TYProle, 8/25/2010 - 3:17pm ""Day of service education will be needed forever," said Michael Patton, executive director for The Metropolitan Environmental Trust and member of the city's refuse and recycling task force.
With all of the "concerns" about conflicts of interests regarding city contractors expressed recently by the Council including Ethics complaints, I am surprised Michael Patton is allowed to serve on a committee to decide the future of city recycling programs considering he is a recycling contractor for the city in a clear cut case of conflict of interest.
Perhaps in the course of their recently adopted quest to root out city contractors conflicts of interests in city government, the Council should investigate this issue with the same zeal and send it it to the Ethics Advisory Committee for review.
That is assuming the Council actually wants consistent enforcement, instead of just using selective enforcement when it serves their political purposes.
Whether the Council ignores this issue or acts on it, will be a good litmus test to answer that question."
