What happened to a traditional opening for public business meetings? What happened to the Lake Don Pedro Community Services District Monthly Board of Directors meeting opening for the official record? Seriously, Hanky has been on the board for several years now as VP….but if still unable to keep up with the responsibilities and adequately prepare for meetings, perhaps someone……Wait a sec……that would mean the next president would be…… (Ahhum… clearing throat) ….anyway, yeah, the meeting was a great! Absolutely fantastic and the time just flew by with all the useful information presented for every bill paying MR WECs (Merced River Water Entitled Customer) that is fortunate enough to have such sincere, experienced professionals who donate their valuable time to assist our district and it’s cherished customers through this difficult COVID-19 strained environment of uncertainties. Yup, a very interesting and revealing presentation and official recording, ahhhh, and quite versatile too …. you might even call it a recyclable meeting also since without a stated meeting date for the record these recordings can be used as substitutes for any meeting – over, and over, and over again!
Well, let us try that opening again shall we?
This LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT monthly Board of Directors Meeting began quite suddenly and without the traditional opening statements such as the title of the meeting and purpose (whether a regular monthly BOD meeting or a special meeting), the date and time, whether a quorum was established; what personnel were present or absent, etc.. I imagine the meeting had started late again which appears to take place far more often than reasonable and acceptable for a local public agency. Heck, even a Mariposa Grand Jury mentioned this common issue years ago and still these DEFECTOR DIRECTORS just do whatever they want with absolutely no accountability what-so-ever. Welcome to another Califusion scam to cheat citizens.
The meeting quickly took off with the Pledge of Allegiance (which, quite frankly, has always been an absolute embarrassment considering the track record of the LDPCSD and these particular “do nothing BORED OF DEFECTORS!” What are they really “pledging”? You know, the similarities between the LDPCSD and our last 2020 USA election is frightening because just like in that SHAM OF AN HONEST ELECTION, the manufactured exterior functioning of the LDPCSD could almost pass as something legitimate until you look at the actual processes and how the intended beneficiaries are actually TRANSFORMED and INTENTIONALLY DESIGNED DEEP POCKET FINANCIAL VICTIMS OF A GIGANTIC FRAUD perpetrated by two foothill counties who desired a way to develop rural drought prone areas based on a concealed subsidized groundwater substitution program funded by those who did not need or require groundwater wells for legal water service!)
In other words, as it exists, the LDPCSD was intentionally created to exploit all property owners within the LDP residential subdivision (who are mandatory customers of the CSD – the DESIGNATED DEEP POCKET FOR THE FRAUD FUNDING) to finance a special benefit water service (subsidized groundwater substitution to circumvent restrictions in WL11395) for the property owners of LAFCO ANNEXATIONS INTO THE DISTRICT (annexations which violated LAFCOs own operating regulations regarding such additions to the LDPCSD) that our district had no legal duty or moral obligation to supply SQUAT – much less a lower quality “blended water”! Yet the legal property owners in the subdivision have paid for this fraud since August 1980 when Tuolumne and Mariposa Counties created the LDPCSD to conceal the exploitation of water license 11395 held by the Merced Irrigation District for the purpose of developing vast portions of drought prone land. (AND……THE MID (holder of water license 11395) ALSO PICKED UP MORE MERCED RIVER WATER RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO SUPPLY WATER TO THESE LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTIES IN VIOLATION OF THE TERMS OF THEIR OWN WATER LICENSE WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PASSING ON THAT OBLIGATION ON OUR DISTRICT! FORCING OUR DISTRICT TO FURNISH WATER WE COULD NOT LEGALLY PROVIDE AND ESSENTIALLY FORCED THE DISTRICT INTO AN UNDEPENDABLE AND EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION! Everyone received a benefit in violating the regulations EXCEPT FOR THE MANDATORY CUSTOMERS PAYING THE BILLS IN THE SUBDIVISION!
