SEATTLE’S EPSTEIN

Time Is Running Out for Lloyd’s of London’sWashington State RICO Unit

Part Five of Ten

By J.P. Zenger

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

On March 8, 2022, at 11:18 a.m., the offices of Snohomish County, Washington government seemed the same as any other morning. There were two exceptions. In the main reception area, the unseasonal smell of freshly cut grass drifted in through the partially open window on an unusually clear and sunny 46-degree day for early March. Nothing remotely suggested that a metaphoric F5 storm loomed just over the horizon.

The second exception to routine was the presence of a federal agent serving a subpoena. Compelling records about members of the largest RICO in the history of Washington State. The subpoena is expected to be the first of many. Over the next few months, dozens of local and state government offices, public officials, and private law firms are predicted by legal experts to be next. The storm with the power to eviscerate the RICO and the lives of its members thus announced its imminent arrival in Washington State.

After 15 years of effort by Washington State’s Gold Bar Reporter, together with its growing network of 13 volunteer attorneys, 86 victims and their families, hundreds of public records requests, and a lengthy investigation by federal law enforcement, the Washington State unit of what is now proven to be a massive global RICO operated by Lloyd’s of London appears to be rapidly nearing its end, according to voluminous evidence and insider testimony.

The RICO was deconstructed by the Gold Bar Reporter after retaliation by RICO member John E. Pennington, Jr., as chronicled in this series, “Seattle’s Epstein.” As explained earlier in the series, one of several cogs in Lloyd’s complex RICO machine is estate, probate and guardianship fraud involving billions of dollars. “We really lucked out,” said John Scannell, an appellate attorney in the 9th Circuit. “At the end of over a decade’s work, when choosing model RICO cases to bring to national attention, we found what is alleged to be a model case of estate fraud.” Luck may have little to do with the extended public interest group’s ongoing success.

For his part, Mr. Scannell is clearly a remarkable person. One of the few people in the history of the state to get a perfect SAT Score, he has a degree in physics from the University of Washington, is an accomplished chess champion, and has a decades-long history of public interest litigation with hundreds of millions of dollars of impact. He has rarely charged for his work and has a national reputation as “The Wizard of Laws.”

Mr. Scannell’s associate Anne Block, J.D., is equally remarkable. She worked through law school as a machinist while raising her infant daughter as a single mother. An award-winning investigative journalist, she inherited from her social activist New England parents a 163 IQ, their tireless Yankee work ethic, a blunt Boston bravado, and instilled in her an obligation to actively challenge corruption – regardless of the time or cost required. “They considered our historic Bostonian civic duty sacred,’ she said. “So do I.”

Luck may also have little to do with how the group’s associates discovered their model estate fraud case. In 2019, a guardianship victims’ relative, semi-retired major media journalist Mr. Greenwald joined the Gold Bar Reporter network. He acquired state-of-the-art fraud detection software, and began to process Washington State records. “We now discover patterns of fraud and relationships in seconds that until a couple of years ago would have taken thousands of hours and was only used by the NSA and CIA,” he said.

Openly Corrupt King County Commissioner Carlos aka “Crazy Carlos” Velategui is a Key Member of a Vast Washington State RICO

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

“It’s hard to overstate the significance of the new fraud analysis software. It’s like we are dealing with 19 century bank robbers who have no idea what a computer is. The software uses artificial intelligence and ‘Big Data’ in such complex and sophisticated ways that it really is science fiction come true. We have the next best thing to a brain scanner. After we find the patterns and cases, the same judges, attorneys, and public officials appear. We then contact the victims and their heirs.

The model case that the group discovered is the estate of the late Robert Cannon. “It’s the perfect fraud case,” said Mr. Greenwald. “We have an openly corrupt commissioner, Carlos aka ‘Crazy Carlos’ Velategui, and a plaintiff, Henry Cannon, who was an employee of King County and a friend of several judges. It couldn’t be better,” he stated. “This is our dream case. Velategui was already on our short list of the most corrupt judges in the state before his initial retirement two years ago. We are also reviewing all of the cases of Hanis Irvine Prothero.

“Known to be one of the most openly corrupt King County, Washington judges for his entire career, Velategui continues to fraudulently exhume himself from retirement like a crypt keeper of public corruption whose rotting hand clutching a fistful of stolen dollars rises from the grave in a “B” movie. But he couldn’t do it without the help of his friends in King County government,” said Mr. Greenwald. “They know who he is and what he does.”

Upon discovery of the Cannon estate case, the group reached out to an estate creditor with their evidence. The effort to elevate public attention about Velategui, other colluding public officials, and the firm Hanis Irvine includes two websites focused on Velategui and Hanis Irvine to assist victims with the automation of filing federal criminal complaints, to function as central repositories for evidence, and to collect and package evidence for a civil class action. “We have large national firms interested before the sites are fully live on May 15,” said Mr. Greenwald.

Patrick M. Hanis, the Law Firm Hanis Irvine Prothero and its staff are the subject of a RICO Investigation.

“It’s all about focus. In addition to Pennington, who really revealed the entire RICO, we are focusing on a relatively small number of public officials and attorneys. Our greatest asset is their arrogance. We will keep packaging evidence and sending it to federal authorities in D.C. We know how much collusion there is between the RICO members and public officials in the Western District,” said Anne Block, Publisher of the Gold Bar Reporter.

For his part, Patrick Hanis is a key subject of the Gold Bar Reporter investigation.  In addition to his involvement in probate and guardianship cases of interest, Mr. Hanis has acted as a Commissioner for King County Water District #111 since February 2004, which serves the areas of Meridian Valley and Lake Meridian in Kent. During that time, he and his law firm have represented clients with water rights issues.

