The boys will be back with a vengeance in Costa Mesa tonight. The Righeimer Gang has called a Special City Council Meeting for tonight to consider calling a separate city election for the Charter Initiative, piggy-backing on the June Primary Election but managing the election themselves.
When it comes to CEO Tom Hatch and the good old boys on the Costa Mesa City Council, their callousness is demonstrated with unbridled enthusiasm. As many city workers begin to receive holiday greeting cards in their mail boxes over the weekend they found a letter from CEO Tom Hatch just in time for the holidays.
Eight months ago today the City of Costa Mesa issued layoff notices to almost half their employees in support of the crazy agenda of Council members Righeimer and Mensinger.

In looking at tonight’s agenda for the Costa Mesa City Council, I find myself wondering if the Four Boys of the Council have been hanging out in secret a bit too much at Monahan’s Pub. In spite of the fact that they have been told by a judge that they cannot contract out to private contractors any jobs currently held by public employees they are still spending the time of City staff, high priced consultants, and the City Council, on the fools errand of outsourcing before determining feasibility, or if it will actually save any money.
