LETTERS: Election gifts pose conflicts

Will the four White Rock Coalition city councillors dismiss themselves from all discussions and votes regarding the Forge and Elegant developments when these come before city council?

Both development companies were contributors to these councillors’ campaign for the 2014 city elections.

I expect Couns. Lynne Sinclair, Grant Meyer, Megan Knight and Bill Lawrence will do the right thing and acknowledge this is an obvious conflict of interest whenever there is any business concerning these developers before city council.

Shari Lindsay, White Rock
