“Battling addiction and the humiliation of a highly publicized altercation in a Newark hotel room with a former lover she met in a rehab program, Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer abruptly resigned Friday,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
You might recall that Nadia Lockyer used to be a player in the Democratic Party of Orange County, back when her name was Nadia Maria Davis. According to a bio, she “was a member of Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’s legal team and protected the voting rights of new citizens against unfounded accusations. She ran Honorable Lou Correa’s fundraising in his first bid for State Assembly.” Correa lost that race.
She also was elected to the Santa Ana Unified School District’s Board of Education, in 1998. I ran against her in fact. She won that race but then lost the seat in 2002. She had an awful car accident before that last election. Reportedly the driver in that accident was former Assemblyman Marco Firebaugh, who later died of liver disease. Her bio states that she broke 22 bones and punctured her lung in that accident. A columnist at the East Bay Citizen reported during her supervisorial campaign in 2010 that some of her friends say she was never the same after that accident.
