  • For a press release, it's usual to include a quote by the leader of the organization. Pick anything you like to be your quote.
It doesn't matter that you didn't say what I suggested before-- if you say it now, you've said it, regardless of who wrote it. There's an old Washington saying about government and corporate officials: "Never sign anything you write, and never write anything you sign". That is: if you're important enough to have staff, you should let the staff write all your documents, and anything you write yourself is going to be confidential and possibly dangerous to you if it leaks. An example is the Summers memo, which is very good economics, despite what Summers said later, but was phrased bluntly, for other economists, and so caused trouble when it leaked.
