Thank you, Mary!
“Years of mismanagement and stealing from Gold Bar’s water fund is the main cause for the 271 % increase in the water rates in Gold Bar this year”, a former insider told the Gold Bar Reporters.
In 2012, Gold Bar’s then Mayor Joe Beavers, stole from Gold Bar’s water fund ( Enterprise funds such as water funds can not be touched for its unintended purposes), to write, edit and draft a Ballot question ( tax hike to fund litigation) asking the voters to help former Mayor Joe Beavers pay back what he stole from Gold Bar’s water funds.
All in an effort to cover up Snohomish County public officials criminal conduct of domestic spying games disseminated via Gold Bar’s public email.
In early 2013, the Gold Bar Reporter requested and gained access to Washington State Auditor’s( SAO) emails between then Mayor Joe Beavers and the SAO confirming what we call “Joe Beaver’s little tax fraud scheme.”
This after the voters of Gold Bar “rejected” Joe Beavers and council member Bob Strom’s 2012 little fraud scheme to defraud the voters failed, Joe Beavers and the Gold Bar city council, Florence Davi Martin, Bob Strom, and Kenneth Ware, decided the best way to pay back what Joe Beavers stole was to create a Storm Water Drain Fund.
One Enterprise Fund to cover up the stealing of the water fund ( Enterprise Fund). According to our counsel, these actions amount to criminal racketeering.
RCW 42.56, PUBLIC RECORDS, EXPOSED GOLD BAR’S MAYOR JOE BEAVERS FRAUD
According to the public emails from late 2012, between Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers and the SAO, Beavers stated in a public email that the Gold Bar city council and he created the Storm Water Drain Fund to pay back the missing water funds. Mayor Joe Beavers went further in his public emails by stating ” that’s not what we told the voters, but that’s what we did…”
Clear fraud, amounting to racketeering, according to our counsel.
According to Joe Beavers and SAO email communication obtained via RCW 42.56, the purpose of this new Storm Water Drain Fund was to pay back what Joe Beavers and the city council stole from Gold Bar’s water funds. All in an effort to assist Joe Beavers hatred of the open government laws.
Luckily for Gold Bar’s taxpayers, Joe Beavers was stupid enough to put his racketeering crimes into a public email between him and SAO in late 2012.
The amount of the Gold Bar water theft equals well over $750,000. 00.
According to Gold Bar’s current litigation bill, Gold Bar’s current Mayor Linda Loen is also misusing City funds to assist Joe Beavers’s fraudulent scheme by raising the water rates to cover up his theft of over $750,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water money to fund litigation ( to cover up John Pennington’s criminal conduct inside public emails).
Recently, a Whistleblower blew the whistle… more to come.
How Washington State’s Sunshine Laws (Public Records Act) Exposed a Massive Racketeering Enterprise inside Snohomish County, Washington, involving a George Bush Jr. political appointee, who caused the deaths of thousands
John E. Pennington, exposed in September 2015, See https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/09/17/snohomish-countys-dark-secrets-uncovered/
As of today, the City of Gold Bar, mainly by then Mayors’ Crystal Hill (nee Berg, bank fraud 2005) and Joe Beavers ( cited by Washington State Auditor’s Office in 2013, 2014) have been stealing from Gold Bar’s water funds to pay the law office of Kenyon Dissend to cover up their own criminal conduct involving domestic spying, and illegal dissemination of mental health records of a Massachusetts resident who happens to be related to a Gold Bar Reporter.
Three months ago, the Gold Bar Reporters broke the story on Michael Kenyon’s interest in funding the criminal Enterprise to protect his own law firm. See https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/

HOW RCW 42.56 EXPOSED THE LARGREST RACKET IN WASHINGTON STATE’S HISTORY
Last month, Gold Bar Reporter Block got lucky when King County decided to do the right thing, comply with RCW 42.56, and release records confirming that Snohomish County’s number one political bum, John E. Pennington, a corrupt police officer from Duvall Washington named Lori Batiot and one corrupt King County Sheriff’s Officer, Cary Coblantz ( who with no surprise is assigned to the City of Shoreline where Gold Bar’s former city attorney Margaret King now works), assisted in the illegal tracking of Gold Bar Reporter and her partner traveling overseas from London Heathrow Airport to Seattle.
