Costa Mesa Yanks COIN From Tonight's Agenda!


With no explanation provided, the City of Costa Mesa issued a revised agenda for the City Council meeting scheduled for this evening.  The revision was apparently necessary because someone caused New Business #1, the discussion of abandoning Steve Mensinger's COIN ordinance.
Presently there is nobody at City Hall willing to talk about why this action was taken.  One wonders if it might have been prompted by a long Facebook screed apparently published by Mensinger decrying the attempt to remove his singular legacy item from the City roles.
In any event, that item has been removed from the agenda, so all of you that Mensinger exhorted to attend the meeting and raise heck about it can just stay home and swap vitriolic Facebook comments.

COIN was a complete waste of time, it was only introduced by Mensy as a way to bastardize the public employees. What a complete joke his time on the City Council was.

Transparency is important, but COIN dragged out the process too long and needs to be streamlined. Contrary to what its supporters say it was not adopted by many other cities up and down the state - only a few. The state struck back with CRONE. It't time to make ALL negotiations honest and above board. Negotiations with private contractors shouldn't be back room deals. The same standards need to apply to all.

Interesting how Righeimer and Mansoor voted in lockstep. In the algorithm for voting, there should have been but two commission members whose seating was determined by these two. Instead, their #3, #4, and #5 choices prevailed. The other three councilpersons voted each her/his own conscience; to vote in lockstep, as did Righeimer and Mansoor, would for them be a Brown Act violation. Not so for the beast with two backs! Righeimer apparently is now the only councilman with TWO votes.

I remember last election,
When the white folks was in action,
Tryin' to get theyselves a president;
I had a big brother named Moses,
He was a great promoter,
Always lookin' for some good advice--
So we told him to go to the poll,
Vote with all his heart and soul;
'Stead o' votin' once, the fool voted twice,
And now he's locked in jail,
With no one to go his bail--
The judge said he should'a given life.

He's in the jailhouse now, (2x)
I told that boy when he left home
To leave them politics alone.
He's in the jailhouse now.
