That’s what gets me more; I’ve consulted on presentations for different things before (never one before any council) and used photos of my own, and the members of the local press here would be aware of my website and my work. It could look very improper if someone where to see the photos on the presentation, and put two and two together and get five.

As to your point, yep if a councillor were getting paid on any level as part of a project, then you’d have a conflict to declare and need to leave the discussion. It’s usually best left as a bit of low-level piracy 😀
