SANTA CLARA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT FLOODING

       SANTA CLARA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT FLOODING

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/02/22/san-jose-flood-mayor-clear-failure-delayed-warning/

from SJMN “If this amount of runoff hasn’t been seen in many decades then the planners and hydrologists would have a hard time figuring out where the flood prone areas along the rivers and streams would be vulnerable to overflow and flooding. I didn’t hear one mention of Santa Clara Valley Water District in this story. It’s their job to clean the creeks and remove debris every year. A lot of ‘water tax’ money is spent every year to do so. Where was the Murky News reporter who is supposed to know this and why didn’t the reporter ask some questions and get some response from the SCVWD spokesperson? The District was surely watching the creek levels with their remote monitoring SCADA system. They are responsible for getting the raw creek level information out to the City of San Jose and all other concerned agencies.”
right the have gauges on a system SCADA that transmits water level at bridges etc, but who was monitoring that?

A note of correction for you…Anderson is still not fixed and is limited to 50% capacity. It is due to be demolished in 2017 and rebuilt. I am not holding my breath that the work will even commence in 2017.

Agenda

http://valleywater.org/About/ITAdHocAgendaMinutes.aspx


I WILL COME TO ANY MEETING AND SHOW YOU THE EQUIPMENT, THE PURCHASE PAPERS, AND SUPPLY  CONTRACTORS THAT WILL TELL YOU WE CAN SUPPORT THIS SYSTEM, OR WE INSTALLED THAT EQUIPMENT.
1. Has staff explained that the amx system can do voting, and request to speak as it does now. and that there is an open po with the programmer to have joystick control of ea camera,(( but not done as GK stopped work/SEE EMAIL)  Ask about the 10k of amx processing equipment gk had me buy before i retired/was forced out, but never installed)
2.  HD is not the answer as most people do not have fast internet connections and its bells  and whistles,  flat panels, you have flat panels.
3.  Has staff explained if you want to Skype you can do it now as the room is full of computers hooked to the system.  all you need is a staff person to handle it, that’s free, just download app, but you don’t need Skype, you have a video conferencing system(tandberg now Cisco)( can handle ip, isdn and phone calls  COST 77k$ per Larry wilson).


4.  Has staff told you that people can already call in as we installed a state of the art digital video conferencing system,  this equipment is still up to date.
5.  Has staff been truthful in say the system is 100 % analog no i replaced 75% of the audio and video processing so it is digital, as is the recording of the meetings  both video and audio.  This system can also record committee meetings, just turn cameras, and start recording. this is also digital video record, and audio is also captured on sd cards.  Also digital.
6.  HAS staff explained to you that we can do split screens, we can enlarge images, we can send, hook up and piece of equipment that comes into that board room, from digital to analog.
7. Has staff explained what the district cost will be, you cannot get that room to be rebuilt on 700k plus add the engineer’s cost, staff time already, and by the time the punch list is worked out it will be like the first board room where you sit costing over 2 million, you will want your own person running it not some temp/CONTRACTOR as is going to happen, but the sad thing is, yes its a nice room, but its not a room made for those types of meetings.
8.  This is my tax money just as much as yours, as Gary told ngoc why has nobody been fired, well why did George stop work in the board room, and not get fired? see the email in attachments.
why was George allowed to discuss with ray my marriage and medical problems, why  is George allowed to take av techs around the lake to tell them how things will be?
why has George been allowed to manipulate the techs, contractors and his staff, they are afraid of him.
9.  Has any of the staff told you that of 2 years ago the wireless microphone (frequencies) were sold by the FCC, which means that you could be fined, i told George of this before i left, as they did it with the original frequencies, so cell phones can have more bandwidth.
10.  I enjoyed working here but when the av MANAGEMENT cannot do there job, this is what happens.
11.  WHO IS PAYING FOR ELECTRICAL, WOODWORK, DRYWALL, PAINTING, BE SURE TO ADD THAT COST.
12.  IF PHIL IS A CTS WHY DID HE NOT SEE THE WIRELESS MICS WERE NOT SOLD OFF 2 YRS AGO MY THE FCC, ADD ANOTHER 20K, FOR  JUST 4 WIRELESS HANDHELDS AND LAVS?
13.  Staff Training: Clear Presentations & Mic Technique x OK Training/procedural Issue, MAYBE STAFF TRAINING AND A COUPLE OF UPGRADES IS ALL YOU NEED. Also what wrong with the beyer goosenecks, its what the board wanted, and if told how to use them they work fine.
14.  Simplify Rear Round Table  MOUNT CEILING THIS EQUIPMENT WAS BOUGHT IN 2011.
15..Provide Better Lighting From Front, Side and Back of Subjects x OK New cameras will operate better in low light conditions,  THE CAMERAS ARE FINE IS THE LIGHTING AS WAS TOLD TO TOM SPADA WHEN I WAS THERE.
16.  I WILL NOT EVEN BOTHER GOING OVER THE MATRIX AS MOST IF NOT ALL OF THAT CAN HAPPEN NOW.   IF YOU WOULD HAVE LISTEN TO THE AV TECH INPUTS (SEE HANDOUT), THEN MAYBE YOU MIGHT BE CLOSE.   I WISH YOU LUCK.   MOST IF NOT ALL OF THIS CAN HAPPEN NOW,  HOWEVER YOU HAVE NOT GOT THE RIGHT COSTS, NOR THE RIGHT ENGINEERS, NOR HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF THE USER’s, WHO STILL DON’T USE THE EQUIPMENT RIGHT. NOR HAVE YOU ASKED STAFF WHAT CAN THIS EQUIPMENT DO?
HURRY YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO ADD TO THE COST, FIGURE THE ACOUSTICS OUT, AND ASK HOW DID WE GET ENGINEERS WITH NO BOARDROOM EXPERIENCE.  Remember if you cannot grasp simple equipment, how will you manage higher tech?
Does staff and board  read employee reports, or any of the tapes, PR’s, expense reports etc.  we have provided links rebuttals but the board, managers just disregard the info, and keep wasting tax money.
 

AS DUG MUIRHEAD SAID YES I SAW THE SYSTEM break, SO IT SHOULD BE REPLACED, WELL WHAT WAS THE CAUSE OF THAT, GEORGE KAMENJATI STOPPED ALL WORK IN THE ROOM SO THINGS WILL FAIL, HE WOULD NOT EVEN LET RAY GO PICK UP THE TECH DRAWINGS FROM ME AT HOME, NOR GET ALL THE KEYS.

This is your old av Sr tech, if you have ever been hooded winked it’s now, why do you think ray and i have been submitting papers on what kamenjati/fung/ravi.and ashu have done( stopped maintenance so the room will fail, paid contracts that have not been done just like rmc.)
has anyone from it staff told you about speaking into a microphone ( have they let me explain it or ray, have you seen members of Congress speak on c span? they speak directly into the mic, if others are not speaking directly into the mic, that also means YOU will not be able to hear them)   not saying your wrong but staff has not instructed you on use, nor have they let ray fix problems.  I was told when i was there not to talk to you about equipment.

Where is the Stakeholders matrix mentioned in the Handout from the IT Ad Hoc Committee meeting June 22, 2015 item 5.2 (page 79) which is dated 4-1-15?

