At tonight’s board meeting Mr. Walberg took action to fill the two vacant Health Department board seats.
Before Mr. Walberg’s appointments were announced to the public, Dr. Dennis Norem addressed the county board. Dr. Norem was one of the four candidates who submitted their applications before the deadline. Dr. Malcolm also was of these four candidates.
Rumor has it, that Mr. Walberg contacted former health board member, George Sprecher, and convinced Mr. Sprecher to consider another appointment. As note by my Freedom of Information Act request, Mr. Sprecher’s application was apparently not received until after the July 7 the deadline. (See photocopies below)
