California: Costa Mesa city council member facing recall threat
Costa Mesa city council member Jim Righeimer is facing a recall threat. Petitioner is ran and lost two unsuccessful council bids in 2008 and 2010. Petitioners would need about 8,900 signatures (15% of registereds).
The issue is Righeimer's support for a traffic mitigation agreement between the city and Newport Banning Ranch LLC, which is attempting to develop a nearly 400-acre parcel in West Newport.
