So while people are missing & possibly dying, definitely dead, all the county can do is cry because they can’t have ALL of the attention & that big meany Marcus Deyerin is picking on them.

Sounds like NW Incident management team (specifically Marcus Deyeirn ) needs a firm reminder that SnoCo is the lead on this incident. Marcus is treating Shari badly and undermining our release of information efforts. This is unacceptable. If you are able to address this with him, that would be great. If you’d like me to handle it, please let me know and I’ll be happy to do so.

These are just some of the emails I come across in my public records & it just makes me sick to my stomach. Of course she spelled his name wrong too which speaks levels about their education…
While people are buried alive, not even 48 hours after the slide they are already fighting about who gets to say what or cheese for the cameras.
MAYBE if the DEM would’ve been there instead of teaching a class on the east coast they would have a “right” to steal the show but the folks who were HERE, the one’s who stepped up ~ They have every right to try to get news out about what is going on.
This isn’t or wasn’t just a “photo op” it was families, not knowing if loved ones were dead or alive, real human beings who really did not give two craps about WHERE the info came from as long as they got some kind of info.
The thing I find the most disturbing is that all of the metadata has been stripped off of the county’s employees emails… On the day of the slide so folks wouldn’t know where Pennington was, even though it clearly shows he was emailing from his phone, & we have more then proven that he was on one of his little govt teaching gigs at the expense of taxpayers over on the east coast.
All of this had nothing to do with the people who lost their lives, it is all about covering their sorry asses.
The saddest most disgusting thing about ALL of this? Not only did the County Council discuss a buyout of that property in 2004, FEMA also had a mitigation plan in place in 2010 to buy out the homeowners in that area, on the very same days that Aaron Reardon, was meeting with the very same builders involved in the Wellington issue & possibly with the Oso builders & John Pennington was running interference for Reardon…

Good Morning Nancy.
I would like to set up a meeting with Executive Reardon and a few of the local builders to be held at Pacific Ridge Homes. I would like to have a meeting from 3PM to 5PM. Can you let me know a couple of dates that would work for the Executive?

The Builder of Choice.
FEMA was trying to mitigate a buyout plan at this time, instead politics & money won out & additional homes were built anyway… or more correctly: Deathtraps were built.
So what happened to the builders? They went bankrupt, as it should’ve been. but not one of the ones above, they are still protected by political influence. Sadly no amount of money will bring back the people who lost their lives but hey the media whores got their attention…
