Deception On The March In Mesa North
HEAR THE DRUMS?
The drumbeat of deception continues from the north part of town. As will almost certainly be the same with every entry, The Mesa North Mouth continues to tout his chosen slate of candidates and goes to great lengths to denigrate Katrina Foley and the other candidates running against his preferences.
ACTIONS AND WORDS
Those of us who have watched him in action and have read his tripe over the years find his current attacks to be absolutely no surprise. For years he has tried, with some success, to manipulate council candidates and members to make life miserable for the Latinos in our community. His hatred of anyone not white is obvious and is reflected by numerous essays he writes on far, far right wing web sites, like the New Nation News. If you doubt my characterization, click HERE and go the link to his most recent essay entitled, "Jump Out Of The Melting Pot Or Die".
This guy knows no bounds when it comes to fabricating falsehoods and flat-out lying about candidates that don't meet his requirements. It's a sad commentary on this city that more than a few folks in our town buy into his crap and assume forcing Latinos from our city will solve all our problems. What a crock!
DO YOUR OWN ANALYSIS
So, dear neighbors, start paying attention to what's actually happening in our city. Don't take my word for it, and for sure don't take his. Do you own investigation and analysis. Make up your own minds.
"PASSIVE PARKS" TO BE DISCUSSED
Tomorrow night at the City Council meeting our elected leaders will address the issue of turning all but a couple of our nearly 30 public parks into "passive parks" - places where groups of children will be forbidden to play games. This draconian recommendation is the direct result of The Mouth From Mesa North fabricating lies about Paularino Park to keep Latino men from the apartments across the street from kicking a soccer ball around after work. He painted the specter of marauding "soccer gangs", terrorizing the local residents (like across the street isn't "local") - none of which was verified and validated. It's the perfect example of a very smart guy yapping into the ears of some latent bigots who take his word as gospel.
EASTSIDERS TO HOLD FORUM
On a more positive note, at least two more candidate forums are in the works, with two more rumored. On Thursday, October 9th, the fledgling Eastside CM Neighbors Group is sponsoring a candidate forum at the Neighborhood Community Center from 6-9 p.m. More information to follow when plans are solidified.
PILOT AND CHAMBER TO HOST FORUM
Then, the following week, the Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce and The Daily Pilot will host a candidate forum at the City Council Chambers at City Hall. This event will be televised live and then shown on delayed tape, too, until the election on November 4th. I'm not sure of the starting time, but will advise you when I know.
WATCH, HEAR, ASSESS
Take advantage of these opportunities to watch, hear and assess the future leaders of our city. Don't listen to the spin put on the comments - hear them for yourselves. Make an informed decision when you enter the voting booth.
