    How Do You Sleep At Night? 
    I contracted at the district. The general lack of ethics was joked about constantly.

    The three midgets that run the IT department in descending order:

    a-The idiot who came highly recommended by a senior staff member (Deputy)
    b-The Spineless One (Unit Manager)
    c-The Sociopath (Help Desk Supervisor)

    These three abusive A**HOLES should be investigated!!!!

    They are just as guilty as ANYONE at the district. I’m sure everyone is more concerned with the CEO and the larger, more exposed issues at hand. But these “men”, probably handle quite a bit of the taxpayer dollars, and they, in turn, should be looked at as a department. They should be investigated for prejudice, impartial treatment of employees, nepotism, racism, falsifying documents, destroying evidence in the form of e-mails and documents, and in general: MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE TO PUT IN A LEGITIMATE 8 HOURS AND GET PAID FOR A HARD DAY WORKED!

    Guys like this are on easy street at the SCVWD and it’s just one cover-up after another. They know where the bodes are buried. Maybe they get a cut from the Board Room upgrades??? They are like corporate mobsters. But that would be giving them too much credit. They are like COCKROACHES, and dear Mr. District Attorney please be ready when you turn on the lights……

    SOME RESPONSES FROM NEW ARTICLES ,  GET READY TO SPEND ANOTHER 3 MILLION FOR ANOTHER BOARDROOM DURING DROUGHT!
    1. Sorry beg to differ, running the board meetings and working at the district, i see the waste, fraud, the RMC deal mirrors every dept, including IT and the board room which taxpayers have already spent over 3 million and they want to build a new one when they let this got to waste by orders from managers not to touch equipment, with Beaus blessings. Sure Gary is doing his thing but myself and other workers have proven to him the fraud going on in the board room, we have been complaining for 5 years. so the chair and many others are doing little, sure fire him, but the board rubber stamps everything and listens to no one but themselves. read the audit 2012 it shows how upper managers operate and wonder why there is not more lawsuits? Yes they do some good but overall the way workers are treated, fraud, managers with little or no training, leads to this. If the district was doing a great job they would not be wasting millions on wireless, equipment that sits, multi EOC centers, ear pieces, food, perks, etc. etc. etc.

      thank you, the Truth is long coming, and people will pay, KARMA IS DEADLY! i gave heart and soul to that dump, only to be lied to, personal items thrown away, AS YOU SAY SPENT MORE TIME DEALING WITH BS THEN WORK. BUT AS AUDIT 2012 SAYS THE DISTRICT IS RICH WITH TAXPAYER MONEY AND THEY ARE SURPRISED THERE IS NOT MORE LAWSUITS. I KNOW THEY HAVE PAID OUT MANY AND MANY GOLDEN PARACHUTES FOR FIRED EXS, THEY EVEN LIED ABOUT HOW MANY COMPUTERS WERE MISSING SAYING ONLY TWO, WHEN IN IT WE KNEW OF OVER 100. MY EMAIL IS READY AND AVAILABLE, AND SO CAN A LEGAL TEAM BE READY, SO LETS DO THIS OF COURSE THE

      a-The idiot who came highly recommended by a senior staff member (Deputy)
      b-The Spineless One (Unit Manager)
      c-The Sociopath (Help Desk Supervisor)

      WILL WALK WITH A NICE PAYCHECK, ON TAXPAYER DIME

    It would sure be nice if they went after managers in the IT dept, that relieved my friends medical and personal issues.
    again read the audit 2102 it explains all. Just a shame IT managers can lie about stolen laptops, equipment in the board room, how much was spent on the board room, this is pure RMC/IT BS. hE TOLD ME GEORGE KAMENJATI TOLD STAFF PAUL WAS A WALKING PHARMACY, BI POLAR, AND WAS GOING TO COME IN THERE AND KILL PEOPLE, GEORGE K IS THE MUSLIM AND THE ONE THAT YOU SHOULD BE DOUBLE CHECKING HIS BACK GROUND, AND HIS MANY TRIPS TO THE MIDDLE EAST,

    SO BE PREPARED TO SHELL OUT ANOTHER 3 MILLION IN TAX DOLLARS FOR A NEW BOARD ROOM.

