Board of Clackamas county commissioners: Deny re-zoning of farm and forestland at Morgan and Tonquin Rd
Matt Wellner resigns as Washington County Planning Commissioner
Sep 26, 2013 — http://www.oregonlive.com/washingtoncounty/index.ssf/2013/09/washington_county_planning_com.html Matt Wellner is also the Project Mgr for Tonquin Holdings, the applicant for the Rock Quarry in Sherwood. Wellner works for K&R Holdings, the Metropolitan Land Group, and also for Tonquin Holdings. All these companies, together with 100+ other ones are owned by Sean Keys and most of them, if not all, are involved in land development, construction, or property management in one form or another. This may explain why Washington County wasn't strongly opposed to the quarry application. If this quarry is approved, the taxpayers of Washington County will have to pay for maintaining, repairing and upgrading the roads while the additional truck traffic will remove a lot of the benefits of the 124th extension.
Please note that the companies owned by Sean Keys have given over $125K to local politicians in the last few years.
