Applications received for County Supervisor District 2 seat
Submitted By Guy Ashley
A total of eight people submitted applications by the 5 p.m. deadline on May 15 to participate in the open public process in which the Alameda County Board of Supervisors will select a replacement for Nadia Lockyer, who resigned on April 20, 2012 as County Supervisor for District 2.
County staff reviewed the applications and determined they meet all requirements for submission. The applications are available for public view on the County's website, www.acgov.org/government/news/d2application.htm
The next step in the process takes place at a special meeting of the Board at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 when the Board will compile a shortlist of three applicants for interview in public for the appointment. County Supervisors have tentatively scheduled those interviews for a special 1:30 p.m. meeting on Tuesday, May 29. According to the tentative schedule, the Board will deliberate and make its selection on Tuesday, June 5 and swear-in the new District 2 Supervisor on Tuesday, June 12.
All the aforementioned meetings will take place in the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 5th Floor, 1221 Oak Street, Oakland.
The schedule is subject to change, depending on the number of finalists, the duration of the interviews and the Board's other business on behalf of Alameda County. The Board could call one or more special sessions to complete the appointment process.
By law, the Board has until June 19, 2012 to fill the vacancy by appointment; otherwise, the right to appoint reverts to the Governor. The Board's appointee will serve as District 2 Supervisor until the November 6, 2012 General Election, when voters will be asked to select a candidate to serve the remainder of the existing term through 2014.
District 2 includes the cities of Hayward, Newark and Union City; the northern portion of the City of Fremont; and a portion of the unincorporated community of Sunol.
