Results Certified for the June 5, 2018 Statewide Direct Primary Election

Mark Church has certified the June 5, 2018 Election results for San Mateo County.

The Sheriff Office race was an exciting one with three candidates. Mark Melville and Heinz Puschendorf both San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies and Carlos Bolanos the illegally appointed Sheriff who started his campaign over three years ago to make sure no deputy would run against him. That didn’t happen. Mark Melville told several editors including Jon Mays of the San Mateo Daily Journal in May that he watched a 3 minute video of Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula’s presentation to the Board of Supervisors on March 13, 2018. He described it as brilliant and clearly stated based on that presentation it proved that Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos were liars. Heinz Puschendorf was a last minute write in candidate told several reporters including Dave Boyce that in 2007 when he was the President of the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA he was ordered by UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos not to talk about or mention the FBI Human Trafficking Sting Operation Dollhouse where he was caught and detained as a customer on April 21, 2007.

Melville and Heinz were very brave to offer their services to the residents of San Mateo County. Look no further than the last write in candidate former deputy Juan P. Lopez.

Imagine what the outcome of this election would have been had Jon Mays printed the brave statement Mark Melville made in May. He and Jerry Lee didn’t think it was newsworthy, 83,500 readers didn’t know about a candidate deputy calling his boss a liar.

That is a big deal. Another big deal is that 100 voters spelled Heinz Puschendorf correctly.

To the 52,996 voters for Mark Melville, I recommend you send him your e-mail addresses so that he can keep you informed if anything bad should happen to him. Same for Mr. Puschendorf. Note Mark Melville has not conceded yet, with close to 30,000 votes in Carlos Bolanos favor 81,032.

In another race between Nancy Magee and Gary Waddell for Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Waddell conceded right away with less than 1% difference.

Magee 65,683 Waddell 64,485

For the record I believe SMC Sheriff Deputies Heinz Puschendorf and Mark Melville.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy, Victim and Whistleblower Heinz Puschendorf.

San Mateo County Family Court is stressful enough without the illegal orders from Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos to have his Deputies interfere with a parent while in the courtroom. I can relate because in 2002 Sherif Don Horsley and UnderSheriff Greg Munks did the exact same thing to me. Had two deputies detain me and force me to leave the Family Law Court where I had a hearing. This is how the Thugs do it. Michael G. Stogner

Press Release

My name is Heinz Puschendorf- I am a 21-year veteran Deputy Sheriff of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. I was a long time Member and Representative of the San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association- being the last Past- President of the Association 2006-2008.

I am also a write-in candidate for Sheriff of San Mateo County- June 5, 2018 election.

I releasing this information about YET another series of Aggressive Bullying and multiple corrupt actions that I’ve personally experienced, as well as in representing hundreds of past/current Sheriff’s Office Employees (as recent as 2014) and/or even representing myself, which has forced me to whistle-blow Dozens of times in these past years

My message TODAY is very plain and clearly:  The San Mateo County Management structure which encompasses, but is not limited to: The Sheriff’s Office, the Human Resources Department, The District Attorney’s Office and the Board of Supervisors have all worked cooperatively to violate their Oaths of Service by harassing, defrauding employees and undermining anybody that would be able to damage the County’s Executive Management structure.

The incident I am describing today is yet another set of deeds that begins from the top (as orders being passed down through the chain of command) with the current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, down to his Undersheriff Ed Wood, then through all of the Sheriff’s Office Management team (Assistant Sheriff’s, Captains. Lieutenants and usually ending at the rank of sergeant against line level staff. Alas, Frequently, over the past ten years, there has been Questionable Motives imposed by the Deputy Sheriff’s Association Executive Management (Mostly by the Current President) who has fallen directly in line with Carlos Bolanos, which has helped to foster, already Hostile situations, in which they can defame, defraud or embarrass individuals. Those actions have included NOT properly Representing Turmoiled Employees being pressed with arrest and/or threatened with severe punitive actions. I have knowledge of this, because, since 2008 I have assisted in filling that VOID for Employees. The Union is aware of incidents and will also just take a PASSIVE Aggressive approach to “PICK and CHOOSE” who they will defend, with the Current President making outlandish statements in the past that he “IS NOT Accountable as President to ANY Members in the Union Membership,” Although he and the Executive Board (his cronies) live “High on the Hog” from OUR Union Dues.

My current incident This past Friday, May 25, 2018 in which, under orders of Carlos Bolanos and Undersheriff Ed Wood, a Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s abused their authority, restricted my freedom/ability to voluntarily leave (I was then OFFICIALLY under arrest, not free to leave, which then led to not properly releasing me through legal process), assaulting me, harassing and threatening me, while I was awaiting the beginning of my Family Court case. Then the subsequent series of NON-actions by all of San Mateo County’s pre-ordained utilities to protect employees, whistleblowers and/or individuals who want to report misdeed, misconduct and an overall lack of really trying to find the truth of complaints:

At 900 am, I tried entering the Redwood City Courthouse building through the employee entrance, which is located on the North-side, MAIN Public Entrance, by using my Sheriff’s Office issued access card. I tried at least a dozen times (swiping my card) to enter, BUT I was denied entry. I thought it was strange as I saw others before and after me enter via the same access door (so my card should have worked as it has in my 20+ years of service).