        • I’ve worked with a lot of these technologies over the years. Not even in 2001 dollars was that an appropriate amount for a video conference system with all the bells and whistles (I mean,, you can build something that costs that much with Studio grade cameras and what not, but not needed)

          I too am a tech, and I find tech issues in politics and public service is nothing more than a gaping black hole to a lot of voters. Not a lot of people spend as much of their free time learning… or relearning this craft year after year. The parameters for say, a journalist never changes, but in our line of work it changes constantly, new technologies and buzzwords are often carried to the ears of management through the ether of gossip with no real concern for the costs implementing them.

          Basically what I’m saying is, nobody is going to care about IT costs. Maybe it’s time our local politicians start making a budgeting board for its IT costs, but without popular support nobody is going to even bother.

    1. thank you, that’s what i have been trying to say, (point 3 mill is what they spent on the system before i came i fixed most things with another 200k,)and they want to spend another, the 1st board room was so much they built it and forgot to put IT in and to pretty much ripped it apart to get network and av in, pretty sure the whole golden palace went to grand jury around 2000, i was hired to fix all the mistakes, and they still want another system, and as you say nobody but a few techs care about the cost. the water district did start it ad hoc committee staffed by directors and given or feeding the same old lies,
      Its not energy star compliant(hello they are pulling at straws on that one)
      Needs to be hd, when the problem is end user bandwidth.
      AMX cannot handle voting ( when staff so a demo on amx voting)
      and pretty much everything they say the system cannot do it can or can do with under 75k in modifications
      this post has the biased staff report and my rebuttal and others rebuttal.

      THE PROBLEM IS STAFF HAS NEVER TOLD THE BOARD HOW TO USE EQUIPMENT, NEVER TOLD THEM WHAT THERE IS. YOU THINK RMC IS A FRAUD THE IT DEPT IS JUST AS BIG OF A FRAUD AND WASTING TAX DOLLARS BY THE MINUTE. AND THIS ALONG WITH MISTREATMENT OF STAFF, ETHICS VIOLATIONS, LIES, FRAUD THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.

      THIS IS tip of iceberg we have complained about waste, fraud, management etc, but they just get worse just in it there is millions in laptop/pc thefts, goerge and frank running the IT dept into the ground, read the public records on boardroom fraud and i have see even more running the board meetings, all you need to do is ask.

      INFO WHERE I REFUTE ASHU GEORGE WITH TRUTH ABOUT WHAT SYTEM CAN DO AND WHAT WAS BOUGHT  ….

      ASK ABOUT EOC, I DESIGNED IT PAID 100+ K BUT GK STOPPED IT AND HAD A NEW SYSTEM BUILT, MY SYSTEM WAS APPROVED, STATE OF ART, AND VERY REAL, SO 100+K MINUS 20 %RESTOCKING FOR GK, WANTING , HIS IDEA, WHEN IT WAS EOC, ROOM ANYWAY.

      ASK ABOUT RAY WALK AROUND THE LAKE, ( OR OTHER TECH WORKERS WALK AROUND THE PARK?OR HIS CLASSES, OR GEORGE ELL ME HE WAS TRYING TO HELP ME, WHILE TELL OTHERS, I SHOULD BE FIRED, GEORGE IS THE ONE WHO CREATED THIS MESS, AND LOSS OF TRUST. OR ASK ANY TECHS ABOUT GEORGE TELLING THEM OF MY MEDICAL HISTORY OR DIRECTING ME TO HIS MEDICAL WEBSITE.

EQUIPMENT IS AT OLDEST 2004 BUT ALL STATE OF ART, AND BEST USE OF TECHNOLOGY, AND MY AND YOUR TAX DOLLAR, THIS ROOM HAS MORE BELLS THEN HIGHER GOVT ROOMS.

