IS INCORRECT INFORMATION ALSO ON STATE WATER BOARD WEBSITE?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

INCORRECT INFORMATION SEEMS TO NEVER STOP REGARDING THIS SERIOUS SUBJECT WHICH HAS BEEN INTENTIONALLY IGNORED FOR OVER FORTY YEARS!

(Yes, over forty years when you consider the LDPCSD was formed in August 1980 yet changes to the service boundary had evidently already been made by LAFCos BEFORE the California Public Utilities Commission transferred the former Sierra Highlands Water Company facilities and assets to the new CSD in January 1981.  WHERE IS THE ORIGINAL SERVICE MAP BASED ON THE SURVIVING METES AND BOUNDS FIELD SURVEY of 1980?  LAFCO paid for this multi-page survey….where is the frigg’n map?)

The September 26, 2017 REPORT OF INVESTIGATION, contained in the NOTICE OF VIOLATION, by the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board), Division of Water Rights, states on page one that it “received a complaint on February 22, 2016 via email against the Lake Don Pedro Community Services District (LDPCSD).”  Later it also states, “the complainant subsequently submitted CalEPA complaint 46350 on April 4, 2016.”

NOTE: The SWRCB Notice of Violation can be found in the LDPCSD October agenda packet between pages 29-38. 

LINK TO PACKET BELOW

LDPCSD October 2017 AGENDA PACKET

ADDITIONAL NOTE:  The SWRCB color map contained in the LDPCSD agenda packet was also incorrectly preceded on page 37 with information regarding KAMPA’s $35,000 CAD mapping project which was ultimately used to once again intentionally misrepresent the legal PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER per water license 11395 held by the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT.

$$$$$$$$$$$$

Considering there has been little information provided during our LDPCSD monthly board meetings by GM/Treasurer Pete Kampa regarding this MERCED RIVER WATER PLACE OF USE matter, I have been checking the SWRCB website (below) for months in hopes of locating additional information.  Unfortunately I recently discovered that a complaint date and BOTH locations were apparently documented incorrectly on this website for some reason.

How could the counties of

MARIPOSA & TUOLUMNE

be confused with the counties of

STANISLAUS and SUTTER

concerning water rights of the

MERCED RIVER under WL11395?

The shear amount of incorrect information regarding Lake Don Pedro CSD water service OUTSIDE THE PERMITTED PLACE OF USE under WATER LICENSE 11395 certainly suggested an investigation was warranted and there is no doubt that the resulting September 2017 NOTICE OF VIOLATION was extremely helpful in dismissing decades of incorrect information provided to the public while intentional violations continued unchecked, however, when such important information as to WHERE THESE VIOLATIONS ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE IS ALSO APPARENTLY INCORRECTLY REPORTED BY THE INVESTIGATING AGENCY ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, I cannot help but wonder ….

is something else being protected?

RATTLESNAKE VACCINATIONS?

Reading Time: 1

Considering we have already had a few rattlesnake encounters up here in these foothills (all three dogs – fortunately without serious incident) the annual vaccination seems worth the cost and temporary inconvenience. Certainly no guarantee, but if bitten the vaccination should help reduce the severity of pain and venom effects.   The traveling time for appropriate treatment is another big consideration in these “semi-remote” foothills also.  Naturally there are many opinions on the subject of rattlesnake vaccinations – heck, consider there are many parents who refuse to vaccinate their children for fear of complications as well.  Many different perspectives.

This is only one article encouraging such medical treatment:

RATTLESNAKE VACCINE FOR DOGS

Reduced activity following any vaccination is reasonable and also provides time for some extra attention.  All my dogs typically “take the day off” after vaccinations with some extra sleep (and treats) but are raring to go the next morning.    Anyway – it’s getting to be that season again – be careful during foothill frolics!

2’35” of recent LEW FLU

Reading Time: 1

Why this expression? I don’t know, just because I guess.

Yup, nasty strain of FLU. I took a gamble and did EXACTLY what good ‘ol Mom warned against…..getting back to a work routine too early and risking a possible relapse but I was faced with a garden shed roof collapse to that problem “leaning tree”.  Yeah, forced me out of bed a bit soon but thankfully I was able to remedy the situation without any serious problems although I had to lay down on the ground a couple of times to rest because of dizziness. Yes I considered the possibilities carefully….chainsaw, ladder, not feeling 100% – but was never-the-less able to remove the weight of the tree and save the roof – then “I crashed” for another day or two watching TV and picking up around the house a bit (which is always required).  Still not quite back to normal but definitely much better. Not being able to smell/taste food is always a problem with gaining your strength back but chicken noodle/tomato soup and crackers seem to always fill that bill – and of course….FLUIDS FLUIDS FLUIDS! Cannot risk dehydration while fighting those bugs. Well….I hear that familiar call for weed slaughter! later!

