Mary Hayashi’s road to political rehabilitation

Thursday, May 17, 2012

At the risk of evoking George Orwell unnecessarily, Assemblywoman and Nieman Marcus shoplifter Mary Hayashi (D-Castro Valley) is apparently hanging on to her chairmanship of the Assembly Business, Professions, and Consumer Protection Committee. You read that right. Plus, Speaker John Perez has just named her among 12 assembly members to a special committee to explore Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed overhaul of the executive branch.

Add: So it appears Hayashi’s attempt at political rehab is underway. She’s termed out in December. Steven Tavares at East Bay Citizen, noting that she fished to be appointed as fallen Alameda County supervisor Nadia Lockyer’s interim replacement, says prospective players for that seat fear that Hayashi will use her $800,000 campaign war chest to try and win it in November.
