Steve Lodge doesn't seem to know if Curt Pringle is the former Mayor or Mayor of Anaheim. I can understand how he'd be confused since Curt Pringle thinks he still is the Mayor of Anaheim.
Rumor has it that (update: has now been confirmed) Mayor Tom Tait's approval ratings are higher then Curt Pringle's ever was. Maybe its because Mayor Tom Tait listens to the people and does what's right. Mayor Tom Tait can't be bought off like Curt Pringle's minions Gail Eastman and Kris Murray.
