I must admit I don’t think I had ever heard of James Brown, Wine Country Marines or San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management.

21-SM-014538-A | The People of the State of California vs. Aldon Jacarus Ramon Smith
This is another exciting “Those Who Matter” case that the “Fixer” Joshua Bentley is quietly moving through the San Mateo County Court system.
You will recall Aldon Smith was arrested on December 6, 2021 by the California Highway Patrol at Farm Hill Blvd and 280 where he crashed into a Recology Truck injuring the driver. This is not the first time he has been arrested for DUI, It’s been reported he has been arrested 5 times for DUI.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has never released his Booking Photo or produced a Press Release of the December 6, 2021 arrest. Why?
Attorney Joshua Bentley is doing an Excellent job in trying to keep those four prior DUI’s out of this case.

Remember The San Mateo County Superior Court is encouraging the Public to attend the Courtrooms in Person. That change went into effect November 22, 2021. I wouldn’t recommend that.
The two Candidates for Sheriff of San Mateo County and one Husband of a Candidate know James Brown really well.
You will recall James Brown the President of Wine Country Marines was given the PPE on or before 6:00 PM January 13, 2022. The Facebook page for WCM proves that. Also you will see photos of Candidate Sheriff Captain Christina Corpus and James Brown on that website.
Sheriff Captain Christina Corpus is married to Lt. John Kovach

San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocum are responsible for the Oversight of San Mateo County. They are not curious as to the name of the person at San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management who graciously donated thru the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.
It’s been 26 Days since ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes broke the story about the MORE than $10,000,000.00 of PPE left unprotected outside the San Mateo County Event Center. Note: January 13, 2022 @ 6:12 PM the story was on the air. That’s 12 minutes after James Brown FB post.
Who had the authority to give James Brown the PPE? At this moment 26 days later that person has not been identified by the Government. Why?
First lets look at the Department of Emergency Management, I did find it at the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. This is the same Sheriff’s Office that recently Investigated itself for the Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering criminal Investigation with the A.G. Office.
SMC Sheriff Lt. John Kovach was in charge of the Homeland Security Division until he suddenly retired in January 2022. I’ve asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos what was his last day on the job. no response.
This might be a good time for the Board of Supervisors to put this back on the Agenda and invite Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Lt. John Kovach, Captain Christina Corpus, James Brown, and Mike Callagy to attend and answer the simple question, WHO gave James Brown the PPE on or before January 13, 2022.
Also for those who don’t know ret. Sheriff Lt. John Kovach and Sheriff Captain Christina Corpus are Husband and Wife.
On Thursday January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes interviewed Supervisor David Canepa about the More than $10,000,000.00 of PPE left outside the San Mateo County Event Center for several months unprotected.
San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa told the I-Team, “It’s because of your investigation, because of your investigation, that we have to acknowledge that we made a mistake. And the public needs to know that a mistake was made.” Looks like it wasn’t a mistake, now what?
San Mateo County Event Center Manager DANA STOEHR: “It’s, it was fully taken care of exactly the way it should have been.”
Mike Callagy is San Mateo County Manager. He is trained how Not to answer a simple question.
DAN NOYES: “Can you give me an idea of the amount of money we’re talking?”
MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. There’s a lot of PPE out there.”
Mike Callagy told us he didn’t know about all that PPE that’s been deteriorating outside for months until I called. He immediately ordered county workers to bring the supplies back inside, to run an inventory and see how much of it is salvageable.
A source tells the I-Team a convoy of garbage trucks filled up with brand new PPE and took it to the dump, in the past two months — a massive waste of your tax dollars that the county promises won’t happen again.
Who ordered the “convoy of garbage trucks” What date or dates did that occur? What evidence is there that the trucks made it to the Dump.
These interviews took place on January 13, 2022. At 6:00 P.M. the same day James Brown of the Wine Country Marines announces on their Facebook page that San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management just gave him a boatload of PPE. That announcement was made 12 minutes before the ABC 7 I Team’s report was made public. That is Warp Speed in my opinion.
Stop any more of the PPE from leaving the SMC Convention Center right this minute.
This is the James Brown who was just given $10M of PPE
TMZ Sports was first to report his December 6, 2021 arrest by the CHP in Redwood City,
“Details surrounding the arrest are unclear.” Welcome to San Mateo County, That is the first of many RED FLAGS.
Aldon Smith might have been kicked off of several NFL TEAMS but he is on the “Those Who Matter” TEAM, in SMC. That is the Last Thing he needs.
His Defense Attorney Joshua Bentley is most likely on his cell phone speed dial. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe numbers are on Joshua Bentley’s speed dial.
TMZ reported “Details surrounding the arrest are unclear.” How is that possible in 2021. What could be unclear about an arrest that takes place around 2:30 PM and Booked in jail at 7:38 PM. Where was Aldon Smith for those 5 hours?
What date and time did San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provide the 760,000 residents with a Press/News Release of Aldon Smith’s ARREST for DUI BAC .288 which is over 3 times the legal limit? Sheriff Bolanos Never did provide that information, WHY?
In 2018 Aldon Smith was arrested for DUI with a BAC of .40 which is 5 times the legal limit, and that happened with him wearing a SCRAM device.
Why did San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe file this FELONY criminal case as a Misdemeanor? 21-SM-014538-A The People of the State of California vs. Aldon Jacarus Ramon Smith
The “Those Who Matter” TEAM also includes Superior Court of California County of San Mateo Judges.
November 22, 2021 the Court Public Access Telephone Service has been discontinued. The SMC Judges Invite you to attend in PERSON. I recommend any member of the public who is considering going into the 400 County Center Building, in Redwood City, California, First Google the word PANDEMIC.
This case is being heard at 9:00 AM in Courtroom 8B by the Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt.
Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt is the Judge that on July 2, 2018 GRANTED the San Mateo County District Attorney Office MOTION to DISMISS the ENTIRE Zainali Jaffer criminal case AFTER it had already had a Preliminary Hearing and evidence and testimony was heard and ALL CHARGES were approved.
Don’t expect this Felony Criminal Case to go much different, than the Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI case, the Zainali Jaffer Criminal Case, or the San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement & Money Laundering Criminal Case with Barbara Bonilla being the only person charged when there were others.
I’ve always questioned why she resigned from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office in May of 2020. At that time there was simply a corrupt Investigation by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the A.G. Office which should have been conducting it’s own Investigation.
San Mateo County News.com was the first News and Information service to report that Barbara Bonilla was on Administrative Leave as Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League (SAL).
Barbara Bonilla was charged by the State of California Attorney Generals Office with seven Felony counts. Why?
Let me remind the readers that “Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.” the same goes for Criminal Charges, Just because somebody is Criminally Charged doesn’t mean they are guilty. Look no further than Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez case NF433910A. His Criminal case has been going on for seven years, He hasn’t been convicted off one single crime.
In the Bonilla case she choose not to have a preliminary hearing, which means no evidence/witnesses like SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus, xSMCSO Jeffrey C. Kearnan, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, or Gigi Harrington testified. Therefore the public has no idea why the charges were brought in the first place.
On September 15, 2021 the State of California Attorney Generals Office offered Barbara Bonilla a plea deal where they would dismiss six of the Seven Felony Charges, No Jail Time, Probation, if she plead no contest to one Felony and paid $13,706.00 to the Sheriff Activities League, and completed 170 hours of public service.
Yesterday November 8, 2021, 54 days later the Honorable Judge Susan Greenberg granted a motion for Modification of Sentencing. The single Felony conviction has been reduced to a Misdemeanor, which can be expunged from the records in the near future.
Recap: Seven Felony Counts to One Misdemeanor in less than 1 year, that is pretty fast to disappear a case.
The People vs. Zain Jaffer case was done in less time.
How much money did San Mateo County Taxpayers invest in the Investigation, and State of California Taxpayers, for $13,706.00
That amount could have been prepaid debit cards from Target in San Mateo County Sheriff Patrol Vehicles or desk drawers.
Who benefited the most by getting Barbara Bonilla out of the Picture?
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Captain Christina Corpus, Captain Jeffery C. Kearnan and the State of California Attorney Generals Office, all thought it would be just fine to Investigate the San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League former Executive Director and others, for Embezzlement & Money Laundering. Early on retired SMCSO Captain Jefferey C. Kearnan sent an e-mail to Christina Corpus.
San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League has NEVER been Audited.
Jeffrey C. Kearnan e-mail “Per Gigi SAL has never been audited” We can not account for $232,084.51
Mark Melville Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 was asked if he was Sheriff would he have allowed the Sheriff’s Office to Investigate itself? Here is his response,
Mark D Melville <firstname.lastname@example.org>To:Michael Stogner Wed, Sep 22 at 8:16 PM
Mr. Stogner, If I was the Sheriff when the embezzlement issue was discovered which implicated Barbara Bonilla as the responsible person, I would not have had anyone from the Sheriff’s Office conduct said investigation. I would have placed Ms. Bonilla on administrative leave, hired an independent auditing firm to review all transactions of SAL for the previous three (3) years, and based on the findings, contacted the Attorney’s General Office to conduct an investigation to determine how, when, and how much money was missing, and to what extent Ms. Bonilla was involved. Once the investigation was completed, the appropriate charges would be immediately filed with the court and Ms. Bonilla would have been arrested for said crime(s), booked, and subsequently tried. At no time would I have had any employee of San Mateo County involved in this investigation. Mark——

