Repair Costa Mesa Releases New Ad

COSTA MESA — Repair Costa Mesa released a new ad yesterday, just in time for the NBA finals. As the owner of a sports bar, Mayor Gary Monahan has got to be pissed.

The ad targets the Costa Mesa City Council’s four errrant boys, Righeimer, Mensinger, Bever and Monahan for their failure to address wasteful spending before laying off most of the City’s non-safety workforce. In an email to supporters Repair Costa Mesa wrote:

When the City Council laid off nearly half of the city’s employees, they claimed we were out of money, but their budget still includes a $7 million re-modeling plan for City Hall, including $2 million for carpeting and paint.  They’ve spent thousands on no bid contracts, and even bought special badges for themselves.  The Council should cancel the layoffs, and cut their wasteful spending instead.

Ouch! You can find out more about the Costa Mesa City Council’s wasteful ways at Costa Mesa Waste Watchers.

    Interesting. I was under the impression that no Costa Mesa have been laid off – that they were just given 6 months notice that they might be laid off.

    Has something changed?

      The notices told the workers that they would be laid off in 6 months.

    I can assure either one of you guys hiding behind your incognito posts that if you got a 6 month notice you would hopefully be able to grasp that you have just been fired. Is that you Mensinger?? Monahan??

    Geez Kathy, I just asked a question. But I guess you’re confirming the e-mail to the Repair CM supporters contained mis-information?

    There have been no lay-offs, right?

    Another question. I heard the union has refused to negotiate with the City to discuss other possible alternatives. Is that correct?
