Costa Mesa blogger Martin Millard this week addressed rumors on his blog of a possible run for City Council with a platform for his nonexistent campaign. Millard, known for his outspoken stance on immigration and view that nonprofits attract illegal immigrants to Costa Mesa, said Wednesday that while he’s definitely not running in 2008, he hopes his hypothetical platform will influence other candidates to take up some of his views. “That was just to goad politicians to adopt some of these things.

Alex Coolman Like sweaty spectators at a boxing match, Newport-Mesa residents are gearing up for the slugfest of tonight's first presidential debate. Some political watchers are eager. Others are worried. And some are angry that nobody but Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore gets to step in the ring. All of them will be tuning in to see what, if anything, the candidates have to offer. Tom Fuentes, chairman of the Orange County Republican Party, says he's optimistic about Bush's chances in the debate, arguing that the candidate hasn't yet had a chance to show voters his real self.

Alicia Robinson Voters in the 70th Assembly District will have to do their homework before voting Tuesday, since none of the three candidates seeking the seat have held elected office. Republican Chuck DeVore, who beat five opponents in the March primary, is vying with Democrat Carl Mariz and Libertarian Mark Baldwin to replace Assemblyman John Campbell. Baldwin is a first-time candidate but has been a delegate at state and national Libertarian party conventions.

Alicia Robinson Longtime Orange County Superior Court Judge Jim Gray announced Wednesday that he'll leave the bench for a year to run for U.S. Senate. A self-described "lifelong Republican," Gray told a group of about 60 supporters at the old Orange County Courthouse that he'll run as a Libertarian for the senate seat held by Democrat Barbara Boxer.

Lolita Harper COSTA MESA -- Communication is key to any successful venture, especially when public safety is concerned, city officials said last week as they approved a $626,288 police department radio system. Council members voted unanimously to fund an antenna system that will provide clear reception to three officers stationed at South Coast Plaza. Last year, the Costa Mesa Police Department changed to the new 800-MHz radio system but certain areas of the city had poor or little reception.

Paul Clinton Dozens of candidates have flooded races for water and sanitary districts, led by a determined contingent of Libertarians intent on establishing themselves as a legitimate third party. This broader countywide trend is reflected here in the six water and sanitary races for seats representing Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. The races will be found further down on the ballots on Tuesday. Thirty-seven candidates are vying for the six seats, with 15 of those endorsed, and in many cases recruited, by the Libertarian Party of Orange County.

The response to last week's column asking our politicians to dare to lead and dare to lose was substantial, and mostly positive. The column closed by commenting that there is nothing wrong with our country that cannot be resolved by us once again becoming Americans! But what does that really mean? The column last week also said that we became great by our own grit, and by respecting and enforcing private property rights and free trade, and that's certainly true. But fundamentally none of these things would have been effective without liberty.

We have a lot of very bright people who read the Daily Pilot. I am wondering if someone could help me out. Apparently I do not have a clear understanding of the definition of “illegal immigration.” My interpretation is “somebody who has entered a country illegally.” According to my interpretation, the term means contravening a specific law, especially a criminal law. Why don’t we eliminate the term “illegal immigration” and just continue with the free-for-all, which is the direction many of our esteemed lawmakers are taking us?

Newport Beach Rep. John Campbell may not have cast many votes in Congress yet, but when he has, they've stuck to conservative ideals, according to one lobbying group that released 2005 rankings of members of Congress on Friday. The American Conservative Union, which claims to be the nation's largest grass-roots conservative lobbying group, named Campbell among the "best and brightest" conservatives based on votes on 25 bills in 2005. He was one of 50 representatives and senators thus distinguished, but since Campbell took office in early December, he hasn't had much time to run afoul of anyone.
