San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe hasn’t satisfied Zain Jaffer.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe is talking more about the Zain Jaffer former Vungle executive found straddling his 3 year old son while fully naked in the backyard of his Hillsborough home at 4:00AM. Now 17 days after the entire case was dismissed without a preliminary hearing or any witnesses testifying under oath, Mr. Wagstaffe feels he has not done enough to satisfy Mr. Jaffer. Here is his latest PR statement to SFGATE, he did not send this to me co-owner of San Mateo County News. Note: Mr. Wagstaffe has refused to identify the alleged prescription medications that caused Mr. Jaffer to be Not Conscious while assaulting several people, resulting in 7 F’s & 1M charge. The DA’s Office quickly eliminated one felony charge of Attempted Murder.

The Charges that remained up until July 2, 2018:

Charge #1 Attempted Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with a Child 10 years of age or younger. PC 664.288.7(b) Felony

Charge #2 Forcible Lewd Act Upon Child, PC288 (b) Felony

Charge #3 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #4 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #5 Child Abuse, PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge #6 Child Abuse PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge # 7 Battery Upon a Peace Officer & Designated Person, PC 243 (b) Misdemeanor

SFGATE 7/19/2018

EDITOR’S NOTE: After the publication of this story, officials at the San Mateo County district attorney’s office said they wanted to clarify that “we do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

The FDA should issue a National Warning if the above statement is true.

Question to think about, Why would the District Attorney’s Office feel the need or obligation to clarify anything for Mr. Jaffer? He was facing life in prison if found guilty of the 7 felony counts. Steve Wagstaffe solved that for him.

Question? Steve Wagstaffe says “we do not believe.” That is why we have Juries, what did the evidence prove? If you didn’t believe it why did you charge him in the first place?

What could have possibly happened from October 15, 2017 to July 2, 2018 to cause this entire criminal case to simply disappear? And now 17 days later Steve Wagstaffe feels some pressure to make more public comments. What would cause that?

What about the 2 CHILDREN?

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy.

Yesterday July 5, 2018 the Board of Supervisors announced Mike Callagy is the next County Manager.

Here are his qualifications.

Callagy joined San Mateo County as one of three deputy county managers in 2013 after a 29-year career with the San Mateo Police Department where he ran day-to-day operations and retired as the deputy chief. In 2016, he was named assistant county manager. He holds a law degree from Santa Clara University, a Bachelor of Arts and master’s degree in public administration from the College of Notre Dame and a master’s degree in homeland defense and security from the Naval Postgraduate School.

San Mateo County Leaders always say this: “The Board selected Callagy after a nationwide recruitment and several rounds of interviews.”

John Maltbie’s 2017 pay & benefit total compensation was $597,524.82

You can be sure Mr. Callagy’s will be close to that plus remember he is retired police officer with 29 years so he will be close to $700,000 per year as a double dipper.

San Mateo County Manager Position is a very powerful position (purse strings) and Clerk to the Supervisors (sets the Agenda Items like #7 on July 12, 2016), similar to the Sheriff, and the District Attorney Office. The difference being the public is responsible for voting on the Sheriff and District Attorney.

Mike Callagy “I am grateful for the opportunity to lead this great organization with a Board of Supervisors that is dedicated to seeing its constituents thrive and that supports our committed County employees who are making positive impacts to all who live, work and visit here,”  That sounds like a Chamber of Commerce and the San Mateo Daily Journal motto.

Question for the residents of San Mateo County,

How many of you knew about the Nationwide Recruitment effort to fill the County Manager Position? How many public meetings were held? How many members of the public made comment?

Results Certified for the June 5, 2018 Statewide Direct Primary Election

Mark Church has certified the June 5, 2018 Election results for San Mateo County.

The Sheriff Office race was an exciting one with three candidates. Mark Melville and Heinz Puschendorf both San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies and Carlos Bolanos the illegally appointed Sheriff who started his campaign over three years ago to make sure no deputy would run against him. That didn’t happen. Mark Melville told several editors including Jon Mays of the San Mateo Daily Journal in May that he watched a 3 minute video of Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula’s presentation to the Board of Supervisors on March 13, 2018. He described it as brilliant and clearly stated based on that presentation it proved that Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos were liars. Heinz Puschendorf was a last minute write in candidate told several reporters including Dave Boyce that in 2007 when he was the President of the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA he was ordered by UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos not to talk about or mention the FBI Human Trafficking Sting Operation Dollhouse where he was caught and detained as a customer on April 21, 2007.

