Reader: Does Tim Hagan Have a Conflict in Medical Mart Deal?


Isn't there some law or governmental rule that required County Commissioner Tim Hagan to recuse himself from the vote for the county sales tax increase, because of his close relationship with the Kennedy family, who would profit from this Medical Mart they would own? Hagan is godfather to a Kennedy child or something like that and certainly he is very close to them. If he had recused himself from that vote, then it would have failed, since Jimmy Dimora voted for it and Peter Lawson Jones voted against it. Mike Hoffer
