Costa Mesa city clerk suspended for missing ballot deadline resigns
Costa Mesa City Clerk Julie Folcik, who was suspended after missing a deadline to submit the city’s proposed charter for the June 5 primary ballot, has resigned her post, a city official confirmed this week.
Folcik, who had been with the city for about 10 years, was suspended with pay in March after missing the deadline, officials said. The city petitioned the Orange County Superior Court soon after to force the measure onto the ballot, but failed.
The city launched an investigation into the mistake after Folcik was suspended, but the results were not immediately available.
The city hired Brenda Green, Stanton's former city clerk, to serve in Folcik's place in the interim.
The city charter is now expected to be on November's ballot.
