San Mateo County 63,359 Ballots.

By Michael G. Stogner

Mark Church

Update June 10, 2022

ElectionSummaryReportRPT

Voters Cast: 75,776 of 433,539 (17.48%) Estimated number of ballots left to process as of June 9: 77,000. That means 152,776 qualified ballots have been returned to San Mateo County as of June 9, 2022. It also means there are more ballots to be counted today than was reported on June 7, 2022.

Elections and Ballot counting should be simple math easy to understand.

The Important number is always the same, How many ballots total were returned on time to the San Mateo County Elections Office for the June 7, 2022 Election.

Without this number being made public right from the beginning, the public will never have confidence in the results. A good example was the 2018 YES on W Measure by San Mateo County Neighbors for Congestion Relief. That measure lost every single reporting date right up until the last two and then it passed by a very small margin.

Mark Church is showing that number to be 63,359 out of the 433,539 registered voters.

IMHO one of the Most Exciting Elections Race if you could call it that this one.

So far 45,684 San Mateo County Voters voted for DDA Sharon Cho to be a JUDGE.

You will remember she was the Prosecutor of Zain Jaffer in 2017. He was arrested by the Hillsborough Police Department for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son. HPD wore Body Worn Cameras. Everybody and their mothers know what happened to that case right?

When did the Hon. Judge Joseph Scott decide to Not run for Re-Election? Why did Hon. Judge Joseph Scott decide to Not run for Re-Election?

Nanny Camera in Bedroom #2, Munir Edais R.I.P. A very Suspicious Death of a Police Officer.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

Alex Tourk, Mike Callagy, Michelle Durand lied about the $10,000,000.00 of PPE. So what?

By Michael G. Stogner

That is not earth shattering News for San Mateo County Residents, SMC has a long History of Sheriff and UnderSheriff lying to the residents in public press releases, April 2007 is just one little example. SMC has Sheriff Sergeants and other Sheriff employees committing Felony crimes PC115(a) and even Perjury in the Courts. The Rachel Amanda Quintana case of Half Moon Bay and SMCSO Sergeant Mike Otte committing Perjury is just one example.

What date and time did San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy hire Alex Tourk for $15,000.00 per month to create and distribute a lie to the 760,000 residents of the County?

Mike Callagy should pay for Alex Tourk’s work out of his own pocket.

ABC7 I-TEAM Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes and James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines both made Public Announcements on January 13, 2022 about the PPE, San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management generous donation of the large amount of PPE that was to be distributed by WCM on January 25, 2022.

Dan Noyes accurately reported on January 13, 2022 that the value was more than $10,000,000.00

Dan Noyes accurately reported on January 30, 2022 the “Blatant Lie” from SMC Government Officials.

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy on January 13, 2022 said “He did not know the value.”

This is where Alex Tourk, Principal of Ground Floor Public Affairs comes in the picture.

Less than 24 hours after SMC Manager Mike Callagy said he didn’t know the value, a PR piece is mass distributed on a bunch of Bot media news sites regurgitating the exact same B.S..

Here is what Alex Tourk, Mike Callagy and Michelle Durand put out to the residents at 3:30PM 1/14/22

“The estimated value of the supplies based on the original purchase prices is $7 million.”

Today’s Google search: Mike Callagy $7M PPE Here are the results of just the 1st page notice the names of these News sites. That is what a PR firm does.

San Mateo County Residents might recall seeing that exact Public Relations Spin in the Hillsborough resident Zain Jaffer Criminal case in October 2017 where he was arrested by the HBPD for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son and 5 other Felony Counts. People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A.

He is the only defendant that I am aware of who had already hired Michael S. Sitrick who the L.A. Times calls “The Wizard of Spin” who had already prepared a Press Release about Zain Jaffer’s case being completely dismissed before anybody knew that District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and DDA Sharon Cho were going to ask a San Mateo County Judge to dismiss ALL of the charges. He (Zain Jaffer) read the prepared press release at court.

SMC Judge Elizabeth Hill, Deny Zain Jaffer Motion to Destroy Records in case 17-NF-012415A

    Moving party: Defense Motion title: Motion to withdraw petition

Today at 10 AM Courtroom 2A the Hon. Judge Elizabeth Hill will preside over a Motion by Attorney Pezhman Pakmeshan to Destroy all records in the Zainali Jaffer case. On December 30, 2021 Opposition to Motion was filed.

Before the Superior Court of California County of San Mateo approves such a Motion, I’m asking that you Correct the Record and Synchronize it with the known Facts. The Odyssey Portal Court Records in the Zainali Jaffer case start with a criminal case being filed on 2/13/2018. The entire DATA from October 15, 2017 until February 13, 2018 is MISSING. That’s 4 months, Who caused that to happen?

Zainali Jaffer was arrested on October 15, 2017 by the Hillsborough Police Department for Attempted Murder of a child (his 3 year old son).

The Official State of California Court Record fails to mention San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Filed a Criminal Case against Zainali Jaffer on October 17, 2017 and he was arraigned in Court on October 17, 2017. The Attempted Murder of a Child was NOT one of the charges.

The Official Court Records in the Zainali Jaffer case should be preserved until the PUBLIC can be sure there is no corruption in the State of California Courts.

Who is responsible for the DATA in the Odyssey Portal Court Records?

Who has access to that DATA?

I would recommend before ANY Judge rule on this Motion, they view the Hillsborough Police Department’s Body Worn Camera Video of the October 15, 2017 4:00AM arrest. Also check with Town of Hillsborough to see what their position on the Destruction of all records might be.

The last time San Mateo County News.com interviewed Hillsborough Police Chief Mark O’Connor on the Arrest of Zainali Jaffer he said he stands by ALL of the Charges. That includes the Attempted Murder of a Child.

Records should be Studied not Destroyed Article

The Public is invited to attend the San Mateo County Courts in PERSON. That is a Terrible Idea.

California A.G. Rob Bonta, say something to Judge Barbara Mallach, Zain Jaffer Motion to Destroy BWC Video.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: This Motion to Destroy Records has been continued to January 3, 2022

Dear Attorney General Rob Bonta,

Please don’t forget Zain Jaffer was arrested by the Hillsborough Police Department on October 15, 2017 for Attempted Murder of a child, There is Body Worn Camera Video.

Tomorrow December 20, 2021 Superior Court of California County of San Mateo in Courtroom 2A at 10:00 AM the Hon. Judge Barbara Mallach has a Motion to Destroy all the records in the Zain Jaffer case 17NF012415A.

Destroying the Records and Evidence is Not in the Public’s Interest.

These records could be very valuable to the wife and children in the future.

Diminished Capacity is No Excuse for Criminal Conduct.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe fails to Mention Motion to Dismiss the Entire Zain Jaffer case.

The Zain Jaffer case was dismissed July 2, 2018. That is a fact.

Prosecutions are implicitly limited to district attorneys per California Penal Code § 739, which describes the “duty” of district attorneys to file charges after a judge finds grounds that an offense has been committed. A judge did find that in the Zain Jaffer case.

So what really happened?

San Mateo County should Audit this case and determine if the legal process was followed. He was arrested for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son, why did that disappear so fast. Did CPS & APS follow protocol?

The decision to dismiss the entire Zain Jaffer case must have been made before this Media Update of Cases of Interest was sent out. What date was it decided to dismiss the case? What date was the motion to dismiss prepared? What date was the motion to dismiss filed with the court? The reason I ask these questions is that Zain Jaffer read a prepared statement in court written before hand by a public relations firm, so they all knew this was going to happen.
