Also just a reminder to the public, the County Manager position is an at-will employee, the person/s responsible for his/her behavior is the SUPERVISOR/S.

It’s been 6 days since the January 25, 2022 BOS Meeting. The subject matter was more than $10,000,000.00 of PPE given to Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022. Source ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes.

San Mateo County Supervisors, What was it?

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

On January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes reported MORE than $10,000,000 of PPE was ordered moved outside the San Mateo County Event Center and there was some minor damage to the Cardboard Boxes. That same day He asked the County Manager Mike Callagy what the value of the PPE was? Mike Callagy responded “I don’t know.”

The next day Mike Callagy issued a Press Release that got published all over the internet that stated approximately $7.7M of SURPLUS PPE.

Mike Callagy went from “I don’t know” to a $3,000,000.00 difference in less than 24 hours.

That number has since been reduced in the media to $7,000,000.00

I thought it would be a Great Idea if the 5 Supervisors did their job and Verify the EXACT Dollar amount of PPE that was purchased with Taxpayer money. Not one of them liked that idea.

Here is a list of some questions I thought they might want to get the answers too. They had NO Interest.

Remove Item 12 from the Agenda January 25, 2022
What is the current Inventory of the PPE at SMCCC?
What was the actual cost of all the PPE stored at SMCCC?
Who ordered the PPE moved outside of the SMCCC? What date?
Who ordered the CONVOY of Garbage trucks to remove PPE from SMCCC? Date?
What is Wine Country Marines experience in distributing PPE items in this volume?
What has been Wine Country Marines largest distribution to date?
What other organizations were considered to distribute this PPE?
Why is there no mention of Distributing this PPE to San Mateo County Only?
Why wasn’t this PPE distributed when SMC first received it?
What made James Brown think the PPE was already donated to WCM?
Who in San Mateo County made him think that?

On January 25, 2022 at the Board of Supervisors Meeting there were only 2 Public Comments on Agenda Item 12. I will publish the Video of that meeting as soon as Mike Callagy allows it on the San Mateo County Website, as of 1/29/2022 @ 7:00 AM it’s not available.

SMC $10M + PPE Investigator is Dr. Jim Lianides

By Michael G. Stogner

Whenever Government gets caught it’s not uncommon to immediately launch an Investigation to assure the Taxpayers, that this was a Mistake, We don’t know how it happened, and we will Investigate Ourselves and produce a report in the future to make sure nobody is held responsible.

A suggestion for Dr. Jim Lianides, is to ask San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy,

“Did you order the PPE moved outside the building at San Mateo County Event Center?”

Question for Dana Stoehr “Who ordered the PPE moved outside the building?”

These two questions should take about 4 minutes to ask and get responses.

That is really the question San Mateo County Residents want answered.

I received the e-mail below yesterday at 10:39 AM from Mike Callagy

Good morning Mr. Stogner,

On January 20, 2022, the County hired Dr. Jim Lianides to conduct the investigation. The County was searching for a neutral and experienced person who has run a government organization at the highest level and who understands government finance, purchasing, internal controls, employment and systems. Mr. Lianides has over 40 years of public sector experience, most recently as the (ret.) Superintendent of the Sequoia Union High School District. 

The scope of the investigation is to review the County’s existing practices and what transpired with respect to the handling, tracking and safeguarding of the equipment; to research best practices for government agency handling, tracking and safeguarding of similar equipment, particularly in a contingency setting; and to make recommendations for handling, tracking and safeguarding of such equipment in the future.

Best regards,

Mike

You’ll see from the description above the SCOPE of this work does not include Who Ordered it OUTSIDE. Also NO MENTION of the CONVOY of Recology Garbage Trucks and PPE in the last 2 months. Source Dan Noyes ABC 7

ABC News Dan Noyes, uncovers $10M PPE left outside unprotected by San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Excellent reporting by Dan Noyes, How many San Mateo County Officials and Employees knew about this and did nothing about it. Hopefully some of it can be saved. How did Dan Noyes get access to walk around and video all of the damaged boxes. I’m glad he did, it demonstrates a lack or Security by SMC. Also a big Thank You to the person who reported this. This was not a Mistake.

SMC County Manager Mike Callagy

The County Manager’s Office is responsible for the efficient day-to-day operations of San Mateo County’s government and carries out the vision and policies set by the Board of Supervisors.

Here is Dan Noyes Report and Video.
