San Mateo Daily Journal Jon Mays refuses to produce “Later Reports Indicated” he declared in Bolanos Endorsement.
The subject matter is Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children, and Carlos Bolanos.
I have said that Sabrina Brennan’s Endorsement is more valuable than two Congresswomen in the past. The reason I say this is simple She is honest she represents the average resident/citizen living in San Mateo County wether they voted for her or not.

This is the main reason it is so expensive to campaign in County Wide Elections. Advertising Businesses that look like Newspapers are allowed to be distributed to the unsuspecting residents. The County Supervisors and all Elected Officials are responsible for allowing this misinformation to be provided to the public. There should be Fact Checking for Honesty, and if the business does not meet a certain standard they should not be allowed to be distributed.

Editorial April 13, 2018 Bolanos for Sheriff
Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.
In this first paragraph there is no mention of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children at the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon St, Las Vegas, Nevada.
No mention of the 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 cash that was seized at the illegal brothel.
They leave out the fact that it was a 2 year multi jurisdictional Sting called Operation Dollhouse in Las Vegas, FBI, Las Vegas Metro Police, Las Vegas Sheriff Office, IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and ICE.
An initial news report, That is not even remotely close to the truth. The very first reports and there were several from 2 Las Vegas Metro Police Officers who were working that night. LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes of Vice both separately placed Bolanos inside the residence. They have never changed their statement. The SMDJ specifically Jon Mays has refused to identify his later reports indicated declaration. “outside the entire time.”
Munks maintained that he made a mistake and that he thought it was a legitimate business that provided massage and apologized publicly for his lack of judgment. Bolanos said he was never inside the building.
Every description of the location reveals a horrid situation. It was clearly a brothel, in decrepit condition, and had prostitutes there from other countries. An FBI report on the investigation provided to the Daily Journal reveals there was likely a juvenile involved.
Munks is not running for election. Bolanos is. Anyone who believes that the decision to be at the location, albeit outside, is reason enough to not vote for Bolanos is justified. If anyone chooses not to believe Bolanos, they too are justified.
Bolanos said he was never inside the building. We believe him. We also believe there was a lapse of judgment in agreeing to go with Munks to that location. However, voters face a choice in this election as to who they want to run the Sheriff’s Office and we must weigh all the facts and qualifications to determine our recommendation as to who would do that most effectively.
Running against Bolanos is Mark Melville, a deputy within the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office who has had a long, varied and itinerant career in both law enforcement and city management. He has been city manager of two tiny Central Valley cities — Gustine and Livingston, the latter of which has a current population of 13,000. While Melville has strong positions on what is wrong with the Sheriff’s Office — too much overtime, poor morale — he has very few solid suggestions aside from a full review of every division and to redefine the training and hiring process. While both can yield some positive results, it does not seem to be enough of a solid plan. Melville said he decided to run because he felt voters deserved a choice, and that is to be commended. He also has the requisite experience on paper, but has not managed an organization even close to the size of the Sheriff’s Office. Bolanos currently oversees 800 employees and a $250 million budget — the approximate equivalent of a 100,000 population city.
Bolanos has also proved to be adept at contending with the budget, though the office is currently contending with an understaffing issue similar to many other organizations in this high-cost area. Bolanos is currently mandating one weekly shift of overtime per worker deputy, which is not a long-term solution but reasonable in the short term, while also keeping under budget. This is a skill learned over time managing a large organization both in the Sheriff’s Office as appointed sheriff and undersheriff and as Redwood City police chief before that.
Bolanos has also been a strong advocate for maintaining strong ties to the Latino community in light of concern about the current presidential administration’s policy shift when it comes to immigration and California’s Senate Bill 54. Not only has the Sheriff’s Office provided bridge outreach for immigrants to services but Bolanos has spent countless hours since the 2016 presidential election ameliorating concerns about the office’s policy on how it contends with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests. Bolanos said he maintains the policy that the Sheriff’s Office will not hold inmates after release for ICE agents and actually supported SB 54 as modifications were made in the legislation’s later stages to define the violent and dangerous felonies that would call for ICE contact. Bolanos also uses public safety as a guiding principal and believes the more comfort the populace feels in reporting crimes, the better the overall community is in being safe.
While an organization such as the Sheriff’s Office can always use improvement, we do not believe it would benefit from Melville taking the reins. We do think Melville has brought up some interesting points and Bolanos would benefit from heeding them as he begins his first official term.
And while the incident in Nevada will forever be a mark against the office, Bolanos has proven to be a serious, stable and effective manager when it comes to its primary mission — ensuring the safety of the community. Of the two candidates running, he deserves your vote.
We are not sure that having the Gang Task Force led by a Dishonest Sgt. ensures the safety of anyone.
December 15, 2015 Board of Supervisor meeting Michael Stogner a private victim’s advocate informs Supervisors in public about a dishonest San Mateo County Sheriff Office employee Sgt. Jason Peardon, Carlos Bolanos knew he was dishonest. This man produced a fraudulent I.A. Investigation against former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez 5:18 mark of the video.
Carlos Bolanos caught and detained as a customer of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves.
The 15 year old trafficked minor was “Terrified” Terri Miller.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier is teaming up with Carlos Bolanos. Why? If she is serious about Human Trafficked Sex Slaves/Children as she claims, she would stay clear of him.

