Jim Sutton Yes on Measure W attorney objects.

 

jimsutton_bio

Who hired Attorney Jim Sutton? He showed up at 40 Tower Road and objected to a minuscule amount of ballots being audited. He wanted it to be official and go on the record that he objected to this action.

“It’s shocking that they had 4 Supervisors and 12 employees working 8 or 9 hours working on this all because the losing side kind of brow beat them into doing so.”

“Under the law the only way that one side has the right to ask for documents to be re-reviewed is through a recount that they pay for.” That is true, That is where San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf comes into play. He as a citizen resident and voter in SMC is doing just that. A recount by hand of every single ballot for Measure W.

Mark-Church

Mark Church should be proud his accomplishment, This should come as no surprise to any readers of San Mateo County News.com. I have said San Mateo County is the Most Corrupt County in the United States of America.

Mark Church refuses to tell the residents how many ballots were mailed out? How many ballots were received? How many ballots were tallied. How many duplicate ballots were mailed out and why/how did that happen? Santa Clara County updated the tallied ballots yesterday at 3:59 PM and this morning at 9:20AM. Not the case with San Mateo County No update yesterday at all, and today update is scheduled for 5PM.

You can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure. Mr. Church is doing this on purpose.

Juan P. Lopez

Last election San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s name was deleted. He was told his vote was cancelled after he received his sample ballot. Here are his comments:

Hello Michael,
This story brings to mind the last election. Mark Church and his cabal did cancel my ability to vote. This surprised me when I had not received my ballot in the mail. I did receive my sample ballot, but to my surprise my election ballot never arrived. After waiting a couple of days to see if it was delayed, I contacted the elections office. I was told that my name had been cancelled. Imagine that. One less vote for Carlos Bolanos not dealt with. Who cancelled my ability to vote? Was it the same corrupt county cabal that controls everything in this county? From working there for so many years, I saw many things and was told to just put in my time and retire when I could. This county management needs to be completely replaced from the Board of Supervisors all the way down. Those that are not corrupt, are just as guilty for knowing it occurs and continue to turn a blind eye to it. Innocent people get fired, disciplined and even prosecuted in order to tarnish their names to send a message for all the employee’s that are still there. Bring your lunch boys, I am not going away.

Letter to Supervisor David Canepa.

david_canepa

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

October 16, 2018

To: David Canepa/ District 5 Supervisor

From: Christopher Conway/Constituent – District 2

Re: Seton Medical Center/ Daly City, Ca.

Dear Mr. Canepa –

I am a San Mateo County voter and reside in Distict 2. I am writing to you today to express my concern with the situation that is currently happening with Seton Medical Center in Daly City and to a lesser extent with the coastside facility in Moss Beach. My worry is that with Verity Health filing for bankruptcy, there are powers that be starting rumblings of having our county take over or participate in the operation of the hospital and even considering buying it outright. This is a private business whose losses and bad decisions should not be absorbed by your constituents. As a county, we have already pledged or given over $40 million dollars to a hospital that is seismically unfit. This hospital has unfunded pension guarantees that are the responsibility of the employer and should not become the liability of either the county or state. These pensions were part of a private negotiation between employer and employees and the liability must remain with the employer, not the public sector. This hospital is also expected to lose $30 million dollars this year with no hope of profitability in the foreseeable future.

I have written articles on this subject ever since Daughters of Charity put up for sale their network of hospitals. I became interested when Kamala Harris acting as Attorney General for the state of California put onerous conditions on the sale of the hospital to any buyer willing to step up. Verity Health finally did step up but the conditions placed on them by Kamala Harris, public unions and special interests caused them to declare bankruptcy. Current officials have stated that they want to keep these onerous conditions on any new buyer as a non-negotiable item. You and I both know that this will prevent and future private buyer from coming forward. If a private buyer could be found, we all agree that would be terrific. However, if the only buyer becomes our county, speaking on behalf of many voters, we don’t want any part of it.

So, I would like you to answer for me on behalf of county tax payers what your thoughts are on the fate of Seton Medical Center in Daly City and the role the county intends to take. I obviously would like the supervisors to act with transparency and give time for public input. Meetings on the matter should be announced well in advance. I believe this would be a terrible deal for our county and my concern comes primarily from the crumbling infrastructure, the unfunded pension liabilities and the losses that the hospital incurs year in and year out.

