Deception On The March In Mesa North

The drumbeat of deception continues from the north part of town. As will almost certainly be the same with every entry, The Mesa North Mouth continues to tout his chosen slate of candidates and goes to great lengths to denigrate Katrina Foley and the other candidates running against his preferences.

Those of us who have watched him in action and have read his tripe over the years find his current attacks to be absolutely no surprise. For years he has tried, with some success, to manipulate council candidates and members to make life miserable for the Latinos in our community. His hatred of anyone not white is obvious and is reflected by numerous essays he writes on far, far right wing web sites, like the New Nation News. If you doubt my characterization, click HERE and go the link to his most recent essay entitled, "Jump Out Of The Melting Pot Or Die".
This guy knows no bounds when it comes to fabricating falsehoods and flat-out lying about candidates that don't meet his requirements. It's a sad commentary on this city that more than a few folks in our town buy into his crap and assume forcing Latinos from our city will solve all our problems. What a crock!
So, dear neighbors, start paying attention to what's actually happening in our city. Don't take my word for it, and for sure don't take his. Do you own investigation and analysis. Make up your own minds.

Tomorrow night at the City Council meeting our elected leaders will address the issue of turning all but a couple of our nearly 30 public parks into "passive parks" - places where groups of children will be forbidden to play games. This draconian recommendation is the direct result of The Mouth From Mesa North fabricating lies about Paularino Park to keep Latino men from the apartments across the street from kicking a soccer ball around after work. He painted the specter of marauding "soccer gangs", terrorizing the local residents (like across the street isn't "local") - none of which was verified and validated. It's the perfect example of a very smart guy yapping into the ears of some latent bigots who take his word as gospel.

On a more positive note, at least two more candidate forums are in the works, with two more rumored. On Thursday, October 9th, the fledgling Eastside CM Neighbors Group is sponsoring a candidate forum at the Neighborhood Community Center from 6-9 p.m. More information to follow when plans are solidified.

Then, the following week, the Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce and The Daily Pilot will host a candidate forum at the City Council Chambers at City Hall. This event will be televised live and then shown on delayed tape, too, until the election on November 4th. I'm not sure of the starting time, but will advise you when I know.

Take advantage of these opportunities to watch, hear and assess the future leaders of our city. Don't listen to the spin put on the comments - hear them for yourselves. Make an informed decision when you enter the voting booth.

His post is mind boggling. It really must be a drag to live in such fear. Comparing Costa Mesa to Santa Ana is absurd no matter how you look at it.
Mr. West if this constant exageration is what we can expect this election season, you really should take me up on my offer sooner than later =).

I am also entertained by the support of the 3amigos pertaining to a no crime ticket. Does he forget Monahan served terms on the City Council including the mayors seat and failed miserably both times? Riggy has no plan to rid gangs nor does beaver. Riggy comes a city that has Latino gang roots that go back decades before the first documented CM gang popped up, that is a fact. The whole gang issue is a joke and ol'mouth continues to be the punch line.
Get out and talk to a gang officer, ask about the Costa Mesa/Santa Ana comparison and when they can stop laughing, you will get your answer.

The graffiti myth continues to be another fact he likes to distort so people get a vision of a graffiti ridden neighborhood, to bad it does not exist. Costa Mesa does gets bit here and there and as the REAL facts show the majority of it is done by taggers. If you were to break down that statistic you would find the majority of those tags come from out of towners. Remember the TCS mission/mendoza graffiti that people lost their minds over. Notice they never came back?
That was a crew of taggers from the Inland Empire.
I could go on and on, but it's like talking to a wall.
We have documented CM graffiti for years! Since June we have documented it daily and can tell you that new graffiti shows up maybe once a week and that gang graffiti shows up far less, fact.
great post mr. west

Actually, Monahan's situation is worse than you portray... he served 3 terms - the only council member to do so because he was in before term limits were imposed. So, he has 12 years.

You're right, though... no one is going to change The Mouth's mind - he doesn't care what anyone else thinks.
