I would like to offer my heartfelt apology to the citizens of Marco Island, City Council, and the city staff for a decision I made that has negatively impacted our community. I provided a registration link to my husband with the belief that it would go live at the same time for everyone. That was not the case. We believed the vaccine would have been wasted if he did not go and receive it on that day. I should have used better judgment. I regret and acknowledge that it would have been better to have not received the vaccine. My focus will be on rebuilding the confidence of the city and its residents. I am deeply sorry for the impact this has had on our community. It was never my intention to circumvent the registration process or deprive anyone of the vaccine. I was brought here to set a higher standard and I failed to meet that standard in this instance.
