Absent any real alternative reason given by Tony Daysog as to why the opted to recuse himself from the vote on the Circle K convenience store alcohol license, the only rationale we have for recusal if that Tony Daysog felt he lived too close to the project.
Now you know and I know that the recusal requirement is only if someone lives within 500 feet of the project. But somehow Tony Daysog who lives twice that distance away, decided that he would recuse because of an unnamed “conflict of interest.”
If the reason that Tony Daysog did recuse, and after repeated attempts to ask him via Twitter, he seems disinclined to answer between his packed tweeting schedule taking videos of his cat:
And posting photos on trash day:
Anyway, I’m super hopeful that this becomes a trend for Tony Daysog, to recuse when any item comes up to the City Council that’s within 1000 feet of his home. Like the Central Avenue project. That’s equidistant from his home as the Circle K site.
I can’t wait to see what other more than 500 feet projects Tony Daysog recuses himself from deliberating on because it’s politically expedient to not make a decision that might upset a healthy percentage of people.
