The board of a utility district in North Texas ruled this week that its president, Nick Sanders, must file a conflict of interest statement because of his ownership in a tech firm that maintains the town’s software program.
The decision stemmed from a complaint by a resident, Jim Budarf, who was defeated by Sanders in May for a spot on the board of Trophy Club Municipal District No. 1, outside Fort Worth.
Sanders’ company, Combined Computer Resources, provides support at $1,200 a year for the software that he donated to the town in 2003.
