I’m happy to say that there was no damage to any property or any individual“. With that said, Holland declined to make any further comments, citing the incident as a personal matter. Holland was appointed to his third term as Auditor General last year and received high praise from lawmakers for his investigation into the administration of former Governor Rod Blagojevich. William Holland currently receives a salary of $150,346 as Auditor General and is due in court next month.
