Letter to the Editor - Board needs to avoid conflict of interest

To the editor,
After I read your newspaper report of the Hill County Park Board (discussing grazing on Beaver Creek Park), I find I must agree with Nick Siebrasse about it appearing to be a conflict of interest.
Perhaps in the future, those board members directly benefitting on any vote, whether it’s a cabin owner, a grazer, a hay producer or a park permit user, should recuse themselves from the vote to avoid any appearance of wrongdoing.
Their opinions prior to the vote are important. Everyone has the right to voice his or her opinion.
We know it is a board representing all taxpayers, not just a select few.
