Sheriff write-in candidate says he’s running to proclaim he has secrets

Heinz Puschendorf (Photo by Dave Boyce/The Almanac)

Deputy Heinz Puschendorf, at one time the president of the San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, is running for the top job of sheriff in the June 5 election.

Puschendorf is a write-in candidate, having thrown his hat into the ring, he said, due to his dissatisfaction with the April 25 public forum in which questions were posed to his electoral competitors: appointed incumbent Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Deputy Mark D. Melville.

After a series of interviews with The Almanac, Puschendorf’s status with the Sheriff’s Office is still unclear – although he’s still listed on the department roster as a disabled employee.

During the interviews, he made a series of claims about the department, including assertions that he has been persecuted by department higher-ups. The Almanac was unable to confirm these claims, and Puschendorf provided no documentation.

Asked for his priorities if elected, Puschendorf said they include addressing a system of mandatory overtime that he considers abusive, resolving an irregular distribution of detectives that shortchanges property crime investigations, and correcting an unfair system of rotation of detective assignments.

He also wants a competitive election, he said, but expects retribution for being outspoken. “I am the lone voice,” Puschendorf said in one interview. “Why do I run? Because I’m the last chance and opportunity for the truth to hopefully get out before it gets smothered,” he said. Because “they’re going to smother me. They’re going to do all the bad stuff, but I’m holding the aces in my hand because I have all the secrets. I know where the bodies are buried.”

The “truth” he refers to concerns what happened in April 2007 in Las Vegas, when Bolanos was detained by police along with then-sheriff Greg Munks when FBI agents raided an illegal and run-down brothel in a residential neighborhood.

Puschendorf said his account is based on visiting Las Vegas after the incident and researching the facts as presented by media accounts and talking with people who told him they witnessed the events of that night.

Records of that night have disappeared, he claimed, but he said he has thousands of pages of documents, including emails and depositions, that attest to a story that has not been told. He provided none of this documentation to The Almanac. He asserted that Bolanos has demanded silence from everyone.

His papers and the story they tell, he insisted, “is how I’ve kept my job. I have everybody with dirty stuff and (dirty) laundry. They’re trying to do all the stuff to get me. … That’s why I had to go public and run for (sheriff). I’m afraid of getting victimized even further.”

Puschendorf, 51, has not worked since April 2016 due to an injury incident in 2014 in which he was told to subdue an inmate in the jail. But while he is not being paid, his name is still on a roster that he provided to The Almanac. He is listed as disabled, but says he has not received any of the disability pay he’s entitled to. His situation has been manipulated, he claimed, to effectively render him a ghost on the roster and prevent him from getting due process.

He provided no documentation of efforts on his part to receive disability pay, and no explanation as to why he hasn’t filed for disability retirement.

Union management does not have his back and is in cahoots with the sheriff, Puschendorf said.

If he doesn’t win the election, he said, he’ll try for a recall “and do what it takes to take back control from these corrupt politicians and give control back to the good people of San Mateo County.”

I like this last statement and it falls in line with what Supervisor District 3 Candidate Dan Stegink said to the San Mateo Daily Journal. Even if Mr. Bolanos is elected it is unlikely he will complete his term.

Heinz has said publicly many times to vote for Mark Melville.

NOW would have been the time for Deputy Puschendorf to release the documents he said he has on Operation Dollhouse. If he waits until after the election, he’s a goner

What’s confusing is that Puschendorf doesn’t really have a job at the Sheriff’s office now, so it’s not clear what fallout he would have from submitting his documents about Operation Dollhouse to the Almanac. He says not showing them to the public is how he’s kept his job but he doesn’t have a job.Did the Almanac ask him to clear this issue up? What on earth would happen to him if he showed his *alleged * evidence to reporters?

Sheesh. Direct from the Trump twitter timeline in 2016. Only thing he forgot was to say is he is sending detectives to Hawaii to investigate a birth certificate.

This is the guy y’all want to splinter the vote for? Great choice.

Unfortunately, this candidacy is playing right into Bolanos’ hands (other candidates can’t possibly be taken seriously).

Melville is the man to vote for here. He’s a serious guy, and a seriously intelligent, experienced, ethical and responsible individual.

Hope he wins.

Vote Dan Stegink for Supervisor District 3

Here are just a few reasons why we say this.

