Sandy “La Femme Wonkita” Genis throws her purse and Prada shoes into CM Race!


Former Costa Mesa Mayor Sandy Genis is definitely one of a kind.  A no dummy, Stanford University grad, that goes her own way in everything is heading back to the grind of City business for her home town of Costa Mesa, California.    It won’t be easy….City Politics never are, and in this case she has some Bever, Monahan, Righeimer cabal issues to deal with.  Sandy does has one pal on the council and that is “Boy Club Pariah” – Wendy Leece”, who also has a proclivity to “go her own way”!

Genis steps into what we might assess:  to fill the shoes of missing former Council member Katrina Foley, also – another independent thinking soul.  Katrina is so independent that after Costa Mesa City Council she ran for Newport-Mesa School Board – served a couple of years and resigned because she thought the whole process was too slow and too hopeless to be of value.  Sandy Genis brings a broad reach of intelligence and understanding to the process.  Not only did Sandy serve from 1988 to 1996 on the Costa Mesa City Council, including two years as Mayor – but before that she spent many years in the Newport Beach Planning Department.  Today Mayor Genis is a Independent Governmental Consultant on a variety of issues.  Since her departure from City governance – she has not let any grass grow. On local issues “The Mayor” has been a constant critic of the sale of the OC Fair Grounds, by the State of California – under what she calls – the wrong conditions.

Sandy Genis will be a great City Council Member and Mayor ….again!  Sandy was and is a founding member of Cutting Edge – a talk show from back in 2000.  We certainly wish her well in November!  Ding Hao – Mayor Genis!  Ding Hao!

There is little doubt that in any debates that the Mayor may present herself to:  in the words of G. Gordon Liddy:  “Sir, in a war of wits….you are totally disarmed against me!”

There are many Cutting Edge issues at play in Costa Mesa which need to be addressed and resolved, among them:  Outsourcing of Public Jobs, Pensions, the proposed Charter Amendment, West Costa Mesa, Banning Ranch  and many more.  We can think of no one more qualified to deal with these issues than Sandy Genis.  Good Luck Madam Mayor, we are so glad your are throwing your best Purse and Prada Shoes into this race!