Over the past 4 years I have been working through Disability from an on-Duty injury. And I have always entered through these public access doors. I followed proper protocol and identified myself and advised I DID NOT have any weapons to declare. I spoke to several staff members and a sergeant (later involved in this incident), as I was going to Courtroom C on the 7th Floor, where I sat with my attorney, awaiting the start of my Family Law Court case.

At 10:00 am, a Sergeant (whom I had spoken with earlier in the morning upon entering building) approached me and said I “Should step outside the Courtroom, into the hallway” because he had “something to tell me.” I told the Sergeant My Court case was next and we could speak after I was done. The Sergeant insisted I go out, so I told my Attorney that I would return shortly, after speaking to My Sergeant in the Hallway, so my case wouldn’t get delayed.

I followed my Sergeant out of the courtroom, and as I got through the door and on the railed 3-foot-wide ramp exit (which creates a fenced in feeling from the doorway), I was besieged and surrounded by Sheriff’s armed/uniformed staff (2 sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s). I immediately became scared and felt threatened since they all in unison began to speak, push and close the space around me.

I asked the Sergeants what was wrong and they said I “illegally entered the building, NOT being an employee” and I “should not have by-passed the security checkpoint”- to which I responded “I’m an employee, although injured and being defrauded of my legal Worker’s comp rights at the Direction and orders of Sheriff Bolanos and Human Resources. BUT I entered and conducted myself legally and appropriately, reminding them ALL I had at one time or another trained each of them, as well as I have been a Sheriff’s Employee longer than ANY of them.

In Fact, I am still listed as a full-time employee on non-paid status (which actually is a non-existent status), which was just recently published in a local news story in the past week. So, I told them I wanted to go back in to the Court & all (uniform staff mentioned) stopped me by grabbing my clothes and/or physically using their bodies so I could not move or leave and told me “YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK IN.”

During this entire event I was Loud, verbally, had my hands/palms raised and open to show I was not a threat and to be sure I was not misunderstood. BUT this also served as another way for the entire 7th floor to hear, then see and by coming out into the hallway, know what was happening.

I then wanted to know under what authority they were detaining me and they all told me it was a standing order and that if I wasn’t so “mentally unstable and violent” that BECAUSE of their concern for the safety of the judge, the courtroom and the public, I’d be “handcuffed and arrested” forcibly missing Family Court and I “would have lots of other bad things happen… so just relax or else.”

I then said I wanted to speak with the Transportation/Court security Lieutenant, when he spoke up (in plain clothes a few feet away on the other side of the railing, but through staff told Me again I was illegally inside of the building and I was going to be arrested as a danger since I was “unstable.”

I then explained “I am an employee” and they all became more aggressive towards me as the Lt also got in my face, then in a threatening tone said “The Sheriff said it’s a standing order and its posted outside the entrance.” The Lieutenant then told me that if I didn’t comply he’d have me arrested.

We bantered back and forth for another several minutes, when I told all of them that I don’t understand why they’d be picking on me, because I know all the rules we operate under and even at one time or another had trained them all and that they were illegally detaining me.

I then demanded to speak with the Lt’s immediate boss (Captain), but he told me there wasn’t one in. I then demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (one of the 3), But the Lt told they were also not in today.

I was being continuously pushed and prodded by the staff and in an attempt to get me to fight with them several times and all of them continued using their bodies to keep me from leaving, re-entering the courtroom or just being able to leave for a total of at least 15 minutes.

I then specifically asked about Undersheriff Woods and Sheriff Bolanos and the Lt told me don’t worry they’re aware, “BUT you violated the law, because you are NOT an employee to enter that way.”

So, after several more minutes of arguing I then advised them that I would go back to court and we could address their inappropriate actions which are ILEGAL and I was going to file complaints against them: Lt Allen said something to the effect of “Well it won’t go anywhere, except ad for you in all ways so I’m not worried.”

Several more minutes of our arguing and the Staff’s pushing, prodding of me when (someone from inside of Courtroom 7C opened the door so I was then able to scoot past and away from my Aggressors, pushing us out of the way. Although I was told I could not leave or enter my courtroom- I did so in an attempt to get protection.

I was then followed in by one of the Sergeants and he sat behind me in the courtroom as My case was called. After My hearing the Sergeant followed me over the next 30 plus minutes staying near me as I exited the courtroom (with my attorney) and followed (in close proximity behind) me while in the courthouse, until I went down to the 3rd Floor – Sheriff’s Administrative office to report the incident and file complaints.

