Santa Clarita City Councilwoman Jan Heidt, in an angry outburst at a council meeting Tuesday night, said a developer had unjustly accused her of having a conflict of interest that could leave her ineligible to vote on a project proposed by the developer. Heidt said she was angered by a letter to the state Fair Political Practices Commission by Douglas R. Ring, attorney for G.H. Palmer Associates, raising the issue of conflicts of interest.

Re "Last House in Bunker Hill Razed," April 23: If a young man was caught spraying graffiti on a house, prosecutors would file charges against him and he would face jail and/or a fine. On Bunker Hill, developer G.H. Palmer Associates didn't merely deface a dwelling, it demolished the last remaining Queen Anne-style house without obtaining the requisite city permits to clear the way for its development. This appears to be a deliberate act to enrich itself. Corporate arrogance and misconduct should be punished just as a wrongdoing individual would be punished.