      The primary objectives for the technology upgrade are as follows: AND I AND OTHERS CAN RIP THIS REPORT APART WHY IT’S 99% LIES.

      A. Improve the Boardroom experience for the public by implementing a state-of-the-art audio visual, (WE CAN ADD LIGHTING, SMOKE, AND OTHER ENHANCEMENTS CONTROLLED AND RUN BY THE CONTROL SYSTEM, DEPENDING ON DEFINITION OF WHAT YOU WANT A MINOR MASTER UPGRADE MIGHT NEED TO HAPPEN. LESS THAN 10K.)
      system that is social media friendly.ANOTHER OPERATOR EITHER THERE OR REMOTE MAKING COMMENTARY PER SCVWD LINE. ( IT ALREADY IS AND CAN BE MORE IF IT PERMITS PROGRAMMING AND MAYBE 5K, BUT IT’S HOOKED INTO THE INTERNET,AND DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF SOCIAL MEDIA, A COMMUNICATIONS PERSON COULD DO THAT FROM THEIR DESK.. THE SYSTEM COULD BE ON 5 SEC DELAY TO ADD SCRIPT, PHONE ETC.)
      B. Create a high quality, user-friendly AV system with enhanced capabilities for person(s) with disabilities.( already is state of art uhf assisted listening, and the best screen resolution @1024×768 hd will make it harder to see)
      C. The audio visual system should be able to support a virtual Boardroom that allows for virtual ( SIMPLE SOFTWARE PACKAGE FROM AMX A CONTROL SYSTEM ALREADY INSTALLED, DEPENDING ON DEFINITION OF VIRTUAL. A MASTER UPGRADE MAYBE BE NEEDED, 20K. BUT MAIN PART OF SYSTEM)
      participation of the public and social media (Upon approval by the Board).
      D. The system should be able to support an electronic voting (e-voting) system (Upon approval by the
      Board) in the near future. (WE HAVE ALREADY DEMO’D AND GEORGE HAS THE REQUIRED AMX UPGRADE EMAIL, PRETTY SURE THE TECH DOES ALSO.)
      E. Implement an end-to-end system that complies with the latest standards of high definition broadcast. (THEN WHAT WILL VIEWERS DO WITH THEIR SMALLER FONT AND SMALLER/WIDER SCREEN? HAVE YOU ASKED THE PUBLIC, NOT JUST STAFF)
      F. Based upon the stakeholder review, incorporate new features and enhancements to improve the
      experience of a Boardroom event.
      (LIGHTING, SMOKE, SUBWOOFERS CAN EASILY BE ADDED, HOWEVER, YOU MAY WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE ROOM, ITS NOT A BOARD ROOM BUT A CHURCH, YOU WILL NEVER BE EITHER HAPPY OR HAVE AS GOOD OF GEAR AS YOU DO NOW, THE BOARDROOM IS EVEN ON THE SAME NETWORK AND EQUIPMENT IS ALL CONNECTED TO ALL ROOMS, AND ALL COMMUNICATE TOGETHER, SO DON’T FORGET THOSE ROOMS WILL NEED CHANGING ALSO, OR SOME OF THE GEAR.)

      BACKGROUND:
      The current audio visual system was designed in 1997 and built in 2000. The core and the functionality of the
      ( WHAT IS SAD IS ONLY THE RACKS AND AMPLIFIERS ARE SOME ARE ORIGINAL, BUT THEY ALSO ARE DIGITAL CORE(AMPS) AND THE OUTPUT WILL ALWAYS BE ANALOG. THE OLDEST AROUND 2004/5 IS THE DIGITAL AND STATE OF THE ART AUDIO/ DIGITAL ROUTER PROCESSING ALREADY SET TO HANDLE NOISE CANCELING FOR VC. YOU CAN OBSERVE THE MAIN EQUIPMENT FROM ANYWHERE OR WORK IT, BUT THINK THEY TOOK IT OFF THE NETWORK?? AND MY NEWEST WAS UP TO 2012 BUT MAJOR GEAR 2006, 2008 AND IS PERFECT GEAR,
      system was (WAS AS IN OVER 10YRS AGO) analog-based. A minor(90k) PLUS MAYBE 45K IN OTHER UPGRADES, retrofit was performed in 2006 to add additional( NO FEATURES ADDED WIRING, SPEAKERS, I ADDED ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES 2008-2012.) INCLUDING DIGITAL, TAPING, RECORDING, VC, CAMERAS FOLLOW SPEAKER, REQUEST TO SPEAK,, DIGITAL RECORDING, CAMERAS TO RECORD EVERY ANGLE, WHAT IS REALLY NEEDED IS STAFF TO TELL THE DIRECTORS HOW TO USE THE EQUIPMENT. )

