NF433910-A, 9:00 AM 2G Hon. Judge Joseph Scott NO ZOOM.

Update: April 7, 2022 10:00 AM, Next Court date is June 24, 2022 9:00 AM

July 25, 2022 set for Trial

By Michael G. Stogner

Hon. Judge Joseph Scott

I have been reporting on this case for more than SEVEN years know. I have described it as the Most Exciting Criminal Case I have ever observed. It is the BEST single example of Organized Crime and Corruption in San Mateo County Government that I have ever witnessed.

Notice the case number NF433910-A there is not a two digit number at the front. Those two digits tell you what YEAR this case started. For example San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez’s criminal case started in 2014 so you would expect to see a 14 in front of NF433910-A. If the 14 was there that would make a reasonable person to ask, Why has this Criminal Case NOT gone to Jury Trial in more than SEVEN years. How much Taxpayer money has the Government Invested in this case and What was the Money Spent On? Look at $ spent to make sure Witnesses Never take the stand.

This would be a Prefect case for Supervisor David Canepa and Candidate for Congress 2022 to attend. I’m sure he would be interested in Eliminating Corruption in San Mateo County.

SMC Supervisor David Canepa
Juan P. Lopez

Juan Pablo Lopez has always wanted the same thing, a Jury Trail of his peers and the Public able to see/hear the proceedings. Hon Judge Joseph Scott is NOT allowing that to happen during a Pandemic. He is demanding NO ZOOM available to the PUBLIC.

San Mateo County ISD Organizational Chart.

By Michael G. Stogner

Transparency is a Good thing. Where did the Chart go?

If this doesn’t make the 760,000 Residents of San Mateo County feel completely at ease, I don’t know what would. It’s just all of the DATA in SMC.

ISD Org. Chart

Don’t forget former President of the BOS and now Candidate for Congress David Canepa is busy FUNDRAISING instead of taking care of San Mateo County Business, which is what you elected him to do.

The Six Candidates for Supervisor are Silent on Mike Callagy and the More than $10M in PPE. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

The right candidate has NOT surfaced yet, they have until March 16, 2022 to file.

San Mateo County Manager/Purchasing Agent/Clerk to the Board of Supervisors Mike Callagy is an At-Will Employee of the Supervisors. Everybody knows that.

Steven Booker, Noelia Corzo, Laura Parmer-Lohan, Virginia Chang Kiraly, Ray Mueller and Charles Stone, are all candidates for the District 2&3 Supervisor of San Mateo County in the June 7, 2022 election.

San Mateo County Government still has not made the January 25, 2022 Supervisor Meeting Public.

Of Interest is Agenda Item 12 watch the 4 Supervisors Violate their Oath.

Board of Supervisors Authorizes County to Distribute Surplus Safety Equipment 

June 25, 2022
Redwood City — Dozens of nonprofit organizations and government agencies will receive surplus gowns, goggles and cleaning materials initially purchased for COVID-19 protection following the Board of Supervisors today authorizing the county manager to distribute the supplies. 

Last fall, approximately $7 million worth of supplies stored at the San Mateo Event Center were left outdoors during a rainstorm. The County of San Mateo purchased this equipment early in the pandemic when jurisdictions across the country were competing to secure the materials needed to keep the community and frontline workers safe in the midst of uncertain circumstances. Most of these non-medical-grade supplies were individually wrapped in plastic inside the boxes that got wet and were not damaged. The Board’s direction at today’s meeting authorizes County staff to begin distributing the still-usable equipment to organizations in need.

“While we deeply regret the damage that occurred during last fall’s rainy season, we are grateful the vast majority of the supplies are still usable and can support purposes including wildfire clean up, disaster relief and other emergency response efforts,” said County Manager Mike Callagy. “As we move forward, we encourage local community-based organizations that have a need for these supplies to reach out with their request as we are committed to deploying these supplies in ways that protect the well-being and safety of the community.”

The County is working with the nonprofit Wine Country Marines to distribute these resources to other organizations and government agencies, including entities in San Mateo County, who can use them for a variety of purposes. The County will also work with other organizations who can use the materials and meet the appropriate criteria. Any damaged packaging and unusable supplies will be disposed of properly.

“We, and the groups we partner with, are grateful that the County of San Mateo is dedicated to finding new purposes for this equipment rather than see it destroyed or go unused,” said James Brown, president of Wine Country Marines, a Sonoma-based charity with Bay Area and nationwide networks, and himself a San Mateo County resident.