Charles Wilson is Being Investigated for His Decisions Involving Clients of Hanis Irvine

Gary G. Cline is Being Investigated for His Decisions Involving Clients of Hanis Irvine

“We are examining every case of record and alleged conflicts of interest between Water District 111, Mr. Hanis, Hanis Irvine, and its staff, clients, Mr. Charles Wilson, and Mr. Gary G. Cline,” said Ms. Block. “Beyond that, I can no longer comment.”

 UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA FAIRBANKS’s Employee John Pennington Explains His Support And “Outspoken Advocacy” of Abortion Rights

© By J.P. Zenger, for the Gold Bar Reporter, Reporting from Fairbanks, AK USA

Killer and Serial child rapist John Pennington explains his unwavering support of abortion as being “about consistency”

Fairbanks, AK USA “I may have committed negligent homicide of 43 people, and am currently an alleged ‘person of interest’ in some other supposed homicides and disappearances of underage children across a few states and Canada, but it’s really about consistency,” said John Pennington, aka “Seattle’s Epstein,” reflecting on his well-known support of abortion. “I mean, I may be called a murderer, but at least I’m not a hypocrite.”

The nationally infamous serial criminal took time from his schedule as a public official and Faculty Member of the University of Alaska for a remarkably candid, if not confessional, interview with the Gold Bar Reporter to explain his international activism as a leading supporter of abortion rights. “I want to be very clear about my position on abortion,” he stated with emphasis, “I not only support abortion, but I also support it in any circumstance through the third trimester of pregnancy. In fact my personal philanthropy has focused exclusively on supporting abortion rights, and personally paying for dozens of abortions.”

Mr. Pennington has, in fact, illustrated his point of conviction and degree of advocacy of the right to end life through his own personal experience, as is reflected in the public record. In Seattle, when Mr. Pennington and his former wife had a disagreement about carrying their own child to term, he took matters into his own hands to tangibly express the extent of his passion and no-compromises position about the right to terminate a pregnancy. John Pennington nearly beat his ex-wife to death while she was in her third trimester of pregnancy. He had done the same to other former spouses and girlfriends as well. Repeatedly.

“Look at my track record. Of course I support abortion in all its forms, whether done through a licensed clinic, a veterinarian, a midwife, or even in a back alley,” said Mr. Pennington. “It’s an established fact that I was responsible for the death of 43 people. Wouldn’t it be kind of silly if I went around saying I was pro-life?” he said, “Actually, it would be nothing short of ridiculous,” he emphasized. Mr. Pennington’s court-ordered psychiatric evaluation by Dr. Marsha Hendricks in Seattle concurred, concluding that he has “no empathy for human life whatsoever.”

Another court-appointed psychiatric evaluation by Dr. Ableben Z. Hintritt of Los Angeles, California concluded that Mr. Pennington’s:

“…severe Asperger’s, together with a long history of incest and reciprocal extreme domestic violence from a very young age that involved both his mother and grandfather has resulted in a deeply disturbed and dangerous psychopath with behavior manifesting in dissociative identity disorder, commonly known as a ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ personality.’”

Dr. Hintritt further predicted that:

“Mr. Pennington’s disorders will be regularly triggered by seemingly random events, and will continue to result in severe outbursts and physical violence, including inevitable threats to human life. When those trigger events occur, he has no capacity whatsoever to control his behavior, degree of internal agitation, and external violence and harm that will predictably manifest during those events. Mr. Pennington is a headline waiting to happen,” said the internationally regarded Psychiatrist. Dr. Hintritt’s prediction was prophetic. The headlines have appeared all over the world.

“By far the greatest danger of Asperger’s patients who also manifest psychopathy and antisocial behavior is their ability to study and mimic the behavior of others, and thus to appear normal until any number of trigger events occurs,” stated Dr. Hintritt in his report to the Court. “This is very disarming in the case of Mr. Pennington, as the subject is highly intelligent, presents with a distinguished and attractive appearance, and yet as accurately cited in the previous analysis by Dr. Hendricks, Mr. Pennington has absolutely no capacity for human empathy whatsoever,” he said. “The combination of his disorders, together with a complete absence of any moral compass makes Mr. Pennington as dangerous as any subject I have ever assessed,” stated the noted Psychiatrist and profiler of serial killers, including fellow Seattle murders Ted Bundy, Gary Ridgeway, and dozens of others.

“Mr. Pennington’s consistently violent criminal behavior precludes any rational possibility of functioning in society. Permanent involuntary confinement without the possibility of parole is the only conceivable option.”

Mr. Pennington’s support for abortion goes well beyond his financial support. Several restraining orders have been issued against him for harassing pro-life advocates at their homes, protests, and even their offices. Mr. Pennington’s harassment of public pro-life protests has involved him both “mooning” and sexually exposing himself to groups of protesters, including children. The investigations and/or prosecutions of all of these incidents and charges have been blocked, sealed, and/or dismissed by the many judges and public officials whom he and his wife have directly or indirectly extorted and continue to extort.

Consistency indeed. John Pennington’s demonstrated position on a child’s right to life and protection has been equally consistent throughout his entire life. A serial rapist of very young children since he was a teenager, the cases of his rape of boys and girls span the country. After violently raping several children in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, he raped several boys at his church in San Diego. He then raped and attempted to murder a five-year-old girl in Cowlitz County, Washington. According to the lead detective in the case, Maurice Saxon, “John Pennington is the man who raped and tried to murder that little girl.”

