Can't help but wonder if them being on the commission is helping them get business in their private firms. If you're planning a project that is going to have to go before this commission and you're down to two candidates, one of who is on the commission, who are you going to choose?

The investigation will not find any thing because Rybek and his APPOINTED buddies cover up for each other almost as much as the Mpls. police do but most importantly you have to have ethics in order to review them.

I questioned exact same problem back in 2007 and no one from ethics board thought it was a big problem. There are indirect influences in this process and strict rules are mandatory. Also, planning commissioner's terms have to be limited.
