Zermeno snubs fellow Hayward councilman in endorsements

HAYWARD — City Councilman Francisco Zermeno, who is running for mayor, has endorsed Sara Lamnin and Rocky Fernandez for the two council posts up in the June election.

Fellow Hayward Councilman Marvin Peixoto is running for a second term. Zermeno is competing against Councilwoman Barbara Halliday and Councilman Mark Salinas in the mayoral race. Peixoto earlier had declined to endorse anyone for mayor, saying he could work with any of the three.

Both Lamnin and Fernandez have been endorsed by SEIU Local 1021, which is locked in a labor dispute with the city.

Rakesh Kumar Christian is the fourth candidate in the mayor’s race; he also has filed for governor.
