They're Off And Running!
Well, the campaign season is officially in full swing now because the first candidate forum has been scheduled for this summer.
MESA VERDE FIRST
Our friends at Mesa Verde Inc. have firmed up a date and place for their candidate forum - as usual, they are the first.
According to their organizers, the event will be held on August 18th at the Mesa Verde United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 1701 Baker Street in Costa Mesa. According to my sources, the "schmoozing" will begin at 5:30 and the actual forum starts at 6:30.
USUALLY THE BEST
It's been my experience that this forum is usually the best of the bunch because the candidates are all fresh, well-scrubbed and coiffed and eager to answer questions. And, our friends from Mesa Verde have good snacks.
More about this forum and others as I hear about them in the weeks to come.
PARKS & REC. MEETING WEDNESDAY
It's a fairly slow week in our town. Wednesday evening Chairman Mike Brumbaugh will lead the Parks and Recreation Commission in their only summer meeting at 6:00 in the council chambers. This meeting may set an all time record for brevity unless tree removal requests drag on and on.