Melville and Heinz were very brave to offer their services to the residents of San Mateo County. Look no further than the last write in candidate former deputy Juan P. Lopez.

Imagine what the outcome of this election would have been had Jon Mays printed the brave statement Mark Melville made in May. He and Jerry Lee didn’t think it was newsworthy, 83,500 readers didn’t know about a candidate deputy calling his boss a liar.

That is a big deal. Another big deal is that 100 voters spelled Heinz Puschendorf correctly.

To the 52,996 voters for Mark Melville, I recommend you send him your e-mail addresses so that he can keep you informed if anything bad should happen to him. Same for Mr. Puschendorf. Note Mark Melville has not conceded yet, with close to 30,000 votes in Carlos Bolanos favor 81,032.

In another race between Nancy Magee and Gary Waddell for Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Waddell conceded right away with less than 1% difference.

Magee 65,683 Waddell 64,485

For the record I believe SMC Sheriff Deputies Heinz Puschendorf and Mark Melville.

A Those Who Matter case. Zain Jaffer all charges dismissed by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Why?

This would be a perfect case to be reviewed by a Citizen’s Oversight Committee.

What did CPS do to protect those two children? Though District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said the children — who suffered cuts and bruises but no fractures — were allegedly taken into custody by Child Protective Services immediately after the incident, he said their current location is not known by his office.

San Mateo County has a Domestic Violence Protocol signed by all Police Departments was it followed?

Zainali Jaffer case 17NF012415A was arrested in the backyard of his home in Hillsborough October 15, 2017 at 4AM. Police found him fully naked straddling his 3 year old son pressing his face into his genitals. He was charged with a lewd act ( oral copulation) on one of his children, child abuse and battery on a police officer and emergency personnel. His who was also assaulted father called the police.

Yesterday at the request of Steve Wagstaffe San Mateo County’s District Attorney, Hon. Judge Stephanie Garrett (a former SMCDA prosecutor) granted the motion to dismiss all charges. I don’t think the Hon. Judge Donald Ayoob would have granted this motion.

DDA Sharon K. Cho 229296 scho@smcgov.org told the court.

“The acts that were charged we would say occurred.” “But that sort of misses the point.” “Because legally we have to ask ourselves what was it that caused those acts, given the information given to us? “We just can’t prove that what resulted was voluntary intoxication versus this was someone suffering from a mental breakdown and some kind of psychosis.”

Is that really true? What were the results from the blood test that morning?

What happened? The DA had the evidence in October 2017 to charge Mr. Jaffer. What changed from that day to yesterday?

The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors should verify that the public’s interest was served in this case especially since it is closed.

How did all of those charges simply get dismissed? The answer is simple for “Those Who Matter”. The Legal Process was abused, skipped, non existent. Who did this, Steve Wagstaffe and his TEAM. They became the Judge and Jury in this case.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said a team from his office met with Jaffer’s defense counsel for several hours to hear the evidence they planned to use in his defense. Though prosecutors initially thought Jaffer may have been under the influence of LSD, they learned an analysis of the combined effects of medications he was on had not been done and had resulted in behavior of which he was not conscious. Says who?

Wagstaffe said prosecutors including Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti, reviewed the evidence in the case, including that presented by police, and decided to dismiss all charges. If this were True it seems like a National Warning would be in order.

Mr. Jaffer was arrested on Oct. 15 at 4AM after his father called police and told them that Jaffer was in the backyard of their home on the 1000 block of Lancaster Road in Hillsborough, abusing his 3-year-old son.

Police found Jaffer in the backyard completely naked, straddling his son, who was crying, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

The DA said that when police arrived, they saw him touching the child inappropriately. Police commanded Jaffer to stop assaulting his child, but he didn’t, and instead began choking the child with his legs around the child’s neck, according to Wagstaffe.

Zain Jaffer’s attorneys are Daniel Olmos of Nolan, Barton, Bradford, Olmos LLP of Palo Alto, and Patrick E. Clancy of Pleasant Hill.

San Mateo County’s 2018-19 Property Assessment Roll Reaches Record High after Seventh Consecutive Year of Growth

Roll Value Increases by 8% to $222.5 billion

(Redwood City, CA) San Mateo County Assessor Mark Church today announced the county’s Property Assessment Roll increased year-over-year by $16.5 billion, or 8.03%, to a record high of over $222.5 billion in assessed value, again setting a new milestone for the county.

