CPCSD drama: McNeil called a ‘serial bully’

Conflict bracketed the Nov. 18 Cameron Park Community Services District Board of Directors meeting as President Scott McNeil came under fire for alleged bullying.

Vicky Neibauer, president of the Cameron Park Community Services District, has resigned from the board. Neibauer submitted her resignation in an e-mail to General Manager Mary Cahill prior to last Wednesday’s board meeting.

What’s best for Cameron Park

EDITOR: I can’t stress enough to the people who use the Cameron Park Community Center how important it is to vote for the people who will think about what is best for the entire community. Those people are Margaret Mohr, Scott McNeil, Greg Stanton and Amy Blackmon. I get so sick of reading the bashing […]

A double-edged opportunity for Cameron Park

Cameron Park candidate

EDITOR: We are approaching the time when we will be electing new board members at the Cameron Park CSD. We have an incumbent, Scott McNeil, who, when he was elected had no history and no track record. People did not see what type of person they were electing. We have since learned that Scott McNeil […]

McNeil says no to oversight

EDITOR: At the Cameron Park CSD meeting on Feb. 13, several items were discussed that proved to be very revealing about Scott McNeil’s either lack of seriousness or understanding when it comes to his fiduciary responsibilities to the taxpayer of Cameron Park as a member of the Community Services District Board of Directors. The first […]

Cameron Park GM

EDITOR: The Cameron Park CSD general manager, Mary Cahill, receives a salary of $100,000 a year plus benefits and is given 36 days off per year with pay. This means she works about 10.5 months per year. As a result of the actions of the male members of the Board of Directors at the October […]

Cameron Park board member out of control

EDITOR: The Cameron Park CSD has a rogue board member. This director is Scott McNeil. The reasons for him taking the positions that he does is because he does not have the intellect or aptitude to operate in a logical or rational manner. The methods he uses to survive are verbal attacks on other board […]

Skate park face off

A minor dustup over the skate park at Christa McAuliffe Park occurred Wednesday night between the board of directors of the Cameron Park Community Services District and several residents.

Cameron Park inks 5-year Cal Fire deal

The Wednesday night board meeting of the Cameron Park Community Services District (CPCSD) was relatively sedate, with contracts and resolutions occupying most of the agenda.

The Cameron Park community deserves better

EDITOR: Immediately upon opening the May board meeting, Cameron Park CSD Board President Shiva Frentzen read an e-mail written by board member Scott McNeil with district counsel, staff and the public present. McNeil had “safety concerns” for himself, staff, women and children who attend CSD Board meetings indicating he felt “intimidated” by Gerald Lillpop’s abrasive […]

Thanking Scott McNeil

EDITOR: I would like to thank Scott McNeil for his attempt to stifle my public descent. One of the most frustrating things about being a property-owning, tax-paying, voting citizen of Cameron Park and going to the board meetings is watching the fiscally unsustainable spending that the CSD perpetuates. Due to Mr. McNeil’s efforts an article appeared […]

Dog park drawing flak

Dog owners are lining up on opposite sides of the fence in a dispute over whether or not to build a dog park on a half-acre section of Hacienda Park in Cameron Park. On one side of the issue are members of the El Dorado Dog Owners Guild (EDDOG) who have raised approximately $40,000 to […]

Tucker optimistic about new role on Cameron board

CAMERON PARK — Scoldings from the public, a firing and a resignation — the Cameron Park Community Services District Board of Directors’ recent past might make someone think twice about joining these headline makers.

Dupray named Cameron Park CSD interim general manager

CAMERON PARK — The Cameron Park Community Services District Board of Directors held a special meeting on Friday, April 8, to deal with critical issues that couldn’t wait until the next regular meeting on April 20.

Loose cannon at Cameron Park CSD

EDITOR: Cameron Park Community Services District Board President Scott McNeil is a loose cannon and should be removed from our board. At a March 29 special meeting the board was in closed session for so long that the public went home before they reported back to open session. An interesting discussion ensued during the final moments […]

Cameron skate park reopens

The gates of Cameron Park’s skate park were reopened Wednesday morning, more than two weeks after they were locked shut over concerns of vandalism and other community disturbances. The Cameron Park Community Services District Board of Directors, in a unanimous vote, reversed its March 16 decision after hearing local reaction during its Tuesday night meeting’s […]

A sad day for Cameron Park

EDITOR: Scott McNeil and Greg Stanton, did you not run for the Cameron Park Community Services District board in order to serve our community? Yet in only three months you have done more harm and disservice to the community than most directors are able to do in several terms in office. Your vote to dismiss Fred […]

