the bus to save her seat, just wait and see. You get what you pay for.

Sara Lamnin here.

I'm the union whores number one bitch. My job is to screw over the taxpayers again and again. My only mandate is to exactly what the union whores tell me to do. I will sell out Hayward to deliver them boccu $$$

I promise not to disappoint!

It’s important to note that in contests where the Dem. State Party’s delegates endorsed a candidate, those candidates performed exceedingly well. In fact, 96% of candidates endorsed by the California Democratic Party moved past the primary election and will be on the ballot in November – that’s an extraordinary success rate.

Our candidates' success speaks to the importance of the Democratic Party’s endorsement in the era of the “Top Two” Primary.

Below is a tally on the performance of endorsed candidates in the 2014 primary election:

Statewide candidates
Endorsed: 9 | Moving on: 9

Congressional candidates
Endorsed: 50 | Moving on: 49

State Senate candidates
Endorsed: 16 | Moving on: 15

State Assembly candidates
Endorsed: 63 | Moving on: 60

TOTAL Endorsed: 138
TOTAL Moving on: 133

Lamnin kicked the anti-union troll's sexist ass to the curb.

Sara came in first, and Ralph Fariass came in next to last. She didn't kiss ass, she kicked your punk anti union ass Mr 4%.

Pretty much all of the candidates for Mayor and City Council solicited union endorsements. Maybe not so much Salinas, since he's a cry baby and he's upset because he lost his "medical coverage" as a teacher/instructor and he blames his union for it. Good thing he has that council perk of lifetime medical benefits to fall back on--oh and a free trip to China so he can scare up business for Hayward, what a joke. Bottom line, Hayward voters have spoken--Sara was their number one choice. Sadly, Barbara Halliday was the number one choice of Hayward voters for Mayor, but maybe she will come to her senses and also move Hayward forward , instead of being a mini-Mayor Mike. I don't expect much from Barbara, but neither do the citizens who voted her into office. Time to fire Fran David for her lack of city management skills. She's done enough damage to the City and its work force. Save the City money and boot her out the door. She's an over paid buffoon.

Fran David is a good city manager. Her list of achievements for Hayward is long and lasting. The same is true for Mayor Sweeney. Together they have made Hayward a better, stronger city. All of the current City Council members are good leaders doing a difficult and often thankless job. Let's hope Mayor-Elect Barbara Halliday and the rest of the current City Council keep moving forward. Let's hope they don't listen to people who want to drag Hayward down and erase the progress that has been made. Let's hope they continue to stand for the people of Hayward who pay the bills.

11:19 everyone knows you are Ralph Farias who came in 6th out of 7 candidates. Show some class if you can?

10:31 you are right. I agree that Fran David should be fired if Hayward is to move forward, instead of backwards like we are now.

The only "healing" Hayward needs to do is from the decades of overspending on unsustainable employee pension and health benefits that threatens to bankrupt our city. Taxpayers are sick and tired of public employees griping about unappreciated they supposedly are, while swiping from our pocketbooks and constantly demanding more more more. You have a secure job, you are paid extremely well for the work you do, and you enjoy benefits that are far better than the vast majority of other workers. Enough is enough. Show some respect for the people paying your wages.

An open letter from Sara Lamnin:

Dear Hayward,

You did not elect me. The unions did. The sooner you realize this the sooner you will accept what will be. I don't work for you! My only allegiance is to the unions. Mine is not to question who or why. Mine is but to do their bidding. Period.

Please don't be too disappointed. It's not like I wasn't going to crap all over you taxpayers if elected.

In union whore solidarity!

Sara

If Hayward is such a "strong & better place" how can you explain the logic behind "The Loop" and the constant glooom & doom scenario that Mayor Sweeney & the Council constantly harp on? They say "Hayward is the next Stockton." Yeah, after they get through spending what Hayward doesn't have to spend on fancy new buildings. How about the thousands of dollars that were bank rolled to pass Measure C. Saintly Fran David contributed $2, 500.00 of her overpaid salary to hawk Measure C. Heyhayward.com has a breakdown of PAC contributions for Measure C. The Daily Review won't write an article about that. I thought Greg Jones was the worst City Manager ever, but Fran David wins that distinction. Don't be surprised if she finagles herself a raise with that Measure C money.

