NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Two top executives at a nursing home company say they never met former Gov. John Rowland, despite assertions that he was hired as a consultant there.

Rowland is on trial facing seven federal charges. They include allegations he hid payments for work he did on the 2012 congressional campaign of Lisa Wilson-Foley through the consulting deal with Apple Health Care, which is owned by her husband, Brian Foley.

Jack Boynton, Apple’s vice president for human services, and Ann Collette, the company’s vice president for business development and marking communication, both testified Friday they never worked with Rowland, despite being in charge of the areas where Rowland’s lawyers assert he provided consulting.

Rowland’s contract called for him to provide strategic advice in such areas as marketing, business development and labor relations.
