PETE KAMPA’S CSDA OPPOSES RETAINING EMAIL PUBLIC ACCESS FOR A LONGER PERIOD – ANY SURPRISE?

Reading Time: 5 minutes



Saw the below article on the CSDA website this morning (5/8/19) and considering Peter Kampa’s reluctance to furnish pertinent information (that the public is supposed to have a right to obtain and review), this position by the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (CSDA) is of no real surprise – especially since Kampa has been a board director there for nearly 20 years.

Below is my last request for the “many emails” Kampa told the board and public at the March monthly BOD meeting he has sent in attempt to ascertain the current status of the STATE WATER RESOURCES CONTROL BOARD (SWRCB) NOTICE OF VIOLATION issued on September 28, 2017 for water right violations following two complaints to that agency in February and April of 2016 – that are still evidently unresolved.

Or, perhaps Kampa may already know what is coming and decided to move on to more lucrative management contract “feeding grounds” else where with his KAMPA COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS, LLC, KAMPACS, or KCS, (which ever you prefer), along with his clearly supportive CSDA?

Anyway, below is the third written request made to Office Manager Syndie Marchesiello at the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD on May 3, 2019: (Should also note, all the files contained in the Kampa folder (which could not be opened) had the same date – of when sent to me – rather than the original composition/transmittal date.

LATE KAMPA RESPONSE CAN NOT BE VIEWED

Syndie, unfortunately the above files furnished by current Lake Don Pedro Community Services District (LDPCSD) GM/TREASURER PETER KAMPA (after additional  written requests after the 10 day processing period from the original submittal) will not open on my computer advising that I must purchase new software in order to view them (the “trial option” does not function).  I do not believe this is a fair or even adequate response to my information request from two months ago – I should be able to read the material without further unnecessary delay or  additional personal financial cost.  I am aware Mr. Kampa is currently preparing to become a full time General Manager employee (with all rights and benefits of full time employment) of the Groveland CA CSD very soon (this month) yet according to a statement by one of our directors during the last Special Meeting of the LDPCSD Board of Directors on April 22nd, Kampa will actually remain as the LDPCSD GM/TREASURER until the middle of May.  (Apparently to confirm his new employment benefits in Groveland are secured and in place prior to leaving the LDPCSD ——- after five years of absolute fabrications of truth to  STATE OF CAIFORNIA WATER AGENCIES, state and federal granting authorities, and the general public at large, regarding VERY CLEAR Place of Use restrictions on Merced River water use contained in WL11395 (and illustrated on the OFFICIAL JUNE 1978 MID POU MAP ON FILE WITH THE SWRCB….. following the discovery by the State that the JUNE 1977 POU MAP was an intentional FAKE MAP submitted to expand the POU over forty years ago) which Pete Kampa was unequivocally aware of for over twenty years (during time of his first employment with the LDPCSD between 1994-1997) — yet Kampa completely disregarded these restrictions while attempting to provide FURTHER outside POU water service to LAFCO ANNEXATIONS he set up back in the 1990s along with expanding a SUBSIDIZED GROUNDWATER REPLACEMENT PROGRAM to replace the Merced River water already illegally leaving the POU of WL11395 (subdivision and golf course) to expand that special benefit water service outside the POU of 11395. 

As you are aware, the Board of Directors at the March LDPCSD Board of Directors monthly meeting, suggested GM KAMPA send an email to the SWRCB requesting an update on the Notice of Violation issued September 28, 2017 for water right violation (complaints filed in 2016).  GM Kampa stated to the board that he had already sent many emails to the SWRCB requesting a Notice of Violation status update but had received no information and was afraid sending yet another email to the SWRCB might “make them mad”. 

