Hello Christine and Peter.To read Dana Manning's email, click here!
I have to say it is very difficult to follow the story that is unfolding regarding the BOH, the Johnson's and the request for recall. With all the accusations and counters, it is extremely difficult to know who to believe.
Be that as it may, there is one item that still confuses me. It is in regard to Dana Manning - I am unable to locate an email address for her so perhaps one of you could forward.
There is a claim that an email was sent with her name on it. Kowalski claims the email was not written By Manning, but was instead written by Peter Frei. I have not seen anyone refute this claim. So it is important to me to know - is Kowalski's claim accurate? Did Frei indeed write an email with Manning's name on it? Please ask Dana Manning to respond to me. Thanks, Ax Pxxxxx
Dave Kowalski claims on his recall website that Brian Johnson told him that I, Peter Frei, was asked and that I admitted having written the email. This is what Kowalski wrote:
"Furthermore, I was told by Mr. Johnson that Mr. Frei was at the Zoning Board of Appeals hearing and had admitted under questioning that it was he (Mr. Frei) who had written the email sent by Ms. Manning."Brian Johnson is not telling the truth (he is lying in other words!); I never said that I wrote that email. I did not write that email and therefore, if I would have been asked, could not have answer the question in the affirmative.
The hearing during which I was allegedly asked by the ZBA chair whether I wrote said email was recorded and the recording is, I would assume, still part of the ZBA's record to Johnson's public hearing. It would be as simple as to call Fred Beaulieu to get a copy of the recording, listen to it, and find out. I'm sure Fred Beaulieu would also remember whether I was asked that question, and if so, what my answer was.
I'm sorry to say but you need to consider the source; It is an official fact that Brian Johnson is a liar. Brian Johnson was found guilty of defamation by a jury on February 28, 2013 during a three day jury trial of the District Court.
By the way, the jury verdict against Johnson was issued in a civil suit Brian Johnson himself filed against me. The private lawsuit he filed was secretly paid for with Holland taxpayer's money authorized by the Board of Selectmen under James Wettlaufer as the chair person.
Most individuals lie to avoid getting in trouble; Brian Johnson took it to the next level and lied to accuse an innocent individual of a crime in an attempt to criminalize that individual!
The question presented to the jury was:
"Do you find by the preponderance of the evidence that on February 19, 2011, Mr. Johnson knowingly and falsely accused Mr. Frei of having committed a crime?"The jury's answer was:
"YES."To read the jury verdict slips and see for yourself, click here!
I do hope that the question who wrote and emailed the memo to the ZBA is answered. I do not understand why this is even an issue. The content of the email should concern voters and the fact that Dana manning is being recalled for doing the right thing. The question who wrote the email is just a distraction in my opinion.
