Costa Mesa: Final Council Vote Tonight on Righeimer Charter Initiative


Tonight is the last chance that the residents of Costa Mesa will have to speak out on the topic of Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer’s city charter initiative before the Council votes to place it on the ballot again.

There is little, if any, doubt that the council majority led by Righeimer will continue their foolish pursuit of unlimited political power. But that is not a reason for people to speak out against granting unlimited political power to a group of insane, right-wing, zealots who are hell-bent on destroying the checks and balances that provide for a vibrant and healthy community.

The council majority has repeatedly demonstrated their disdain towards any one who disagrees with their mission, driven by the outside political interests of the Orange County, California, and National Republican Party leadership.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm at the Costa Mesa City Hall. But get there early, because the seats are going to fill up fast.

Show up, speak out, and support the dedicated staff of your city. Just because Righeimer and his allies (Monahan, Mensinger, and Bever) wont bother to listen, your voices should still be raised.

    Will be there to support the Charter and the vote of the residents to govern themselves. In the final analysis, does our City want to be run into the ground by Sacramento any further? No. Time for cities to take control of their finances and break away from the mess in our Capital. We will see more OC cities move to Charters. That, or become Stanton. Choice seems simple.

    Phil, you don’t know what you’re talking about. San Bernadino is thinking about hetting away from their Charter, Redding has dumped their move to a Charter,….and three out of the four recent CA. cities to declare bankruptcies are Charter cities.
    You want a Charter in Costa Mesa that takes AWAY the protections built-in under General Law. The anti corruption statutes against cronyism and contracts will be *poof* GONE. Then you give the Developers Righeimer and Mensinger carte blanc to start spending however , to whomever, with no accountability Giving this “gang that can’t shoot straight” that much trust and power isn’t just wrong it’s asinine. The partisan Tea Party supporters of this council are a menace.

    Wonder what’s driving Jim Righeimer’s Charter effort?
