Lets Compare Medaria Arradondo to Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Both are leaders of Law Enforcement Agencies. Medaria Arradondo Minneapolis Police Chief, Carlos G. Bolanos Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Both had In-Custody Homicides of citizens of unarmed men.

George Floyd there was a call to police regarding a misdemeanor $20 fraud.

Chinedu V. Okobi No call to police, no crime committed, just walking on sidewalk in Millbrae.

Medaria Arradondo Minneapolis Police Chief fired all four Police Officers within 24 hours.

Carlos G. Bolanos Sheriff of San Mateo County California issued two False News Releases within hours and fired nobody.

Several False statements in this one document.
Sheriff Bolanos knows there is a 6th Employee Involved.

Sheriff Activities League is a Division of Sheriff’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner

The Attorney General Embezzlement Investigation of San Mateo County Sheriff Office Division started who knows when. Sheriff Activities League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla was escorted from her office located at 3551 Edison Way, Redwood City, California on February 10, 2020. The Sheriff’s Office has reported she has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office which is unusual since she has not been charged with any crime yet.

Also Sheriff Bolanos daughter Ashley Bolanos was an assistant to the director at the Sheriff’s Activity League for 3 years. She is now a 911 Dispatcher making $155,000 per year.

A reasonable person would expect Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankswade to issue a News Release on February 10th or 11th, not the case. You would expect all five SMC Supervisors to express their shock and dismay at this news. Not the case.

I asked Warren Slocum SMC President of the Board of Supervisors for a comment.

Morning Michael.
As this is a personnel matter, it would be inappropriate to comment. But I do appreciate you reaching out.

Supervisor Don Horsley Embarrassed and Ashamed.Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Don Horsley

San Mateo County Board of Supervisor meeting June 2, 2020 at the 40:10 mark, Supervisor Horsley said “My reaction as somebody who was in Law Enforcement when I saw that Murder of George Floyd I was embarrassed & ashamed.” He went on to say. “I’m not going to bash Law Enforcement.”

BOS meeting June 2, 2020

I have personally asked former School Teacher and Sheriff now Supervisor Don Horsley if he has watched the video of Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018. He has refused to answer my question.

Video created by SMC Government made public 5 months after Homicide

You will notice the Government does not mention the word Homicide. They have known it was a Homicide since Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz determined the Manner of Death to be Homicide on December 31, 2018

“HOMICIDE PROTOCOL” 36-year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Deputies.

Supervisor Don Horsley has a long history of saying words that are not consistent with the truth/reality. That includes under oath, August 2, 2004 a Federal Hearing held in San Mateo, California.

The residents of San Mateo County should have the Attorney General of California give a second opinion on the Six Sheriff Employees, Homicide of Chinedu Okobi.

Her name was Sandra Lee Harmon. It could have been Errol, Yanira, Chinedu and many others.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Lee Harmon



San Mateo County Supervisors do your job, Supervise.
Release the Videos Today.

It’s been 5 days since Sandra Lee Harmon was killed. The names of the Deputies involved have not been released, the Videos, Audios, 911 call transcripts, name of Hospital, who provided life saving measures and for how long. What type of Shot gun, single barrel? Double barrel? How did it get on the ground? Did she comply with the orders to Put the gun down? Did she fire first? the video and audio would solve that question?

There is a slight possibility that the Sheriff’s Office story is true but the past behavior in Homicide by Law Enforcement (Okobi) is the example the residents of San Mateo County should Not believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says or provides in a News Release.

The only fact that we know is that she was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in the back parking lot of 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California early evening on May 5, 2020.

San Mateo County Sheriff Office issued a tweet “Upon arrival, Deputies gave her multiple verbal commands to drop her weapon. She did not comply and fired her shotgun at Deputies. Deputies returned fire, striking the woman.  Following lifesaving efforts on-scene, she was transported to the hospital and succumbed to her injuries.”

If that sounds familiar it should, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Press Releases. Always make the deceased look guilty.

October 3, 2018 the Sheriff Office News Release issued just hours after the Chinedu Okobi Homicide by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees.

“The deputy exited his vehicle to contact the suspect and the suspect immediately assaulted the deputy.” ” The suspect was also transported to the hospital where it was later learned that he died. Both of these are completely False statements remained on SMC website for 5 months.

October 3, 2018 Sheriff’s Office issued a second News Release where they Omitted the sixth SMC Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales.

Sheriff’s deputy Mehn Trieu arrived at the scene alone and fired a single shot within 20 seconds of exiting his vehicle. After he met with his attorneys he made this statement. Seeing “Yanira SerranoGarcia put the fear of God in him.

Errol Chang was killed by Daly City Swat Team called by Pacifica Police. They got tried of waiting, ordered into the tiny house.

San Mateo County residents you have 5 elected people who are responsible for this result reoccurring. They are the Supervisors.

Her family is requesting financial help at this time Bringing Sandie Home.

San Mateo County Citizen Oversight FC- Watchdog has more work to do.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is the group of ordinary citizens that successfully recalled a San Mateo County Elected Official named Herb Perez a Foster City Councilman. One of the items that came up during the Recall Campaign was an Unpaid Sponsorship Fees bill for $17,090.00. So now you have the Government of Foster City giving the RECALLED Politician a Gift of $10,000 and there is no evidence that he has paid or started to pay the previous debt.

