THE TRUE COST TO COSTA MESANS OF THEIR PUBLIC "SERVANTS"

In this case, the servants are the ones served. The servants get the gold and the feather beds while those they serve have to work overtime to pay the servants.

You've no doubt been reading the columns in the dead tree press about the massive salaries and benefits that Costa Mesans pay our public servants.

What you're not seeing reported is that most of these public servants don't want to live in Costa Mesa and they take the money we pay them to the cities where they do live. Those are cities where they own homes, put their kids in schools, and do their shopping.

This is a big money drain on Costa Mesa. Our tax money is not recirculating here, it's going down the drain.

Several years ago the CM PRESS was able to obtain the percentage of our cops who don't live in Costa Mesa from City Hall's Human Relations Department. We didn't get their addresses or names, just the percentage that don't live here. That percentage was more than 75% (if memory serves it was up around 79%).

Recently, we tried to get the figures on the percentage of firefighters who don't live here and we also wanted an update on the percentage of cops who live elsewhere.

No dice. City Hall has now circled the wagons and won't give us that information.

This brings up the amount of secrecy that seems to be the order of the day at City Hall.

You see, we're just peons--we tax paying citizens--City Hall chooses what you can know about your government.

We ordinary citizens weren't allowed to know what was being negotiated with the employee unions and could give no input into the negotiations until everything was set in stone and rushed to a vote by the City Council. Now, we're stuck with contracts that screw us but reward our carpetbagging employees.

Our elected City Councilmembers just don't seem to be up to the task of protecting our interests and approve all sorts of stupid things. Don't get us going @#$#^&^*^&^%#=.

Hey, City Council, you can find out the percentages of employees who live here. Why don't you get those numbers and let us know?

Those are our opinions. Thanks for reading them.
