San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy ” Pretty Good Position.”

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: July 24, 2020 San Mateo County has had 3 COVID-19 Deaths and as of this morning the County is reporting only 5 ICU Beds and Staff available. That number has been 13 up until July 21, 2020. 20% Availability of 67 = 13 on the bar graph below you will see on the far right the GRAY color is supposed to show how many ICU Beds and Staff are available, for the first time it is BLANK.

In a SMDJ article this morning titled “Keeping closures at bay in San Mateo County.”

Mr. Callagy says: “Dr. Morrow does believe that we’re in a pretty good position here that doesn’t warrant the type of measure of closing more businesses down.” 

I don’t know where Mr. Callagy got his information about Dr. Scott Morrow’s Belief’s but I do know This is exactly what Dr. Scott Morrow said. Nowhere in this statement does he mention “PRETTY GOOD POSITION.”  He said “We don’t have the resources to do case-control studies given the enormous burden on all the staff at the health department at this time.” “No gatherings outside of immediate households, use facial coverings extensively, and social distancing.”

It’s a shame the SMDJ which has 84,000 readers just promoted the PGP statement. This is a PANDEMIC.

Health Officer Statements

Message from July 20, 2020

Please read or reread my previous statements below to get a better understanding of where we find ourselves today and actions you can take to protect yourselves and your family.

Why is the virus spreading here at it’s current higher level now? I don’t know exactly, but it appears to me that there are 3 major factors. In order to understand what’s going on completely with transmission risks, we would need to do case-control studies.  We don’t have the resources to do case-control studies given the enormous burden on all the staff at the health department at this time, but we can take some educated guesses based on patterns that we are seeing here.

  1. The virus appears remarkably, even surprisingly, transmissible.  At pretty much every point over the last 6+ months, I’ve been surprised, and impressed, at how capable this virus is at moving itself between people.  It spreads in households like wildfire and it spreads in other indoor environments too.  It seems to be everywhere we look.  I know this is hard, we’re all exhausted and frustrated by having to take precautions, but the implication of this fact is that you can’t let your guard down, or be careless, even once, especially if you are at high risk.
  2. Fundamental structural failures of the US economy are being laid bare by the pandemic. These structural issues seem to be a major cause of the transmission we’re now seeing, at least in San Mateo County.  Many elements of the US economy can be viewed as illogical, even immoral in my opinion, in that so many people are forced to live lives of economic desperation, live pay check to pay check, are not paid a living wage, live with no workplace safety nets, like healthcare, like paid sick leave, or other wage protection programs.  While these structural issues are illogical in good times, they are downright inexplicable in times of a pandemic.  These structural problems are at such a massive scale, they can not be ignored.  A majority of people we are seeing infected now are front line workers (people who allow the rest of us to eat, and have electricity, and have our garbage picked up, etc), live in crowded multigenerational conditions, live with lack of trust in, and in fact have downright fear of, government.  Remember to stem the spread of this very transmissible virus, people who are infected need to be separated from others (isolation and quarantine), not go out in public, and not go to work while they are infectious.  Try getting compliance with isolation and quarantine when the infected person is the breadwinner for the family and the family will be out on the street if they don’t go to work.  And when they go to work they will, perhaps, interact at that job with you.  There is not enough enforcement capacity in the world to stop this from happening.  The implication of this is that the current business focused restrictions will do little to stem the spread of the virus when the spread is exacerbated by these conditions.  This requires rapid policy and systems changes at every level of both public and private sectors, from the feds on down, and from the largest corporations to the smallest business.  We need to see much more work in this area, and we need to have less reliance on business sector closures and restrictions, beyond getting businesses to do the basic transmission control measures.  Failure to fix some of these issues will prolong our collective pain.
  3. Complacency is the other majority factor enabling spread.  This is either born of belief systems (this is all a hoax, this isn’t that bad for me, let’s go to a party and get infected), or born of just not paying attention.  Many, many of our infections are related to fairly small gatherings of family and friends.  Birthday parties, picnics, eating at restaurants with mixed households, etc, without the basic precautions being taken.  Most of these gatherings are innocent, no doubt, not intending to spread the virus, but they do spread it, and with far reaching implications.  Please note, your seemingly innocuous get togethers are driving the spread and are a major reason why you can’t go to a restaurant, why you can’t go to the gym, why you can’t go get your hair cut, why kids can’t go to school.  Until, or unless more people get this fact, we will continue to be stuck in the situation we are in.  To get out of this situation depends on all of us.  Our collective best course of action: No gatherings outside of immediate households, use facial coverings extensively, and social distancing.