“2017 marked another year of substantial roll growth for San Mateo County,” said Church.  “The combined assessment roll has increased nearly 60% in the last eight years alone.  This is the seventh consecutive year in which a new historical high has been set.”

“Commercial construction, major property transfers, and a continued strong residential market have all contributed to the roll’s significant increase,” Church added.  “With the lowest unemployment rate in the state and continued growth of the labor force, San Mateo County’s local economy is amongst the strongest in the nation.”

San Mateo County has the lowest unemployment rate in the state for the fourth consecutive year, at 1.9%, according to the California Employment Development Department.

“Our strong job market and economic growth continue to push the demand higher for housing and commercial space,” said Church.  “As has been the case for several years now, the high demand and the inventory shortage in every sector of real estate, are the driving forces behind escalating real estate values and rents throughout the county, resulting in another record-breaking assessment roll for the county.”

The 2018-19 Property Assessment Roll reflects consistent growth throughout the County.  Total assessed values increased in all 20 cities and unincorporated areas, with increases ranging from 3.98% to as high as 11.4%.  The County’s unincorporated areas, which include San Francisco International Airport (SFO), experienced a growth rate of 6.06%.

 

The top 5 cities in percentage growth are:

·       East Palo Alto (+11.40%)

·       Daly City (+11.33%)

·       South San Francisco (+11.13%)

·       Menlo Park (+11.06%)

·       Brisbane (+10.78%)

The shared property tax funding base is approximately 1% of the county’s Property Assessment Roll and will thus increase to $2.22 billion.  Approximately 45% of revenue is allocated to schools within the county, 25% to the County, 18% to cities, 10% to special districts, and 2% to former redevelopment agencies.  “The county’s share will be 25%, or approximately $556 million, an increase of $41 million over last year,” noted Church.

The Property Assessment Roll is the assessed value of all properties as of January 1 each year, and reflects changes in ownership, new construction, value declines, and value restorations from the previous January 1.  The Property Assessment Roll is composed of two sections, the Secured Roll and the Unsecured Roll.  When combined, the two sections are referred to as the Combined Roll.

 

SECURED ROLL

The Secured Roll represents nearly 95% of the total Assessment Roll and includes 221,355 commercial and residential real properties.  This year, the Secured Roll increased to $211 billion, an increase of over $16 billion, or 8.2% more than 2017-18, reflecting continued economic growth in the county.

The growth of the San Mateo County Secured Roll is primarily due to the following factors:

·       Increased Values in the Local Real Estate Market.  Sales and changes in ownership totaled $7.2 billion, which is 45% of this year’s Secured Roll increase.

The median price of an existing single-family home in San Mateo County was $1,770,000 as of April 2018, according to the California Association of Realtors.  This is the highest median home price in the state and is an increase of 18% over the previous year, topping San Francisco County for the second consecutive year.

·       New Commercial Development.  Major commercial projects in the county, consisting of 80,000 square feet or more, accounted for more than 1.1 million square feet of new development coming to market in fiscal year 2017- 2018.  Another 18.7 million square feet are under construction, 9.4 million square feet have planning approval, and 28.8 million square feet are under review.  In all, 56.9 million square feet of new construction remain to be built.  Approximately 5.5 million square feet of new construction have been completed in the last three years.

Top 5 Cities for New Commercial Development

 

The following cities have the greatest amount of square footage of new commercial development, consisting of projects that are 80,000 square feet or more, that are either pending, approved, or under construction:

·       Redwood City – 12.9 million square feet

·       Menlo Park –  9.7 million square feet

·       South San Francisco –  8.8 million square feet

·       Brisbane –  8 million square feet

·       San Mateo – 5 million square feet

Growth in the technology and life science sectors continues to drive the demand in office, housing, hotel and retail.  Completed projects include the Marriot Springhill Suites in Belmont, Serramonte Center Phase I in Daly City, Gellert Market Place in Daly City, Belle Haven affordable housing and Greystar Haven apartments in Menlo Park, One Marina Hotel in Foster City, The Cove Hotel Marriot in South San Francisco, and Bay Meadows Station 4 in San Mateo.