The incumbent Supervisor Don Horsley was one of the leaders who misled the voters on Measure A 2012. He promoted the false story that the County had a deficit when he knew that the County in fact had a surplus. Not very honest

This Grand Jury report is saying Supervisors Don Horsley and Carole Groom  and others were dishonest in misleading the residents/voters of San Mateo County re: Measure A

San Mateo County Grand Jury Report

In 2012 Supervisor Don Horsley announced right after Christmas when very few people would notice. That he was going to renege on his campaign promise of No salary if you elect him.On December 28, 2012 The Daily News reported “Horsley to take Supervisor Salary.” Don Horsley had pledged to forgo the job’s salary if elected citing the County’s economic struggles which never existed. So once again misstating the truth. Horsley announced he is going back on his election vow, saying he now needs the $120,000 annual Supervisors salary more than the County. Starting this month Horsley will receive a Supervisor’s salary, remember this article was written 12/28/2012. What it didn’t say was that Don Horsley had started receiving the salary on November 10, 2012. 46 days before his announcement, So once again he is being dishonest with the residents and voters of SMC.

July 12, 2016 Supervisor Don Horsley led the illegal coup which appointed Carlos Bolanos to Sheriff without the public knowing that was even remotely a possibility. Here is what Supervisor Dave Pine said about it.

Supervisor Dave Pine

The public was completely removed from this process,” referring to the rushed and unexpected appointment of Carlos Bolanos to the office of San Mateo County Sheriff.The 3-2 decision to appoint Mr. Bolanos was a surprise, They dispensed with involving the public in any way in the process. He is talking about Don Horsley here.

2017 Supervisor Don Horsley makes a false statement to CBS5 re: Stolen M-16’s from the Sheriff Office. We have asked him to verify the method of communication the previous Sheriff allegedly informed him they were used for spare parts. Don Horsley has refused to answer.

Sabrina Brennan’s Terri Miller Quote. The 15 year old trafficked minor was “terrified.”

The subject matter is Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children, and Carlos Bolanos.

I have said that Sabrina Brennan’s Endorsement is more valuable than two Congresswomen in the past. The reason I say this is simple She is honest she represents the average resident/citizen living in San Mateo County wether they voted for her or not.

San Mateo Daily Journal Misleads their 83,450 readers. It’s that simple

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

This is the main reason it is so expensive to campaign in County Wide Elections. Advertising Businesses that look like Newspapers are allowed to be distributed to the unsuspecting residents. The County Supervisors and all Elected Officials are responsible for allowing this misinformation to be provided to the public. There should be Fact Checking for Honesty, and if the business does not meet a certain standard they should not be allowed to be distributed.

Editorial April 13, 2018 Bolanos for Sheriff

Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.

In this first paragraph there is no mention of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children at the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon St, Las Vegas, Nevada.

No mention of the 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 cash that was seized at the illegal brothel.

They leave out the fact that it was a 2 year multi jurisdictional Sting called Operation Dollhouse in Las Vegas, FBI, Las Vegas Metro Police, Las Vegas Sheriff Office, IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and ICE.

An initial news report, That is not even remotely close to the truth. The very first reports and there were several from 2 Las Vegas Metro Police Officers who were working that night. LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes of Vice both separately placed Bolanos inside the residence. They have never changed their statement. The SMDJ specifically Jon Mays has refused to identify his later reports indicated declaration. “outside the entire time.”

Munks maintained that he made a mistake and that he thought it was a legitimate business that provided massage and apologized publicly for his lack of judgment. Bolanos said he was never inside the building.

Every description of the location reveals a horrid situation. It was clearly a brothel, in decrepit condition, and had prostitutes there from other countries. An FBI report on the investigation provided to the Daily Journal reveals there was likely a juvenile involved.

Clearly, there was a significant lapse of judgment in both Bolanos and Munks being at the location, with Munks inside during the raid. This was a big mistake.

Munks is not running for election. Bolanos is. Anyone who believes that the decision to be at the location, albeit outside, is reason enough to not vote for Bolanos is justified. If anyone chooses not to believe Bolanos, they too are justified.

Bolanos said he was never inside the building. We believe him. We also believe there was a lapse of judgment in agreeing to go with Munks to that location. However, voters face a choice in this election as to who they want to run the Sheriff’s Office and we must weigh all the facts and qualifications to determine our recommendation as to who would do that most effectively.