The supplies designated today as surplus were intended for use by individuals working in medical congregant settings early in the pandemic if hospitals became totally overwhelmed — a situation that fortunately never occurred. In the months prior to the supplies being moved outdoors, the County also worked with the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) to offer these surplus supplies free of charge to health care providers and other government agencies, including schools, and other jurisdictions, but few accepted the offer because sizes, quantities and other considerations made them less appropriate. County officials expressed gratitude that organizations can now use them for a variety of safety uses.

“Yes, we made a mistake. Humans make mistakes. But the important thing is that we owned up to it and thankfully are finding that these supplies do not need to go to waste,” said County Supervisor Carole Groom.

Board President Don Horsley added that the Board wants to understand — just as much as residents do — how the situation occurred and identify ways to prevent future errors. He also said this event does not take away from the fact that the County, in obtaining the supplies in the first place, was motivated by a desire to keep the community safe.

“In the darkest days, when we didn’t know what supplies we’d be able to get and just how much we’d need, the County did everything in its power to purchase what we could to keep us safe. In hindsight, we didn’t need it and organizations we tried sharing it with didn’t need it either. I am just glad to see that it can still address important needs,” Horsley said.

The County maintains a separate collection of medical-grade personal protective equipment for first-responders or other front-line workers, and damages from this incident did not impact the County’s COVID-19 response efforts.

Organizations and government agencies interested in receiving supplies should address inquiries to “Supply Manager” at

San Mateo County Elected Officials Refuse to Stop the $10 M PPE from leaving SMC Event Center.

By Michael G. Stogner

First step is to STOP the PPE from leaving, you have 5 days to accomplish that.

Under California law, “thieves cannot pass good title to anyone, including a good faith purchaser,”

SMC Event Center DANA STOEHR: “It’s, it was fully taken care of exactly the way it should have been.”

On Thursday January 13, 2022 San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy told ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes: Callagy told us he didn’t know about all that PPE that’s been deteriorating outside for months until I called. He immediately ordered county workers to bring the supplies back inside, to run an inventory and see how much of it is salvageable.

A source tells the I-Team a convoy of garbage trucks filled up with brand new PPE and took it to the dump, in the past two months.

On Thursday January 13, 2022 Dan Noyes quoted James Brown of the Wine Country Marines who said.”And so every single piece is being inspected and right now, we’re running over 90% that we’re finding is still in good, perfect condition,”

Who is James Brown and how and when did he get access to the PPE?

On Thursday January 13, 2022 we know that the $10,000,000.00 of FEMA PPE is worth $9,000,000.00 according to James Brown.

Did James Brown order the Convoy? A source tells the I-Team a convoy of garbage trucks filled up with brand new PPE and took it to the dump, in the past two months. What date did this convoy of garbage trucks allegedly happen. Where was the final destination? You would think a garbage truck would go to the DUMP, This is very easy to confirm if that actually happened.

Who ordered it? What time did the Convoy arrive at SMC Event Center? What time did the Convoy leave? How many trucks made up the Convoy? Who prepared the PPE for pickup? What time was it picked up? and Where did the Convoy take it? What time were the trucks available for the next service call?

If you go to Wine County Marines Facebook page you will see the January 13, 2022 6:00 P.M. announcement of the generous donation by San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management of the FEMA PPE. That’s James Brown’s website. The veterans’ advocacy group will be giving it all away to qualified groups on January 25 by appointment only.

James Brown mentions Money Laundering is his statement: “We don’t want anybody to take this and put it on eBay because that’s in essence money laundering, you’re taking federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions and you’re turning it into cash for you,” Brown said, continuing, “We’re not going to allow that.”

James Brown is also the CEO of West Coast Security Inc. of San Carlos, San Mateo County

Why give James Brown $9,000,000.00?

I asked Michelle Durand San Mateo County Chief Communications Officer County Manager’s Office for the Donation Document of the PPE to Wine Country Marines, here it is: No Response yet.

Michelle Durand <>To: Michael Stogner Mon, Jan 17 at 1:15 PM

Hello Michelle,

I hope things are going well for you.

Could you please send me a copy of the Donation agreement to Wine County Marines, James Brown mentioned on his Facebook page January 13, 2022 6:00 PM

The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated to the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

Thank You, Stay Safe

  • Good morning Don,
    Congratulations on being named the President of the Board of Supervisors this year.
    I’m asking you to step in as the President of the BOS and halt any PPE from leaving the Event Center at this time.

  • It’s the right thing to do.

    San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa calls it a Mistake. What if it was deliberate?
SMC Manager Mike Callagy

Something to think about San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy works at the pleasure of the 5 Supervisors. He should have resigned by now on his own. All Five of the Supervisors support him.

Aldon Smith, x49er, xRaider, xSeahawks, xDallas Cowboy, in San Mateo County Court Today.

