Laura Kostin ‘I am very deeply sorry’

November 20, 2018

I used an unkind word on election night to describe Mr. Bocchino. I should have been more diplomatic, I’m sorry that I wasn’t and I make no excuses for it.

I am very deeply sorry for offending Mr. Bocchino. I truly regret any hurt I may have caused him.

I have tried to reach Mr. Bocchino twice via email. I first reached out to him on Nov. 7 and offered my phone number.

Hearing nothing after my first overture, I apologized in a public Facebook post dated Saturday, Nov. 10.

I emailed Mr. Bocchino again, but have heard nothing as of this writing. I tried calling him but was unsuccessful in reaching him by phone at the number I found publicly available for him.

If provided with another phone number, I would be glad to try phoning him again.

I do hope Mr. Bocchino will accept my most sincere apology and in doing so, join me in putting this incident behind us.

Laura Kostin is a former Democratic candidate for state representative.
