Nine County Vote is pretty Un-Democratic.

If You Ain’t Got the Money, Don’t Cross the Bridge, Honey OR Close Your Eyes and Open Your Wallets

I get it. The more people we have come here the more dollars we need from taxpayers to pay for infrastructure. My issue is this: They told us they were going to build to create affordable housing, but then they need to increase costos and taxes everywhere to pay for the infrastructure. Toll Lanes. Bridge fare increases. All of this equates to gentrification. Even if you were one of the lucky few to obtain one of the few, true, affordable housing units they’re building, where will you find more money merely to exist here on a daily basis?  Kind of kills the thing that housing advocates are advocating for in the first place.

The other scary thing is that they are setting this up for a pretty Un-Democratic win. How? Last year was the very first year that they created a Nine County vote. (This happened to be for measure AA.) You no longer need to get a majority vote per County if you do it this way. You only need to get a majority vote with all nine counties combined. It removes power from the voters. In order to ensure all of this taxation that is coming down the pike, get ready to see Nine County votes on a regular basis.

Removing voter power and continuing new taxation is a win for our politicians. The money spent to sell you on every single tax and measure that comes down the pike is a immense. One gigantic advertisement. Perhaps we should start asking where has the money gone? All of the money we have given already? All of the money you promised would go toward the things you are bringing up new taxes for? I think some are starting to take the blinders off and ask these questions. These Nine County votes are a technique to quiet you.

Two valid concerns they hope you won’t pay attention to. Just close your eyes and open your wallet.

This is going to have a positive impact on Parents & Children.

It is also going to have an impact on California State Bar, Commission on Judicial Performance, Judges, Attorneys, and all members of the Cottage Industry that thrives in our courts.

California Commission on Judicial Performance Court Date.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Francisco, California August 17, 2017 Hon. Judge Susan Bolanos heard arguments on the Commission’s Confidential determination of its data. This agency has Never been audited in nearly 57 years,

The Law Firm Wagstaffe & Kerr LLP represented the public funded agency Commission on Judicial Performance. They are claiming the agency has the authority to determine  the information the State of California Auditor is requesting is Confidential and the State of California has no right to see it.

Think about it, this agency was formed to assure the public that nobody is above the law, including Judges

San Mateo County residents will recognize the Wagstaffe brothers involvement in protecting “Those Who Matter.” SMC Chief Deputy District attorney Steve Wagstaffe authored the “Those Who Matter.” e-mail the very first day the public became aware of our top two Law Enforcement Officers the Sheriff and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were caught and detained as CUSTOMERS of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada, April 21, 2007 in an FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse.

Here is the e-mail our DDA Steve Wagstaffe sent to Carlos G. Bolanos the very first day anybody even heard about them being detained inside a residential home, with sex slaves in it. He blames the media.

Greg and Carlos

Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time. To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by tomorrow.

My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.

Steve

The Commission on Judicial Performance, the first judicial disciplinary body of its kind, was established by legislative constitutional amendment approved by voters in 1960 as an independent state agency. The commission’s mandate has always been threefold: to protect the public, enforce rigorous standards of judicial conduct and maintain public confidence in the integrity and independence of the judicial system.

SMCHD Commissioner Sabrina Brennan not allowed to speak as a Private Citizen. Here is the real reason.

Sabrina Brennan has done it again, she has demonstrated that she looks out for the close to 800,000 residents and taxpayers of San Mateo County. She was concerned and she had good reason to be concerned. She was Not allowed to speak as a Private Citizen at the meeting, Here is her letter.

Dear Mayor Gupta, President Mattusch, Mr. Futrell and Mr. McGrath, 

 
I’m concerned about public safety and the safety of Harbor District employees.  
 
On Wednesday, Oyster Point Marina fuel system hazards were not discussed during a Special Meeting held at South San Francisco City Hall at 2:00pm. The meeting was specifically about the attached Draft Agreement.
 
The fuel system appears to be in extreme disrepair. As you know the fuel system is located in an area exposed to significant flooding. Please see the attached photo. 
 
The public and the unidentified people currently operating the fuel system are unaware of the safety concerns raised in the attached May 26, 2017 Fuel Dock Condition Assessment.
 
For years Drake Marine operated the fuel system at Oyster Point. Jim Drake sub-leased from Oyster Point Development. On Wednesday, I learned from Mike Futrell that the Drake Marine lease has been terminated. However some people are still operating the Fuel System at Oyster Point Marina.  I’m not sure who these people are but they don’t appear to work for Oyster Point Development (the current lease holder), the City of South San Francisco, or the SMC Harbor District.  
 
Who is providing oversight for the fuel system operation?  
 
Yesterday, I learned that the City of South San Francisco has performed a number of Fuel System inspections at Oyster Point. It’s my understanding that the Harbor District requested the inspection reports some time ago and has some of them but not the most recent inspection report. I would like to read all fuel system inspection reports including the most recent report. Please provide them unredacted. 
 
Yesterday, I also learned that Steven Miller, general counsel for the Harbor District sent a strongly worded letter regarding concerns about the fuel system at Oyster Point.  Please provide Miller’s letter unredacted.
Sincerely,
Sabrina Brennan

San Mateo County’s DDA Melissa McKowan Court Case for Dishonesty is off calendar.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Matter # 13-O-13293

https://goo.gl/images/APLTNb

The trial was set for August 15-18 in San Francisco which was expected to have 3 days of character witnesses telling the Judge what an Honest person Melissa McKowan was/is. The State Bar of California has reached a tentative settlement and therefore removed the trial from the courts calendar.

I have said that Melissa McKowan should not be employed by San Mateo County, She should have been fired back in 2010 when this exact behavior first surfaced.

San Mateo County Supervisor’s have allowed this Dishonest behavior in the District Attorney’s Office for 17 years that we are aware of.

Our fingers are crossed that the settlement includes disbarment.

The Almanac continues to protect the District Attorney’s Office

The above article has closed the comment section. I notified the paper in advance of the April 17, 2017 Hearing they did not write an article about it and refused to allow me to blog about it, I attended the hearing they did not.
