Mark De Paula a San Mateo County Concerned Citizen is requesting all Elected Officials to withdraw Endorsement of Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018.

Mark De Paula

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Mark De Paula is about as Good & Concerned Citizen as you can get.

In 2015 he personally went to Las Vegas and invested 3 days of his time and money to get to the truth about what really happened April 21, 2007 ending a 2 year Sting by the FBI called Operation Dollhouse where Carlos G. Bolanos was caught and detained Inside a single family residence at 3474 Eldon Street Las Vegas, Nevada as a CUSTOMER of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves which included Children.

Las Vegas Metro Police Department Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes both placed him inside the single family residence. For the last 11 years he has refused to discuss this subject and none of the 7 advertising businesses claiming to be newspapers have ever asked him. Q. Carlos G. Bolanos where you ever inside 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada on a Saturday night of April 21, 2007? Why would two law enforcement Officers who were working the Sting Operation that night say you were inside if you weren’t?

What Carlos G. Bolanos did communicate at a News Conference at 400 County Center Redwood City on April 24, 2007. He denied that he went there to pay for sex, which brings up the next question. What was your intention regarding the payment for sex in an illegal bordello?

Mark De Paula has recently received a CD-Rom titled Operation Dollhouse from the FBI after a 3 year wait. He is prepared to share this information with every single elected official who is currently endorsing Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff of San Mateo County 2018. He is confident they do not know the truth about that night and if the did they would withdraw their endorsements immediately. He has met and communicated with Assemblyman Kevin Mullins’ office and shared this information so far Mullins is still endorsing Bolanos. Below is photo of FBI CD-Rom that another Good and Concerned Citizen John Ullom received. Mark’s has his name on it. So that makes 2 citizens who spent the time and money to get to the truth and 7 advertising businesses who didn’t.

Lets see who is the first elected official to come to his/her senses and withdraw their endorsement.

Mr. De Paula has now gone to the Board of Supervisors’ Office and met with staff to formally request that each withdraw their endorsement after being briefed on the information that he now has from the FBI. Mr. De Paula will be speaking at the March 13,  2018 (9:00 sharp) Board of Supervisor meeting during public comment which is normally limited to 2 minutes, he has requested he have 3 minutes and that has been approved by President Dave Pine.

Mr. De Paula has also contacted the local businesses who look and act like Newspapers in SMC. They have known about him finally receiving a response from the FBI for over a month. Jon Mays of the San Mateo Daily Journal called Mark last night and expressed an interest, What took so long Mr. Mays?

Update: Mark De Paula presented his information to the Unions, Here is one response notice the Sheriff Office is not mentioned. Congratulations Mr. De Paula.

Questions for San Mateo County Chief Communications Officer Michelle Durand about the Violent Coup of July 12, 2016.

By Michael G. Stogner

July 1, 2016 Ms. Durand issues a NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

“San Mateo County Statements on Sheriff Munks’ Retirement” was the title.

At the bottom of page Please note: “The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors will discuss next steps to fill the remaining two years of Munks’ term at its regular July 12, 2016 meeting.

July 5, 2016 2:07 PM Ms. Durand emails Almanac reporter Dave Boyce and again states, “The Board of Supervisors will discuss at its July 12, 2016 how it wants to proceed”

July 5, 2016 Internal -Departmental Correspondence from County Manager’s Office and County Counsel, that’s John Maltbie and John Beiers to Honorable Board of Supervisors.

Subject : Vacancy in the Office of Sheriff

Recommendation: Make appointment or call an election. That is a Huge difference from what Michelle Durand was telling the 750,000 plus residents of San Mateo County, which was to discuss which PROCESS to choose either appointment or election process.

John Maltbie is Michelle Durand’s boss. Ms. Durand never made a correction to her July 1, 2016 Press Release but somebody deleted it from the County’s website. She also never e-mailed the reporter from the Almanac about this Huge change to mislead the public. The Sheriff is the most important Office in the County it should be voted on by the People.

Another example of filling a vacancy in SMC November 10, 2008

Inter-Departmental Correspondence from County Counsel to Hon. Board of Supervisors.