I have been trying to obtain these “many emails” to the State Water Board since the March 2019 meeting without success yet now understand Pete Kampa is actually in the process of leaving the LDPCSD without honoring this information request (much less other requests the last few years for legitimate information regarding his nefarious activities).  Could you please make hard copies of these files purported to be the ones Pete Kampa referenced which supposedly had asked the STATE for information regarding the status of the SWRCB NOV (which was the topic of the March BOD meeting questioning when Kampa stated he had already sent many emails to the SWRCB regarding the WL11395 map issue without response from the state.)   Thanks, Lew

Currently only 30 days are required for retention then POOF! Gone from the office files. (COULD PETE KAMPA HAVE INTENTIONALLY REFUSED TO ANSWER THE PUBLIC INFORMATION REQUEST TO “RUN OUT THE 30 DAY CLOCK AND DESTROY EMAILS THAT CONTAINED INFORMATION HE DID NOT WANT THE PUBLIC TO SEE?) How convenient for those who play “foot loose and fancy free” with 40 year old California State Water license restrictions hindering LAFCO ANNEXATION developments in Lake Don Pedro PETE KAMPA set up over twenty years ago when starting his infamous water career here at the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD in California (1994-1997).

Anyway, only those in control of this CALIFUSION POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT truly know what is actually happening. Frankly, all I have observed is the DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT destroying the justice system of our STATE and COUNTRY with no responsibility or accountability for the criminal activities used to achieve their special interest goals which are clearly not in the best interests of legal American Citizens – REGARDLESS OF INDIVIDUAL DIVERSITIES WHICH ONLY MAKE US STRONGER!

CSDA ARTICLE ON PUBLIC AGENCY EMAIL RETENTION

Amendments Expected to AB 1184 (Gloria) Public Agency Email Retention

By Dillon Gibbons posted 26 days ago

As currently drafted AB 1184 (Gloria) will require all public agencies to retain ALL transmitted emails for two-years. To avoid mandate costs that might have been associated with the new retention requirements the bill was placed in the California Public Records Act (CPRA). However, this bill does not make any new disclosure requirements in the CPRA of those emails or provide any additional exemptions. Meaning, if the email would have been considered a public record prior to this legislation, it is still a public record, and those records that aren’t public records, such as an out of office email, would still not be a public record that would be required to be disclosed under the CPRA. This bill, as currently drafted,  does nothing other than require the storage of all emails for two-years. 

However, yesterday afternoon while meeting with Assemblyman Gloria’s staff I was informed that they are planning significant amendments to narrow the bill. They are working with the California News Publishers Association to amend the bill to provide a uniform email retention policy to apply only to emails that would be considered a public record and hope to clarify within AB 1184 what types of emails constitute a public record. The office indicated that they anticipate several rounds of amendments will be required to sufficiently narrow the bill and will be seeking CSDA’s feedback to ensure the bill is workable and not overly broad.

CSDA is currently opposed to AB 1184 and will be reaching out to our Expert Feedback Teams for input following the anticipated amendments. Please feel free to contact CSDA’s Senior Legislative Representative, Dillon Gibbons, at dillong@csda.net should you have any questions about the bill

OANN NOT CARRIED BY TELEVISION PROVIDER?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Perhaps curtailment of your right to truthful political information reporting through television service providers has already effectively set the stage for the continuing attempts to transform our USA into yet another socialist country failure? Who would want something like that?

Other than enemies of this FREEDOM LOVING COUNTRY?

Seriously. Who, or what, determines the information that will be presented on public “airways” for citizens to adequately understand one of the most treacherous and diabolical attempts by the DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT to illegally remove a duly elected US President?

Oh yeah, and not just any president (typical talk, less action), but one who, despite the constant unfounded attacks and disruptions from the near pathologically lying left, has been able to make a tremendous amount of progress – and way overdue corrections against the horrible economic environment the left had intentionally designed and forced on our American Citizenry!

Remember the old expression regarding faulty computer analysis?

GARBAGE IN … GARBAGE OUT!

This was the same argument used against PETER J KAMPA’s $35,000 digital mapping project and resulting “FAKE WL11395 POU MAP” >>> if the underlying information furnished and utilized in production of a “FINAL POU MAP” is known to be incorrect (violates official POU Map on file with SWRCB), why would ANYONE honestly believe the final result would be correct much less have the authority to override what the state water board had determined over 40 years ago and continued despite multiple past challenges?

