Jana Ransom Leaving Costa Mesa

Some sad news floated my way today...

JANA HEADING TO IRVINE
Costa Mesa's outstanding Recreation Manager, Jana Ransom, is leaving her job in a couple weeks for a similar position with the City of Irvine. Jana's last day will be August 12th and she begins with Irvine the following Monday.

CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL
This is a big loss for our city. Jana has been a very effective manager and a consummate professional in her eight years with Costa Mesa. The past few years have been difficult - her organization experienced a 30% budget cut over the past couple years due to the dire financial condition we find ourselves in these days.

OUR LOSS - AGRANVILLE'S GAIN
Her new job in Irvine, while similar in scope to her current assignment, has a tremendous upside. Irvine - Agranville, as I refer to it - is more than double the size of Costa Mesa and has on the horizon the development of The Great Park - a recreational professional's dream assignment.

SENIORS WILL ESPECIALLY MISS HER
Many folks will miss Jana, including the folks at the Senior Center, where she has been the city liaison.

GOOD-BYE AND GOOD LUCK, JANA
We here at A Bubbling Cauldron wish her all the best in her new gig.

Watching Ms. Ransom on telecasts as she ably made her presentations or answered questions, I always felt that she handled her responsibilities well.

Good luck in Irvine Ms. Ransom. Sorry to hear that you are leaving our fair city. Thanks for a job well done.

Jana will leave a huge void for this City. She was a beacon of hope for the supporters of Recreation in CM. With such lack of regard shown by the Council for Parks and Rec, Jana had a tough future. She will do wonders in Irvine, where they care about kids.

Thanks Jana for all you did.

She worked with the committee that put together the Costa Mesa Community Run that benefits schools in Costa Mesa. She really knew how to get things done on the committee's behalf.

She will be missed!
