Denver Mayor Michael Hankcock (D) on Wednesday apologized, following a setback for a holiday trip to Mississippi, advising his residents to stay because of the Govt-19 epidemic.
I agree that Hancock issued a statement advising people to “stay home and avoid unnecessary travel”. He said he had publicly announced how his family had canceled his regular “many home thanksgivings,” but wanted to share that his wife and daughter must have been in Mississippi after his daughter took on a new job.
“As the holidays approached, I decided it would be safer for me to see two family members than to return to Denver,” he said in the statement.
“I feel that my decision has disappointed many who believe that it is better to spend only on giving thanks,” he added. “As a public official, I apologize to the people of Denver for properly examining the message that its behavior sends to others. I consider my decision to be inconsistent with the guidelines for staying home for everyone other than essential travel.”
“I made my decision as a husband and father, and I humbly ask those who are angry and frustrated to forgive the decisions I made with my heart, not my head,” she concluded.
The mayor received criticism after it was announced that he had flown to Mississippi a few hours later Tweeting suggestions People across the country will be able to “skip the trip” to give thanks this year, such as corona virus cases and hospital admissions.