How is

OUR PRECIOUS AMERICAN VOTE

any different if the information utilized to form important opinions and make serious decisions regarding OUR AMERICAN FUTURE is only carefully manufactured untruths and misrepresentations designed to elicit a desired response?

AND HERE IS THE KICKER……

The DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT

must fabricate, lie and distort the truth in order to gain support for their cause, because if their cause were clear,

the far majority of legal American Citizens rich in diversity from areas all over the planet,

WOULD NEVER VOTE TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA because it is ALSO THEIR BELOVED COUNTRY OF FREEDOMS only dreamed of elsewhere!

Just as in any scam, fraud, deceit, trick etc., (to wrongfully take something from another), the criminal perpetrator must convince the victim to willfully perform exactly as the criminal intends. Often victims of such “something for nothing swindles” never even report the loss to authorities. Why? The anticipated (cultivated) embarrassment is a big part – deep down the ‘”mark” knew “it seemed too good to be true….”. How does this “honest victim” explain paying $140 for a solid gold $2,500 pocket watch in a casino alley?

Please think about how our nation’s highest law enforcement departments and agencies, intelligence networks, “spying technology resources”, all of it and more, has recently been used by the DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT in order to remove a legally elected President.

THE DPSL was almost successful in preventing the citizens of the United States of America from ever having another honest election. Once something like that is successful, it would only get stronger with each passing election – with a corresponding loss of Constitutional Rights to assure continued DPSL goals ……. naturally.

Yes, I know, there has always been corruption on both sides….. humans, remember? lol, BUT NEVER TO THIS EXPOSED DEGREE!

Sitting at home watching CSPAN as government witness after witness “TEST-A-LIED” (sarcasm for testified) many of us were appalled at the utter failure to answer simple questions …..and when they did speak their body language and demeanor screamed: “I AM LYING MY ASS OFF SURELY YOU CAN SEE – CANNOT TELL THE TRUTH RIGHT NOW…..BECAUSE THEY’LL KNOW IT’S ME! lol)

DISGUSTING!

If the DPSL can do such a thing to someone legally elected President of the United States (not to mention someone possessing great influence as a private business person of notoriety anyway) can you imagine what they could do to you or me?

Gosh, wonder how the DPSL will react to serious in depth investigations into the misuse of government agencies, personnel and resources to attack and destroy political adversaries? HEY! That sounds like other third-world countries yeah? Yup, prepare for more garbage my friends, much, much more garbage to distract from what they have already done.

Just like ‘ol Pete Kampa – came here to develop an ALTERNATE GROUNDWATER SOURCE to circumvent the Merced River water restrictions in WL11395 and to expand expensive subsidized outside POU special benefit water service to LAFCO ANNEXATIONS he set up twenty years earlier …… mission accomplished, CUSTOMERS GET HIGHER BILLS, lack of leadership/management responsibility/accountability, so Pete is once again off to the next KAMPAGANDA CONQUEST and EXPLOITATION in Groveland, CA!

KAMPA NEVER ANSWERED LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS BEGINNING IN OCTOBER 2014 THROUGH May 2019!

SWRCB 2016 COMPLAINTS UNRESOLVED? (Website still has incorrect information) CONTINUING INVESTIGATION? CLOSED A SECOND and LAST TIME?

CLOSED SINCE KAMPA LEFT LDPCSD LEAVING US WITH HIS INTENTIONAL MESS?

CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY IGNORED?

Gosh, no one seems to want to take responsibility for Kampa’s LAFCO ANNEXATION GRANT FUNDED GROUNDWATER WELLS TO CIRCUMVENT THE WATER LICENSE WHILE THE MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS OF THE LDP SUBDIVISION GET STUCK WITH ALL THE ADDITIONAL EXPENSES AND LESS SERVICE!

