Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid gave a review of his meeting with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell yesterday. Kinkaid met with Jewell and other federal officials Friday night in Glenwood to talk about the ColoWyo situation. Several other local, state and federal officials were there, including Commissioners from Rio Blanco, Garfield, and Delta Counties, Moffat County Natural Resources Director Jeff Comstock, Craig Mayor Ray Beck, and Congressman Scott Tipton. Comstock said Jewell made it a point to note that the meeting was only taking place due to the persistence of Kinkaid. Those that attended the meeting said they felt a genuine connection with the Secretary, and said they believe she is sincere in looking out for the jobs of coal miners. At the meeting, Jewell assured everyone that if the judge who ordered a second Environmental Assessment is not happy with the results, she will file for an extension. Comstock added that he was impressed with the fact that Jewell allowed Kinkaid to close out the meeting, something he says is rare. He says the last words you hear at a meeting of this nature, are typically those of the Secretary. Pictured: Sally Jewell
