Ever read or hear something that just doesn’t make sense, but it’s hard to explain exactly why, or what it is? How it keeps chewing at your brain until that glimmer of recognition and understanding of its illogical nature materializes in another unrelated though humorously similar example?
That’s what I thought about GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA’s self admitted continued questioning of state officials about one stated detail contained in the STATE WATER BOARD September 28th, 2017 NOTICE OF VIOLATION regarding
Water License 11395 PLACE OF USE restrictions
that really had no effect on the primary issue for the violation notice.
OF COURSE it could conceivably be another extremely important component to understanding the surreptitious motives and plans birthed from decades of behind the scene “wink and nod” devious activities by governing, regulatory, enforcement, and managing entities and officials involved with this Community Services District’s dark side;
the continuing absolute betrayal and victimization of the extreme majority of MR WECs of the Lake Don Pedro subdivision – which to me sounds very much along the lines of
FRAUD, DISCRIMINATORY FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION AND
DENIAL OF RIGHTS TO A SELECT GROUP OF INNOCENT
TAXPAYERS BY REASON OF THEIR PROPERTY OWNERSHIP
WHICH OCCURRED WITHOUT REASONABLE DISCLOSURES REGARDING
THE FINANCIAL LIABILITIES THAT ARE ASSUMED FOR THE SUBSIDIZATION
OF AN EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE SPECIAL BENEFIT GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION SERVICE FOR
PRIVATE THIRD PARTY LAND DEVELOPERS OWNING THOUSANDS OF ACRES
OUTSIDE THE SUBDIVISION PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER under WL11395;
(well, something like that)
the diabolical plan of using an UNPRECEDENTED STATE WIDE EMERGENCY DROUGHT situation to obtain government grants ostensibly for EMERGENCY DROUGHT WATER FOR EXISTING CONSUMERS yet all the while PETE KAMPA was aware of both known and unknown COMPLIANCE FAILURES to SUBSTITUTE GROUNDWATER for the MERCED RIVER WATER ILLEGALLY LEAVING THE PLACE OF USE (POU) and intending to even further expand this GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM to potentially thousands of ANNEXED ACRES outside the license POU leaving costs to the majority of MR WECs of the Lake Don Pedro subdivision;
yet another unrestrained and arrogant demonstration by PETE KAMPA (supported by his APPROVING Board) of utter contempt and conscious disregard for long established STATE WATER BOARD and MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT published PLACE OF USE MAPS for MERCED RIVER WATER per WL11395.
Yes, the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (CSDA), a not for profit lobbying organization, must be very proud of their twenty year active Board Member Pete Kampa – a government transparency award and everything!
Perhaps Pete is shooting for a diminished capacity defense plea? You know, insanity?
Is he again playing everyone for fools with his elaborate twenty plus year secret plans?
Does he have sufficient agreeable and influential contacts within the State water industry to pull off a quick POU Change with some “administrative” remedy circumventing a full blown change petition and further investigation of the facts?
I always understood a formal change petition would be way too expensive both financially and politically because it would involve considerable, and understandable, push back from down river users – especially those with prior water allotment revisions and reductions.
Why would KAMPA in light of the clear statements in the NOTICE OF VIOLATION regarding the ACTUAL 11395 POU – proclaim and institute a NEW POU in the LDPCSD and, once again, stop the mandatory outside POU compliance reporting OF KNOWN PROPERTIES OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARY?
Seriously, he received another 90 days to answer for KNOWN POU VIOLATIONS, yet he announces a NEW POU BOUNDARY FOR THE LDPCSD which is OBVIOUSLY INCORRECT AND CONSTITUTES ADDITIONAL NEW POU VIOLATIONS WHILE WAITING TO ANSWER FOR THE ORIGINAL PREVIOUS VIOLATIONS THAT GAVE RISE TO THE STATE’S NOTICE OF VIOLATION BACK IN SEP 2017!
WL11395 POU RESTRICTIONS were, and still are clear and easily understood by those NOT ATTEMPTING TO CIRCUMVENT THEM (who knows whether or not Kampa “influential contacts within the state water industry” are busy right now attempting to change this long established POU?)
