Cameron Park CSD’s McNeil steps down from Dist. 2 supe’s race

SCOTT McNEIL

In a surprise announcement, Scott McNeil issued a statement on Monday stating that he had decided to withdraw from the race for District 2 Supervisor. McNeil is currently a member of the Cameron Park Community Services District board.

McNeil said his decision was based on this not being the right time for him to run, given that it required him to move his residence from District 4 to District 2. “Moving to run was not the right thing to do,” he said.

However, several Cameron Park residents question whether McNeil and his family ever lived in the district where he planned to run for supervisor. They further allege that in some of the paperwork he filed as a potential candidate, he actually misrepresented the address where he lived in order to qualify to run for supervisor.

McNeil stated that at the end of December he moved his family to a home at 3097 Cambridge Road, which put him in District 2. That is also the address he apparently listed on his voter registration form. But because the house went up for sale, he said he then moved his family again on Feb. 1 to an apartment at 3006 Cambridge Road, which is also in District 2.

However, residents in Cameron Park question whether he ever lived at the 3097 Cambridge Road home. They claim that the house has been empty for several months and that neither the water nor the electric meter has shown any activity for three months. They claim that McNeil simply parked one of his cars in front of the house and when they toured the interior of the house in January, there was no furniture in it other than an inflatable mattress.

Cameron Park resident Bill Carey said that residents also noticed that when McNeil would go home at night, he would go to his home in District 4 and not to either residence on Cambridge Road.

Elections officials said that McNeil listed the 3097 Cambridge Road residence on the initial papers he filed to run for supervisor. However, those papers were only a list of signatures in lieu of a filing fee. He never filed the Final Declaration of Candidacy and Nomination Papers. Those are due by March 9. Election rules are that a person must live in the district in which they are running 30 days before the deadline for filing such papers and McNeil never filed as a candidate.

Cameron Park resident Jim Riordan said that he wants to know what the CPCSD board will do now once they learn that one of their board members allegedly misrepresented his address in order to run for supervisor. He says that he and other citizens plan to ask the CPCSD to ask McNeil to resign or they will try to recall him.

“We don’t want a liar on the board of the CPCSD. We want someone who is honest and truthful,” said Riordan.

Cameron Park resident Barbara Rogers agreed with Riordan. She claims that there is a “dirty nasty conspiracy” involving a small group of people who used to live in Sacramento and now live in this county and who are trying to take control of the Board of Supervisors. She said she and others plan to launch a recall effort against McNeil to remove him from CPCSD.

In the meantime, McNeil says he plans to pack up his RV and head out for some quality time with his family.
