Gold Bar Washington Mayor William Clem caught falsifying state filings

Over the last couple of months, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem, a State Farm Agent, from Monroe Washington, has been drinking the polluted water from the City of Gold Bar.

William Clem, Mayor of Gold Bar

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me”  William Clem was referring to Association of Washington Cities attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, Michael Kenyon, and Amanda Butler


Early this year, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem sat down for a one on one meeting with the Gold Bar Reporter to discuss the state of affairs inside Gold Bar. During this meeting, William Clem confirmed that the former Mayor Joe Beavers, a convicted felon from Texas, had misappropriated over $1,500,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water funds to hide email communication.

 

According to one council member, Snohomish County obtained through electronic means medical records on the Gold Bar Reporter’s family members, and copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, and disseminated those files via email from Snohomish County Law’s clerk Barbara Johnson and Crystal Hill in March 2009.

After Crystal Hill and terminated/disgraced Director of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington took the illegally obtained medical files, they copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, attempting to create a fake identity.  Then Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay had Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Rodney Rochan pass the fake identity off the NCIS Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX).

William Clem said ” the lawyers refuse to return our records to the City of Gold Bar, and I’m going to hire a new lawyer to obtain a subpoena and have Gold Bar’s records returned.”

In one case, involving Shavlik v Gold Bar, Snohomish County Superior Court, William Clem admitted that Gold Bar’s public records officer, Bonnie Jones did knowingly tamper with Gold Bar’s public records by removing metadata from email communication sent from Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill and a clerk at Snohomish Law.

Bonnie Jones, aka Bonnie Scruggs, aka Bonnie Dierkson is a convicted felon from California and Hawaii, who was hand picked by Association of Washington Cities (AWC) to tamper with and hide public records inside the City of Gold Bar.

When William Clem was asked about why AWC would want to hide email communication,  Clem said ” to limit liability .”  When Clem was asked where the City was hiding Gold Bar’s public records, he said ” at the lawyers office in Issaquah, Washington.”

Michael Kenyon’s Office is located at 11 S Front St, Issaquah Washington.

In 2009, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005) was engaged in several extramarital affairs with former Executive Aaron Reardon, John E Pennington, and Gold Bar’s former police chief. Once source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office said ” Adam Cornell  and Sean Reay were also fucking Crystal. She was doorknob.”  Crystal Hill’s extramarital affairs were all with married men.

Three months ago, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers turned over for the first time Crystal Hill’s ACCESS criminal history searches performed after she abused a six year old child in her car, plead to criminally harassing another, and after she plead guilty to and was arrested for bank fraud.

It was a perfect storm for the poor little town of Gold Bar, as there is little that the City canT get over on the Gold Bar Reporter, a person with a Juris Doctorate degree, education in this case has proven vital to exposing Crystal Hill Pennington’s crimes against Gold Bar, and federal taxpayers ( as Hill falsified FEMA contracts totaling over $100,000.00 ).

In February 2018, Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar illegally withheld 585 public records from the Gold Bar Reporter for over five years, and penalties and attorney fees and cost exceed $1.5 million dollars, and this is just one case.


 

After Gold Bar’s new Mayor and Monroe Washington State Farm Agent William Clem admitted to several of us over dinner that he was being threatened by AWC and its attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto, we soon learned why William Clem had every reason to be extorted.

Last month, we learned from the Washington State Insurance Commissioner that William Clem was filing false statements with various state and local government offices, once inside Snohomish County Elections, Washington State Public Disclosure Commission and with the Washington State Insurance Commission.

Arrow6901 block_REDACTED  

When William Clem ran for Gold Bar’s uncontested Mayoral seat Clem listed his home address as Gold Bar.  But according to the Insurance Commission, William Clem’s home address is located in Everson Washington as of December 2017, not in Gold Bar as he claimed on his Public Disclosure filings and Insurance Commission filings listed Everson Washington in December 2017.

If we caught these false filings, so too did AWC and its attorneys.  Once inside source said ” Bill was threatened more than once inside public emails by Shannon Ragonesi…” Another source said ” Bonnie Jones was placed inside to continue the efforts of tampering with public records for Joe Beavers and AWC. She was hand picked by Beavers after it was apparent that Linda Loen was too high to function.”  Linda Loen was Gold Bar’s Mayor from January 2014 to March 16, 2016. On March 16 2018, the day Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar and its public records officers violated Gold Bar Reporter’s rights to access public records by withholding public records for over five years, Linda Loen abruptly resigned as the Mayor of Gold Bar, abandoned her home in Gold Bar and purchased with cash a new home located in Aberdeen Washington.  Linda Loen was unemployed the entire time she lived in Gold Bar, but all of the sudden purchases a new house with cash, abandoning her home in Gold Bar ( that still remains vacate as of today). Sounds like a pay off from our good friends at AWC and its attorneys.

Why Attorney Michael Kenyon decided to hide Gold Bar’s public records was simple. Michael Kenyon had helped Crystal Hill’s married squeeze in covering up his rape of a 5 year child in Cowlitz County Washington in 1992.

The Gold Bar Reporter was first to report on Michael Kenyon’s assisting John E. Pennington with quashing criminal charges after he violently beat a third trimester pregnant Duvall Council member.

 

 

 

 

 

Gold Bar’s water rates to increase by 271 %; public funds misused to cover up criminal conduct of former Mayors and Snohomish County political appointee

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.

See http://www.heraldnet.com/assets/pdf/DH121278718.PDF


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

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.

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.