Yup, RESTRICTIONS clear as big red reflective octagon stop signs and/or flashing red lights. Humm, a traffic violation analogy might actually be helpful in attempting to understand Pete Kampa’s apparent approach to this STATE VIOLATION NOTICE.
A STATE VIOLATION NOTICE which, incidentally, has been an ABSOLUTE BLESSING as to providing important missing information to this forty (40) plus year fraud against the “extreme majority” of MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS owning property in the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision. An EXTREME majority of MANDATORY CUSTOMERS who are essentially forced to subsidize this special benefit groundwater substitution service for those lands annexed into the LDPCSD by county LAFCos which also completely ignored the water restrictions in WL11395. yeah, yeah….sos
OK, onward with the traffic citation analogy…..
A CHP officer on patrol observes violations of law contained in the California vehicle code for which the officer has obviously been educated, trained, and provided the authority and jurisdiction within which to enforce those laws. The officer observes a violation, initiates a traffic stop, contacts the driver and conducts a basic investigation (license, registration, insurance, driver’s physical/emotional condition, etc.) and if the violation is not serious enough to warrant immediate “in custody status” (handcuffing, placing in patrol unit, etc.), he issues a citation listing alleged violations along with a date, time and location to appear before a judge. Only one thing is missing…. acknowledgement of the driver’s “follow-up responsibilities” documented on the citation and agreed to, as evidenced by the driver’s signature.
Most of you already know this, but for those who may not, a signature on a citation documents the driver’s promise to later appear in court and IS NOT an admission of guilt – remember, that innocent until proven guilty concept? Just promise to take care of this later.
The driver’s signature is the “bond” (like bail bond) guaranteeing the driver will appear in court in the future to answer for the alleged violations listed on the citation, however, if the driver refuses to legitimately sign the citation for whatever reason, the officer will then on the scene take physical custody of the person by handcuffing and transporting to a facility/jail for identification, booking and then obtaining that signature as a promise to later appear in court. If still no signature at that time they will likely remain “in custody” until appearance before the judge where a monetary “bail” is set. (Of course I am referring to the old days so there may be some procedural changes based on specific arrest circumstances.)
Now in this NOTICE OF VIOLATION for water license PLACE OF USE violation it would seem as though GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA, …………………using the CHP analogy above,
has been attempting to engage the traffic officer in an argument over an insignificant aspect of the violation for which the citation was issued rather than focusing on preparation for the formal court appearance. In other words, Pete Kampa is demanding to know exactly how a state water board officer determined how a related issue appears to have occurred rather than examining and addressing what triggered the original violations and represents a potential for continued POU violations in the future.
HINT: This is likely why KAMPA CHANGED THE PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER FOR THE LDPCSD LAST WEDNESDAY IN HIS SURPRISE INFO DUMP (or so he believes?) —- IT WILL BE EASIER TO MEET THE KNOWN EXISTING GROUNDWATER COMPLIANCE DEMAND AS WELL AS PROVIDE ADDITIONAL OUTSIDE POU CONNECTIONS IN THE FUTURE – ALL WITH PUBLIC MONEY – if the high consumers are removed.[RECALL how the COUNTY OF MARIPOSA owed $40,000 plus for reimbursement to the LDPCSD because the LAKE DON PEDRO WASTE WATER FACILITY had been using the wrong water meter for years and only paying for a fraction of the GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION actually being consumed. That extra FREE WATER was probably also helpful with the processing of the liquid leachate from the Mariposa County landfill that was transported to the LDP Waste Water Facility in tankers during all times of the day and night during periods of heavy precipitation. No doubt helped to keep residential sewer costs down around the golf for a while. Hum, wrong meter? Sounds recently familiar.]
Of course, in this STATE WATER RIGHTS CASE, it was PETE KAMPA and the LDPCSD that indeed furnished the STATE OF CALIFORNIA with clearly incorrect and contradictory map information regarding the PLACE OF USE restrictions under water license 11395.
