I made the offensive statement on the open microphone at last Tuesday’s City Council meeting. I had finished my project presentation, answered all the City Council member’s questions and the council was deliberating the project. I was under the impression that the public microphones were on mute at this point in the evening. In my private home office, alone with my personal thoughts, I blurted out the offensive statement that was inadvertently and unintentionally broadcast. I sincerely apologize. I would never have expressed my frustration publicly in this way. I certainly never would have knowingly made a statement like this in a council meeting. I did not mean for this private thought to be heard by anyone. As soon as I heard that my utterance was heard by the public, I called you. You did not call me back. I wanted to make sure you received my apology.