Well hopefully the board secretary will fill in the missing information during the meeting or sometime later because I cannot just fill in the missing information without some sort of authentication especially since the CD provided was not marked from the office with the date either and as a “replacement disk” for the original that was mailed and never received, the recording date of this CD was February 11th, 2021 – an impossible meeting date.
Nothing but negligent leadership of our local water district since 2014, much less adequate representation of the exploited and victimized legal customers. You know, maybe a book wouldn’t be a waste of time? Need a book before the movie yeah? lol
Pledge of allegiance.
No public members for public comment.
LDPCSD board president Dan Hankemier had no report (surprised?)
GM Patrick McGowan: Intake at lake is now running. (refer to report)
saving money by doing work “in house”
discussing minutia ….. water tests…..how much…..
LEW HERE: (yawn) zzzzzzzzz (snoring) – I should be outside working!
president hankemier (Hanky) …. consent agenda…. committee appointments….(Syndie as usual had to keep the morons on track) ….. rate increase and how to hold a required public meeting….. blah blah blah having the public meeting at the high school (Syndie had to explain the elementary school was in Tuolumne County and we are in Mariposa County)……[LEW: Good grief!] GM: People don’t come to meetings – how soon could we do this? (Push through the Prop 218 rate increase)
GM suggests next month with an outdoor event….
[and we wonder why we have national elections like we do? Here is a perfect example on the local level……. bullshit…..all bullshit…. and we pay for it again, and again, and again…!]
Emery Ross said we’re doing this they (customers) have a chance to object and if they don’t and it passes, it’s done.
GM says the prop 218 rate increase notification will be sent to every ratepayer.
WE (LDPCSD RATE PAYERS WHO OBJECT TO A RATE INCREASE MUST EACH PROVIDE WRITTEN OPPOSITION TO THE INCREASE AND IF 50% +1 CUSTOMERS OBJECT IN WRITING – THE INCREASE FAILS!
TELEPHONE CALLS DON’T COUNT! EMAIL PROTESTS DO NOT COUNT! SCREAMING A MEETINGS DON’T COUNT.
IF A MAJORITY OF US (SPREAD ALL OVER THE COUNTRY) DO NOT OPPOSE THIS INCREASE IN WRITING – THE BOARD GETS THEIR RATE/FEE INCREASE AND WILL NEVER EXPLAIN WHY SUCH ADDITIONAL FUNDS ARE ACTUALLY NECESSARY SINCE THE LAST APPROVED PROP 218!
danny johnson wants to continue bragging on all their great accomplishments and paints a distorted picture as to why they legitimately need more money for greater good……danny johnson is a lying cheat (along with “Emery the OUTSIDE MIDPOU CATTLE RANCHING DEFECTOR ROSS” whose PROGRESSIVE BOARD orchestrated the return of a big crook like “Sneaky Pete” Kampa in 2014 (gave him $1 million in cash!) to finish the wrongful annexation plan Kampa started back in the mid 1990s before being caught, resigning and starting another controversy in McCloud CSD up north!
[WHERE’S THE #UC&ING MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT SHAPE FILE MAP PETER KAMPA AND YOUR BOARD USED TO RECONFIGURE OUR SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT and DISTRICT SERVICE AREA to MISREPRESENT BOUNDARIES and OBTAIN GOVERNMENT GRANT MONEY for development of groundwater wells for a subsidized groundwater substitution program for the LAFCO ANNEXATIONS KAMPA WRONGFULLY SET UP 20 years ago as a ROGUE GM?]
GM…suggested just arguing that they were bringing the rates up to where they should be anyway ……for projects like intake, barge….
Warren….may be a simple letter from the board of directors?
These FOTHER MUCKERS! have lied for several years and ignored valid questions from the public for years as well…. and now they lie even more about their past betrayals to cajole us into providing more money? WHERE IS THE GUARANTEE THEY WILL NOT DO THE SAME &UCKING THING AGAIN?
