“Half Moon Bay is following the lead of Governor Newsom in closing Poplar Beach and its parking lot. If the potential crowds here are similar to previous holiday crowds we’ve seen, this kind of action is necessary for the protection of public health and safety,” said Half Moon Bay Mayor Adam Eisen.
Mayor Deidre Martin of Pacifica, announced the closing its beaches and parking lots from Sunrise Friday to Sunrise Monday, July 6. The following locations are affected:
Pacifica State Beach (Linda Mar Beach) and north and south parking lots,
Crespi parking lot in front of the Pacifica Community Center,

San Mateo County Beaches are like a Magnet, Now is not the time to enjoy them.Protect the residents from Pacifica to Pescadero. Tell everyone to stay home.
Stay Home, Wear a Mask, Protect All County Health Officers, Doctors, Nurses, Medical Staff, Firefighters, Police Officers, Store Clerks. The time to open up is when they say they feel safe and have all the PPE to do their jobs safely. SMC has never been there yet.
San Mateo County has a chance to show the WORLD they know what the word Pandemic means. Show the World that you take your Health and their Health threat seriously. You can’t blame other Countries for considering the Banning of Americans to travel, Who in their right mind would let us in.
Learn to pronounce
(of a disease) prevalent over a whole country or the world.
Political Interest have never been the same as Medical Interest. YOU are responsible for your Health and those you Love and Respect.
San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow is the one and only person I recommend you seek medical PANDEMIC advice from.
Here are some comments from Healt Officials from LATIMES article today.
“Every single one of those county health officers faces an impossible set of circumstances,” said David Relman, a Stanford doctor.
“Our professionalism is being exploited.” nurses at one hospital have gone on strike to protest what they say is understaffing and a lack of protective gear.
It has left some medical experts to warn the state is not experiencing a second wave, but a failure to maintain the flattened curve of the first one.
If the spread isn’t stopped soon, they warn, it may become impossible.
“It could get to some point where there literally is just too much disease to manage,” Relman said.
“I’m not sure why everyone is so surprised that we’re surging again. It never went away, and we opened up” while mask wearing was being “politicized,” the physician said, calling it “very frustrating.”
“It leaves us feeling in like we’re not enough,” McIntosh said. “I feel like this is all setting us up to fail.”
San Mateo County Residents show the world that you are Serious Citizens.
As District Attorney of San Mateo County, I join the other District Attorneys in California in condemning the senseless death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I extend condolences to the family of George Floyd and to the communities across this nation that are in mourning over Mr. Floyd’s death. As a society, we must bring an end to bigotry and racism in our country, and it is the solemn responsibility of all government leaders and every member of the criminal justice system to achieve this goal. The citizens of this country cannot rest until we bring an end to racial inequity and racism in our country. After 43 years as a prosecutor in San Mateo County, it saddens me that shocking events such as Mr. Floyd’s death and the violence that followed continue to occur. We will continue to collaborate with San Mateo County law enforcement agencies to train their officers to insure proper and lawful conduct by officers and to appropriately investigate any conduct that violates the law. Every member of the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office will resolutely continue to seek justice and fairness in our criminal justice system. To this end, I have signed the attached statement of the California District Attorneys Association issued this past weekend condemning racism and bigotry. I hope and pray the principles enunciated in this statement may soon be achieved.
Stephen M. Wagstaffe
The Prosecutor the Judges are talking about below is Stephen M. Wagstaffe “his ulterior motive was race-based.”
 But Jefferson was not the only African-American the prosecutor peremptorily challenged. He also struck the only other African-American potential juror, and, in so doing, pro- vided several pretextual explanations for that strike. In light of this additional strike, the prosecutor’s proffer of two ques- tionable explanations for his strike of Jefferson take on a sig- nificance that they might otherwise lack. See Lewis v. Lewis, 321 F.3d 824, 831 (9th Cir. 2003) (“The proffer of various faulty reasons and only one or two otherwise adequate rea- sons, may undermine the prosecutor’s credibility to such an extent that a court should sustain a Batson challenge.”). At a minimum, these dubious explanations reaffirm our conclusion that the prosecutor’s actual reason for striking M.C. differed from those that he asserted and that his ulterior motive was race-based. See Kesser, 465 F.3d at 369 (“The prosecutor’s willingness to make up nonracial reasons for striking [three minority jurors] makes it even harder to believe that his rea- sons for striking [a fourth juror] were race-neutral.”).
 Taken as a whole, the record compels a finding that the prosecutor’s non-race based reasons for peremptorily striking M.C. were pretexts. The fact that the prosecutor peremptorily struck the only other African-American juror in the jury pool and provided at least two implausible reasons for that challenge reinforces this conclusion. We therefore hold that both the California Court of Appeal and the district court clearly erred when they found that Ali failed to establish pur- poseful discrimination. We further hold that, in light of the overwhelming evidence indicating that the prosecutor in Ali’s case acted with discriminatory intent when he struck M.C., the California appellate court’s finding to the contrary was an unreasonable determination of the facts in light of the evi- dence presented in the state court proceedings. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(2). We therefore reverse the judgment of the dis- trict court and remand with directions to issue a conditional writ of habeas corpus requiring Ali’s release from custody, unless the State elects to retry Ali within a reasonable time to be determined by the district court.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos finally releases some highly edited version of what they claim happened. Here is what a reasonable person would not see in this creation.
You do not see the body camera video of the FIRST Deputy who fired at her. You do NOT see Sandra Harmon firing her shotgun period. You do not hear her shotgun being fired.
This is why the residents should demand all videos be released the day of the event. Today 41 days after her death the Sheriff produces Video with no captions of who is shooting, how many shots for each Deputy. Not one Deputy used a lesser force while she was unarmed and several feet from the shotgun.
Why did Sheriff Bolanos star in this video? When Chinedu Okobi was killed by Six Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018, Sheriff Bolanos issued two False News Releases with about five false statements, Now he is staring and he knows the Video does Not show her shooting her gun, and how many shots were fired at her and missed when she was unarmed?

