5. INTERVIEW applicants for the pending vacant At Large #1 seat on the County Planning Commission and DETERMINE nomination to the Board of Supervisors for appointment to a four-year term beginning July 1, 2022 and ending June 30, 2026. 
  The Committee interviewed the two applicants and decided to recommend the reappointment of Bhupen Admin to the At Large #1 seat on the County Planning Commission to a four-year term beginning July 1, 2022 and ending June 30, 2026.  The Committee encouraged Mr. Jones to attend meetings of the advisory bodies that most interest him and to contact his district supervisor to explore additional volunteer opportunities.

One unidentified caller expressed concerns about potential conflicts of interest between Mr. Amin's professional interests and his role on the County Planning Commission.  The Committee explained the process of recusal when a real or perceivable conflict of interest arises and also explained the many safeguards in place to ensure that conflicts of interest are identified and avoided.  The caller also was concerned that she could not find the Planning Commission agendas on the public website.  The Committee and staff directed her to the relevant pages on the County website.
