MP Transportation Commisioner Katherine Strehl Should Step Down Due to Major HSR Conflict of Interest
Original post made by Bob on Feb 26, 2011
Even though it though there is nothing illegal about her serving as a commissioner while working for the efforts of the state agency that the city has fled suit against, she should step down to prevent any chance of improprieties.
As a transportation commissioner what is there to prevent her from using her position to provide herself, her PR firm and HSR with info regarding city efforts re HSR. As a "city insider" she has easier access to coordinated efforts with other communities and an insiders read on the thinking, mores and strategies of those involved on the cities side. In a sense an HSR trojan horse.