My (near) best to you and yours, Lew

PS: Please be careful with this year’s Flu!  Don’t be a dumb ass like I was – obtain the necessary medications some way and rest!

“HEAD UP ASS”ertions

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Whoa – this year’s “flu experience” hit quite hard despite the annual routine of a peremptory vaccination.  Whether due to the particular strain I picked up during the last grocery shopping excursion or my advancing age (perhaps a double whammy of both these critical variables), it was not only unpleasant but painful.  The typical muscle aches and shooting pains up and down limbs were augmented with old surgical hernia repair pain due to the chronic coughing.  Don’t recall the hugging of pillows so much in past flu episodes.

Fortunately the Good Lord blessed me with a close friend who simply ignored my stupid semi-hermit motivated assertions of self sufficiency and ability to care for myself.  You know what I mean – that desire (however misplaced at the time) of not wanting to inconvenience others or subject them to potential risk because of our own immediate discomfort or need?

“Naw, thank you very much – I do sincerely appreciate your offer but I’ll be fine – just need some down time for it to run its natural course, but thank you very much just the same.”    

Yup, those confident words of self sufficiency could have been my last without intervention.  The next telephone call did not contain generous offers of assistance but rather straight forward instructions for me to follow:

“Don’t argue – I’m already in route, bundle up – I’ll meet you at the gate in 15 minutes – no visiting, just a “care package” drop and run.” 

And what a wonderful and needed “care package” it was!   Don’t know about the rest of you but without a NiQuil type product as a primary home remedy it is extremely difficult for me to get that necessary rest to recover.    NiQuil, DayQuil, vapor rub, miscellaneous food items….

Leanne, thank you SO MUCH for not listening to my “head up ass”ertions of not needing any help!

I can smell and taste again! 

Poor viewers…..recovery is on its way!

EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Was Kampa’s past reported employment history as Manager and General Manager at Delft University in the Netherlands truly factual?

If so, why later remove the information?  Such experience at a major university is a good thing, yeah?

And why wasn’t his four years of PRIOR EMPLOYMENT WITH THE LAKE DON PEDRO CSD not included in that original employment history?

Was that Delft U employment in chronological order as suggested in the original report?  In other words, did Kampa work here in the States and then later travel to the Netherlands to work at Delft University as a Manager and a GM before returning to the United States and his other local water industry work here in California (Tuolumne Utilities District)?  Or was that stated employment an incidental bonus for Delft attendance as a student?  (ie, Students being rotated through such positions for experience and documented employment history prior to leaving academia for traditional employment?)

Either way, regardless of the chronological timing or how that managerial experience was supposedly acquired for public reporting, why would such employment information be removed from Kampa’s previously posted employment record on the internet if factual?

You know, if Danny Johnson and Emery Ross had required a traditional employment background check prior to PETE KAMPA’s appointment as GM (and given essentially unrestricted access to over 1 million dollars in cash – SERIOUSLY!  Does that FACT PATTERN sound like PUBLIC AGENCY FIDUCIARY DUTY TO YOU?), many of these persisting questions would likely have been answered years ago.    Including the fact, as Wes Barton pointed out in his Public Comment letter, PETE KAMPA is not even certified to run a water treatment facility.  What did Kampa actually manage at Delft U?  The entire university?  Obviously here in the United States right now Pete Kampa is a “remote general manager” who only selects the personnel for the various duties that require certification.

Yup, VERY STRONG STORM

I knew yesterday’s storm was a bad one because in the past almost 30 years of working this land I have never observed that much water falling in such a short period of time.  My 6”- 10” PVC pipe drains choked up quickly with all the natural debris picked up along the water’s path downhill.  Flooding everywhere!   Although I knew there was going to be flood related damage across this foothill region that MyMotherLode news photograph of the roadway damage to Ranchito Drive (x Golfito) here in the subdivision was still quite shocking.