Or would you have recognized the Conflict of Interest. Thank You Michael G. Stogner, San Mateo County News.com
Every San Mateo County Elected Official and their Staff are completely in support of the Conflict of Interest Criminal Investigation of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League. How do I know this? It’s simple, just Google it.
Not one of San Mateo County Elected Officials or Candidates in the Election just nine months away have said one word about it, except Mark Melville.
Reminder: San Mateo County News.com was the first 2/28/2020 News and Information source for the residents of SMC to report that Executive Director of the Sheriff’s Activity League, Barbara Bonilla was on Administrative Leave.
Any reasonable person would know that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the last Law Enforcement agency that should be investigating itself. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and the Attorney General’s Office Teamed up right from the beginning, you had to know what the results were going to be.
To Captain Christina Corpus and Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan Date: Mon, May 11, 2020 at 10:28 AM Subject: Re: Target Gift Cards Thanks Christina. Now this is more than just BB ordering her staff around. This is mismanagement of cash – and now it is not just BB.
Note: BB is Barbara Bonilla and now it is not just Barbara Bonilla, also Gift Cards are a great way to Launder Money.
Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.
Just because somebody is Criminally Charged with something, doesn’t mean they are Guilty. Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal Case is a Perfect Example of that. Remember he was charged with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member, whatever happened to those charges? Just ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.
San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.
Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.
Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.
Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.
I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.
I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.
One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.
If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.
Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.
Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.
Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.