Office development owned and leased by Facebook was the largest driver of increased assessment in Menlo Park, accounting for over $700 Million of new construction. These and other projects and transfers helped drive a significant increase in the combined roll value in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto.

In the north-county areas, South San Francisco, Brisbane, and Daly City have all seen substantial increases due, in part, to construction of life science projects such as The Cove, and expansions by Genentech and Prologis.

·       Restoration of Assessed Value: Proposition 8/Decline in Value Program.  The Proposition 8/Decline in Value Program provides property tax relief to property owners when the market value of a property falls below its assessed value.  The number of residential properties qualifying for the Proposition 8/Decline in Value Program has dropped significantly from 34,700 properties in FY 2011-12 to 488 properties in FY 2017-18.  On the commercial side, only 53 properties remain in the program from a high of 604 properties in FY 2012-13.

Over the next few days, approximately 2,088 property owners enrolled in the program will be mailed their 2018-19 Assessed Value Notices, with about 787 being fully restored to their factored base-year (Prop 13) values.

·       Annual Inflation Factor.  Proposition 13, which governs property taxation in California, ties the annual inflation factor to the California Consumer Price Index (CCPI) issued by the California Industrial Relations Board and limits annual inflation increases to no more than 2%.  This year an annual inflation factor of 2% was applied to the 2017-18 assessed value of all real property that did not have a change in ownership or any new construction during 2017.

 

Foreclosures

There were 55 Trustee’s Deeds recorded in calendar year 2017, a 36% decrease from the 86 recorded in 2016.  Notice of Defaults decreased 11% from 524 in 2016 to 465 in 2017, continuing the downward trend in defaults since the high of 5,058 in 2009.

“Foreclosure activities continued to decline, another important indicator of the strength of the current market,” said Church.

 

UNSECURED ROLL

The Unsecured Roll comprises approximately 5% of the Property Assessment Roll and includes the valuations of business/personal property and possessory interests (leased government property).  This year, the Unsecured Roll increased to $11.4 billion in assessed value, an increase of more than $546 million or 5.05% more than 2016-17.  Most of the Unsecured Roll is personal property, which typically depreciates and is not limited to an inflationary value increase, as is real property on the Secured Roll.

PROPOSITION 13 – 40TH ANNIVERSARY

Church noted that 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the passage of Proposition 13 in 1978.  Proposition 13 changed California real property assessment from a system based on “current fair market value” to one based on “transaction value,” factored annually for inflation.  It was a reaction, in part, to the perception that elderly people were losing their homes due to rapidly increasing property taxes.

“Prop 13 is still controversial after 40 years and has seen many challenges, including recent proposals to split the roll and assess commercial and residential properties differently,” said Church.  “Despite the growth limitations embodied in Prop 13, it is interesting to note that this year’s roll increase of $16.5 billion is larger than the entire assessment roll of $14.8 billion in 1978 when Prop 13 was passed,” he added.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy, Victim and Whistleblower Heinz Puschendorf.

San Mateo County Family Court is stressful enough without the illegal orders from Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos to have his Deputies interfere with a parent while in the courtroom. I can relate because in 2002 Sherif Don Horsley and UnderSheriff Greg Munks did the exact same thing to me. Had two deputies detain me and force me to leave the Family Law Court where I had a hearing. This is how the Thugs do it. Michael G. Stogner

Press Release

My name is Heinz Puschendorf- I am a 21-year veteran Deputy Sheriff of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. I was a long time Member and Representative of the San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association- being the last Past- President of the Association 2006-2008.

I am also a write-in candidate for Sheriff of San Mateo County- June 5, 2018 election.

I releasing this information about YET another series of Aggressive Bullying and multiple corrupt actions that I’ve personally experienced, as well as in representing hundreds of past/current Sheriff’s Office Employees (as recent as 2014) and/or even representing myself, which has forced me to whistle-blow Dozens of times in these past years

My message TODAY is very plain and clearly:  The San Mateo County Management structure which encompasses, but is not limited to: The Sheriff’s Office, the Human Resources Department, The District Attorney’s Office and the Board of Supervisors have all worked cooperatively to violate their Oaths of Service by harassing, defrauding employees and undermining anybody that would be able to damage the County’s Executive Management structure.

