Auburn does not exist in a bubble

Why is our Mayor Bill Kirby “shocked” that (council member) Bridget Powers agreed to be part of a broad regional coalition to address funding and building of a new arena for the (Sacramento) Kings (Journal, June 23)? I think that we should be honored that someone was selected from our city to have a voice in such an important regional issue. We don’t live in a bubble even though we are a few miles from where the arena could be built. Why not put a positive spin on her selection instead of sounding like a curmudgeon, Mayor Kirby?