EVERY DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTIC OF A SPECIAL DISTRICT HAS BEEN DESTROYED AT THE LDPCSD WITH THE PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE OF A CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT ASSOCIATION (CSDA) 20 YEAR BOARD DIRECTOR! Strange, yeah?

Wow, wonder how many voters will want to be recognized for their continued support in the attempted destruction of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

Better check your news source — ASK FOR OANN – DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THE TRUTH!

LDPCSD BOD SPECIAL MEETING (minus Closed Session?)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Yup, a Special Meeting but the noticed CLOSED SESSION did not occur. According to “channel two speak” (director comments captured on the Open Meeting recording that evidently outed some confidential Closed Session information not on the agenda) Pete Kampa will apparently continue to be the LDPCSD GM/Treasurer until the middle of May. Strange, someone recently advised that Kampa had been (or was shortly to become) appointed full time General Manager and employee with full benefits in Groveland, CA where he had previously been acting as an interim contract GM. Perhaps he is just hanging onto the LDPCSD until his next position of exploitation?)

Must be a lot of “KAMPA” to go around yeah? How can someone be “full time” at one Special District, yet “part time” at various other special districts? Is this a new Special District Management technique advocated by the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (CSDA)? Multiple public agencies controlled by one individual/company – ONE STOP MANAGEMENT SERVICES? lol

I noticed the below announcement which might support an upcoming full time GM position …… looks like that community is being geared up for some expensive projects that someone like Pete Kampa will be more than happy to fund with government grants/loans if the agency has enough money to leverage such. Who knows? Maybe Groveland has its own layer of special interests that need to get over some restrictive hurdles that only someone like Pete Kampa could manage? I see that Kampa was the TUD (Tuolumne Utility District) GM back in 2007 and currently pushing GCSD to once again regain active membership in the Tuolumne Stanislaus Integrated Regional Water Management Authority, etc.

I sincerely wish Groveland customers the very best but would caution that they be very careful in voicing ANY support for something they might desire without any adequate thought or research on the ultimate, or even foreseeable, consequences. (I DON’T BELIEVE IT VERY PRUDENT TO LEAVE DETAILS TO THE DEVIL) No doubt Kampa has quite an inventory of consultants, engineers, contractors, etc., who are well experienced with enticing good intentions and projected beneficial outcomes for all. I just hope a “ROAD TO HELL” for another community will not be paved with endless KAMPAGANDA “up talk”, half truths, and intentional community deception for other, less than obvious, motives.

SEEMS THE “powers that be” DON’T WANT THE PUBLIC TO READ 411 ON THE CONTINUING BETRAYAL OF LEGAL CALIFORNIA VOTERS

Reading Time: 1

15 BILLION IN NEW TAXES

ALREADY PLANNED FOR

CALIFUSION VICTIMS BY THE RULING

DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT?

Sure would be nice if the information and efforts of those supporting “LEGAL CITIZENS” were as abundant and easily accessible as the massive DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT garbage advocating NON-CITIZENS be permitted to determine the direction of not only this state, but the the entire country.

When reading the previously posted FINANCE PERFORMANCE AUDIT OF THE DMV, I could not help but wonder what part the MOTOR VOTER PROGRAM may have played in this continuing failure and betrayal to the legal citizens of this state. One sentence in that audit explained why such relevant information was absent:

PAGE 8: Our audit did not include an assessment of any activities related to the Motor Voter program. An assessment of the Motor Voter program is being performed by Ernst and Young, LLP, and its results will be issued under separate cover.

Why was this highly controversial (and I believe UNETHICAL) ANTI-LEGAL CITIZEN PROGRAM “peeled away” from the continuing DMV failures to serve legitimate, legally documented citizens?

Too clear of a connection?

How did such a worth while investigation of this MOTOR VOTER BETRAYAL even get started considering the CURRENT STATE OF CALIFUSION DOMINATED BY THE DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT?

Four republicans standing up

for what is right and fair!

FOLKS….THIS COUNTRY IS A REPUBLIC!

REMEMBER THE PLEDGE?

“…..AND TO THE REPUBLIC

FOR WHICH IT STANDS….”!!!