The Gun buy back program is a feel good program financed by the taxpayers. I would rather have that money spent on finding the thief at the Sheriff’s Office.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office still has 2 Stolen M-16’s missing no matter what Supervisor Don Horsley told KPIX 5 reporter Len Ramirez 9/12/2014 “they were used for spare parts.” That was simply a dishonest statement by Don Horsely, not the first.
Supervisor Don Horsley “Spare Parts Story”
This event so close to the first election of the Sheriff for San Mateo County in 25 years could confuse the residents into thinking Jackie Speier endorses Carlos Bolanos, that would be a bad thing, this event is just 3 days before ballots are mailed out.
It’s time for Honesty in San Mateo County

The San Mateo County Democratic Party (also known as the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee, or SMC DCC) held their Endorsement Meeting last night.
“It was a unanimous vote with a couple of abstentions.” “No endorsement passed in a landslide.” said Sabrina Brennan
This is a big deal for San Mateo County Voters who have not had a say in who their Sheriff is in the last 25 years. The Supervisors have made sure of that in the past and most recently when Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum and Adrienne Tissier Illegally Appointed Carlos Bolanos Sheriff July 12, 2016. This is a contested election between San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville and Carlos Bolanos. Voters can vote as early as May 8th with mail-in ballots and the official election date is June 5, 2018.
San Mateo County’s Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos finally answers questions, or does he?
By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil
The story promoted by Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos in April 2007 at a Press Conference where No Questions were allowed. They were briefly detained = handcuffed and released. It sounded like a Sportsman Fishing Show where they catch and release the little fish. If that were the truth, why would Carlos Bolanos refuse to answer any questions regarding the Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including children in the single family residence he was caught inside of, according to Las Vegas Metro Police Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes quotes in different news articles.
Now Candidate Carlos Bolanos has had 11 years to prepare for the residents to ask some questions that reporters have refused to ask. In Pacifica at Sharp Park Golf Course he was asked one question about Operation Dollhouse and he answered that this was not the proper place to discuss that subject or something close to that.
The Almanac Reporter Dave Boyce asked a question of Candidate Carlos Bolanos about Operation Dollhouse, and he refused to answer the question.
Half Moon Bay Review Reporter Carina Woudenberg asked a question of Candidate Carlos Bolanos about Operation Dollhouse. Instead of answering the question he relies on the false story promoted by the Sheriff from 11 years ago. “I don’t know that there is much to say about nothing that happened 11 years ago.”
That is the third time Carlos Bolanos has refused to answer a simple question that the residents have a right to know the truth about that night of April 21, 2007.
Candidate for Sheriff 2018 Mark Melville said in that same article:
“He actually lied about where he was.” “They found him inside the house.”
We think that should have been the Headline of the HMBR article.
This post might shed light on why Carlos Bolanos refuses to answer any questions about April 21, 2007. It is on the HMBR.

Here is what you don’t know.
There were four people in the limo that Munks and Bolanos took to the brothel at 3474 Eldon Street. Two of those Deputies went from Sergeant to Assistant Sheriff in a span of just a few years before retiring out. Their pay went from ~$130,000 to $220,000 per year in that short span of time.
Why did that limo become the most effective promotion tool in the history of the SMCSO?
Because not only was Munks in the bedroom and Bolanos near the front door when the raid happened, after being placed in handcuffs they both provided a fake ID to the LVMPD. When LVMPD could not identify them they took them downtown to holding.
While that was happening the other two Deputies who escaped the raid and one other female Lieutenant went to the Mandalay Bay to get Munk’s and Bolanos’s real ID before going to the station to bail them out. (Yes, we (and they) know who they are, just not saying here…)
Presenting a false ID in Nevada is a Class E Felony. When Munks and Bolanos provided a false ID hoping they would be let go they broke the law. They committed a felony. They were taken downtown, unlike the others caught in the sting, because no one knew who they were and their ID came back zero.
Conspiring to conceal a crime is a crime in California. Even a crime in Nevada. A crime everywhere.
Now you know why those two deputies in the limo and the Lt. who went to bail out Munks and Bolanos rocketed through the leadership structure of the SO until they retired after being third in command.
It’s the crime and the cover-up that should make any of the four horsemen and Bolanos ineligible to be a Sheriff or Deputy. If the County was less corrupt this would have been properly handled ten years ago. Instead County leaders, Including the DA and Sup Horsley looked the other way. They had to have heard the rumors, even if they didn’t know the details.
It is past time to stop looking the other way.
Hey reporter’s!! Ask why they used forged ID and what they did after that. Ask who knew about the concealing of the use of fake IDs and the following trip to the holding tank. Ask Karen Hughes for the details!!
If you want proof of the promotion chain look at the employment history and compensation for recent Assistant Sheriff’s and work backwards.
And look at the top right now. One of the five (“The Dish”) is sitting there in plain view.
She knows everything.
San Mateo County Supervisor Carole Groom does it again. She talks to the perp instead of the Whistleblower.
By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil
Good and Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula offers Carole Groom the data from the recently acquired CD-ROM from the FBI, she declines it and says she’ll talk to Carlos Bolanos. Why on earth would a representative of the residents of San Mateo County do that?

Carole Groom of District 2 Supervisor of San Mateo County called me over 4 weeks ago to tell me she voted not to appoint Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff in July 12, 2016, but now endorses him. I said why? Carole’s response was ” Carlos is doing a good job”. I said I would like to show you the FBI data that was sent to me on January 8, 2018. Carole’s response was I will talk to to Carlos, and I said I have the FBI data. This conversation was by her private phone 6 weeks ago.
The readers might recall that Samtrans Whistleblower Ling La was directed to contact Supervisor Carole Groom with her $2.5M FRAUD allegation, and Carole Groom went to the management of SamTrans instead of taking the FRAUD complaint. She later lied to an editor and reporter right in front of Mark De Paula. She then lied about the lie.
