At the first Council meeting following the June 5th election, a dozen or so Irvine residents (mostly veterans) addressed the three pro-developer Councilmembers during the Public Comments portion of the meeting to discuss the issue of the Great Park Veterans Cemetery.

Ironically, as the veterans asked the Council to listen to the voters, the Council completely ignored them, staring at their phones and texting the entire time they spoke.

If Irvine residents take the time to attend a Council meeting, our City leaders should respect their constituents enough to pay attention and listen.
