Charter Public Meeting Scheduled For Thursday

The grass-roots organization, Costa Mesans For Responsible Government, is holding a meeting on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Avenue, Costa Mesa (at Lions Park) at which Jim Righeimer's Charter will be discussed.


This group is composed of a broad cross-section of Costa Me
sa residents opposed to Jim Righeimer's Charter and is led by President Robin Leffler, a community activist and Mesa Verde resident, plus former Mayor Sandra Genis, former Vice Mayor Jay Humphrey, retired Costa Mesa senior planning official Perry Valantine and others. This group authored the argument against Jim Righeimer's Charter for the June ballot, HERE.

I've included their official announcement of this meeting below. (Click on image to enlarge) It seems to me that this may be one of the few places available to residents to get information on this very important issue that has not been spun by the City Council propaganda machine. To whet your appetite just a little, you can read a commentary by Valantine from the Daily Pilot online today HERE. If you can't make the meeting, visit their website,, for more information. It is a repository of valuable information on the REAL impact of Jim Righeimer's Charter that you won't find discussed on official city correspondence. See you Thursday.

I hope this group will consider the viewpoints of those who support the Charter and its concepts of local control. The battle has become very caustic. We will be voting for the Charter but certainly respect the group's viewpoint. I firmly believe Costa Mesa should become a Charter City--whether this June, next November of in 2013. Change should come.

I suspect these folks will consider opposing views, but those views are being widely distributed from the dais and by the CM Taxpayers shill group.

I don't disagree that a charter may be good for the city - just not THIS charter. If it's right for the city it's right for it to be done carefully - not jammed down the voter's throats.

Why is RickandJenn aka MM stuffing this blog with pro-charter propaganda instead of his own?

A little off topic, but it's part of the problem.

The Council whines about overtime costs, right?


Hire enough people to do the job!

You can't force the OT then complain, eh Riggy?

I fail to understand why a handful of malcontents are so afraid of the Charter passing in June. It will forever be subject to scrutiny and change If voters want changes, they can make them.

Good grief people, it's not like the document will be sunk in cement if it passes in June.

You understand quite well troll. Keep talking the s*** Riggy and Mensy tell you, it only helps underline the fact that what they're doing is underhanded and wrong for Costa Mesa.

Costa Mesa was built out many decades ago. We don't need developers in charge here anymore.

"a handful of malcontents":

A much-used Riggy phrase. Damn that public record, eh Jimbo? hahaha! We see you, we hear you, we know what you're up to.
