Westside resident announces City Council candidacy

May 29, 2002

Westside resident Allan Mansoor, who has emerged lately as an

outspoken Costa Mesa City Council critic, formally announced his

candidacy for a seat on the dais.

Mansoor wants to see the city cleaned up and has not seen that under

the leadership of the sitting council, he said.

Mansoor said he has no official affiliation with any community group

but is in close contact with many members of the Citizens for Improvement


of Costa Mesa, a group run by Westside activist Janice Davidson. A large

number of the "improvers," also touted with electing Councilman Chris

Steel, has voiced support for Mansoor.

Mansoor said he has set up a Web site at o7 www.allanmansoor.comf7

and will walk the streets to introduce himself to residents.