GM…suggested source water issues require the money? Yeah…..and where did the last ONE MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE LAST PROP 218 RATE INCREASE GO? TO SNEAKY PETE FRIGG’ N KAMPA AND HIS LAFCO ANNEXATION WATER EMPIRE SCAM FOR WHICH ALL MR WECS HAVE BEEN PAYING FAR MORE FOR THEIR WATER SERVICE THAN NECESSARY IF DISTRICT WAS RUN PROPERLY!
Perhaps promote… it as money for …..safe reliable water?….we need your money for public safety?…..These people are unbelievable and it makes me want to puke on the keyboard!
They hire a professional company to help them make us believe this is a legitimate unforeseeable circumstance requiring MORE MONEY FROM CUSTOMERS DURING A COVID-19 LOCK DOWN?……
Hankemier- something needs to be in the mail……
AGREED! LIKE AN EXPLANATION FOR NEVER CONTACTING THE STATE WATER BOARD TO CONFIRM WHAT YOU WERE DOING FOR MANY YEARS WAS EVEN LEGAL! I BEGGED YOU ASSHATS TO MAKE SUCH INQUIRY MANY TIMES DURING RECORDED PUBLIC MEETINGS AND YOU COMPLETELY IGNORED THAT EXTREMELY REASONABLE REQUEST!
GM — we have this (what is already prepared) We are not proposing a rate increase….the company we hired is proposing it. The firm we hired is proposing the increase. The board needs to focus on their recommendations…… COVID rules change day to day…..
johnson this facility is not large enough….
warren…. the lake ..park they got tables ….Syndie – everything is closed
johnson then the schools …
I WANT TO VOMIT! WISH I COULD SUPPORT A RATE INCREASE, BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST::::::::WHERE’S THE %UCKING MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT 1993 SHAPE FILE MAP WHICH KAMPA USED TO MISDIRECT AND RECONFIGURE THIS FRAUD OF A SPECIAL DISTRICT INTO A SUBSIDIZED GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION FACILITY FOR LAFCO ANNEXATIONS PETE KAMPA WRONGFULLY SET UP 20 YEARS AGO?
DOES THAT SHAPE FILE MAP EVEN EXIST?
A 900ac residential subdivision concealed from the public view for over 20 years? This does not happen without direct under the table county cooperation!
HOW DID WE GET HERE TO BEGIN WITH?
GM: we hired this company to help us, so let’s take their advice and move forward….
johnson suggesting places – and secretary must remind them our DISTRICT IS IN MARIPOSA COUNTY. HAD TO TELL JOHNSON TWICE!
These asshats don’t even know the community they represent!
Ross – they just need to know …. they don’t have to come to a meeting….they just have to write a letter in protest
(and then WE ARE SUPPOSED TO TRUST THE INFORMATION IS RECEIVED?
HELL I WOULDN’T BE REPORTING THIS “MYSTERY MEETING” CRAP RIGHT NOW UNLESS I HAD ON MY OWN FOLLOWED UP ON THE MISSING CD THAT WAS SUPPOSEDLY ALREADY MAILED TO ME!
THIS IS JUST like OUR 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!
TOTALLY MISREPRESENTED YET WE ARE TOLD
TO TRUST THE SYSTEM!
THESE ARE THE SAME TYPE OF CHEATS BUT ONLY ON A SMALLER SCALE!)
GM…this study was done with…… this firm is going to handle it with my help…. GM and FIRM will be answering questions at the public meeting
IS THIS THE SAME GM WHO NOW WANTS TO FOLLOW IN THE INFAMOUS FOOT STEPS OF FORMER GM/TREASURER “SNEAKY PETE” KAMPA AT THE CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION where Kampa has been for nearly 20 years as a director as well?
