CITY COUNCILCommissioners shown the door By David Heitz North County News In a move that some residents likened to a politically motivated palatial purge, the City Council on Tuesday voted 3-2 to remove two planning commissioners and a redevelopment commissioner. Amid boos and hisses by about 20 audience members, resident John Moses shouted: "This is like Russia!" Another woman hollered: "We need a new mayor!"