      features based upon user
      feedback. (JUST OUT RIGHT LIES) OVER 200K HAS BEEN ADDED INCLUDING DIGITAL, RECORDING, AUDIO DIGITAL PROCESSING AND VIDEO CONFERENCING) ETC ETC.

      The technology is obsolete, and very hard to support and maintain on a regular basis. The reliability of this outdated

      ( ONLY BECAUSE GK ORDERED WORK TO STOP AND THERE IS EMAIL TO THIS, ALL EQUIPMENT PURCHASED SITS)

      system is unpredictable, and on many occasions it has experienced failures. Such failures sometimes ( THIS IS JUST NOT TRUE, MAYBE A FEW MINUTES, BUT WE HAVE THE EQUIPMENT TO QUICKLY SET UP TO RUN AUDIO AND PRESENTATIONS, AS WE HAVE TO USE IT WHEN THE SHOW GOES ON THE ROAD?

      ( HOW CAN IT BE HARD TO SUPPORT WHEN OVER 25 LOCAL COMPANY S WILL GLADLY WORK THERE FOR ISSUES/PROBLEM, I’M ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR HELP, AND GLADLY HELP)
      ASK GEORGE WHY HE STOPPED MAINTENANCE?

      have resulted in expensive repair costs, and potential delays in bringing the system online for the meetings.
      (They have spent no more than 10K sInce i left, they want the system to fail) plus 1000s of dollars in new gear just sits.)

      Another challenge Finding professional support for the existing system by mainstream vendors and
      manufacturers is also very challenging. The components of the system also do not meet the latest ENERGY
      STAR rating standards.
      ( THIS IS FOR WASHING MACHINE ETC, ANY ENGINEER KNOWS AV EQUIPMENT DOES NOT REQUIRE THIS AS THEY ARE SOLID STATE, THEY HAD TO DIG DEEP FOR THIS) iF IT WAS NOT PUT IN WHAT WAS A BATHROOM A LOCATED BEHIND AV AND AMX CONTROL GEAR BOUGHT AND, SITS TO CONTROL GEAR BETTER, JUST SITS.
      The new system will enhance transparency as recommended in the recent audit. It will also provide a better (EVERYTHING IS ALREADY TRANSPARENT UNLESS YOU DO NOT POST IT. ONLINE, BACK UP DIGITAL TAPES, AUDIO, 6 CAMERA ANGLES ETC.)
      customer experience online when community members are viewing Board meetings remotely. THAT’S A BANDWIDTH ISSUE.

