San Mateo County Shelter in Place till May 3, 2020

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

Update: Louise Rogers Chief of Health stated 534 Tests Total in SMC through March 30, 2020.

According to the SMDJ article this morning wrote “The regional stay-at-home mandate will remain in place until at least May, said officials working diligently to ready San Mateo County for an expected surge in coronavirus cases.” It didn’t identify which SMC Government Officials made that order. I’ve asked County Manager Mike Callagy if it was him, or Dr. Scott Morrow?

Mike Callagy’s response “The orders come from the Health Officers in the Bay Area.  7 of them have come together to develop new and modify the old orders.  Dr. Morrow is the Health Officer for San Mateo County.”

One of the main unanswered questions for San Mateo County residents is How many COVID-19 tests have been taken to date? This is an important question. How many people in San Mateo County who have symptoms and went to Hospitals or Urgent Care locations and were sent home because no tests were available?

How many TESTS are available for the PUBLIC in San Mateo County Today?

There are 309 confirmed cases in San Mateo County, with six deaths linked to the disease. Callagy said officials are still gathering testing data which will help model a local curve of potential exposure and infection. Currently, he said the testing sample size is too small to be considered representative of the county. Why?

Mike Callagy said the business relief fund formed to aid local companies suffering in the wake of the shelter-in-place mandate is seeking donations as well. This is what the Board of Supervise gave $3M of taxpayer money to last week of course it wasn’t called that on the Agenda.

San Mateo County Election Results Extended 21 Days by Gov. Newsom.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: March 23, 2020 Mark Church says the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election will be Certified April 1, 2020 barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Public Trust is the Key to Government Functioning. That includes all branches, Sheriff , District Attorney, Judges, Probation, Public Health, County Manager, County Counsel and yes Elections.

Why did Mark Church stop publishing the vote tally? Santa Clara County has continued to update on the schedule they told the public they would.

What difference does it make you might ask? For Foster City Residents it makes a big difference having Herb Perez an elected official recalled remain in office until the vote is certified. For District 13 Senate Race where Sally Lieber is in second place behind Josh Becker in Santa Clara County and she is leading Alexander Glew by 8,499 votes there. This one Senate seat involves both San Mateo County & Santa Clara County. Most of the Political Players in SMC do not want Sally Lieber in the picture. I’ll just give one example the SMDJ with 84,000 viewers wrote an article on Feb. 3, 2020 just in time to influence mail in voters they did not mention Sally Lieber and a few others. They endorsed a candidate who is not in the running. Today Sally Lieber is 1,164 votes out of Second Place where top two vote getters go to the November Election.

The March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election results deadline has been extended 21 Days by Governor Gavin Newsom. So final results will be April 22, 2020. As you know Mark Church has not provided an update since March 13, 2020. He also doesn’t seem to know about this order. It’s not on his website.

Here is what is on SMC website March 22, 2020

Important Information about Election Results

The Registration & Elections Division will continue to process all ballots as normal. The election will be certified no later than April 1, 2020, within the statutory deadline. The next results report will be the official Statement of the Vote.

There was supposed to be a March 17, 2020 update.

San Mateo County Residents remember the recent Measure W passing in the last two days of Mark Church reporting. It failed every reporting date up to the last two….

Foster City Councilman Herb Perez Recalled

By Michael G, Stogner

San Mateo County Politician Herb Perez was Recalled March 3, 2020 and the results will be certified within 30 days of that date.

Herb Perez is a business owner and Councilman in Foster City who was about to be termed out. The political experts in the county suggested the concerned citizens who are the Only Oversight of elected officials in reality to let him get termed out and just don’t vote for him in the future. A Recall is expensive and very time consuming and the odds are it will fail.

Herb Perez responded to the Petition for Recall with this statement. “They cannot name a single wrongdoing.” Really did he watch their Videos?

Video of Wrongdoing

Video of Wrongdoing to the wrong woman Stacy Jimenez

During public meetings he has openly called residents fools, morons, miscreants, malfeasants and ultracrepidarians as a form of intimidation.

The recall effort was organized by a group called FC Watchdog, which accused Perez of “open disdain for residents” and pro-development agenda. Jeff Regan, an organizer for the recall, said about the recall effort, “It’s because when a resident goes up to speak publicly and gets treated with disdain — that blocks democracy and it’s an intimidation tactic. At a certain point, enough is enough.”

Tuesday’s election also chose his successor former police Capt. Jon Frooman

Herb Perez could have avoided having the title RECALLED added to his name & resume by simply being Civil, he choose not to. He chose to sue instead, file criminal allegations to the District Attorney’s Office who declined to move forward. He saw that more than 4,300 people signed the recall petition that is enough to pass the recall.

The question for the other elected officials who served with Herb Perez on the Foster City Council. Why was his behavior OK with you?

As of this afternoon there are 7,275 Yes votes to recall which is 77.28%

March 6, 2020 I had the privilege of attending the celebration and acknowledging of all the volunteers that made this result possible. I was impressed by the age swing from very young to the Seniors but most notable was the Women involved. One woman made the comment that she and her Granddaughter went door to door. I thought that was so cool. I also noticed that Reporter Annie Berman of KQED was the only other News Media that attended the most Important Election Story in San Mateo County this year for sure.

I couldn’t help but notice the absence of any San Mateo Daily Journal reporter at this event. Jerry Lee and Jon Mays chose not to cover it. Why?

“It is the mission of the Daily Journal to be the most accurate, fair and relevant local news source for those who live, work and play on the mid-Peninsula”

We are the Peninsula’s leading local news­paper and the Peninsula’s local news leader. In fact, the Daily Journal has been called “the de facto newspaper of record for San Mateo County.”

This explains it: Could your business use 83,450 new leads in one day from one of the most affluent areas of the nation? That’s what we do at the Daily Journal, we connect advertisers to our readers; it’s that simple.

One of the many lessons this Brave group of citizens learned in causing this Recall, It is Expensive to get your message out in a way to cause action. Think about that, The San Mateo Daily Journal claims to have 83,450 readers per day. This event was not Newsworthy to them.

There are still Legal Expenses to be paid, if you would like to contribute.

Congratulations to the Brave Residents of Foster City.

By Michael G. Stogner

Stacy Jimenez was the Recall Coordinator.

Most people are to busy, or don’t have enough information or desire to get involved to make a difference in San Mateo County Politics.

That is not what just happened in Foster City, Council member Herb Perez was RECALLED March 3, 2020. He was replaced by Jon Froomin.

Herb Perez said he did not commit any crimes and I would hope that is true, a recall has Nothing to do with criminal acts, that is for law enforcement a Recall is for the residents and voters its just that simple.

What Foster City just demonstrated could be duplicated at every City Council and the County Board of Supervisors, Sheriff & District Attorney Office.

This is what it takes.

From Stacy Jimenez:

I want to remind every courageous soul who signed the petition to recall Herb Perez that your signature is safe and confidential. It is a criminal offense to allow those signatures to be viewed by anyone other than the county officials tasked with signature verification and those initial 24 residents who signed the “Notice of Intent to Recall” Herb Perez will not be allowed to view the signatures, and his attempts to bully some of you into revoking your signature out of fear he will be able to view your signature has absolutely no merit. The county officials are incredibly professional and capable and they will not allow any lapse in protocol – they are not only required by law but committed to an ethical and legal process of signature count and verification.

Jeff Regan, an organizer for the recall, said about the recall effort, “It’s because when a resident goes up to speak publicly and gets treated with disdain — that blocks democracy and it’s an intimidation tactic. At a certain point, enough is enough.”

This is how you do it Recall Video
