When it comes to elections – is San Francisco that much smarter than San Mateo County.. or is SMC simply corrupted ?
Supervisor David Canepa, Please pretend you are interested. Chinedu Oboki was murdered there is nothing more important.
Yesterday I almost interrupted several speakers at the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Meeting during the Public Comment period to wait until Supervisor Canepa was finished fidgeting and could look them in the eye. As it turned out he was unable to do that for the speakers talking about the Murder of Chinedu Oboki by 5 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. I knew what the speakers had sacrificed to get to this meeting to stand up in public and share their thoughts for 2 minutes. Some for the first time in their life, speaking to the elected leaders of their County, the Supervisors the name says it all.
I have spoken to the Board of Supervisors for 19 years as have many Good Concerned Citizens. I chose not to speak about the Murder of Chinedu Oboki by a gang of San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies because of David Canepas’ behavior and disrespect to all of the speakers yesterday. There were several important subjects the public talked about yesterday. Mr. Canapa was able to look like he was interested for the others the SMC Employees just trying to earn a decent wage, The recount of the $2.4B Measure W by Mr. Puschendorf.
I know it is not comfortable to talk about murder in public, the speakers did an excellent job, sharing their sadness, outrage, and their demands for the obvious the release of all videos and audio recording today. The reason is simple the Sheriff and the District Attorney of San Mateo County made statements about a man that SMC murdered to make it look like somehow he deserved to be killed. The recordings which belong to the Public would answer those important points. The public does not feel safe or trust the statements of Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, and Coroner Robert Foucrault.
Release the recordings today, to verify if the Sheriff and District Attorney lied to the public. The gang members should be on administrative leave and stay home until the investigation is complete. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos has them working instead and one was on duty at the entrance to the 400 County Center Building yesterday to be in plain site as the speakers entered and had their belongings checked through the security. Sheriff Bolanos knows Steve Wagstaffe and John Warren are going to clear his team.
I couldn’t help but think “These are my People” yesterday. I’m talking about all the Good and Concerned Citizens that showed up to speak or just hold signs. I am not talking about the 5 Supervisors, County Manager, County Counsel, Sheriff or District Attorney.
Yesterday was a warning to the County Leaders both elected and appointed aka “Those Who Matter” This is a Critical Issue, Do your Job, Supervise Release the Recordings Today.
President of Supervisors Dave Pine should have remained quiet when the speakers finished, instead he showed the public all they needed to know by explaining what Wagstaffe was doing more delays.

December 4, 2018 Board of Supervisor Meeting, Heinz Puschendorf informed the Board of Supervisors that he will be requesting the recount of ballots for Measure W which passed by less than 500 votes out of 270,599. He asked the Supervisors to pay for the cost of the recount. He is also asking Mark Church how many ballots were printed? How many ballots were mailed? How many undervotes total? How many ballots were received at the absolute deadline on Friday Nov. 9, 2018?
This is nothing new or shocking for the residents of San Mateo County, Iv’e been reporting about this for 19 years. Look no further than Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, Jody L. Williams and x CEO Vungle Zain Jaffer criminal cases.

Yesterdays hearings 11/27/2008
To trigger a recount, a written request must be filed with the Elections Division within the five calendar days following the completion of the canvass. The request must specify on behalf of which position on a measure (affirmative or negative) it is filed. The request may, but need not, specify the order in which the precincts shall be recounted.
The recount would be public, conducted by a recount board consisting of four county voters appointed by the Chief Elections Officer. All ballots and any other relevant materials may be examined upon request, and the requestor may challenge any ballot for defects (ambiguity, incompleteness, etc.), with a final determination to be made by the Chief Elections Officer.
The requestor must, before the recount starts and then before each day it continues, deposit with the Elections Division a sum determined by the Chief Elections Officer as necessary to cover the daily expenses of the recount. If upon completion of the recount the requestor’s position on the measure wins out contra the official canvass, the requestor receives a complete refund; otherwise they only receive back whatever was not consumed by actual expenses.
I estimate that daily cost would be approximately $1,160 for one manual recount board. Additional boards can be requested. A computer recount cost is $300 per hour. Depending on the scope of the recount and other requests, there may be additional costs above and beyond the personnel costs listed above. Any additional costs will be mutually agreed to by the requesting party and the county before the recount is commenced.
The requestor can bring the recount to an end at any time. The results of a recount are declared null and void unless every vote in which the contest appeared is recounted.
I hope this information helps. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Everyone should support the recount no matter which way you voted, The Yes on W should support it after spending $1.5M and the No on W who raised $5,700. Level Playing Field