You know, there are enough horrible things that will naturally occur without INTENTIONALLY HIRING A GM who was clearly dedicated to expanding the OUTSIDE POU for Merced River water far beyond the entitled Lake Don Pedro subdivision.  (But of course that was the specific reason Kampa was hired – to obtain the grant funds necessary to construct expensive GROUNDWATER WELLS to supply that ALTERNATE SOURCE of water REQUIRED BY ALL LAFCO ANNEXATIONS INTO THE DISTRICT THAT ARE OUTSIDE THE PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER UNDER WATER LICENSE 11395.  JOHNSON AND ROSS knew exactly what they were getting.)

When I viewed those photos of the extensive flood damage in the area I thought how nice it would be to have a GM/Treasurer from this area that was focused solely on the problems of this area and not dividing his precious/costly time between multiple CSDs.  Other CSDs that in addition to their own local difficulties and challenges, now share the common problem of a “remote GM” looking to exploit what he can through, and for,  his limited liability company, other consultants, and various business associates.

PETE KAMPA REMOVING HIS NETHERLANDS EMPLOYMENT HISTORY FROM THE INTERNET WAS CURIOUS

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Current General Manager/Board Treasurer PETE KAMPA

lakedonpedro.org file photo

___________

.

so with EXTREMELY LITTLE EFFORT I “discovered” some pretty shocking “old news”.

Yes I admit to being completely ignorant about how the CLINTON FOUNDATION received millions of dollars from this NETHERLAND LOTTERY CONNECTION.   (I never read the book CLINTON CASH.)

Any surprise HILLARY CLINTON was in the Netherlands recently explaining “her take” on why she lost the presidential election?

While reviewing what PETE KAMPA has done here at our LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT  [greatly expanding the PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER BEYOND THE DECADES OLD EXISTING WATER LICENSE 11395 RESTRICTIONS]  I wondered if the statement below might indeed suggest an accepted European political ideology and strategy that has been quietly transplanted across America by those coming here for exploitative purposes….even right here in LAKE DON PEDRO?

“We like encouraging people to take matters into their own hand and create a better world and we also like to encourage entrepreneurship,” Marieke Van Schaik managing director of the Dutch Postcode Lottery told ABC News.

Although certainly “old information” perhaps the below article (and other such reports regarding this NETHERLANDS (and others) influence on American politics and society) does in part explain PETE KAMPA’s ABSOLUTE CONTEMPT AND DISREGARD FOR UNITED STATES LOCAL, STATE and FEDERAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS WHICH TEND TO INTERFERE WITH HIS PERSONAL/BUSINESS/POLITICAL ENTREPRENEURIAL EFFORTS?

<NETHERLAND’S LOTTERY AFFECTING AMERICAN POLITICS?>

 

Recall what KAMPA did at the McCloud CSD with the NESTLE CORPORATION deal (France)?

SOUND FAMILIAR?

I am discovering why links to outside information are no longer operational-

SOMEONE IS CONCEALING TRUTHFUL FACT BY REMOVING THE LINKED INFORMATION!

STOP NESTLE WATERS

PETE KAMPA NOTIFIED BY EMAIL AGENDA PACKET WAS NOT POSTED FOR LAST MEETING – then PRESTO!

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

CURRENT LDPCSD GM/BOARD TREASURER PETE KAMPA

lakedonpedro file photo

 

GOSH, imagine that?  The AGENDA PACKET containing that “revolving questionable Annual Audit” scheduled for Board approval on Monday March 19th, 2018 (approved by the 3 directors present- Board President Danny Johnson, Vice President Dan Hankenmeier, and Director Russel Warren) was not posted on the LDPCSD website for CUSTOMER (or other entity) REVIEW until

AFTER THE MEETING HAD ALREADY TAKEN PLACE!

(Some prior notice before the meeting eh?)

Received a call back from Syndie at the LDPCSD office this morning (Wednesday, 3-21-18 @ 1022hrs) regarding my message left yesterday at lunch about that agenda packet being unavailable on the LDPCSD website PRIOR TO THE MEETING LAST MONDAY.  Syndie advised she had left an email message for Pete Kampa regarding the matter as he is in control of the website.

FINALLY….

A WORKING LINK TO THAT INFORMATION:

<BETTER LATE THAN NEVER eh?>

I wholeheartedly admit to being cynical about “ANYTHING KAMPA” and this only bolsters my opinion he is A TRUE MASTER OF ALL SNEAKY UNDERHANDED BUSINESS TECHNIQUES that undercut and injure the entire concept of “TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT PROCESS” – regardless if he received that CSDA (California Special Districts Association) TRANSPARENCY AWARD OR NOT.