Rather like OUR DRIVER providing a counterfeit license, altered registration, or false insurance paperwork to the arresting officer, but when confronted about the discrepancies, starts jumping up and down, waving his arms, and screaming, “how do you know I don’t have valid insurance right now, right this minute? Maybe I just left the insurance place! You can’t prove I don’t have it right now, can you? You can’t prove right now for sure that I don’t have insurance – right now – can you?”
Reminds me of a humorous sign in the Mariposa County Building Department many years ago:
“Arguing with a building inspector is like rolling in the mud with a pig.
The pig loves it and you just get dirty.”
Then, even after being granted a 90 day extension to prepare an answer for the court appearance (STATE WATER BOARD HEARING) our driver (GM/TREASURER) continues to pester the ISSUING OFFICER (State Water Board) to provide specific details of the evidence giving rise to the initial vehicle traffic stop (violation notice) while committing similar more serious violations as the officer drives away?
Naturally such information (if provided) would be quite helpful in determining what sort of defense would be appropriate when ultimately appearing in court and attempting to “beat the ticket” – that is, if Pete Kampa isn’t going for a diminished capacity gig. lol
WHY does PETE KAMPA even need to respond to the STATE WATER BOARD
since he has already established a new POU by again discontinuing the compliance reporting and public information regarding consumption figures while stating they are now entitled to MERCED RIVER WATER based on a map from an abandoned project 24 years ago which clearly contradicts the STATE WATER BOARD and MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT ESTABLISHED OFFICIAL POU MAPS?
Remember how I have become rather “expressive” during meetings regarding these POU maps?
No, it didn’t happen again fortunately, but probably should have – regardless I sure as hell would have had a PUBLIC COMMENT
IF GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA HAD INCLUDED HIS
NEW PLACE OF USE 11395 BOUNDARY
FOR MERCED RIVER WATER, and
REPORT OF ANOTHER
43% TREATED WATER LOSS
IN THE NOTICED AGENDA PACKET LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN
RATHER THAN ANOTHER UNATTACHED MEETING SURPRISE GM REPORT
“DUMP OF CONCEALED IMPORTANT DISTRICT INFORMATION”
(which of course can’t be discussed at the meeting because it was not part of the “sometimes numbered agenda packet” and will most likely be lost like so many other “SUSPICIOUS UNATTACHED DOCUMENTS” in LDPCSD HISTORICAL RECORDS.)
That OFFICE ARSON PRIOR TO KAMPA’s RETURN is beginning to make much more sense now.
AS DOES MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCo REQUESTING LDPCSD HELP WITH THEIR OWN ANNEXATION MAPS.
Recall how I accused GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA of INTENTIONALLY USING THE WRONG POU MAPS ON THE WEBSITE AND LEAVING THOSE INCORRECT PAPER COPIES ON THE BOARD ROOM WALL FOR THE PUBLIC TO SEE?
(Tell a lie often enough and it becomes a management/board truth and hopeful defense to the State Water Board?)
Well, I stand by what I said and would like to try and clear this KAMPA MAP GARBAGE up right now WITHOUT the distraction of all the audio/video stuff, ok?
BELOW IS THE MAP PETE KAMPA CONTINUES TO DISPLAY
ON THE LDPCSD WEBSITE AND BOARD ROOM WALL
This is the June 20, 1977 MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT MAP illustrating the Place of Use for Merced River water whose boundary is titled: SIERRA HIGHLANDS WATER COMPANY,
however this map also contained added diagonally hatched areas identified in the title block as
“AREAS RESERVING WATER FOR FUTURE USE”.
This map was evidently submitted to the STATE WATER BOARD FIRST during licensing in an attempt to include these other LAFCo ANNEXED PROPERTIES but they were apparently detected as incorrect and a revised map on June 20, 1978 resulted – without the hatched “reserved water” designation. THOSE HATCHED AREAS REPRESENT THOUSANDS OF ACRES THAT WERE ANNEXED INTO THE LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT BY TUOLUMNE AND MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCOs (LOCAL AGENCY FORMATION COMMISSIONS).
