Humphrey Edges Closer To Righeimer

PAINFUL...
That little squeaky sound you're hearing all over town about now is the sound of sphincters tightening as the 5:00 p.m. results were posted at the Registrar Of Voters Site, HERE.

A TIGHT RACE GETS EVEN TIGHTER
Here are the results for the Costa Mesa City Council race in which Katrina Foley appears to be clearly the highest vote-getter and incumbent mayor Jim Righeimer and former councilman Jay Humphrey are running neck-in-neck for the second seat available.
THIS HAS A FAMILIAR FEELING...
Each of them picked up a couple votes, but Humphrey has closed the gap during this session and now trails Righeimer by only 18 votes.  The counting will continue.  The next update is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday.

STILL A LONG ROAD AHEAD...
To call this a nail-biter is a major understatement.  According to the ROV web site, 14,765 ballots were counted today.  135,540 remain and the beat goes on, and on, and on.  Two years ago it took most of two weeks before the final numbers were certified.  Be patient...

MEASURE "O" CONTINUES TO DIVE
In case you're wondering, Measure "O' - the bogus charter scheme - continues to spiral down in flames.  Here's the 5 o'clock numbers for that one.
WAITING...
More info to come when available.  Relax.... there's nothing you can do now except wait and hope.  Well, maybe not NOTHING...

Thank you for keeping us up to date. Let's hope all goes well. I don't understand how the Charter can go down in flames and Jim not go with it. Oh, well, such are the mysteries of the ballot booth.

Casual, yes, me either. One should go hand in hand with the other, huh?

Next up: the Planning Commission lackeys will push through a church at 1901 Newport, 89 more 3-story units, and a motor scooter business with variances for signage, excess storage, and proximity to residential...

I wonder how many developers are scrambling to get their approvals through to the falsetto Mayor?

And "I will guarantee you there will be a lawsuit" if Jay Humphrey picks up 19 votes.

The other curious thing is the role of Humphrey and Ramos. Foley and Humphrey were billed as a team as was Righeimer/Ramos. Clearly the voters tried to come up with other combinations.

our hopefully former ex- mayor, is litigious to say the least. So if lawsuits are to fly but be would be gone, the choice is easy "bring it."

Kudos to Wendy Leece! Wendy is the unsung heroine in this election season. She devoted many, many hours—canvassing and coordinating—to the Humphrey/Foley campaign effort when she could have been working on her own campaign, but she chose to do what was most important for the city.

She deserves a special commendation for her tireless efforts on behalf of Costa Mesa during the election as well as during her terms in office.

Especially during the last four years, Wendy has exemplified professionalism, dedication, assertiveness, and grace under pressure. Her contributions to the welfare of Costa Mesans are many. Thank you Wendy!

Amen, amen to Tamar's praise of Wendy Leece! I remember so well the evening I saw her entering a room where CM4RG was gathering. Tears welled up in my disbelieving eyes. "Rapprochement" [raproshmanh] is such a beautiful word/concept/event.
