First "Measure P" Fix-It Piece Arrives

I've written to you recently, HERE, about the serious gaffe made by someone on the City staff when the ballot statement for Measure P, the inconsequential advisory item about toll lanes on the I-405 Freeway, was composed.  I showed you the copy:
And, I explained the confusion about how to vote on this item - two questions, one answer - if you actually care to vote at all on it.

I also explained that the City has decided to spend even MORE money distributing mailers hoping to correct the confusion about this issue.  Well, the first one arrived today.  It is a little piece, folded.  When you open it up this is what you see: (click on the image to enlarge it)
OK... got it?  "Yes" means yes and "No" means no... unless you're answering the first question, in which case it's reversed.... Never mind...

So, if you DO NOT want to see lanes on the I-405 converted to High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes, VOTE YES!

Watch your mailbox for two more missives attempting to correct the mistake.  Good luck...

Leave it blank.  

This is an "Advisory" ballot measure that has NO EFFECT, and has already cost Costa Mesa citizens over $15k in attorney fees, staff time, printing, and mailing.  Now they want to send another 3 pieces on OUR dime to "clarify" this worthless waste of voter's time and money.

Let him know you won't play his wasteful ballot games.  None of the other corridor cities wasted their taxpayers' money to "listen" to them.

Don't let Righeimer have the satisfaction that he "accomplished" something other than another waste of money for his narcissism.  

Whadda ya want?  MONEY?
