Council member receives donation from project
Original post made by Suspicious on Feb 13, 2007
John Boyle received a $750 donation from 75 Willow Road, a property owned by developer Duncan Matteson. The prior council, over objections from many residents, granted an amendment to the General Plan and massively rezoned that property so that it could be converted from commercial to high density housing. The new council--of which Boyle is a member--also considered the project at one of their first meetings. Litigation regarding the project is pending.
Do you think it's ethical for a council member to accept a donation from a project on which he's voting? And if so, should we just acknowledge that our city is for sale and try to get the best price possible?
