San Mateo County has a Historical Election today. For the first time in 25 years the resident/voters get to vote on the Sheriff Office, one of the most important offices in the County. There are 3 candidates, Illegally Appointed Carlos Bolanos who has been a candidate the longest over 3 years. Why would anybody start a campaign that long ago?
Then there is SMC Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville who started his campaign about 1 year ago. Mr. Melville told several editors of the local papers, “Carlos Bolanos is a Liar” that he watched the 3 minute video of Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula’s presentation to Don Horsley and Carole Groom and the other Supervisors on March 13, 2018 regarding his 3 years effort to get to the truth about what happened the night of April 21, 2007. Mr. Melville said Mark De Paula’s Presentation was brilliant and it proved “Munks and Bolanos were liars.”
The editors of at least 3 advertising businesses, SMDJ, PADP, The Almanac, chose not to let the voters know about the “Carlos Bolanos is a Liar” statement. That is unusual for a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy to call his boss a liar. We are pretty sure most SMC residents would think that is newsworthy.
The third candidate (Write In) is Heinz Pushendorf another San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy who was the President of the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA the night of April 21, 2007. He told editors that “Carlos Bolanos Ordered him not to talk about or mention Operation Dollhouse.” He also said “Carlos Bolanos is trying to get him to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement.” Again the editors didn’t think that was newsworthy.
Residents/voters take back your County VOTE TODAY if you haven’t already.
The results can be viewed here tonight at 8:05PM
