An Odd Tag Team Match On Friday
In what may be the most under-publicized event of its kind in recent memory, the League of Women Voters of Orange County will host a panel discussion this Friday at noon on the subject of Costa Mesa's restructuring. According to the article in the Daily Pilot this morning, HERE, Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer and Councilman Steve Mensinger will face the General Manager of the Orange County Employee's Association, Nick Berardino and their Public Relations representative, Jennifer Muir.
NO BOXING GLOVES PROVIDED
When I called to make my reservation I asked if the quartet would be fitted with boxing gloves, but was assured this would be a nice, civil discussion. Marquis of Queensberry rules will not apply. OK - if they say so.
RUMBLE AT COCO'S
Even more fun is the venue - Coco's Restaurant at Fashion Island, Newport Beach. How can I say this kindly... it's a place that caters to me - a geezer. I doubt very seriously we'll see many tattoos or body piercings on Friday and my silver hair will fit right in with most of the probable attendees.
I'm planning to attend and will report back later. I'm going to have the Newport Beach Police Department telephone number on speed dial, just in case this does turn out to be a slug fest. I'm grateful to the fine, concerned folks at the League of Women Voters of Orange County for holding this event.
