After suffering through yet another Ozzie Knezovich and Jay Pounder Sheriff’s Report Anti-Shea Podcast, I am still unable to establish exactly what “The Event” is as far as Jay Pounder is concerned. Was it when he was finally able to get the MSM to listen to his story about Matt Shea? Is the ongoing battle his way of reaching out to, “Patriots who each and every day dedicate their lives to waking up the hearts and minds of the American people.”, and each new story or podcast is a part of “The Event”? Is his Anti-Shea Crusade a part of his disdain for government? Or is it simply a matter of Jay Pounder, like John Smith having a book in the works bout delivering us from evil?
I have my own theory about “The Event” put that theory has more to do with troubling psychological issues then Matt Shea, the Government, or the Economy.
Some might be wondering what the heck I’m talking about; well it has to do with Jay Pounders old Prepare Spokane Blog which he entitled “The Event”, a blog in which he expressed his opinions about many things including…amazingly “The Art of War”.
One of the interesting things about Jay Pounders old Blog is that it bares a strong resemblance to John Smith’s old Blog which helped to expose Smith’s as of yet bothering him White Supremacist beliefs.
Jay Pounder, being the type wanting to make sure he got the word out even wrote a book about “The Event” entitled “The Pill” which didn’t do too well but perhaps his Matt Shea book will do better…who knows.
I didn’t bother to spend the $9 to buy Pounder’s book, I figured I read and copied enough from his Blog. If you are interested you can read some of it at this link.
With young Progressives Ben Wick and Brandi Peetz taking over the reins at the City of Spokane Valley it will be interesting to see how the money flows and to whom. Along with budget issues the likelihood of disagreement and vitriol between Council Members is pretty high and will likely require someone to step up to try and referee. Although Brandi Peetz’s father Bob West is a former referee the fact he was fired from his position with the City of Spokane for among other things “Electioneering” for his daughter would be a pretty poor choice, besides, rest assured a lot of Bob’s time will be tied up trying to dig up dirt on Council Members who don’t agree with his daughter.
The “Progressive Voters Guide” may give a good indication of where the City of the Valley is headed from the standpoint of spending.
“and building a community center and marketplace across from city hall. She also wants to implement a detailed city economic plan that focuses on increasing tourism dollars and using a retail improvement strategy.”
I don’t think there is any question who would end up paying for a community center and marketplace across from City Hall, and it would be nice to see exactly what her economic plan actually is and who would benefit.
Some might remember that during Peetz’s campaign against Michelle Rasmussen she continually touted her budgeting experience while Vice President of the SCC Student Body and Office Manager at Stahl Optical. She even doubled down on her assertion in several Facebook interactions, including on one of her favorite Facebook Pages, the “Tri-County Voice”.
Having the responsibility of being responsible for taxpayers dollars is a big responsibility and is one of the reasons the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission requires candidates to file an F-1 (“Personal Financial Affairs Statement”) so taxpayers have an opportunity to take a look at how a candidate handles their own financial affairs and identify any possible conflicts of interest that might show up if the candidate is elected to office.
On April 15, 2019 Brandi Peetz filed her F-1 with the PDC a copy of which I have linked below for folks to take a look at.
What I found interesting regarding Deputy Mayor Peetz’s F-1, if I’m not mistaken, is that for some reason she neglected to report some indebtedness that ended up with those pesky Debt Collection Agencies having to take her to court for payment (Associated Credit Services Inc, and Valley Empire Collections). Yes, small amounts but she needs to make sure in her new position that the City of Spokane Valley continues with a good Bond and Credit rating.
When I look at the fact that on January 30, 2019 Brandi Peetz loaned her campaign $2,000.00 at 5% interest, I can’t help but wonder not only where that money came from but also whether or not she would have been better off spending the money on some of her debt, of course she will get a 5% return on her dollar at some point, so maybe it was a good investment.
Brandi Peetz likes to point out that she is an “Independent Small Business Owner” apparently owning “Various Small Businesses”.
It would be great if she does have experience running a small business, but I’ll be darned if I can find any small businesses she has owned, and I didn’t notice any reported in her F-1. I was able to find that both she and Chad were involved in someway with Le-Vel, but her whole family was and I’m not real sure her Le-Vel experience would qualify when it comes to managing a City Budget.
Brandi Peetz is a lot like her father Bob West from the standpoint of using different Facebook Accounts one account she uses my be an indicator of what she has planned as far as the City of Spokane Valley Budget is concerned…a big raise.
