Analysis of Wettlaufer’s August 17th Stunt.

Wettlaufer gave one of his “performances” during the last meeting of the Board of Selectmen. His elaborate scheme to attack his opponent Raymond Korny is disingenuous at best. Wettlaufer did what he does best, misinform the community in an attempt to further his own agenda, read more»

Raymond Korny resigned from the Board of Health.

As of 10 am today August 18, 2010, Ray Korny is no longer a member of the Holland Board of Health.
Ray Korny resigned because the Board of Selectmen refused to issue an exemption which would allow Ray Korny to run the brush dump while serving on the Board of Health. Such exemptions were issued in the past on a regular basis but James Wettlaufer as chairman of the Board of Selectmen refused to issue such an exemption in Ray Korny’s case.
According to Ray, Chairman James Wettlaufer, in a very unprofessional manner, called Korny a liar and an idiot during a phone conversation.
Ray Korny was seeking to be elected for the position of selectman during this years election and will run against James Wettlaufer who’s term will come up next year.
