Mr. Stogner, 

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines that predates the January 27, 2022 agreement I produced to you.  There was no written agreement prior to January 13, 2022 at 6PM, and there is no separate Financial Agreement.  Because Mr. Brown is not a County employee, I cannot know what he meant in his blog post, but as far as we are aware, he was not referring to a written record.

Thank you,

Caiti

The reason I asked for this document is simple, every time someone gives me more than $10,000,000 of something I like to have some kind written verification, proof, evidence etc that I in fact do have the authority to distribute this PPE which was paid for with FEMA money.

It took San Mateo County Government 90 days to say the truth.

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022.

San Mateo County Supervisors Appoint John Nibbelin as County Counsel.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC County Counsel John Nibbelin
The Board of Supervisors unanimously selected Nibbelin as County Counsel, the top legal post. 
John Nibbelin says he’s ready to help make his community a “fairer, safer and healthier place” in his new role as the County’s chief legal officer. 

How does County Counsel John Nibbelin plan to accomplish that goal?

SMC Governments Video of the Special Meeting February 23, 2022

I couldn’t get the video to work see if you can?

The announcement came out February 28, 2022, 5 days after the meeting.

Was the public involved in this appointment?

Maybe John Nibblin can answer the easiest question that has remained unanswered since January 13, 2022. Who from San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management gave the PPE to James Brown the President of Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022?

According to San Mateo County Organizational Chart, County Counsel works for the Residents.

Mike Callagy, Ask James Brown, Who gave him the PPE on or before January 13, 2022?

James Brown is the President of Wine Country Marines a 501C in Sonoma, California.

On January 13, 2022 at 6:00PM posted this on WCM Facebook page.

I must admit I don’t think I had ever heard of James Brown, Wine Country Marines or San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management.

Supervisor Carole Groom, Who gave James Brown the $10M of PPE on or before January 13, 2022?

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Carole Groom

On January 13, 2022 the 501C Wine Country Marines President James Brown posted on Facebook that thanks to San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management for the Generous Donation of a Large amount of PPE.

I’m asking you to call James Brown and ask him who at San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management DEM gave him the more than $10M of PPE.

This one persons identity has failed to surface since the Wine Country Marines Facebook page was posted at 6:00 PM on January 13, 2022. I think even you would admit that is a long time and a lot of work and energy to avoid the obvious.

Make the call, provide the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents with the name of the person who gave James Brown the PPE on or before January 13, 2022.

Supervisor President Don Horsley on the 501C given the PPE. “Buckets do fine with water.”

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC President of Supervisors Don Horsley

BOS Meeting January 25, 2022 Item 12 3:29:00 mark

3:33:12 mark Don Horsley says: “Remember alot of this is cleaning supplies, Buckets and Mops.” Mops do fine with water.”

Question for President of the Supervisors Don Horsley? Who at San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management gave the PPE to James Brown President of the 501C Wine Country Marines before he posted on Facebook January 13, 2022 at 6PM about the generous donation?

What percentage of the More than $10,000,000 of PPE was Buckets and Mops?

Does anybody in San Mateo County think for a moment the Former Sheriff of San Mateo County and now President of the Board of Supervisors Don Horsley doesn’t know exactly who gave the more than $10M of PPE to James Brown on or before January 13, 2022?

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

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor David Canepa

On Thursday January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes interviewed Supervisor David Canepa about the More than $10,000,000.00 of PPE left outside the San Mateo County Event Center for several months unprotected.

San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa told the I-Team, “It’s because of your investigation, because of your investigation, that we have to acknowledge that we made a mistake. And the public needs to know that a mistake was made.” Looks like it wasn’t a mistake, now what?

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

Mike Callagy is San Mateo County Manager. He is trained how Not to answer a simple question.

DAN NOYES: “Can you give me an idea of the amount of money we’re talking?”

MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. There’s a lot of PPE out there.”

Mike 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 — a massive waste of your tax dollars that the county promises won’t happen again.

Who ordered the “convoy of garbage trucks” What date or dates did that occur? What evidence is there that the trucks made it to the Dump.

These interviews took place on January 13, 2022. At 6:00 P.M. the same day James Brown of the Wine Country Marines announces on their Facebook page that San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management just gave him a boatload of PPE. That announcement was made 12 minutes before the ABC 7 I Team’s report was made public. That is Warp Speed in my opinion.

Stop any more of the PPE from leaving the SMC Convention Center right this minute.

This is the James Brown who was just given $10M of PPE

“Wine Country Marines” James Brown mentions “Money Laundering”

By Michael G. Stogner

I see “$10M CASH” of “federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions” I don’t see a big mess, I don’t see “Surplus”

Money Laundering was the first thought that came to my mind, when I read and watched ABC 7 News report.

This is from ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes who first reported this Thursday January 13, 2022 at 6:12 P.M.

“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, but what we do want to do is get this into the hands of any organization that serves the community. If you’re out there serving the homeless or doing a food kitchen or a shelter, if you’re treating patients, any of that.”

Who in San Mateo County Government gave James Brown the $10,000,000 of PPE aka federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions?

This action happened before January 13, 2022 at 6:00 P.M. When Wine Country Marines Facebook page said

Large Donation of PPE

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.

So James Brown (whoever he is) announced San Mateo County Graciously Donated to the (Wine Country Marines) whoever they are the $10,000,000.00 of PPE. 12 minutes before Dan Noyes reported the story.

Dan Noyes ABC 7 News was first to report this on January 13, 2022

Dan Noyes Investigative Reporter for ABC 7 reported on Thursday January 13, 2022 that $10M of PPE was moved outside of a secure location at the San Mateo County Convention Center. The reason given for the move was to use that space for a really cool convention held in September. They NEVER moved the PPE back inside it remained outside for more than 3 months. But here is what San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy did do right after Dan Noyes report went public, He gave away the $10M of PPE, to the Wine County Marines. WHY so FAST? and WHY them?

Think about that, most Residents of San Mateo County didn’t know anything about Dan Noyes’s report 3 days ago. James Brown sure did, Mike Callagy sure did.

What date and time did County Manager Mike Callagy give the $10M PPE away?

Stop the Give Away TODAY.
