THE NEXT "ARROWROCK"
LMUD Board Lies About $80,444 UAMPS Payback
Kan We Help called this Bogus affiliation between UAMPS & LMUD years ago.
The Utah based UAMPS has nothing to offer the Lassen Municipal Utility District ratepayers. This organization just came here to drain the coffers.
The LMUD Board and General Manager never had any intention of this relationship benefitting the ratepayers. It has however, provided many VERY EXPENSIVE retreats and vacation meetings for Board Members and Ray Luhring.
There will be no payback.
UAMPS does not have the money to pay back even if it is in 6 installments.
The LMUD Board's incredible lack of business acumen has led to yet another stupid fake energy scam.
UAMPS plan is to repay LMUD in "energy credits"
Presently LMUD is posting between $400.00 -$1200 monthly payments TO UAMPS for ENERGY?.
Kan We Help has not been able to find out what these small payments to UAMPS have really been for.
LMUD Minutes, September 28, 2010
LMUD continues to "diddle" with UAMPS
Bottom line: No market for natural gas
UAMPS, JUST A PILE OF CRAP. They, like the Arrowrock people, are looking for a naive utility board to sell their lies
LMUD announces phony UAMPS study for bogus natural gas project
LMUD pays for these studies but never releases them because they don't really exist.
What does this money really pay for?
LMUD misleads public about involvement with UAMPS, a political organization in Utah
First, UAMPS does not sell power.
LMUD is disguising membership payments ($1,000-$4,000 monthly) as power purchases.
Second, why would any public entity financially support a Joint Powers Agreement unless there was a potential of financial gain or plans of participating in the program.? ANSWER: they wouldn't
LMUD fully intends to obligate LMUD ratepayers in this bogus project
General Manager, Ray Luhring is on the UAMPS Board and Jay Dow was put on the Joint Powers Agreement
public beware*public beware*public beware*public beware*public beware*public beware*public beware
Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative customer, FRED NAGEL, hides August trip to UAMPS conference in Utah
Is Nagel representing PSREC or LMUD?
LMUD General Manager, Ray Luhring, is on the UAMPS Board......Does he get reimbursed from UAMPS and LMUD to go to these monthly "meetings"?
From January-July of 2009, Ray Luhring has spent $3,177.20 to go to UAMPS meetings every single month
Fred Nagel and Wayne Langston's new "Vacation" Meeting Project
LMUD residents AGAIN... will get NOTHING
Kan We Help exposed the Arrowrock scam, the NCPA party projects, Invenergy wind, the phony electric plant "Resource 500", etc. This Agreement is no different.
LMUD CLAIMS THAT THEY KEPT NO RECORDS OF FAILED UAMPS PROJECT COSTS ?
....................sound like Arrowrock?
LMUD General Manager, Ray Luhring, says that there was no accounting kept of the $80,440 spent on the failed UAMPS project, yet he claims that UAMPS will reimburse all LMUD costs in "POWER CREDITS"
On June 23, 2009, LMUD General Manager, Ray Luhring states that UAMPS announced a settlement agreement on June 5, 2009.
On July 16, 2009, Lurhring states that "The Settlement Agreement between UAMPS and the Intermountain Power Agency (IPA) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) as yet, is not in the possession of the Lassen Municipal Utility District".
Could Ray Luhring have released a statement to the LMUD Board a mite prematurely or made false statements about UAMPS?
UAMPS was a lie from the very beginning
LMUD CLAIMS THAT THE $80,440.08 INVESTED
IN A FAILED PROJECT WITH UAMPS WILL BE REIMBURSED
But No money will be reimbursed................ THE $80,440.08 payment will be made in "POWER".....SURE..............
UAMPS project was bogus yesterday, today
LMUD Board members spent more than the $80,000 they are claiming they spent on this phony project. There were numerous trips to UAMPS by LMUD Board members and General Manager. LMUD needs to fully disclose the costs of this bogus project or KWH will.
Old LMUD Directors and General Manager knew about UAMPS legal troubles "before" they signed up to throw good money down the toilet.

LMUD WILL NOT GET A DIME BACK
LMUD attorney lies about UAMPS contract
The UAMPS contract signed on November 13, 2008 stated that the original agreement with UAMPS (Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems) was February 17, 1999. NOT TRUE.
LMUD cannot produce any agreement with UAMPS earlier than December 26, 2006.
This was typical dishonesty from the "Cady trained" Jones and Langston. There was no February 17, 1999 agreement with UAMPS as stated in the "November 13, 2008 UAMPS contract" presented to the LMUD Board to approve.
Also, Cady and Jones falsely represented LMUD's involvement on December 26, 2006. The LMUD Board, Cardenas, Sargent, Wood, Nagel and Langston passed a "First" and "Second" amendment to a NEW agreement so it appeared to be an OLD existing contract.......this is starting to look like the new "Arrowrock" scam
and the Academy Award for BEST ACTOR goes to.........Fred Nagel
BEST "SUPPORTING" ACTOR:
Honorable mention: Langston
The true story is forthcoming!
Hint: Which LMUD Board Members own property in Wendel?
