LANGSTON INFORMS RATEPAYERS THE DIRECTORS ARE CHANGING APPROVED LMUD MINUTES.
This will keep Cady and Board Members out of jail
Wayne Langston , a non-ratepayer, was illegally appointed to fill a vacancy on the LMUD Board in March of 2001. Langston attended the Board meeting on April 25, 2001 when the LMUD Board of Directors failed to vote on a motion to approve the Arrrowrock Memorandum of Understanding with the Boise Project Board of Controls which would have authorized spending money on worthless and repetitive studies.
The LMUD Board at a Special Meeting , on May 8, 2003, discussed and are going to move forward on changing the approved minutes of their meeting on April 25, 2001 to reflect approval of the expenditure of funds.
IS THIS THEIR FEEBLE ATTEMPT TO COVER-UP AND TO CHANGE THE ACTUAL PUBLIC RECORD OF THEIR ILLEGAL EXPENDITURE OF FUNDS ?
WHERE HAS LMUD'S LEGAL COUNSEL BEEN ALL THRU THIS DISGUSTING DEBACLE?
ANSWER: RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT, ORCHESTRATING ALL OF THE MOVES.
Mr. Cady was in attendance during the April 25, 2001 LMUD meeting and sits as LMUD'S Parliamentarian and legal counsel. The April 25, 2001 minutes were approved at the following LMUD meeting with no corrections by the Board or legal counsel.
If the Board is foolish enough to think that they can change or tamper with the approved minutes of this public utility to avoid prosecution....they are sadly mistaken if they think the public will tolerate this obvious attempt to cover-up what they have done.
This LMUD Board, Sargent, Cardenas, Langston, Vazquez and Nagel and Frank Cady have exposed our utility district to litigation from the Boise Project Board of Control, Attorney General of Idaho and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and possibly.
This Board will have to change two years of LMUD minutes to exonerate themselves.
LMUD , JUNE 5, 2003 MEETING
They changed two year old minutes to protect Mr. Cady and Mr. Langston.
The Recalled LMUD Board failed to pass a motion to approve the Arrowrock Memorandum of Understanding which obligated the ratepayers to more than $32.5 million in debt. Frank Cady did not advise this Recalled Board that this MOU needed a "Resolution" and not just a motion at a meeting. This maybe the reason CADY never corrected their action at the April 25, 2001 meeting or at the May 9, 2001 meeting when the minutes were approved.
On April 25, 2001, Mr. Cady requested that the LMUD Board (recalled in March/2002) add an agenda item that would allow the General Manager to authorize the "Memorandum of Understanding". This was approved by the board members and "10 d" was added to the agenda.
Mr. Templeton then stepped down as chairperson when the board was to address agenda item "10 d". Mr. Cady, Mr. Templeton and Mr. Wood then took a five minute recess. This had been a very carefully orchestrated. and planned action. Mr. Wood assumed the chair for this agenda item.
Mr. Templeton made a motion and Mr. Wood seconded the motion to allow the LMUD general manager to sign the Arrowrock MOU. The chair can entertain a motion but cannot make or second a motion.
This motion died from an invalid, improper procedure as well as the fact that no vote was taken.
Mr. Cady acts as LMUD's parliamentarian. The LMUD Board had written a check to the Boise Project Board of Control prior to any agreement being executed by both parties. Is it Mr. Cady's intent to instruct the LMUD Board to systematically alter two 1/2 years of LMUD minutes. That's what it would take.
The Arrowrock MOU was titled "Power Purchase-Sales Agreement", (Deception #1) yet the document did not contain a power purchase agreement. The MOU contained extensive and specific obligations to construct and maintain a hydroelectric facility at Arrowrock Dam and LMUD could only purchase "surplus energy" (which there would be none, according to previous studies) Basically, the recalled Board instructed Don Battles to sign a document that he had no authority to sign. Mr. Cady did not correct this action because he had committed himself to the Boise Project Board of Control's needs instead of LMUD. Was there additional compensation in it for Cady? Was there additional compensation in it for Battles, the Board.....?
KWH acquired the Arrowrock MOU from Evelene Twitchell after she received a phone call from the FBI on May 14, 2003. The Arrowrock Memorandum of Understanding is available, in its entirety, below. Copies of the actual document are available FREE from KWH. Ms. Twitchell has personally vouched for its authenticity.
Mr. Wood, Mr. Giannotti, Mr. Templeton, Mr. Parker ( recalled LMUD Directors) did not offer their signed affidavits as to the vote on April 25, 2001. The only notarized affidavit came from Keri Richards and Wayne Langston offered a letter. Mr. Cady did not offer any affidavit or letter. Cady always "suckers" other people to take the heat..when in fact, he is the Author of the Scam.
Director Sargent, Cardenas, Vazquez and Nagel were minimally implicated in the Arrowrock Fraud only because they failed to come forward with the truth. Now they are equally liable for their actions. Sargent, Cardenas, Vazquez and Nagel all agreed to change the minutes and protect Langston and Cady. These Board members were told by a ratepayer of the risks of personal liability and then immediately proceeded to unanimously pass the motion to alter the minutes of April 25, 2001.
CADY STARTS THE FIRES AND WANTS TO BE PAID TO PUT THEM OUT
Mr. Frank D. Cady lied to the Boise Project Board of Control about the financial condition of LMUD. Frank D. Cady lied to the LMUD ratepayers about LMUD's involvement in Arrowrock. LMUD must concentrate on the anticipated litigation from the Boise Project Board of Controls. We can all thank Mr. Cady for this........... not KWH.
Frank Cady is responsible for his own words.
"Cady said the MOU is a private contractual document with no expiration date" (May 6, 2003 Lassen County Time)
TRUTH: "The exclusivity provisions in the Districts (BPBC) agreement with LMUD to jointly develop the Project had ended in December 2001" (BPBC, page 9-REQUEST FOR EXTENSION).
LMUD, the last time we checked, was a PUBLIC UTILITY and thus the MOU became available to the public once it had ended.
LMUD minutes absolutely do not indicate ANYWHERE that any LMUD Board passed any motion to authorize signing the MOU or any funds for Arrowrock. (April 25, 2001 and August 8, 2001).
FRANK CADY HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT ALTERING LMUD MINUTES
Frank Cady, LMUD general counsel, is sending out letters to ratepayers asking for evidence of the vote on the Arrowrock MOU/Power Purchase-Sales Agreement , at the April 25, 2001 LMUD meeting. The LMUD Board voted to alter the "approved minutes" of April 25, 2003 so that it would appear they had the authority to sign a Power Purchase Agreement with the Boise Project Board of Controls (Arrowrock).
Mr. Cady did not submit any type of affidavit himself that there was in fact a vote on the Arrowrock MOU/Power Purchase Agreement. Mr. Cady's job during the April 25, 2001 meeting was only to distract the public to the fact that a formal resolution was needed not a motion.
Keri Richards was asked to submit a notarized statement that a vote was taken on the MOU on April 25, 2001. She is the only one that was foolish enough to do this. Maybe she was told that everyone was going to do one and then ended up being the only one ?????
The following management staff was in attendance at the April 25, 2001 LMUD meeting:
Don Battles, Bob Gaumond, Louie Templeton, Marino Giannotti, Darrell Wood, Richard Parker, WAYNE LANGSTON, FRANK CADY and KERI RICHARDS.
LMUD only got an affidavit from Keri Richards.
The LMUD was given BAD ADVICE again from their legal advisor. When are they going to wake up and find competent counsel? ANSWER: When they are forced to.
Mr. Cady is now seeking help from the very people that warned him not to change the minutes......
