Politics in general these days boils down to constant bickering, the right vs. the left, communication or lack of communication and the overwhelming desire to be right ("City Hall hires columnist for contract, March 22)."
Costa Mesa is in the middle of a real battle to be right. We have a political council here that has an appetite to be right and win. This council has chosen a strong-minded path to implement changes in Costa Mesa with one objective — theirs!
Recent events within the city have caused the need for the city CEO and council to hire a communications expert.
William Lobdell is the choice; he writes well, lives in the city and has always provided quality journalism. He will bring a good pen to the table, just as long as he is able to maintain a clear line between objectivity and spinning what he is directed to by a council that appears very headstrong and wanting to be right regardless of how many people they step on in the process.