[ANYTHING involving PETE KAMPA, THE MIDPOU, WL11395 and this district’s infrastructure needs to be double – triple checked for accuracy because

A FAT FOX HAS BEEN COUNTING HENS AND EGGS SINCE 2014!]

I wonder, does the CSDA instruct its Board Members on how to implement and utilize such sneaky techniques against the idea of AN INFORMED PUBLIC, or did PETE KAMPA bring such deceitful tricks to the CSDA as a bonus to his 20 year CSDA board position?

SO MANY PECULIARITIES REGARDING PETE KAMPA AND HIS EMPLOYMENT HISTORY.

Why was KAMPA’s Delft University, Netherlands employment history background removed from the internet?  Was it some kind of mistake years ago or does that institution (or political orientation of that country?) have any relation to,  or influence upon our GM/Treasurer’s perspective of local government in America?  Or – how to most effectively obtain millions of dollars in grant funds for a local non profit yet exploit and/or misappropriate the same towards the special interests of private for profit enterprises?   Doesn’t the Oath of Office mention both foreign and domestic enemies of this country?  Perhaps LDPCSD has received a “double whammy” with good old, “finally took the Oath Of Office” PETE KAMPA?

I, _________________________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will
(Print Name)
support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of
California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear
true faith and allegiance to
the
Constitution of the United States and the State of California; that I take this obligation freely,
without any mental reservation or
purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully

______________________________.
(Job Title)
Signature: _________________
__________
Subscribed and sworn to before me
this _______ day of _______________, __________
(day)(month)(year)
______________________
 

You know, instilling a sense of distrust, lack of respect, and contempt for our laws and system of justice (clearly evidenced by Kampa regarding the POU and Merced River water use under WL11395)  is one of the most damaging activities I can possibly imagine an enemy using against our country and citizens.

Why?

Because such disrespect spreads like a cancer when truthful information is suppressed/concealed and special interest propaganda is permitted to “fill the gap and flourish”.  

Holy Krapa-Roni!  Sounds like FAKE NEWS, yeah?

Incorrect maps still displayed on the LDPCSD website despite the STATE WATER BOARD Notice of Violation?

ABSOLUTE refusals by PETE KAMPA and his Board of Directors (for over a year) to simply contact the STATE WATER BOARD for a legitimate POU map?

(Don’t ask or acknowledge COMMON SENSE TRUTH so they can “PLAY DUMB” and later say “GOSH, WE HAD NO IDEA?)

KAMPA using an antiquated 24 year old “shape file” (map) from an abandoned project during his first employment tour with the LDPCSD to expand the Place of Use for Merced River water for LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commision) ANNEXATIONS KAMPA ASSISTED IN CREATING OVER TWENTY YEARS AGO?  (CONTINUED INTENTIONAL MISREPRESENTATION)

A 1995 proposed 900 acre residential subdivision kept a secret until only a few months prior to KAMPA’s unethical appointment to the LDPCSD as GM and being provided access to over 1 million dollars of hard saved LDPCSD cash?  Cash KAMPA used to leverage government grants supposedly for emergency drought use but in actuality used to develop GROUNDWATER WELLS to furnish water to the massive LAFCO ANNEXATIONS that cannot develop without that GROUNDWATER?  (MISAPPROPRIATION OF PUBLIC FUNDS FOR PRIVATE BENEFIT)

Way too many examples of KAMPA’s continuing deceitful tricks for this post!  (Rather like a single pearl, nothing ominous or threatening about one little pearl, but string a bunch of these little “pearl deceits” together on the thin wire of consistent misrepresentation and together they make an effective garrote to public knowledge and control of their own COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT!)

KAMPA & KOMPANY have been working 24/7 since October 2014 for such nefarious behind the scene deals with public funds.   Seriously, what chance do average citizens have in fighting such an organized conspiratorial criminal element (utilizing many other third party services as well)  that is supported with, and protected by, misused public resources and revenue?

Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office refused to investigate despite multiple submitted written complaints.

Mariposa County District Attorney refused to investigate despite complaints.

