I am honored to receive the “choice” endorsement (pun intended) of long time Newport-Mesa leader Tom Johnson. Tom now writes for The Current, the weekly focusing on Costa Mesa inserted in the Orange County Register. Click the headline below to read this week’s entire edition of the Current. It also has a fine rundown of where each candidate stands on the important issues facing our city.
Here are the key quotes from Tom’s article:
Harold Weitzberg struck me as a good guy and a very astute businessman. By trade, he specializes in branding and marketing, both of which he says Costa Mesa needs to “repair a damaged image caused by the current council” moving forward.My picks: like him or not, Mensinger deserves another term. If I were trying to get something done, Steve’s definitely the guy I would want on my side. This might surprise some folks, but my second pick is Genis. She’s been there, done that and brings a Stanford pedigree showing that she does have the brains. My third pick is a choice between Weitzberg and Stephens. Both seem solid and I would hope the loser could get re-engaged perhaps at the planning level with a later shot at the council going forward.