HAVE YOU LOOKED AT RGD NOT ONE BOARD ROOM

THIS ROOM IS UNIQUE, ANYONE CAN BUILD A ROOM
BUT THEY HAVE NOT ONE BOARDROOM UNDER THERE BELT.


http://rgdacoustics.com/index.php/projects/commercial/
THEY MIGHT BE ACOUSTICAL ENGINEERS, BUT SO WAS  MUZAK  AND SLATER AND ASSOCIATES, AND LOOK WHAT YOU GOT IN 1999.  THEY THEN SUB IT OUT TO A ONE MAN FIRM, THEN YOU HIRED GOELTZ TO FIX AND REPLACE MOST IF NOT ALL OF THE AUDIO AND VIDEO GEAR.
AS TO THE ENGINEER SAYING YOU WILL NEED 37 CONVERTERS IS JUST NOT TRUE, A TOP OF THE LINE CONVERTER CAN BE PLACED WITH THE TECH WHO WOULD HANDLE INPUTS OF VARIOUS DEVICES. AND A GOOD UNIT IN THE RACK TO HANDLE OTHER INPUTS IS ALL THAT IS REQUIRED.
THIS FIRM HAS BEEN PAID LIKE THE FIRST FIRM TO TELL THE IT DEPT AND YOU WANT YOU WANT, WHEN THIS IS INSTALLED IT WILL BE 5-10 YEARS OLD.  and there is no guarantee that hdmi,sd or whatever will be in favor.  Worry about the draught, add a couple of pieces and find out who stopped adding pieces so you can do a few of the things it cannot.
AND HAS THE ENGINEERS TOLD YOU HOW THEY PLAN TO USE THERE ACOUSTICAL EXPERIENCE, AND HOW THEY PLAN TO TRAIN THE END USER TO TALK INTO THE MICROPHONE, HAVE THEY ACCOUNTED FOR IMPROPER USE AND A BAD ROOM DESIGN?   
And them pushing you on this hdmi/sunshine act, is 100% wrong, you still have very old legacy computer systems, that are contracted out.  Again ask any local av company if this cannot be maintained and or repaired, it can, you do not need this level of upgrades, nor is 4k required, for the 100 people that watch.

AGAIN THIS COMPANY HAS BEEN PAID TO TELL YOU THIS BY NON OTHER THAN THE MANIPULATOR IN THE IT DEPT, AND UPPER STAFF.
 
again thank you

WHAT A DUMB B ITCH, JUST AS SICK AS GOVT PEOPLE THAT WASTE THE  TAXPAYERS MONEY AT FLIP OF SWITCH, WHY DOES NOT ONE COME, THEY DON’T GIVE A SHIT, AS THEY GOVT DOES NOT LISTEN!  OH MY MINDS FUCKED UP, WET MY PANTS LYING ABOUT TECHNOLOGY ISSUES, FALSE FLAG IF I EVER HEARD ONE EVEN IN LOCAL H2O POLITICS, SPEND TAXES

AND THE WINNER FOR THE LEAST CONVINCING PERFORMANCE GOES TOO….

“Oh I’m sorry- I don’t know why I am messing up tonight; maybe it was because we had some technologies issues tonight so I’m kind of blanking out on it.”
(“I think your right” someone shouts surrounded by laughter) Item 8.1 Audio Visual Upgrade!!” COME ON DOWN!!!

From the opening comments on Fluoridation in our drinking water (errr..Can we have a say on what poison we want to drink?? Thank You!) to this item… I wondered if I was watching a episode of Foul Ups, Bleeps and Blunders!!!??? LOL ..Wow!
And did the IT Manager really say “ the equipment …even thought not failing due to the good work of the av staff….”? Prior to this meeting, they stated the system has failed.

Hey if I can hear that online what is the problem in the room? ( “the sound box??” haha why not call it Boom Box!!??) Those meetings have agenda handouts for the public and I am certain they have hard copies at the Dias for all members. Perhaps their ipads have replaced the hard copies?? Reading the agenda, no one seemed to ask the important questions. Furthermore out of date documents were submitted and goes unnoticed by all. The conversation on this item left allot to be desired.

Black Electrical tape ( as mentioned by the director “does not indicate state of the art communications”) SHOULD NOT be a factor in a Full Audio Visual System Upgrade disguised as HD Broadcast with our tax payer monies of 600k either (Watch item 2.1 from 2014 . Link below ). At the end of the day WE ALL KNOW it will not just be 600k!!

Least convincing presentation award should go to Director Keagan . ” I don’t know why I’m messing up tonight… It’s Due to technologies issues tonight” Item 8.1 Boardroom HD broadcast system .. Come on down!!

Let’s staff blatantly present wrong info without any of the Directors taking them to task about . The agenda package has contradictions, do they not read this?

What is clear at the District is they don’t care about tax paying citizens voice, thank you ladies for speaking against fluoridation all these years ( can we have a say in what poison we drink ?? Thank you very much)

What is heard loud and clear with these meetings is , We don’t care about your voice and we will spend your monies how we see fit!
Thank you for your votes and your public funds!