Subject : Process to Fill Vacancy On Board of Supervisors

Recommendation: Approve a process to fill the vacancy caused by Supervisor Hill’s election to the State Legislature.

Note: The 2008 Correspondence to the BOS did not include the County Manager/Clerk to the Supervisors. It clearly stated PROCESS

Concerned SMC residents, Please Attend  July 21, 2017 @ 2:PM Sentencing Hearing of Mathew Graves.

 

Google Prosecutorial Misconduct and my name, you will see some of my efforts to Eliminate Prosecutorial Misconduct in San Mateo County for the last 17 years. The leaders of SMC both elected and appointed have been warned, notified and asked to stop this, to date they have refused.

 

Editor,

Response to SMDJ article “Jury issues first-ever human trafficking conviction in county: Man found guilty of crimes stemming from Burlingame.”

By Anna Schuessler Daily Journal staff Feb 18, 2017

When I think about Human Trafficking of Underaged Sex Slaves in San Mateo County, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos comes to mind. He was caught and detained as a CUSTOMER inside a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada on April 21, 2007 around 9:20 PM by the FBI and LVMPD. There were several women in the home.

The residents of SMC all know what our District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe thinks about “Those Who Matter,” being caught as customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves. Here is his e-mail I received from a FOIA request.

Steve Wagstaffe e-mail sent 4/25/07 10:20 AM

Greg and Carlos

Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time.

To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement

are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the

modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is

to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by

tomorrow.

My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.

Steve

Mathew Graves turned down a 10 year prison term plea bargain because he had faith in our judicial system and he knew he was not guilty of the charges the DA charged him with. He faces 30 years in prison next Friday.

San Mateo County’s Biggest Misconduct Case. Former Deputy Juan P. Lopez has just switched attorneys. Tony Serra has replaced Stuart Hanlon.

The reason I call this the biggest Misconduct case is it involves, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office and County Counsel Office all conspiring to harm Juan P. Lopez.

It has been almost 3 years since District Attorney told the public Juan Lopez was involved in smuggling a cell phone and drugs to a gang member in his jail cell. To this day there is NO EVIDENCE of that being true.

The YES on Measure K Mailer.

Measure K is a 20 year extension of Measure A which the leaders of San Mateo County misled the voters according to the San Mateo County Grand Jury.

San Mateo County Grad Jury Report

Says: Continuing to combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children.

That sounds very noble and the right thing to do.

When any elected official or resident of San Mateo County hears about Human Trafficking they all think about San Mateo County Undersheriff Carlos G. Bolanos being detained as a CUSTOMER of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves on April 21, 2007, in a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada in a 2 year multi jurisdictional Sting called Operation Dollhouse lead by the FBI. Everyone knows that Carlos Bolanos has refused to comment about it.

San Mateo County Managers Office has invested a lot of money to set up a website to assure the residents that the Measure A money is being spent properly. What are some examples to back up the statement about combating Human Trafficking and the exploitation of children. What did we get for the $140,000 Measure A investment for the contract with former Deputy Chief of SSF Police Mike Brosnan. He was hired as San Mateo County’s Human Trafficking Coordinator. His new 1 year contract has just been approved at $280,000 of Measure A money.

Try to find it yourself.

SMDJ Journalist Bill Silverfarb doesn’t take credit for this story, Why?

You couldn’t possibly mislead the 83,500 readers more if you tried. No mention that the appointment of Carlos Bolanos to Sheriff was illegal. Ask Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Adrienne Tissier, Dave Pine, Carole Groom, How many members of the public attended to speak in favor or against Carlos Bolanos that day. Try ZERO.

Bolanos named sheriff: Board of Supervisors appoints undersheriff to replace Munks
July 13, 2016, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report no mention of Bill Silverfarb attending that meeting.
 On a split vote, Carlos Bolanos was appointed sheriff by the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Tuesday to fill out the term of Greg Munks, who is retiring because of health reasons.

Bolanos, the current undersheriff, takes over the sheriff’s job July 17.

