East Bay love trend continues with Haggerty wedding

Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty

Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty

Wedded bliss, or the prospect thereof, is no longer just a Contra Costa trend.

Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty of Dublin married Rhonda Gibbons on Feb. 14 in Jack London Square in Oakland. Alameda County Supervisor Keith Carson presided.

For a while, we thought it was something in the water in Contra Costa County.

In the past few months, Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Alamo; Assemblyman Tom Torlakson, D-Antioch; and California GOP Vice Chairman Tom Del Beccaro of Lafayette, each announced their engagements to their respective partners. (No, not to each other.)

According to a press release from Haggerty’s office, he and his bride met at a sports event in Livermore in which both of their sons were playing. This is nearly a Brady Bunch union: Haggerty has three children and Gibbons has two.

The newlyweds are spending their honeymoon in Hawaii.

Haggerty has served on the five-member Board of Supervisors for twelve years and was re-elected to a fourth four-year term in 2008. He represents the cities of Fremont, Livermore, Pleasanton, the eastern-most portion of Dublin and unincorporated east Alameda County on Board of Supervisors.