After the child rapes in San Diego, he fled California. Relocating to Washington State, he found an uncontested seat in the Washington State Legislature, representing a sparsely populated community. Using his new position as a state legislator, he actively “socialized” at every possible venue with his fellow legislators. The socializing included countless “meetings” at several private and public “swingers” clubs that feature spouse swapping and every conceivable related activity. He then arranged private flights with lobbyists and legislators to Portland, Oregon to have sex with underage victims of child trafficking. With and without the knowledge of the legislators, he took pictures. Those pictures, together with those taken during his current wife’s politically targeted promiscuity at Mr. Pennington’s direction, has allowed the Penningtons to continuously blackmail judges and politicians. Those judges and politicians have, in turn, pressured lower ranking public officials to forego investigation and/or prosecution of countless of the Pennington’s crimes.

The Legislators who occupied office concurrently and “socialized” with Mr. Pennington, and/or who have been subject to his blackmail, include Washington State’s Attorney General, Bob Ferguson, Judge Eric Lucas, Judge Joe Wilson, Marlin Applewick, Commissioner Jeffrey Gibbs, in addition to several other public officials. His extortion has resulted in those politicians and public officials erasing Mr. Pennington’s criminal history on the FBI’s NCIC criminal database, pressuring prosecutors to forego prosecution of dozens of crimes, including child rape, and one of the most visible, and egregious, and extensive cases of negligent homicide in the history of the United States.

In one example of his ability to evade or defer justice, Mr. Pennington’s rape of the five-year-old girl in Cowlitz County, WA, was to be prosecuted by a Kelso City Prosecutor Michael Kenyon. Directly after Mr. Pennington assumed state office, however, “The rape kit for the investigation disappeared, several witnesses were never called, and the case never went to trial. Pennington was never even charged. Michael Kenyon directly aided and abetted Pennington, a violent serial child rapist, and went from his $43,000 a year job with Cowlitz County, WA to receiving millions of dollars in state government legal services contracts. Pennington went free. Is that a coincidence?” said a former Police Detective and private investigator. The little girl, who barely survived, got a lifetime of night terrors, according to her mother.

The most dramatic example of the power of Mr. Pennington’s blackmail is the fact that his negligent homicide of 43 people, homes, animals, and related economic impact of over two hundred million dollars was never prosecuted. “John Edward Pennington Jr. got his job as director of FEMA’s Region 10 through fraud, according to the Seattle Times. The story is covered by dozens of major media outlets across the world. He repeatedly lied to the press about his failure to disclose the slide risks to residents. And he’s fired for stealing FEMA money, but never prosecuted? How is it possible to get away with murder and federal fraud in broad daylight. In front of the entire world?” said a FEMA insider.

Roughly Half of the People in Washington State Killed by John Edward Pennington Jr.

When told of Mr. Pennington’s current employment in a $100,000+ position as the “Deputy Director of the Center for Arctic Security and Resilience” with the State of Alaska, referencing himself on the State website as “an internationally recognized emergency/disaster management and public policy professional,” the otherwise calm and professional FEMA insider responded with an extended series of expletives, followed by “Are you serious? Who in God’s name let this happen, and how on Earth is it remotely possible for this murdering child rapist con artist to get a job in government, again? This is insane.”  

“Like I said, it’s about consistency,” concluded Mr. Pennington in relation to his tireless support of the right to end life, abruptly ending the interview, “I can’t stand hypocrites.”

Washington State Bar Association, to be abolished over felonious conduct

Late last summer, the Gold Bar Reporter was first to break a story about the Washington State Bar Association’s dropping the word ” association.”

Our source, an insider close to Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen stated ” the WSBA is trying to come up with a plan to push liability off on Washington State taxpayers, because it’s clear that the Bar is going to lose Scannell v WSBA et al. and Block v WSBA et al. over felonious racketeering and anti-trust violations. ”

We just learned that Washington State Bar  Association has officially voted to drop the word association, in an effort to push liability of 50 Million plus onto Washington State taxpayers, instead of pushing liability to its’ members the above two cases.

In Block’s cases, public records from Snohomish County and the United States Post Office documented that John Pennington ( man who killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides, only suspect in the rape of 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington, and is now working for Pierce College), set up a post office box in Duvall Washington to pass  financial bribes to attorney Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend  Mark Plivilech, while at the same time, John Pennington is the  man, according to the lead detective on a Cowlitz  County case from 1992, the man who is responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl.   Instead of suing Block, John Pennington enlisted his friend Linda Eide, Washington State Bar’s lead counsel, and Washington State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs, to go after Block, a journalist who held a WSBA Bar license, for reporting on John Pennington criminal conduct.

In John Scannell ‘s case, Washington State Bar counsel members Scott Bugsby and Linda Eide tried to gain access into John Scannell’s attorney client files in an effort to go after a Board member’s political foe and Scannell’s client Paul King.

A source said ” The Bar knows that once you two win, you’re coming after them personall to collect damages, starting with members of the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel.”


Washington State Bar’s letter to its members

 

IMPORTANT – if you want the WSBA to continue as your professional association, you should attend one or more of three upcoming meetings at the Seattle WSBA offices, discussed more completely below:

  • Public meeting of the WSBA Bylaws Workgroup on August 8
  • Special Meeting of the BOG on Aug 23
  • Regular Meeting of the BOG on Sept 29/30.

I attended the WSBA BOG meeting Friday in Walla Walla, having recently realized (through my work on theSections Policy Workgroup) that the BOG is now starting to implement a comprehensive series of sweeping changes to (i) the WSBA Bylaws, (ii) Court Rule 12.1 and to (iii) the Bar Act.

These changes are being implemented incrementally for tactical reasons, but are designed and intended ultimately to:

  • Substantially reduce the ability of Members to influence WSBA governance – in violation of the Bar Act,
  • Eliminate the WSBA’s role as its “Members” professional association,
  • Wholly and unambiguously convert the WSBA into a public entity/government agency with the singular and exclusive mission of serving the public, and
  • Enhance and expand the scope of the Washington State Supreme Court’s influence and control over all aspects of the WSBA (including setting Member dues), not just matters relating to licensing, regulation, attorney discipline and other such areas.