The incident I am describing today is yet another set of deeds that begins from the top (as orders being passed down through the chain of command) with the current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, down to his Undersheriff Ed Wood, then through all of the Sheriff’s Office Management team (Assistant Sheriff’s, Captains. Lieutenants and usually ending at the rank of sergeant against line level staff. Alas, Frequently, over the past ten years, there has been Questionable Motives imposed by the Deputy Sheriff’s Association Executive Management (Mostly by the Current President) who has fallen directly in line with Carlos Bolanos, which has helped to foster, already Hostile situations, in which they can defame, defraud or embarrass individuals. Those actions have included NOT properly Representing Turmoiled Employees being pressed with arrest and/or threatened with severe punitive actions. I have knowledge of this, because, since 2008 I have assisted in filling that VOID for Employees. The Union is aware of incidents and will also just take a PASSIVE Aggressive approach to “PICK and CHOOSE” who they will defend, with the Current President making outlandish statements in the past that he “IS NOT Accountable as President to ANY Members in the Union Membership,” Although he and the Executive Board (his cronies) live “High on the Hog” from OUR Union Dues.

My current incident This past Friday, May 25, 2018 in which, under orders of Carlos Bolanos and Undersheriff Ed Wood, a Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s abused their authority, restricted my freedom/ability to voluntarily leave (I was then OFFICIALLY under arrest, not free to leave, which then led to not properly releasing me through legal process), assaulting me, harassing and threatening me, while I was awaiting the beginning of my Family Court case. Then the subsequent series of NON-actions by all of San Mateo County’s pre-ordained utilities to protect employees, whistleblowers and/or individuals who want to report misdeed, misconduct and an overall lack of really trying to find the truth of complaints:

At 900 am, I tried entering the Redwood City Courthouse building through the employee entrance, which is located on the North-side, MAIN Public Entrance, by using my Sheriff’s Office issued access card. I tried at least a dozen times (swiping my card) to enter, BUT I was denied entry. I thought it was strange as I saw others before and after me enter via the same access door (so my card should have worked as it has in my 20+ years of service).

Over the past 4 years I have been working through Disability from an on-Duty injury. And I have always entered through these public access doors. I followed proper protocol and identified myself and advised I DID NOT have any weapons to declare. I spoke to several staff members and a sergeant (later involved in this incident), as I was going to Courtroom C on the 7th Floor, where I sat with my attorney, awaiting the start of my Family Law Court case.

At 10:00 am, a Sergeant (whom I had spoken with earlier in the morning upon entering building) approached me and said I “Should step outside the Courtroom, into the hallway” because he had “something to tell me.” I told the Sergeant My Court case was next and we could speak after I was done. The Sergeant insisted I go out, so I told my Attorney that I would return shortly, after speaking to My Sergeant in the Hallway, so my case wouldn’t get delayed.

I followed my Sergeant out of the courtroom, and as I got through the door and on the railed 3-foot-wide ramp exit (which creates a fenced in feeling from the doorway), I was besieged and surrounded by Sheriff’s armed/uniformed staff (2 sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s). I immediately became scared and felt threatened since they all in unison began to speak, push and close the space around me.

I asked the Sergeants what was wrong and they said I “illegally entered the building, NOT being an employee” and I “should not have by-passed the security checkpoint”- to which I responded “I’m an employee, although injured and being defrauded of my legal Worker’s comp rights at the Direction and orders of Sheriff Bolanos and Human Resources. BUT I entered and conducted myself legally and appropriately, reminding them ALL I had at one time or another trained each of them, as well as I have been a Sheriff’s Employee longer than ANY of them.

In Fact, I am still listed as a full-time employee on non-paid status (which actually is a non-existent status), which was just recently published in a local news story in the past week. So, I told them I wanted to go back in to the Court & all (uniform staff mentioned) stopped me by grabbing my clothes and/or physically using their bodies so I could not move or leave and told me “YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK IN.”

During this entire event I was Loud, verbally, had my hands/palms raised and open to show I was not a threat and to be sure I was not misunderstood. BUT this also served as another way for the entire 7th floor to hear, then see and by coming out into the hallway, know what was happening.

I then wanted to know under what authority they were detaining me and they all told me it was a standing order and that if I wasn’t so “mentally unstable and violent” that BECAUSE of their concern for the safety of the judge, the courtroom and the public, I’d be “handcuffed and arrested” forcibly missing Family Court and I “would have lots of other bad things happen… so just relax or else.”

