I believe that Martin Millard's commentary ("Community Commentary: 'New Council' bringing about necessary change," June 25) on the wonderful achievements of Costa Mesa's majority City Council members falls disastrously short. He appears to care greatly about Costa Mesa but neglected to mention the damage being done to our wonderful city right here, right now.
I understand we need change, and I'm even willing to believe that the new council members have some great ideas to get us where we need to go.
Anyone can come up with good ideas on how to fix things. The really hard part is actually bringing them to fruition. People do not usually jump off buildings and abandon their employment in great cities doing the right things the right way.
