HELLO! Let’s see, 1920hrs, Saturday, November 3rd, 2018…. been working on a report of the last meeting [October 15th, 2018 – Nope. No longer attend meetings as the lies and deceit are just too much. At home I can turn the audio off and do something else when I feel that pressure rising.]
Anyway, …here are the particulars leading up to this posting now….
Friday, November 2, 2018: Received a portion of my October 18th, 2018 request for public information (meeting audio CD) when I drove to the LDPCSD office after a “transfer station” (waste disposal) trip. Here is that request:
From: Lew Richardson

Subject: Oct 15 2018 Meeting recording
Good morning Syndie, would appreciate a copy of this month’s LDPCSD Monthly Board meeting recording. Please advise when ready and I will make payment and pickup. Also, any word on the LDPCSD Consumer Confidence Reports previously requested for prior years?
Also as another public information request, 1) I would appreciate copies of all correspondence GM Kampa has provided the SWRCB in response to their request for clarification of the POU discrepancies as outlined in the SWRCB Aaron Feldhaus email to Pete Kampa on August 30, 2018.
GM Kampa stated in this month’s agenda packet that certain information had been included for discussion regarding the POU boundary issue, however, the Mariposa County LAFCO Resolution establishing the LDPCSD and the 1978 POU Map with Sierra Highlands boundaries were not included in the packet as stated on page 35.
2) I would therefore appreciate a copy of “The Resolution of the Mariposa County Local Agency Formation Commission establishing the LDPCSD, using the Sierra Highlands Water Company boundaries” as stated by GM Pete Kampa on page 36, item 1 of the October 15, 2018 LDPCSD Meeting agenda packet.
3) If already clearly identified during the meeting “detailed presentation of the information provided in this packet” as management stated it would on page 36, you can disregard the following request. (Very curious though, how can a “detailed presentation” of information provided in the packet be made at the meeting if the information was not provided in the packet?)
Location and identification of the “original district maps” District staff, mapping consultant and legal counsel have reviewed regarding the POU “discrepancy” for the previously proposed Unit 7 area for the Sierra Highlands Water Company subdivision which was abandoned at owners request (never included in the subdivision) and was approved by all parties to revert to open acreage but which is now proposed for another adjacent residential subdivision with portions clearly outside the WL11395 POU as previously determined by MID officials and LDPCSD legal counsel. (Please identify relevant maps by title, purpose, date, revision date/number, creator, scale, etc.)
4) A copy of the map prepared from the 11 page metes and bounds survey GM Kampa included in the LDPCSD October 15, 2018 agenda packet stating it defined the original LDPCSD boundaries yet was only illustrated in the agenda packet through a few county assessor parcel maps with subsequent Kampa notations referencing other maps of questionable accuracy produced with GM Kampa direction and assistance. The packet information only referenced one small area of POU controversy and a complete depiction of what was originally approved (but only documented in surveyor’s language most people cannot understand without the corresponding map which is required under CALAFCO GUIDELINES that Pete Kampa coincidentally assisted in creating in 2016) might be of great assistance in revealing other areas that are also outside the WL11395 POU for Merced River water service.
Thank you, Lew Richardson
I stopped by the office on Friday October 19th, 2018 to check on that outstanding prior request for information which included the issue of past Consumer Confidence Reports regarding water quality that appear to be missing from LDPCSD records, or at least, not published for public review. I was advised that Syndie was on vacation and to check with her on Monday. Then early Monday morning October 29th, I received this:
Out of the Office Reply
Thank you for your email. I am out of the office from October 17th – October 26th. If you need immediate attention please call (209) 852-2331 Ext 0 and someone can help you.
Office Manager / Board Secretary
Gosh darn it, missed by only a day getting my request in before Syndie took vacation on the 17th. Oh well, stuff happens right? But that “out of office” email notification was rather weird yeah? I mean, advising someone “after the fact” that they wouldn’t be in the office? Thought such messages were supposed to be auto-sent upon receipt of an incoming email? ANYWAY, so today is Friday, November 2nd, 2018 and I had just started to listen to the monthly board meeting recording for October 15th, when I see an email notification from Syndie:
Your public records request has been received and in the process of being reviewed and processed. You will be notified upon completion. Have a great day.

ANYWAY, so today is Friday, November 2nd, 2018 and I am reviewing the monthly board meeting for October 15th, 2018 —yeah, …….like I repeat myself……lol
Lake Don Pedro Community Services District (LDPCSD) Vice President Dan Hankemeier, without fanfare, quickly opened the monthly board meeting. No customary opening pleasantries such as a welcome, or official introduction for the business record by mentioning little tidbits like the name of the public agency, date, time, purpose of meeting, etc..
Let’s continue shall we? This will almost be like radio except for my constant blah, blah, blah yeah? lol
My best to you and yours, Lew
