UPDATE: December 28, 2015, GOLD BAR’S MAYOR JOE BEAVERS SUED FOR RACKETEERING ( RICO).
Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers trying to intimidate a public official, Washington Coalition for Open Government President and council member Toby Nixon.
Gold Bar’s acting Mayor Joe Beavers issues declaration of War on founding fathers basic Constitutional principles on government transparency and calls Gold Bar Reporter Block a ” Boston Jew Bitch.”
So not only is Joe Beavers an anti-Semite, but he’s also pushing Adolf Hitler’s principles of fascism.
Those of you who know me know that I have almost zero respect for religion or religious people with a few exceptions. One exception is Washington Coalition for Open Government President Toby Nixon.
For me religion equates to hate ( Joe Beavers), violence ( Crystal Hill Pennington, who abused a six year old child in 2008 with the assistance of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe), and where pedophiles ( Snohomish County’s former Director of Emergency Management, John E. Pennington) hide.

Last week, Washington Coalition for Open Government’s President posted comments about Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers Declaration of War on Washington State’s Public Records Act which stated:
I found out yesterday that the former mayor of Gold Bar, Joe Beavers, has decided to use the Public Records Act to take retribution against me because of my advocacy for government transparency. He has been making a series of large records requests to the city of Kirkland, most recently for all emails I have sent or received since January 2009, and previously for such things as all emails sent and received by city volunteers. He explicitly said that his goal was to make the volunteers so mad that they would put pressure on me and the rest of the city council to become opponents of the PRA.
It’s sad and most unfortunate that former Mayor Beavers has chosen to do exactly what he at one time complained to the legislature that people should not do — use the PRA as a weapon rather than as a tool for accountability. But regardless, I will not be intimidated into supporting the former mayor’s position that government agencies should have the discretion to reject records requests from individuals they subjectively deem to be “vexatious”, no matter how vexatious he becomes. The Kirkland city council and staff created our Public Records Ordinance specifically to deal with this kind of eventuality, and we will use the provisions of the ordinance to manage response to the former mayor’s requests just as we do with all other large requests.
Some of our readers may not know that in late 2014 Gold Bar’s current Mayor Linda Loen resigned but agreed to show up to Gold Bar city council meetings held biweekly. Since that time, Joe Beavers ( a non-elected official) has been in City Hall daily tampering with our public records. Our counsel said ” this amounts to thwarting the democratic rights of the voters and Linda Loen’s conduct amounts to Racketeering. ”
One Gold Bar resident said ” Linda Loen is a little mouse with no backbone . . . I hope you sue her.”
One open government attorney from Olympia said ” Joe Beavers is a demented old man who sits around tampering with public records to hide his crimes. Sad way to spend one’s retirement.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves with one exception, ” Beavers is also misusing our money to hide his crimes.”
We have a suggestion for Joe Beavers: perhaps Saudi Arabia would be a better place to declare home because its clear that You have no respect for our laws and the First Amendment to the Constitution.