These changes are part of a longer term and little known Strategic Plan that is the product of these and other key WSBA leaders:

  • Executive Director Paula Littlewood,
  • Immediate Past President Anthony Gipe,
  • President William Hyslop,
  • WSBA General Counsel Jean McElroy

The full scope of the changes and the underlying justifications for them are detailed in:

For your convenience, here’s a link to the Public Materials for the Walla Walla meeting (all 656 pages):

I then identified four of the proposed Bylaw Amendments most concerning to me:

  • First, I strongly objected to changing the name of the WSBA after 128 years to drop the word “Association,” emphasizing that this change is explicitly intended clarifythat the WSBA is not actually a professional association of attorneys. I said I thought most WSBA Members would find this highly objectionable and would be quite surprised to learn that they weren’t really part of a professional association for lawyers.
  • Second, I objected to putting the Washington Supreme Court in charge of determining members’ dues and said I thought others would too.
  • Third, I described the creation of three more appointed Board seats as undemocratic and bad from a governance perspective because appointed seats are subject to abuse by vesting too much power in the hands of too few. [Note: these changes to the BOG composition would also directly violate RCW 2.48.030of the Bar Act regarding the “Board of Governors.” The BOG is arguably illegally constituted currently based on that RCW.]
  • Fourth, I objected to giving limited license practitioners a greatly out-sized percentage of the Board seats relative to their de minimis numbers – i.e., 2 Board seats from a total of fewer than 20 limited license practitioners. [In my view, these folks should have to run within their Districts just like other Bar Members. At best they should be entitled to only a single designated seat.]

A reporter who was present at the Washington State Bar’s meeting said ” I added that I had read through the Governance Task Force Report twice in recent days and that I wasn’t too enamored with it, and that I had found much of its key analysis conclusionary and unpersuasive.”

He further stated “My comments stirred up quite a few folks, including current and former BOG members, several of whom said essentially that these issues had already been debated and discussed for a long time and that it was time to move forward with all of the recommendations in the Governance Report, including the first group of Bylaw Amendments under consideration.  These Governance Report recommendations have strong momentum. One gentleman even said he didn’t necessarily agree with the decisions made but that a lot of time and effort had going into them and it was time to start passing them because folks had done a lot of work and he wanted to see the results. So much for not being pushed into bad decisions by undue focus on sunk costs. ”

 

Mr. Gipe is currently running for King County Superior Court Position #52 – a position that could be the first step on a path to the Washington State Supreme Court, where he could ultimately exercise the control over the WSBA that he currently seeks to vest in that body. I personally feel it is very important to prevent this and thus to keep Mr. Gipe out of the judiciary. That is why I have gone to great lengths to support his opponent in the race. If you share my concerns…. Proposed Policies Eliminating or Restricting Religious (Cultural) Practices During the morning discussion of the WSBA’s proposed restrictions on religious practices, members of the Indian Law Section EC and many others from varied backgrounds advocated strongly that the Indian Law Section should be allowed to continue whatever religious and cultural practices they thought were appropriate, both for reasons of ensuring those who practice

King County Judge, Snohomish County’s inactions in Oso Mudslides may be negligent, case set for trial

UPDATE: A source from Snohomish County confirmed that John E. Pennington is the true owner of the Sky Valley Chronicle. An online news paper being sued for criminal cyber-stalking, defamation, racketeering, bribery, fraud, 1983 violations, in Block v WSBA, at el.

On Friday October 29, 2016, another reporter contacted the Gold Bar Reporter with “forged,  altered documents, perjury and filing false instruments with the Court”.  John E. Pennington placed into a Pierce County case attempting to SLAPP down our message about his pedophilia and abuse against women. Criminal complaints are being pursued against John Pennington and he will be formally charged in November.

 

Snohomish County’s relationship with the Stillaguamish Tribes is worsening as Prosecutor Mark Roe and Washington State attorney General’s office try to shift financial responsibility away from convicted criminal harasser, former political appointee John E. Pennington.

Pedophile

In 2014 when 43 residents in the Oso mudslide disaster suffocated to death, John Pennington was in charge.

Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers terminated John E. Pennington in January 2016 after the voters overwhelmingly sent John Lovick packing. But not soon enough; 43 people in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster suffocated to death because of John Lovick and John Pennington’s gross failures of  catastrophic magnitude.


Oso Mudslide Trial set for September 2016

 

The Gold Bar Reporters will be in the courtroom with video cameras in hand for the upcoming Oso mudslide trial and testimony of John E. Pennington, former Director of Emergency Management.  A political appointee of disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon.  Reardon resigned soon after the Gold Bar Reporter’s articles exposed Reardon for misappropriation of public funds to fund two affairs with county employees.

Public records reveal that instead of doing his job, John Pennington criminally harassed citizens on the County’s dime operating a blog titled ‘ The Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Additional public records document that Pennington was convicted in Lake Oswego Oregon for violently beating his ex fiancé in 1991.  As a result, John Pennington fled Oregon.

There are thirty nine victims, and their estates suing the state, Snohomish County and logging company Grandy Lake Forest Associates for wrongful death. Instead of resolution, Washington State Attorney General’s Office and Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe try to shift blame to the Stillaguamish Tribe  last month claiming that an agreement shifts liability to the tribes.

“The Tribe’s official records demonstrate that the Tribe’s Board of Directors passed no resolution delegating authority to anyone to sign the Agreement on the Tribe’s behalf,” the complaint says. “There is no evidence of the Board ever considering the Agreement at all. Without a Board resolution approving the Agreement or authorizing anyone to sign it on the Tribe’s behalf … the Tribe could not have waived its inherent sovereign immunity for claims arising out of the Agreement,” a spokesman for the Tribes said.