From the a “disagreement and vitriol” perspective, it looks like Brandi’s campaign manager C Richard Wilhite has given us a good start on it.
The Jury is out on the answer to that question as we wait patiently for her to take office. However, while we wait the Condon administration continues to try and hide and cover-up facts the public should know about his administration.
Just prior to the arrest of Jonathan Andersen on charges of murdering Misty Hirsch I received information that Andersen was released from jail on charges of Felon In Possession of a Firearm prior to the murder and never should have been released but problems with SPD’s Patrol Anti-Crime Team (PACT) lead to Andersen’s release. Other media did do some stories regarding Anderson’s release prior to the murder however did not have all of the information surrounding his release.
On 7/12/2019 8:41:03 AM I submitted this Public Records Request to the City of Spokane in an effort to corroborate information I had previously received regarding Andersen’s release. Yes, you read that correctly July 12, 2019 five months ago.
Yesterday December 12, 2019 in partial response to my July PRR I received this heavily redacted email between SPD PACT Officer Shane Oien and Spokane County Deputy Prosecuting Thomas Treppiedi claiming the contents of the email were redacted based upon Attorney Client Privilege.
The effort on the part of Mayor Condon, City Attorney Mike Ormsby, Chief Craig Meidl, and others to try and cover-up the facts left me with no other choice but to file this appeal of the redactions.
Do I know exactly what the email conversation between Oien and Treppiedi was? Well of course I do but that isn’t the point, the point is the Condon Administration continues to try and cover-up the facts as it has throughout his administration and with the assistance of City Attorney Mike Ormsby who instead of representing the Citizens of Spokane is doing everything he possibly can to protect Condon’s backside.
As it stands right now, all Public Records Requests which demonstrate Condon’s mismanagement are being delayed and delayed until David Condon has a chance to escape and will fall directly on the plate of Nadine Woodward. Mayor Elect Woodward must know by now just how terrible the City of Spokane Human Resource Department has been under the leadership of Christine Cavanaugh and Meghann Steinolfson. Cavanaugh who has many, many complaints against her and the Public Records Release of those complaints has been delayed and delayed for months. One possible replacement for Cavanaugh is Thomas Bartridge who has a Human Resources Background and is assisting Woodward on her transition team, however if Steinolfson remains nothing will change.
As far as Chief Meidl remaining as Woodward’s Chief of Police, if she doesn’t know by now why he should go she soon will.
Like politics anywhere local
politics can get down and dirty, and as we know from recent investigations of
politics at the national level other nations will utilize fake Facebook and
Twitter Accounts to affect the outcome of national elections. The same is true
with our local election process where individuals will create fake Facebook and
Twitter accounts to defame, degrade, and lie about various individuals who may
or may not be associated in some way with a political candidate.
While working on another story I was
able to establish that at the local level perhaps the most prolific individual
to use fake Facebook accounts is Sharon Linnae Dust a 53-year-old female and
great aunt of Mr. Caleb Collier’s children from his former marriage to Alyssa Venable
(nee Hundeby). Sharon Dust is an RN who works along with Collier’s ex-wife at
Latah Services Inc, an elder care business owned by Patricia M. Groth.
Over a period of approximately two
years Sharon Dust has cyberstalked a number of individuals including myself
using various fake Facebook accounts including but not limited to the following;
Sharon Dust’s most recent fake
Facebook account is under the name Lisa Harrison and she has been very active
on the Tri-County Voice Facebook page, a page moderated by Dust’s close
associate Tanner Rowe and from which I was booted from yesterday for exposing
the truth a FB page where Dust was able to find allies in her cyberstalking
I want to correct a minor mistake
Lesley Haskell made in some posts she made while she was attacked by Sharon
Dust on the Tri-County Voice Facebook page. Lesley Haskell was understandably
under the impression that the fake account was Tanner Rowe’s wife Emilee Combs
as both Mr. and Mrs. Rowe interact with Sharon Dust. Emilee Combs is a member
of the Spokane Regional Issues and Politics FB group and despite her vitriol is
allowed to post in that FB group.
Sharon Dust is very closely allied
with Bob West and his daughter Brandi Peetz and has bragged about a
relationship with Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich in private messages I
have obtained from an individual who has come forward at their own risk of
being cyberstalked or harassed by Dust and others.
I hope this helps to correct the
record and provide some factual insight regarding politics, using messy
divorces to defame character for political and personal hatred motives, and
just how low some people will go.
