If San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks, and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos would lie about this you can bet they would lie about anything. It’s been 14 years, they are not the only ones lying about it.
Since Carlos G. Bolanos Candidate for Re-Election of Sheriff 2022 refused to answer any of these questions four years ago they still apply today.
Reminder: San Mateo County News.com was the first 2/28/2020 News and Information source for the residents of SMC to report that Executive Director of the Sheriff’s Activity League, Barbara Bonilla was on Administrative Leave.
Any reasonable person would know that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the last Law Enforcement agency that should be investigating itself. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and the Attorney General’s Office Teamed up right from the beginning, you had to know what the results were going to be.
To Captain Christina Corpus and Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan Date: Mon, May 11, 2020 at 10:28 AM Subject: Re: Target Gift Cards Thanks Christina. Now this is more than just BB ordering her staff around. This is mismanagement of cash – and now it is not just BB.
Note: BB is Barbara Bonilla and now it is not just Barbara Bonilla, also Gift Cards are a great way to Launder Money.
Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.
Just because somebody is Criminally Charged with something, doesn’t mean they are Guilty. Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal Case is a Perfect Example of that. Remember he was charged with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member, whatever happened to those charges? Just ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.
San Mateo County News.com has asked San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos what his policy is for his 800 employees being vaccinated. The Sheriff and his Public Information Officer have not responded yet.
The Public has a right to know if the Sheriff Deputy that has pulled him/her over for a traffic stop is fully vaccinated. It’s no secret that several people in Law Enforcement think they are above the rules, “Those Who Matter” club. Some have even filed lawsuits to avoid being vaccinated.
Violation of Oath? First responders, whose oath is to serve and protect, and to race into harm’s way in the interest of public safety.
I’ve asked a simple question, Sheriff Bolanos what is your policy on your employees being vaccinated in order to serve the public? In order to be in a Court Room, to be in MaGuire or Maple Jail, or San Mateo County Medical Hospital, or the 400 County Center Building, or Sheriff Activities League?
What is San Mateo County Sheriff Office Policy?

Good morning Sheriff Bolanos, What is your policy on your employees being fully vaccinated? What is your total number of Employees, and how many have been fully vaccinated as of today? If any claim religious exemptions will those documents be verified for perjury?
Thank you in advance of your response. Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com
The same question could be asked for All San Mateo County Employees.
Note: Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is a candidate for Re-Election in just 9 months.
San Mateo County News.com asked San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his Public Information Officer what was his position on having all of his employees mandated to be vaccinated in order to work in San Mateo County.
The LATIMES reported today about San Francisco Sheriff Deputies response to the Vaccine Mandate.
San Francisco deputies threaten to quit over vaccine Union says about 160 of 600 employees would prefer to wear masks or test weekly. associated press The union representing San Francisco sheriff’s deputies said last week a number of its officers will quit or retire early if they are forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Under a mandate issued last month, city employees who work in the jails or other high-risk settings are required to be vaccinated by Sept. 15 or risk losing their jobs. The San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Assn. said on its Facebook page Friday that about 160 of 600 sheriff’s department employees are rejecting the vaccine due to religious or other beliefs, and would rather wear masks or test weekly. “If deputy sheriffs are forced to vaccinate a percentage of them will retire early or seek employment elsewhere,” the statement said. The union said that the staffing level at the sheriff’s office is already low, and that the loss of more deputies will affect public safety. It is asking the city to follow state guidelines, which offer employees the option of testing regularly. City officials denounced the union’s position, coming days after seven Bay Area counties reinstated indoor masking requirements to stem transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus. “There is also an undue and unacceptable health and safety risk that is imposed upon the city, our employees and the public we serve, by those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19,” the city’s Department of Human Resources said in a statement. “Vaccines are safe, effective and readily available to our employees.” About 16% of sheriff’s deputies, 17% of police and 9.5% of Fire Department employees were not vaccinated as of Friday, according to city data obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle. Meanwhile, the average unvaccinated rate across all city departments is 7.7%. Nancy Crowley, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s department, said officials are working with the human resources department to obtain full compliance by the deadline.
My e-mail to SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos went unanswered. That was 12 days ago.

Good morning Sheriff Bolanos, What is you current policy for Sheriff Employees getting vaccinated? How many of the 800 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees have been vaccinated to date? Do you plan to make it an Employment Policy Requirement as the State of California has just announced this week for Government Employees?
Thank You Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com
I am not sure how many of the other 7 advertising businesses aka Newspapers asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that same question but I do know none have written about that subject. I think the residents of San Mateo County have a right to know the answer to this type of question. This is a Public Health Issue.
San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.
Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.
Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.
Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.
I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.
I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.
