Nadia Lockyer goes to the beach, and so does the Mercury News

Sunday, April 22, 2012

imageIt was a big week for Nadia Lockyer. It’s also been a big week for the Mercury News’ Julia Prodis Sulek, the reporter with the ringside seat at the former Alameda County supervisor’s stunning living room resignation interview that Lockyer consented to be videotaped. It’s one of the more bizarre, even eerie, interviews involving a public official you’re apt to see, with Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise” wafting softly in the background as a frail-looking and troubled Lockyer bares her soul.

Add: Today, for the Mercury News’ Sunday edition, Prodis Sulek not only provides the backstory of the interview, but also shares loads of Nadia Lockyer’s revelations from a day that, for Lockyer’s sake, we hope was at least cathartic. At one point, the interview moved from Lockyer's home in Hayward to a cafĂ© in San Rafael, near where the ex-supe did a stint in drug rehab after the sex scandal involving the man she met in rehab in 2010 erupted.

More: Lockyer says she wants to focus on being a mother to Diego, her 8-year-old son with state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, and Saturday, on her 41st birthday, she and her son went to the beach, again with the Mercury News in tow. The photo above is by Merc photographer Dai Sugano.