Why and how a corrupt police named Lori Batiot ( also a Windermere real estate agent) decided to get involved was exposed in our August 29, 2015 Edition. See https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/08/29/from-barista-to-the-city-of-duvall/
Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005), Sno Co Director John E. Pennington ( who has been on paid leave since he caused the deaths of 43 people in Oso Washington) and Lori Batiot are listed Racketeering defendants.
Last month King County turned over records confirming that a corrupt police officer from Duvall Washington obtained the same records from former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington. A former insider said ” looks like the Penningtons’ cat is out of the bag. The cat that the City council and Joe Beavers misappropriated over $750,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water money to cover up.” as he laughed.
Last month, we received public records from the City of Duvall again documenting that corrupt Duvall officer Lori Batiot and former Snohomish County Director John Pennington ( on paid leave from Sno County once he killed 43 resident in the Oso mudslides) were trying to feed another story about the Gold Bar Reporter to John Pennington’s friend at the Seattle newspaper “ The Stranger.”
Looks like “ The Stranger” had second thoughts after seeing Lori Batiot’s criminal history reports.
Gold Bar’s Water Rate Study, an increase by 271 % cover up the criminal conduct of Snohomish County’s Public Officials:
Just like John Pennington, Crystal Hill Pennington and Joe Beavers’s Sky Valley Chronicle blog posts, they stole the child picture from another website
During the summer of 2012, Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers told the press that the City of Gold Bar was “bankrupt”, but since Joe Beavers’s false press release, the City has misappropriated over $400,000.00 of the City’s water funds, and created a diversion of a “hacking theft.” We contacted the City of Portland (Oregon) police officer said was ” more likely an internal theft.”
Mayor Joe Beavers fed a “ hacking ‘ story to the press in 2013, but according to the Portland Police Dept., Joe Beavers so called “hackers” were in fact given the passcodes to access Gold Bar’s bank accounts. This triggered Bank of America to have second thoughts about paying the City of Gold Bar for Joe Beavers’s so called “hacking theft.”
70 % of all theft inside stores are committed by personnel, and we know from a former council member (2009) that Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud) and former Gold Bar clerk Laura Kelly ( fired for theft in July 2012) were in fact stealing from the City.
The 2014 SAO’s Report held that there’s $200,000 missing from Gold Bar’s funds and not one city employee can state where it went.
After our investigation yielded that Gold Bar’s so called “hacking” was more than likely internal theft from a Gold Bar insider, we wrote a letter to the American Association of Washington Cities, after it continues to withhold public records claiming that the FBI in Portland is investigating what Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers continues to falsely state on the public record:
Mr. Bryan –
Thank you for your response. Let me give you a little hint. I had my private investigators obtain and contact the City of Portland because I believe based on the evidence that I reviewed from Portland and from the City of Gold Bar that Joe Beavers so called “ hacking” was an internal job.
Police records from Portland stated that a man that fits the description of John Pennington to a Tee while in Portland gave Beavers so called “ hackers’ the passwords to access the online accounts in Gold Bar. It took some time to gather those records, but we did, and made contacts, and from this we believe that the man the so called hackers said called himself Joe Beavers was John Pennington.
Let’s face it Mr. Bryan, the last audit report was clear that there’s 200K missing from Gold Bar’s city accounts and not one city employee can explain where it went. Let’s use an analogy. If I had someone accessed my account online and depleted 200K over an extended period of time and then lied to the public as Joe Beavers clearly did as evidenced by the Portland Police reports, Bank of America (BOA) would have reason to believe that it was an internal job too.
Simple common sense.
Let’s add the fact that the so called hackers had the account numbers and passwords, according to the Portland PD. In fact, the police reports from Portland suggest that this was a major red flag for BOA. Duh? And let’s face it, BOA has some great auditors, because they have an incentive to make sure fraudsters ( like former Mayor Crystal Hill Berg, bank frauder 2005) are brought to justice.
If I had 200K missing from my accounts, and then tried to cover up the theft by creating a diversion, I suspect that BOA might have some reservations about paying the claim as they clearly did in Gold Bar two years ago.
Now, provide me with a copy of the public record pursuant to RCW 42.56 you are claiming was provided by the FBI in native format with metadata, because based on the police files from Portland that I reviewed, and my private investigators files, Gold Bar’s so called hacking was an internal job. Again, all I can do is weigh the evidence that I received and reviewed under the PRA, and I believe what the BOA believes, Gold Bar’s so called theft was an internal job.
