Yesterday April 19, 2022 at the Board of Supervisor Meeting Agenda Item 12 was titled Surplus Safety Equipment, This item was put on the Agenda at the request of Supervisor Canepa at the last meeting.
None of the remaining Supervisors had any questions about the Deliberate well planned moving of $10M of PPE purchased with FEMA monies from the secured location at the San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021.
Through Supervisor Canepa’s skilled questioning technique he was able to get answers to these questions.
Possible liability of San Mateo County having to Refund the $10,000,000.00 to the Federal Government.
The monthly expense of $23,000 per month now for the storage of the PPE in 5 locations.
Mike Callagy is thinking of Building a Wharehouse to store the FEMA funded PPE.
The Dr. Jim Lianides/Mike Callagy/Staff and possibly other word crafters “Progress Report” which was supposed to be an “Independent Investigation.”
San Mateo County Executive Mike Callagy said at the 2:58:25 mark “I think there was things in the Report that were Inaccurate that need to be Cleaned Up.” “That those changes did take place.”
That means that That Mike Callagy and his TEAM word crated the Dr. Jim Lianides Report. All FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors were cool with that.
The Five Supervisors of San Mateo County don’t want the residents/voters to know the Truth about the More than $10M of PPE purchased with Federal Grants FEMA according to James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma.
On January 13, 2022 Mike Callagy County Manager and Supervisor David Canepa, Candidate for Congress, both high ranking San Mateo County Government Officials told ABC 7 News Investigative Reporter/Journalist Dan Noyes who broke the story that they didn’t know anything about the More than $10,000,000.00 of PPE that was moved out of the SMC Event Center. They both were QUICK to identify this as a MISTAKE, and they had NO Idea how this happened, “They were calling in the Marines” and an Independent Investigation was going to be ordered to make sure this never happened again. Notice the Investigation was not meant to identify How many San Mateo County Employees knew about this and for how long.
Here is one of Mike Callagy’s employees who knew in September: Iliana Rodriguez,
I offer these 2 e-mails as a start, this is getting close to answer the question, Who Ordered the More than $10M of PPE to be moved from the secure and protected building at San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021?
Subject: PPE Update Hi Iliana, As you probably are aware, all PPE has been moved out of Fiesta Hall and is currently stored in a fenced area between Gates 9 & 10. The Red Cross was only able to take the 10 adjustable hospital beds (MASH type). Their storage area was not large enough to accommodate the remaining five bariatric beds nor the five “home style” hospital beds, all of which are in the outdoor storage area. The plan is to move as much as possible into Sequoia Hall after the SaaStr Conference, to protect it from the elements. The would require the County to rent Sequoia Hall as it would be filled with PPE. The following items would be relocated first. If any space remains, we will move the most useful of the remaining into Sequoia. Masks Gloves Beds All remaining FMS items and empty containers Bleach Please let me know if you are in agreement with the above.
Next day September 28, 2022 e-mail confirms 5 people knew about it

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.
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.
Before any more crimes are committed, I recommend the San Mateo County Supervisors contact James Brown, let him know you are sorry for the mix up, that whoever gave him the $10,000,000 of PPE did not have the authority to do so. Offer him $10,000 for his time and thank him for volunteering in the first place. San Mateo County should be distributing this PPE it’s in Geat Condition. Get it to the people in San Mateo County.
James Brown CEO West Coast Solutions Inc. San Carlos, San Mateo County 4D’s ago
“We are working hard on getting this into the hands of organizations and groups that need it. Fortunately most of it is in Great condition, vacuum sealed in plastic and only the outer card board was damaged in many cases. Also there was quite a bit stored indoors.“
Why James Brown? isn’t there one employee in San Mateo County who has the capability and skill set to distribute the $9,000,000 of PPE that is in GREAT CONDITION according to him. It should be distributed to San Mateo County period.
If it’s in great condition today January 20, 2022 just think it must have been in great or perfect condition from the time SMC took possession of it, which to this still remains unknown.
When did SMC get this $10M of PPE?
Was it one shipment? what dates? Who signed for it?
Why didn’t SMC distribute it right after they got it?
Why doesn’t San Mateo County distribute it today?
It was No Mistake that this $10M PPE was left outside, It was ordered to be moved outside, part of the plan.
San Mateo Event Center Manager DANA STOEHR: “It’s, it was fully taken care of exactly the way it should have been.”