Sincerley,

Susan J. Bassi’s letter to Jeff Rosen SCC’s District Attorney.

card-DA-Jeff-Rosen

Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen

10/31/2018

Yesterday I heard Santa Clara County District Attorney begging the Santa Clara County Supervisors for a raise, in the interest of fairness.

For all the mothers who never saw a raise in their support orders after raising children here for 20 years or more, and for all the fathers who could not afford to pay their child support because they lost their jobs or were fired because of family court……

I wondered what Jeff Rosen thought about fairness when it came to all the people his office prosecuted using harmful error as reported in the Northern California Innocence Project.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about fairness before he maliciously prosecuted two men who had to paid millions of dollars to private criminal lawyers to get a Factual Finding of Innocence.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought it was fair to pressure young Saratoga high school students to take a plea deal in connection with Audrie Pott’s suicide, while he covered up the horrific domestic violence she had endured as her mother and stepfather battled it out in our family courts.
I wondered about all the victims Mr. Rosen failed to serve as he failed to prosecute lawyers, and celebrities like former 49er Ray McDonald, who beat his pregnant girlfriend and still hasn’t been sent to trial for a single misdemeanor.

I wondered if he thought about Deanne Cifuentes-Powers who hasn’t seen her daughter in months because she tried to tell Judge Takaichi and Judge Lie her daughter was afraid of her father who had been convicted of felony domestic violence ( in another state because Jeff Rosen doesn’t prosecute high tech executives).

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about Erin O’Doherty who was destroyed in family court becaue she threw a phone at her ex. She hasn’t seen her daughter in 4 years.

I wondered if he thought about Pam Nudelman, who was married to a former prosecuter, and was left with less than 20% of her community property and support that was less than a $1000.

I wondered if he thought of all the families financially destroyed because Jeff Rosen doesn’t enforce support orders in high assets cases, only cases of the working poor.

I wondered if he thought about how he illegally paid overtime to the DDAs in his office who supported his first campaign, but wasn’t prosecuted for what was certainly a crime.

I wondered if he thought of the former prosecutor who brought him 15 criminal counts against divorce lawyer Bradford Baugh , which Rosen decided not to investigate, or prosecute.

I wondered if he thought about all the women who have reported the horrors of Judge Towery, Judge Lucas, Judge Takaichi and other family court judges rigging divorce cases, and watching Jeff Rosen let them off the hook because of his personal relationship with Judge Towery’s wife. And because Judge Towery got all of his prosecutors out of discipline with the State Bar.

I wondered if Rosen thought about the elderly victims of Terry Houghton and his lawyer wife, Valerie Houghton, who have been under indictment since 2016, and Rosen can’t seem to get to trial, despite Terry Houghton getting taxpayers to pay for his defense through the IDO.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought of all the vicitms of domestic violence who tried to get someone to help them. Someone to pick up the phone in the offie Jeff Rosen supervises.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought of the child who was sexually molested by a repeat child abuser, as his DDA hit on the mom of that child.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about all the dads who were ruined by false child abuse claims.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about all the moms he didn’t believe about child abuse and domestic violence claims.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about how he failed to supervise the employee in Victim Claims, who was abusing his wife and carrying on an affair with a subordinate.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about the man who was found guilty of child abuse in our family courts, but who is now working for Juvenile probation where he has access to abuse other people’s children.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about how the victims and their families would feel about him asking for a raise as they watched him run the DA’s office where prosecutors carry on sexual affairs and stalk the most vulnerable on Tinder and other dating websites.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about the rape victims who still can’t get the results from their SART kits.

And I wondered if Jeff Rosen ever thought about all the support orders for the moms who never saw a cost of living raise after spending years raising children who would form the landscape of Silicon Valley.

It was a long meeting. I could wonder about a lot as Jeff Rosen wanted to whine about topping off his $400K a per plus pension annual perks.

I tried to interview Jeff Rosen after that meeting. Twice he faked that his leg hurt. I wondered if Jeff Rosen ever thought about how it hurt all the people who were punched, kicked threatened or killed by their spouses, intimate partners and parents who should have loved them, because Jeff Rosen is really bad at doing his job.
Mostly I am wondering if Jeff Rosen can read the law, much less follow it.

