Stories about San Juan Capistrano city politics were the biggest and most-read stories of the week.
Capturing readers’ attention the most was the changing of the guard when Mayor John Taylor passed off the gavel to Mayor Sam Allevato. The three-person council majority has been rotating the honorary position among themselves since they formed a threesome, when Taylor and Councilman Larry Kramer were first elected in 2010.
The week started out with details on the mailer we all got just before the Thanksgiving holiday, targeting supporters of the attempt to recall Allevato, with an especially unflattering picture of recall leader Clint Worthington.
Readers were also interested in how much it will cost to maintain a new city park now under construction and why a new beer pub had to be declared a public necessity.