I honestly believed the CSDA was a worthwhile organization until witnessing “Sneaky Pete” Kampa destroy our district with the assistance of his powerful CSDA.
johnson- getting the rate increase approved will be too difficult to do if board starts tweaking contract with company WE PAID A LOT OF MONEY for their suggesting how to raise our rates….just pick a date and time and do it……. (asshats agreed)…..follow recommended program of the folks paid to show such defectors like these how to raise our rates while the enabling “EXPERTS” don’t know squat about our district circumstances and prior betrayals by SPECIAL INTEREST BORED DEFECTORS!
ok….send the notice….pick the place….
hanky….high school has all of that
johnson – set chairs 6 feet apart for a meeting people may or may not attend – there’s parking make it their (customers) one and only chance to say something if they miss it, too bad….one and only chance to protest…that’s it rates go up.
Yup, funny – ready for this? johnson says…..”It’s like voting you don’t vote on multiple days you vote on one day and it’s done”
Hasn’t this LYING ASSHAT been following what his corrupt DNC did with America’s 2020 election? Danny is a lying and duplicitous Duck!
GM….johnson….one meeting, one chance.
hanky- can’t we do it before February…
GM working on the logistics in getting it done….chatter…
Syndie stated for the last Prop 219 they had it in the evening at the school – but wasn’t sure about current Mariposa County rules and their own activities, Perhaps the meeting could be by “zoom meeting” that the company would set up? Provide facility for those without internet, most would rather sit in their house…but they can participate …..then provide sufficient time for them to send in written opposition
(need 50 +1 = majority to stop rate increase) MANY TIMES PEOPLE COMPLAIN AT MEETINGS AND SUCH BUT DO NOT SEND IN A WRITTEN PROTEST AT THE CORRECT TIME SO THE RATE INCREASE PASSES!
OUR ONLY CHANCE FOR WHAT WE SAY TO MATTER!
hanky- tentative date at the end of February?
Must be in Mariposa county.
hanky…so what’s the 23rd of February?
Syndie…when discussing the prior firetruck issue … we used the Deerwood office which is in Mariposa County… but parking wasn’t too good.
GM wants to go with it as soon as possible – would the virus closed high school permit such a meeting?
johnson…talking about time frame…have two meetings on the same day…1PM another later,or three meetings on same day…. health and well being…get folks to participate
(LOL WHAT? Participate like at monthly meetings with no customers present due to several years of ASSHAT DEFECTORS refusing to answer legitimate questions? All miserable pieces of shiff!)
johnson let NBS (company we’re paying $10,000+ dollars) figure out where to have it and how.
GM: NBS would prefer to not have anyone show up….laughs
let NBS do it as soon as possible…..
What date from sent notice letter to customer for them to respond with protest so it would count? no one knew.
GM we have room right here for it….room for parking …..
Ross when we did this before it was hours of screaming people at the meeting…we should emphasize customers don’t have to come to meetings, just send in your written protest.
GM says…the letter already says that….
hanky…so what we need…we approve the resolution …how should we address?…..
GM – table until I can address with more information…I’ll find a place, I’ll check the school district but I’m sure they’ll say no because of virus lock down….
Secretary…I thought he was going to contact NBS and have them set everything up?
Johnson…yeah we need an execution time let them set the schedule
warren – give them the authority to make it happen
hanky – let NBS do it
johnson – press button yes and let GM determine design and execution plan
You know, considering all the betrayal danny johnson’s PROGRESSIVE BOARD accomplished in harming customers, he might choose his words a bit more carefully. Repeatedly using the word EXECUTION might inspire an inappropriate “thought response” by already exploited and victimized customers. – lol
pages 20-22 district GM has responsibility to develop and determine the design, options, execution plan everything…. then we have smiley faces…. if it blows up it’s on Patrick…laughter
NBS – get their suggestions and GM would choose how to proceed and execute plan, time and location.
johnson calls it utilizing NBS
approved with one absent director ….
HA! FINALLY SOME INITIAL MISSING MEETING INFORMATION!
hanky doesn’t know what he’s doing….
GM- filter has a broken part which will be fixed soon
USDA cost assistance…..more drought funds for barge…. we can apply for additional funds
Ross does anyone know what this barge has cost? (laughter)
PERHAPS EXECUTION ISN’T …….
