Opinion: Rules are rules for a reason

So how blatant can you get?

As one who is intimately familiar with the operations of the Community Planning Association, the bylaws, and what is proper and improper, the stark contrast between the review and processing of the Whitney project and the Spindrift project makes me wonder if some individuals have lost sight of their mission as representatives. You do not put your personal or professional interests above the interests of the organization you represent. Negotiations with applicants outside the framework of the open public hearings is prohibited.

This is now the second time it appears the system has been manipulated by individuals with a vested interest. If you cannot follow the rules, it is time to resign.
