E-mail from a knowledgeable source on the possible conflict of interest involved with Skip Alston's management of St. James Homes:

"Sounds like it could be an ethical conflict of interest. But if the county commissioner does not vote on the city council, it is probably not legally a conflict of interest. The commissioner may be able to use his influence to get the city to give him a favorable deal. But there is no legal conflict of interest unless he actually gets to vote on it -- and even then if he recuses himself there is no conflict."
