Coastside Progressive Democrats Endorse Mark Melville for Sheriff 2018.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

This is another Great and Brave endorsement for Mark Melville. Think about it, the coast side residents are policed/patrolled by the Sheriff’s Office. The same Sheriff’s Office that murdered Yanira Serrano Garcia several years ago. The same Sheriff’s Office that mishandled an identity theft case involving John Ullom. The same Sheriff’s Office that opened a criminal investigation involving Sabrina Brennan when they knew the allegations were false. Even knowing that Carlos Bolanos approved the case be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office with the recommendation to prosecute. This is the same Sheriff Office Gang Task Force that assaulted and threatened a San Mateo County Probation Officer in Half Moon Bay. That unit lead by Sgt. Jason Peardon doesn’t file Incident Reports when the assault and threaten residents.

The Coast is taking a stand It’s time for Honesty. It’s important the Sheriff is honest.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy and former President of the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA  has taken papers out to be a Write in Candidate for Sheriff 2018.

Based on what he saw that night he decided to offer his services to the residents/voters of San Mateo County.

Qualifications: On April 21, 2007 Heinz Puschendorf was the President of the DSA and he was working here in San Mateo County that day and night.

FBI’s Operation Dollhouse, San Mateo County’s number 1 & 2 Sheriff and Undersheriff were caught and detained as Customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Child.

Carlos Bolanos, makes a dishonest & misleading statement to CBS Las Vegas 2007

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Mateo County has an election for Sheriff this May 8-June 5, 2018. The first time in 25 years the residents get to pick their Sheriff.

A Quality to look for in a Sheriff in Honesty.

Reporter Robert Lyles of CBS5 in 2007 said Carlos Bolanos told CBS Las Vegas

“There is nothing Illegal about being at a massage parlor.”

 That is a true statement, however the dishonest and misleading part is Carlos Bolanos was not at a massage parlor. He was here.

 

This is an Illegal brothel that had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor.

It is Illegal to be here Carlos Bolanos and you know it.

The upper right photo is a trailer for more customers, bars on windows of the private residence.

For the last 11 years the majority of political leaders of San Mateo County have not only refused to do their job which was to Fire Carlos Bolanos on the spot, they currently endorse this behavior and him personally.

Time for the residents to take back their County.

San Mateo Daily Journal Jon Mays refuses to produce “Later Reports Indicated” he declared in Bolanos Endorsement.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.

Munks maintained that he made a mistake and that he thought it was a legitimate business that provided massage and apologized publicly for his lack of judgment. Bolanos said he was never inside the building.

 

Every description of the location reveals a horrid situation. It was clearly a brothel, in decrepit condition, and had prostitutes there from other countries. An FBI report on the investigation provided to the Daily Journal reveals there was likely a juvenile involved.

 Clearly, there was a significant lapse of judgment in both Bolanos and Munks being at the location, with Munks inside during the raid. This was a big mistake.

Munks is not running for election. Bolanos is. Anyone who believes that the decision to be at the location, albeit outside, is reason enough to not vote for Bolanos is justified. If anyone chooses not to believe Bolanos, they too are justified.

Bolanos said he was never inside the building. We believe him. We also believe there was a lapse of judgment in agreeing to go with Munks to that location. However, voters face a choice in this election as to who they want to run the Sheriff’s Office and we must weigh all the facts and qualifications to determine our recommendation as to who would do that most effectively.

Running against Bolanos is Mark Melville, a deputy within the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office who has had a long, varied and itinerant career in both law enforcement and city management. He has been city manager of two tiny Central Valley cities — Gustine and Livingston, the latter of which has a current population of 13,000. While Melville has strong positions on what is wrong with the Sheriff’s Office — too much overtime, poor morale — he has very few solid suggestions aside from a full review of every division and to redefine the training and hiring process. While both can yield some positive results, it does not seem to be enough of a solid plan. Melville said he decided to run because he felt voters deserved a choice, and that is to be commended. He also has the requisite experience on paper, but has not managed an organization even close to the size of the Sheriff’s Office. Bolanos currently oversees 800 employees and a $250 million budget — the approximate equivalent of a 100,000 population city.