Taxpayers should be sick of smarmy, ineffectual politicians who get lifetime medical benefits for warming the seats on the Council dais. Some legacy! Aren't they considered city employees? They give themselves raises and we as taxpayers pay for their pension, health benefits, etc. Do they get performance evaluations? Can they get fired from their job? Nope. They can't be imposed on, but they can be impeached. How many part time jobs offer great perks, like lifetime medical benefits, all expense paid travel for "business purposes" and use of city staff/equipment to plug your business (Realty World). Ok Hayward, time to see how things really are.

Anon 10:29 Politicians get performance evaluations and can be fired at every election. If you don't like them, vote them out of office.

Mr. Farias is definitely one of the mentally unstable people in Hayward. Thank goodness we don't have too many of these. Remember, only 4% supported this extreme right wing individual.

Thank you for your very honest letter, Sara. This only confirms what most of us already knew about you.

You won, and Hayward lost.

12:31, I wish I could fire some of our local politicians, but they keep getting voted back in. No term limits and people who believe that "doing nothing" = a lasting legacy. I'd like to see City Council's performance evals, if there was such a thing. Maybe if people watched some of the council meetings, they would change their minda & move Hayward forward.Fran David gambled and lost taxpayers money when she figured the State wouldn't snatch Redevlopment funding. She's moved money from one fund to another in her own COH shell game. She's hidden her raises and caused enough problems for Hayward. She has to go!

The good news is that we already fired Salinas' ass and prevented that union stooge thug Fernandez from ever getting in!

Like the fact Sara Lamnin was the top vote getter because she deserved the honor and it showed what the voters thought of her.

Also, like the fact that Ralph Farias was in the bottom two because that showed what the voters thought of him.

The good news is that we already fired Salinas' ass and prevented that union stooge thug Fernandez from ever getting in!

If you say it twice, so will others.

I don't think city council members get lifetime medical benefits. Not sure where that notion comes from.

Third place = down and out, whores!

Sixth place = kicked into the gutter Ralph Fariass, the anti union sexist troll. We don't care about Salinas who attacked the unions until the end.

The good news our hero Sara Lamnin came in first and we kept the stooge thug Ralph Fariass from getting even 5% of the vote.

Actually some of our members voted for Barbara because she was the best of the lousy mayoral group and she made conciliatory approaches to the union.

Hayward sure has spoken. Sara Lamnin first, Rocky Fernandez third, and Ralph Farias the antiunion sexist, 6th with less than 5% of the vote. You got what you deserved Ralph.

Glad both did better than the author of the 11:36 post above who ran three times for City Council and this last time finished 6 out of 7 with less than 5% of the vote. That's what the Bay Area thinks of antiunion sexist trolls like Ralph Farias.

That says it all Ralph!

Well, good for Salinas.

Anyone who knows the dirty, corrupt, toxic and vengeful union sluts for who they are. Well, they're o.k. with me!

Well, good for Salinas.

Well, good for the voters of Hayward.

Anyone who knows the dirty, corrupt, toxic, vengeful, sexist and foulmouthed anti union Ralph Fariass for who he is; well they are O.K. with me!

Looks like imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

As usual and with no surprise whatsoever, the union whores are looking for content, so they steal from me. We all know that they have no imagination or originality. Hell, union whores are known for being plagiarizers and outright thieves.

At least they will get lessons on proper usage of grammar, spelling and syntax. Do pay attention, whores, school is now in session!

Sara Lamnin = top vote getter. Love it! Barbara Halliday Mayor is good too. Sexist above = biggest loser.

A ho is a ho and so it goes that everyone will remember the Space HO!

Lamnin still a HUGE union whore!

Lamnin got the most votes in the election because the voters like her more than you Ralph. What a sore loser as well as a sexist.

Ralph, the voters have spoken and they made Sara Lamnin their number one choice wether you like it or not. Where did you finish? Oh yeah, next to the bottom.

Sara Lamnin................................4895..22.40%
Marvin Peixoto (I).........................4779..21.87%
Rocky Fernandez.........................4226..19.34%
Julie McKillop..............................3546..16.23%

Ellen Whorbett, RocHO Fernandez, Mark Salinas--what do they all have in common?

These union sluts went down to defeat. The people have spoken!

Hayward sure has spoken. Sara Lamnin first, Rocky Fernandez third, and Ralph Farias the antiunion sexist in the above post, 6th with less than 5% of the vote. You got what you deserved Ralph.

The people have spoken!

The Space HO has a real fixation with this Ralph guy. Guess it's her way of consoling her fat ass self since all she can claim as a victory is the Lamnin bitch--who had to run like forever before folks pulled the lever for her by mistake.