      COMMITTEE AGENDA MEMO
      SUBJECT: Technology Upgrade of the Boardroom (Audio/Visual System)
      RECOMMENDED ACTION:
      This is an information only item and no action is required.
      SUMMARY:
      Boardroom audio visual is extensively used for the purpose of Board public meetings, general District and
      community events that are business, educational, outreach or celebratory in nature, and by District’s
      departments, divisions and units for various group meetings. The system uses dated technology that does not
      meet the current digital and high definition broadcasting standards.
      Staff has performed extensive additional review of the system along with a stakeholder input. In order to
      comply with the latest high definition broadcast standards, and features, staff recommends a major technology
      upgrade of the audio visual system in the Boardroom. The estimated project cost, including design,
      construction, staff labor, and contingency is $600,000.
      The primary objectives for the technology upgrade are as follows:
      A. Improve the Boardroom experience for the public by implementing a state-of-the-art audio visual
      system that is social media friendly.
      B. Create a high quality, user-friendly AV system with enhanced capabilities for person(s) with disabilities.
      C. The audio visual system should be able to support a virtual Boardroom that allows for virtual
      participation of the public and social media (Upon approval by the Board).
      D. The system should be able to support an electronic voting (e-voting) system (Upon approval by the
      Board) in the near future. it can we already had a meeting with minor upgrades to screens (the amx master can be programmed so voting can take place on the member amx screen result displayed overhead and online.)
      E. Implement an end-to-end system that complies with the latest standards of high definition broadcast. ( MOST 90% OF PEOPLE CANNOT VIEW HD DO TO AMERICAN BAD CONNECTIONS RATES.)
      F. Based upon the stakeholder review, incorporate new features and enhancements to improve the
      experience of a Boardroom event. ( FIREWORKS ITS A PUBLIC MEETING YOU HAVE WHAT ANY BOARD ROOM HAS) AND MORE.
      BACKGROUND:
      The current audio visual system was designed in 1997 and built in 2000. The core and the functionality of the
      system was analog-based. A minor retrofit was performed in 2006 to add additional features based upon user
      feedback.

      The technology is obsolete, and very hard to support and maintain on a regular basis. The reliability of this outdated
      system is unpredictable, and on many occasions it has experienced failures. Such failures sometimes
      have resulted in expensive repair costs, and potential delays in bringing the system online for the meetings.( WHEN AND SHOW THE REPAIRS)
      Another challenge Finding professional support for the existing system by mainstream vendors and
      manufacturers is also very challenging. The components of the system also do not meet the latest ENERGY
      STAR rating standards.( MAYBE YOU HAVE NOT LOOKED BUT THESE ARE NOT WASHING MACHINE, BUT FINE USE AND LOW ENERGY ELECTRONICS, AMPLIFIERS WILL NEVER HAVE ENERGY STAR, THAT’S GOING REAL DEEP MR IT MANAGER WITH OUT A MSE,
      The new system will enhance transparency as recommended in the recent audit. It will also provide a better
      customer experience online when community members are viewing Board meetings remotely. ( FOR 200 PEOPLE, GRANICUS IS FINE AS IT IS) ASK YOUR TECH OR CALL ME)

      SUMMARY:
      Boardroom audio visual is extensively used for the purpose of Board public meetings, general District and
      community events that are business, educational, outreach or celebratory in nature, and by District’s
      departments, divisions and units for various group meetings. The system uses dated technology that does not
      meet the current digital and high definition broadcasting standards.
      Staff has performed extensive additional review of the system along with a stakeholder input. In order to
      comply with the latest high definition broadcast standards, and features, staff recommends a major technology
      upgrade of the audio visual system in the Boardroom. The estimated project cost, including design,
      construction, staff labor, and contingency is $600,000. (WRONG ADDING STAFF TIME AND ITEMS NOT DONE BY AV WILL SHOOT COST TO OVER 2 MILLION)
      ( LETS NOT FORGET THE STAFF TIME AND ELECTRICAL, AND THINGS AV CONTRACTORS WHICH THERE ARE 100S WILL TO WORK WITH WHATS THERE ASK YOUR TECH, IT STILL WILL EXCEED 1.5 MILLION ALL DO THT FACT GEORGE STOP WORK ON THE OLD AND ALL THE EQUIPMENT AND PR RECORDS ARE THERE, ITS NOT THE PUBLIC THAT NEEDS HD ITS YOU STAFF LYING THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON OVER 4 YEARS.)