By Michael G. Stogner


Aldon Smith needs HELP not Enablers.

TMZ Sports was first to report his December 6, 2021 arrest by the CHP in Redwood City,

Details surrounding the arrest are unclear.” Welcome to San Mateo County, That is the first of many RED FLAGS.

Aldon Smith might have been kicked off of several NFL TEAMS but he is on the “Those Who Matter” TEAM, in SMC. That is the Last Thing he needs.

His Defense Attorney Joshua Bentley is most likely on his cell phone speed dial. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe numbers are on Joshua Bentley’s speed dial.

TMZ reported “Details surrounding the arrest are unclear.” How is that possible in 2021. What could be unclear about an arrest that takes place around 2:30 PM and Booked in jail at 7:38 PM. Where was Aldon Smith for those 5 hours?

What date and time did San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provide the 760,000 residents with a Press/News Release of Aldon Smith’s ARREST for DUI BAC .288 which is over 3 times the legal limit? Sheriff Bolanos Never did provide that information, WHY?

In 2018 Aldon Smith was arrested for DUI with a BAC of .40 which is 5 times the legal limit, and that happened with him wearing a SCRAM device.

Why did San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe file this FELONY criminal case as a Misdemeanor? 21-SM-014538-A The People of the State of California vs. Aldon Jacarus Ramon Smith

The “Those Who Matter” TEAM also includes Superior Court of California County of San Mateo Judges.

November 22, 2021 the Court Public Access Telephone Service has been discontinued. The SMC Judges Invite you to attend in PERSON. I recommend any member of the public who is considering going into the 400 County Center Building, in Redwood City, California, First Google the word PANDEMIC.

This case is being heard at 9:00 AM in Courtroom 8B by the Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt.

Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt is the Judge that on July 2, 2018 GRANTED the San Mateo County District Attorney Office MOTION to DISMISS the ENTIRE Zainali Jaffer criminal case AFTER it had already had a Preliminary Hearing and evidence and testimony was heard and ALL CHARGES were approved.

Don’t expect this Felony Criminal Case to go much different, than the Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI case, the Zainali Jaffer Criminal Case, or the San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement & Money Laundering Criminal Case with Barbara Bonilla being the only person charged when there were others.

I’ll post update as soon as I get it.

Kevin Mullin didn’t say a word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by 6 SMC Employees.

By Michael G. Stogner

Kevin Mullin did not attend or make a public comment at any of the many meetings the Board of Supervisors made available to the public to discuss, Excessive Use of Tasers, Excessive Use of Force, Failure to provide Medical Aid after killing Chinedu Okobi. He did not attend any of the many Concerned Citizens gatherings at the killing site in Millbrae/San Bruno.

Chinedu V. Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by Law Enforcement. Both of the Deaths were ruled a Homicide by the local Coroner. The Four Officers responsible for George Floyd’s Homicide were fired and Criminally Charged. The Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees who are responsible for Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide are all working and None of them have been criminally charged with anything.

Here is Kevin’s PR piece on voting. You will notice he can’t even mention George Floyd’s Name. “most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement.” That could be Hundreds of young Black/Brown Men around America.

I can say this as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years Kevin Mullin is the norm for Elected Officials in SMC.

I know of only one San Mateo County Elected Official that Publicly Questioned, was Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered. That should have been the Obvious question every single elected official should want the answer to.

Sabrina Brennan was that Elected Official. She attended meetings and gatherings.


America is confronting an unprecedented “trifecta” that is dominating our daily headlines: A COVID-19 pandemic, a deep recession and most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, illustrative of systemic racism and injustice that has spawned a season of multiracial protests and calls for needed social change. Yet, while the nation is reeling from these crises, duplicitous messaging is being deployed by the occupant of the Oval Office to actively undermine the results of this November’s election: that voting by mail can’t be trusted, that widespread voter fraud exists, and that mail balloting is designed specifically to elect his opponent: FALSE.

Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed ballots, in all 50 states, according to the Vote at Home Institute with only a handful of fraudulent votes cast. Election law expert and U.C. Irvine professor Richard L. Hasen notes, it is still more likely for an American to be struck by lightning than to commit mail-voting fraud. In addition, there is no evidence to suggest that voting by mail benefits any particular political party.

San Mateo County has shown that voting-by-mail works. My legislation to make San Mateo County an all-mail ballot pilot county demonstrated that the participating electorate more closely resembles the public at large in terms of its diversity and representation, with young people, and voters of color in particular more likely to cast ballots. Thanks to my colleague, Assemblyman Marc Berman’s legislation recently signed into law, this November’s election in California will be an all-mailed-ballot election. Every voter automatically will receive a ballot, postage paid, with community-level “vote centers” as back-up. Voting by mail is the most efficient and effective way to conduct an inclusive and participatory election.