Seriously, why is the below information so difficult to navigate and read?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 11395 WATER LICENSE N.O.V. INVESTIGATION AND THE “FAKE” PLACE OF USE MAP, BOTH COMPLIMENTS OF CSDA DIRECTOR PETE KAMPA?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Still waiting for copies of the many emails Peter Kampa told the board and public he had sent to the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB or State Water Board) regarding the September 2017 Notice of Violation regarding water license 11395. (Sent another request in today.)

(REMEMBER? WL11395? The water license held by the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT with which the Lake Don Pedro CSD has always used to pump Merced River Water from Lake McClure for the subdivision since it was formed by the two County LAFCOs (Local Agency Formation Commissions) of TUOLUMNE and MARIPOSA in August 1980)?

Curiously, the SWRCB website still incorrectly reports the two violations regarding the Merced River as occurring in the counties of Stanislaus and Sutter rather than Tuolumne and Mariposa. How did something like that happen – switching county names? The Merced River certainly does not run through Sutter County, and only on a small part of the county line of Stanislaus. Why is such incorrect information allowed to remain for public inspection after being reported as incorrect soon after its appearance on the site?

Who knows what is going on in this CURRENT STATE OF CALIFUSION, but “Falsifying government documents” use to be considered a serious form of white collar crime involving altering, changing, modifying, etc., a document for the purpose of intentionally deceiving others.

(Such as in fraud cases where false documents are provided to promote the victim’s reliance on “BAD INFORMATION”, who then, based on that incorrect information, either acts or fails to act in a way that results in some form of detriment or loss to them, and benefit to another. The crime can also involve intentionally passing along copies of documents that are known to contain false information which encourages reliance by other victims. The activity is often punished as a more serious felony violation of law rather than a misdemeanor.)

WHAT DOES THIS RECENT DMV PERFORMANCE AUDIT REVEAL TO YOU?

Reading Time: 7 minutes

https://abgt.assembly.ca.gov/sites/abgt.assembly.ca.gov/files/April%209%20Hrg%20%20California%20Department%20of%20Motor%20Vehicles%20Performance%20Audit%20March%202019.pdf

What will all this mean to ALREADY VICTIMIZED “LEGAL CALIFUSION CITIZENS”?  Who knows? But I would be willing to bet EVEN GREATER DMV costs passed on to citizens to continue CALIFUSION ARROGANT OPEN BORDER POLICIES WITH A CORRESPONDING “RIGHT TO VOTE” ADVOCACY PROGRAM FOR MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS – ALL TO INSURE A VOTER POPULATION IN SUPPORT OF THE REFUSAL TO ABIDE BY FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY FORCING LEGAL CITIZENS TO PAY FOR THE CLEAR DIVERSION FROM LEGAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES.  (Just like the LDPCSD subsidized outside Place of Use water services to LAFCO ANNEXATIONS beyond water license 11395! same only different, yeah? lol)

I fail to understand how such continued activities by the State of Califusion, and DEMOCRAT, PROGRESSIVE, SOCIALIST LEFT OFFICIALS leading these various departments and agencies, actually benefits LEGAL STATE CITIZENS, much less their entire UNITED STATES of AMERICA HOMELAND.  Sure appears to be an institutionalized sabotage in pursuing a POLICY OF OPEN BORDERS AND RESOURCE “GIVE AWAYS” aka, REDISTRIBUTION TO OTHERS WHO IGNORE IMMIGRATION LAW.  

But please remember, Califusion’s current Attorney General, Xavier Becerra and his Deputy AG, both left Washington DC during the DEMOCRAT CAUCUS COMPUTER SERVER INVESTIGATION….weird huh?  So now the California Department of Justice is the Department of “JUST US”.  Rem also that good ‘ol Xavier does not consider the millions illegally entering this country to actually be committing a crime and is working to eliminate the “crime” designation of that activity.