According to an insider, Pierce College in Tacoma Washington hired John Pennington to  cover up the fact that Pennington remained unemployed, a ploy to fool the jury.  ‘Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Attorney General’s Office sat around for hours talking about how Pennington’s being unemployed would look to the average juror. Bob made a few phone calls and managed to get Pennington a temporary political appointment,” the insider told the Gold Bar Reporter yesterday.

John E. Pennington is being sued for racketeering in US Federal Court in Seattle, with a new one in Connecticut State Court. Pennington’s depositions are expected to begin early in 2017.

We wish the Stillaguamish Tribes well, and hope they are successful on stopping abusive bullying by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and his criminal racketeering organization up here in Snohomish County, also know as Snohomish County Prosecutors.

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington and now to Pierce College ( Tacoma Washington diploma mill), dark  secrets unearthed. Gold Bar Reporters were the first to report on John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct, a small portion of our report is outlined below


MEET JOHN ‘ THEODORE TED BUNDY” PENNINGTON

John Pennington was a troubled youth who, according to one source “had a major drug problem by the age of 16.”  So it’s no surprise that in the late 1980’s, after being kicked out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee after raping a female college student, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.

While in the San Diego area,  John Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex-wife # 1, Carla M.

Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.

While in Tennessee, John Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open State Rep. seat.  After a landslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west. This time to Oregon where John Pennington meets his next victim.

Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment  and his ex-finance sued him to recover damages ( Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized her Oregon. A felony record, Senator Dunn helped hide from the public eye.

As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver Washington, John Pennington meets his next victim. Sadly, they soon married.

While working in a coffee delivery business, John Pennington stole coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer and used this equipment to start-up a coffee shop in Kelso. Purpose was to make it look like he was an entrepreneur ( but he is really a sociopath) as to grab an uncontested Republican seat in Cowlitz County.

It worked, the uneducated college dropout John Pennington managed to get elected to an uncontested WA House of Representatives seat. Unfortunately for residents in New Orleans and Oso Washington, he met a powerful Washington State Republican leader, Jennifer Dunn.

In 1992, a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Cowlitz County road like a piece of trash.

John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons:

(1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped after being raped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) he was in the area at the time of the child rape and could not explain his whereabouts; (4)  his picture from 1992 is a complete match to the child and witness sketch drawing of the pedophile; (5) he relentlessly convinced his ex-wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man; and ( 6) He has continuous and countless charges of child and spousal abuse, a man who cannot keep his hands to himself.

Below is the press release as it relates to John E. Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington

 

Unfortunately for the 5 year child, John Pennington meets a Kelso Washington city attorney named Michael Kenyon.

According to John Pennington’s divorce files he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico  for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.

In 1995, John Pennington was also a member of the Washington State Militia, a group dedicated to over throwing the United States government. ” John sat around for years obsessed about getting even with the Longview Washington news reporter for reporting that John was a member of the State militia.”

From 1992 to 2005, John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex-wife. # 2, Valerie. From pushing her down a flight of stairs as well as constant physical harassment,  John Pennington never learned to keep his hands to himself.

But the case that raised our eyebrows is Mr. Pennington’s abuse on his ex-wife # 2 ( who is really ex-wife # 3) Anne Laughlin. Ms. Laughlin was a City of Duvall city council member at the time of Pennington’s assault of Anne. Anne was three weeks away from giving birth to her daughter when Pennington violently assaulted, kicked and punched Anne in the stomach and uterus. A real salt of the earth kind of man.

redmond-pd1_Page_1

pennington-redmond_Page_1

Since Ms. Laughlin was a Duvall city council member at the time, the City of Duvall sought a Special Prosecutor. The prosecutor assigned to prosecute wife beater John Pennington came from the law firm where Pennington’s buddy Michael Kenyon was employed.

In 2009 when Pennington assaulted Laughlin, this was his third domestic violence charge. This should have amounted to jail time for Pennington.

A close review of John Pennington’s Snohomish County travel records warrant a closer look into missing children in Washington, Alaska, Maryland.  Public monies allowed us to review his credit card receipts, telephone records, etc. information that another blogger turned over to authorities.

Any grown man that takes a shower with a six year old little girl is a pedophile.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2

In 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington criminal harassment and assault that we requested under RCW 42.56.   There’s only one problem, at the time Pennington was communicating with Kenyon Disend’s attorney, he was not a City of Duvall employee thus no attorney client relationship existed.

We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.

Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.

In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”

As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,350,000.00 hidng former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and had lied on her F 1 form stating that she had never pled guilty to fraud when in fact she had plead guilty twice, one in 2000 in North Carolina and a second time in Snohomish County Washington; and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.

Both Penningtons are being sued for gross 1983 and RICO charges with depositions expected to start early next year.

The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding John Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks.

According to former Mayor Joe Beavers, John Pennington and Aaron Reardon “fixed” cases in Snohomish County Superior Court.

As a result of our six-year investigation, we are confident to report that attorney Michael Kenyon assisted John Pennington is committing felonies. Attorney Michael Kenyon and John Pennington will be sharing a prison cell together and we intend to make that happen even it takes me another 30 years, and I will continue to request access to public records and file suits against any agency that renders assistance to a pedophile and wife beater.

Our request for access to public records regarding this issue has already started.  The public, especially Pierce College students, have a legal right to know why Pierce College Board of Trustees would hire a child rapist and wife beater.

 



 


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years, his prior conviction for criminal harassment ( assault of an ex-fiancé in Oregon) as noted in the following public records as prior conviction”

In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State.  Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.

