Support Costa Mesa Councilmember Katrina Foley

Costa Mesa City Councilwoman Katrina Foley has accomplished a lot in 4 years, but there is much work to be done to continue to make Costa Mesa great for families.

Katrina is one of our up and coming Democratic stars. She has weathered attacks under an ultra-conservative Republican majority on the city council and continues to bring positive change to Costa Mesa. Katrina will continue her successful efforts to protect our environment, keep our families safe by eliminating gangs in the city, and maintain a balanced and efficient budget so that she can continue to promote expansion and improvements to parks, playing fields, public facilities and roads.

Katrina needs our help this election more than ever before. Please join us in supporting the only Democrat in the Costa Mesa city council race!

    I hope this event had a large turn-out and I also hope that every registered Democratic voter living in Costa Mesa gets out and actively supports Katrina Foley.

    Katrina has a strong public service record and sincerely cares about the City of Costa Mesa and its residents.

    Katrina Foley was elected to the Costa Mesa City Council in November 2004. Katrina’s focus is on making Costa Mesa better for families. She has two school age boys – both attend public school – and is married to a local teacher.

    Katrina also serves her community as Chair of the Coast Community College Citizens Oversight Committee, and as a Trustee for the Vector Control Board. Prior to her election, she served on the city’s Planning Commission for more than five years, as a member of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District Measure A Oversight Committee, and the Costa Mesa Human Relations Committee.

    Katrina also volunteers her time on several non-profit boards. She is a Director for the Costa Mesa Athletic Foundation. She has also served as a Director for four countywide non-profit boards: the Girl Scouts, the Orange County Women Lawyers Association, the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association, and Orange County HeadStart. Katrina is a member of the Hispanic and Celtic Bar Associations, and volunteers her time for numerous civic organizations including the Sonora Elementary School PTA, where she is an officer.

    Running against Katrina is Jim Righeimer, a third-tier developer who seems to be gearing up for another run at the Assembly, with the Costa Mesa City Council as his launching platform.

    Righeimer moved to Costa Mesa two years ago from Fountain Valley, and immediately got an appointment to the planning commission and a column in the Daily Pilot.

    He’s a big wheel in movement conservative Republican politics, a frothing blowhard, who will push more wedge issues into Costa Mesa politics, bash immigrants, and spend all his time making noise to bolster his chances in a Republican primary.

    Dana Rohrabacher still carries $15,000 in loans to Righeimer’s failed 2008 Assembly campaign on his FEC statements, although Riggo closed his own campaign accounts in 2002. I hope someone in the press asks him about that some time. In the last campagin, it turned out that he had been a deadbeat on dues to his homeowners’ association, and it looks like his failute to pay his debts may be endemic.