Remember the FOIA (Freedom of Information Request) to the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT regarding the OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE 16 years of MANDATORY COMPLIANCE REPORTING (ACTUALLY DEMANDED BY THE MID), BUT THAT CERTIFIED MAIL REQUEST WAS MYSTERIOUSLY LOST BETWEEN SACRAMENTO AND MERCED?

Then, even when the request was “hand carried” into the MID OFFICE  “THEY” WERE STILL UNSURE WHAT AN OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE REPORT WAS REGARDING THEIR WATER LICENSE 11395?

THEN USPS SUGGESTS USING REGISTERED MAIL NEXT TIME TO BE ABSOLUTELY SURE OF CONFIRMED DELIVERY!

(Registered mail is secured in a special area separate from other mail and anyone handling it is (supposedly) required to sign for the material.  That’s why customers pay those extra charges….to be sure it is delivered correctly AND OBTAINING PROOF OF DELIVERY!)

So what was the next logical step?

Checkout my $21.35 REGISTERED MAIL 75 page WRITTEN COMPLAINT WITH A PAID FOR RETURN RECEIPT (UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE) SENT TO THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE REGARDING ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE LAKE DON PEDRO CSD…..

How many times have we heard variations of

“Your questions raise a number of serious issues, including highly improper perhaps even criminal activities likely involving public service employees THAT SHOULD CERTAINLY BE INVESTIGATED BY PROPER AUTHORITIES, however, to this date OUR DEPARTMENT has not received a single complaint regarding this matter and it would be highly improper for me to comment on any allegation of wrong doing until receiving a legitimate written complaint from the public”.

______________

Take another look at that paid-for return receipt documenting proper delivery

“COMPLETE THIS SECTION ON DELIVERY”

(DO YOU SEE A SIGNATURE, PRINTED NAME, DATE OF DELIVERY, OR EVEN A “RECEIVED STAMP” which would constitute documented evidence for the sender that their material had been properly received as paid for?)

 Perhaps this is a method for participants in “ethically compromised government to project false ignorance” to the crimes they knowingly permit to continue while simultaneously concealing evidence of their existence from the public?

(Don’t forget the motive of also concealing such conspiratorial behavior from “legitimate public service watchdogs” who should be aggressively prosecuting such individuals for betrayal of our democracy.)

My best to you and yours, Lew –

but as far as KAMPA & KOMPANY and other such “DEEP STATE” type activists who use their trusted positions in LOCAL, STATE & FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to force their personal political beliefs and goals on VICTIM CITIZENS of this country……

and despite the fact they likely do not believe in anything but their own selfish perspectives and greed….

I wonder if ANY OF THEM, during those quiet times of contemplated thought about the meaning of life, ever considered the possibility (however slim they might now believe it to be) that they could actually be setting themselves up for an eternity in

?

There goes that blood pressure again!

Perhaps there is more evil than good?

“WE”…… 0048hrs UPDATE: Today’s Meeting Agenda Packet at end of post! later

Reading Time: 7 minutes

WE ……………(the other filthy members of this “DIGITAL KNOW NOTHING BAND”) were discussing the agenda for tomorrow’s Lake Don Pedro CSD Board Meeting (Monday, March 19th, 2018 @ 1300hrs) when a contradictory aspect to current General Manager/Treasurer Pete Kampa’s response to the STATE WATER BOARD September 28th 2017 NOTICE OF WATER RIGHT VIOLATION was brought up.

Please recall Kampa had confirmed at the February board meeting that the same incorrect 24 year old “Shape File” (map) information (KAMPA presented to customers at the October 2017 meeting with that BOARD APPROVED $35,000 mapping project) had indeed been submitted to the STATE WATER BOARD as the official LDPCSD Place of Use (POU) boundary for Merced River Water.

 

KAMPA had also at that time demonstrated his unwavering support for his NEW POU DESIGNATION by removing properties from the traditional monthly OUTSIDE POU COMPLIANCE REPORT in order to reduce the amount of GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION required for State Water License 11395 compliance.

Since every unit of Merced River water that leaves the district in violation of license restrictions MUST BE REPLACED with an equal or greater amount of GROUNDWATER, Kampa attempted to reduce that required amount of GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION since that new groundwater source was stated to be for EMERGENCY DROUGHT RELIEF.

WE HAVE ALWAYS CONTENDED

those extremely expensive GROUNDWATER WELLS designed, developed and maintained with PUBLIC RESOURCES & REVENUE were in fact intended by KAMPA & KOMPANY from the beginning to serve the outside POU compliance demands for the massive LAFCo (Local Agency Formation Commission) annexations into the district that were clearly OUTSIDE THE water license POU and therefore required a groundwater supply to develop.

