The Ottawa Impact Legal Fund is supporting a group of parents who sued the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners and Ottawa County Health Department. The case was heard today in Grand Haven at the Ottawa County Circuit Court.

A few unexpected things happened!

  1. The court did not live stream the hearing.
  2. Judge Jon Hulsing ruled from the bench after both attorneys presented their arguments today.
  3. The judge ruled against the parents. This ruling can be appealed. His ruling is that an unelected, unaccountable Health Officer (Lisa Stefanovsky) can rule 300,000 people in Ottawa County, for as long as she desires, simply by claiming there is “imminent danger” due to an epidemic.
  4. The judge wrapped up his comments with the following quotes. Read these carefully:

“Can a local health officer abuse his or her authority? Absolutely! What can be done? County board hired her, county board can fire her.”

– Hon. Jon Hulsing (December 6, 2021)

The judge continued:

“One can think of a number of situations where a local health officer could exceed his or her ground of common sense. Fire the officer [or change state] law.”

– Hon. Jon Hulsing (December 6, 2021)

We live in a Constitutional Republic where a single, unelected person should not have unlimited power to rule over the daily lives of 300,000 people.

The Ottawa County Board of Commissioners should fire Lisa Stefanovsky. Unfortunately, the commissioners have proven they will not take action to defend the people, the Constitution, or freedom.