THESE AREAS, HOWEVER, WERE CLEARLY OUTSIDE THE PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER YET ANNEXED ANYWAY CREATING MUCH TURMOIL. MANY WERE ANNEXED BEFORE THE LDPCSD CONSTRUCTED THE FIRST WELL IN 1993 AS A “REMEDY FOR OUTSIDE POU WATER LICENSE VIOLATIONS”. That original well, RANCHITO #1, IS STILL OFF LINE FOLLOWING ITS FAILURE DURING ALL THE DRILLING FOR NEW WATER TO SELL OUTSIDE THE POU.
WHY ANNEX LAND INTO A DISTRICT
(SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO SERVE WATER)
WHEN THAT DISTRICT
COULD NOT LEGALLY SERVE THEIR
ONLY SOURCE OF WATER?
(Does the large print help with clearly illustrating a legitimate question that has begged for an answer for decades? lol)
WAS THE LAKE DON PEDRO CSD SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED, FORMED AND INTENDED FROM DAY ONE TO INTENTIONALLY CIRCUMVENT MERCED RIVER WATER STATE RESTRICTIONS CONTAINED IN WL11395 THROUGH A SURREPTITIOUS GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM PAID FOR BY THE THOUSANDS OF UNSUSPECTING PROPERTY OWNERS OF THE LAKE DON PEDRO SUBDIVISION (half absentee) WHO CONSTITUTE THE DISTRICT’S EXTREME MAJORITY OF MANDATORY CUSTOMERS?
DOCUMENTS SUGGEST SOME OF THESE MAJOR ANNEXATIONS (EVEN OTHERS NOT SHOWN ON THE BELOW MAP OF annexed and proposed annexed lands) TOOK PLACE BEFORE THE CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION ACTUALLY APPROVED THE TRANSFER OF SIERRA HIGHLAND’S FACILITIES AND ASSETS TO THE NEWLY FORMED LDPCSD!
Regarding the above RESERVED WATER that Pete Kampa insists is some sort of a SERVICE RIGHT for these ANNEXED PROPERTIES, the SEP 28, 2017 STATE WATER RESOURCES CONTROL BOARD NOTICE OF VIOLATION , PAGE 1, THIRD PARAGRAPH clears up this continuing false information by Kampa:
Curiously, a very large portion of that “middle hatched area” was also a 900 ACRE PROPOSED SUBDIVISION ANNEXATION that was LAFCo approved in 1995 (when PETE KAMPA was employed at the LDPCSD the first time and advocated thousands of acres be annexed into the district), yet that ANNEXATION WAS ACTIVELY KEPT A SECRET for over twenty years until PETE KAMPA was returned to complete these annexation projects by developing an ALTERNATE SOURCE of groundwater production designed, developed and operated with public funds yet intended for private annexed land development and benefit. Cute huh?
BELOW is the June 15, 1978 REVISED MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT MAP illustrating the Place of Use for Merced River water – which, for the POU, is exactly the same as the June 20, 1977.
This is the official POU SERVICE MAP ON FILE with THE STATE WATER BOARD.
NOTICE THE ANNEXED LANDS “RESERVING WATER FOR FUTURE USE” ARE ABSENT.
THIS IS THE MAP (above)
PETE KAMPA AND HIS BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAVE REPEATEDLY REFUSED TO OBTAIN FROM
THE STATE WATER BOARD
AND NOW CONTINUE TO ACTIVELY IGNORE!
Remember this guy? “WOODSTOCK” from the Peanuts comics? Lucy and Charlie Brown? yeah, I’m old. Anyway, I’ve always thought our district boundary resembled Woodstock a bit (of course his tail became much larger with the South Shore Club 2,010 acre project off Bonds Flat Road that was annexed into the LDPCSD but never developed due to the developers failure to meet approval conditions set by the State Water Board. That’s why they are called “conditionally approved projects”. Conditions must be met to obtain approval. Unfortunately, those fixated on obtaining water only hear the two words “approved project” which of course is not so lol for those who end up paying for the negative results.)
So with Woodstock’s outline above in mind, notice that the county line “dip” on the top of his “map tail”, is CLEARLY ABOVE THE NORTHERN SUBDIVISION (POU) BOUNDARY. The school is between this county line and the subdivision boundary. (Some continue to interpret and claim a portion of this county line is a road. WRONG! (Please return to map reading 101 for a refresher.)