Scott Morrow, MD, MPH, MBA
San Mateo County Health Officer

Kevin Mullin didn’t say a word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by 6 SMC Employees.

By Michael G. Stogner

Kevin Mullin did not attend or make a public comment at any of the many meetings the Board of Supervisors made available to the public to discuss, Excessive Use of Tasers, Excessive Use of Force, Failure to provide Medical Aid after killing Chinedu Okobi. He did not attend any of the many Concerned Citizens gatherings at the killing site in Millbrae/San Bruno.

Chinedu V. Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by Law Enforcement. Both of the Deaths were ruled a Homicide by the local Coroner. The Four Officers responsible for George Floyd’s Homicide were fired and Criminally Charged. The Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees who are responsible for Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide are all working and None of them have been criminally charged with anything.

Here is Kevin’s PR piece on voting. You will notice he can’t even mention George Floyd’s Name. “most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement.” That could be Hundreds of young Black/Brown Men around America.

I can say this as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years Kevin Mullin is the norm for Elected Officials in SMC.

I know of only one San Mateo County Elected Official that Publicly Questioned, was Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered. That should have been the Obvious question every single elected official should want the answer to.

Sabrina Brennan was that Elected Official. She attended meetings and gatherings.

 

America is confronting an unprecedented “trifecta” that is dominating our daily headlines: A COVID-19 pandemic, a deep recession and most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, illustrative of systemic racism and injustice that has spawned a season of multiracial protests and calls for needed social change. Yet, while the nation is reeling from these crises, duplicitous messaging is being deployed by the occupant of the Oval Office to actively undermine the results of this November’s election: that voting by mail can’t be trusted, that widespread voter fraud exists, and that mail balloting is designed specifically to elect his opponent: FALSE.

Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed ballots, in all 50 states, according to the Vote at Home Institute with only a handful of fraudulent votes cast. Election law expert and U.C. Irvine professor Richard L. Hasen notes, it is still more likely for an American to be struck by lightning than to commit mail-voting fraud. In addition, there is no evidence to suggest that voting by mail benefits any particular political party.

San Mateo County has shown that voting-by-mail works. My legislation to make San Mateo County an all-mail ballot pilot county demonstrated that the participating electorate more closely resembles the public at large in terms of its diversity and representation, with young people, and voters of color in particular more likely to cast ballots. Thanks to my colleague, Assemblyman Marc Berman’s legislation recently signed into law, this November’s election in California will be an all-mailed-ballot election. Every voter automatically will receive a ballot, postage paid, with community-level “vote centers” as back-up. Voting by mail is the most efficient and effective way to conduct an inclusive and participatory election.

So-called “red and blue” states alike have employed voting-by-mail, but the way states have approached elections administration varies greatly. Elections are fundamentally state and locally administered, and recent examples of mismanagement during primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia remind us of the challenges facing election administrators across the country. This is a highly charged political atmosphere with huge stakes on the line.

There is a growing recognition that the pandemic must force changes in how elections work, and better ensure more participation moving forward. Attempts to help fund elections with federal dollars have fallen woefully short of what is needed to ensure free and fair elections across America. Since the Bush-Gore contested election in 2000, the efficacy of voting mechanisms and machinery have taken center stage. More recently, we are seeing a coordinated misinformation campaign to attack the integrity of, and undermine the public’s faith in, our elections. False narratives abound, and voter suppression, which disproportionally disenfranchises communities of color, is real and we all suffer the consequences as a result.

While voting-by-mail works, it is not perfect. Signature-matching issues have led to ballots not being counted, a concern that is actively being addressed in California. One other legitimate drawback to voting at home is the time it takes local elections’ officials to count waves of mail ballots and certify the election. The current administration is preemptively trying to undermine faith in the eventual vote count and may try to exploit delays in vote tabulation to question the legitimacy of results, triggering a constitutional crisis. While the long wait for vote-by-mail results is not ideal, it’s in the interest of every vote being counted, which is fundamental to our democracy.