2008-2009 SANTA CLARA COUNTY CIVIL GRAND JURY REPORT 1 SANTA CLARA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT AWASH IN CASH AS COUNTY AND CITIES DROWN IN RED INK PART 1 OF 4 REPORTS Issues Can the public trust the Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) to spend its money only when it is reasonable and necessary and to not extract unnecessary funding from taxpayers? Is more oversight, and control of the District needed? Summary 1. The District has been questioned on its spending for years and has made little to no effort to become cost effective. 2. Significant issues surround the District’s 15-year special parcel tax of 2000: • The public was mislead on the true purpose of the special tax. • Information regarding significant campaign contributions was withheld from the public until after the election that might have had a significant effect on the outcome of that election. • The special parcel tax added $32M in new property taxes (FY08), a 50% increase over existing property taxes, excluding benefit assessments and bond measures. • The tax is due to expire in 2016 and a replacement tax proposal is likely. The public is entitled to know whether the replacement is necessary. 3. The only review of the District’s budget and spending is the District’s own Board of Directors (BOD). The District proposed in 2005, and the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors (BOS) supported, legislation to sever any District accountability to the BOS as of January 1, 2007, leaving the District with no oversight. 4. The public requires assurance that what the District spends, and subsequently collects from the public is actually reasonable and necessary. 5. Although the proposed legislation from a local Assemblymember to strengthen law governing the District is greatly needed, it does not go far enough to adequately govern the District. 2 Four Reports This report is Part 1 of four reports on the District. Part 1 covers broad district-wide issues and Parts 2-4 are more specific as follows: Part 2 – Santa Clara Valley Water District: New Water Quality Laboratory Building—Overbuilt and Underused? Part 3 – Santa Clara Valley Water District: Alviso Slough Restoration Project – $22M Restores Boating but Threatens the Environment Part 4 – Santa Clara Valley Water District: Gold Street Education Center – $1.38M for what? Investigation Purpose and Methodology The Santa Clara County Civil Grand Jury (Grand Jury) received multiple citizen complaints regarding the District. Most complaints involve questionable spending by the District: Based on the size of the District’s budget, the importance of its mission and current economic conditions, the Grand Jury initiated an investigation which included: • Interviews with District management, staff, and its Board of Directors • Review of newspaper articles, library archives, web blogs, District meeting agendas. minutes, webcasts, District reports and records dating back to 1995 • District site inspections • Data requests to the District Facts were gathered from two audits completed in 2000 and 2007 and supplemented with information gathered by the Grand Jury: • The first audit (2000 Audit) was conducted from August 1999 through March 2000 by Malcolm Pirnie Inc., an environmental consulting firm. The audit was a performance audit of the Water Utility Enterprise (WUE), the unit/section of the District that sells wholesale water and charges well owners a “pump tax” for ground water replenishment. This audit came in response to a 1998 request from the District’s water retailers, which includes private companies such as San Jose Water Company, California Water Service Company, and municipalities such as Mountain View, Milpitas, and Santa Clara that sell water to its residents. 3 • The second audit (2007 Audit) was performed between 2005 and 2007 by Red Oak Consulting, a subsidiary of Malcolm Pirnie Inc., and was a district-wide performance audit, thus including the flood control operations as well as the WUE. This audit was proposed by the District in 2004 in the midst of heightened scrutiny of the District by the County Board of Supervisors (BOS), who was responsible for review of the District’s budget and water rates. Board Tenure The BOD is comprised of five elected directors, one from each of the Santa Clara County Supervisorial districts and two at-large directors appointed by the BOS. There are no term limits, and while a change in areas represented is currently a topic of proposed legislation, term limits are not. Legislation passed in 2006 (AB 2435) reduces the number of directors from seven to five in 2010. However, legislation is currently being proposed to return to seven directors (AB 466). The seven directors have served an average of 15 years. The concerns expressed in this report have all occurred during the tenure of the current directors. Director First year as Director First At-Large 1980 District 2 1986 District 1 1993 District 4 1995 Second At-Large 1996 District 3 2000 District 5 2007 Table 1: Director years of service Directors are not full time, but are paid a per meeting stipend which was $236.39 in FY08. The majority attend the maximum number (10) of payable meetings per month. The total expense for the seven Board members’ fees and expenses for FY08 was $238,837.96. Additionally, directors and their dependents received $66,620.29 in medical, dental, vision, CALPERS, and life insurance benefits. Overview of Issues In 2000 the California Little Hoover Commission called for: • Improved visibility and accountability of special districts • Simpler financial information reporting • Policies and plans for accumulated reserves • Specific plans for the future including anticipated expenditures, reserves, and user rates 4 • Per capita property tax contributions • Performance and quality of service indicators • Public notice of Board member benefits and compensation. It also called for annual presentation of financial information to the county board of supervisors and local city councils. It emphasized how the Local Agency Formation Commissions have not aggressively scrutinized special districts for efficiency and effectiveness. In 2004 the California State Auditor strengthened the recommendations of the Little Hoover Commission Report for Water Districts. It emphasized the need for accountability for very large cash reserves, which occur frequently in water districts due to imbalances from Proposition 13 allocations set in 1978, unjustified director fees and reimbursements, and violation of conflict-of-interest laws. In June 2004, the BOS, which had responsibility for budget review of the District at the time, ordered its Management Audit Division to conduct a review of the proposed FY05-06 operating and capital budget with a focus on reserves, the degree to which the District has completed capital projects financed by voter-approved measures, and funding levels of workers compensation and liability insurance. In the meantime, the District moved to become independent of the BOS. The BOS voted 3 to 2 to support the proposed state legislation. The eventual passage of AB2435 relieved Supervisors of the responsibility of reviewing the District budget and water rates. The Santa Clara County Civil Grand Jury has issued three major reports on the District: • 1988-1989 – “Santa Clara Valley Water District Inspection/Review;” A primary issue was the District’s inability to address a three-year drought due to a belated and underfunded media campaign. The goal was a 15% reduction in water use; the county actually achieved 3%, whereas a neighboring county was able to achieve over 25% reduction. It was a very different picture by 2000, as will be seen with the Clean Safe Creeks Special Tax (below). • 1999-2000 – “Investigation of the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s Implementation of its Equal Opportunity/Non-Discrimination Program Plan.” This was a positive follow-up report on corrective measures by the District in response to issues of racial bias and harassment in the workplace in the late 80s. As of today, the Board and the District continue to place strong emphasis on diversity. • 2005-2006 – “The Santa Clara Valley Water District–What’s Beneath the Surface?” addressed many issues that are still of concern and are reviewed once again in this report, particularly the need for increased oversight after looking into many issues cited by the above reports. 5 Pending legislation (AB466), sponsored by the Assemblymember from the 23rd District from San Jose, demonstrates many concerns about how the BOD operates. The Assemblymember proposed that the BOD submit to eleven conditions in the legislation in exchange for increasing the size of the Board from five to seven members. (See Appendix A). The proposed changes are normally left to local board policy rather than legislated. They address many issues discussed in the reports above: reserve policies, public notice of Board actions, policies regarding lobbyists, board interference with procurement procedures and staff reports, and board travel. The legislation also addresses issues reported by the press in 2007 and 2008: (1) the improper hiring of a sitting board member by the CEO, (2) increasing the CEO’s severance package after forcing his resignation; and (3) hiring a retired District employee to be the Interim CEO, thereby enabling her to be paid both retirement benefits and CEO salary. The remainder of this report addresses: – District revenue sources, including Clean Safe Creeks – Cost and spending controls – Employee and Salary Growth – Other issues revealed through the investigation. Sources of District Funds The District has two core functions: • Water Utility Enterprise (WUE), which operates as a business by importing water that it in turn sells wholesale to county retailers and that it uses to recharge ground water. • Watershed and Stream Stewardship Program that provides flood control and manages rivers and streams in the county. Table 2 summarizes budgeted District Revenue for FY08-09 Water Charges $145M 41% Property Taxes $74M 21% Special Parcel Tax – Clean Safe Creeks and Natural Flood Protection $32M 9% Benefit Assessments $19M 5% Interest $10M 3% Other $37M 10% Debt Proceeds $41M 11% Table 2: FY08-09 Total Revenue and Financing, $358M 6 A major part of the water charges comes from the sale of imported water to retailers. Also included in water charges is a ground water charge (pump tax) paid by most county well owners. Pump tax is paid by retailers who sell water from their own wells, such as Great Oaks Water Company and the cities of Morgan Hill and Gilroy. It is used to pay for importing water to recharge underground aquifers. Both charges are presented to the public for comment once a year, but are actually set and controlled by the District. They are not reviewed or regulated by any agency such as the Public Utilities Commission. There are some areas of the county that pay neither because they get their water from non-District sources – primarily Hetch Hetchy through the San Francisco Public Utilities. Property tax revenues are comprised of an allocated share of countywide 1% ad valorem (Proposition 13) property tax receipts; and voter-approved ad valorem levies, including the State Water Project contract obligations. The District has no written policy regarding the use of property taxes, and has full discretion on its use, “as long as it benefits property owners.” The bulk of property taxes received by the District goes into Watershed funding (flood control and stream maintenance.) Benefit assessment revenue consists of levies approved by voters for the county’s five watersheds in 1986 and 1990 to finance flood control capital improvements. As of July 1, 2000, the District benefit assessments are limited to paying qualified debt obligations and covenants only. After debt refinancing, the benefit assessments continue through FY30 (except for Uvas/Llagas which ends in 2013). Special Tax: Clean, Safe Creeks and Natural Flood Protection After Proposition 13 was passed, benefit assessments became an attractive vehicle for many agencies to raise funds for public services and improvements without a vote and with no maximum limits. With the passage of Proposition 218 in 1996 the District had to demonstrate benefit for each individual parcel being assessed before the assessment could be levied. It also required a majority vote of the electorate for new general taxes to be used for any governmental purpose. In addition, a two-thirds vote is required for special taxes to be used for specific purposes. The campaign for the November 2000 Measure B, “Clean Safe Creeks and Natural Flood Protection,” (CSC) demonstrated a new sophistication in the District’s ability to influence the public. CSC brought in $25M a year in special tax revenues (adjusted annually for inflation), totaling more than $463M over its 15-year life. Marketing techniques enabled the District to create optimal messaging, set a successful price point, target voters, and time the market (election). 