Denver Post calls on McInnis to quit the race

ScottMcInnis Denver Post calls on McInnis to quit the race

In 2005, I accepted a water fellowship with the non-profit Hasan Family Foundation. Part of this fellowship entailed compiling a series of articles designed to promote public understanding of historical water issues in Colorado.

In order to complete this project, I retained a renowned Colorado water expert. That expert, Rolly Fischer, spent nearly three decades with the Colorado River Water Conservation District, and is well-respected across the state. During our collaboration, he provided research for the articles.

Regrettably, it has now become clear that much of the research was in fact taken from other source material without proper attribution. While I do not believe that this was a deliberate act, it was a serious mistake.

It’s unacceptable, it’s inexcusable, but it was also unintentional.

I made a mistake, and should have been more vigilant in my review of research material Rolly submitted.

I’ve reached out to Justice Hobbs and the Hasan Family Foundation, and hope to meet with both in the not too distant future.

We all share a deep commitment to Colorado’s future. In the coming days, I hope we can put this matter behind us, and focus on solving the many problems that face our state.
