Conaway should be held accountable

Belinda ConawayMichael Collins

City Councilwoman Belinda Conaway now admits she signed papers stating that her primary residence is in Baltimore County ("Councilwoman Conaway drops $21 million libel suit," Aug. 2).

If she does not live there, as she claims, why did she apply for a mortgage as a primary residence? If she lives in the county, why is she registered to vote in the city, and why does she hold office there?

Is it no wonder there is so much crime in the city when city public officials think they can buck the system whenever they feel like it? The state prosecutor must be asleep at the wheel as is the city board of elections.