7 As a result of these sophisticated techniques, CSC gained the required two-thirds votes out of 481,714 votes cast by the slim margin of 1066 votes. • The Sales Pitch: o The District learned from voter polling that “Our core issue – flooding – barely resonated with voters.” Whereas “Voters did connect with environment, clean water, healthy bay, trails.” Wording in the District informational material emphasized environmental causes rather than “flood control.” • Positioning the measure: o The ballot wording told voters that the measure was to “replace an expired program assessment with a special parcel tax…” [to] “protect homes, schools, businesses and roads from flooding and erosion; protect, enhance and restore healthy creek and bay ecosystems; provide additional open space trails and parks along creeks; and provide clean, safe water in our creeks and bays.” o The “expired program assessment” did not mean that the District was about to lose funding; It meant that the process for obtaining funding for new flood control projects had become prohibitively challenging due to Proposition 218, and the District sought another way to obtain public funds for flood control. (See Chart 1 below). • Pricing: o An acceptable “price point” was found – $39 per parcel. They polled the public on price points and found $39 would be what voters would accept. Program funding was NOT based on the cost of needed projects. • Timing: o The campaign was timed to get the most favorable turnout and win votes from the north and west portions of the county who were most sympathetic to the messaging. While the District’s marketing tactics may be legal, they do not engender trust and are not transparent. Clouding the picture further is the fact that the pro-Measure B campaign committee, “Committee for Clean Safe Creeks,” headed by a District employee who is now the District’s Government Relations Manager, was fined in 2004 by the Fair Political Practices Committee (FPPC) for non-disclosure of $190K in campaign contributions and other violations. “This was a significant matter for the voters of Santa Clara County,” said Steven Russo, chief of the FPPC’s Enforcement Division. “Due to the disclosure violations, the voters were deprived of important information regarding the conduct of the Measure B campaign and who supported it.” (Appendix B) The list of contributors not disclosed includes significant business leaders in the county. (See the FPPC website http://www.fppc.ca.gov/legal/creeksstip.pdf .) 8 CSC is planned as a “pay-as-you-go” program, with funds placed in reserves for construction planned in 2009-2015. Construction to date has only started on one of the seven flood control projects originally planned for construction. (Upper Guadalupe River). The CSC special tax has grown from $39 to $48.16 in 2008 for a single family residence. The drop in property taxes for FY04-05 and FY05-06 was due to California mandated tax shift for education (ERAF) of $25.5M each year. Chart 1: Property Tax, Assessments and CSC Special Tax Today’s status: • As of the CSC FY07-08 annual report, there is a widening gap between overall expenditures and projected revenues for the program, creating an increasing projected deficit of $65M by 2015. Contributing to the deficit was $29.3M in “capital support” costs due to increasing in-house program support while maintaining outsourced contracted services. • As of June 30, 2008, $213M has been collected via the CSC Special Tax. o Approximately $74M has been set aside for the nine promised flood control projects and another $23M reserved for other projects. $3M is unallocated. o Over $115M has been spent on scheduled program initiatives. • Benefit assessments are only slightly diminished. $0 $20,000,000 $40,000,000 $60,000,000 $80,000,000 $100,000,000 $120,000,000 $140,000,000 FY91 FY93 FY95 FY97 FY99 FY01 FY03 FY05 FY07 CSC Total Property Tax w/o CSC Benefit Assessment 9 Capital Improvement Program The District‘s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) publishes a five-year projection of the District’s expenses to support planned capital projects. For FY08-09, the estimated total capital expenditure to implement the 106 projects defined in the CIP is $1.964 billion. Of this amount, $462 million is expected to be funded by the District’s various partners, such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and $1.502 billion funded by the District. Most of the 106 projects receive little public scrutiny. Lack of Cost and Overhead Control Objective Over-spending has been an ongoing issue since at least 2000 and reflects the District’s lack of concern about effective use of taxpayers’ money. The 2000 Audit made several comments regarding cost management at the District: • “Cost of service is not generally the focus for Water Quality and Water Resource Planning … General lack of performance measures and limited documented accountability.” • “Some (performance measures) are tracked. Limited understanding of associated cost of services.” • “Unable to measure most cost components.” “Primary focus is on water quality. Minimal data available for time or cost.” “Senior management has very few meaningful cost performance measurement tools.” • “Rather than plan and implement cost-effective solutions to comply with regulatory changes, the district often incorporate(s) additional ‘unnecessary’ project components to satisfy public/stakeholders.” The 2007 Audit was similar but with a broader perspective: • “Based on Red Oak’s Administration and Financial Services audit activities, there is a lack of an overarching, quantitative cost-control or overhead minimization goal at the District, at both the Board/policy level and the CEO/staff level.” • “No systematic process of evaluating processes and improving efficiency, including consideration of outsourcing routine transaction processing, has been developed…Top management has no basis for evaluating the efficiency of basic transaction processing and financial accountability/fiduciary responsibility functions…Without a strategic plan for the financial function, there is no framework within which to establish such a system of evaluation.” • “A key challenge appears to be that initiatives…are often rolled out despite not being included in the applicable year’s budget.” 10 The Interim CEO and Board members could not identify any prior or current cost control initiatives beyond the Interim CEO’s reduction of the FY08-09 budget by approximately $11M (see below). Most board members seemed unconcerned with the spending practices of the District. They do not review proposals in detail and rarely cancel projects to control the budget. Staffing and Salaries Staffing Authorized staffing grew from 643 in 2001 to 903 in 2005, 40% increase in 4 years. Chart 2: Full Time Equivalent Employees FY93-94—FY07-08 From the 2007 Audit: “Such an increase would normally only be expected with a fundamental increase in the District’s service area, scope of services delivered, or acquisition of another agency.” “District staff indicated to Red Oak that the District’s need to implement the voter-approved Clean, Safe Creeks Initiative … was the primary reason for the organizational growth noted above. This point was also made by a member of the Audit Committee…This was not evident to Red Oak from document reviews, audit interviews, or the validation processes for this audit, the Watershed Operations audit, or other audits.” “If one [cost-control goal] were in place, it would likely be a driver for more rigorous examination of staffing levels.” 400 500 600 700 800 900 1000 1993-1994 1995-1996 1997-1998 1999-2000 2001-2002 2003-2004 2005-2006 2007-2008 FTE Authorized Total Filled 11 The District does not track the cost effectiveness of employees and cannot justify if hiring new employees is actually needed. There is no staffing strategy or plan and hiring was done ad hoc by individual units. The organization is heavy in middle and upper management, which raises salary levels. The 2000 Audit said ““Six layers exist between Executive Management and staff” and added “no current staff optimization plan. High use of long-term temps.” Note that for most years, the difference between authorized and actual staffing averaged 67 employees. The excess budgeted amount represented funding that was not available for other purposes. Salaries The 2007 Audit commented on the high level of District salaries: “Red Oak’s analysis of the most recent salary studies conducted at various times in 2005 by District HR staff indicate that, for all classifications analyzed, the District’s compensation levels significantly exceed levels found at other peer agencies. ….District pay is not directly linked to performance or achievement of operational, customer, or financial goals, and there are no bonus incentives. ….Based on information provided to Red Oak, the District does not have an explicit policy or any precedent indicating it ever adjusts compensation downwards in response to classification/compensation studies.” “… 1999 was the last time a comprehensive, organization-wide classification and compensation study was completed at the District. Following this study, the District adopted a guideline that employee compensation should be at 60% of the “labor market.” The District FY08-09 budget included $87,800,825 in salaries, $29,009,570 in benefits, for a total of $116,810,395. The District was able to provide the Grand Jury with a comparative salary survey as of July 1, 2008, that covered a range of 27 classified employee positions. Comparisons were against Santa Clara County, San Jose, Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District, and several local water and utility agencies. Based on the District’s target compensation rate of 60% of market, base salary was 74.2% of market, and total compensation exceeded market by 5.9%. There are additional concerns about staffing in the 2007 Audit: “The District has not placed a high priority on conducting sufficiently frequent agency-wide classification and compensation studies, on conducting such studies in line with industry standards, or on conducting such studies in line with its own stated policy to include private sector employers as compensation benchmark partners.” 12 “Because the benefits package is not considered along with salaries during the benchmarking process for District employee compensation and an up-todate comprehensive assessment across all job categories is lacking, the District has difficulty substantiating its claim that District employee salaries are comparable to industry peers. Available current information, based on unit-specific or bargaining-unit specific recent studies, suggest, in fact, that District compensation levels significantly exceed those of its peers.” Impact on Water Rates and other Costs Given the District’s lax approach to cost control, it is not surprising that water rates are impacted. From the 2000 Audit: “..the cost of service information the District uses to develop rates is likely outdated, especially in the case of the north and south County customers. According to one District staffer, the cost of service derivation is ‘logical, yet not supportable’… Simply, it appears the District’s cost of service calculations may no longer be valid especially with respect to servicing north vs. south County customers. Subsequently, the revenues recovered from one or more of the District’s customer classes may be subsidizing those from other classes.” The 2007 Audit notes the existence of “single cost-related metric” (measures that enable costs to be tracked) regarding the cost of treating water, and points out the need for looking more broadly at its processes. It further states: “The District has not placed a priority on developing cost-related metrics, ‘operationalizing’ its frequently stated objectives regarding providing ‘costeffective’ services to the customers of its WUE, or tracking actual activities and initial scopes and expenditures against budgeted amounts…For most activities, the WUE and the District cannot readily demonstrate its costeffectiveness to its internal or external stakeholders, or identify its most promising areas for cost management.” As discussed in Part 2 of this report, the 2000 Audit questioned the need for a new laboratory. “The District Board is considering a project to build a new stand-alone, 15,000 square foot laboratory. However, it does not appear that the Board has established a clear mission for the laboratory…It may be possible to, achieve significant efficiencies by ‘partnering’ or contracting with one or more [local] laboratories.…Given the high capital cost of laboratory facilities, the District Board should establish a clear laboratory mission …” The 18,400 square feet building has been completed at a cost of over $21M. 13 Ground Water Management “Managing groundwater is the reason the District was formed and it remains the District’s most important mission.” (SCVWD, Protection and Augmentation of Water Supplies, page 3, March 25, 2008.) Forty-five percent of the potable water used in Santa Clara County is from groundwater. The 2007 Audit said, “There is a perception by District customers that the South County (Llagas) Groundwater Basin is not thoroughly understood. Future development of the IWRP [Integrated Water Resources Plan] should consider the need for, and cost of, groundwater recharge operations.” No subsidence thresholds have been established for the Coyote or Llagas Sub-basins, as there has been no analysis of the occurrence of subsidence in South County. (“SCVWD Groundwater Conditions 2001”, Page 29). “The District appears to have approached groundwater basin management as primarily an engineering task of placing water into the ground. We urge the groundwater basin management include a multi-disciplinary effort involving the coordinated analysis of the District’s hydrogeologists, engineering geologist, hydrologist, civil engineers, chemists, microbiologists, and others.” (2000 Audit). Interim CEO – A Step in the Right Direction The Interim CEO who served roughly through calendar year 2008 has made a significant effort to address some of the concerns regarding costs and performance, reported by the 2007 Audit. The result was a reduction of $11M in the FY08-09 budget due in part to $4.9M savings from reduction of 28 full-time equivalent positions, overtime, travel, and consultant services. The CEO also surprised staff by requiring a line-by-line review with managers of their proposed budgets – something that had not occurred in the memory of those interviewed. They had expected overtime to be easily approved with “business as usual,” but proposed overtime budgets were cut by the CEO as much as 50%, based on FY07-08 