Eric Bever Is An Incompetent Buffoon
Late this Friday afternoon Mona Shadia wrote an article in the Daily Pilot entitled, "Costa Mesa Councilman Withdraws Support For City Proposal to Purchase OC Fairgrounds". You can read the entire text HERE. She followed it up with another article later this evening, "Bever out of Fair Pursuit", HERE, which includes the complete text of Bever's letter.
HE CHANGED HIS MIND?
In a nutshell, Councilman Eric Bever has apparently had second thoughts about supporting the City's proposal as presented to representatives of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday by City Manager Allan Roeder, Councilwoman Katrina Foley and Councilman Gary Monahan despite the fact that the document carried his signature along with those of all other members of the city council.
HIS LOW WATER MARK
Of all the stupid, boneheaded things Bever has done since he was elected to the city council, this one is his low water mark. His explanations as provided in the article in the Daily Pilot are lame and completely insufficient for such an action.
ABSENCE, DISTRACTION, BOREDOM
In recent months Bever has been absent from the council meetings frequently and when he's been in attendance seemed distracted and bored - his participation has been lackluster, to be generous. More often than not his "contribution" to the debate of issues was prefaced by one of his many, many lame attempts at humor. Seldom did he contribute anything of substance to the discussions and frequently went into a pouty funk when his ideas were rejected.
BEVER'S CONTRIBUTIONS ALMOST NON-EXISTENT
On the subject of the purchase of the Fairgrounds, Bever's public pronouncements in open session were almost non-existent. For him to now withdraw his support for the proposal by the City to purchase the Fairgrounds after having been a signatory to the agreement this week clearly demonstrates that he is an incompetent, irresponsible, obtuse knucklehead and completely unworthy of the office he holds.
WHAT CAUSED HIM TO CHANGE HIS MIND?
The question of the day is, what caused Eric Bever to change his mind? What new information has come to light that made him take such an overt, peculiar step? Is it possible that someone with a political objective has swayed him? Might that person be one who feels slighted in the "process" and is trying to do his best to "blow up" the deal? These are questions worth asking, in my opinion.
IT'S TIME TO RECALL BEVER
It makes me cringe when I think of him on the city council for another two and a half years, running roughshod with the Brown Act and providing capricious, immature leadership to our city. It may be time to mount a recall effort and get Bever off the dais before he does even more serious damage to our city.
