Supervisor Don Horsley is Dishonest. It’s that simple.

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Don Horsley

Think about this when you read the Nice description below about children and San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies, This goes back to when Supervisor Don Horsley was Sheriff of San Mateo County and had a Deputy Mary Koziol R.I.P. who worked as Resource Officer at Garfield Elementary School K-8 in Menlo Park. Her partner reported her sleeping with a female student at that school to SMCSO Sgt. Al Cantera who reported it to Victoria O’Brian who reported it to Sheriff Don Horsley, The results he had a talk with her, she didn’t stop he promoted her to Sgt.

Ask Supervisor Don Horsley what actions he took as Sheriff when he learned she was having sex with one of the female students? Remember K-8

SAL was founded in 1997 by former Sheriff Don Horsley with the purpose of strengthening relationships between youth, deputies, and communities to aid in the intervention and prevention of juvenile delinquency in San Mateo County through positive, dynamic programs. The program was in North Fair Oaks and had a small presence on the coast, serving approximately 1,000 youth per year. In 2009, former Sheriff Greg Munks expanded the SAL program to 12 locations throughout the county, increased deputy support and established a community policing substation that was a permanent home for SAL programs. The program grew to serve approximately 3,500 youth per year.

Today, under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, the SAL program continues to thrive and is serving over 11,000 youth per year in programs, presentations and special events throughout San Mateo County. In light of events in 2015, President Obama called for law enforcements agencies to engage in community policing to build relationships with their communities. The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, thanks to our leadership, has been engaged in community policing practices for over 20 years and continues to be a progression organization that adapts to the needs of our communities.

Now S.A.L. is in the News again this time for Embezzlement of $500K-$800K. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says he expects the Attorney General of California to finish it’s Investigation within 3 weeks. When did the A.G. Office open it’s investigation?

The former Executive Director Barbara Bonilla was Escorted out of her office February 10, 2020 and placed on Administrative Leave. I wrote an article about it on February 28, 2020. She also was a top official with California PAL and National PAL.

Hello Don,
I’m doing an update of my S.A.L Executive Director Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave Story, that I wrote Feb 28, 2020. I was the only SMC Media to report it, Now I am updating it to include Embezzlement Allegations and others involved. I know you have known about this for almost 5 months.
Would you like to make any comment at this time, When did you first became aware of it, did you report it to the A.G.? 
Are you aware of the Sheriff’s Office doing an internal Investigation? Do you think that is appropriate considering who is involved?
Can you tell me what date Barbara Bonilla resigned? Her name is still on the website.


Thank You
Michael G. Stogner

Don Horsley chose not to answer any of my questions, He did make comments to HMBR reporter Libby Leyden, Horsley said “he was only aware that Bonilla was on administrative leave.”

I had to laugh when I read that because I would not have been able to write my article February 28, 2020 if it had not been for Supervisor Don Horsley talking about Embezzlement by Barbara Bonilla, and another individual that Don named which I will not name at this time.

The real story here is the hiding from the 750,000 SMC residents for 5 months an Embezzlement case. One of the main reasons to hide it is to make sure the guilty people are never charged. The coverup how many great corporations are involved with Sheriff Activities League. The money is stolen from the kids, how many prominent leaders in SMC knew for 5 months about the embezzlement and kept their mouths shout.

That is a Great Lesson to teach our children of San Mateo County.

Message about the program from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

“The Sheriff’s Activities League is an extraordinary program! I have seen the impact and difference that SAL has made for the youth of San Mateo County. The effective approach that SAL provides our youth has been instrumental in keeping the kids in our community safe while building positive relationships between law enforcement and our youth.

The relationship and interaction that a law enforcement agency has with the community is vital to maintaining public safety in building a strong community. SAL is a key program that provides our youth with the necessary skills for success. I am passionate about investing in our youth because they are the future of our community.”

Santa Monica to settle child sex abuse cases

City Council approves $42.6-million payout in suits alleging lewd acts with teenage boys by a police volunteer.

For decades, Eric Uller served as the Santa Monica Police Department’s technology wizard, overseeing street cameras, creating crime maps and advancing its computers. But many knew him better as an ever-present volunteer in the Police Activities League beginning in the 1980s, helping young boys in the predominantly Latino Pico area. He would give kids rides in his unmarked police car.

But two years ago, Los Angeles County Special Victims Unit detectives arrested Uller on suspicion of lewd acts with teenage boys. Uller died by suicide in November 2018 after being charged with molesting four boys. More victims came forward and the number rose to 23, with cases dating from 1989.

On Tuesday, the Santa Monica City Council agreed to pay those victims $42.6 million to resolve the ensuing sexual abuse lawsuits that were filed against the city. The settlement also resolves a claim by a woman that she was abused by another PAL volunteer.

A judge will decide how much each of Uller’s alleged victims will receive.

“These are lifelong neighbors and dear friends. To these men, thank you for being brave and coming forward, not only for yourself but for standing up for others,” Councilwoman Ana Maria Jara said after the vote. “Our community and this council walks with you on this journey toward healing and justice. Please know that your community will continue to grow stronger and bind us together with the purpose of ensuring this never happens again.”

Uller’s position with the city and his role as a volunteer with the PAL — a nonprofit operated by the city — gave him access to teenage boys. Authorities allege he molested them in his car, and sometimes under the guise of taking them for medical exams at his father’s medical office. He sexually assaulted one boy for years in the 1980s and 1990s, authorities alleged.

“The Police Department and city had repeated warnings and reports of his horrendous behavior,” said David Ring, one of several attorneys representing the victims. “Uller as authority figure preyed on the most vulnerable young Latino boys.”

Several former city employees told Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives investigating the allegations that they reported Uller’s misconduct to their bosses, and one even described him as being able to use a police car with the knowledge of top officials.

Uller’s former boss, retired Lt. Greg Slaughter, told detectives he witnessed Uller driving young boys “all over town” and reported it to his bosses. Slaughter also told detectives that an investigation launched after child pornography was found on a Police Department communications center screen “led to Eric Uller,” the report said.

The failure to take action against Uller earlier has spurred outrage in the community.

The investigation has also renewed an enduring question over how Santa Monica, a liberal bastion of wealth, treats its less-privileged residents.

School board member Oscar de la Torre, in an opinion piece in the Santa Monica Daily Press, accused the city of ignoring reports and rumors about Uller for years.
