Medical Marijuana Meeting Rescheduled-Maybe!

MEDICAL MARIJUANA MEETING PUSHED OUT... MAYBE
The City of Costa Mesa just announced that the Special City Council meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, December 9th at 6:45 p.m. is anticipated to be rescheduled for NEXT Tuesday, December 16, 2014 beginning at 6:30 with a closed session.  Regular meeting is anticipated at 7:00.  Read the notice HERENo specific reason was given for the rescheduling.  It's a curious bit of technical mumbo-jumbo.  I guess they technically can't "cancel and reschedule" the meeting so, in theory, if a quorum shows up at 6:45 tommorrow there could be a meeting.  Brenda Green, the City Clerk, tells me that they do not anticipate a meeting being held tomorrow.


STATE LAW REQUIRES A MEETING SOON!
The City MUST hold a meeting this month in order to meet state requirements involving the Medical Marijuana initiatives that form the core of the agenda.

GOOD NEWS!
This is good for a couple reasons.  First, we can continue our Christmas shopping and, second, Rookie Mayor Steve Mensinger can continue his withdrawal program from his smart phone and practice conducting a meeting.  "Steve, please turn your cell phone off! See this? This is an "agenda".  This is what you use to conduct the meeting.  Just consider it a song book.  Take it from the top and read, verbatim, what we've highlighted for you.  These are pages.  They must be turned so you can follow along.  Those are staff reports.  You should consider them "homework" and read them BEFORE the meeting.  You remember "homework", right? Like what you did while at USC?  Never mind...  No, don't try to read them on your smart phone - the screen is too small.  When in doubt, just ask CEO/City Manager Tom Hatch.  Good luck."

Good god, give him a little space to at least try. When he screws up then we can criticize, but until then,..lay off.

As far as I'm concerned, he screwed up when he voted along with Righeimer to screw Sandy (and Wendy) out of their turn to be mayor.
