"Tis The Season...
HERE WE GO...
Well, this is how it begins, folks.
KRUPP TAKES ON MCCARTHY
Announced Costa Mesa City Council candidate Marshall Krupp today sent a letter to the Newport Mesa Unified School District with a copy to the California Fair Political Practices Committee, pointing out what he felt was a violation of School District and State rules governing the use of "school resources" for political purposes.
USE OF ESTANCIA CHEER SQUAD
It seems that Krupp takes exception to the participation of the Estancia High School Cheer Squad at a recent fund-raiser for Planning Commission Chairman Colin McCarthy's run for City Council this fall. In his three-page communication he quotes chapter and verse from regulations he feels may have been violated, including the sections that define the penalties - including jail time - for such offenses. You can read his letter HERE.
And we have not even reached the official filing date yet! This is going to be a long, hot summer on the campaign trail, with McCarthy, Steve Mensinger and Gary Monahan apparently running as part of a slate supported - emotionally, philosophically and financially - by the Orange County Republican Party in their quest to completely take over Costa Mesa and the special districts that serve it. We don't know all the names of those opposing them, but Krupp apparently is one of them.
So, dear readers, it's time to strap yourselves in, make sure your crap-o-meter is in good working order and listen to and read what the candidates have to say. It's going to be brutal!
