There is a conflict of interest between the Monterey Hills Federation and the ASNC.
Darius Adle, one of the two ASNC Monterey Hills geographic reps and PRESERVE ASNC Monterey Hills geographic candidates, is also the President of the Monterey Hills Federation.
The Monterey Hills Federation website makes the following disclaimer at the bottom of its Homepage: “In association with the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, Monterey Hills Local Issues Committee”.
The Monterey Hills Local Issues Committee consists of Darius Adle and Judy Knapton. The ASNC has appointed Judy Knapton, the current ASNC Treasurer/Monterey Hills geographic rep and PRESERVE ASNC Monterey Hills geographic candidate, to serve as the liaison between the ASNC and the Monterey Hills Federation.
Therein lays the nature of the conflict of interest. There cannot be an “association with” yourself.