As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.

Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).

What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.

All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing  so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.

African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.


Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny

After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.

I never really thought much of George W Bush Jr. other than he’s a spolied little rich kid who never worked for a living. For the same reason, I couldn’t vote for Al Gore in 2000. Thus, I became one of Ralph Nader’s Raiders in 2000.

Fact is that I probably ran into John Pennington at the Republican National Convention that year in Philadelphia. I, and 1,000,000. Americans blocked the entrance to the Republican National Convention Center preventing many of George Jr’s delegates from accessing the convention center that year.

I was a proud member of Massachusettes ACT UP from UMASS, and had traveled all over the U.S. protesting what I believed to be unequal treatment of economically disadvantaged Americans in favor of corporations. I’m a strong believer that America should place “ people over profits.”

Strangely, I always had respect for George Bush Sr. Why is simple: George Sr is a well educated savey free thinker who listens to his opponents. Unlike his son, George Jr. , who was given a little too much growing up without working for it.  Hard work goes along way in molding one’s self esteem.


In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for.  So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.

For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”

Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.

As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

This was simply a smoke screen to cover up what we just learned from a federal source over Labor Day Weekend.

John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.

Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents,  George W Bush Jr.’s  administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.


On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.  “  An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington,  and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.

I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.


Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.

Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.

Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result  of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.

Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag.  I agree with Hillary Clinton “ it takes a village to raise children.”


John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting during the fall of 2016.

As for Pierce College hiring a pedophile and wife beater, one can only say that each and everyone of the persons involved in hiring a known pedophile will now be investigated as a result.  Stay tuned, because the way I see it, the only ones who protect pedophiles and wife beaters are ones’ themselves.

 

Perhaps Pierce College needed to hire someone to teach “ How to get away with molesting and raping our kids, fraud, murder, setting up fake online newspapers to criminally harass citizens, not pay Department of Revenue taxes, failing to pay property taxes, raping college students, and beating one’s spouse” also known as Emergency Management 101 at Pierce College it appears.

 

Or perhaps it was John Pennington from an online fraudulent program Senator Tom Harkin called fraudulent on PBS’s “ Education, Inc.”  or California Coastal School that the IRS said sold online diplomas at a flat rate http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

 

BEWARE students especially female students as John E. Pennington was kicked out of a real college for raping a student.

 

 

 

 

The mother load! Terminated former Director of Emergency Management caught hacking, public records confirm

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03


 

UPDATE:  More records from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management’s most recent records response also documents that John Pennington used hacking encryption software, was trying to place viruses and malware on computers, blogging on the Sky Valley Chronicle, set up fake Facebook accounts, and set up an account on  http://www.Match.com ( dating service) using a fake identity, etc.  (not sure about my readers, but the only reason a married person would sign up for Match.com is because you’re a cheater).


In May 2014, John E. Pennington caused 43 people in  Oso Washington to suffocate to death, many children.  Instead of doing his job ( mitigating), John Pennington spent most of our county time criminally assaulting women and children, hacking, and setting up fake identities so he could cyber-stalk his opponents, Snohomish County (WA) public records document.

Sounds familiar?  Just like Kevin Thomas Hulten as evidenced by the Daily Herald’s article http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999


 

Reviewed under RCW 42.56, Washington State’s Public Records Act:

In May 2015, then Snohomish County Executive John Lovick wrote John Pennington an email stating  “ John, You’re a great leader.”   This caused me to write Mr. Lovick an email stating   “ Mr. Lovick,  if causing 43 people to suffocate to death in the Oso mudslides is your idea of great leader, I’d hate to see what your of idea of bad leader is.”

In November 2015,  Snohomish County voters booted Executive John Lovick to the curb, by casting votes in favor of honest Monroe resident Dave Somers.


Below is just a small portion of the public records received under Washington State’s Public Records Act as it relates to Snohomish County computers assigned to John Pennington while he was employed in Snohomish County.


For those of you who may not live in Washington State; John E. Pennington is the man responsible for causing the deaths of 43 Oso residents in the most preventable nature disaster loss of life in Washington State’s history, also known as the Oso mudslides. Pennington is also one of three George Bush political appointees ( who all received online printed off college degrees from American Military an online diploma mill Senator Harkin called fraud) responsible for the Hurricane Katrina debacle.

Pedophile

John E. Pennington, terminated


 

Below is just a little snip of John E. Pennington’s stroke keys received under RCW 42.56 ( Washington State’s Public Records Act) as it relates to his county issued computers. John Pennington’s stroke keys ( also referred to as  H_keys) also confirm that he contacted Twitter on the same day the Gold Bar Reporter’s Twitter account was suspended as a result of malicious and criminal harassment John Pennington aimed at us for reporting on his criminal conduct.

Records below also confirm that John Pennington made several attempts to hack into the Gold Bar Reporter’s website, all this while on the county’s payroll and while using county computers.

Pages from SEMJEP-Sept-Oct-2015-user-activity-report_Redacted

According to my expert, Snohomish County’s latest release documents beyond any shadow of a doubt that John E. Pennington spent many hours trying to “hack” into the Gold Bar Reporter.

John Pennington used county computers and was paid with our tax dollars to criminally harass his opponents just like Kevin Thomas Hulten ( now married to attorney Krystal Tate Hulten living Los Gatos California). Dr. Hendricks from King County Washington labeled John Pennington as a “sociopath with no empathy for humans. Source: King County Superior Court.

Over the next month, I will be drafting a criminal complaint against John E. Pennington and will have it filed in Snohomish County Court soon. My counsel sent me the following advice:

RCW 9A.52.110 – Computer trespass in the first degree.