The board was faced with either appointing a replacement for Munks or calling an election for this November’s ballot to give the public a chance to choose the county’s next top cop.

Before the vote, however, officials with the offices of U.S. reps. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, and Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, read a letter to the board urging a more transparent process.

The letter spoke of rumors about Munks retiring early so that Bolanos could be swept into the office.

Munks announced last year that he would not seek re-election in 2018 and Bolanos announced his candidacy for the position shortly after.

A November election, according to Speier and Eshoo, would also not be fair to other potential candidates since it is only 109 days away.

They urged the board to interview many candidates for the job before naming a replacement to show an “absence of a pre-ordained outcome.”

The board voted 3-2 in support of Bolanos with supervisors Carole Groom and Dave Pine voting against his appointment.

“An election is a better choice to go. It creates a sense of legitimacy,” Groom said.

Pine leaned toward also letting other candidates apply for the job as the congresswomen suggested and said an election would be the best route to go typically.

He said the board could call a special election in March to give other candidates more time to prepare brisk campaigns. That would come at a cost of about $500,000, however.

But there are currently no other candidates seeking to run for sheriff. San Mateo Police Chief Susan Manheimer expressed an early interest but announced recently she would not run for the job.

Supervisors Slocum, Tissier and Horsley all enthusiastically supported the appointment of Bolanos.

Horsley, former sheriff himself, said it was unnecessary to conduct a nationwide search to find a new sheriff.

“Carlos has done an outstanding job,” Horsley said.

The Sheriff’s Office has done well in recent years in recruiting more women and minorities to the force and in providing community policing in Millbrae, San Carlos and Half Moon Bay, Horsley said.

Tissier said appointing Bolanos to the position brings immediate stability to the department.

Board President Slocum said Bolanos has a proven commitment to community policing as the Sheriff’s Office also patrols North Fair Oaks and other unincorporated areas of the county.

“We know what we are getting with Bolanos,” Slocum said.

In a prepared statement, Bolanos said he was honored by the appointment and thanked the board for their trust.

“I will continue to ensure that we have a safe county for residents and visitors, and that the Sheriff’s Office not only maintains — but strives to improve — the outstanding relationships we have with the communities we serve,” Bolanos said.

Horsley also praised Munks for his work as sheriff and wished him good health. The two worked alongside each other for more than 13 years.

Munks is currently on medical leave. He had a third heart procedure Monday.

He said when he announced his retirement two weeks ago that the condition is not life-threatening but has affected his work duties.

Munks was elected sheriff in June 2006 after serving nearly 14 years as undersheriff. Voters re-elected Munks twice. Bolanos has served as undersheriff for nine years and was the chief of police in Redwood City for 12 years prior to that.

In 2007, Munks ran into some controversy after he was briefly detained at a massage parlor, with Bolanos outside, during a Las Vegas police sting labeled “Operation Dollhouse.” Neither were ever charged and Munks later admitted though he thought it was a legitimate business, it was not.

It wasn’t a massage parlor and Bolanos was NOT outside. Bill Silverfarb knows that.

It was a single family residence of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a child. 

Two Las Vegas Metro Police Officers who were working that night both stated “Munks and Bolanos were inside the residence.” Spokesperson Bill Cassell, and Lt. Karen Hughes of Vice.

April 22, 2007 UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos went on a Media Misinformation blitz. “Its not illegal to be at a Massage Parlor.” That is dishonest. He was not detained for 3 hours because he was at a massage parlor and he and all elected officials and advertising businesses know that.

The San Mateo Daily Journal never asks Bolanos How many minutes were you detained? Why?

Bill Silverfarb was at the July 12, 2016 Board of Supervisor Meeting. He also failed to mention that Carole Groom and Don Horsley were both asked to recuse themselves from agenda item 7.Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 11.34.06 AM

The Supervisors were faced with DISCUSSING the appointment process vs. the election process. They were misguided by John Maltbie the Clerk of the Supervisors who did not mention the 2012 Grand Jury Report Appointment vs. Election involving the appointment of Carole Groom to fill the vacant seat caused by Jerry Hill.
