When a member of the government has a concern about, say, a project in which a family member has some interest, where is is his opportunity to give input to decision-makers about it? He hopefully will not deliberate or vote on the item, and may, in some municipalities, be asked to leave the room during its consideration. What do you think: When and to whom can he ethically speak his concerns? Can he speak to the public about it? Other affected parties? If he is an elected official, can he speak before the appointed planning board about it? Or has he given up his right to speak on such an issue as a citizen when he was sworn in to his position?
