     HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) - The wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer says she will resign from Alameda County's Board of Supervisors following a string of bizarre public incidents she has blamed on her own chemical dependency.

      Nadia Lockyer on Friday told reporters of her plan to send a resignation letter to her colleagues and constituents, saying she wants to focus on raising her 8-year-old child.

      The 40-year-old Nadia Lockyer's public troubles began in February, when she claimed she was assaulted by an ex-boyfriend in a Newark hotel room.

      Most recently, an e-mail sent from her account to a Bay Area News Group reporter claimed her husband had given her drugs. Bill Lockyer's office denied those allegations.

      Nadia Lockyer's resignation letter said being a mother is her most important role.
