Recently I made an error in judgment that I publicly acknowledge. I take full responsibility for my actions and have paid the citation. Though I have publicly apologized on social media, this letter allows me another opportunity to apologize to the public.
I also wish to publicly apologize to my wife and my daughter. This incident has caused them tremendous pain and I am sorry.
Public officials are expected to lead by example, and I did not live up to that expectation. I am very aware that the public, especially our youth, look to adults and public figures as role models. Unfortunately, role models make mistakes. I am hoping that my situation serves as an educable moment.
I am looking forward to putting this unfortunate incident behind me and I respectfully ask for the opportunity to allow my family to heal in private.
Finally, a heartfelt thank you to the many friends, family and supporters that have reached out over the last few weeks. Your kindness and understanding mean the world to me.