Bolanos has also proved to be adept at contending with the budget, though the office is currently contending with an understaffing issue similar to many other organizations in this high-cost area. Bolanos is currently mandating one weekly shift of overtime per worker deputy, which is not a long-term solution but reasonable in the short term, while also keeping under budget. This is a skill learned over time managing a large organization both in the Sheriff’s Office as appointed sheriff and undersheriff and as Redwood City police chief before that.

Bolanos has also emphasized the need for crisis intervention training for patrol, rebuilt the firing range at no cost to the county, and expanded the Sheriff’s Activities League. SAL has proven to be effective in not only keeping youth out of trouble after school but also establishing a connection between them and the deputies serving the communities. It has been particularly effective in the North Fair Oaks community, known for its working class Latino families.

Bolanos has also been a strong advocate for maintaining strong ties to the Latino community in light of concern about the current presidential administration’s policy shift when it comes to immigration and California’s Senate Bill 54. Not only has the Sheriff’s Office provided bridge outreach for immigrants to services but Bolanos has spent countless hours since the 2016 presidential election ameliorating concerns about the office’s policy on how it contends with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests. Bolanos said he maintains the policy that the Sheriff’s Office will not hold inmates after release for ICE agents and actually supported SB 54 as modifications were made in the legislation’s later stages to define the violent and dangerous felonies that would call for ICE contact. Bolanos also uses public safety as a guiding principal and believes the more comfort the populace feels in reporting crimes, the better the overall community is in being safe.

While an organization such as the Sheriff’s Office can always use improvement, we do not believe it would benefit from Melville taking the reins. We do think Melville has brought up some interesting points and Bolanos would benefit from heeding them as he begins his first official term.

And while the incident in Nevada will forever be a mark against the office, Bolanos has proven to be a serious, stable and effective manager when it comes to its primary mission — ensuring the safety of the community. Of the two candidates running, he deserves your vote.

This is my second request of Mr. Mays.

Hello Jon,
Can you please produce the “later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.” that your paper used to promote this story.
 
I can tell you I have assisted more than 10 civilians over the last 11 years on this topic and your endorsement was the first any of us have heard that description. I’m aware that Don Horsley recently made a similar statement to a political person. I told him/her it was completely false. I’m waiting to see what your source is.
 
Thank You

Hello Jon,
In your Endorsement of Carlos Bolanos you state “Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.” Could you pease identify these reports by date and author. To my knowledge LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes have never changed their statements placing Bolanos inside.
Thank You
Michael
I am not the only person asking the San Mateo Daily Journal to show the 83,500 daily readers their source for this declaration “later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.”

    In the News and Information Business mistakes are made and a public correction is made. It’s one thing to get something wrong, It’s another to promote a lie.
    Is the San Mateo Daily Journal being a good neighbor, a good citizen?
    Please join us in encouraging Jon Mays to identify and produce the “later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.”
    This is not about prostitution, its Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children, Carlos Bolanos was detained as a Customer. It’s that simple.

Sabrina Brennan’s Terri Miller Quote. The 15 year old trafficked minor was “terrified.”

The subject matter is Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children, and Carlos Bolanos.

I have said that Sabrina Brennan’s Endorsement is more valuable than two Congresswomen in the past. The reason I say this is simple She is honest she represents the average resident/citizen living in San Mateo County wether they voted for her or not.

San Mateo Daily Journal Misleads their 83,450 readers. It’s that simple

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

This is the main reason it is so expensive to campaign in County Wide Elections. Advertising Businesses that look like Newspapers are allowed to be distributed to the unsuspecting residents. The County Supervisors and all Elected Officials are responsible for allowing this misinformation to be provided to the public. There should be Fact Checking for Honesty, and if the business does not meet a certain standard they should not be allowed to be distributed.

