This is one of those where I have to count to 10 and repeat “I shall not editorialize, I shall not editorialize” before writing.
Scott Haggerty, who represents most of Fremont on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, is pushing to name the Bay Trail, which goes through the Tri-City area, after State Treasuer Bill Lockyer, whose wife, Nadia, represents the rest of Fremont on the board.
Lockyer apparently authored legislation to make the trail possible. He also donated millions to his wife’s successful campaign last year.
Richmond has come out against the name change. Fremont, to my knowledge, hasn’t considered it.
