Daly City Manager Shawanna Maltbie, and others are being asked to resign today. Not the first time.

By Michael G. Stogner

City Manager Shawanna Maltbie

Background April 7, 2021 Roger Allen was shot and killed by Daly City Police Department, he was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck. Nobody requested the Police to show up. 4 Officers did and surrounded the vehicle. The Official report from Chief of Police Patrick Hensley and approved by Shawanna Maltbie was “They were there to Help.” That was the first time I had heard of Daly City Police Officers “We are here to Help” on what normally would be a AAA call to fix a flat tire.

Shawanna Maltbie the City Manager is responsible for the behavior of the Police Department, (What I mean by that is the City Manager can Fire the Police Chief and she could have named the 4 Officers the very first day of the Homicide, She simply chose not to.) and serves at the pleasure of the City Council. This was just demonstrated to all SMC Residents by the Foster City Gang of 3 (G3) when they FIRED Dr. Peter Prinejad, August 25, 2021, their recently hired City Manager for NO CAUSE.

Daly City has NO Councilmember at this time who thinks Shawanna Maltbie should be fired. That is why Public is now speaking up. The Public is responsible for how their Government acts.

Per the The Public’s demands from The Daly City Council Meeting from this past Monday, September 13, 2021, The Daly City Public will be visiting Daly City Hall, Today, September 20th, around 11:30 AM to confirm resignation of all Daly City Council Members, City Manager, Assistant City Manager, City Clerk and Police Chief.
These demands were made at the 2:41:49 mark.

Daly City Council Meeting September 13, 2021

Video of Daly Cily Police Officers “We are here to Help.”

The next step and really the only one that will make an impact on Daly City Government is for the Public to organize and RECALL at least 3 of the 5 Councilmembers. Can it be done? Just look to the residents of Foster City who successfully RECALLED the Vice Mayor Herb Perez, not that long ago.

Foster City, Questions remain about the August 25, 2021, Closed Session Meeting.

By Michael G. Stogner

I have asked the City of Foster City who was responsible for placing it on the Agenda for both August 25, and August 31, 2021 Closed Session Meetings? There has been no response to those questions.

Good morning Jennifer, I do have another question or possibly two, can you tell me which City Council member requested the Closed Session Meeting on August 25, 2021 and August 31, 2021?
Thank You

I asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy (a Foster City resident on the Citizen Ad Hoc Committee) if any of the councilmembers contacted him prior to them firing Dr. Peter Pirnejad?

Hi Mike,I heard about his firing from another city manager a few days after he was fired. We were at lunch.  I was not aware there was a closed session on this matter.  In fact you are the first I heard that from.  Though I asked that Peter sit on a panel for a discussion on equity awhile back, I never really had an opportunity to get to know him. Best regards,

Hello Mike,
Did anybody from Foster City contact you in advance of the August 25, 2021 Closed Session Meeting that resulted in Dr. Peter Prinejad being terminated.
Do you have any comment on this Termination especially since the Assistant City Manager just left that position a couple of weeks prior?
Thank You

I asked San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe if any of the Foster City Councilmembers contacted his office to make a criminal complaint against Dr. Peter Pirnejad the New City Manager of Foster City?

Stephen Wagstaffe <swagstaffe@smcgov.org>To:Michael Stogner Sat, Sep 4 at 11:52 AM

Good morning Michael,

No.  Everything I have heard about the situation is what I have read in your reports.

Thanks

Steve

Good morning Steve,

Did any of Foster City council members file a criminal complaint against Dr. Peter Pirnejad?

Did anybody for that matter?

Thank You

Michael

Just because you have the authority to do something (Fire/Terminate) doesn’t mean that you should, or that it is the right or decent action to take. Super Majority Vote should be considered by the residents. This was clearly an issue between only 3 of the 5 council members. Mayor Sanjay Gehani, F.C. Councilman Jon Froomin voted against the firing of Dr. Peter Pirnejad.

Foster City Council Moving Fast, Interim City Manager.

By Michael G. Stogner

Tonight 6:00 PM Another Closed Session Meeting.

You will remember it was just a few days ago Richa Awasthi, Sam Hindi, Patrick Sullivan voted to FIRE Dr. Peter Pirnejad, the newly hired City Manager, in a Closed Session Meeting on August 25, 2021. Mayor Sanjay Gehani and councilmemberJon Froomin voted against that.

Tonight in another closed session meeting, guess what they are going to do? Fill that position with the person they planned to fill it with all along.

Why didn’t they just appoint this person at the August 25, 2021 Closed Session Meeting?

What about the wasting of Police Chief Tracy Avelar’s time and energy, as she was just appointed acting City Manager and given a 5% raise with the new title, or the Citizens Ad Hoc Committee, which vetted Dr. Peter Pirnejad which included San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy. I can confirm the that Mike Callagy had no idea that there was any problem with Dr. Peter Pirnejad with the three councilmembers, and he was completely unaware of the August 25, 2021 Closed Session Meeting which resulted in City Manager being Fired without cause.

This has been a Very Expensive adventure that the Taxpayers of Foster City get to pay, the Nine month salary and benefits to Dr. Pirnejad is about $270,000 plus the Fee to Avery & Associates $23,400 the Recruitment Hiring Firm.

AGENDA

CLOSED SESSION

4.1. Public Employment (Government Code § 54957) 

Title: Interim City/District Manager 

Residents might want to make a comment tonight, before the meeting takes place.

Something for the Foster City Residents to think about is this, If there was really something wrong with the hire of Dr. Peter Pirnejad the VOTE would have been 5-0 in favor of firing him. It wasn’t, it was 3-2 with 3 yes votes to terminate.

Foster City, Who’s Flying the Plane?

By Michael G. Stogner

Hindi, Awasthi, Sullivan, The Residents want Decency.

It wasn’t that long ago that a group of Foster City residents got together and said Enough is Enough. They organized, collected signatures, put a Recall measure on the ballot, and removed the Vice Mayor, from office, and they were SUCCESSFUL Why? Lack of Decency, that’s why. They wanted their Elected Officials to behave in a respectful and decent manner at all times, especially towards members of the public.

de·cen·cy/ˈdēsənsē/Learn to pronouncenoun

  1. behavior that conforms to accepted standards of morality or respectability.

The residents of Foster City have demonstrated before their demand for Honesty and Decency.

This story is at the very beginning it is about San Mateo County Politics and Those Who Matter vs. the Residents.

What was so important to remove the Recently Hired City Manager at this moment in time when the Assistant City Manager had just left Foster City 2 weeks ago, and has not been replaced. That equals a Leadership vacuum that was self inflicted by Hindi, Awasthi, and Sullivan. They have caused their City to be missing the two Full time employees who run the City.

Surely they must have a plan that they just haven’t shared yet, and the public looks forward to learning about it.

Imagine being on a 747 flight from SFO to Hawaii and you’ve just been informed that your Pilot and Co-Pilot are No Longer Flying the plane.
