Snohomish county ~ The “Days of our Lives” & the drama goes on…

This post was started in July of 2013 I have been super busy so my blog has been being a bit neglected. I am trying to catch up on all of the info & documents that have been sent to me but please understand that some of the info is outside my scope of ability to do anything about. Also please do not email me from your job or use a employment related phone, even using your private email on a work computer puts you risk
July, 13,2013 Type in Snohomish Corrupt in your Google search bar….
1} Gold Bar Council Member Chris Wright is a wife beater but that never made the local paper.
On February 5, 2012, Seattle Times Reporter Emily Heffter published a false statement that Gold Bar council member Chris Wright does not have a criminal conviction for domestic violence. After the Gold Bar Reporters (GBR) contacted our new found Washington State open government supporters (thank all of you) the Seattle Times “recanted and revised” Heffter’s false statement. Information in this article, originally published Feb. 6, 2012 was corrected Feb. 9, 2012. A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that City Councilmember Christopher Wright had never been charged with domestic violence. A more detailed review of court records shows a domestic-violence assault conviction in 2007.
2} John Lovick our new acting County Executive asked the Feds to investigate the deaths at the Snohomish County Jail as soon as he knew he had the new position, nevermind that all of this happened under his “watch” SERIOUSLY???
The feds couldn’t investigate it themselves as soon as people started dropping dead all over the place? What other place do you know of where there have been that many deaths that DOJ hasn’t been on them like stink on spit? What other place has had that many deaths?
3} Plus these stories from the Freedom Foundation:
a} 2010:Debbie McPherson, a Snohomish County human resources manager settled for $600,000 after allegedly suffering sexual harassment and misconduct by male managers in the Planning Department.

Deborah McPherson, 59, said several top county officials including Deputy Executive Mark Soine, who resigned Monday, knew or should have known about misconduct by male managers in the Planning Department and failed to take action. The lawsuit also names the county official who investigated workplace complaints of harassment and discrimination, Mark Knudsen. Knudsen resigned in February days before an investigation concluded that he had prepared written reports in only about one-fourth of complaints over the past decade and in some cases completely lost records of employee complaints. Knudsen reported to Soine. The lawsuit is the latest in the fallout over complaints about the treatment of female staff members under former Planning Director Craig Ladiser. Ladiser resigned in August after an investigation concluded that he had exposed himself to a woman during a building-industry golf tournament. He faces assault charges in King County over the incident. McPherson said Tuesday she took legal action against the county only as a last resort. She said she complained to Ladiser, Knudsen and Human Resources Director Bridget Clawson, about a sexist office environment and retaliation against her for protesting women’s treatment, but that nothing was done. The lawsuit describes the Planning Department under Ladiser and his deputy Greg Morgan as a “Harley Club” where male managers routinely left work early, drank excessively, rode motorcycles together and gave each other preferential treatment in hiring and promotions. The complaint says that Morgan, who served as deputy director from 2006 to May 2009, boasted about his use of a sexual-performance drug, touched women inappropriately and forwarded e-mails with pictures of naked women from his work computer.

b} 2010: Jackie Hall and Dan Bly, Snohomish Corrections Deputies, filed a workplace complaint with Snohomish County’s Equal Employment Opportunity investigator. Each received $50,000 and resigned their jobs this summer as part of the agreement reached with the county. Mark Knudsen, the attorney who handled their EEO complaint, resigned from the county, after more than 10 years on the job.
c} 2013: Shannon Impett, a former death investigator at the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office, reached a half-million-dollar settlement over workplace retaliation.
d} 2013: Snohomish County Councilman Brian Sullivan plead guilty to a DUI in Skagit County and accepted various penalties, including jail time.
e} Such is the case in Snohomish County. A few months ago, we researched the Kay Kohler story, which we featured in this story and video. It exposed a situation where Snohomish County offered and paid $404,000 for part of Kay Kohler’s property, changed their minds on the valuation, and got a judgment to get most of the money back. In the end, Kay Kohler lost most of her family property and her compensation, and she spent far more on attorney’s fees than what she had been paid by Snohomish County. (From the Freedom Foundation)
4} Then we have this mess to contend with…
5} At least they have settled in one of the 10+ deaths at the county jail,
seeing as how she suffocated in her own sputum it was kind of hard for them to claim they weren’t at fault. Not only was she found dead in her cell but her body was already stiff by the time they found her.
EVERETT — A $1.3 million settlement has been reached in a damage claim filed on behalf of a woman who slowly died of a lung infection inside the…
6} I wonder why the Herald will report on petty theft but not the big ones going on at the Health Dept
EVERETT — A Snohomish County court clerk who handled cash payments made by young criminal defendants is now facing a felony theft charge for…
7} If all else fails & you are caught with your hand in the cookie jar you can just file a counter~claim to take the focus off of you like Everett City Councilman Ron Gipson did.
“The personnel problems in the juvenile lockup came to a head on Jan. 21, when administrators placed Gipson and Weathersby on administrative leave.” Details come from Vreeland’s letter, which describes Gipson and Weathersby of being “publicly escorted out of the facility in front of subordinates and co-workers.”

Published: Thursday, March 6, 2014, 12:01 a.m. Racism complaint lodged by Denney juvenile-corrections workers
EVERETT — Prosecutors are asking that a former Snohomish County employee be ordered to pay more than $15,000 to the United Way of Snohomish County as part his punishment for pocketing money earmarked for charity.Fredrick Bletson Jr., 61, also faces up to a year in jail after pleading… Date: 09/05/2013
9} Local NewEx-water manager charged with theft
SNOHOMISH — The former longtime manager at a private water system that serves more than 1,000 homes in unincorporated east Snohomish County is now charged with siphoning away more than $400,000 through theft. Date: 09/03/2013
10} Police officer sues Lake Stevens over ‘incompetence’
LAKE STEVENS – A Lake Stevens police officer filed a lawsuit against the city on Tuesday alleging that city officials destroyed his reputation and made him take the fall for their “incompetence and failures.” 02/12/14
LAKE STEVENS — A lawsuit filed last week accuses the Lake Stevens Police Department of retaliating against a police sergeant after she complained of sexual harassment. City officials deny the claim and say they plan to fight. 11/11/13
EVERETT — The Snohomish County Executive’s Office quietly has begun a reshuffling of employees at the county morgue, including plans to hire a manager to oversee operations and staff. The chief medical investigator at the… 11/03/13

  2. This place is like a buffet of buffoonery so sometimes it takes months to get it figured out! Or I’ll start a story & not have documentation & pick it up later. I get lots of “tips” from folks but most times no evidence or documentation so about 94 stories are just sitting waiting for proof.

    I do love that saying though… I have tried to warn these idiots to give me back my dogs, stop lying about me & then I will stop telling the truth about them but now I have nothing to lose, not good for them. I hope all is well with you, for some reason I am not getting anyone’s new posts 😦
