Mr. Stogner, 

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines that predates the January 27, 2022 agreement I produced to you.  There was no written agreement prior to January 13, 2022 at 6PM, and there is no separate Financial Agreement.  Because Mr. Brown is not a County employee, I cannot know what he meant in his blog post, but as far as we are aware, he was not referring to a written record.

Thank you,

Caiti

The reason I asked for this document is simple, every time someone gives me more than $10,000,000 of something I like to have some kind written verification, proof, evidence etc that I in fact do have the authority to distribute this PPE which was paid for with FEMA money.

It took San Mateo County Government 90 days to say the truth.

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022.

Large Donation of PPE

Updated: 7d

The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated thru the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

Wine Country Marines will distribute these to organizations in need by appointment only. Date and time slots confirmed upon verification of organization/recipient.

This generous donation consists of surgical gowns that conform to YY/T0506.2-2016 industry standards, head to toe white isolation suits with anti-static properties, blue dental style isolation gowns, vented goggles, face shields also with anti-static properties, 1 gallon bottles of bleach, commercial mop buckets, and mop handles.

The isolation gowns are great for any organization or non-profit that serves at risk community members such as homeless, ill, or others such as patients receiving booster or vaccination shots or applying for benefits or services.

The surgical gowns are great for any organization or non-profit that performs medical services where bodily fluids are collected or exposed.

The goggles provide complete protection of the eye, and are vented to prevent fogging.

The mops, mop buckets and bleach require no explanation, but are shown in the photos below for reference.

If your organization would like some of these products to aid in your mission to serve the community, please RSVP at the following link:

San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocum are responsible for the Oversight of San Mateo County. They are not curious as to the name of the person at San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management who graciously donated thru the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

It’s been 26 Days since ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes broke the story about the MORE than $10,000,000.00 of PPE left unprotected outside the San Mateo County Event Center. Note: January 13, 2022 @ 6:12 PM the story was on the air. That’s 12 minutes after James Brown FB post.

Who had the authority to give James Brown the PPE? At this moment 26 days later that person has not been identified by the Government. Why?

First lets look at the Department of Emergency Management, I did find it at the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. This is the same Sheriff’s Office that recently Investigated itself for the Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering criminal Investigation with the A.G. Office.

SMC Sheriff Lt. John Kovach was in charge of the Homeland Security Division until he suddenly retired in January 2022. I’ve asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos what was his last day on the job. no response.

SMCSO Homeland Security Divison

SMCSO Department of Emergency Management

This might be a good time for the Board of Supervisors to put this back on the Agenda and invite Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Lt. John Kovach, Captain Christina Corpus, James Brown, and Mike Callagy to attend and answer the simple question, WHO gave James Brown the PPE on or before January 13, 2022.

Also for those who don’t know ret. Sheriff Lt. John Kovach and Sheriff Captain Christina Corpus are Husband and Wife.

San Mateo County Health Travis Kusman e-mail

By Michael G. Stogner

My mother said many times, “If you don’t know where something is, it could be anywhere.” The same is true if you don’t know who the person is. It’s been 25 days and San Mateo County residents don’t know who ordered the PPE outside. Who ordered the CONVOY of Garbage Trucks? Who gave James Brown of Wine Country Marines the PPE on or before January 13, 2022. So I thought I would ask Travis Kusman.

Good morning Mr. Kusman,

My name is Michael G. Stogner I am the co-owner of San Mateo County News.com

As I’m sure you are aware, San Mateo County Government has failed to identify the person who ordered the PPE to be moved outside the Event Center. It’s been 25 days.

It was also reported that a Convoy of Garbage Trucks picked up PPE in the last two months.

I have 2 questions for you: 

Are you the person who ordered the PPE moved outside?

Are you the person who ordered the Garbage Trucks?

Thank You in advance for answering these questions.

The Six Candidates for Supervisor are Silent on Mike Callagy and the More than $10M in PPE. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

The right candidate has NOT surfaced yet, they have until March 16, 2022 to file.

