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.