I then said I wanted to speak with the Transportation/Court security Lieutenant, when he spoke up (in plain clothes a few feet away on the other side of the railing, but through staff told Me again I was illegally inside of the building and I was going to be arrested as a danger since I was “unstable.”

I then explained “I am an employee” and they all became more aggressive towards me as the Lt also got in my face, then in a threatening tone said “The Sheriff said it’s a standing order and its posted outside the entrance.” The Lieutenant then told me that if I didn’t comply he’d have me arrested.

We bantered back and forth for another several minutes, when I told all of them that I don’t understand why they’d be picking on me, because I know all the rules we operate under and even at one time or another had trained them all and that they were illegally detaining me.

I then demanded to speak with the Lt’s immediate boss (Captain), but he told me there wasn’t one in. I then demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (one of the 3), But the Lt told they were also not in today.

I was being continuously pushed and prodded by the staff and in an attempt to get me to fight with them several times and all of them continued using their bodies to keep me from leaving, re-entering the courtroom or just being able to leave for a total of at least 15 minutes.

I then specifically asked about Undersheriff Woods and Sheriff Bolanos and the Lt told me don’t worry they’re aware, “BUT you violated the law, because you are NOT an employee to enter that way.”

So, after several more minutes of arguing I then advised them that I would go back to court and we could address their inappropriate actions which are ILEGAL and I was going to file complaints against them: Lt Allen said something to the effect of “Well it won’t go anywhere, except ad for you in all ways so I’m not worried.”

Several more minutes of our arguing and the Staff’s pushing, prodding of me when (someone from inside of Courtroom 7C opened the door so I was then able to scoot past and away from my Aggressors, pushing us out of the way. Although I was told I could not leave or enter my courtroom- I did so in an attempt to get protection.

I was then followed in by one of the Sergeants and he sat behind me in the courtroom as My case was called. After My hearing the Sergeant followed me over the next 30 plus minutes staying near me as I exited the courtroom (with my attorney) and followed (in close proximity behind) me while in the courthouse, until I went down to the 3rd Floor – Sheriff’s Administrative office to report the incident and file complaints.

While at the Sheriff’s Admin Office I WAS again met with and given a cold reception by another Lt (temporary -Services/Internal Affairs commander). This Lt then tried to brush off the incident until I demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (since the previous Lt advised me the Undersheriff & Sheriff were a party directing the actions in this matter).

Unfortunately, this was not the first time I have whistle-blown. And in just a short time this incident was again flowing the same dysfunctional and repetitive path of so many other past cases, which were SQUASHED.

So, I again, filed complaints/crimes and wrongdoing: according to ALL policies, Orders, Contracts and legal processes: going to the Sheriff’s Office, to Human Resources, to the District Attorney’s Office and the Union.

As of Today, the past practices of trying to let a complaint fall dead to the wayside by NON-Action is why  I am taking this opportunity to Expose these ILEGAL actions, in hopes that the Media, Other Local/State/Federal Elected Officials, Residents and Voters of San Mateo County will take action, DEMAND the immediate resignation and/or follow up so as to administer Any/All other Appropriate Actions/Punishment which should be taken, to assure this type of Abuse does not happen again and that it IS NOT going to be tolerated.

There is plenty of evidence to Prove ALL my Allegations for this particular incident and My greatest HOPE is that ALL of the PAST and/or Previous Employees and staff that have been wronged will also stand up and speak out!

This has been yet another series of BULLYING and abuse of Powers that has been commonplace in Our Sheriff’s Office for Years. These actions are just like the other illegal actions by these same parties to falsely harass Juan Lopez in 2014. Juan Lopez was a write in candidate and he was fired, harassed and wrongfully prosecuted for A LONG LIST of Falsified Charges, which now HAS the Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe liable for their parts in False Charges being presented to the San Mateo Grand Jury. There is A FEDERAL Lawsuit recently filed for these allegations. I am going to be the next case against All of the same people, with an almost exact duplicated set of FALSIFIED Details.

Because I am a Write in candidate for Sheriff and opposing – not Just Carlos Bolanos, but all the other INCUMBENTS who portray the same corrupt, perverted, evil and overall criminal actions by MOST of those he has promoted and surrounded himself with at the Executive Management Administration and are also currently running for Re-election this June 5th.