So-called “red and blue” states alike have employed voting-by-mail, but the way states have approached elections administration varies greatly. Elections are fundamentally state and locally administered, and recent examples of mismanagement during primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia remind us of the challenges facing election administrators across the country. This is a highly charged political atmosphere with huge stakes on the line.

There is a growing recognition that the pandemic must force changes in how elections work, and better ensure more participation moving forward. Attempts to help fund elections with federal dollars have fallen woefully short of what is needed to ensure free and fair elections across America. Since the Bush-Gore contested election in 2000, the efficacy of voting mechanisms and machinery have taken center stage. More recently, we are seeing a coordinated misinformation campaign to attack the integrity of, and undermine the public’s faith in, our elections. False narratives abound, and voter suppression, which disproportionally disenfranchises communities of color, is real and we all suffer the consequences as a result.

While voting-by-mail works, it is not perfect. Signature-matching issues have led to ballots not being counted, a concern that is actively being addressed in California. One other legitimate drawback to voting at home is the time it takes local elections’ officials to count waves of mail ballots and certify the election. The current administration is preemptively trying to undermine faith in the eventual vote count and may try to exploit delays in vote tabulation to question the legitimacy of results, triggering a constitutional crisis. While the long wait for vote-by-mail results is not ideal, it’s in the interest of every vote being counted, which is fundamental to our democracy.

During this tense time when we need leaders who can calm, heal, and build faith, the president has used this period to further divide people and incite violence, all while callously attacking the basic underpinnings of our democracy, like faith in and respect for the work of journalists — essentially a broadside on the First Amendment. The work of journalists and the social media platforms themselves have never been more important in fact checking false claims and advertisements with false information.

Vote as if democracy itself, and its pillars like a free press, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, including the right of every citizen to vote, is on the ballot. Because it is.


Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, is speaker pro tempore of the California Assembly and represents San Mateo County’s 22nd Assembly District.

I asked San Mateo County Citizen Advocate Brent Turner for comment on Kevin Mullin Opinion Piece.

Brent Turner

The VOTE BY MAIL  act  is  innocuous to the degree that it reiterates voting by mail procedures. We have used absentee ballots for many years. What is NOT innocuous is the removal of polling places from communities of color. Though Mindy Romero and other experts have declined to state it clearly,  the added travel distance to some of these community residents results in a veritable “poll tax ” and leads to further disenfranchisement, . Subjective signature disqualification also creates opportunity for disenfranchisement and was predicted by election experts

The bill originally emanated from the ” Colorado Model ”  of elections and was  promulgated by Colorado based vendor DOMINION  The act is notorious not for what it mandates but what it ignores. The fact there is ZERO mention of the software used to tabulate the votes creates a severe point of misdirection to the layperson voter.  This is unfortunate as the authors of the bill positioned it as a security measure when this  is not the case. The authors were briefed extensively but chose to omit the work of the open source software security experts.

Julia Streeter for Supervisor of San Mateo County.

 By Michael G. Stogner

I’ve said for a long time if you just replace all five Supervisors with good Human-beings the County residents would benefit immediately. I realize there might need to be an age requirement wavier but I recommend Julia for Supervisor. She sent this letter to City of Foster City Manager.

Good evening Mr. Hall,

My name is Julia Streeter, and I am an independent girl scout Troop 96389. 

I am a 6th grader at Bowditch and I would like to organize a protest in Foster City focusing on black inequality. I’m inspired to do this because there are peaceful protests all around the bay area, but there has yet to be one in Foster City, and I think it would be a good idea to show support for black people in our community too.

I was thinking the route would start at City Hall and go around the block down Foster City Blvd towards Beach Park turning towards Shell, and then turning at the back entrance of the library and ending at the Police Department. This route would stay on the sidewalk and avoid crossing any major intersections. I don’t know how many people will be there but without advertising it publically, I already have 50 people interested. These people consist of both kids and their parents. I assume there will be teenagers interested, too, who may attend without their parents but with their permission.

I can update you later when I have a better idea of everyone who’s coming. I was hoping this could be from 4:00 to 5:00 pm on Thursday or Friday. I’ll encourage people to have posters pre-made prior to the start of the protest and plan on giving them instructions beforehand and a speech afterward.
I was also wondering if I need any permits or if there are any requirements that I need to follow? Do you have any suggestions on how to make this protest safer?

Thank you for your time and stay safe,
Julia Streeter

Some of you might RECALL Julia was instrumental in the successful recall of an Elected Official in San Mateo County recently.
