ALCO SUPERVISOR DISTRICT 2 |Alameda County Supervisor Richard Valle can unpacked his bags. The job is his to keep for the next two years. After what had appeared to be a lackluster performance beset with numerous missed opportunities to dismantle his main competitor, Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi, Valle cruised to victory Tuesday night.

The biggest surprise, however, was not Valle’s win, but the performance of Mark Green, who finished a strong second while easily outdistancing Hayashi, the favorite by some to win the seat vacated last April by Nadia Lockyer.

Valle won’t be able to rest long. The District 2 special election only covers the last two years of Lockyer’s first term ending in 2014.