I have been the whistleblower of several of the most recent incidents that have transpired, as well as many past criminal/illegal activities by Various San Mateo County Officials and Officers/Staff. This has also included my Exposing that (past Sheriff’s) Greg Munks and Don Horsley along with multiple others (including Myself) know that CARLOS BOLANOS and GREG MUNKS have LIED COMPLETELY about the 2007 Las Vegas OPERATION DOLLHOUSE Underaged SEX Slave Brothel Arrest/Detention.

My Criticism has also extended to ALL of San Mateo County:

Ø the Board of Supervisors (From at least 2007 Until and through NOW- Which includes Jerry Hill, Mark Church, Don Horsley and Rich Gordon)

Ø The District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe

Ø The County Managers (Maltbie and Bosch)

Ø Human Resources (Specifically Faiza Steele)

Ø The San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association (Mainly Current President, who was also aware of the Details, Information and evidence I uncovered)

Ø Elected Public Officials (Feinstein, Pelosi, Eshoo, Jerry Hill, Rich Gordon- to name JUST a few)

ALL of these Individuals have Culpability and are Directly connected to working on keeping Me and ANY/ALL others who know what happened (as well as with other violations) to be suppressed, Harassed and Ordered to NEVER Mention the LAS VEGAS Brothel EVER AGAIN!!! OR the Person who does speak out, they would BE DRONED OUT of the Sheriff’s Office and Fired using any and/or ALL Means Necessary to GET RID of THEM!!!

At the end of the Bolanos and the third Sheriff’s Candidate Mark Melville, Debacle – I became infuriated seeing Carlos Bolanos being so smug, with HIS Entire Administration sitting literally in front of Melville (in an intimidating presence), then there were 3 Executive Management Members and Carlos Bolanos himself approached me (spitefully, knowing I was disabled and being defrauded of ALL my Legal Rights), they each asked me HOW MY RETIREMENT WAS…. I was upset and loudly (with several witnesses) told them What Jackelopes they were and THAT I AM STILL BEING DEFRAUDED of my PAY.

Carlos Bolanos then told me he would check on things, BUT HIS understanding was that I ONLY Had to SIGN a PARTICULAR

Piece of PAPER (NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT). I then asked him if he could expedite things so I could retire and get paid, since I have not been paid in OVER A YEAR. Carlos B. said he would and, that he’d call me the next morning. At about 10:00am I had not received a call from Bolanos, so I tried calling him, but he never did. SO, I immediately went to the Elections Office to file my paperwork.

 #VOTENONINCUMBENT             #VOTECHANGE

My platform is FOR REFORM, which is Hard enough on its own, BUT with these Historical types of Coercion, My Attempting to reverse all the other Frauds being committed by and for the Sheriff’s Office (Supported by ALL Other County Admin Heads) is insurmountable Alone.

It will take All of San Mateo County (MEDIA, Politicians, Residents and ESPECIALLY VOTERS) to come together and force these individuals out and CHANGE the entire disposition and demeaner of Corrupted individuals and/or system. These Actions in Criminal Investigations would be Cause for INDICTMENTs under the RICO (or Criminal Enterprise/Syndicate) Act. NOT to mention a series of Brown Act Violations as well (for the ELECTED individuals).

I have attempted to CONTACT ALL Sources RECENTLY, BUT Before My Incident. SO, I hope Others (Politicians, Voters, the General Public and/or the FBI) will NOW take serious ACTION.

I live in an extreme state of fear, Just like Many other  of the Hundreds to Thousands  of Employees/Ex-Employees) awaiting the inevitable FINAL series of predictable Maneuvers or BLOWS by the County/Sheriff’s Office to next destroy an individual’s credibility with pure lies and search warrants, OR as Bolanos supporters have recently done, creating a hostile web-site and using Web to Cell phone technologies to negatively interact and push their PRO-Bolanos tactics, BLASTING ANY/ALL opponents in this Election.

It’s NOT Too Late to FIX, Please #standupspeakout LET Them Know, that this is NOT acceptable behavior and that these evil/criminal processes WON’T be tolerated.

Only YOU can Stop and Fix This.

Thank you respectfully,

Heinz Puschendorf

It’s time for Equal Justice for everyone in San Mateo County, including “Those Who Matter.”

Please join us July 26, 2018 at 9:00 AM in San Mateo County Superior Court for former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez court appearance where the Hon. Judge Forcum will rule on this filing. Think about it Corrupt from day one, almost 4 years trying to ruin a good man, his family and friends.