One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.
If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.
Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.
Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.
Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.
San Mateo County can use your help, Please Investigate Tim Singer, Errol Chang, Yanira Serrano Garcia, Chinedu V. Okobi, Sandra Lee Harmon and Roger Allen Homicide cases just to name a few.
Note: I’m not suggesting Tim Singer was killed by Police, but the Investigation into his Homicide was done by San Mateo County Sheriff Office, It was not investigated as a Hate crime and look to the 2 Death Certificates cause of death.
“One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said.
Article in todays LATIMES
Bonta forms special teams Attorney general opens field offices to investigate fatal police shootings across state. By Patrick McGreevy SACRAMENTO — The state Department of Justice has opened field offices throughout California to investigate police shootings that kill unarmed civilians and has told law enforcement agencies that they must notify the state whenever such incidents occur, Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta said Wednesday. The actions, including the opening of investigative offices in Los Angeles and Riverside, were in response to a new law that took effect July 1 requiring Bonta’s office to independently probe all fatal police shootings of unarmed civilians to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against officers. Bonta said he expected the two new teams, one for Northern California and one for Southern California, would investigate 40 to 50 fatal police shootings each year based on historic trends. “One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said. “Impartial, fair investigations and independent reviews of officer-involved shootings are one essential component for achieving that trust.” The attorney general said 27 special agents and six supervisory agents would make up the California Police Shooting Investigation Teams. The Northern California office is in Sacramento. Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), author of the new law, said he was concerned that the state Department of Justice had denied requests from some community leaders to undertake independent investigations of several high-profile police shootings. The state DOJ has traditionally deferred to county prosecutors, who have handled such cases after investigations by the law enforcement agencies involved. “Police shouldn’t police themselves, and the current system is fraught with conflicts of interest,” McCarty said during debate on the bill. He noted he had first proposed such legislation in 2015 and since then more than 800 people had been shot and killed by police in California. The measure, Assembly Bill 1506, was opposed by some law enforcement groups, including the California State Sheriffs’ Assn., which said it could result in duplicate state and local investigations and that the state DOJ lacked the resources and was not equipped to take on the new responsibilities. The measure “bypasses local investigatory processes, including established agreements to have outside agencies investigate officer-involved uses of force,” the association said in its opposition letter to lawmakers last year. On Wednesday, Cory Salzillo, the association’s legislative director, said in a statement: “The sheriffs continue to work closely with the attorney general and Department of Justice on the implementation of procedures for the authority described in AB 1506.” Under the law, the DOJ must investigate the fatal police shootings and submit a written report that states the facts of the case, its analysis, provides a conclusion on each issue raised by the shooting and recommends whether policies of the law enforcement agency should be changed. If the DOJ determines criminal charges are warranted, it would prosecute the officers. Bonta said his office would also continue to conduct “pattern and practice” investigations of law enforcement agencies if there appear to be problems beyond one incident. Those kinds of investigations, aimed at determining whether reforms should be pursued, are ongoing involving the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Vallejo Police Department. On Wednesday, Bonta formally launched the new investigative teams and released the guidelines and protocols his office would use in investigating fatal police shootings, saying his agency will make public its investigative findings, including explanations when a decision is made not to seek a criminal prosecution. Bonta said investigators would be deployed throughout the state with an emphasis on areas where there had historically been the most police shootings. The field offices will allow investigators to get to the scenes of shootings quickly, he said. The shooting investigation teams “will work in coordination with local responding agencies throughout the investigation of the officer-involved shooting, and members … will serve as concurrent, independent special agent investigators of these critical incidents,” the DOJ said in a statement. Once an investigation is completed, the case will be turned over to the DOJ’s Special Prosecutions Section within the Criminal Law Division for review. Administrative or civil investigations remain the responsibility of the law enforcement agency that employs the involved officers. Bonta was a state assemblyman before Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed him attorney general in March to fill a vacancy left by Xavier Becerra’s departure to become U.S. Health and Human Services secretary in the Biden administration. As a lawmaker, Bonta was a co-author of the legislation he is now implementing. He said during a news conference Wednesday that the investigations would not be easy but that he expected local law enforcement would cooperate. “I’m honestly not expecting a lot of pushback or tension or obstacles,” Bonta said. “We will be prepared for any that do arise.” Representatives of the LAPD did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the new state investigation teams. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will “enthusiastically work collaboratively” with the DOJ in investigating fatal shootings of unarmed civilians, said Capt. John Satterfield, adding that the “goal is to assist the DOJ in completing a comprehensive, fair and impartial joint investigation.” The state budget approved for the fiscal year that began July 1 includes $13 million to staff the investigation teams. The DOJ said before Bonta’s appointment that it would need $26 million to properly investigate the 40 deadly police shootings that the state averaged each year. He said Californians deserved an independent and transparent process for determining whether police officers acted properly when shooting unarmed civilians. He also said the issue was personal for him. “I’ve heard firsthand the hurt and the pain that too many families and communities feel in the moments after these incidents,” Bonta said. “I have witnessed the lack of trust that these investigations will be treated fairly by our criminal justice system.”
Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.
There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.
This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.
On May 28, 2021, the City Council received a report from resident David Eblovi entitled The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay. At its June 1, 2021, Council meeting, Council directed staff to agendize an item for the June 15, 2021 meeting to receive a presentation on the report.
Two guest speakers have been invited by Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback to discuss the Report and add their voices to the general conversation about public safety in Half Moon Bay. Dr. Greg Woods will focus comments on ethics and accountability in policing, and Sergeant Carl Tennenbaum SFPD (Ret.), will focus comments on the benefits of civilian responders to low-risk calls. Their bios have been provided to the Council under separate cover and are on file with the City Clerk.
At the beginning of the item, staff recommends that the mayor present protocols and an agenda for how the item will go including approximate times for various sections. The item will conclude with Council deliberation and direction.
Thank You Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez for getting this Important Conversation on the Agenda. It should have been on in 2014 when Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo Cpinty Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his patrol vehicle. He had ZERO Plan, He Tampered with the Evidence. That is exactly what happened at the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020, NO PLAN and Tampering with the Evidence.
Two Council Members are finally doing what every Elected Official in SMC should have been doing for years.
Update: Next Court Dates are July 21, 2021 @ 1:30 PM and September 21, 2021 @ 9:00 AM

You may recall Barbara Bonilla was much more than just the Execute Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League when she was escorted out of her Office on February 10, 2020.
She was the Campaign Manager for Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. She also worked at Redwood City Police Department for Carlos G. Bolanos when he was the Police Chief there.
She was a:
San Mateo County Sheriff Employee
San Mateo County Parks & Recreation Committee, Commissioner
Redwood City Rotary Member
California PAL and National PAL Board Member.
How is the SMC Sheriff Activities League a 501 C?
What Has the SMC Sheriff Activities League done to make sure this NEVER happens again, since the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation by the State of California Attorney General and the San Mateo County Sheriff Office, which any reasonable person would know was an obvious Conflict of Interest.
Here is a short list of who knew about the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation.
Bill Nicolet, Assistant Sheriff Gregory Rothaus, Coastside Lutheran Church, Correctional Medical Group, Dani Gasparini & Alyn Beals, David Amann, Donald Hack, Greg Munks, Henry Gaw, Jeff Ira, Kiwoba Allaire, Lori & Eric Lochtefeld, Jim Hartnett & Rosanne Foust, Assistant Sheriff John Munsey, Maloney & Associates, Marshall Realty, Jonathan Shipman, Neil & Kate Layton,Pete Liebengood & Alicia Aguirre, Phillip Raiser, Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Steve Wagstaffe, Trisha Sanchez, Warren Slocum, Don Horsley. Adam Alberti.
San Mateo County News.com was the first News Media to write about Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave from Sheriff Activities League Headquarters in Redwood City.
How is that possible? With all those people who had knowledge about Barbara Bonilla, that Not One of the SEVEN Print Media in San Mateo County wrote an article about it in January or February?
The California State Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting Barbara Bonilla, What have you heard from them about this case? How did they come up with these charges? Is Barbara Bonilla really the only person involved?
The Jimenez-Rarback Report was put on the June 15, 2021 Meetings Agenda 4 yes 1 no vote,
This is a San Mateo County Issue not just a Half Moon Bay Issue. It’s rare when an Elected Official actually does the work on behalf of the residents, Here you have two Elected Officials doing what’s right for all of San Mateo County.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and even some Half Moon Bay Council members have said that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera when he exited his patrol car and went to the R.V. he expected Sandra Lee Harmon to be in. By the way he went to the R.V. by himself for some reason, He knew Sandra had a Shotgun and a bottle of wine and had mentioned a Race War. He went alone with BWC turned off is the Government’s Official Story. From the first time that story was presented to the public to this day that is exactly what it is a Story Words Spoken by the Top Government Officials. There has not been one piece of Evidence to support that Story.
Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is. Even if it is the Sheriff.
The Axon Log Records which are paid for by the Taxpayers will prove the statement from the Government Officials is True if it is and False if it is a Lie.
The Staff for the City of Half Moon Bay have demonstrated there complete lack of interest in getting to the truth of what happened the night Sandra L. Harmon was shot in the Back three times all Fatal.
