Letter: Redwood City officials have Cargill conflict

I was surprised to read that Redwood City council member Rosanne Foust and city attorney Roy Abrams both say there's no conflict of interest with Ms. Foust being CEO of the San Mateo County Economic Development Association (SAMCEDA) — even though that group formally endorses Cargill's massive Bay fill development. Cargill even sits on the SAMCEDA Board.

In addition, Ms. Foust is a board officer of the Redwood City Chamber of Commerce, which has voted to support the Cargill plan.

Sounds like a major conflict of interest to me.
