This is Not the Year of the Priola

  • 4 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

The Chinese New Year began on February 8, and according to tradition, 2016 is the “Year of the Monkey.”

Perhaps 2017 will be the “Year of the Priola,” because 2016 sure isn’t starting out well for state Rep. Kevin Priola. Earlier this month Priola took a lot of heat for asking to delay a legislative hearing discussing family leave legislation so that he could take his daughter to the doctor; when the hearing was rescheduled and Priola was in attendance, he promptly voted “NO” on a bill that would have allowed other Coloradans to get family leave time from their employer for academic needs.

Priola is running for State Senate in District 25 this year, and he’s using social media — sort of — to get his name out in front of the masses. On Wednesday, Priola sent out the tweet below and paid money so that it could get “Promoted Tweet” status and be seen my more people. Good idea, right? Sure…as long as you proofread the tweet first:

PriolaTweet-2-24-16

Wait…Kevin Priola says that “he would confuse tax law in Colorado and reduce jobs?” Are you sure you want to promote that?

Today, Priola’s tweet is no longer being “promoted,” as you can see below, but the damage has been done.

 

D’oh!

  1. I think Rep. Priola is being absolutely honest.

    By their efforts, he (and his party) do endeavor to "confuse tax law in Colorado," and "reduce jobs."  He is standing tall for what he believe in and what he does!