Tons of information in this audit, but below are only a few items that caught my eye as symptomatic of a problem spanning the entire STATE OF CALIFUSION and spreading throughout our country.  The June response will be interesting.  OK, here we go on an extremely limited “snap shot” of some of this DMV audit.

COVER LETTER: 

March 27, 2019: Final Report—California Department of Motor Vehicles Performance Audit

The California Department of Finance, Office of State Audits and Evaluations, has completed its audit of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The enclosed report is for your information and use. DMV’s response to the report findings is incorporated into this final report. DMV agreed with our findings. We appreciate their assistance and cooperation during the engagement, and willingness to improve their business practices and reduce wait times to enhance the field office customer experience. This report will be placed on our website. A detailed Corrective Action Plan (CAP) addressing the findings and recommendations is due within 60 days from receipt of this letter. The CAP should include milestones and target dates to correct all deficiencies. The CAP should be sent to: OSAEReports@dof.ca.gov. After the initial CAP is submitted, it should be updated every six months thereafter, until all planned actions have been implemented. The appropriate individual or mailbox DMV has designated will receive reminders when the updates are due to Finance.

FROM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY PAGE:  At the direction of Governor Brown, the California Department of Finance, Office of State Audits and Evaluations, conducted a performance audit of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The audit objectives were to:1. Assess the efficiency and effectiveness of DMV’s current operations and make recommendations to improve its practices and enhance the field office customer experience.2. Evaluate DMV’s information technology (IT) system and its impact on the field office customer experience

With the vision of being a trusted leader in delivering innovative services, the mission of DMV is to serve the public by licensing drivers, registering vehicles, securing identities, and regulating the motor vehicle industry. DMV’s five-year strategic plan, focused on delivering superior customer service, is designed to support its vision and mission. DMV’s operations are not always efficient and effective in delivering services to its customers and many opportunities exist to improve its practices and enhance the field office customer experience.

Although the REAL ID implementation and long wait times during summer 2018 highlighted problems at the DMV, the findings and recommendations described throughout this report indicate DMV has operated with significant weaknesses in its underlying governance structure and organizational culture.

PAGE 3:

BACKGROUND In summer 2018, California news outlets began reporting on DMV customers experiencing hours-long waits at DMV field offices. Long customer wait times were intensified by IT outages. In September 2018, at the direction of Governor Brown, Finance’s Director informed DMV it would be subject to a performance audit, as long wait times do not reflect the high standards of service that Californians expect from state government

PAGE 5: DMV and the REAL ID Act

In May 2005, Congress passed the REAL ID Act, establishing minimum security standards for state-issued driver licenses and identification cards. Beginning October 1, 2020, individuals will need to present a REAL ID-compliant driver license or identification card or another acceptable form of identification to board a domestic flight or access secure federal facilities.

(LEW – 13 YEARS LATER?…)

In January 2018, DMV began issuing REAL ID driver licenses and identification cards. To apply for a REAL ID at DMV, citizens are required to visit a field office and provide original or certified documents proving their identity, Social Security number, and residency. For additional information regarding REAL ID and its requirements, see Appendix D for DMV’s Fast Facts about Federal REAL ID.

PAGE 8:

Our audit did not include an assessment of any activities related to the Motor Voter program. An assessment of the Motor Voter program is being performed by Ernst and Young, LLP, and its results will be issued under separate cover.

PAGE 10:

FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Finding 1.1: Significant Deficiencies in Planning and Implementation of the REAL ID Program Negatively Impacted the Field Office Customer Experience DMV’s customer experience was significantly impacted by the implementation of REAL ID, manifested mainly by long field office wait times in summer 2018. DMV should have implemented a more robust approach for planning and executing the REAL ID Act. DMV’s strategic plan goals include providing superior customer service and equipping employees with the tools and facilities to meet its responsibilities, which fell short with regard to REAL ID.

