On the local political scene, Castro Valley’s Karla Goodbody has left the employ of Assemblyman Alberto Torrico, D-Fremont, and gone to work as senior congressional aide for Congresswoman Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, whose district includes some of the greater Hayward area’s unincorporated communities.
And, if Friday night television isn’t your thing, check out the politicos April 18 at the Hayward Demos Democratic Club’s candidates’ forum. The 7 p.m. meeting will be at Westminster Hills Presbyterian Church, 27287 Patrick Ave., in Hayward.
Candidates on the June 3 primary ballot have been invited.
Invitees include Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi, D-Hayward, and Jason Teramoto, who’s challenging Hayashi for the 18th Assembly District Democratic nomination.
Hayashi’s husband, Dennis, also is on the guest list, along with Phil Daly, Victoria Kolakowski and Dennis Reid, all of whom are vying for an Alameda County Superior Court judicial seat.
Torrico and Congressman Pete Stark, D-Fremont, both of whom are unopposed in their party’s June primary, also have been asked to speak.
Club members will endorse candidates in the respective races, and also consider Measure I, the $205 million Hayward School District bond measure on the June ballot.
