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

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.
