Re: “Bellows Falls Residents Clash With Sheriff Over a Jail Proposal

It certainly is a "winning idea" for the Sheriff. As he is entitled to a percentage of the $23 million in contracts, he will benefit significantly more financially from this prison (technically a "jail" , but many people will be imprisoned here), than the town.

Senator White's refusal to see the conflict of interest of her being in the employ of a project of which is not only not in the best interest of the community she has been elected to serve (please someone, anyone produce a plausible study which shows how the presence of a prison enhances a community) but which her constituents are absolutely against is confusing and absurd at best and at worst a violation of ethics. Senator White might want to spend a little time with a dictionary. From Websters:

con·flict of in·ter·est
noun
a situation in which the concerns or aims of two different parties are incompatible.

"the conflict of interest between elected officials and corporate lobbyists"

a situation in which a person is in a position to derive personal benefit from actions or decisions made in their official capacity.