The approach for complying with REAL ID was inconsistent in the decade leading up to implementation,

(LEW EMPHASIS)

the REAL ID IT project was not recognized as a priority until 2017,

(rather like the legal WL11395 POU was never confirmed by LDPCSD!)

and DMV missed opportunities to reevaluate policy impacting the frequency customers require its services. In preparing for REAL ID implementation, DMV anticipated approximately 23 million people would apply for a REAL ID-compliant card by 2022-23. As of September 2018, DMV had issued approximately 1.3 million REAL ID driver licenses and identification cards, leaving over 20 million people expected to still apply. 3 As referenced in the Background section of this report, beginning October 1, 2020, individuals will need to present a REAL ID-compliant card or another acceptable form of identification to board a domestic flight or access secure federal facilities. If DMV does not address the recommendations detailed throughout this report, it risks repeating long wait times and unsatisfied customers leading up to October 2020 and beyond.

If DMV does not address the recommendations detailed throughout this report, it risks repeating long wait times and unsatisfied customers leading up to October 2020 and beyond

PAGE 12:

DMV also formed an internal REAL ID steering committee to help implement the REAL ID Act. The steering committee met in 2007 and 2008, but was hesitant to take meaningful action. For example, meeting minutes from October 2007 reported management was concerned that the issuance of a letter to DHS could be construed as a commitment to implement the REAL ID Act. The steering committee meetings appear to have ended in September 2008.

PAGE 15:

Field office managers expressed concern with the lack of preparation time provided to familiarize themselves with the content prior to weekly meetings. Field office managers often receive the meeting content from regional office management on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning shortly before the meeting starts, as it originates from the Director’s Tuesday morning team meeting. This limits managers from spending time to fully understand the materials and ask follow-up questions before sharing with employees. Additionally, this could result in managers providing inaccurate guidance, delays in addressing employee questions, and inconsistent implementation of policies and procedures. DMV should consider moving the date of the Director’s meeting to Monday mornings with communication to field office managers no later than Tuesday mornings, to provide sufficient preparation time for weekly meetings.

SOUND FAMILIAR?  Same routine as the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD “noticing” Board of Director monthly meetings with the agenda/packet delivered on the Friday before the Monday meeting, which insures the public will not have enough time to

read and understand the packet, but more importantly,

such limited notice effectively prevents adequate time to contact the office (or other pertinent agencies) FOR CORRECTIONS regarding incorrect and/or misleading information used to intentionally misled and/or distract customers from what is being proposed for GM/Treasurer/Board action.

PAGE 26:

Field offices are expected to designate employees to triage the pre-queue, i.e., approach customers in line to determine the purpose of their visit, answer questions, review documents, and direct them to the appropriate area of the office to complete their transactions. Triaging customers helps ensure customers are prepared with the proper documentation to complete their transaction and know where to go. During our visits to 30 field offices, we observed 15 offices with lengthy pre-queue lines. Only 6 of those 15 offices were observed triaging the pre-queue line. Inconsistently triaging the pre-queue lines increases the risk that customers will experience long waits only to learn they cannot complete their transactions because they have the wrong documents or payment method. For example, customers may wait in the pre-queue, receive a ticket, wait for their ticket to be called, go to a window, and begin processing their transaction, only to learn at the window that field offices accept cash, check, money order, or debit cards for payment, and not credit cards. DMV should ensure all field offices consistently dedicate employees to triage customers in the pre-queue lines, including educating customers of DMV’s accepted forms of payment. Additionally, DMV should evaluate the feasibility of accepting credit cards as a form of payment in field offices

PAGE 27:

In September and October 2018, field offices were provided tablet devices to aid in triaging the pre-queue line so employees could issue Qmatic tickets and make return appointments for customers when necessary.

Only 1 of the 15 offices visited with lengthy pre-queue lines were observed using tablets to triage the pre-queue line. DMV informed us that tablets may not be consistently used because of limits with network connectivity, which it was actively working to resolve. One field office stated it received limited hands-on training regarding how to use the tablets and therefore did not rely on them. Tablets may also have not been observed in use because field offices were not triaging pre-queue lines.DMV should ensure employees responsible for triaging lines use tablets to assist customers while they wait and assign Qmatic ticket numbers. The employees should be trained on how to use the tablets to effectively assist customers. If problems arise with tablets, DMV should troubleshoot and timely resolve the issue rather than abandoning use of the tablets.

