The candidate – executive director of the Alameda County Family Justice Center in Oakland, a Hayward resident, and wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer – is competing with former state Sen. Liz Figueroa, D-Sunol; Hayward City Councilman Kevin Dowling; and perhaps some other local officials for the District 2 Supervisor’s seat now held by Gail Steele, who’s retiring next year. District 2 encompasses parts of Hayward, Newark, Union City, Fremont, and Sunol; the election will be in June.
Torres, in Lockyer’s news release, said he’s “so proud” to support her.
“I have had the pleasure of knowing her ever since she was a young person who was intent on serving her community and making a difference,” he said. “Over the years, Nadia has proven herself as a leader who has consistently fought to empower her community, and Alameda County will greatly benefit from her dedication, hard work, and enthusiasm.”
Lockyer, who posted an early fundraising lead in August, said she’s “deeply honored” to have Torres’ support.