During this tense time when we need leaders who can calm, heal, and build faith, the president has used this period to further divide people and incite violence, all while callously attacking the basic underpinnings of our democracy, like faith in and respect for the work of journalists — essentially a broadside on the First Amendment. The work of journalists and the social media platforms themselves have never been more important in fact checking false claims and advertisements with false information.

Vote as if democracy itself, and its pillars like a free press, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, including the right of every citizen to vote, is on the ballot. Because it is.

 

Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, is speaker pro tempore of the California Assembly and represents San Mateo County’s 22nd Assembly District.

I asked San Mateo County Citizen Advocate Brent Turner for comment on Kevin Mullin Opinion Piece.

Brent Turner

The VOTE BY MAIL  act  is  innocuous to the degree that it reiterates voting by mail procedures. We have used absentee ballots for many years. What is NOT innocuous is the removal of polling places from communities of color. Though Mindy Romero and other experts have declined to state it clearly,  the added travel distance to some of these community residents results in a veritable “poll tax ” and leads to further disenfranchisement, . Subjective signature disqualification also creates opportunity for disenfranchisement and was predicted by election experts

The bill originally emanated from the ” Colorado Model ”  of elections and was  promulgated by Colorado based vendor DOMINION  The act is notorious not for what it mandates but what it ignores. The fact there is ZERO mention of the software used to tabulate the votes creates a severe point of misdirection to the layperson voter.  This is unfortunate as the authors of the bill positioned it as a security measure when this  is not the case. The authors were briefed extensively but chose to omit the work of the open source software security experts.

ALL Half Moon Bay Beaches Closed

By Michael G. Stogner

BEACHES CLOSED Stay Home, Wear Masks, Saves Lives 

Half Moon Bay Beaches will open 9:00 AM July 6, 2020

July 2 UPDATE – City and State Beaches & Parking Lots in HMB to be Closed for 4th of July Weekend

This updates the previous news release on beach closures. All beaches within the City will be closed Friday – Sunday due to COVID-19 risk. This now includes Half Moon Bay State Beach. These are complete closures and apply to all residents and visitors.

July 2, 2020 – As a temporary public health safety measure to reduce the density of visitors over the 4th of July holiday weekend, all beaches and their parking areas in Half Moon Bay will be closed to everyone, for the weekend. Additionally, a portion of the Coastal Trail between Seymour Bridge and Kelly Avenue will be closed for that same period.

This update of the City’s previous notice of beach closures (below) now includes that beach access for Half Moon Bay State Beach (Francis Campground/Kelly Avenue, Venice Boulevard, and Young Avenue) will be closed as well. Yesterday, we announced the State Beach parking areas will be closed and that all access points to City beaches and their parking lots will also be closed. With today’s addition of access points to the State Beach, these are now full and complete closures of the beaches, and a section of the Coastal Trail, to all residents and visitors. 

The closure begins at sunrise on Friday, July 3, and ends at 9:00 AM on Monday, July 6.

The order to close City beaches, parking lots, and a portion of the Coastal Trail was signed by the City Manager under his authority based on the City’s emergency declaration. 

This action is being taken to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Spread of the virus is greatly intensified when large crowds gather, especially if face covering and social distancing regulations are not followed.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies will be present at closed beaches and coastal trail sections to enforce applicable local ordinances and state laws. City staff will be at beach entrance points to advise visitors of the closures. Changeable electronic message boards will be placed on various roadways to notify motorists of the closures.

Sandra Harmon R.I.P. shown with Hands above Head being fired upon by SMC Deputies.

By Michael G. Stogner

At least five shots fired at her while unarmed & hands up. 8:03-8:08 Mark

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos released a Public Relations Video 45 days after Sandra Harmon was killed by Deputies. The original claim made by Sheriff Balanos was She shot first, Newspapers reported a Shootout which requires bullets going both ways. It would be so simple to prove that release Deputy Dominguez’s Body worn video, his MAV audio from the Dashcam which was right there at the scene. It would have recorded the single or double shot allegedly fired from the shotgun that we see on the ground. That would also answer the question How & When did the Shotgun get on the ground. Did she start the shootout and then lay it down only to be shot at while her hands were in the air?