Everybody in the Government knows why Herb Perez was RECALLED, the Question is Who approved Gold Medal to receive a $10,000 check in light of the above?

FC-Watchdog submitted a Public Records Act request to the city to inquire about which small businesses received $10,000 from the Business Resiliency fund assistance from Foster City? We received a list today today showing that Gold Medal Martial Arts is a recipient of this fund. We are troubled by this for the following reasons:

Did Gold Medal pay the $17,000 city invoice sent in January for unpaid city event sponsorships?

If not, should Gold Medal be receiving this assistance with an overdue, unpaid balance?

Who approved Gold Medal to receive a $10,000 check in light of the above?

Why is Gold Medal being given special treatment to this day, assuming the $17,000 remains unpaid?

FC-Watchdog is scheduled to meet with the interim city manager next week and we hope to get answers to the above at that time. If you share our concerns, please email council@fostercity.org. The city manager will also receive your email.

Jeff Regan

Andrew Boone calls SMC Counsel John Beiers a Liar.

By Michael G. Stogner

May 5, 2020, The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Meeting.

Andrew Boone
San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers

Andrew Boone had made a public comment supporting higher wages in San Mateo County specifically the unincorporated area. During Public Comment there is No Response, it’s simply 2 minutes of saying whatever you feel is important. San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers couldn’t help himself he just had to give a response. He has a habit of doing that whenever he feels like it. Andrew Boone called back and called John Beiers a Liar and offered the Supervisors evidence to back up his claim. After that statement I waited for John Beiers or the Supervisors to express Outrage that a Citizen would call their Legal Counsel a Liar in a Public Meeting, Silence was the response.

BOS Meeting May 5, 2020 36:30 mark

Silence from Warren Slocum, Carol Groom, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa, Don Horsley, Mike Callagy, and John Beiers.

The reason for the Silence is Andrew Boone said the Obvious Truth.

Why would that be OK with all five elected officials and County Manager?

John Beiers serves at the pleasure of the FIVE SUPERVISORS.

Foster City Audit Yes or No?

By Michael G. Stogner

City Manager Jeff Moneda could have solved this a long time ago, He choose instead to obstruct this simple process. He also chose to resign and remain in that position for two months. Several residents asked by e-mail the City Council to fire him last week before a Closed Door Session about his employment. The meeting took place and there has been no public announcement of the results from that meeting yet. Why?

This issue is a debt for Non Payment of Sponsorship Fees to Foster City by now Recalled Elected Official Herb Perez in the amount of $17,090. That should be pretty simple did Mr. Perez pay this amount Yes or No ? Who should answer that question City Manager Jeff Moneda. It turns out he and others have known this information since mid January 2020.

Mayors Letter to Public

Agenda Item 6-2 A Resolution of the City Council of the City of Foster City Authorizing the Issuance of a Requests for Proposals for an Operational Assessment of the Parks and Recreation Department.

The Public would have no idea that the above Agenda Item was supposed to be about the Non-Payment of Sponsorship Fees by Recalled Councilmember Herb Perez because it wasn’t. That woodcrafting came from City Manager Jeff Moneda and City Attorney Jean Savaree.

The Taxpayers pay all the costs of the City Attorney and for that reason many members of the public believe the City Attorney looks out for their interest, not the case.

Under the Public Records Act, all documents created, owned, or maintained by a public agency are presumptively available for public inspection unless one of the PRA’s exemptions applies. This is no big deal and no reason for a City Attorney to be involved except in a very limited basis, guide the staff in how to prepare. Same is true in accounting matters no reason in the world for City Attorney or their Staff to be conducting accounting when that is what the Financial Depart is paid for already.

Foster City April 6, 2020 Meeting 49:25 Mark Item 6-2

All Five Council Members were asking the simple question How much does he owe the City of Foster City, that would imply none of them knew that amount. The City Manager and the City Attorney both knew that amount since January and both chose not to inform the council or the public. Why?

January 22, 2020 the City of Foster City sent a Final Bill by mail for $17,090.00

The readers of this should know this subject of Non-Payment of Sponsorship by an Elected Official would never have come to the publics attention had it not been for a Few Concerned Citizens who sent CPRA.

Foster City Residents asking City Manager Moneda to be Fired.

By Michael G. Stogner

Foster City Residents who took the time and money to provide True Citizen Oversight by Recalling Councilman Herb Perez who now is permanently labeled as RECALLED. They find themselves stepping up and doing it again with calling for City Manager Moneda to be labeled as FIRED from Foster City. A City Manager is appointed and the public knows very little about what he/she does or what authority they have. This case is pretty simple Mr. Moneda is Obstructing a very simple audit that involves the man who gave him his job.

April 13, 2020 5:00 PM

Foster City Council held a Closed Door Meeting last night about City Manager Moneda employment status. You will recall he turned in his resignation right after the Herb Perez Recall Election Results were certified by Mark Church San Mateo County Elections Officer.

