I read with dismay and disbelief the words of our mayor, David Sills, (May 20). Sills is quoted as saying, "I'm not particularly concerned or interested in municipal budgets, streets, sewer systems and the police force." These, however, are the very responsibilities that Sills accepted when he was reelected just a year ago.
With out city budget increasing so dramatically over the past two years, someone on the Irvine City Council better show an interest.
Words of elected officials are sometimes misquoted or taken our of context. Whether or not Sills was correctly quoted by your reporter, he owes the taxpayers of Irvine an explanation.