Running against Bolanos is Mark Melville, a deputy within the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office who has had a long, varied and itinerant career in both law enforcement and city management. He has been city manager of two tiny Central Valley cities — Gustine and Livingston, the latter of which has a current population of 13,000. While Melville has strong positions on what is wrong with the Sheriff’s Office — too much overtime, poor morale — he has very few solid suggestions aside from a full review of every division and to redefine the training and hiring process. While both can yield some positive results, it does not seem to be enough of a solid plan. Melville said he decided to run because he felt voters deserved a choice, and that is to be commended. He also has the requisite experience on paper, but has not managed an organization even close to the size of the Sheriff’s Office. Bolanos currently oversees 800 employees and a $250 million budget — the approximate equivalent of a 100,000 population city.

Bolanos has also proved to be adept at contending with the budget, though the office is currently contending with an understaffing issue similar to many other organizations in this high-cost area. Bolanos is currently mandating one weekly shift of overtime per worker deputy, which is not a long-term solution but reasonable in the short term, while also keeping under budget. This is a skill learned over time managing a large organization both in the Sheriff’s Office as appointed sheriff and undersheriff and as Redwood City police chief before that.

 Bolanos has also emphasized the need for crisis intervention training for patrol, rebuilt the firing range at no cost to the county, and expanded the Sheriff’s Activities League. SAL has proven to be effective in not only keeping youth out of trouble after school but also establishing a connection between them and the deputies serving the communities. It has been particularly effective in the North Fair Oaks community, known for its working class Latino families.

Bolanos has also been a strong advocate for maintaining strong ties to the Latino community in light of concern about the current presidential administration’s policy shift when it comes to immigration and California’s Senate Bill 54. Not only has the Sheriff’s Office provided bridge outreach for immigrants to services but Bolanos has spent countless hours since the 2016 presidential election ameliorating concerns about the office’s policy on how it contends with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests. Bolanos said he maintains the policy that the Sheriff’s Office will not hold inmates after release for ICE agents and actually supported SB 54 as modifications were made in the legislation’s later stages to define the violent and dangerous felonies that would call for ICE contact. Bolanos also uses public safety as a guiding principal and believes the more comfort the populace feels in reporting crimes, the better the overall community is in being safe.

While an organization such as the Sheriff’s Office can always use improvement, we do not believe it would benefit from Melville taking the reins. We do think Melville has brought up some interesting points and Bolanos would benefit from heeding them as he begins his first official term.

And while the incident in Nevada will forever be a mark against the office, Bolanos has proven to be a serious, stable and effective manager when it comes to its primary mission — ensuring the safety of the community. Of the two candidates running, he deserves your vote.

We are not sure that having the Gang Task Force led by a Dishonest Sgt. ensures the safety of anyone.

December 15, 2015 Board of Supervisor meeting Michael Stogner a private victim’s advocate informs Supervisors in public about a dishonest San Mateo County Sheriff Office employee Sgt. Jason Peardon, Carlos Bolanos knew he was dishonest. This man produced a fraudulent I.A. Investigation against former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez 5:18 mark of the video.

Just two days before the mail in ballots were sent out these two elected officials find themselves at the podium making speeches with Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos.

The Gun buy back program is a feel good program financed by the taxpayers. I would rather have that money spent on finding the thief at the Sheriff’s Office.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office still has 2 Stolen M-16’s missing no matter what Supervisor Don Horsley told KPIX 5 reporter Len Ramirez 9/12/2014  “they were used for spare parts.” That was simply a dishonest statement by Don Horsely, not the first.

This event so close to the first election of the Sheriff for San Mateo County in 25 years could confuse the residents into thinking Jackie Speier endorses Carlos Bolanos, that would be a bad thing, this event is just 2 days before ballots are mailed out.

It’s time for Honesty in San Mateo County

Here is who was really behind this buy back.

Countywide gun buyback gathers support

San Carlos residents organizing buyback for first time since 2013

  • By Zachary Clark Daily Journal staff

As calls for gun control gather momentum in the wake of the Parkland school shooting, three San Carlos residents are attempting to make the Peninsula safer by reducing the number of guns in the community.

Danielle Lacampagne, Nilu Jenks and Becky Dodson formed the Citizens for a San Mateo County Gun Buyback organization to lobby cities across the county to contribute $5,000 to a gun buyback program, which was last held in San Mateo County in 2013.

