HOW MANY TIMES SINCE “THE RETURN OF KAMPA”?
How many times has this KAMPA failure to include page numbers come up with these unattached and/or agenda packet inserted reports? Either way – with no page numbers the process of meeting discussion is intentionally made much more difficult for everyone to literally be “ON THE SAME PAGE”. Devious little techniques like this are helpful for disingenuous “remote managers” like PETE KAMPA when incorrect information is sprinkled throughout a presentation. Another KLASSIC KAMPA example of the transparency actually involved in the operation of this community services district.
EXPERIENCE ISN’T EVERYTHING – INTEGRITY FAR MORE IMPORTANT!
Heck, even with four “very active” years of previous employment with our LDPCSD that involved the annexation process, Kampa still pretends to not comprehend a simple water license PLACE OF USE map for MERCED RIVER WATER UNDER WL11395. [Apparently this professional manager’s confusion was compounded with the inability to READ license restrictions either.] Kampa also REPEATEDLY REFUSED multiple public meeting requests to simply contact the State Water Board for the correct map.
What? Kampa says he doesn’t understand the map, refuses to contact the proper authority for confirmation of the correct map yet all the while CONTINUING TO DISPLAY AND REFER TO KNOWN INCORRECT MAPS on the LDPCSD boardroom wall and public agency website?
Then following his yearlong deception in pretending to be confused (while intentionally presenting disinformation to the public) – PETE KAMPA had the unmitigated gall to orchestrate the fabrication of a map with significantly enlarged POU BOUNDARIES using a $35,000 board approved digital mapping project. (Board again completely ignored public warnings that KAMPA would indeed abuse such a project to OUTSIDE POU BENEFIT.) The resulting KAMPA POU MAP was based on an obscure 24 year old “SHAPE FILE” (map) prepared for another project (ultimately abandoned) that was still in the approval process during KAMPA’s first tour of employment with the LDPCSD. Imagine that?
Consider this- even AFTER the September 28th, 2017 STATE WATER BOARD NOTICE OF VIOLATION WHICH INCLUDED NUMEROUS STATEMENTS OF POU CLARIFYING FACT – PETE KAMPA IS STILL ARROGANTLY DISPLAYING THESE KNOWN INCORRECT MAPS TO THE PUBLIC!
Does KAMPA’s continued presentations of known incorrect information DEMONSTRATE A CONSCIOUS REJECTION FOR TRUTH and FACT?
Does continued provision of false information now (in light of the truth) suggest a reluctance to abide by state water law in the future?
PETE KAMPA has a twenty year documented history of misrepresenting the LDPCSD PLACE OF USE BOUNDARIES and has WASTED SUBSTANTIAL LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL RESOURCES IN THE PROCESS yet BOARD DIRECTORS apparently could care less and continue to approve “ALL THINGS KAMPA” without adequate research or understanding of foreseeable negative consequences. (The last board approved RESOLUTION was based on obvious false information contained in the supporting data presented by Kampa and was pointed out to the board by the public yet the Board still approved it (after having to recess the meeting and waiting for two absent director “ringer votes”) under the apparent rationalization that customers were still receiving water so everything must be OK.)
Are Board Directors knowingly involved in this KAMPA SCHEME that has spanned decades?
Regardless, PETE KAMPA is quite the example of a professional general manager/board treasurer – not to mention recent recipient of the prestigious CSDA government transparency award.
YUP, the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION must be very proud of, have much confidence in, and are very trusting of, their twenty year DIRECTOR PETE KAMPA. Why else would he still be there? Go figure.
My best to you and yours, Lew
