Crime-camera case has a tangled cast of characters
Interesting that Ellis, himself, was actually working for Benetech at one point. Regardless, Mr. Smith doesn't see a clear conflict of interest with the issues listed in the article.
There are still some unanswered questions though. In particular, is Mrs. Naef signing documents or working for the city in some capacity? If so...does this constitute a conflict of interest?
I hope we can resolve these questions soon and put the matter to bed.