The school has always been outside the subdivision (thus POU) and this fact has been known since before it was constructed, yet once
again PETE KAMPA and HIS SUPPORTING BOARD contend everyone else is wrong – including, among others, the State Water Board, the Merced Irrigation District (holder of WL11395), previous boards, GM’s, attorneys, blah, blah, blah – everyone is wrong except Pete Kampa who set up a lot of this over twenty years ago.
At this last meeting (Wednesday, January 17, 2018) PETE KAMPA with his BOARD’s SUPPORT has proclaimed the TRADITIONAL HIGHEST CONSUMER OF GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION – and six other OUTSIDE POU PROPERTIES,
as now being
AN ENTIRELY NEW
PLACE OF USE BOUNDARY
for MERCED RIVER WATER under
This GM/TREASURER has now refused to release the consumption rates for known OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE PROPERTIES while also attempting to “low key” the fact we just had yet another 43% water loss last month – and that’s only treated water! Raw water loss (between lake and treatment plant) is traditionally quite substantial as well.
PETE KAMPA is apparently not asking the STATE WATER BOARD for an administrative change in the Place of Use for Merced River Water under the license, nor is he seeking a formal change petition (IF I WERE A LICENSED DOWN RIVER USER I’D BE IN CONTACT WITH MY LEGAL COUNSEL AND ASKING UNDER WHAT AUTHORITY CAN A GM/TREASURER OF A CSD UPSTREAM UNILATERALLY CHANGE THE PLACE OF USE OF A WATER LICENSE DURING A WATER LICENSE VIOLATION INVESTIGATION for THAT VERY WATER LICENSE POU ISSUE?
SPEAKING OF LEGAL STUFF– that’s another thing….what’s with all these “GM EVALUATIONS” held under Government Code Section 54956.95 which deals with liability and loss issues of a district?
What is actually taking place in these so called AND agenda titled CLOSED SESSIONS for
“PUBLIC EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION Government Code Section 54956.95 Title: General Manager”
Seriously, does the following government section under which these “evaluations” are taking place sound like a General Manager Evaluation to you?
Government Code – GOV
TITLE 5. LOCAL AGENCIES [50001 – 57550]
( Title 5 added by Stats. 1949, Ch. 81. )
DIVISION 2. CITIES, COUNTIES, AND OTHER AGENCIES [53000 – 55821]
( Division 2 added by Stats. 1949, Ch. 81. )
PART 1. POWERS AND DUTIES COMMON TO CITIES, COUNTIES, AND OTHER AGENCIES [53000 – 54999.7]
( Part 1 added by Stats. 1949, Ch. 81. )
CHAPTER 9. Meetings [54950 – 54963]
( Chapter 9 added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 1588. )
(a) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prevent a joint powers agency formed pursuant to Article 1 (commencing with Section 6500) of Chapter 5 of Division 7 of Title 1, for purposes of insurance pooling, or a local agency member of the joint powers agency, from holding a closed session to discuss a claim for the payment of tort liability losses, public liability losses, or workers’ compensation liability incurred by the joint powers agency or a local agency member of the joint powers agency.
(b) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prevent the Local Agency Self-Insurance Authority formed pursuant to Chapter 5.5 (commencing with Section 6599.01) of Division 7 of Title 1, or a local agency member of the authority, from holding a closed session to discuss a claim for the payment of tort liability losses, public liability losses, or workers’ compensation liability incurred by the authority or a local agency member of the authority.
(c) Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect Section 54956.9 with respect to any other local agency.
(Added by Stats. 1989, Ch. 882, Sec. 3.)
Consider also that since Pete’s return in October of 2014 a “formal” GM Evaluation has never taken place although scheduled multiple times yet the board is again waiting for the GM/TREASURER to essentially evaluate himself. Yup.
Since the LDPCSD has a history of doing many things ASS BACKWARDS, perhaps I should follow suit and provide the end of the meeting now?
The SPECIAL MEETING ended at 1459hrs (2:59PM).