No wonder the DMV since 2013 (new DMV DIRECTOR APPOINTED) can’t figure out my home is in Mariposa County and keeps charging me an extra $22 in registration fees by repeated asserting I live in Stanislaus County and subject to valley SMOG REGULATIONS  (and no, it is not just the zip code confusion with 95329).   Heck, maybe if I were to claim to be from some Central American country, here illegally and stole the truck during our group’s invasion into the USA ….

Take a look at the report if you care to see some more frightening detail as I must get outside and perform some work – no one else is going to do it for me.

WHY ARE DEMOCRATS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE PAST HACKING OF THEIR SENSITIVE INFORMATION?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Everyone seems to be wondering how the Russians obtained information that was handed over to Wikileaks….did some of it actually come from the Democrat Caucus Server controlled by the Pakistani Awan family which was apparently paid much more money than other comparable IT employees working for the Democrat Party? (Millions of dollars for what? Blackmail due to what was discovered on that server? Was it later sold?)

And who was in charge of that server? Our California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (oh yeah, and his current Deputy California Attorney General who was also in Washington DC at the time!) Co-incidence?

Folks, just imagine….all this was going on within the DNC and Democrat Caucus in Washington DC (that was actively covered up to prevent any public understanding as to how serious the information theft was) all the while the DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT continued to “MAKE UP EVIL STORIES” connecting PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP with the alleged Russian backed release of information they claim was damaging to Hillary Clinton during the election. (Funny. HRC has enough damaging information “baggage of her own doing” without any assistance from the Russians or anyone else!)

I’m sorry, but I honestly believe the most dangerous organized enemy of our UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, has been, and still is, THE HI-JACKED DEMOCRAT PARTY, aka, the new DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT!

(Of course without millions of “low information” (and easily deceived) voters that keep them in office the DPSL could never get away with such despicable criminal behavior. Gosh, perhaps that’s just another reason for the DPSL to encourage and advance such massive uncontrolled illegal immigration into this country by people who will vote for ANY PARTY who provides more services at NO COST!)

The DPSL PROFESSIONAL DISINFORMATION AND PROPAGANDA focuses on blaming, and framing, innocent others to cover their own duplicitous betrayal of America and all her legal citizens which simultaneously obstructs the legitimate progress being made in cleaning up the decades of their continuing corruption.

They will do ANYTHING TO DISTRACT AND CONCEAL THEIR NEFARIOUS ACTIVITIES! –prohibit free speech challenging DPSL activities at all levels of American education, from elementary school to state universities! They encourage assaults on those who disagree rather than a logical debate. Why? Because many of their positions are completely illogical when investigated! They even encourage massive illegal immigration into this country which clearly injures all legal American citizens and their vested, entitled interests as LEGAL CITIZENS!

There’s an easy way to identify most of these folks fortunately – if some activity or policy is clearly detrimental to the LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZEN (regardless of any particular individual difference – as our population diversity is what makes us even stronger) ,,, if the activity is obviously against the interests of our country and her LEGAL CITIZENS…..you can likely bet, money, marbles or chalk it originated from the darkness of the DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST LEFT!

YES INDEED….there are many other “links” in the above articles. Check them out as I believe all this will slowly start coming together to paint a pretty clear picture as to the lengths these ANTI-AMERICA activists (often clad in RED WHITE and BLUE as camouflage) will go to destroy this country!

Now that integrity and honor has been returned to the US ATTORNEY GENERAL’s OFFICE (WILLIAM BARR) I believe we will be hearing much more about this, and many other, absolute betrayals to our USA and her LEGAL CITIZENS in the near future. I will continue to pray for such ILLUMINATION because just as Liz Wheeler’s segment title on OANN

ONE AMERICA NEWS NETWORK

so exquisitely and accurately points out:

OUR UNITED STATES of AMERICA is at the

TIPPING POINT!