Cameron Park CSD double-cross

EDITOR: I heard it through the grapevine that the Cameron Park Community Services District held a special session last night (March 29) to discuss the Christa McAuliffe skatepark. I have no idea if the public was even invited to this meeting. It was not published on the Website’s calendar, which still shows a Town Hall […]

Cameron Park voters have been sold out

EDITOR: Cameron Park voters have been sold out by two new board members who promised positive change durning the campaign but are not delivering the goods. New board members Greg Stanton and Scott McNeil have no previous political experience. Other than attending a couple of board meetings leading up to the 2010 election they have […]

Cameron skate park closed

After evaluating a string of incidents and complaints stemming from Cameron Park’s skateboard park at Christa McAullife Park, the community services district’s board Wednesday night voted to close the facility effective immediately. The closure recommendation had been presented to the board by the community’s “Skate Park Ad Hoc Committee,” which was created last August to […]

Stanton wants a ‘brand Cameron Park’

Greg Stanton’s vision for Cameron Park includes more civic events, a dog park and a walkable town center, “if not in my lifetime, at least in my kids’.” “We have this bifurcated community because of the freeway, but so does El Dorado Hills, and they overcame it; so can we,” he said. “We just need […]

Cameron Park designs its future

Cameron Park has had a strong sense of identity since it was first envisioned by Larry and Ruth Cameron, who purchased the 5,000-acre ranch in the 1950s. If a community is defined by what it is not, you will hear residents say, “We’re not Placerville and we’re not El Dorado Hills.” They are pretty sure […]

5 vying for 3 seats on Cameron Park CSD board

By Mike Roberts Mother Lode News The Cameron Park Community Services District is unique in El Dorado County in that it also serves as a local fire district, a service it outsources to Cal Fire.

5 vying for 3 seats on Cameron Park CSD board

Mother Lode News The Cameron Park Community Services District is unique in El Dorado County in that it also serves as a local fire district, a service it outsources to Cal Fire. The board has five members. They serve four year terms. Current Directors Rich Green and Alan Clarke are two years into theirs. The […]

Stanton new CPCSD president

The end of the year board meeting of the Cameron Park Community Services District came with few surprises. New officers were elected on Dec. 16 with Greg Stanton taking over as president and Margaret Mohr as vice president. Board members also received an update on the redesign of the district’s website. The company designing the […]

The right to speak

As readers might expect, the Mountain Democrat supports efforts to preserve the First Amendment — freedom of religion, speech, press, the right to assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances — but the last right listed here seems to have slipped Cameron Park Community Services District board President Scott McNeil’s mind after […]

Enough is enough

EDITOR: In an article entitled “McNeil accused of serial bullying” by Dawn Hodson from your Nov. 23 edition, an incident between me and CSD Director Scott McNeil was highlighted. What Ms. Hodson left out of the article was that the incident started while I was lawfully at the podium addressing the Cameron Park Community Services District Board of […]

CPCSD board raises fees on development, lowers fees for swimmers

Bullying at any age

EDITOR: When we think about bullying, we mainly think about the bullying stories in the news that involve kids in school. But bullying can happen anywhere by anybody and the presence of bullies in any scenario should be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly. One would think that an elected official on a governing board of […]

Correction

In the Sept. 28 edition of the newspaper, the article titled “Updated fire fee approved by Cameron Park board” states that General Manager Mary Cahill’s contract was extended for another year on a 5-0 vote. That vote was 3-2 with Directors Scott McNeil, Greg Stanton and Amy Blackmon voting yes and Holly Morrison and Margaret Mohr […]

CPCSD war on elders

EDITOR: Cameron Park Community Services District experienced the abrupt resignation of two board presidents in 2014 (Director Shiva Frenzen left a third seat open when elected EDC supervisor).

Look who’s running

EDITOR: The behavior of a small group that attend the CPCSD Board of Directors is absolutely despicable. Namely Bill Carey, David Gelber, Barbara Rogers and Gerald Lillpop routinely personally attack and insult members of the board and staff, then hide behind their First Amendment right of free speech. Just because you have the right to […]

Running from their records

EDITOR: I find it curious that the two incumbent candidates running for the Cameron Park Community Services District Board of Directors, Scott McNeil and Greg Stanton, are not advertising themselves as incumbents on their huge election signs. I would expect that a candidate that was running for reelection would proudly display the fact that they […]
