The Mayor of the Village of Owego says he made a serious mistake and is sorry after being arrested for driving while intoxicated Saturday night. 

Mayor Kevin Millar issued a statement over the weekend saying “This is a personal issue and a personal problem.”  He says his performance as mayor has not been impaired and he will not let it be.

Millar said the residents of Owego have a “reasonable expectation of better behavior and judgment from their mayor.”

The authorities in Tioga County and Owego have not provided any information about the arrest.

The Rebuild Owego party member was elected mayor in March of 2012.
