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.

“It is the mission of the Daily Journal to be the most accurate, fair and relevant local news source for those who live, work and play on the mid-Peninsula”

Our large and loyal audience will see your presence in the Daily Journal, and you will achieve a return on your investment. However, more than that, you will also be seen as supporting a community institution, a locally owned newspaper that does good and helps make the Peninsula a better place.

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. 

Carlos Bolanos caught and detained as a customer of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves.

The 15 year old trafficked minor was “Terrified” Terri Miller.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier is teaming up with Carlos Bolanos. Why? If she is serious about Human Trafficked Sex Slaves/Children as she claims, she would stay clear of him.

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.

    Hello Michael,

    It is still under investigation.

    Thank you.

    Office: 650-363-4800

    Cell: 650-421-1243

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 3 days before ballots are mailed out.

It’s time for Honesty in San Mateo County

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,

Jackie Speier Anna G. Eshoo

He promises to only serve 4 years, and not collect a pension.
