What a real return to “normal” looks like

In case you missed it, the Daily Pilot on Sunday ran a great editorial by CMCEA President Helen Nenadal addressing Mayor Jim Righeimer’s distorted concept of “normal,” and reiterating what real collaboration between City employees, the Council and the community has historically looked like.

Read Helen’s full commentary here.

The editorial was written in response to a piece published by the mayor mischaracterizing the City’s draconian bargaining proposal as an attempt to return Costa Mesa to “normal.”

But employees who have been with the City for decades know that what the mayor described is not normal at all — it’s a radical political attack based on ideology, not what’s best for the residents of our great community.
