So now that, by their own standards, the Council majority has approved an austerity budget that reduces police coverage to risky levels according to the departed Interim Chief it seems appropriate that the Council rescind their unwarranted layoff notices issued in March.
Well, as Chris posted earlier, the drama in Costa Mesa is getting even more dramatic following the alleged brick throwing incident, and the alleged vandalism of Steve Mensinger’s home. With both of these incidents no suspects have been identified, and in Mensinger’s case we can’t be sure that it even occurred. I have serious doubts about their stories given all…
When I heard that Costa Mesa City Councilman Stephen Mensinger had claimed on Facebook that his vehicle had been vandalized I asked myself; “Haven’t we been down this road already?” Just as with the apparent vandalism of Leprechaun Mayor Gary Monahan’s bar (still waiting for the release of the so called “threatening note” that was tied to the brick that smashed through the window).
As if there were any doubt that the city council have not been listening to what the citizens of our city have been telling them week after week, the latest memo from Tom Hatch(et) should remove any notion that they have one shred of interest in what the city wants.