Maybe Rosen should leave publishing to the professionals.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe hasn’t satisfied Zain Jaffer.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe is talking more about the Zain Jaffer former Vungle executive found by police straddling his 3 year old son while fully naked in the backyard of his Hillsborough home at 4:00AM. Now 17 days after the entire case was dismissed without a preliminary hearing or any witnesses testifying under oath, Mr. Wagstaffe feels he has not done enough to satisfy Mr. Jaffer. Here is his latest PR statement to SFGATE, he did not send this to me co-owner of San Mateo County News. Note: Mr. Wagstaffe has refused to identify the alleged prescription medications that caused Mr. Jaffer to be Not Conscious while assaulting several people, resulting in 7 F’s & 1M charge. The DA’s Office quickly eliminated one felony charge of Attempted Murder.

The Charges that remained up until July 2, 2018:

Charge #1 Attempted Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with a Child 10 years of age or younger. PC 664.288.7(b) Felony

Charge #2 Forcible Lewd Act Upon Child, PC288 (b) Felony

Charge #3 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #4 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #5 Child Abuse, PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge #6 Child Abuse PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge # 7 Battery Upon a Peace Officer & Designated Person, PC 243 (b) Misdemeanor

SFGATE 7/19/2018

EDITOR’S NOTE: After the publication of this story, officials at the San Mateo County district attorney’s office said they wanted to clarify that “we do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

Here is the complete e-mail from DA Steve Wagstaffe to SFGATE

Breaking News Reporter Work: 415-777-7096 Cell: 805-450-7138

From: Steve Wagstaffe <swagstaffe@smcgov.org>Date: Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 8:26 AM
To: “Stone, Erin” <Erin.Stone@sfchronicle.com>Cc: Karen Guidotti <kguidotti@smcgov.org>Subject: Zainali Jaffer Case

Hi Erin,

On another and unrelated topic, I wanted to request a correction of a statement made by one of my prosecutors, Deputy District Attorney Sharon Cho, on the Zainali Jaffer case in your article on July 3, 2018 discussing the reasons for the dismissal of the case. You did not misquote her at all, but her statement has been misconstrued by some in the community. This is my requested correction.

The earlier quotes by Deputy District Attorney Sharon Cho appear to have been misinterpreted by some. We wish to clarify that we do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.

Thank you for your consideration of this correction. Steve

The FDA should issue a National Warning if the above statement is true.

Question to think about, Why would the District Attorney’s Office feel the need or obligation to clarify anything for Mr. Jaffer? He was facing life in prison if found guilty of the 7 felony counts. Steve Wagstaffe solved that for him.

Question? Steve Wagstaffe says “we do not believe.” That is why we have Juries, what did the evidence prove? If you didn’t believe it why did you charge him in the first place?

What could have possibly happened from October 15, 2017 to July 2, 2018 to cause this entire criminal case to simply disappear? And now 17 days later Steve Wagstaffe feels some pressure to make more public comments. What would cause that?

What about the 2 CHILDREN? CPS took them that morning, have they returned them because of Steve Wagstaffe’s actions?

Welcome to San Mateo County

Return the flag you removed

Editor,

During and after the Civil War, mostly through the effort of American women, the soldiers’ graves from both sides of the conflict were decorated with flags. The practice continued to grow in popularity in America as a means to memorialize and honor those who served in the military and gave their lives for their country. Finally, in 1971, Congress took action to distinguish the last Monday in May as Memorial Day, a federal holiday.

In San Carlos, there stands a statue called “Balancing Act.” It is often decorated for whatever holiday it happens to be, or for fun, when one of the teams like the Giants or Warriors are in the play-offs.

On Friday, May 25, I noticed the statue had no decoration for the Memorial Day weekend. On Saturday, I endeavored to do something about it and went to Judy’s Flags in Belmont and bought an American flag to put in the statue’s hand.

Normally, whatever decoration is placed upon the statue is removed after a week or so by whomever put the decorations up in the first place. To my surprise and chagrin, when I passed by the statue on Tuesday morning on my way to the Plantation for coffee, the flag was removed.

Whoever took it upon themselves to remove the flag, one request: please put it back on the statute as it was or return it to me at the Plantation. Your removal of the flag was not necessary and not appreciated.