      The primary objectives for the technology upgrade are as follows:
      A. Improve the Boardroom experience for the public by implementing a state-of-the-art audio visual
      (SYSTEM IS STATE OF ART, REMOTELY CONTROLLED ANYWHERE IS THE WORLD, STANDARD 1024X768 FOR VIEWING EVERYONE CAN SEE, THE SYSTEM IS SOCIAL FRIENDLY, JUST CREATE AN ACCOUNT LIKE I DID FOR AV YOUTUBE OF PEOPLES PROJECTS, DUAL SCREEN SIGNAL CAN BE SENT TO 100%OF THE ROOMS. 70% OF THE ROOMS VIA AV PLATES AND OR CAT 5/6. HD IS JUST A WAST OF TAX PAYERS MONEY THE US UNLIKE THE DISTRICT DOES NOT HAVE A 100mb SYSTEM MAYBE 1.5 IF THAT AT BEST TRY WATCHING HD ON 1.5 Mb WILL NOT HAPPEN, THERE IS PRESS FEEDS S DIGITAL RECORDING OF BOTH AUDIO AND VIDEO AND TRANSFER DIGITALLY TO NETWORKS OR WHAT EVER WE EVEN HAVE ARE OWN CABLE SYSTEM, I CAN GO ON LIKE JOY STICKS FOR CAMERAS, THE CAMERAS WILL FOLLOW WHO IS SPEAKING IF USING RTS RIGHT, AND IF THAT SYSTEM DOES N OT WORK THERE IS ANOTHER 200k OF EQUIPMENT IN THE STOREROOM UNUSED TO DO EVENTS, OR RUN THE BOARD MEETING, THEY HAVE IN EAR MONITOR AND OVER THE EAR MICROPHONES DO THEY USE THEM NO.)

      system that is social media friendly. ( IT IS)

      B. Create a high quality, user-friendly AV system with enhanced capabilities for person(s) with disabilities. (ALREADY UPGRADES TO UHF ASSISTED LISTING, AND MONITORS CAN BE SET UP)
      C. The audio visual system should be able to support a virtual Boardroom that allows for virtual
      participation of the public and social media (Upon approval by the Board).
      D. The system should be able to support an electronic voting (e-voting) system (Upon approval by the
      Board) in the near future. (THE AMX SYSTEM CAN BE EASILY CODED AND 3 TOUCH PANELS ADDED TO HANDLE THIS GK WAS AT DEMO)

      E. Implement an end-to-end system that complies with the latest standards of high definition broadcast.
      F. Based upon the stakeholder review, incorporate new features and enhancements to improve the
      experience of a Boardroom event.

      feedback.
      (THIS IS UNTRUE OVER $100K HAS BEEN SPENT IN THE BR ITS FULLY DIGITAL, THEY JUST WILL NOT TELL THE BOARD WHAT THEY HAVE, THE LAST UPGRADE WAS NOT FROM USER FEED BACK BUT TO UPGRADE THE SYSTEM, ALMOST $80K AND ANOTHER $40K HAS BEEN SPENT SINCE THEN BUT THE IT DEPT REFUSES TO TELL THE TRUTH, GET THE DOCUMENTS FROM PURCHASING, THEY HAVE UNUSED EQUIPMENT, OPEN PO ETC, ASK THE WORKERS NOT THE LAIRS.)

      system is unpredictable, and on many occasions it has experienced failures. Such failures sometimes
      have resulted in expensive repair costs, and potential delays in bringing the system online for the meetings.
      Another challenge Finding professional support for the existing system by mainstream vendors and
      manufacturers is also very challenging. The components of the system also do not meet the latest ENERGY
      STAR rating standards.
      ( I CAN SUPPLY YOU WITH AT LEAST 20 CERTIFIED AND QUALIFIED TECH COMPANIES WILLING AND WAITING FOR WORK.)

      The new system will enhance transparency as recommended in the recent audit. It will also provide a better ( IF THIS IS TRANSPARENT WHERE IS THE 15 PAGES REPORT DROPPED OFF OR THE INFO AT LAST AV Upgrades
      customer experience online when community members are viewing Board meetings remotely). ( that can happen via amx which there is open po.\)