I packed up all the camera/recording equipment and exited to the parking lot. I talked with Wes Barton a bit in the parking lot and entered my pickup. While Directors were in CLOSED SESSION I finally decided to wait in the parking lot again to hear the “report out” from their “GM EVALUATION”.
The exterior door to the BOARDROOM was closed so I moved my truck from the original parking space close to the door and backed into another space near another vehicle so I could keep an eye on the closed boardroom exterior door without looking over my shoulder or using the vehicle’s mirrors (A real pain in the neck the last time on CODE 5 – lol)
1518 hrs: Director Russ Warren opened the BOARDROOM door, and while standing in the open doorway began surveying the parking lot looking for something. When it appeared as though he was going to re-enter the boardroom and close the door again, I yelled out of my open passenger window something to the effect of” “Are you done? Ready for the report out?” (I was concerned if I did not speak up they would later say “no one was in the parking lot so we adjourned the meeting and you’ll have to wait until next month’s packet to read the report out in the Minutes for approval”.)
Director Warren scanned for a bit more and located my vehicle’s new position in the parking lot and inquired:
“Did somebody knock on the door?”
I responded that no one had been near the door. Warren entered and closed the boardroom door behind him.
1519hrs, (one minute later) BOARD PRESIDENT DANNY JOHNSON exited the boardroom with paperwork in hand. I asked if they were ready for the REPORT OUT of the CLOSED SESSION? JOHNSON replied no and that he just needed to make some copies. (Gee, wonder what copies were needed for a GM evaluation? This CLOSED SESSION had been planned for some time, why weren’t copies made in advance? Were the originals furnished by the board or the GM/TREASURER?
1522hrs, DANNY JOHNSON returns to the boardroom and exterior door is again closed.
1528hrs, GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA exits boardroom with brief case and proceeds directly to the Administration Office.
1552hrs, Operations Supervisor Randy Gilgo and another employee return to the LDPCSD compound in separate District vehicles.
1615hrs, Director Warren again opens the BOARDROOM door, I asked if ready for report out? Warren replies they are waiting for Board Secretary Syndie Marchesiello.
have been paying for such
UNETHICAL GARBAGE FOR DECADES!
My best to you and yours, Lew
PS: Sometimes I write and post things I believed humorous at that time, however, upon a later rereading with a bit more reflection (usually after a good night’s sleep) wonder if the attempt to produce a laugh or two might have gone too far in some fashion and caused distress to others or even hurt feelings – which was certainly never my intention. You know? Crossing some invisible line subjecting the joke itself to speculation as to whether it secretly reflected a personal belief or agreement with whatever the intended point of the attempted humorous comment may have been? That’s why I use the “lol” so frequently in posts, as a reminder of the tongue in cheek nature of so much of my written expression. (It is much easier to appreciate the intended humor when “in person” and witnessing simultaneous facial expressions, body language, tone of voice, etc. during such a joke presentation.)
Unfortunately, after starting the rather lengthy YouTube uploading process for this video and passing that “POINT OF NO RETURN” (should probably get another computer) I realized I likely, and quite unintentionally, may have offended an apparently very large segment of the population with what many, including myself, would consider to be an innocent albeit stereotypical humorously intended comment with absolutely no ill-will what-so-ever to the referenced individuals themselves.
OK, with that said, the above may be the way I perceived my joke made at someone else’s expense while trying to make a serious point with a couple of laughs, but that other person (the joke comparison) may not think the comment so funny, but actually disparaging, intentionally mean and hurtful, and just plain ignorant.
So in the event my sometimes excessive attempts to snag a laugh or two may have indeed offended or even angered some folks, I do sincerely apologize for the 420 comment. I do not believe for a nanosecond such consumption is responsible for the extremely pathetic performance of our “BOBBLE HEADED APPROVE ANYTHING KAMPA BOARD” which has repeatedly ignored multiple public requests for the district to acquire easily obtainable, legitimate, and truthful water license facts from the STATE WATER BOARD. Oh yeah, I also do not believe such consumption alone would necessarily cause an otherwise honest individual to become corrupt and unethical – especially when Oath sworn to represent the interests of the public.
Obviously there is something else at work here.
