Celebrating Outsourcing!

REALLY?
The City of Costa Mesa will "celebrate" the outsourcing of our street sweeping operations to Clean Streets by holding a "ribbon cutting" at Brentwood Park at 4:00 today.  You can read the city announcement HERE.

PROBABLY A GOOD COMPANY, BUT...
Nothing against the good folks at Clean Streets - they have an excellent reputation - but this is just another example of celebrating the decline of the perceived value of Costa Mesa city employees and the celebration of contractors - the hired guns who have no ties to our city, no institutional knowledge, no loyalty to the City or its residents, but who are replacing employees with too much frequency.

I GUESS I'LL BE THERE
So, I'll drag my old body, and camera, to Brentwood Park to watch city officials sing the praises of this latest move to reduce the city staff.  I'll hear the platitudes about what a great day this is for the City and watch them plant a tree to commemorate this day and probably see someone take one of those shiny, new street sweepers for a spin.  And I'll think about how this represents just one more step in the plan to outsource EVERYTHING in the city.  I won't be celebrating...

CMTV WILL COVER IT
Costa Mesa Television will be on hand to tape this event for later viewing on CMTV.

There goes West again, talking down the Improvers and being a hater.

Here's some more good news we bet you didn't even know about- The mayor has been outsourced too! That's right. No more awkward statements and challenges to Fairview Park. No more texting 24/7 and constant bullying.

This machine, which will take over all mayoral duties immediately, will be joining the street sweeping tools on display, in further celebration of outsourcing:

I heard Howard Hull copyrighted the term "hater" and will be seeking royalties from anyone else using the word.

To Arthur Nern:

TRS-80 as in "Trash-80"? Very appropriate.
