Report: Mary Hayashi seeking endorsements for Nadia Lockyer’s old job

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Looks like Assemblywoman and Neiman Marcus shoplifter Mary Hayashi is getting close to entering the race for Alameda County Supervisor in November. Steven Tavares at East Bay Citizen cites sources as saying Hayashi, who's termed out this year, has been calling local politicians to try and line up endorsements for the seat vacated by drug-and-sex-scandal-plagued former supe Nadia Lockyer. Former Union City councilman Richard Valle, Lockyer’s appointed interim replacement who plans to be on the ballot, said last week that Hayashi intends to run.

Add: The disgraced Castro Valley Democrat hasn’t talked to the press since her felony arrest last October. She pleaded no contest to stealing more than $2,400 worth of merchandise from Neiman Marcus’ Union Square store, after San Francisco superior court judge Gerardo Sandoval reduced the crime to a misdemeanor (which allowed her to stay in office). She's on three years probation. Plus she’s banned from the store.
