|Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway
(left) told LovelandPolitics he never met
with Chad McWhinney (right) and instead
based his decision on the information
presented at the hearing;
"Thanks for the opportunity to clarify your
story based on what you have been told.
First, at no time was there ever any
meeting, discussion or any other
communication between Mr. McWhinney
and myself or any of the other Weld
commissioners about the land use case.
No meeting ever occurred. That would be
inappropriate in our land use process and
just would not occur with any applicant. In
fact, since being elected as a
commissioner in 2008 the commissioners
have never had a meeting with Mr.
McWhinney on any issue.
In addition, I am very careful not to make
any comments on any land use case
before I have the opportunity to listen to
the public, the applicant and reading the
planning commission minutes at the land
