Bill Lockyer Files for Divorce From Nadia

The state treasurer’s action comes three months after wife Nadia Lockyer resigned from the Alameda County Board of Supervisors following a sex and drug scandal.

State Treasurer Bill Lockyer is divorcing wife Nadia Lockyer, the former Alameda County District 2 supervisor who after months of a .

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Bill Lockyer, 71, filed for divorce on Friday citing irreconcilable differences with Nadia Lockyer, 41, his wife of nine years. The state treasurer also wants custody of the couple’s 8-year-old son, the newspaper reports.

The action comes three months after Nadia Lockyer resigned from public office to focus on recovery from a drug addiction and taking care of their son.

She told the Chronicle that she and Bill Lockyer had agreed to divorce earlier but that an argument last week caused him to act faster than planned.

"My husband and I have differed on how to protect the family," Nadia Lockyer told the Chronicle. "I feel he has abandoned me and my child and it's created an unsafe circumstance."

Nadia Lockyer also told the media outlet that she crashed her car last Friday outside of their Hayward home because she thought someone was following her. She ran into a pole while trying to call Bill Lockyer to tell him she was being followed, she told a Chronicle reporter.

The shamed former supervisor’s drama began to unfold in February when she was allegedly assaulted by a former lover at a Newark motel. Less than two weeks later, she announced that she had checked herself into rehab for "chemical dependency and chronic pain" stemming from a past car accident as well as for the injuries she said she suffered in the attack. Her alleged assailant was never charged for the assault.

In May, video clips of Nadia Lockyer masturbating surfaced online but were taken down shortly after.

On Monday, Nadia Lockyer told the Chronicle that she is still receiving treatment for her addiction and that she’s been sober for 200 days.

“Being sober really opens your eyes,” she said.

If she is that sober, then maybe Alameda County should take her off Medical Disability and stop paying her!

She needs to check into " Betty Ford" for a year or two !

I feel sorry for their son.

From what I understand, Bill Lockyer is a genuinely decent guy. Nadia is an extremely troubled woman. They connected for all the wrong reasons. At this point the child they brought into the world should be the number one priority for both. Whether Nadia is capable of making the right decision for her son is the $64,000 dollar question..

Oh every "decent guy" marries a woman 40 years his junior and is a rescuer/enabler. Billy needs to get into CODA (CoDependants Anonymous). At his age he should know better. We really need to be rid of so called public servants who have no moral compass. Seize your power and VOTE!

Gary, Now Mary Hayashi wants your vote for Supervisor. You want a moral compass, right? Well, on Friday, July 13th, Mary turned in her Candidate Intention Statement to the Alameda County Registrar of Voters office for the position of Supervisor District 2. She also opened up a "Hayashi for Supervisor 2012" official campaign finance committee. Both filed with the Registrar of Voters office. So there you go Gary, "Seize your power and VOTE". Of course, if you don't find Mary filling your definition of a candidate who has a "moral compass", you will have a couple other choices. Mark Green and Richard Valle are also running. Looks to be quite the lively race. If you live in Hayward or Union City, you are in Supervisor District 2, which was Nadia's seat.

Like I said they connected for "all the wrong reasons".. That refers to BOTH of them..
Gary Allsebrook July 19, 2012 at 10:28 AM
I don't live in district 2 but Mary shouldn't be running for office. I didn't realize that convicted felons could even vote, let alone run for office. Of course she probably pled it down to a misdemeanor.
Zinn July 19, 2012 at 04:13 PM
I don't think Hayashi has a snowballs chance to be re elected..

Yes Gary, Hayashi was arrested for felony grand theft shoplifting, but took a plea deal. You see, when she was arrested last October it was the first time she was ever caught shoplifting, even though according to news reports, the store security was put on the alert that day, due to a sales clerk recognizing her as matching the description of a individual who had been in the store a week or so earlier when a dress had gone missing. So store security followed her closely, then arrested her outside with the clothing valued at $2,450 Instead of going to court to contest the felony arrest, Hayashi's attourney worked out a plea deal, getting the felony crime reduced to a misdemeanor, and agreeing to a small fine along with 3 years probation. She is now, only 7 months into her 3 year sentence. Because of the plea deal, in the eyes of the law, she is not a convicted felon and thus is legally not prohibited from running for office. You see, she is a law maker, not a law enforcer like a police officer or deputy sheriff. Were she one of those public officers, she would have lost her job and would not now be hired by any law enforcement agency in Alameda County. But as I said, she only makes the laws. Its up to the public to say if they want to hire her for this important new position, replacing Nadia Lockyer as Supervisor District 2

Early June 2012 I heard rumors that Mary Hayashi held a fund raising party at her Hayward home. I sent an email to her District Manager and asked him if Mary was running for D2 supervisor in Alameda County. Her manager, Christopher did not respond to my email. Beginning to sound like the rumors may have been true.
