HOLLAND — Raymond Korny has a lot going on.

He is Holland's dog officer and a member of the Health Department. Korny is an alternate member of the Western Mass Casino Task Force, a constable, operator of the Holland Wood Recycling Center, and has held positions on the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Korny is now looking to further broaden his scope of services with a run for a seat on the Board of Selectmen — one of two men running for the seat that will be vacated by longtime Selectman Earl Johnson on Monday, June 7, the day of the Town Election.

The other candidate in the race for Board of Selectmen is former Tantasqua Regional School Committee member Michael Kennedy.

"I need more heads for all these hats," Korny joked.

His motivation for running for the Board of Selectmen: taking all of the knowledge from those different positions and experiences and putting them to collaborative use for betterment of the town.

"Everything is intertwined there and that's what the future is all about," Korny said.

If elected to the board, Korny said there are a handful of issues he would like to address, while learning as much as he can and getting caught up to speed on certain other issues.

"There are a few, I don't want to call them pet peeves, but things that the town does need," he said.

One of those things, Korny said, is better maintenance of the town's waterways, Hamilton Reservoir and Holland Pond.

"Holland seems to revolve around the lake systems here," Korny said.
