Costa Mesa City Council Candidates 2014

Costa Mesa City Council Candidates 2014

The candidates are in home stretch of the Costa Mesa City Council race, eight candidates are on the ballot, but only two will emerge as winners of the two seats available. As we’ve reported in the past, Costa Mesans for Responsible Government, grass-roots, nonpartisan group, endorsed Katrina Foley and Jay Humphrey for the Costa Mesa City Council race back in July of 2014.  The group knew that both Foley and Humphrey were former council members and very strong leaders with proven ability to bring considerable experience to city government.  Both want to bring smart, balanced and sustainable development back, a subject that hits home with thousands of Costa Mesa residents. Both Foley and Humphrey oppose the current City Council majority and the article title “How Jim Righeimer’s Legal Wars are Draining Costa Mesa Dry” by Gericault gives voters a clear look into why they oppose the current majority.

From the article: “We residents, are constantly reminded that we can’t have nice things like other cities do.  We can’t have a police force or fire stations with working air conditioners, because we have an “unfunded pension liability.”  But here, let’s spend $650K for lights in a dawn-to-dusk park, close to a million on a 3-day party (which nobody attended) and $400K for a recently renovated median (in front of Righeimers’ house, which he just decided they needed to re-do again), and that’s just a sampling of the ludicrous spending habits.”

Costa Mesa has lost in public safety services from just one department. All those little red X’s represent an estimated $4 million a year savings for employment costs to the city.

This graphic shows that Costa Mesa has lost in public safety services from just one department — the Police Department. All those little red X’s represent an estimated $4 million a year savings for employment costs to the city, but they also mean a HUGE loss of Police Officers protecting residents and businesses in Costa Mesa.  This has to stop!

Also from the article: “So, when the above illustration recently ran in the local Daily Pilot (well, it was actually a paid ad, the paper didn’t just “run” it), I was a little shocked to see a visual of exactly how much Costa Mesa has lost in public safety services from just one department.  All those little red X’s represent an estimated $4 million a year savings for employment costs to the city.  But no other city in the county, when blessed with increasing revenues and rising property values, has taken the seriously monstrous steps Costa Mesa has, led by Jim Righeimer.”
