Aurora Council Candidate Claims To Have Been Misquoted But Won't Say What's Incorrect

  • 0 Comments

(O-kay… — Promoted by Colorado Pols)

Aurora City Council candidate Danielle Jurinsky claims that I misquoted her a “couple” times in an article posted over the weekend, but she won’t say where the errors are.

In the piece, about a conservative slate of candidates that’s campaigning together to take over the Aurora Council, I wrote that Jurinsky welcomes being compared to U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), that she carries a gun, that she’s not received a COVID vaccination, and that she wants to make the Republican Party “cool.”

In a phone interview today, Jurinsky, a Republican, repeated an earlier claim that I misquoted her, but refused my request to point me to any statements in my article that were incorrect.

Here’s a transcription of my interview with Jurinsky:

Colorado Times Recorder: This is Jason Salzman with the Colorado Times Recorder.

Jurinsky: Jason, I don’t have anything to say to you.

Colorado Times Recorder: You said I misquoted you. I’d like to know where.

Jurinsky: You did a couple of times. You did.

Colorado Times Recorder: Where?

Jurinsky: It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. You are not going to clean up the record. It’s obvious that you apparently have the biggest crush on me out of all five of us [running as a conservative slate for Aurora City Council] because of how you wrote about me. But you are not going to say anything nice about me. You never are.

Colorado Times Recorder: I will correct the misquotes. That’s a very fair request.

Jurinsky: That’s very fair, and that always happens. I mean, that’s standard practice, but your article has already gone out.

Colorado Times Recorder: I can go ahead and correct it. No problem.

Jurinsky: Jason, I don’t care. I wish you the best. I’m going to finish off my race without any chatter and outside noise from you guys. I’m going to stay focused. I don’t care what you write about me. I don’t care.

Colorado Times Recorder: Okay, thank you for getting back to me in the first place. If you have a change of heart, here I am. I don’t want to put out misinformation.

Jurinsky: I appreciate it. Thanks.

Colorado Times Recorder: Take care, Bye.