overtime. While it is not yet clear what actual spending for FY08-09 will be since the interim CEO’s departure, it is a step in the right direction. Given the pervasive nature of the lax attitude towards any kind of fiscal control, it will take much more time and leadership from the BOD to make the needed impact on capital and operational spending. While the Directors interviewed seem to approve the interim CEO’s actions, the majority failed to convince the Grand Jury that cost savings and financial reform is a priority. The BOD appears politically divided and entrenched in defending decisions made years ago. Interviewees, Board and staff, could not describe any significant District-wide cost reduction or control initiatives or major concerns about spending except for those actions by the interim CEO. The departing CFO in 2008 pointed out that improving speed of execution would improve cost efficiency. However, interviewees overall 14 seemed unconcerned with the speed with which the District moves. In fact, it took a year to hire the new Board-directed auditor, almost a year to replace the CFO, and over a year to replace the CEO. Further, the BOD delayed addressing the 2007 Audit recommendations for almost a year rather than accelerating needed reforms. Conclusion There have been reports since 2000, including two comprehensive audits, a budget review, state-wide reports on water districts, and proposed legislation, as well as two grand jury investigations, which all point out the spending and ethics abuses by the District over many years. All attribute these issues to a lack of oversight, transparency, and accountability. Given the critical mission of the District, the large sums of money involved, and the financial condition of the national, state, and local economies, it is imperative that these problems be solved. Findings and Recommendations Findings have been reviewed with the subject agency. Finding 1a While many operational activities, such as water quality and environmental impact reviews, are highly regulated by government agencies, the Board of Directors is solely responsible for District financial management, including capital programs, water rates and pump taxes. Finding 1b The County Board of Supervisors gave only a perfunctory review of the District budget until they ordered a budget review in 2005. They subsequently relinquished any oversight of the District. Finding 1c The Board of Directors has hired an auditor (Board Auditor) on a two-year trial basis. It has yet to be determined what the goals of the auditor will be. Recommendation 1a Create an independent Public Review Committee (PRC), appointed by an independent body to review and report annually to the public on any and all issues it feels necessary. Issues should be accepted from any citizen, public agency or District employee. The PRC needs to have access to District staff and documents, along with the District’s administrative support. The Board should provide written responses to the committee as requested. 15 Recommendation 1b No recommendation. Recommendation 1c The PRC should direct the Board Auditor as to the scope of audits. Finding 2 The Board of Directors has complete discretion, unfettered by consistent policy, guidelines, or priorities, on spending 1% ad valorem property taxes and reimbursements for flood control projects from the California Department of Water Resources Flood Subvention Program (Subventions). Recommendation 2a The Board of Directors should articulate a policy on how property taxes and Subventions will be spent. Recommendation 2b The PRC should evaluate use of the District’s 1% ad valorem taxes for the Clean Safe Creeks Program. Finding 3 The District does not justify spending and staffing to the public and does not have a comprehensive long-term Master Plan that enables the public to understand use of funds, planned services, and service charges. Recommendation 3 At least 90 days before the 2010 elections, the District should publish a comprehensive 15-year Master Plan including strategies, associated project plans, anticipated funding and costs, services, staffing, and revenue generation. It should be updated every five years. Any future proposal for the follow-on to the Clean Safe Creeks Program, should be based on the flood control portions of the Master Plan. 16 Finding 4a While the legislation establishing the District requires an annual report on “the protection and augmentation of water supplies,” none is required for watershed and flood control. Finding 4b The District provides the Water Utility Enterprise Report, now called the Report on the Protection and Augmentation of Water Supplies. It also publishes a detailed business plan and other reports from the Water Utility portion of the District. Recommendation 4a The District should publish similar annual reports for all District divisions, particularly for flood control and watersheds. The reports should include performance metrics and quality of service indicators. Recommendation 4b The Board of Directors should publish a detailed report annually on their strategies, plans, priorities, and issues as well as Board member compensation, benefits, travel, and other expenditures. The District should present financing and flood control information annually to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and city councils in the County. Finding 5 The District uniformly states that protection of life and property is the number one priority. However, some projects have waited years. Example: The Upper Llagas Creek Flood Protection project, has waited 40 years and is still not completed. Recommendation 5 The District needs to evaluate root causes of delays of essential projects and their impact on public safety. It should establish a “fast-track” process to complete critical projects, including specific performance goals and continuing assessments to improve speed of execution. Finding 6 The District reduced the FY08-09 budget by $11M by reducing staff, overtime, consulting and travel expenses. 17 Recommendation 6 The District should continue to look into other avenues where it can reduce excess spending. The costs of outsourcing rather than in house staffing should be reviewed. Finding 7 Prior to FY07-08 the District has not reviewed budgets in detail with managers. Recommendation 7 The Board of Directors should create a process and policy to ensure that the budget is reviewed and tracked regularly, at least quarterly, to monitor income and expense. The Board of Directors should re-evaluate all over-budget or delayed projects, against the original justification, to ensure that they remain cost effective. Finding 8 The Board of Directors does not make cost savings and financial reform a priority. Recommendation 8a The Board of Directors should enlist the help of outside consultants to implement a plan for cost-effective operation of the district. Recommendation 8b Board of Directors should ensure that future CEOs continue top-down cost control and support greater efficiency at lower levels in the organization. It should ensure actual expenses do not exceed budgeted expenses The next CEO should bring a mindset of reform and restructuring for accountability to the public Finding 9 The Assemblymember from District 23 has negotiated legislation (AB466) with the District to implement 11 policy recommendations. {See Appendix A). AB 466 does not include term limits. Recommendation 9 If AB466 is not passed, the Board should include its policies in Board policy. 18 Finding 10 The average tenure on the Board of Directors is 15 years, with the longest Director having served 29 years. Recommendation 10 Term limits should be included in AB 466 or implemented by the Board of Directors. 19 APPENDIX A Policies Proposed By Assembly member Coto (AB 466) From Board of Directors Meeting February 10, 2009 1. Directors shall be exempt from seeking employment with the District for one year following the completion of their service. 2. Staff memos are to be made available to the public for a minimum of 10 days prior to being heard by the Board of Directors. 3. The District shall annually provide a public hearing on its reserves, which details the rationale for its reserves and provides an overview of its reserve management policy. 4. A written summary of closed session disclosures shall be made available when the minutes from the corresponding session are approved 5. Lobbyists shall be required to register with the District and the California Secretary of State and to report on their activities and communications. 6. Directors shall be required to disclose all contacts with lobbyists prior to voting. 7. Directors shall refrain from any involvement or interference with the bidding or RFP process. 8. Directors shall not revise draft staff reports without full disclosure. 9. All travel by individual directors shall be approved by the entire board of directors in an open session. 10. The renegotiation of an employment contract of any Board appointed executive or officer will be ineligible for consideration after a voluntary separation has been requested or announced. 11. In the case of voluntary separation of employment by any Board appointed executive or officer of the district, the executive or officer will be ineligible to receive a severance package. 20 APPENDIX B News Release Fair Political Practices Commission August 17, 2004 NEWS RELEASE For Immediate Release: Contact: Sigrid Bathen August 17 , 2004 (916) 322-7761 Commission, Creeks Committee agree to $24,000 civil settlement Failed to file reports disclosing $190,000 in contributions The Fair Political Practices Commission has reached a $24,000 civil settlement with the Committee for Clean Safe Creeks, and its treasurers, Susan A. Pino and Rick L. Callender, regarding campaign disclosure violations in connection with their successful effort to win passage of Measure B, the “Clean, Safe Creeks and Flood Protection Plan,” in the Nov. 7, 2000, Santa Clara County general election. The FPPC alleged in its suit that before the election, the Creeks committee failed to timely file a preelection campaign report disclosing $170,995 in contributions and $65,668 in expenditures and failed to file five late contribution reports disclosing an additional $20,000 in contributions. In addition, when the committee later filed the pre-election report, well after the election, it did not disclose required information about how $49,795 in contributions was spent. The committee also was not properly described in its campaign filings as a committee that was primarily formed to win passage of Measure B. The civil lawsuit was filed by the FPPC in Santa Clara County Superior Court on Aug. 4, 2004. The final judgment, based on a stipulation signed by the FPPC, Pino, and Callender, was approved Aug. 13 by Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Socrates P. Manoukian. Copies of the complaint, stipulation and judgment are available on the FPPC Web site at http://www.fppc.ca.gov. “This was a significant matter for the voters of Santa Clara County,” said Steven Russo, chief of the FPPC’s Enforcement Division. “Due to the disclosure violations, the voters were deprived of important information regarding the conduct of the Measure B campaign and who supported it.” He noted that the measure passed by a very slim margin, receiving only 66.9% of the votes cast, with 66.6% needed for passage. According to documents filed in the case, the Creeks committee received 29 contributions totaling $170,995, approximately two-thirds of the total contributions received by the committee during the second pre-election reporting period before the November 2000 election. They also made $65,668 in expenditures. They failed to report this activity on their pre-election campaign statement by Oct. 26, 2000, as required by law. 21 APPENDIX B – continued During the next 16 days immediately preceeding the election, the Creeks committee then received five additional contributions of $1,000 or more totaling $20,000. Any contributions received within the last 16 days prior to an election are required to be reported as “late contributions” within 24 hours. The Creeks committee failed to satisfy that reporting obligation. After the November election, on Dec. 26, 2000, the committee belatedly filed the preelection campaign statement that had been due on Oct. 26. However, the committee failed to disclose required information about how $49,795 had been spent by the committee. Finally, in the committee’s first campaign filing — a statement of organization filed on July 25, 2000 — the committee failed to disclose its purpose as a committee primarily formed to support the passage of Measure B, as required by law. The committee was incorrectly described as a general purpose committee whose purpose was to support more than just the one ballot measure. This failure to correctly describe the true nature of the committee was then reflected in all of the committee’s subsequent campaign filings. This case was handled as a civil lawsuit, rather than as an administrative action, and the terms of the settlement were brought before the members of the commission for approval during an earlier closedsession discussion of pending litigation. Because of the large amount of unreported contributions, particularly in the second pre-election statement, the case was handled as a civil action to allow for the possibility of a higher fine. An administrative action is the FPPC’s more common method of prosecuting enforcement matters. For the 2000 election, the maximum possible administrative penalty was $2,000 per violation (since raised to $5,000 with the passage of Proposition 34). Senior Commission Counsel Deanne Canar and Investigator III Daniel Schek handled the case for the FPPC. ### 22 This report was PASSED and ADOPTED with a concurrence of at least 12 grand jurors on this 9th day of April, 2009.

