In the wake of the tragic events of July 7th, inaccurate and unfair speculation abounded on social media and beyond. As this is a case currently being fought in court, I cannot discuss the details.
But I can say this. No one is above the law, and that includes me. I expect other residents of Summit County to be treated the same as they are in a similar situation.
These days, I underestimate Christ as a priority in my family life. I love my wife and family and they are most important to me. As a state legislator and his busy family of six, my life has been very stressful lately. We had a drink at home that night and I behaved badly and said things I shouldn’t have said. My actions were not criminal, but they were inappropriate and inappropriate. I apologize to everyone involved, especially my wife and children. I apologize to all voters.
I am proud to serve the people of my district and will continue to serve them as we work through these issues. I know there are better days ahead. Therefore, I am voluntarily participating in a counseling program to address some of the issues that led to this incident.
I ask that people of an open mind allow me and my family to personally deal with this matter and withhold judgment until all the facts are clear.
