Dear Mayor Sinks and Council members:

We would like to express our concerns about ethical considerations regarding the current City Council in regards to GPA and HE deliberations and voting on any proposed GPA and HE plan.

Considering some widely-publicized past abuses by elected local and Bay Area officials who mixed politics, the public good, political campaign contributions and private business interests and associations, leading to public and media criticism, lawsuits and court actions which are now part of the public record, we respectfully request that:

1.) If any council member has received money, goods or services from any developers, construction companies, property affiliate trades, real estate associations (or their principals), or from property owners who might benefit from an amended GPA and HE for any reason, that council member must recuse (excuse) themselves from deliberation and voting on any GPA and HE, due to possible conflict of interest and any appearance of fraud or political corruption.

2.) Likewise, if any council member is a real estate broker, loan officer, or provides (or owns) an allied construction business, or a property-affiliated trade or profession, which may benefit financially from increased property development, sales or revenues as a result of any proposed or future GPA and HE, that council member must recuse (excuse) themselves from deliberations and from voting on any GPA and HE, due to possible conflict of interest and any appearance of fraud or political corruption.