Why hasn’t San Mateo County Sheriff Detective Andrew Armando been investigated outside of San Mateo County yet? Why no media coverage of this Motion filed with the court on May 1, 2018 in the Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case stated, “Detective Armando Perjuriously alleged that Mr. Lopez placed a telephone call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.”

Det. Armando is the guy who made the suspicious phone call himself. He lied to  Judge George A. Miram to get the Search Warrant. That is a Felony.

How is he (Andrew Armando) still employed by San Mateo County? Why has he not been arrested and charged?

San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd testified March 26, 2018 that he opened his own investigation of Juan P. Lopez based on the cell phone data SMCSO Detective Armando presented to him. ” My investigation began as a result of receiving some cellular telephone records provided by Detective Andrew Armando of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office who requested my assistance in analyzing those records for his own investigation.”

Lopez Filing May 1, 2018

The reason we have included the article below is simple. If the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office are willing to falsify affidavits to the Judges to frame one of their own former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, What makes you think they wouldn’t do the same for the people in the article below.

Remember 80 Search Warrants. Time for an Audit.

Four charged with perjury in ‘Operation Sunny Day’ cases

District attorney: mother, girlfriend and friends of alleged gang members lied during grand jury testimonies

Four people who testified in cases relating to the San Mateo County District Attorney Office’s “Operation Sunny Day” case, under which 16 alleged members of three East Palo Alto gangs were arrested for a string of violent crimes, were arraigned this week on perjury charges, according to the district attorney’s office.

One of the four charged is an East Palo Alto resident and mother of defendant Miguel Rivera, who has been charged with the October 2012 murder of 21-year-old Christopher Baker in East Palo Alto. According to the district attorney’s office, Betty Jo Rivera, 52, provided a false alibi for her son to the police and then lied about the false alibi and alleged cover-up efforts to the grand jury. She was arraigned on Monday, Aug. 17, and her bail has been set at $500,000.

The district attorney’s office has also charged Joel Santana, 20, of East Palo Alto for stating during the grand jury proceedings that he did not know and had no contact with defendant Tyrone Love-Lopez. Love-Lopez has been charged with the killing of 21-year-old Lamont Coleman in East Palo Alto on Jan. 26, 2013. An investigation revealed cell-phone communication between the two men before and after Coleman was murdered. Santana also had Love-Lopez’s contact information in his cell phone, the district attorney said.

Santana pleaded not guilty and has a bail of $100,000.

Thirty-nine-year-old Germina Lapria Sturns of Hayward, the girlfriend of defendant Raymond Bradford, was arraigned Monday for allegedly lying several times during her grand jury testimony about her knowledge of Bradford and guns that he owned, the district attorney said. She also allegedly violated a court order not to discuss her testimony with anyone by visiting Bradford in jail in the days following and talking to him about it.

Sturns also pleaded not guilty. His bail was set at $125,000.

On Tuesday, 19-year-old Victor Manuel Galvez of Redwood City was arraigned after testifying at the grand jury proceedings that he was not a gang member and had no friendship with or knowledge of any of those convicted as part of the county’s “Operation Sunny Day” prosecution, according to the district attorney’s office. He also denied ever being on Sacramento Street in East Palo Alto — an area associated with the “Sac Street” gang. Police wire taps recorded Galvez talking on a cell phone to several “Sunny Day” gang members, and police also found photographs of him standing on Sacramento Street, according to the district attorney.

Galvez did not enter a plea Tuesday. His bail was set at $200,000.

All four charged with perjury remain in custody and will next appear in court on Aug. 26.

The grand jury investigation that resulted in the 16 arrests began in early January and took two months. The indictments were announced in late March. The alleged gang members are being blamed for a string of violent crimes that stretched from East Palo Alto to San Francisco, starting in September 2012 and continuing through December 2013.

Dubbed “Operation Sunny Day” after the code the persons arrested allegedly used to signify when a murder was successfully carried out, the 18-month-long investigation is the most massive case prosecuted by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office in its history, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said at the time of the announcement.

Fourteen defendants appeared in court to enter their pleas in mid-June. Three of them — Roberto Gabriel Bustos-Montes, 24, of East Palo Alto; Emmanuel Imani Hyland, 25, also of East Palo Alto; and Palo Altan Nina Cragg, 24, — will not face the death penalty but could still receive life in prison without parole if convicted of the capital murder charges, Wagstaffe said in June.
