Conflict of interest

On page A10 of The Union on March 11, it was reported the contractor, Keoni Allen, is building three of the six projects involving the East Main Street/Idaho-Maryland intersection. As this is the same contractor that remodeled the home of councilwoman Lisa Swarthout, she needs to excuse herself from any discussions or votes about the intersection to avoid a conflict of interest.
