Attention Costa Mesa residents (especially those who live in district 5), business owners, church leaders, city staff members, fire and police personnel, and more!  Please see www.takebackcostamesa.com for more information.  Please also like the campaign Facebook page. 

This will be a nonpartisan, peaceful forum focused on finding solutions for our city’s homeless issue and other issues, and will be open to the press.  We will be getting to know each other as Costa Mesa residents, engaging in civil discussions, and taking surveys/polls to make sure your concerns are prioritized in the November election and beyond. We will also be registering people to vote at this event and have a representative who will be able to help people start the process to become an American citizen.

While it is open to the public/all Costa Mesa residents, with the exception of Rebecca Trahan, current city council members, city council candidates and city council candidate representatives may not attend this event. Church leaders, business owners, law enforcement personnel, fire department personnel, city staff, individuals, families, students, and children are encouraged to attend.  Please patronize this business by buying lunch.  Campaign donations (checks only, no cash) will not be required but will be strongly encouraged and requested.  This campaign is about producing solutions, transparency, and having a representative who will best represent Costa Mesa residents.  We can't do that without money and financial support.  RSVPs are not required but are greatly appreciated--please email trahanforcitycuncil2018@gmail.com.  Also, only members of the press and those approved by the Rebecca Trahan for Costa Mesa City Council will be allowed to take pictures, videos, and live stream this event.