Adding insult to injury, many of those annexations were approved by LAFCos when the LDPCSD had no GROUNDWATER SUPPLY what-so-ever.  This suggests a hidden agenda of forcing the LDPCSD  (formed by LAFCo as well) into surreptitiously circumventing clear license restrictions by providing a SUBSIDIZED GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION  SERVICE for properties outside the legal POU which our district had no moral obligation or legal duty to serve water – a fact clearly documented in the CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission) transfer of facilities and assets to the new LDPCSD in August 1980.   (A district formation document in LDPCSD records for many years has misrepresented that CPUC service area approval by adding a sentence greatly expanding the area.)

Even a 900 acre proposed subdivision KAMPA work on 20 years earlier (approved in 1995) was kept a secret from the public until only a few months prior to KAMPA’s unethical appointment as GM through a closed recruitment process orchestrated by Board Directors favoring further outside POU expansion.   Kampa was simply returned to finish what he started in the 1990s – obtain the groundwater necessary for private development with public funds.

Kampa’s removal of those annexed properties from that long standing OPOU report was accomplished based on SHAPE FILES (maps) obtained from a conditionally approved project  which was ultimately abandoned for failure to meet State conditions – with this occurring when Kampa was first employed at the LDPCSD back in the mid 1990s.  Did Kampa use those maps for obtaining DWR (Department of Water Resources) grant money?  Why would the DWR have antiquated “shape file” records illustrating an incorrect POU for Merced River water per WL11395?

WE WONDERED what this background discussion had to do with the upcoming meeting on Monday?

From the March 19th, 2018 Agenda Packet:

“State Water Board Violation Notice –The requested map layers have been submitted to the state are currently under review. To date, we have not received response from the State Water Board staff. “        

WE SUGGEST VIEWERS READ THE BELOW 180 SPIN BY KAMPA…

Can you hear and smell the PU?

  • Outside Place of Use and Well Operation–During the month of February, we operated Ranchito Well #2, pumping 9.86-acre feet to the treatment plant. The total consumption by OPU customers was 0.68 acre feet. For reporting purposes, we are including all parcels previously included in the OPU report, plus the parcels we have recently unidentified as likely outside the POU, but not previously included in monthly reports.  Using this method of reporting, until the state provides an POU boundary decision, we will be reporting the potential maximum number of properties that the state could determine as located outside the POU.

(GRAMMAR ASIDE –  Can viewers hear/smell what WE mean?

we are including all parcels previously included in the OPU report, plus the parcels we have recently unidentified as likely outside the POU, but not previously included in monthly reports.”

Can’t you hear the screeching tires of our LDPCSD clunker as KAMPA power skids them through a quick about face turn and heads off in the opposite direction?  Can’t you smell the burning rubber tires?

(Guess who pays for the resulting damage to this LDPCSD IMAGINARY VEHICLE? – representing the course this CSD has been pursuing since KAMPA became the driver in 2014?)

“WE”?

Dear LORD!  I am SICK AND TIRED OF THE YEARS OF THIS MISLEADING “WE” KRAPA!

WE THIS…. WE THAT…. WE BELIEVE……, when in actuality it is PETE KAMPA THIS, PETE KAMPA THAT……PETE KAMPA BELIEVES…..

(Thus this CONTINUING “WE” spoof of the DKNB! 

LOL!

There are no other Digital KNOW NOTHING Band members!

Just ME ME ME ME – off key again huh?   Lol)

In this current KAMPA “WE EXAMPLE” the “WE” is substituted for the STATE WATER BOARD which investigated this CONTINUING KAMPA POU MISREPRESENTATION and determined the POU boundaries indeed appeared contradictory and requested clarification from GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA.

The KAMPA “WE” has done JACK SHIT in reporting the truth of this POU matter – much less acknowledging his own duplicitous activities of intentionally misrepresenting essential facts for over twenty years! 

#2 

Why OPU instead of the TRADITIONAL OPOU?

Agreed, much of Kampa’s work might best be summarized with a “PU” abbreviation – (PU as in stinky krapa), but more importantly this is just another illustration of Pete’s penchant for intentionally confusing subjects and issues as camouflage for his behind the scene garbage.  Something he has done for over twenty years regarding the LDPCSD and permitted MERCED RIVER WATER USE.

