Who would you expect to say something like this: “If somebody stabs me in the back, I’m going to break their arm and use that knife in unthinkable ways.”
Would your Police Chief be the first person that comes to mind. I didn’t think so but that is what Broadmoor Police Chief Michael Connolly is quoted as saying.
Can you imagine living in a very small community that Law Enforcement is controlled by this individual. You would want to make sure that you, your spouse, your children didn’t do anything that he could construe as a Stab in the Back. If he came around to your house and asked for donations you would think twice before declining wouldn’t you.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has an Open Investigation into Brown Acts Violations which happen to be Criminal Acts. The FPPC referred those Brown Act Violations to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. Steve Wagstaffe should refer this case to the A.G.
I’m recommending you call or send e-mails to the State Of California Attorney Generals Office to have them take over the Investigation based on Steve Wagstaffe’s History of Brown Act Violation Enforcement or lack of enforcement.
Another reason is SMCDA Inspector Jordan Boyd used to work for the Broadmoor Police Force.
I don’t think very many Broadmoor Residents are aware of the Investigation and even if they were I wouldn’t expect any of them to make a public comment. This is similar to Child Abuse or Domestic Violence cases many family members stay silent.
Broadmoor is in Unincorporated San Mateo County covering 0.55 square mile. Population of 5,100