Whorbett, down and out for good. Fernandez? Hey, third place still gets you down and out. An inch is as good as ten miles.

Hayward has spoken: Mayor Barb Halliday and Councilman Marv Piexoto. Two who will tell the union whores that their days of picking our pockets are over.

Since I still have some space:

All the illegals have got to be mass deported ahora mismo--that means right now! Absolutamente, bitch!

Piexoto was also supported by unions. Union supported candidates came in one, two and three. They sent the message they wanted. In the Mayors race there was no choice, except they definitely didn't want Salinas. Most of the ones I talked to, voted for Halliday, as they felt she was the most progressive and sympathetic to their plight.

In the rest of the county and state Labor and the Democratic party kicked ass and were successful in almost all their efforts. I'm sure they are very happy with a 95+% success rate. Once again anti-union and tea baggers go down in flames. Thank you Hayward, Bay Area and State of California voters. The November election will find the same high success rate and the above poster knows it.

Do you really believe the stuff that you're scribbling? Are you that brain dead? Whatever.

Nice try, but labor BEGGED for Salinas and they came up way short. The only one they wanted was Lamnin. Marv is the people's choice for saving our taxpayer $$$. If the unions want to fall in line and join us--something we seriously doubt--fine. Othewise they will get crushed again.

Came up short with mayor and second council spot. No cigar.

The only brain dead one is the antiunion poster at 8:52. Since you came in 6th with less than 5% of the vote Mr. Farias, in your 3rd try, you should know Hayward hates you by now.

Salinas was the one attacking the unions the most, up until the very end. He was targeted for defeat because Barbara reached out to them and tried to make nice. I know many union members in Hayward who voted for her as the better of the two. Maybe if you talked to more voters you might learn something.

The bitch at 12:04 am needs to lube her pussy. We can see what she is NOT doing in the wee small hours of the morning, which seems to indicate her pent-up rage.

Give it a try, bitch. You might just start to like yourself a little more!

I believe 10:05 A.M. was kicked to the curb with the huge success of the Democratic and Labor candidates in the primary. Look for more success in the general.

Labor candidates Ellen Whorbett, Rocko Fernandez, and Salinas among other losers?

:) :) :)

And I believe the antiunion Ralph Farias was the biggest loser with less than 5% of the vote. What a joke you are :) :) :) :)

Hey, gang, just got an update from Ellen, who asked me to share with all:

For those asking about my future plans, I have decided to accept an offer from Platinum Advisors in Sacramento. I'll be whoring for the unions; this is a natural fit for me since it's what I would have done had a miracle happened and I actually won the election. That was NEVER going to happen. I'm also going to accept Congressman Swalwell's generous offer to do an internship in his district office. This is about as close to congress as I will ever get. From what I understand one of my responsibilities will be baking cookies. The staffers work so very hard and deserve home-baked treats. Anyone know of any good cookbooks? I really need to bone up. That's the latest for now. I'll keep you updated from time to time via Wendi Bain.

Ellen

Ralph Fariass who? You can keep lying all you want Ralph because every time you do, it means you will turn off more Hayward voters. Run again in 2016 and you might get 2% of the vote.:) :) :)

She got more votes than you did Anon 3:46. You have been destroyed by Hayward voters.

Hayward sure has spoken. Ralph Farias the antiunion sexist in the above post, got less than 5% of the vote. You got what you deserved Ralph.

The people have spoken!

This story is about Sara Lamnin and how she came in first in the Hayward race. You can try and change the topic and keep lying if you want Mr. Farias, because every time you do, it means you will turn off more Hayward voters. Run again in 2016 and you might get 2% of the vote.

Boy, you union whores sure eat your slop. You are shitting in your pants that Whorbett lost, and you know it. That's O.K.

Sure glad the L.A. judge threw out the union whores' tenure, which is why our kids don't know up from down.

Also, get ready for ASSEMBLYWOMAN CATHARINE BAKER 2014! With your continued screw-ups, we're going to take back the state from you corrupt union whores.

By the way, don't know this Ralph, but if you don't care for him, he must be O.K.

We'll take JONES, MENDELL, and even ZERMENO in 2016. Your puppet Fernandez was thrown on the scrap heap of history. On the way to breaking the dirty, corrupt, whore unions for good!

If the story is about Lamnin, then why does the person above have this unG-dly fixation with Fernandez and Farias?

She must be one pathetic bitch.