After all, how is “PLACE OF USE” abbreviated in legitimate State water agency documents?

POU !

So naturally our professional manager uses “OPU”.

Same as on the LDPCSD website where viewers must download the POU information for review rather than having it simply posted like KAMPA has done for his

BULLSHIT MAPS

WHICH CONTINUE TO REPRESENT INCORRECT BOUNDARY INFORMATION

as well as

“AREAS RESERVING WATER FOR FUTURE USE”

to the public!

WE-CU4?-UR

And it’s not so lol PU PETE.

Actually, the OPOU title change to OPU may have been suggested by the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT after I requested POU COMPLIANCE INFORMATION through a FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT request (Certified mail lost between Sacramento and Merced) that the MID had been receiving monthly for about 16 years until KAMPA returned and quickly halted the report.

Even when “hand carried in” MID claimed to be unsure of the information I was requesting!  Heck, KAMPA later stated he wasn’t even aware of such compliance reporting to MID the WATER LICENSE HOLDER WHO HAD ORIGINALLY DEMANDED THE REPORTS IN THE FIRST PLACE!

  Oh please!

WE BELIEVE IT PRETTY OBVIOUS that the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT, PETE KAMPA and the LDPCSD Board of Directors have worked together for some time to conceal this information from the public.

#3

HEAR & SMELL?

KAMPA has steadfastly pursued his own personal/business SPECIAL INTERESTS in developing annexed land within the LDPCSD.  (Kampa personally advocated the annexation of approximately a thousand acres in 1997.)   Kampa has supported and defended his devious activities with professed managerial education, experience and professionalism.   Do not forget he even recently received a GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY AWARD from the CSDA (California Special Districts Association) where he has been an active board member for approximately 20 years.  Some coincidence, huh?  No doubt the CSDA is extremely proud of their ACCOMPLISHED SPECIAL DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE who can really get things done.  Apparently the CSDA is not concerned with the lack of ethical standards of their board members either.

Yes a cocksure Pete Kampa resurrected and began pushing a twenty plus year conspiratorial annexation development plan with a cooperative board (NOTE:  OUR statement does not include recently appointed Director Nellie Sperry or prior director Jim Sult) signing off on all things KAMPA.  Even the locations where further dry wells were drilled; the purchase of a nearby property with a questionable ground well, and other activities came right out of that 20 year old OPOU “playbook” development plan.

Only recently has the board displayed some questioning of “all things Kampa”.

But what has changed?

That appears to be a relatively simple question to answer:

It is one thing to essentially tell LDPCSD customers who ask legitimate pertinent questions at meetings to piss off – but quite another when the STATE OF CALIFORNIA asks those same questions!

_________________________________________________________________

ALSO FROM THE MONDAY AGENDA PACKET:

“Incorrect Government Code Section Used on 2-21-18 agenda – We received a public comment at the February board meeting regarding the California Government Code section (citation) used on the Closed Session agenda.   Management has confirmed that Code Section 54956.95 was incorrectly used, which should have been Code Section 54954.5”  

Nice try— but that INCORRECT CODE SECTION has been used multiple times for different CLOSED SESSION MEETINGS regarding a GM EVALUATION despite a prior question as to the code’s correctness being ignored.

SO WE WONDER: 

Was this truly the wrong Code Section for a NUMBER OF GM Evaluations supposedly held in CLOSED SESSION?

(Recall Board President Danny Johnson stated there had never been a GM evaluation in the past according to policy.) 

Or –

Was the correct code section for AN INCORRECTLY TITLED GM EVALUATION repeatedly used to obscure CLOSED SESSIONS where financial matters involving law suits and potential district losses have been discussed, perhaps even acted upon outside the public view?

In other words, were these multiple CLOSED SESSION MEETINGS actually dealing with district liabilities and/or potential losses by law suit as the CODE SECTION STATES due to PETE KAMPA activities which the board/legal counsel did not want reported to the general public at this point – so they just called it an “evaluation”?

What documents were copied and distributed by Board President Danny Johnson during that one meeting closed to the public where PETE KAMPA was SUPPOSEDLY directed to write his own evaluation of accomplishments at the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD?  That could have been done in open session, yeah?

Heck, WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CONTRIBUTE TO SUCH A “FORMAL EVALUATION”!

 WE have had enough for now.

OUR best to you and yours, Lew  

OH YEAH….