“After Parkland, we felt we should do this,” Jenks said. “People are looking for something, and even one suicide or domestic homicide we can prevent is worth the effort or time.”

The group is calling for a similar program to the 2013 one, when the county paid $100 for pistols and rifles and $200 for assault-style weapons with no questions asked, bringing in more than 600 guns, according to a press release. A private donor contributed $63,000 to the 2013 buyback, but Jenks said funds ran out during the event, so this year the group is trying to raise at least $75,000.

So far, Redwood City and San Mateo have pledged $5,000 to the buyback, Jenks said, while Belmont’s City Council voted to contribute $5,000 and Woodside’s council voted to contribute $10,000. Woodside also voted to match another $5,000 donation if local students can raise the funds.

The most generous donor so far, the San Carlos City Council voted to match donations up to $50,000.

As of Wednesday, the buyback effort had raised $50,000. Daly City will fund its own buyback in May, Jenks said, and Portola Valley, Menlo Park and Foster City are set to vote on a donation within the next week.

Jenks also said private donors are starting to express interest as word gets out.

“We could not have forecasted this kind of support and we really appreciate it,” she said.

During Belmont’s Tuesday City Council meeting, Mayor Doug Kim said that city is also organizing a study session on school safety and mental health programs, and the council is drafting a resolution on public safety and gun violence in addition to contributing to the buyback effort.

“I think everyone in this room has felt a sense of frustration and helplessness over the past weeks, months and years,” Kim said. “I felt that this issue could not be ignored in a city like ours, we need to find what we can control within our purview and tonight is the first of several things that we as a small city on Peninsula can do to stand up and say here’s what we hold dear in terms of our values.”

Jenks said last month her organization approached San Mateo Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, who agreed to manage the buyback program and provide staff and security. The Sheriff’s Office will destroy all surrendered firearms.

Jenks said the buyback will likely be held May 5.

“This has very much been on our minds lately with the firearms store last fall,” San Carlos Councilman Mark Olbert said, referring to a moratorium on new stores that sell guns passed after a business received a permit to do so. “Many of the citizens pushing for this throughout the county are San Carlos residents so the council saw it as an important issue that a lot of people in our community are working towards. That’s something we want to support as much as possible, and we want to incentivize other communities to step forward.”

Despite its growing support, not everyone is on board with the program. San Carlos Councilman Matt Grocott, who voted against his city’s contribution to the buyback and the store moratorium, believes the money could be better spent on security efforts.

“I really question the claim that this (a buyback program) will make us any more safe in San Carlos, just look at the statistics,” Grocott said, adding that the last gun suicide in his city occurred in the 1980s and the last homicide was a knife attack more than 10 years ago. “So what it means is we’re putting up a $50,000 subsidy to parts of the county where gun violence is more prevalent.

“A lot of the guns that do get turned in are old and inoperable, basically scrap metal,” he added. “Someone could turn in two to three old, inoperable guns and turn around and buy something operable and you haven’t accomplished anything.”

But the San Carlos citizens group is determined to address gun violence and not just through a buyback. Jenks said her organization is also discussing future education and awareness efforts.

“Once we hit $75,000, we’ll really think about what’s next,” Jenks said.

San Mateo County Elected Officials Ignore the average concerned citizen/resident. The residents are getting involved.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

That has been going on as long as I can remember, They pretend to be interested while they listen to you during your 2-3 minute public comment. Most recent example was March 13, 2018 when concerned citizen Mark De Paula made a three minute presentation requesting all elected officials withdraw their endorsement of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. Mr. De Paula then communicated with all elected officials.

Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville stated he did watch Mr. De Paula’s presentation and said “It proves that Sheriff Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos are Liars.’ “They were both Inside the house.”

Yesterday this e-mail was sent to most elected officials.

