Homeless Workshop, Mensinger Accused and Christine Cordon Is Back
HOMELESS WORKSHOPS DOWN TO ONE
First, although no official notification has been sent by The City yet, we are advised that the Workshop on Supportive Homeless Housing scheduled for Wednesday, January 15th, has been cancelled. A check of the City Calendar on the website does, indeed, show that item has been deleted. However, there remains one similar workshop the next day, Thursday, January 16th, HERE, scheduled from 6-8 p.m. in City Council Chambers. This appears to be a moving target, so check back often to see if other changes are in the wind.
MENSINGER ACCUSED MISUSE OF PUBLIC FUNDS
Tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7th at approximately 5:40 p.m., there will be a press conference called by resident Mike Harmanos to announce the presentation of facts to the Orange County District Attorney, Tony Rackauckas, alleging that Mayor Pro Tem Steve Mensinger may have caused The City to incur costs that were appropriately those of a private organization - Pop Warner Football. He asked the District Attorney to investigate the issue and will present evidence he says validates his claim. This event will be held on the steps outside council chambers just before the regularly-scheduled meeting begins.
CHRISTINE CORDON BACK ON THE JOB
And, we have received word that Christine Cordon, who had been placed on administrative leave last fall, has returned to work at City Hall. You will recall that she and Public Affairs Manager Dan Joyce were both placed on leave, apparently while questions regarding the 60th Anniversary Celebration costs were investigated. We have no more information than that. Her return was confirmed by Cordon.