2022 Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville has stated that he will release the AXON LOG RECORDS the first day he is sworn in. Now that makes a reasonable person wonder why Bolanos & Silberman are refusing to provide them and also why the City did not sue them to make them public.
City of Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie has kept a tight lid on any and all information regarding the April 7, 2021 Homicide of Roger Allen R.I.P. by somebody from her Police Department. Here is what we know for sure Roger Allen is dead, that’s about it. We don’t know who shot him or why 4 DCPD Officers were at a disabled truck with a flat time in the first place.
Who’s gun fired shots? See how simple this is? An examination of the officer’s gun showed that a single round was fired.
Why would Daly City Elected Officials and Staff go the opposite way of America in 2021. I would guess it’s simple Math. They are betting this will settle with a payment of Taxpayer money and Never get to a Jury trial. That way a NDA will be signed and No more information will be made public then we know today.
Jeff Regan has it right: Why do voters put up with this? You can’t recall a city manager, but you can recall a city council.
Public comment about any subject should be at the beginning of city council meetings. Then, public comment for each agendized item. Daly City not having body and dash cameras, their lack of transparency regarding a police homicide and making residents wait several hours for public comment are done intentionally to thwart democracy and the rights of the citizens who pay the salaries of city staff, and police department personnel. Where is the council oversight? Why do voters put up with this? You can’t recall a city manager, but you can recall a city council.
Just north of Daly City, San Francisco Police shot a man on May 7, 2021, He wasn’t killed but here is what happened the Police Chief Identified the Officer who shot him and he Apologized to the public.
San Francisco police chief apologizes for officer shooting Bullet struck burglary suspect in the wrist during scuffle on May 7 POLICE CHIEF William Scott says the shooting of Xavier Pittman “simply should not have happened.” (Justin Sullivan Getty Images) By Lila Seidman and Richard Winton San Francisco Police Chief William “Bill” Scott has offered a rare public apology for an officer’s recent shooting of an unarmed car burglary suspect. Xavier Pittman Jr., 23, was shot in the wrist by plainclothes Officer Zachary McAuliffe as he was being arrested May 7. Pittman is a suspect in a series of car burglaries. He was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said. An examination of the officer’s gun showed that a single round was fired. “The shooting of Mr. Pittman quite simply should not have happened,” Scott said during an online town hall on Thursday. “I’m deeply sorry that Mr. Pittman was shot during this incident, and I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Mr. Pittman, his family and his friends.” Scott added a wider public apology, saying, “We know you expect us to get this right, and we know how traumatic it is to see these types of incidents — especially when they should not have happened.” The chief said the shooting remains under investigation. He said plainclothes officers are exempt from wearing body cameras, but that video surveillance from a nearby business recorded the shooting. The incident began when police received 911 calls that several suspects in a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross were breaking into vehicles all over the city, from Golden Gate Park to Fisherman’s Wharf. Shortly after noon, U.S. Park Police spotted the Mitsubishi in the Presidio area of San Francisco and tried to stop it, but the vehicle sped away. McAuliffe and a colleague found the vehicle and the suspects at Jack London Alley and Varney Place, police said. As some suspects fled in the Mitsubishi, the officers apprehended Pittman and the shot was fired. Video footage shows two officers running in the alley toward Pittman with their guns drawn. “Plainclothes officer No. 1 grabbed Mr. Pittman, and both fell to the ground,” a San Francisco police commander said during the town hall. In the scuffle, he said, the officer’s handgun fired and struck Pittman “in the left wrist area.” According to the video, one officer can be heard yelling: “Police Department! Police!” Immediately afterward, a gunshot is heard. Pittman, who was unarmed, is heard saying he has been shot and requests an ambulance. McAuliffe “did not intend for his firearm to go off,” his attorney Mike Hinckley said. “He sincerely apologizes to Mr. Pitman and wishes him a full speedy recovery.” Pittman’s attorney, Adante Pointer, said it is “unclear whether it was an accidental discharge or intentional, as the video is not terribly clear.” He said his client did not do anything to warrant deadly force being used against him. He said the officer was acting recklessly. “For safety reasons, officers are trained not to have their gun in hand when they go hands on with a person in order to prevent this very thing or something worse from happening,” he said. “This could have easily been a fatal shooting of my client or of another person in the vicinity.” The Police Department has yet to determine whether the gunshot was intended. The San Francisco district attorney will decide whether the officer involved will face criminal charges. Pittman was arrested on suspicion of second-degree car burglary, conspiracy, possession of stolen property and committing a felony while on release. Police said the other suspects remain at large. The Mitsubishi was found abandoned in Oakland. Investigators also recovered a large amount of stolen property from the auto burglaries.