Subject: Carlos Bolanos and You
If you are receiving this email it is because you or a friend have endorsed a man who has either a) As a career lawman stood outside an obvious illegal brothel while his boss, the Sheriff of San Mateo County had sex with a probably minor sex-slave inside, or; b) Waited inside the brothel for his turn at the child sex-slaves while his boss was busy in one of the bedrooms.
There is no upside for you here. Add in the fact that it has now been alleged by an apparent SMCSO Deputy that Bolanos and Munks offered false IDs and were arrested and taken downtown before being bailed out by Gallagher, Kearnan and Sanchez and then add in the fact that the people who bailed them out appear to have been promoted ahead of grade and position up to the point of retirement as Assistant Sheriffs.
Carlos Bolanos is a toxic waste heap that is going to devour you if you remain supportive of him. Several smart local politicians have already pulled their endorsements of him. You must do the same or you risk deservedly and ignominiously going down with him in the fallout of your support for law enforcement officers who facilitated or solicited child-slaves in the service of their “needs.”
Dump Bolanos now. It is the only even remotely smart political choice you have. And announce it to the world when you do. Anything less and you risk being associated with Carols Bolanos forever.

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo Endorses Don Horsley for Supervisor. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

The Congresswoman has personal knowledge that Sheriff Don Horsley lied under oath August 2, 2004 and Ignored her warning to him on July 12, 2016 to open the appoint process to fill the Sheriff position. Why on earth would she endorse him?

Our Elected Officials should be endorsing Honest people.

In 2004 she was on a Congressional Hearing in San Mateo where I Michael Stogner asked her to ask my Sheriff Don Horsley if all explosives stolen were recovered. The ATF agent on pg. 39-40 had just testified under oath that 30-35lbs of C-4 had been stolen. Sheriff Don Horsley testified under oath that 10lbs of C-4 was recovered pg.76. The Congresswomen looked at me in the audience as I shrugged my shoulders to imply How can he say 10lbs of C-4 when just minutes before the ATF agent said 30-35lbs of C-4. So on pg. 109 she asks my question again, and again.

July 12, 2016 BOS Meeting Agenda Item 7

Supervisor Don Horsley led the Illegal Violent Coup which appointed Carlos Bolanos to Sheriff when he had not applied to be appointed, as a matter of fact nobody had applied because the Supervisors had not opened the application process. Congresswoman had her letter to the BOS read at the beginning of Item 7 where she warned the Supervisors not to appoint Carlos Bolanos without the appointment process.

Text of the letter by Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, and Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo:

July 12, 2016

The Honorable Warren Slocum, President

San Mateo County Board of Supervisors

County Center

Redwood City, CA 94063

Dear President Slocum and Members of the Board:

We are unaccustomed to weighing in on County matters outside of measures and initiatives or local policy discussions, such as the recent ones about housing or sea level rise, that involve broad federal and local policies. Many of you, from time to time, have asked us to join you in support of these and other public policy efforts.

Some of you, independent of each other, have also recently asked us to comment on the decision before you today—whether to appoint or to call for an election in the matter of a replacement for the Sheriff. For a long period of time, there have been rumors that Sheriff Munks would retire early and pave the way for the Undersheriff to take this position. Whether these rumors are true or not, this has been a perception. We believe that our mutual constituents support a decision making process that is absent a perception of a pre-ordained outcome.

The office of the Sheriff is a critically important job, as we all know. We know that you share our belief that the public has a right to be heard. The question is whether an election within such a short time frame, and with one announced candidate — the Undersheriff who has been working for more than a year to become Sheriff, would allow for an even playing field on which to compete. We are not sure.

We do know that there are members of law enforcement who would be willing to compete for an appointment but who feel severely disadvantaged to compete in an election under the present circumstances. We therefore believe an appointment process should be undertaken which allows for candidates to openly apply and to be reviewed. This seems especially important in light of the recent public concerns about policing practices throughout the country.

We believe that a way to build public confidence would be for the Board to conduct an open and transparent search for a successor. We also realize that the timeframe for appointment is very short and would require you to either extend it (which may not be allowed under the charter) or to add additional board meetings to your schedule in the next month so that the public is able to participate through those meetings and perhaps, if permissible, the selection process itself.

We realize that selection of the Sheriff is customarily made by voters and have for decades always supported this process. In this instance, the voters themselves may best be served by a method that increases competition for the position and that creates a zone of evaluation that is informed by rigorous, public analysis of multiple persons.

As we all seek to increase the confidence of the public in the administration of justice, we also seek ways to demonstrate to the public that its interests are at the heart of our decisions. Inviting applications, establishing a public interview and discussion with applicants, and assuring the public of a transparent selection process will, in our judgment, help to increase confidence in the administration of justice in San Mateo County.

All the best,
