Derek Kilmer, when he was WA State’s Senator was contacted to help correct the way citizens who are Retired and or Retired due to disability were being defrauded by a county assessor, James Avery. James Avery was defrauding these old and disabled citizens from their constitutional rights as defined by Article 7, Section 10. See James Avery is defrauding Kitsap Citizens Unknown to me at the time of my contact with Senator Kilmer was that he was also on WA State’s “budget committee”. So clearly he faced a dilemma —- help the retired and disabled get their constitutional property tax relief … OR… let the fraud continue because it brings in additional revenue … As a memeber of the state’s “budget committee” the more revenue taken by the state from its citizens makes his job of ‘balancing the budget’ easier. Said another way, Senator Kilmer was to either insure state entities obey the law…. OR …. allow the fraud to continue because it brings in revenue and makes his task on the “budget committee” easier. It’s about the “law” or “taking in money.”…. the law, the MONEY…. the law….NOPE… it is the MONEY.
Just the other day I received a phone call that informed me that the now US Representative Kilmer was conducting a phone conference with his constituents….. when the conversation was open to questions I, of course, pressed #7 to get in the cue to ask Kilmer if, with his new duties, he would now revisit the fraud upon Retired and Disabled….. I was never allowed to pose that question but was invited to leave my voice question after the call…. I left that message and Representative Kilmer has yet to respond.
