Yesterday January 25, 2022 at the regular Board of Supervisors Meeting Agenda Item 12 was passed with flying colors as expected.
What was the exact amount of Taxpayer Money Invested in the more than $10,000,000.00 of PPE that ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes first reported about on January 13, 2022.
It’s one thing for San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy to NOT KNOW that amount on the 13th. It’s another thing to still NOT KNOW IT 15 days later when he is reporting to his Bosses.
Mike Callagy is an At Will Employee of the Supervisors, His work product is an exact reflection of THEM.
The Supervisors never asked Mr. Callagy:
Did you order the PPE boxes to be moved outside the SMC Event Center building? Yes or No
What is the name of the Investigator you hired? What date did you hire him/her?
The Supervisors never asked James Brown of the Wine Country Marines and CEO of West Coast Solutions Inc. of San Carlos to attend and speak at the meeting. They never asked him to explain his Facebook page posted on January 13, 2022 6:00PM declaring the Generous Donation of PPE from SMC. He also told Dan Noyes: “We don’t want anybody to take this and put it on eBay because that’s in essence money laundering, you’re taking federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions and you’re turning it into cash for you,” Brown said, continuing, “We’re not going to allow that.
The Wine Country Marines will proceed in the distribution of the $10M of PPE starting Thursday January 27, 2022. Some 90 unnamed groups have contacted WCM so far. Every single person or group that receives this PPE should either live or work in San Mateo County.
There is ZERO oversight of this giveaway.
