iepolitics has received another string of news tips…….
The deepest Needles sources, (yes Rick, they are turning on you) have alleged:
“Needles City Councilman Shawn Gudmundson owes the City of Needles $15,000 in arrears utility bills.”
“The proliferation of Red Envelopes is reaching alarming Numbers.”
“There are many accounts in arrears with some in the four to five thousand dollar range.”
A request for comment from Needles City Manager Rick Daniels and Councilman Shawn Gudmundson went without response.
This latest disclosure of racketeering in Needles City Hall comes on the heels of the xxxx scandal in which xxxx walked into the Needles Chamber of Commerce and tipped iepolitics that xxxxx owes the City of Needles $30,000 in arrears utility bills.
When questioned on the dias regarding xxx’s huge unpaid bill, no Needles City Council Member would refute xxxxx allegation, City Attorney John Pinkney actually confirming the story, recalling that he (Pinkney) had to recuse himself from working on the xxxxx case as xxxxx was a sitting Needles City Council Member, and that BB&K was contracted to handle the matter.
The Shawn Gudmundson episode is just another example of a Needles City Council Member apparently able to induce City Manager Rick Daniels and the Needles Public Utility Authority to, according to NPUA Board Member Terry Cambell:
“Write off bad debt”
This string of revelations is reportedly far from over and is apparently linked to Rick Daniels job performance as Needles City Manager, Shawn Gudmundson being one of Rick Daniels more outspoken supporters.
