Re: Coun. Hogarth wants Brown Ave. improved

(The News, April 12).

I find it hard to believe that Coun. Al Hogarth sees no conflict here, as he sits on council, which has a direct influence to his outside interests and has a vote in those said decisions. I would like to believe that Coun. Hogarth is not really that uninformed that he thinks the people of Maple Ridge would not raise some concern to his motives.

He should save the people further embarrassment to having elected him and just step down from council.
