Tuesday was a bad day for the Costa Mesa City Council’s “Gang of Four.” In terms that Pop Warner booster and Councilman Stephen Mensinger might better understand, they fumbled on fourth down at the five-yard line.
Last night the Costa Mesa City Council voted to place Righeimer’s Folly, a Charter Initiative to grant unrestrained power to the current Council majority, on the ballot in June. Immediately following the council meeting, the opposition launched its campaign to fight back for the residents of Costa Mesa.
Costa Mesa resident Tom Egan told the Council, “Giving you the power in this charter would be like giving a teenager the keys to the liquor cabinet and the keys to the car at the same time. You people without any grown up supervisor scares me.”
