We are a News & Information site for the benefit of the 760,000 residents of San Mateo County. We report on issues of Corruption in San Mateo County, Sheriff and District Attorney Misconduct, Misconduct in our Courts including Judicial Misconduct, Misconduct of the Board of Supervisors and County Counsel.  I Michael G. Stogner have worked as a Private Victim’s Advocate in SMC for the past 20 years. I assist Victims and Whistleblowers with their data and help them prepare for law firms that can assist them with their cases. I am co-owner with Sarah Navratil, of San Mateo County News.Com

All Court Sessions should be Videoed and Defendants, Members of the Public, and the Media should be allowed to record everything that is spoken in the courtroom. That all by itself would reduce the Corruption.

We publish the honest information the other 7 advertising businesses refuse to.

  1. Hey, you came up under a search regarding an FBI investigation into a San Mateo County incident regarding a 19-year-old. I can find only one primary source for the information. Are you able to provide court documents or more resources?

    Hi! Thank you for your efforts to bring information to the public. My name is Bridget Duffy, I am from Pacifica and I am running for state assembly in San Mateo County. I myself was a victim of sex trafficking as a young teenager and it very nearly distroyed my life. I am just finding out through the process of running for office how far reaching are the overlapping systems of fraternity that keep conditions ripe for the dominance and abuse of women and girls. I called channel 7 and let them know that to have a story about Sherif Balomos and to not air it, is colusion as far as I am concerned and that I will be ringing some bells about it.
    My # is 415- 760- 2084- I would love to work with you and people like you. I am also a citizen watchdog in Pacifica, witnessing and documenting the scandalous behavior of our public servants. I write a newsletter based on the notes I take at city coucil meetings, called EYES ON PACIFICA. It’s not online.
    Thank you, I hope to hear from you.

    It’s frustrating when local newspapers try to squash knowledge.

    I have submitted multiple comments to the San Mateo Journal in response to their endorsement of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff, saying that per other reports, he and Sheriff Munks submitted false identification to the FBI when they were busted in the trafficking brothel. That’s a felony. False IDs also suggest intent to break the law and conspiracy.

    The Journal will hear none of it.

    Thank you for standing like a rock against corruption.

    I am writing concerning the construction that may start on Crystal Springs Road On Dec. 27. There are a number of problems, liability and Disabled Rights issues with the plan.

    1. The first quarter mile of Crystal Springs Road from El Camino West, houses an unusually large number of disabled and senior people, many of whom require home care workers to survive. A number of those senior people have COVID. The last construction in this area, recently prevented the home care workers from coming and prevented the senior and disabled people from receiving care. The disability rights laws may have been violated then and may be again.

    2. It is a PANDEMIC and most people are at home in this area with no garages or off-street parking. Permits are hard to get in San Mateo. You are closing off parking during the holidays when most people are home AND during a PANDEMIC when people have to be home in an area where people have no place else to go. You should rent the entire parking building at the corner of El Camino Real and 2nd and offer people free parking during the period.

    3. Home care workers are an organized group, apartment dwellers are an organized group, seniors are an organized group, Disabled people and their families are a nationally organized group. All of them are likely to sue for damages and harms and a lawyer who lives on the street is already seeing what he can organize.

    4. When they recently tore up the street and stopped the parking, their signs were not timely updated, removed or monitored.

    5. When they recently tore up the street, the construction people did not compress to the least space needed and left No Parking signs where they were not even needed. The construction people should be ordered to work only in 100 ft sections and not lounge around on peoples fences or cars.

    6. Doing this over the Holiday season in a pandemic is the worst possible date. This whole project should not start until March of 2022, if at all. It is a recession and bad economy and causing residents to spend more to accommodate this avoidable disruption is unfair and a cause of action.

    7. Asking residents and workers in the area to give their private phone numbers to strange construction workers is a severe security risk and an open door to data hackers and break-ins.

    PS- From another neighbor:

    ” weeks ago the on site project manager said he would pick up all of the red plastic construction poles. If you drive down Crystal Springs Road, today Dec 10 at 10:00Am, the red plastic poles are scattered all up and down Crystal Springs road, haphazard, never picked up, serving no purpose and looking like construction workers went nuts. They were never stacked as promised…”

    Elden, you can get in your car right now and go look. The poles are laying all over Crystal Springs Road starting at El Camino, like crooked middle fingers raised in the air as an FU to the neighborhood.

    From yet another neighbor:

    “This pipe was lobbied into place by Elon Musk and Jarred Birchel, et al; for his property located at 819 Crystal Springs Road, San Mateo California. He has now sold the property to another oligarch with the promise that the new owner will get a “nice new pipe”. Musk is now under felony investigation for multiple crimes. Today Musk announced in the news that he is thinking about “quitting all of his jobs” to become a hell raiser on the internet. This is all in the news.

    Why should the “poor people” at one end of Crystal Springs suffer because of the arrogant criminal oligarchs at the other end of Crystal Springs? San Matteo has already sued Musk’s oligarch Buddy Vinod Khosla for screwing with the public at Martin’s Beach, Calwater should not allow themselves to be the puppets of mobster oligarchs”

    All these communications are now being placed on public record…

    Thank you
