  • Community Commentary: Council cannot justify legal, PR costs

  • City Council OKs contracts with two law firms

    COSTA MESA — The City Council on Tuesday approved contracting with one law firm to see the city through its workforce outsourcing effort, and a second law firm to defend those contentious outsourcing plans in court. In a 3-1 vote, the council...

    COSTA MESA — A lawsuit filed in May by city employees hoping to stop the proposed mass layoffs has tentatively been scheduled for April 9, city officials confirmed Friday. The complaint by the Costa Mesa City Employees Assn. argues that the City...
  • Community Commentary: Let's not be hasty about charter city decision

    Late Tuesday evening, at the tail end of the Costa Mesa City Council meeting, after most observers had left and local reporters had already filed their stories, Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer dropped a bombshell ("Chart city request proposed," Nov. 3)....
  • Community Commentary: This City Council makes a charter risky

    I read with interest the Nov. 3 Daily Pilot article by Joseph Serna "Charter city request proposed." It was unsettling to learn that the stated reason Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer wanted to pursue a city charter, rather than remaining a general law...
  • Community Commentary: I'm thankful for our wronged city employees

    There are many things for which I'm thankful, as we approach Thanksgiving Day this year. As always, my wonderful and patient wife of more than 44 years is right at the top of my list. She makes my life special with her love and support in all that we do....