Dear World Watcher,

Have you ever spent a few minutes watching the plane crash videos of 9/11/01? If not, you should. The videos are fake. Here are a few of the most obvious ones:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXcQWaTRPbQ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cvWwIxMbmE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fL_x9NsxJlg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSDfbm8OhCg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6bk4dMjl4g

That day I recorded on the vcr about 8 hours of the live news coverage, beginning just before the first Twin Tower blew up. Anyone can study the video and see that many of the witnesses were bad actors, the plane crashes are fake, and explosives (not planes) blew up the buildings. This is similar to Col. L. Fletcher Prouty’s description in chapter 3 of his 1992 book JFK. He explains how tens of thousands of people worldwide train for these types of operations on a daily basis.

This guy here, dressed up as a construction worker, is a real giveaway:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAzzHjLYjuA

Of the 1.6 million people in Manhattan that day, the A-number-one witness to the event just happens to drive by a Fox News reporter and tell what he saw.

Here is another obvious actor, this one at the Pentagon:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PTRsuRao7A

And this guy is just plane comical:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5y8PtfKA14

In the video September Clues they highlight some of the actors of that day:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BvmdWAIs14

This person appears to miss his cue when upstaged by a passerby Fox News wasn’t expecting. The actor (carrying a large bag) turns around and walks back towards the Trade Center, then comes back for his lengthy interview (interview not included here):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0eC3uns3pA

At the end of the above video CNN shows us a close-up view of the North Tower (building to the right) before it was blown up. Much of the plane’s “entrance hole” is unbroken. Also some of the beams at the upper right are jutting outward, not inward. Fake pictures on the internet and in television documentaries show a larger and more believable hole in the building. They even added some people standing in the hole!

For a very good view of what the North Tower really looked like before it was blown up go to http://wtc.vjs.organd click on “Tower 2 fireball”. Also, at the tail end of that video clip you can see a helicopter or plane in the background. In none of the fake plane crash videos do we see a helicopter or plane there.

