Glenn Vs. Dixon, Brenner Vs. Peotter,

 Feet to the Fire Vs. Costa Mesa 


This week I look at the latest developments in the battle between Mike Glenn and Newport Councilwoman Diane Dixon as the city tries to move the case from small claims to Superior Court and fails. 

There's also a new twist in the Peotter recall effort as resident Joy Brenner throws her hat back in the race should a special election come to fruition. Could this be a game changer for some on the fence signing the petion to remove Peotter? 

And what about Feet to the Fire 2018? Could we see the city of Costa Mesa reverse its policy not to air or tape any candidate forums- as they did in 2016 election? 

Who on council is championing this reversal? 

Oh yeah, never a dull moment in Newport/Costa Mesa politics and I have the scoops!
