The union representing some Costa Mesa city employees condemned this weekend's vandalism at Skosh Monahan's bar.
Early Saturday morning, someone reportedly threw a brick through the Newport Boulevard Irish pub's front-door window with a threatening note taped to it. Officials said the note criticized Monahan personally and referenced the citywide layoff notices distributed last month.
"We abhor and do not condone such violent actions … we all have the right to promote our opinions and pursue our goals without fear of this kind," Orange County Employees Assn. General Mgr. Nick Berardino said in the statement.