The official number of passengers on board the 3 planes that allegedly crashed is only a fraction of the number of passengers normally on such flights. In fact, flight 93 that supposedly crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania had only 37 passengers. Just one of the many indications this was fake.

After 5pm many of the news stations began airing video clips of the 47-story WTC #7 collapsing. Nobody bothers to mention that this was obviously a controlled demolition; no apparent damage to the building as it falls like a house of cards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv7BImVvEyk

At 11:07am (eastern time) CNN’s Aaron Brown talks on the telephone with CNN’s Alan Dodds Frank who is in lower Manhattan. Frank apparently reports that a third building collapsed at 10:45. He said it happened 15 minutes after the collapse of the North Tower (10:28) and a firefighter estimated 50 stories fell. When viewing this clip notice that Brown doesn’t ask which building fell; why it fell; or, were there people in or around the building. When Frank is done with his report Brown casually moves on and changes the subject! Shortly after this conversation the timeclock underneath the CNN logo disappears and is never displayed again.

(One possible explanation for this mix-up is that the 47-story WTC #7 was scheduled to be blown up around the same time as the Twin Towers, but for some reason they postponed it to later in the day. Poor Mr. Frank wasn’t informed of this last minute change of plan and he went on to read his well-rehearsed script at the wrong time.)

Fox News reporter Jeff Goldblatt interviews a photographer, live, at Shanksville. The photographer says all he could see was a 10ft. x 15-20ft. ditch, smoke, and some broken trees. “Nothing that you could distinguish that a plane had crashed there.” The video of the crash site clearly shows that no plane crashed there.

Early footage of the Pentagon before the wall and roof collapsed. Firemen hose down the fire that can be seen inside the building through the windows. One guy with a broom is sweeping. (Where is the plane?)

KTVU Channel 2 (local Oakland, Calif. station) correspondent Mike Majchrowitz reports live from the Pentagon. He says that a little after 10am the smoke seemed to be going down and then there was a set of explosions and it turned black again. He also says he hasn’t yet seen an eyewitness to the crash.

C-span interviews a Pentagon employee in her car. She says, “The building shook. I was in the building and that last bomb threat [sic] they just had, it shook the building. I left.”

CNN’s Jamie McIntyre reports live from the Pentagon. He says there’s no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon; no large sections of wing, tail, or fuselage visible.

The initial report of hijackers with knives and box-cutters on Flight 77 allegedly came from Barbara Olson using a phone on the plane. She just happened to be married to Solicitor General Ted Olson who argued President Bush’s election case before the Florida State Supreme Court in 2000. What a small world.

How did it happen that an entire country could be tricked into believing something so dumb that a 10-year-old kid can figure it out? William Shirer wrote about this sort of thing in “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.” He described what it was like being in Nazi Germany, and no matter how silly or retarded the Nazi news propaganda was, the gullible German public swallowed it up, hook, line, and sinker.

Shirer wrote:

    I myself was to experience how easily one is taken in by a lying and censored press and radio in a totalitarian state. Though unlike most Germans I had daily access to foreign newspapers, especially those of London, Paris and Zurich, which arrived the day after publication, and though I listened regularly to the BBC and other foreign broadcasts, my job necessitated the spending of many hours a day in combing the German press, checking the German radio, conferring with Nazi officials and going to party meetings. It was surprising and sometimes consternating to find that notwithstanding the opportunities I had to learn the facts and despite one’s inherent distrust of what one learned from Nazi sources, a steady diet over the years of falsifications and distortions made a certain impression on one’s mind and often misled it. No one who has not lived for years in a totalitarian land can possibly conceive how difficult it is to escape the dread consequences of a regime’s calculated and incessant propaganda. Often in a German home or office or sometimes in a casual conversation with a stranger in a restaurant, a beer hall, a cafe, I would meet with the most outlandish assertions from seemingly educated and intelligent persons. It was obvious that they were parroting some piece of nonsense they had heard on the radio or read in the newspapers. Sometimes one was tempted to say as much, but on such occasions one was met with such a stare of incredulity, such a shock of silence, as if one had blasphemed the Almighty, that one realized how useless it was even to try to make contact with a mind which had become warped and for whom the facts of life had become what Hitler and Goebbels, with their cynical disregard for truth, said they were.

For many years Mae Brussell exposed just how and why the traditional domestic U.S. eastern establishment powers, such as the Rockefellers and Kennedys, are being wiped out by the more sadistic, foreign interests infiltrating the United States (essentially the same people we were fighting during WWII). And on September 11, 2001 the World Trade Center was blown up littered with jokes and comedy acts for anyone who bothers to look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXcQWaTRPbQ

For those interested in understanding what led up to this I would recommend the following books:

If you have trouble finding the books try http://www.addall.com or http://www.ebay.com. (Also on ebay people occasionally sell 9/11/01 television coverage they recorded that day.)

Water District CEO Rushes Big-Dollar Consulting Contract, Fails to Disclose Conflicts of Interest

As California prepares, in its fourth dry year, for all manner of apocalyptic scenarios—from rapidly depleted drinking water sources to Dust Bowl-era dirt farms—the thought of Silicon Valley devolving into a waterless sinkhole is “what I lose sleep over at night,” the region’s chief water official says.

As CEO of the Santa Clara Valley Water District, which provides flood protection and water to 1.8 million people in Silicon Valley’s largest county, Beau Goldie is especially concerned with subsidence—the depletion of groundwater basins that could destabilize the region’s supply and, down the road, puncture the landscape with street-swallowing pits. These concerns, he says, prompted him to take emergency action this spring and seek approval on an exclusive contract with RMC, a company that is expected to draw up plans for a recycling plant to replenish the valley’s fragile groundwater.

But sources within the water district say Goldie has routinely avoided disclosing potential conflicts of interest regarding RMC, the beneficiary of more than $18 million from the water district in the last decade.

The latest agreement with the company, expected to come in at more than $4 million, has for the most part escaped public scrutiny. In April, the seven-member elected Board of Directors, on a 5-2 vote, gave Goldie the green light to negotiate a single-source contract, which means competitive vendors were not even in the running. Goldie said a surprisingly dry winter gave rise to the fast track contracting process.

“Just about every month counts here,” Goldie told San Jose Inside. “We’re in a race.”

What Goldie never disclosed to the board is the cozy relationship the water district has shared with RMC for a number of years.

Melanie Richardson, one of Goldie’s top ranking deputies and the person responsible for overseeing watershed contracts for the district, is married to one of RMC’s principal owners, Tom Richardson. In a statement of economic interest form filed for 2010,Melanie Richardson noted that she held stock in the company worth between $100,000 and $1 million.

Goldie also neglected to inform board members that last year Monterey County Water Agency board member Steve Collins pleaded no contest to public corruption charges, including felony grand theft, related to payments from RMC and an artichoke grower. Collins worked as a paid consultant for the company and also voted on its contracts as an elected official. Collins also illegally billed clients $160,000 for meetings that he didn’t attend, or which were part of his duties as a public official, prosecutors said.

Gary Kremen, chair of the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) and one of only two board members to vote against RMC’s contract, called the single-source negotiations with RMC “bad planning on an epic proportion.”

“It’s not like a dam is breaking and we need to immediately plug a hole,” Kremen said. “A couple months aren’t going to kill us. It’s going to take up to 10 years to get drops of water from a recycling plant into the groundwater.

“It’s starting out on the absolute wrong foot. We’ve known about this purified water project for years. We’ve had way more time to make disclosures about RMC’s past behavior, and those disclosures were never made.”

Goldie defended RMC’s selection, and the decision to exclude details about Collins and the Richardsons when going to the board for approval. He admitted that the SCVWD conducted no additional research into RMC’s role in Collins’ indictment. “It would just slow down processes tremendously, and we wouldn’t be able to provide any more assurances,” Goldie said.

