Last Chance For Candidate Viewing Before Election

TWO FORUMS AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING
With the final televised City Council Candidate Forum behind us and two non-televised events ahead over the next couple weeks I thought I'd provide (with the permission of CMTV) the schedule of replays on Costa Mesa Television (CMTV) Channel 24 on Time Warner Cable for the events "in the can".

BE AN INFORMED VOTER
I think each voter serious about the future of our city should take advantage of this opportunity to see your candidates respond to important issues. So far, more than 300 of your neighbors have seen the three forums conducted to date in person. You can join them by viewing the replays to become informed about the candidates.

City Council Candidate Forum - 10/9/08
Hosted by Eastside Costa Mesa Neighbors, Inc.

of Commerce, Churm Media and the

CRAMMING BEFORE THE ELECTION
Additionally, beginning on Monday, November 3rd, all three of the televised forums will be available for viewing. They will be televised on Monday the 3rd and Tuesday, the 4th sequentially.

STREAMING VIDEO AVAILABLE, TOO
Additionally, all of those events may be viewed at your convenience on streaming video on via the City of Costa Mesa web site. This link, HERE, will take you to the city web site, then just click on Archived Videos under the "Costa Mesa TV" button, then select the forum of your choice for viewing. You will need a high speed internet connection - DSL or Cable - to view these items.

WATCH AND EDUCATE YOURSELVES - THEN CHOOSE.
I think, as you watch these presentations, you'll agree with me that we have several solid candidates from which to choose on Tuesday. As you know, my votes have gone to Katrina Foley, Bill Sneen and Jim Righeimer for all the reasons I've previously stated on this blog, HERE, and in the Daily Pilot, HERE. Those are my choices... it's up to you to make your own.

MORE REASONS TO REJECT MONAHAN AND BEVER
I think recent events make it even easier to NOT vote for Eric Bever and Gary Monahan now. Bever, in an amazing show of arrogance, failed to show up for the Daily Pilot interviews and the last two candidate forums. Monahan has this new dark cloud of suspicion regarding a "campaign donation/consulting fee" from Surat Singh hanging over his head. As I write this he has still not satisfactorily explained this issue. It's all a matter of trust, isn't it?

I certainly agree with your opinion regarding the two problem candidates. I just can't understand the arrogance and dis-respect to the citizens of Costa Mesa. I hope and feel they have a big surprise around the corner.The only hope is the candidates might think, everyone might attach these issues to last minute smear tactics. dont think so"

Bill, finally something about which we agree! I really do hate politics... it sometimes brings out the worst of people. Power does that, I guess. Please email me at the address on the blog profile.
