I do not have a dog in the Costa Mesa City Council fight, but if I had one in it I would be somewhat chagrined by Eric Bever and Jim Righeimer's new campaign modus operandi.
But first, I feel bad about Mr. Righeimer's previous financial difficulties; perhaps if he had paid more attention to his finances and his website and less to party politics, self promotion and interests that interfered with his family and financial life, he would be in a better position to offer advice on financial matters and community standards or serve in elected office. He seems too busy to devote much quality time to city matters when Sacramento or Washington might be on his horizons. Should I mention that a confrontational disposition toward things about which one is uninformed is not recommended for taking public service positions? If I project just a bit, perhaps Mr. Righeimer is bothered that the public employees were still on payrolls while he was in the throes of getting his life back in order.