Sheriff Bolanos tells us that things moved so quickly that Deputy Dominguez was unable to activate his Body Worn Video. That’s unfortunate because that would have confirmed Bolanos’s Story.

Deputy Dominguez Body Worn Video was working just fine from the 3:30-6:29 mark. Sheriff Bolanos claims it wasn’t on less then a minute later. So to recap The Sheriff Office has had 45 days to edited and create a shot fired or shootout as they told the residents of San Mateo County.

Instead they provide a video showing NO Shots Fired by Sandra Harmon and show Deputies firing at an unarmed woman with her hands up.

So far this is OK with the 750,000 residents of San Mateo County

Sheriff Bolanos’s Video

What would you do if you were unarmed hands above your head and Deputies are firing at you from close range? I think a reasonable person would try to defend herself even if the shotgun was not loaded. What choice did she have? Follow more legal orders while they reload?

Sherif Carlos G. Bolanos release all video and audio like you should have 45 days ago.

Chinedu Okobi’s Death was a Homicide. Same as George Floyd.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirms Chinedu Okobi’s death was a Homicide. 47:30 mark.

A reasonable person would ask why the Six Sheriff Employees were not arrested and charged? In George Floyd’s Homicide all Officers were fired and criminally charged.

I’m not surprised the residents of San Mateo County don’t know this information, Reporter Anna Schuessler sat in front of me at the press conference and heard as we all did it was a Homicide. Her article the next left out the most important word in the story Homicide for some reason. Thats 84,000 readers that were not informed.

Deputies cleared: Taser death decision likely trailed by lawsuit, pledge to use medical equipment

By Anna Schuessler Daily Journal staff Mar 2, 2019 

The Residents of San Mateo County should get a second opinion from the A.G.

Mark Simon Joins the Victim Shaming/Bashing TEAM.

By Michael G. Stogner

May 14, 2020 Mark Simon wrote an article titled “An unusual Harbor District Meeting” the typical Victim Shaming piece which is something he is quite skilled at. This article is about a SMCHD meeting that took place 29 days prior to his article. He has joined Congresswoman Jackie Speiers Daughter Stephanie Sierra of ABC 7/KGO in the Victim Shaming plan of attack. Also on the TEAM is Supervisor Don Horsley, Assemblyman Kevin Mullin (Mark Simon’s partner) I can’t wait to discover who is the Captain of this TEAM and who is responsible for forming it.

I would suggest Mark Simon consider the May 26, 2015 as an unusual meeting it was very exciting and I know he attended I just don’t know why?At the time he worked for SamTrans.

First of all this April 15, 2020 meeting was not unusual for the Harbor District, I’m not sure how many meetings Mr. Simon has actually attended I have attended several and the yelling and cutting each other off especially Virginia Chang Kiraly to Sabrina Brenna is normal Virginia doesn’t like Sabrina similar to how Mark Simon feels about her.

Mark Simon who supports the Perpetrator says Her vehicle for this behavior was a long-standing dispute with fellow Commissioner Tom Mattusch, who in 2014 foolishly circulated some raw pornography to about 40 people. Mark doesn’t mention the Invitation for all expense paid Safari trip Tom Mattusch offered Sabrina.

So it’s Not ok with Mark Simon for Victim Sabrina Brennan to speak about female genitalia but is ok to mail unwelcome porn, which is exactly what Commissioner Tom Mattusch sent her and all the other Commissioners, Supervisor Don Horsley, Assemblyman Mullin, Mark Simon, and Stephanie Sierra ABC 7/KGO are cool with that. Together they want/wish Sabrina Brennan to just SHUT UP, Move On. That is the same that all Child Molesters (SMC Dr. William Ayers) and their Enablers want/wish of their Victims.

John Ullom at 29:20 Mark He and brother Dan own Citizen Access TV, somebody stole his broadcasting device, They were broadcasting the meeting live for FREE. Somebody didn’t want that to happen.

SMCHD Meeting May 26, 2015

SamTrans 2013 Protest of Bulling and Corruption at San Carlos Headquarter

The true picture of Mark Simon, a Loud & Vile Bully, Victim Shaming/Basher.

