This was our 8th edition of Feet to the Fire. 

Candidates  running for Costa Mesa City Council all took the stage September 18th 2014  at Orange Coast College in the Robert B. Moore Theater. 

Chris Bunyan, Tony Capitelli, Jay Humphrey, Al Melone, Lee Ramos ,Mayor Jim Righeimer and Rita Simpson answered tough questions on public safety, homelessness, and much more. 

As always it was a lively discussion and we appreciate everyone's participation. 

This was our first event at OCC and the venue was great. Much thanks to the staff there as well as Costa Mesa TV.