RCW 9A.52.120 – Computer trespass in the second degree.

RCW 9A.52.130 – Computer trespass — Commission of other crime.

RCW 9.73.030 – Intercepting, recording, or divulging private communication — Consent required — Exceptions.

A new lawsuit will be filed John Pennington in two weeks but this time in D.C. Thank you Snohomish County insider, we are well on our way to busting Prosecutor Tempski, Di Vittorio and Mark Roe’s racketeering scandal.

 

 

 

 

 

Sky Valley Chronicle publishes intentionally false articles

The Sky Valley Chronicle is being sued for racketeering  and for defamation in United States Federal District County by the Snohomish County Reporter, Brandia, and myself, the Gold Bar Reporter.

In February 2013, after Kevin Thomas Hulten ( now residing in Los Gatos California with his wife and California attorney Krystal Tate Hulten) was caught via public records criminal harassing Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block, the Snohomish County Council requested criminal assistance from King County’s major crimes unit in the investigation of Aaron Reardon’s criminal racketeering gang from Snohomish County.

Once we learned that King County’s Major Crimes Unit had Snohomish County’s hard drives, we took advantage of one simple RCW 42.56 provision that mandates that an agency must searched all records where the files actually are. In this case, King County.

With this request, We were able to retrieve a complete copy of Kevin Thomas Hulten’s computer. In his files, it was clear that Kevin Thomas Hulten was posting articles on the Sky Valley Chronicle as was former Seattle Times reporter Christopher Schwartzen ( now hiding out in Altamonte Springs Florida), and Brian Perry.

As result of Kevin Thomas Hulten’s hard drive, we have enough evidence to affirmatively state that John Pennington, former Snohomish County’s Director of Emergency Management ( fired after he caused 43 people to suffocate to death on March 24, 2014 in the Oso mudslides) and his “Boob Flashing Wife” ( http://www.seattleweekly.com/2013-01-16/news/gold-bar-s-mountain-meltdown/ ) and Crystal Hill Pennington ( convicted of bank fraud in 2005, using an alias, Crystal Berg), using a front man named Ronald Fejfar( who also uses various aliases of Ron Fabour, Ron Favour, Chet Rodgers former radio show host from 1970s), are the actual anonymous bloggers on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

The above defendants are being sued for Racketeering in U.S. Federal District Court with all cases pending as today (3/12/2016), and with more people intervening, it’s unlikely that these cases will go away anytime soon.

As our readers can imagine, we weren’t surprised to learn that Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda Loen abruptly resigned yesterday only after the City lost a public records case totaling over $30,000 in attorney fees and over at least $200,000 in penalities. With more lawsuit comings, it’s likely to total over $ 1,000,000.00 or more after Joe Beavers and Gold Bar’s former clerk Penny Brenton are deposed next month.

According to Brenton, Beavers ordered her to misappropriate public resource to write Bar complaints. An issue the City is being sued for in US Federal Court.

And poor little Crystal Hill Pennington, we hear, is getting her 3rd divorce, and she hasn’t even reached forty years of age yet. But from an October 30, 2015, Gold Bar Reporter U Tube video, she looks ten years older than anyone of us-  and from the video she looks like a battered woman.

But hey, “birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine….”  Just look at who she married, John E. Pennington.

Poor Ronald Fejfar, he willingly step into the biggest pile of shit thinking he would get political favors from uneducated bums like Aaron Reardon,  John Pennington, Crystal Hill and Chris Schwartzen, but instead he’s being sued for Racketeering and defamation with more lawsuits on the way in state court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snohomish County’s trash can





 

 

 



Lying thief police officer must be a prerequisite for being hired inside the Snohomish County Sherriff’s Office, leaving us to conclude that Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is where the trash hides.

David Fontenot is a proud member of Snohomish County’s Brady Cop List, otherwise known as the ” dirty cop list.”

Dave-Fontenot-LinkedIn-2016-02-06-15-02-48

Adding insult to injury, David Fontenot

After Lori Shavlik was found NOT GUILTY, David Fontenot had the audacity to approach her, while the recorder was running, stating ” It wasn’t my choice to prosecute you” as Ms. Shavlik was in tears after being notified that the jury believed that she was not guilty of the crimes Mark Roe and his criminal counterpart Adam Cornell tried to charge her with.

The above picture of David Fontenot is redacted because it has a picture of a minor girl. I often wonder how any of these people can sleep at night knowing that they just conspired to harm someone’s daughter.

Whether its attorney Michael Kenyon covering up as a political favor John Pennington’s rape of a five year old child from Cowlitz County in 1992, or David Fontenot and Mark Roe’s conspiracy to harm Lori Shavlik, we citizens must band together to expose the cockroaches where they roam, inside government offices.

And RCW 42.56 ( Washington State’s Public Records Act) is our best tool in exposing the cockroaches where they roam.  I enjoy reading emails, text messages, and phone records and our readers should request as many records necessary to hold these bastards responsible for the their criminal conduct before they imprison half the population.

Gold Bar residents threaten to Recall Linda “High as a Kite” Loen

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

 

The Washington State Auditor’s Office cited the City of Gold Bar for misappropriation of public funds for the 4th year in a row. Since 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s public officials, including Crystal Hill Pennington ( a.k.a Berg, convicted of bank fraud in 2005), Joe Beavers, and now Linda ” High as a Kite” Loen have been stealing from the City’s water funds to pay attorney Michael Kenyon ( Kenyon Disend) to continue covering up computer crimes committed by disgraced former Snohomish County Department of Emergency political appointee John E. Pennington.

One onlooker described new Gold Bar Councilmember Kendall Wallace’s face as ” as white as a ghost” as residents crowded city hall on Tuesday demanding answers as to why the City of Gold Bar is now facing a water rate increase of 271 %. 