In the case of Melanie Richardson’s potential conflict of interest, Goldie said that a “firewall” was put in place years ago to keep her from coming into contact with actions related to her husband’s company.

“Melanie is in the flood protection side of the house, so she has no involvement in this whatsoever,” Goldie said.

But sources at the water district tell San Jose Inside this hasn’t always been the case. In fact, internal documents show that Richardson has managed people who handle RMC contracts, including their performance reviews. The “firewall” appears to rely on her walking out of the room when RMC is discussed.

“It doesn’t pass the smell test,” said a source with decades of experience overseeing contracts between public agencies and consultants.

Sources confirmed that the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office looked into the matter two years ago, but the investigation was called off due to an impending statute of limitations for any potential charges.

Goldie insisted in a May interview with San Jose Inside that an in-house ethics expert, LeeAnn Pelham, had strengthened SCVWD controls to prevent any impropriety. Pelham subsequently resigned her post.

RMC’s single-source contract was part of a package of non-competitive deals Goldie submitted at an April 28 board meeting. He received pushback not only from Kremen and fellow director Barbara Keegan, but also Ravi Subramanian, the district’s head of procurement.

“I just said the language needs to be stronger to justify why they should be single-source contracts,” Subramanian told San Jose Inside in a phone interview monitored by district communications staff.

The RMC deal earmarks several million dollars worth of preliminary planning for an indirect potable recycling plant, but Goldie said that the overall project could end up costing $800 million. Sources say that estimate is optimistic, as the water district has a history of going over budget.

District board member Keegan, a trained engineer who along with Kremen voted against Goldie’s single-source contract proposals, noted that companies doing preliminary planning often receive ensuing contracts. Engineers rarely trust work they have not verified themselves.

“Whoever does the preliminary engineering work obviously is going to have more experience with the project and that would help in the future for a final design contract,” Keegan said. “If another firm were chosen for the design, they would have to redo significant portions of the preliminary engineering to verify the accuracy of the other firm’s work product.”

Goldie said that RMC has been notified it is unlikely to receive future contracts on the project, making the decision to go with the company from the start all the more perplexing.

“That means, potentially, the $5 million being spent on this preliminary contract would be wasted if another firm were chosen to finish off the project,” Keegan said.

Beyond the proposed RMC contract, sources say the firm has improperly billed the district in the past. Sources also told San Jose Inside that a recent audit found that district staff has routinely moved money between projects, sometimes to the benefit of RMC, and these transfers of funds are tucked into massive reports that often go undetected by the part-time board members.

“By moving funds directly from project to project, it avoids scrutiny from the public and the Board,” Keegan said.

Board chair Kremen said he plans to call on Goldie to suspend negotiations with RMC until a more thorough vetting of their past dealings with the district can be conducted.

  1. RMC had the 3 year contract for the SBWR Master Plan (Google it!). This contract was just completed in April and was co-managed by the City of San Jose and the Water District. RMC knows the issues with recycled water in the valley, I do not see what the problem is here. Everyone at the top levels of government has their “hands in the kitty”, how else did they get elected or promoted? Why is this such a surprise what the Water District did?

    I would be interested to hear what Mr. Wall has to say about this nefariousness.

  2. Beau Goldie and John Gundry–cut from the same cloth. Who has the authority to terminate each of these two, and why haven’t they exercised that authority? Our smithy may be resigned to the inevitability of corruption at the top, but I am not.

  3. @Josh_Koehn. look into what they are doing to the board room, wasting millions and no one gets fired for breaking it so they can waste more money, have all the documentation.@pgoeltz this is district wide waste they even paid for sig hearing aid over 5k, when hes a rich farmer,, as to the problem, they funnel money how and where they want this is just tip of waste there.

  4. Its your taX money they don’t care ask to see all the prs from all departments you will see waste and same style, hiring friends, no bid, IT ADHOC, COMMITTEE IS A JOKE TO GET A NEW 3 MILLION BOARDROOM

  5. The Santa Clara County D.A. is at least partly right. That Form 700 for 2010, filed on 3/18/2011, is outside the four-year statute of limitations in California Gov Code subsection 91011(b). You’ve checked her filings for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, right?

    There might’ve been a violation of 91005(b), which allows treble damages. Section 91009 says a plaintiff is entitled to half of the penalty.

  6. RMC are getting sole source contracts now from Milpitas and the District. And charges both exorbitant rates under the false pretense of being cheaper and more efficient. I think not. They are obviously conflicted and the District needs a trusted consultant at their side instead of them.

    • I retired from the district after seeing time and time again upper management playing favorites and protecting each other. This is just another example of that. Mr.Goldie and and Ms.Richardson both long term district employees, have no respect for the public. Does anyone really believe that Ms. Richardson “being on the other side of the house” makes the whole issue transparent?
      The solution is to replace Mr. Goldie with an outside professional without these long time personal relationships. Of course no one should be surprised to see Mr. Goldie land on his feet as a highly paid RMC employee.

  7. What? Say it isn’t so, a politician, a CEO, a public official, with a conflict of interest? I’m appalled and saddened. Let me say again, deeply saddened, OH!! but wait, this is America, never mind.

  8. For more information on the water board please have a look at the top of the MaeBrussell(dot)com homepage. Mr. Goldie is a choirboy when compared to the actual board members.

Paul:

Thanks for the email. I spoke with several people in the IT unit, and it looks like they might have inadvertently thrown some of your things away. That was the basis of the $1,300 offer. In my discussions, it became clear to me that nothing was intentional, and that they were just trying to clear and clean. As for the other issues, I can’t find any evidence of your manager breaching any confidentiality or intentionally telling someone about your medical condition.

The $1,300 offer still stands. If you would like to accept the offer, please let me know.

So my personal items, the amount is fair, however what about the said manager telling false, misleading and my medical information to other scvwd workers?

I think or am very sure if you ask IT employee’s and other departments i worked for you will find the said manager guilty of the issue i sent in. And this is also a larger issue with middle managers per audit 2012, and other lawsuits.

Thanks for the email.  I spoke with several people in the IT unit, and it looks like they might have inadvertently thrown some of your things away.  That was the basis of the $1,300 offer.  In my discussions, it became clear to me that nothing was intentional, and that they were just trying to clear and clean.  As for the other issues, I can’t find any evidence of your manager breaching any confidentiality or intentionally telling someone about your medical condition.

The $1,300 offer still stands.  If you would like to accept the offer, please let me know.

David you already said you would pay for items thrown away and Anna was looking into the info i provided about GK and who to interview, again from the board meeting ray provided the board with lots of incriminating evidence, and you asked for names of who to interview which i provided,  so again you already told me you would pay for what was tossed out of my things, and interview the techs, which has not happened.  I will be happy to come and present even more evidence before the board, and newspapers if scvwd wishes, AND PURSUE IN COURT. PRETTY SURE THE OFFER I MADE FOR gk MISCONDUCT WAS VERY FAIR.  AGAIN YOU ASKED I PROVIDE MORE NAMES AND EVIDENCE I DID AND THIS EVIDENCE OR PART WAS PRESENTED AT THE BOARD MEETING ALSO.  SO  WE DID AGREE ON A AMOUNT FOR MY PERSONAL ITEMS.  AND WILLING TO TALK ABOUT THE OTHER ISSUE…. BUT THE OFFER IS NOT  TO JUST DO NOTHING.  IT SEEMS I KEEP HAVING TO ASK WHATS GOING ON, WHEN I FEEL NOTHING IS.

So my personal items, the amount is fair, however what about the said manager telling false, misleading and my medical information to other scvwd workers?

I think or am very sure if you ask IT employee’s and other departments i worked for you will find the said manager guilty of the issue i sent in.  And this is also a larger issue with middle managers per audit 2012, and other lawsuits.

​I will give my answer upon hearing about that also??

thank you
