Did it ever occur to you that the Voters might want to know this information? I’m sure many wouldn’t care but the lack of Transparency is questionable. It’s simple an honest press release 3 months ago would have gone a long way on this issue. Now there are Many more Questions.

It’s been 28 days since I first heard the name Munir Edais. If you are a San Mateo County Resident I’m guessing you have never heard his name either. Why is that?
According to Daly City Police Officer Lorena Reyes #2135 (1st patrol officer on the scene) on January 21, 2020 a little after 2 AM Munir Edais a Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Officer Hung Himself in Bedroom #2 of his apartment in front of the Nanny Camera.
The Nanny Camera would have been the perfect witness/evidence to this “He Hung Himself Story.”
The Nanny Camera would have answered many of the nagging questions that the Edais Family still has to this very day 28 months later.
What time and date did the Daly City Police Department take the Nanny Camera from Munir Edais’ apartment as Evidence? When did the DCPD view the video from the Nanny Camera?
I have signed the petition because there was NO Investigation period, Let’s Fix That.
Deleting government emails too quickly is not OK A fundamental principle of a free and open society is that citizens have a right to know what’s going on inside their government. A crucial way Californians exercise this right is with the state’s Public Records Act , which allows people to see email correspondence, contracts and other documents held by local and state officials. It’s how, early in the pandemic, journalists were able to reveal the details of California’s scramble to obtain medical masks, including the collapse of a nearly $800-million deal with a politically connected vendor and the decision to secretly wire nearly half a billion dollars to a company that had been in business for just three days — only to quickly call off the deal and claw back the money. Emails obtained under the law allowed The Times and environmental activists to expose how Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration worked to influence decisions in favor of a controversial water desalination plant. And documents The Times obtained under the law showed that the state parks department let some employees live at government-owned homes in some of California’s most scenic locales for cut-rate rents averaging $215 a month. The law is clear that state agencies must, with some exceptions, release records in their possession. But what’s not clear is how long they must hang onto those documents. And this is critical, because the government can effectively hide records it doesn’t want the public to see by destroying or deleting them before anyone asks for them. Nothing to see here! Literally. Legislation moving through the Capitol addresses the issue by requiring that all state agencies retain digital and paper records for at least two years. State law already requires that local governments do this, but state agencies have been allowed to decide for themselves how long to hang onto different kinds of records, and the range is huge. Just within the California Environmental Protection Agency, for example, retention timelines vary from 90 days for informal emails, to a decade for documents related to environmental justice investigations of birth defects, to permanent storage of correspondence with tribal governments. Recently, when the Department of Insurance announced plans to start deleting emails after 180 days, an employee complained that they needed access to older emails to keep track of past communications in enforcement cases. The department, already facing litigation for not releasing detailed calendars requested under the Public Records Act, backtracked on the plan to speed up email deletion. Assembly Bill 2370 would make clear that all state records, including email, must be retained for at least two years. Its author, Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-Greenbrae), is running for insurance commissioner this year with a campaign echoing the same concerns raised by Consumer Watchdog, the group that sued current Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara for calendars detailing his appointments with industry executives who contributed to his campaign. So this bill clearly has some political overtones. But that does not negate the fact that it would advance government transparency and serve the public interest. We urge the Legislature to continue advancing the bill. Similar legislation passed in 2019 but was vetoed by Newsom, who said it would be too costly to store data and hire the necessary personnel to manage retaining records. The Legislature’s price tag on that bill was vague, saying that “state costs could reach into the millions of dollars.” Lawmakers ought to do a more thorough cost analysis this time around, including taking into account advances in technology that are continually reducing the cost of data storage. And then weigh that against the moral penalty for keeping the public in the dark.
San Mateo County Government E-mails should be preserved Not Deleted.
This was one of the main reasons I started San Mateo County News.com in the first place.
This article Published by Jerry Lee and Jon Mays doesn’t show a reporter, and I can tell you there was nobody from SMDJ in the Courtroom 2B yesterday covering the Dionicio R. Lopez Sentencing Hearing on cases SC076512-A and SC082939-A. I was the only reporter attending which is par for the course in San Mateo County.
This is a perfect example of the Modern Day Media, “Those Who Matter” and Yesterdays News by Tomorrow that District Attorney James P. Fox R.I.P. and Deputy Chief District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe typed about in their April 25, 2007 e-mails to then Sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.
San Mateo County jail inmate who acquired illegal goods sentenced
Linkedin Dionicio Lopez A jail inmate who conspired with two San Mateo County correctional officers in 2013 to acquire cellphones and drugs for use over several months has received three years probation, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office said Friday. Dionicio Lopez, a known gang member, was given two cellphones and Oxy Contin for several months and was allowed to use the cellphones openly in the county jail, the DA’s Office said. The incidents occurred from April to December of 2013. He received credit for a year of jail
The right candidate has NOT surfaced yet, they have until March 16, 2022 to file.
