Heinz Puschendorf for San Mateo County Sheriff 2018, Write In Candidate

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. He attended the Candidates forum put on by the League of Women Voters that was for the public to be able to ask questions of appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and candidate Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville. 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. He was the Go To Guy when all Hell broke loose at a single family residence 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada that 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.

There was nothing massage parlor or prostitution about it. A house full of victims.

  • I will DEFER up to 70% of my SALARY to jumpstart My COMMITMENT to REDUCE waste in spending and to infuse/invigorate/repair the past 3 Sheriff’s decisions (No REAL Sheriff’s Election since 1992) such as:
    • Incumbent Sheriff’s Direct Orders for All Patrol Deputies to NOT Pursue ANY IN-Progress BURGLARY/Suspects (although we already have a backlog of 10’s of Thousands of cases), Placing all Property and their Owners at a HIGHER risk of being victimized

I have traveled abroad with many International and National Associations, Memberships and Organizations, to over 30 Countries, so as to Better understand ALL of the VARIOUS Issues which have and/or will eventually come to our SHORES and into our County.

PLEASE DO NOT LET THE POWERS that be, keep you ALL being OSTRICHES, Your heads Buried in the sand.

VOTE, Make the change and ALLOW Me to FIX the Dysfunctional and broken system, while maintaining your assistance and Guidance to keep things on track.

Your Respectful Civil Servant and 2018 Elected Sheriff,

Heinz L. Puschendorf