Loen

Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda Loen, a proven failure, who seems to be more interested in smoking pot instead of doing her job.


080917-131233-460007

One resident screamed ” We need to Recall Linda Loen! ”  The concerned and pissed off Gold Bar citizen need not worry because a Recall Petition is being drafted against Linda Loen, and Florence Davi Martin ( who also voted to misappropriate public funds to continue funding the criminal racketeering crimes committed by attorney Michael Kenyon and John E. Pennington).   We are awaiting the Washington State Auditor records for much needed evidence to make sure the Recall against Linda Loen sticks. But Loen can be assured that its coming! 100 % for certain. 

The Department of Health rejected the City’s ” Beaverized”  water comp plan last year, as Joe Beavers fraudulently claimed that he was an ” Engineer” and inferred that he was capable of making adjustments to the water plan without a licensed Washington State Engineer involved.  A complaint against Joe Beavers was filed with the Dept. of Licensing and Joe Beavers was ORDERED to stop referring to himself as an Engineer.

Then the Department of Health issued a DEMAND for the City to produce a valid water comp plan and the Washington State Auditor again ORDERED the City to stop stealing from the City’s water fund to fund litigation.  Litigation that is now linked to helping Attorney Michael Kenyon and G. Geoffrey Gibbs covering up their little Racketeering scandal committed in 2008.

G. Geoffrey Gibbs, attorney Michael Kenyon, Sandra Sullivan ( aka Meadowcraft), Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington and John E. Pennington are amongst several criminal racketeers’ being sued in United States Federal District Court.


 

A copy of the Racketeering Complaint explaining the criminals conduct is nicely stated in the RICO suit filed in US Fed Court. Click below

See  http://twitdoc.com/view.asp?id=240270&sid=55E6&ext=PDF&lcl=block-v-WSBA-RICO.pdf&usr=SkyValleyNews&doc=294503385&key=key-GqDGvN4pGjxOWy5LnziT


The city claims that the purpose of the water rate fee amendment is to fund badly needed repairs to the water system’s aging infrastructure. However, the City left out the fact that its been misusing Gold Bar water funds – over $1,000,000.00 – to fund litigation to protect attorney Michael Kenyon’s criminal conduct nicely outlined in the RICO suit filed in Us Federal Court on December 28, 2015.  See link above.

Gold Bar resident Toni Jurin stated “My understanding is that well four was undrinkable; that there was way too much arsenic in it and that’s why we’re mixing it with well three,” “Sooner or later that problem has to be resolved.”

 “Our water quality is good. We had one hit of .01 milligrams per liter on arsenic in well four,” John Light said. 

Better question for John Light is ” since he doesn’t live in Gold Bar, how would you know? After all the city uses bottled water inside City Hall.”

Six Gold Bar residents demanded a town hall meeting before any rate increase occurs. 

Councilmember Davi  ” Cupcake” Martin responded by issuing condescending remarks to citizens saying ” we’ve already held meetings”. 

There’s only one problem for Davi “Cupcake” Martin, the City violated Open Public Meetings Act when it held these “secret meetings without publication.”

 the city held workshops and presentations with very limited attendance. According to the city, a workshop was held on Sept. 22 and a presentation by a water-rate consultant was held on Oct. 6. Further council discussion was held on Nov. 3, Dec. 1 and Dec. 15, all of which were publicized on the city’s website. After the Dec. 1 council meeting, a mass-mailer was sent to the city’s water customers, apprising them of the proposed rate change. 

“Our job as the city is to supply good water, and unfortunately we have a very, very old infrastructure that needs a lot of work,” Martin said. “The point is, we’re stuck between a rock and a hard spot. We have good water now, but it needs to be maintained. We can’t maintain it on what we’re charging now.”

Steven Fore, who owns Alpine Adventures, an outdoor white water recreation business on U.S. 2 stated that he has concerns over the city’s strategy, which appears to him to be completely ineffective. He has no problem paying an increased rate, he said, but the city’s current approach will not solve the problem. 

Ms. Fore’s statement about strategy is related to how Gold Bar has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 hiding racketeering crimes committed in emails.

The Supreme Court has decided to review the emails in question, but since we already know what’s behind the curtain inside those emails, we’re going to hold off publishing what it is that the City has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water fund covering up… all for a pedophile named John E. Pennington ( fired from Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management on January 1, 2016, after he killed 43 Oso residents in the most preventable loss of life natural disaster in Washington State’s history).

Steve Fore admonished the council for “chasing away” Councilmember Lee Hodo, who resigned in December. Hodo has extensive background in engineering, Fore said, and is well-equipped to handle the current issues. He referred to Hodo as “the exact person you need to fix the problem.”

Don’t worry Mr. Fore, the City of Gold Bar is being sued for Racketeering and our hope is that the criminals who have been misusing our resources for their personal gain will be locked up behind bars once we start taking depositions.

Tracy Cotterill said “This sounds like it’s bigger than we are… Has anyone thought about PUD? “

“It’s our town. It’s not your town,”“Do we need to start putting petitions out? Would that do it? If we put out a petition demanding that we be allowed to vote on any water increases, would you let us in then?” Steve Fore said.

Bravo Mr. Fore, its time that others lend a helping hand to those of us who have been fighting the massive Racketeering cancer that Washington State Bar Board of Governor and number Snohomish County criminal G. Geoffrey  Gibbs and attorney Michael Kenyon have perpetrated upon our community all in an effort to cover up the criminal racketeering conduct of Crystal Hill Pennington ( Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005), John E. Pennington ( former DEM Sno Co who is linked to missing children  all over the Pacific Northwest) and attorney Michael Kenyon’s criminal conduct.