San Mateo County Manager/Purchasing Agent/Clerk to the Board of Supervisors Mike Callagy is an At-Will Employee of the Supervisors. Everybody knows that.
Steven Booker, Noelia Corzo, Laura Parmer-Lohan, Virginia Chang Kiraly, Ray Mueller and Charles Stone, are all candidates for the District 2&3 Supervisor of San Mateo County in the June 7, 2022 election.
San Mateo County Government still has not made the January 25, 2022 Supervisor Meeting Public.
Of Interest is Agenda Item 12 watch the 4 Supervisors Violate their Oath.
First reported by Dan Noyes of ABC 7 on January 13, 2022 “MORE than $10,000,000.00” of PPE.
Former President of the Board of Supervisors and Candidate for Congress David Canepa claimed he first heard about it from Dan Noyes that day. He also knows Mike Callagy works for the Supervisors.
San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy told Dan Noyes the same thing. He also said “I don’t know” when asked, How much are we talking about? He went from I don’t know to $7M in less than 24 hrs. That is a huge difference, We should start there before anything else happens. HOW MUCH WAS IT?
James Brown President of Wine Country Marines (WCM) posted on Facebook 12 minutes before Dan Noyes broke the story that San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management gave him the PPE and that he would be distributing it on January 25, 2022.
On January 25, 2022 the Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 to give County Manager Mike Callagy authority to distribute the PPE. Up until that moment he was limited to $10,000.00 not $10,000,000.00
That is why I asked Michelle Durand of Mike Callagy’s Office for a copy of the document from SMC to James Brown giving him and the WCM the more than $10M in PPE.
I’m still waiting for that Document.
Let me see what I can do. With the holiday, it will probably not be before tomorrow but I’ll be back in touch.
From: Michael Stogner <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Monday, January 17, 2022 at 10:55 AM To: Michelle Durand <email@example.com> Subject: Document for Donation of $10M PPE to Wine Country Marines James Brown
CAUTION: This email originated from outside of San Mateo County. Unless you recognize the sender’s email address and know the content is safe, do not click links, open attachments or reply.
I hope things are going well for you.
Could you please send me a copy of the Donation agreement to Wine County Marines, James Brown mentioned on his Facebook page January 13, 2022 6:00 PM
The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated to 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.
You will recall Sandra Lee Harmon was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. San Mateo County Government never came out and informed the public that the SMC Employees shot at her while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. They also failed to mention she was shot in the back while unarmed.
Sarah the daughter is in court today on ZOOM at 1:00PM
Before any more crimes are committed, I recommend the San Mateo County Supervisors contact James Brown, let him know you are sorry for the mix up, that whoever gave him the $10,000,000 of PPE did not have the authority to do so. Offer him $10,000 for his time and thank him for volunteering in the first place. San Mateo County should be distributing this PPE it’s in Geat Condition. Get it to the people in San Mateo County.
James Brown CEO West Coast Solutions Inc. San Carlos, San Mateo County 4D’s ago
“We are working hard on getting this into the hands of organizations and groups that need it. Fortunately most of it is in Great condition, vacuum sealed in plastic and only the outer card board was damaged in many cases. Also there was quite a bit stored indoors.“
Why James Brown? isn’t there one employee in San Mateo County who has the capability and skill set to distribute the $9,000,000 of PPE that is in GREAT CONDITION according to him. It should be distributed to San Mateo County period.
If it’s in great condition today January 20, 2022 just think it must have been in great or perfect condition from the time SMC took possession of it, which to this still remains unknown.
When did SMC get this $10M of PPE?
Was it one shipment? what dates? Who signed for it?
Why didn’t SMC distribute it right after they got it?
Why doesn’t San Mateo County distribute it today?
It was No Mistake that this $10M PPE was left outside, It was ordered to be moved outside, part of the plan.
San Mateo Event Center Manager DANA STOEHR: “It’s, it was fully taken care of exactly the way it should have been.”
The Residents, Elected Officials and Candidates are fine with that.
Most recently San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus, and Retired Sgt. Jeffrey Kearnan Investigated the Sheriff’s Activity League Embezzlement and Money Laundering that involved several people and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
San Mateo County News.com is going on the record to say that San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy is the last person that should be involved in the Investigation of the reported $10,000,000 of Personal Protective Equipment PPE that was stored outside on the San Mateo County Event Centers property for more than three months. County Manager Mike Callagy is RESPONSIBLE.
A reasonable person would would know “He can not Investigate Himself” but don’t forget this is San Mateo County where the residents are fine with the Conflict of Interest, and “Those Who Matter.”
Congresswoman Jackie Speier said the Obvious. “It has to be investigated.”
What she did not say is by who?
So for now it’s early since this story was reported by Dan Noyes, the amount is $10,000,000.
It involves Federal Money.
It involves PPE not cleaning supplies.
It involves Brand New PPE not Surplus.
The cause of this damage is Negligence, Not California Rain.
