We feel that the HOO <br /> amendments put forward by Commissioner Ramos and Councilwoman Phan have been a <br /> coordinated effort to reward their political benefactors and that the votes taken by these two <br /> officials have been violations of State and City code. <br /> We call on the City Attorney, Mayor, and City Manager to cure this issue at once and to send the <br /> HOO back to the Planning Commission (as several Councilmembers requested) for a hearing of <br /> the new items raised by the conflicted members and a fair an impartial process without <br /> Commissioner Ramos or Councilwoman Phan involved. <br /> The referral to the FPPC is a referral and not a complaint yet. A sworn complaint will be filed if <br /> the Council votes on the item tonight. The violation has already occurred regardless of the vote <br /> tonight, however, Councilwoman Phan and the rest of the Council should not commit an <br /> additional violation by voting on this item this evening. <br /> Furthermore, the item is NOT appropriate for a second reading on the consent calendar because <br /> the item has changed so materially from the original item that a full presentation of the change <br /> MUST be presented before approval. <br /> Legal issues of this approval include but are not limited to: <br /> 1. Improper Vote at Planning Commission with a conflict of interest and a pre-written motion <br /> drafted by sources of income to Ramos. <br /> 2. Improper Vote at City Council with a conflict of interest and illegal conditions presented by <br /> Councilwoman Phan. <br /> 3. Improper Vote on second reading at City Council with the same conflict of interest, illegal <br /> conditions, and a improper placement of the item on consent calendar when the item had material <br /> additional amendments. <br /> i <br />
