What Lovick’s Administration Really Thinks About the Tulalip Tribes

CORRECTION: We had earlier reported that Peter Camp did not have a law degree. The error came after I had read over 4000 emails, somehow I transposed the name in the WSBA search engine. He is in fact licensed to practice law since 1984 which makes his snide little comments somehow even more egregious. He really should know better then most but it is indicative of how the county govt views us, almost a perfect illustration in fact.

We received a partial installment of a public records request and we horrified at what we found.

I think we all remember that classic fail when Lovick tried to infer that Dave Somers had made an inappropriate comment regarding the Tulalip Tribes. The Tribe wanted nothing to do with it, and they said so publicly.

It also gave us voters an insight as to who the Herald endorsed since they ran the story front page to try to discredit Somers.

If either the Herald or Lovick had any knowledge about the tribe they would’ve laughed as hard as I did when I read their story, and since the Tulalip Tribes are one of their biggest advertisers, you would think they would’ve gotten the Tulalip Tribes’ side of the story.

They sure fixed it quickedly split as soon as the tribe got upset though.

The problem with SnoCo to date is that the voters thought when Reardon made his disgraceful exit that things would get better  but they have gotten far far worse.

Lovick had the chance to come in, sweep out all the left over Reardon trash and start brand new but he was put in place along with Ericks to make sure that all the backdoor deals Reardon’s office had started or were involved in stayed safe.

So somehow a Reardon flunkie named Peter Camp ended up becoming an administrative land use judge. For reasons we haven’t figured out yet, Mark Ericks, Peter Camp and Clay White seem to be running the land use permits, decisions and hearings when we clearly have a dept that covers it.

I was going through the records and seeing Ericks and Camp were mocking someone:

The question remains as to why they felt it was appropriate to mock a tribal official in a public record, but when the tribe is handing out money these ingrates are first in line with their hands out and their tails wagging.

It is unclear who the tribes are endorsing for county executive or if they even endorse any candidates but I don’t think emails like this will help Lovick’s cause.

It is crystal clear that Lovick is absolutely out of control of his own “administration” or he just doesn’t care how they act, what they say and most certainly what they do…

It would be wise of the tribes to take a close look at who is actually endorsing John Lovick and be very watchful