“It is the mission of the Daily Journal to be the most accurate, fair and relevant local news source for those who live, work and play on the mid-Peninsula”

Thank you for your interest in the Daily Journal, the only locally-owned daily newspaper on the San Francisco Peninsula.

We reach a large, affluent, and mobile audience throughout San Mateo and northern Santa Clara Counties, an audience that lives here, works here and shops here.

We are the Peninsula’s leading local news­paper and the Peninsula’s local news leader. In fact, the Daily Journal has been called “the de facto newspaper of record for San Mateo County.”

Could your business use 83,450 new leads in one day from one of the most affluent areas of the nation? That’s what we do at the Daily Journal, we connect advertisers to our readers; it’s that simple.

Our large and loyal audience will see your presence in the Daily Journal, and you will achieve a return on your investment. However, more than that, you will also be seen as supporting a community institution, a locally owned newspaper that does good and helps make the Peninsula a better place.

When you become a Daily Journal ad­vertiser, your company will play an im­portant role in our community cycle, and that kind of goodwill is priceless for any business or organization.

We welcome you to join the many oth­er businesses that use the Daily Journal in our multiple channels — print, web, event marketing and more — to fulfill

their marketing needs on The Penin­sula. And if you are one of those lucky businesses that don’t need any market­ing, you can still help fund a commu­nity institution that does good. Our readers will recognize your support.

Editorial April 13, 2018 Bolanos for Sheriff

Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.

In this first paragraph there is no mention of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children at the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon St, Las Vegas, Nevada.

No mention of the 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 cash that was seized at the illegal brothel.

They leave out the fact that it was a 2 year multi jurisdictional Sting called Operation Dollhouse in Las Vegas, FBI, Las Vegas Metro Police, Las Vegas Sheriff Office, IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and ICE.

An initial news report, That is not even remotely close to the truth. The very first reports and there were several from 2 Las Vegas Metro Police Officers who were working that night. LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes of Vice both separately placed Bolanos inside the residence. They have never changed their statement. The SMDJ specifically Jon Mays has refused to identify his later reports indicated declaration. “outside the entire time.”

Munks maintained that he made a mistake and that he thought it was a legitimate business that provided massage and apologized publicly for his lack of judgment. Bolanos said he was never inside the building.

Every description of the location reveals a horrid situation. It was clearly a brothel, in decrepit condition, and had prostitutes there from other countries. An FBI report on the investigation provided to the Daily Journal reveals there was likely a juvenile involved.

Clearly, there was a significant lapse of judgment in both Bolanos and Munks being at the location, with Munks inside during the raid. This was a big mistake.

Munks is not running for election. Bolanos is. Anyone who believes that the decision to be at the location, albeit outside, is reason enough to not vote for Bolanos is justified. If anyone chooses not to believe Bolanos, they too are justified.

We are not sure that having the Gang Task Force led by a Dishonest Sgt. ensures the safety of anyone.

December 15, 2015 Board of Supervisor meeting Michael Stogner a private victim’s advocate informs Supervisors in public about a dishonest San Mateo County Sheriff Office employee Sgt. Jason Peardon, Carlos Bolanos knew he was dishonest. This man produced a fraudulent I.A. Investigation against former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez 5:18 mark of the video.

Melissa Renee Anne McKowan is no longer employed by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

According to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe she is no longer employed by his office and she now works as an attorney for the Private Defender Program. She left the DA’s office about 2 months ago.

Some readers might recall we wrote about her 2nd State Bar Court appearance in April 2017 for 2 counts of dishonesty. We also notified the 7 advertising businesses and attempted to post blogs on The Almanac and Half Moon Bay Review but we were blocked.

I had asked the question how could San Mateo County employ a dishonest prosecutor?How was she still employed by the DA’s Office?

Here is one article
