One week before the scheduled court hearing regarding the Costa Mesa layoff plans, the Orange County Employees Association on Tuesday renewed their offer to negotiate to avoid the outsourcing of City services which would force layoffs of more than 100 dedicated City Workers.
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).
It seems that in the past week, the Los Angeles Times has finally rediscovered Orange County. In particular, Costa Mesa and the boiling controversy created by extreamist in the GOP who are hell-bent on destroying public sector employees, their benefits, and their ability to collectively advocate and bargin through their unions.