Can you tell me if Joe Goethals is still employed by your office and if not what was his last date of employment?
San Mateo County News.com
The City website shows he is still prosecutor at the D.A.’s Office.
Mayor Joe Goethals is a life-long resident of San Mateo. Joe was elected in November 2013, was re-elected in 2017 and is currently serving his second term. He works as a prosecutor in the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. Joe served on the Public Works Commission 2010-2013, and was serving as the Chair of the Public Works Commission when he was elected. Joe also has a Master’s degree in Public Health and he served on the Peninsula Health Care District Board prior to being elected to the City Council.
The residents of San Mateo have a right to know why he has not disclosed his departure from the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office 45 days ago. Did all the council members know of his status? Is he working for another D.A.’s office? What was the reason he is no longer working there?
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.

Supervisor Don Horsley has already discussed and shared his thoughts, his personal opinions with Congresswoman Jackie Speiers daughter Stephanie Sierra.She is a reporter for ABC 7 KGO May 8, 2020. She somehow got interested in a meeting that took place 3 weeks earlier. Why? She also Interviewed Kevin Mullin. Why?
Don Horsley has placed this Vague subject on Tuesday’s agenda, I’ve asked him to explain what his wishes to accomplish, He has not responded.
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MAY 19, 2020
AGENDA ITEM 5
Discuss and/or Act on concerns regarding Harbor Board of Commissioners and request for updated Municipal Service Review on San Mateo County Harbor District by San Mateo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo).
Sponsors: Don Horsley
Don Horsley wants to Discuss his concerns regarding Harbor Board of Commissioners. Which ones?
A Republican up until Nov 15, 2019, Virginia Chang Kiraly changed her voter registration from Republican to Democrat in preparation for upcoming campaign/s. That is the exact same thing Jerry Hill did. Virginia Kiraly who recently Victim Shamed S.B. “Stop Lying Sabrina” She couldn’t possibly be talking about the Pornographic Photos sent to Sabrina.
Democrat Sabrina Brennan a victim of Sexual Harassment by another Harbor Commissioner. The Harbor District dealt with that, like San Mateo County does with all of their Pornographic Passing and Child Molesting friends. They hire an Attorney (First Red Flag) to do an Independent Investigation which translates to results favoring those who paid for it.
Supervisor Don Horsley, a former school teacher and Sheriff of SMC wants Commissioner Sabrina Brennan to stop mentioning Pornographic Photos and Sexual Harrassment at the Harbor District Meetings. WHY?
The answer is simple Supervisor Don Horsley Supports it. He wants VICTIMS to Shut UP.
Supervisor Horsley has been interfering with the Harbor Districts business for years. May 26, 2015 Meeting is a perfect example.
Let the Commissioners solve this, Sabrina Brennan the victim has every right to mention this at every single meeting if she wants to. Perhaps at the Public Comment section just like the BOS meetings where serious subjects are made public and the Supervisors simply ignore them.
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.
If you would like to make a Public Comment to the Supervisors on this item you can send it by e-mail. It will be read into the record.
Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.
The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.
You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.
I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.
Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.
Sandra Lee Harmon 56, a Mother and Wife was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies less than 8 hours later at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California.

Dear Supervisors, I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened. Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018
“Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.” Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.
Thank You Michael G. Stogner
No need to read below just for reference. Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.
I would like to personally thank Him/Her for doing their job and honoring the Oath they took. Since 1998 I have known that crimes are being committed in San Mateo County Courtrooms in front of Sheriff Deputies who are sworn officers. They have a Duty to protect the Public.
This for the moment unknown Sheriff Deputy did the right thing. He/She informed Hon. Judge Lisa Novak that he had personally viewed the Video that Sheriff Sergeant Michael Edward Otte just testified to under oath & the penalty of Perjury that he never took with his personal cellphone. At the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, she informed the judges in attendance that She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom. You would think that is Newsworthy not in San Mateo County.
Former Sheriff Sergeant Otte has quietly moved on and he has Invoked his 5th amendment rights.
Who in SMC knew about this Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, County Counsel John Beiers and Deputy Counsel David Silberman? Several Judges,
You would have thought the Government would have cut this case loose after this but that is not how it works in San Mateo County.

Think about that this for a moment, you are a woman who lives in Half Moon Bay, you have 2 brothers who recently had interactions with SMCSO who provide law enforcement services there. You take the time to personally go to the Substation and report your concerns about those interactions. A short time later YOU are arrested at your home, Sgt. Otte is videoing it on his cellphone. You are in the court system for 4 years. San Mateo County Counsel is going to inflict as much personal pain and suffering on you as possible.

January 7, 2020 San Mateo County Counsel filed a document with the Superior Court claiming the San Mateo County District Attorney Inspectors William Massey and John Warren are the subjects of an Internal Investigation which just recently commenced, is ongoing and will not be completed until the former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal trial is completed.
Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s criminal case has been going for more than 5 yrs.
It is a Penal Code 115A Felony to file a False Instrument (written document) with the court.
San Mateo County Counsel than asked the court to SEAL their Document. January 9, 2020
As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record. Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.
