Brown Act Questions To Be Answered By Monday
In what may be the fastest response to a question in recorded history, Costa Mesa Interim Communications Director, Bill Lobdell, issued a Press Release late this afternoon on the subject of the letter sent to Mayor Gary Monahan yesterday from Californians Aware, which I covered in blog entry earlier today, HERE. This is very much like fighting a fire - get there quick, get a lot of water on it or it will get away from you.
PRESS RELEASE AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING
In his Press Release, which you can find in it's entirety, including a copy of the letter, HERE, Lobdell tells us that The City will have a response no later than Monday, May 16, 2011.
EVEN MORE PROVOCATIVE INFORMATION
An interesting part of his Press Release is the admission that most of the Working Groups have done basically nothing since formed but that the Budget and Capital Improvements Working Group - Mayor Gary Monahan and Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer - has convened 12 times since January. And, of course, that even further exacerbates the appearance of impropriety, since there are no records of those meetings, where or when they were held, etc.
HUMMING THE JEOPARDY! THEME...
We will look forward to The City's response on Monday.