CLOSED SESSION
4.1. 
Public Employee Appointment (Government Code §54957)

Title: City Manager

Public Comment e-mails.

Subject: Council Meeting – 4/6

Dear Councilmembers, 

I just finished watching the recording of the last city council meeting. Here are a few comments. 

  1. There were no known issues with the city’s finances before FC-Watchdog discovered these sponsorship non-payments. We found these non-payments by accident while validating sponsorship claims by Mr. Perez. Since we stumbled upon this mistake, how are we confident that this is the only problem? Gold Medal was a sponsor for the Summer Concerts 2019, but I do not see this information mentioned anywhere. No invoice has been sent to them. What else are we missing? Why are we seeking direction from internal staff, the same people who have put us in this mess.  

2.                   Mr. Moneda’s claims that sponsorship non-payments occurred only last year is not true. It has been happening since 2014. The following are unpaid dues by year. (ref: Document 1)

  1. 2014 – $1,000
  2. 2015 – $1,000
  3. 2017 – $9,500
  4. 2018 – $5,000
  5. 2019 – $4,000

3.                   Last year Mr. Moneda wrote a letter to Mr. Perez thanking him for his donation of $74,845.36. I was surprised when Mr. Moneda said he was not aware of the non-payment until September because the letter was written in June. 

4.                   Mr. Moneda mentioned that residents conducted their own audits and came up with different figures without providing the rationale behind it. That is not true. I have sent numerous emails to the city attorney, mayor, vice mayor with details and supporting documents.  On January 10th, Stacy Jiminez and I requested a meeting with director Jennifer Liu and Mr. Moneda, seeking clarifications on sponsorship solicitation, billing/invoicing, payment collection, and cash application.  Mr. Moneda agreed, and the meeting was set up, but he canceled it the next day and never rescheduled. The email exchange is attached herewith. 

Kind Regards,

Shankar Kenkre

  • Subject: Sponsorship questions

    Dear Council,
    There is a $17,000+ debt in sponsorship that has not been cleared up to date and the City Manager is now about to quit.
    How can we be able to have a fair audit if the person who can provide answers refuse to answer emails until he is gone?  This behavior should not be allowed and the City Manager needs to be fired immediately. This needs to be on his record instead of being allowed to be dodgy on a matter that shows clear favoritism to a council member who has been recalled. His letter commending Gold Medal of their sponsorships but no email exists for other businesses alongside discrepancies in sponsorships by Gold Medal & Herb Perez all point a finger at shady practices. If it’s not shady, then an audit will show that. 
    An immediate audit is needed before Moneda leaves or ask him to step down effective immediately. 

    I request again for an independent audit on unpaid city sponsorship obligations to be conducted in a timely manner so the breakdowns in city officials’ oversight can be rooted out, fixed, and prevented in future cases.

    Dear City Council,
    I’d like to voice my opinion that you release city manager, Jeff Moneda from your current role immediately. He has been dishonest numerous times during the last city council meeting and the lack of transparency regarding the money owed by Gold Medal has been frustrating. We would like the people working for the city to help our city and not to abuse the power. Sincerely,

Dear City Council,


I would like to urge you all to release city manager Moneda from his responsibilities immediately. 
There has been a complete lack of transparency regarding sponsorship money owed to the city by Gold Medal,  and dishonesty surrounding the issue. He lied 3 times at the last city council meeting and refuses to meet with residents to clarify the issue as directed by council motion. This type of abuse of power should not be tolerated and a clear message should be sent. 

Sincerely,

Nina Aggarwal 

This e-mail sets the stage for the April 13, 2020 Meeting.

Date: Mon, Apr 6, 2020 at 5:42 PM
Subject: Agenda Item: 6.2 – Council Meeting 4/6/2020
To: <council@fostercity.org>

Regarding:
“6.2. A Resolution of the City Council of the City of Foster City Authorizing the Issuance of a Requests for Proposals for an Operational Assessment of the Parks and Recreation Department”
Dear Council:On Jan. 13, 2020,  Mayor Mahanpour wrote:  “Through that review, it has become apparent that the billing and accounting practices in Parks and Recreation are deficient … In my opinion, the council should look into bringing in an independent third-party consultant to audit the processes, procedures and practices of the Parks and Recreation Department since their records have evidently not been kept in a best practices manner.” 
Why has the independent audit been reduced to an operational assessment?  Please do not cite cost as an impediment to an independent audit.  Most residents are aware that Council is prepared to spend $35 to $40 Million on a new Rec Center.  In my opinion,  money spent on ensuring fiscal integrity is far more important.   
With tonight’s official removal of Recalled Councilmember Herbert Perez,  it is time to usher in a new phase in Foster City government – one that is characterized by Transparency. 

Thank you,

Eva Hess

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 is shifting to minimal staffing for COVID-19 mitigation. In compliance with the order from the County Health Officer, the Elections Division located at 40 Tower Road in San Mateo will be closed to the public effective Tuesday, March 17 as a precautionary measure. 

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.

Vote by Mail Ballots received: 198,265
This information is a raw count estimate as of 5 p.m. March 13, 2020 that is subject to change and updated daily.

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….