San Mateo County Manager/Purchasing Agent/Clerk to the Board of Supervisors Mike Callagy is an At-Will Employee of the Supervisors. Everybody knows that.

Steven Booker, Noelia Corzo, Laura Parmer-Lohan, Virginia Chang Kiraly, Ray Mueller and Charles Stone, are all candidates for the District 2&3 Supervisor of San Mateo County in the June 7, 2022 election.

San Mateo County Government still has not made the January 25, 2022 Supervisor Meeting Public.

Of Interest is Agenda Item 12 watch the 4 Supervisors Violate their Oath.

San Mateo County’s Modern Day Media. PPE Story

By Michael G. Stogner

First reported by Dan Noyes of ABC 7 on January 13, 2022 “MORE than $10,000,000.00” of PPE.

Former President of the Board of Supervisors and Candidate for Congress David Canepa claimed he first heard about it from Dan Noyes that day. He also knows Mike Callagy works for the Supervisors.

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy told Dan Noyes the same thing. He also said “I don’t know” when asked, How much are we talking about? He went from I don’t know to $7M in less than 24 hrs. That is a huge difference, We should start there before anything else happens. HOW MUCH WAS IT?

James Brown President of Wine Country Marines (WCM) posted on Facebook 12 minutes before Dan Noyes broke the story that San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management gave him the PPE and that he would be distributing it on January 25, 2022.

On January 25, 2022 the Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 to give County Manager Mike Callagy authority to distribute the PPE. Up until that moment he was limited to $10,000.00 not $10,000,000.00

That is why I asked Michelle Durand of Mike Callagy’s Office for a copy of the document from SMC to James Brown giving him and the WCM the more than $10M in PPE.

I’m still waiting for that Document.

Hi Michael

Let me see what I can do. With the holiday, it will probably not be before tomorrow but I’ll be back in touch.

Hope you’re well, too.

It’s been 6 days since the January 25, 2022 BOS Meeting. The subject matter was more than $10,000,000.00 of PPE given to Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022. Source ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes.

I’ll bet the 5 San Mateo County Supervisors wished they had asked at least one adult question of County Manager Mike Callagy on January 25, 2022 BOS Meeting Agenda Item 12.

San Mateo County should be thanking ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes for staying on this VERY IMPORTANT story.

San Mateo County Supervisors, What was it?

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

On January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes reported MORE than $10,000,000 of PPE was ordered moved outside the San Mateo County Event Center and there was some minor damage to the Cardboard Boxes. That same day He asked the County Manager Mike Callagy what the value of the PPE was? Mike Callagy responded “I don’t know.”

The next day Mike Callagy issued a Press Release that got published all over the internet that stated approximately $7.7M of SURPLUS PPE.

Mike Callagy went from “I don’t know” to a $3,000,000.00 difference in less than 24 hours.

That number has since been reduced in the media to $7,000,000.00

I thought it would be a Great Idea if the 5 Supervisors did their job and Verify the EXACT Dollar amount of PPE that was purchased with Taxpayer money. Not one of them liked that idea.

Here is a list of some questions I thought they might want to get the answers too. They had NO Interest.

Remove Item 12 from the Agenda January 25, 2022
What is the current Inventory of the PPE at SMCCC?
What was the actual cost of all the PPE stored at SMCCC?
Who ordered the PPE moved outside of the SMCCC? What date?
Who ordered the CONVOY of Garbage trucks to remove PPE from SMCCC? Date?
What is Wine Country Marines experience in distributing PPE items in this volume?
What has been Wine Country Marines largest distribution to date?
What other organizations were considered to distribute this PPE?
Why is there no mention of Distributing this PPE to San Mateo County Only?
Why wasn’t this PPE distributed when SMC first received it?
What made James Brown think the PPE was already donated to WCM?
Who in San Mateo County made him think that?

On January 25, 2022 at the Board of Supervisors Meeting there were only 2 Public Comments on Agenda Item 12. I will publish the Video of that meeting as soon as Mike Callagy allows it on the San Mateo County Website, as of 1/29/2022 @ 7:00 AM it’s not available.
