Meet The Mayor Tonight

TOWER ON 19TH
Just a reminder for you... Tonight you can "Meet The Mayor" at the latest of Costa Mesa Mayor Jim Righeimer's monthly gatherings at different venues around town.  Tonight your chance to meet and chat with the mayor is at the Tower on 19th (formerly Bethel Towers), 678 West 19th Street from 6-7:30 p.m.

BUDGET
This is a great opportunity for you to ask Righeimer questions that might be rattling around in your head.  For example, the preliminary budget shows a $12 million deficit.  You might ask Righeimer what his solution for this problem might be.

VEGAS RESULTS
Or, you might ask him how many solid leads were developed during the recent Las Vegas visit by Righeimer, Mayor Pro Tem Steve Mensinger, CEO Tom Hatch and other staffers.  What was our "return on investment" on that little trip?

RISING CRIME
Or, you might ask him about our rising crime rate, particularly in light of his decision to close down the A.B.L.E helicopter program and his unwillingness to staff the Costa Mesa Police Department back to levels appropriate for effective policing based on experts in the field.

FIRE DEPARTMENT RE-ORG
Or, you might ask him why Interim Fire Chief Tom Arnold's original reorganization proposal was modified to retain C.A.R.E Ambulance - one of his campaign contributors - despite evidence that Arnold's original plan would represent significant cost savings and better coverage?

SENIOR CENTER
Or, you might ask him about his attitude toward the Senior Center Corporation Board of Directors and the operations of the Senior Center.

CHARTER AGAIN?
Or, you might ask him why he insists on bringing back a Charter scheme after it was resoundingly defeated by the voters last year.



HOLD HIS FEET TO THE FIRE
Have fun...

All good questions, Geoff. But if you are really expecting an answer, don't hold your breath.

Or ask why you need a nuisance law that doesn't replace the need for CUPs, even though you aren't actively enforcing existing CUPs and, as a result, screwing over property-tax-paying citizens?

Because Riggy needs a "win," or ANY accomplishment to show his backers at the Lincoln Club that he should be promoted. This is also why millions will be wasted again on his charter scheme.
