Costa Mesa Forum Replay Schedules
Since it's kind of a slow week here in Costa Mesa I thought it might be a good time to provide you with opportunities to view, or re-view, the videos from the first two Costa Mesa City Council Candidate Forums. They are provided to you by our friends at CMTV, Dane Bora and Brad Long, on both streaming video and programmed into the play lists on CMTV - Channel 24 on Time Warner Cable and Channel 99 on ATT U-verse.
MESA VERDE COMMUNITY, INC.
The first forum, hosted by Mesa Verde Community, Inc., and moderated by their president, Darnell Wyrick, was held on August 29th. You can view it on streaming video HERE or watch it on television on the schedule shown below.
FEET TO THE FIRE
The second forum, the Feet To The Fire Forum, moderated by the ever-vivacious Barbara Venezia, was held on September 5th and can be viewed on streaming video HERE or on television on the schedule shown below. You also might be interested in Barbara's assessment of the candidates at her event, HERE.
NEXT - COSTA MESA UNITED FORUM
The next forum will be held on Thursday, September 20th, also at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Avenue (Lions Park) and is hosted by Costa Mesa United. Their program begins with a "meet and greet" opportunity from 6-7 and the actual program runs from 7-9. The emphasis will be on Academics, Athletics and Activities and will be moderated by their president, Gordon Bowley. Originally they expected to have council candidates as well as candidates for school board seats. That fell apart when the school board candidates had no opposition. So, only council candidates will be involved in this one. I'll remind you about it again early next week.
THE CHARTER DEBATE
The final two events in the run to the election will be the Feet To The Fire debate of Jim Righeimer's Charter featuring its sperm donor, Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer, versus former City Council member and current Newport Mesa Unified School District Trustee Katrina Foley. That will be held at the Neighborhood Community Center on October 15th beginning at 6:30 and should be a lively event.
EASTSIDE NEIGHBORS GROUP
The final forum will be hosted by the Eastside Costa Mesa Neighbors Group and will be held at the same venue on October 18th, also beginning at 6:30. In the last election cycle their event was the best, so we have high expectations this time around.