As a Private Victims Advocate for the last 22 years in San Mateo County I find the way to get a victim to stop talking about a subject is to deal with it Honestly in the first place. Victim Shaming, and telling the Victim to Shut up is a guarantee that you will hear about it at Every Single Meeting.

“I will continue bringing up my harassment at these meetings,” she said. “I won’t be silenced.” Sabrina Brennan.

Lenny Mendonca quietly resigned on Good Friday.

By Michael G. Stogner

Lenny Mendonca abruptly resigned April 10, 2020. He’s no longer the CA Chief Economic & Business Advisor to Gov Newsom and he’s no longer serving as the Chair for the CA High Speed Rail Authority. 

The California High Speed Rail Authority just had a meeting April 21, 2020. They were forced to disclose an Investigation, They disclosed a watered down version of what is really happening. They reported that the consultant WSP hired their own Attorney to Investigate the Whistleblowers Allegations.

Everybody knows that is not a real Investigation.

The investigation disclosure was made at Tuesday’s board meeting in response to a question raised by board member Martha Escutia, a former state senator and now USC vice president for government relations. Escutia said she raised the matter because it was important to protect the integrity of the project.

Thanks to the LATIMES By RALPH VARTABEDIAN we now know there are two Criminal Investigations. This was not disclosed at the meeting.

The project is being investigated by the criminal division of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Inspector General, and the F.B.I.

As most San Mateo County Residents know Lenny Mendonca is the owner of the Half Moon Bay Review and his Newspaper didn’t see this as a Newsworthy Story.

A reasonable person would think that San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy would do everything in his power to assure the PUBLIC that this could NEVER happen on his watch.

Public comments at the Board of Supervisor meetings, sending them copies of my articles from SMCN.com. This is a Five year case finally soon to be heard by a Jury.

The public expects criminal charges filed are accurate and honest, Juan P. Lopez case proves that is not true in San Mateo County

Editor

November 6, 2019 SSF Court 1:30 PM

X Deputy Juan P. Lopez will inform the court of his response to the District Attorneys Office Offer of No Prison Time if he accepts the deal.

Everyone in San Mateo County remembers Five years ago he was arrested at gun point in front of his son for Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Inmate at the Redwood City Jail. Big press conference by D. A. Wagstaffe at the time, It was also reported he embezzled up to $400,000 of campaign donations. One small problem with that was he only raised about $400.00. Those charges were all dismissed because of Prosecutorial Misconduct. He is now being offered a deal to plead guilty to charges that came from the BACKPACK that was stolen from his car which was parked at his condo in Redwood City. That theft happened shortly after he filed papers as a Write In Candidate for Sheriff. A search warrant was then created looking for what they already had “Documents that were stolen” Mortgage Fraud the owner occupied box had a check mark in it. The lender never filed a complaint.

Any concerned citizens/residents are invited to join us in court November 6, 2019

I first met Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez right after he announced he was going to be a candidate for Sheriff in San Mateo County in 2014. I thanked him for giving the residents a choice for Sheriff. I was on the phone with him when he got arrested at gun point at one of his homes. I was with him when the Sheriff’s Office served him with legal papers at his home, I opened the door and greeted the 2 Sheriff Deputies. I was with him and another concerned citizen Lamont Phemister when the Sheriff’s Office ordered him to be at the Gun Range to receive more legal papers. The first time they gave him 90 minutes notice, the second time 4 day notice.

Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was charged with 14 Felony Counts 5 years ago. The District Attorney’s Office, The Sheriff’s Office and County Counsel’s Office have done everything possible to cause harm to him and those close to him. He has lost 5 years of Income, his last year he earned about $250,000. He has hired 2 Law Firms you can guess that cost is over $200,000.

Now Five Years later the District Attorneys Office Offers a Plea Bargain the day It’s lead Investigator Jordan Boyd was to take the Witness stand. Tomorrow he and his attorneys will inform the Court and all of San Mateo County his response.

I personally think that is Newsworthy I might be wrong.

Tomorrow Saturday Jan 12, 2018 will be Deputy Mark Melville last day as a SMCSO Deputy. Now might be a great time to say Thank You to him if you see him on patrol.

Mark recently ran for Sheriff and told every single editor that Carlos Bolanos is a Liar. Had any of them published that statement he would be the Sheriff of San Mateo County today. Talk about influencing an election.
