Statement from State Representative Josh Zepnick

"I apologize to both women for my actions and for any distress that I may have caused."

By - Dec 2nd, 2017 08:10 am

As a recovering alcoholic, I have confronted and apologized for many mistakes I made during my years of irresponsible drinking.

While I have no recollection of these alleged incidents, there is never an excuse for inappropriate behavior.

I take the claims seriously and respect the feelings of the women involved. I apologize to both women for my actions and for any distress that I may have caused.

My life is back on track and I’ve been sober for over 2 years. I will not be resigning and I will continue to work hard on behalf of my constituents.
