July 1, 2016 Ms. Durand issues a NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.
“San Mateo County Statements on Sheriff Munks’ Retirement” was the title.
At the bottom of page Please note: “The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors will discuss next steps to fill the remaining two years of Munks’ term at its regular July 12, 2016 meeting.

July 5, 2016 Internal -Departmental Correspondence from County Manager’s Office and County Counsel, that’s John Maltbie and John Beiers to Honorable Board of Supervisors.
Subject : Vacancy in the Office of Sheriff
Recommendation: Make appointment or call an election. That is a Huge difference from what Michelle Durand was telling the 750,000 plus residents of San Mateo County, which was to discuss which PROCESS to choose either appointment or election process.
John Maltbie is Michelle Durand’s boss. Ms. Durand never made a correction to her July 1, 2016 Press Release but somebody deleted it from the County’s website.
