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).
The results of a performance audit of the County Human Resources Department (HRD) were released and they aren’t pretty to say the least. The 50 findings and recommendations illustrate a picture of a department where executive managers were sneaking through raises and promotions while no one was watching.
Early Saturday morning, vandals threw a brick through the front door window of Costa Mesa Mayor Gary Monahan’s bar Skosh Monahan’s. According to Monahan as quoted in press reports, a note was attached to the brick that was allegedly critical of the Mayor and his plans to lay off more than 200 city workers and outsource the services they perform.
