While it would have been great to think of both Jim and Steve having to sit 'quietly' as the new majority runs the meetings (including closed sessions!), having Steve get bumped off by one of his own is pretty funny.

Note to Katrina, Sandy and John: please be encouraged to change the things that need to be changed to allow you guys to properly guide our city. Undo the wrongs and don't allow distrust to remain. The "guys" built up walls that need to come down. If commissions need to change, change them. If staff needs to change, change them. Don't be discouraged by 'delays' or 'cost' or anything else you may hear. The sooner it happens, the sooner we can remove the cloud that has hung over our city.

We've waited 6 long years for this change, and the time is now to lead and provide a clear vision for the future! Congratulations!

Great job by all those who voted and worked hard getting the vote out. Thanks Geoff!

Yes, this is a good time to express thanks to you, Geoff. The so-called "Passages" between phases of life are important places to pause and take stock of the prior phase and to plan for the next phase.

I value all the effort you put into being the news medium of record for high value city matters. The Daily Pilot and O.C. Register have their places, but don't have the freedom that you have to dig deep and to comment as a respected elder. (I say elder with compassion because I am older than you are!) I value, as well, the high quality of your reporting and the wisdom of your comments.

Your reliable reporting on the many, many things that have gone on in CM has been vital, in large measure, to the people being educated enough and motivated enough to end the reign of error by Righeimer and his somber band of pranksters.

Goodonya mate!
