Dear Citizens of the Marco Island Community,
I wish to extend my sincere apology for my serious lack of judgement regarding a local COVID–19 vaccination appointment. I let you all down and I am forever remorseful for the harm I have caused. I have failed in my ethical responsibility to this community. I make no excuses as I know many of you are struggling to obtain a vaccine to protect yourself and your loved ones. This situation was self–inflicted, I take total responsibility for my actions and I will work tirelessly to earn back your trust and confidence for which I have damaged. I am grateful to the City Council and City Manager for their professionalism, fairness, and grace as they were faced with a situation they never should have had to deal with. This will forever be a defining moment in my life, and I am committed to use this experience as an opportunity to improve as a Man and Fire Chief.
I am available to discuss this situation with any community members who would like to. Please contact me at 239–206–0318
