Letter: Council member Cohen did the right thing

Thank you Menlo Park City Council member Andy Cohen for filing the successful FPPC complaint regarding Redwood City Council member Foust.

I've been concerned with the way the Redwood City Council was pressing ahead with the planning for Cargill's Saltworks project as if no one's concerns were being heard. A conflict of interest is a significant issue.

What else don't we know about Ms. Foust and the other Redwood City council members? Political contributions from Cargill and DMB? Conversations behind the scenes?

And I want to thank the entire Menlo Park City Council for having the courage to take a position against this proposed massive development. You've led and now other cities are following.

Davena Gentry, Redwood City
