Background April 7, 2021 Roger Allen was shot and killed by Daly City Police Department, he was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck. Nobody requested the Police to show up. 4 Officers did and surrounded the vehicle. The Official report from Chief of Police Patrick Hensley and approved by Shawanna Maltbie was “They were there to Help.” That was the first time I had heard of Daly City Police Officers “We are here to Help” on what normally would be a AAA call to fix a flat tire.
Shawanna Maltbie the City Manager is responsible for the behavior of the Police Department, (What I mean by that is the City Manager can Fire the Police Chief and she could have named the 4 Officers the very first day of the Homicide, She simply chose not to.) and serves at the pleasure of the City Council. This was just demonstrated to all SMC Residents by the Foster City Gang of 3 (G3) when they FIRED Dr. Peter Prinejad, August 25, 2021, their recently hired City Manager for NO CAUSE.
Daly City has NO Councilmember at this time who thinks Shawanna Maltbie should be fired. That is why Public is now speaking up. The Public is responsible for how their Government acts.
Per the The Public’s demands from The Daly City Council Meeting from this past Monday, September 13, 2021, The Daly City Public will be visiting Daly City Hall, Today, September 20th, around 11:30 AM to confirm resignation of all Daly City Council Members, City Manager, Assistant City Manager, City Clerk and Police Chief.
These demands were made at the 2:41:49 mark.
The next step and really the only one that will make an impact on Daly City Government is for the Public to organize and RECALL at least 3 of the 5 Councilmembers. Can it be done? Just look to the residents of Foster City who successfully RECALLED the Vice Mayor Herb Perez, not that long ago.
