Newberry residents fill the February CSD Board meeting with concerns
over the Board's lack of transparency and silence on the status of the CSD's
Superior Court civil action to stop the Daggett Solar Power project.
Pants-On-Fire Director Jack Unger
Continues To Fib
Posted: March 1, 2020
On Friday, February 28, 2020, CSD director Jack Unger posted
the following on Facebook.
Unger's Post & February CSD Board Meeting
Contrary to Jack Unger's statement in his above post, a
mandatory "settlement conference" is not "required BY LAW." It is
an optional Rule of Court that is discretionarily exercised by most California
trial judges. Mandatory Settlement Conferences, more commonly referred
to as MSCs, can also be requested by any party to resolve a disputed
matter before consuming a court's time.
Jack Unger's statement is correct that I do feel that the
"Newberry CSD directors are selling out the community's residents."
Unger's quotation, however, does not exist anywhere within
my February 18, 2020, blog that he supposedly quotes from. Another one of
Unger's made up Pants-on-Fire  fibs.
My CSD sellout statement was proven 100% correct by President
Robert Springer, at the February Board meeting, holding steadfast on his statement
that the CSD will settle with the County if he believes that Newberry would be better
served by the CSD acquiring a settlement.
Any notion of settling the CSD's excellent civil action with
the County is a sellout betrayal. The Daggett Solar Project is illegal
under County Code and any settlement would falsely recognize it as legitimate.
Those who attended the February meeting can attest that Jack Unger
fibbed when he writes (above) that when he questioned me "What evidence do you have
that supports your published statement? He revealed the fact that he had NO
EVIDENCE. ZERO, ZIP, NADA and he quickly changed the subject."
The actual quotation that Unger cited at the meeting contained the
word "may"  that I caught him on. For evidence, I recited the lack
of the Board's transparency and President Springer's sellout statement provided at
the January 28th Board meeting.
If Jack Unger feels that I "quickly changed the subject,"
I must ask, why linger on it ? For Unger to argumentatively state
that I have provided no background evidence in my blogs is his confusion.
For him to take up the CSD's Board meeting time, and the time of
those attending, for his personal attacks and rant against a blogger, and to pass
out demented and asinine flyers before the meeting is reflective of his deeply
disturbed thinking. I don't wish to patronize such.
For the Mandatory Settlement Meeting (required by March 7th) the
CSD would have needed to present its settlement terms. What are they?
What measures will the CSD sell out the community for? While the CSD
may not have (yet) settled, terms would have been placed on the table for the Mandatory
Settlement Conference on March 9, 2020.
Unger and the other directors have repeatedly demonstrated to
me that they do not appear to be of a caliber that I can trust to stop the solar
The Friends of Newberry Springs need a greater participation
in the civil action to defend the community.
Jack Unger continues to receive a full five pants-on-fire rating.