REMEMBER THAT! LAUGHTER AT HOW MUCH MONEY WAS THROWN AWAY ON THE KAMPA-BOARD COST INCREASES IN EVERYTHING!
GM discusses the many changes in the barge and reasons for the significant cost over runs.
SPIN IT ANYWAY YOU WANT—OUTRAGEOUS COSTS FOR EVERYTHING THE DISTRICT DID THANKS TO YOUR FORMER GM/TREASURER “SNEAKY PETE” KAMPA AND HIS DO NOTHING BOARD OF ASSHAT DEFECTORS WHO NOW WANT MR WECS TO VOLUNTARILY PAY THEM MORE MONEY BY NOT OBJECTING TO ANOTHER PROPOSITION 218 RATE INCREASE.
(As you know) I SAY NEVER! WITHOUT FIRST PROVIDING THE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT 1993 SHAPE FILE MAP WHICH WAS THE BASIS FOR THE YEARS OF FROLIC AND DEPARTURE FROM RESPONSIBLE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT WHERE OVER ONE MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE LAST PROPOSITION 218 RATE INCREASE (TO AVOID BANKRUPTCY) WAS HANDED OVER TO “SNEAKY PETE” KAMPA (without a background check) TO LEVERAGE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN STATE AND FEDERAL GRANTS (DESIGNATED FOR DROUGHT EMERGENCY PURPOSES FOR EXISTING CUSTOMER AND NOT CREATING NEW SERVICE CONNECTIONS) BUT ACTUALLY USED TO RECONFIGURE OUR SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT INTO A GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION FACILITY FOR OWNERS OF LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTIES OUTSIDE THE LEGAL MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED LDP SUBDIVISION WHICH KAMPA WRONGFULLY SETUP 20 YEARS AGO WHEN OPERATING AS A ROGUE GM THEN!
THIS BOARD NEEDS TO DEMONSTRATE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY BEFORE ANOTHER PROP 218 RATE INCREASE SHOULD EVEN BE CONSIDERED BY ALREADY VICTIMIZED MANDATORY CUSTOMERS OF THIS CURRENT FRAUD OF A CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT!
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHY WE HAD SUCH 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION FRAUD – Democrat grassroots up corruption and betrayal of the legal taxpaying citizens!
WOW. An entire meeting without mentioning the date or who was present, other than the fact one director was absent! Unbelievable just like our 2020 national election and brought to you by the same type of people – LIARS AND CHEATS WHO HIDE BEHIND WORDS LIKE DEMOCRACY, PUBLIC SERVICE, DEDICATION, INTEGRITY……terms quite distant from the activities they previously participated in which led us to this point right now.
Syndie asks for time
hanky: seventeen minutes after 2
INTO CLOSED SESSION
(NEXT CD FILE BEGINS)
Hankemier (Hanky): OK I’m going to close the closed session (gavel hammering lol)
Secretary: What time?
Hanky, at ahhh, at fourteen , fourteen minutes till four. I’m going to open up the the open session, (hammering – building a house? lol) and ah, report out…so ahhum, .. so ahhh, ….. what am I going to say…..?
Ross fills in for Hanky — Hanky asks secretary if what he said was OK.
another GM review in June…. everyone pleased with GM performance……(OF COURSE! DEFECTORS DO NOTHING!) more blah blah blah
LISTEN FOR YOURSELF – THE WHOLE THING WAS BRUTAL!
My best to you and yours, Lew
PS: A business generally has director assets, however, the LDPCSD since 2014 when they returned “SNEAKY PETE” Kampa as GM/Treasure has had “ASSHATS”.
These Asshat traitors to legal MR WECS (Merced River Water Entitled Customers) truly are BORED ASSHAT DEFECTOR Directors, or simply BAD DIRECTORS for short.
Here’s the audio of the two last meetings…..you’ll have to guess when they occurred. later!
