I was the first News Reporter to report about Sandra Lee Harmon being killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay, California. I reported it at 10:37 PM. The Sheriff’s Office First tweet was at 11:19 PM.
Testing and Contact Tracing should be and should have been the Number One Priority of San Mateo County Supervisors.
When will San Mateo County have Testing for All Residents like L.A. County just announced?
Saving Lives, Shelter in Place, No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine, Critical Shortages of all PPE, are all important topics, none are more important than Testing and Contact Tracing.
San Mateo County has 771,000 residents, Since January 1, 2020 when BlueDot Inc. first warned of the Virus a total of 13,004 Residents have been tested. That’s 4 months to test 13,004. SMC has No Idea how many residents are infected as of today, How could they?
State officials said they are testing more than 20,000 people a day — a third of the minimal daily tests needed to reopen. The State of California has 40,000,000 residents. You do the math
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Wednesday that all county residents can now get free coronavirus testing at city-run sites. Until now, only residents with symptoms, as well as essential workers and those in institutional settings such as nursing homes, could be tested.
Stay at Home, Save Lives until Testing and Contact Tracing comes to San Mateo County.
The San Mateo County Sheriff Employees and their Families. They have a right to know and they have a right to protect themselves if you won’t.
Sheriff Bolanos, What is your plan to protect your Employees?
What is your plan to protect the Inmates in San Mateo County?

David Silberman <firstname.lastname@example.org>To: Michael Stogner Tue, Mar 17 at 6:32 PM
I am working on a special assignment related to response to Covid-19 and it may take me a longer than usual amount of time to respond. Please bear with me.
What are you and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman providing as a Safe Quarantine Location for Deputies who come into contact with potential COVID-19 carriers, or Confirmed people with the virus? Is there a location for them to safely stay away from their families if that is what the Spouses desire.
Has the Jail Population been reduced?
Have you instructed the Patrol Deputies to interact with the public in a different way since Jan. 20, 2020?
San Mateo County Sheriff G. Bolanos has refused to answer that Question?

Hello Rosemerry and Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Can you tell me How many Test Kits does the Sheriff’s Office have on hand today, What is the Policy for patrol Deputies interacting with the public and when should they be testing for their safety. Since COVID-19 Positive Results are from people who show no sign of illness, what are you and D.J Wozniak advising the Deputies and Sergeants to do to Protect themselves and their families. Have you provided a safe location for Deputies to self Quarantine away from their families if that is what the spouses request. Have you had any Deputies or Correctional Officers tested for COVID-19 to date. Have any tested positive? Do you have any staff of Self Quarantine today?
Thank You Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com
COVID-19 Testing is the Most Important action that can take place.
San Mateo County Sheriff Office released the Booking photo of Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez the day he was arrested which is exactly what the Sheriff Office is expected to do. Booking Photos belong to the Public.
Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez was Booked into jail, fingerprinted and photographed. He was charged with Smuggling a Cell-Phone and Drugs into Maguire Jail where he worked and he gave them to a Hells Angel Gang Member according to the Sheriff and District Attorney. That was over 5 years ago, There was never any evidence that those allegations were true or accurate. That is Outrageous Government Conduct, and Prosecutorial Misconduct.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino was arrested for DUI September 14, 2019 @ 11:30 PM by the Redwood City Police Department on Broadway near the Deputy Sheriff Association building which has a bar in it. He refused both Blood and Breath test which according to DMV website is a Suspension of Drivers License for a 1 year period. The officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV.
It’s not clear that Redwood City Police Officer’s took his Drivers License away from him or not at this time.
What is clear is that the Sheriff’s Office has refused to provide the Booking Photo.
The Supervisors of San Mateo County are the Oversight for the Residents.
Was Sheriff Sergeant Aquino Under-Charged and given Special treatment?

See Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade do release the Booking photos of some people arrested in San Mateo County. They both are still refusing to release the Booking photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino who was arrested September 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department for DUI and refusing both Breath and Blood tests. Could you please ask both of them to explain why? Thank You Michael G. StognerSan Mateo County News.com

This is still the big question for parents of Daughters, what do you tell them about interacting with Police Officers. Should they pull over right away if they get lit up or continue driving to a very public location. San Mateo County Law Enforcement and the Supervisors have never addressed this very serious issue. Perhaps they should.
