At Least Six Green Pond Stockholders Still Have Local Ties
Green Pond Attorney Graham Simmons was less than honest. Thanks to regular reader Hank_Hill, I have a list of the 21 (not 24) stockholders. They are all listed on Green Pond's liquor license, which is a matter of public record.
W J DAUB III (Uncle John) is PRESIDENT and DIRECTOR. CHARLES W CHURCHMAN JR is VICE PRESIDENT and Director. His family is associated with Easton's Churchman Business College, and the family may still reside in Easton. ALDO BRAIDO, a Director, is Chairman of the Board at General Supply. His company is located in Bethlehem Township. JOSEPH E MILUTIS, another Director is a former NorCo GOP Chair and IBM Exec. He is listed as an officer at AAA Northampton County and appears to be an Easton resident. RICHARD R RULAND is a Director and someone with that exact name lives in Bethlehem. The same is true of another director, Someone with the exact same name as director John J Simon lives in a $400,000 home in Bethlehem Township. RODGER L ZELLNER JR is listed as ASSISTANT SECRETARY, ASSISTANT TREASURER and MANAGER/STEWARD. He is a local resident.
Stockholder ELSIE L BROWN may be John Daub's deceased aunt and widow of Thomas Brown, who co-founded the Brown Daub car dealership in 1936. Thomas Brown had been employed at General Supply Co.
The remaining stockholders will be checked today through a search of Northampton County property records. They are H R RITTERSBACH III, DIRECTOR; CHARLES R WILSON; ROBERTA G BENNETT; RICHARD R BILHEIMER; DOUGLAS BILHEIMER; L H BROWN JR; T S BROWN; PETER DEELY; THOMAS DEELY; JUNE L LUYBEN; SUSAN MCCREA; JOAN M TAFT and GABRIELLE WILLIAMS.
For you Caddyshack fans, I did not see the name Carl Spackler.
Contrary to what Simmons told the Planning Commission, at least six stockholders are still tied closely to the Lehigh Valley. There are likely more, and I will determine that today.
You can help, too. If you recognize any of these names, please feel free to share what you know in the comments.
