Former City Council candidate Mark Blaschke this week took the public comment period of a council meeting to issue an apology.
Blaschke said he owed Republican Councilor Ken Cockayne and his family an apology for a rambling, threatening phone message last month.
"I should have used more common sense and restraint," Blaschke said.
He apologized to Mayor Art Ward and the council as well for the time and trouble surrounding the incident.
"Apology accepted," Cockayne answered. "It's in the past. Forget about it."
