Polis apologizes for comments about the Rocky

Congressman Jared Polis apoligized for his remarks about the closing of the Rocky Mountain News.

“I apologize to the entire Rocky Mountain News family and anyone who was offended by my recent remarks. I did not mean to offend nor to show anything less than a strong sense of remorse for the loss of the Rocky. Like many Colorado residents, I grew up reading the Rocky Mountain News and its demise and the loss of over 200 jobs is a major blow to our community, especially in these troubled times.”—Congressman Jared Polis.

The apology was published in the Denver Post.

It is nice to see that he sees what he says can have a negative impact on the community that he represents. Let’s hope that he continues to see that and does not make any more stupid comments.