While at the Sheriff’s Admin Office I WAS again met with and given a cold reception by another Lt (temporary -Services/Internal Affairs commander). This Lt then tried to brush off the incident until I demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (since the previous Lt advised me the Undersheriff & Sheriff were a party directing the actions in this matter).

Unfortunately, this was not the first time I have whistle-blown. And in just a short time this incident was again flowing the same dysfunctional and repetitive path of so many other past cases, which were SQUASHED.

So, I again, filed complaints/crimes and wrongdoing: according to ALL policies, Orders, Contracts and legal processes: going to the Sheriff’s Office, to Human Resources, to the District Attorney’s Office and the Union.

As of Today, the past practices of trying to let a complaint fall dead to the wayside by NON-Action is why  I am taking this opportunity to Expose these ILEGAL actions, in hopes that the Media, Other Local/State/Federal Elected Officials, Residents and Voters of San Mateo County will take action, DEMAND the immediate resignation and/or follow up so as to administer Any/All other Appropriate Actions/Punishment which should be taken, to assure this type of Abuse does not happen again and that it IS NOT going to be tolerated.

There is plenty of evidence to Prove ALL my Allegations for this particular incident and My greatest HOPE is that ALL of the PAST and/or Previous Employees and staff that have been wronged will also stand up and speak out!

This has been yet another series of BULLYING and abuse of Powers that has been commonplace in Our Sheriff’s Office for Years. These actions are just like the other illegal actions by these same parties to falsely harass Juan Lopez in 2014. Juan Lopez was a write in candidate and he was fired, harassed and wrongfully prosecuted for A LONG LIST of Falsified Charges, which now HAS the Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe liable for their parts in False Charges being presented to the San Mateo Grand Jury. There is A FEDERAL Lawsuit recently filed for these allegations. I am going to be the next case against All of the same people, with an almost exact duplicated set of FALSIFIED Details.

Because I am a Write in candidate for Sheriff and opposing – not Just Carlos Bolanos, but all the other INCUMBENTS who portray the same corrupt, perverted, evil and overall criminal actions by MOST of those he has promoted and surrounded himself with at the Executive Management Administration and are also currently running for Re-election this June 5th.

I have been the whistleblower of several of the most recent incidents that have transpired, as well as many past criminal/illegal activities by Various San Mateo County Officials and Officers/Staff. This has also included my Exposing that (past Sheriff’s) Greg Munks and Don Horsley along with multiple others (including Myself) know that CARLOS BOLANOS and GREG MUNKS have LIED COMPLETELY about the 2007 Las Vegas OPERATION DOLLHOUSE Underaged SEX Slave Brothel Arrest/Detention.

My Criticism has also extended to ALL of San Mateo County:

Ø the Board of Supervisors (From at least 2007 Until and through NOW- Which includes Jerry Hill, Mark Church, Don Horsley and Rich Gordon)

Ø The District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe

Ø The County Managers (Maltbie and Bosch)

Ø Human Resources (Specifically Faiza Steele)

Ø The San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association (Mainly Current President, who was also aware of the Details, Information and evidence I uncovered)

Ø Elected Public Officials (Feinstein, Pelosi, Eshoo, Jerry Hill, Rich Gordon- to name JUST a few)

ALL of these Individuals have Culpability and are Directly connected to working on keeping Me and ANY/ALL others who know what happened (as well as with other violations) to be suppressed, Harassed and Ordered to NEVER Mention the LAS VEGAS Brothel EVER AGAIN!!! OR the Person who does speak out, they would BE DRONED OUT of the Sheriff’s Office and Fired using any and/or ALL Means Necessary to GET RID of THEM!!!

At the end of the Bolanos and the third Sheriff’s Candidate Mark Melville, Debacle – I became infuriated seeing Carlos Bolanos being so smug, with HIS Entire Administration sitting literally in front of Melville (in an intimidating presence), then there were 3 Executive Management Members and Carlos Bolanos himself approached me (spitefully, knowing I was disabled and being defrauded of ALL my Legal Rights), they each asked me HOW MY RETIREMENT WAS…. I was upset and loudly (with several witnesses) told them What Jackelopes they were and THAT I AM STILL BEING DEFRAUDED of my PAY.

Carlos Bolanos then told me he would check on things, BUT HIS understanding was that I ONLY Had to SIGN a PARTICULAR

Piece of PAPER (NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT). I then asked him if he could expedite things so I could retire and get paid, since I have not been paid in OVER A YEAR. Carlos B. said he would and, that he’d call me the next morning. At about 10:00am I had not received a call from Bolanos, so I tried calling him, but he never did. SO, I immediately went to the Elections Office to file my paperwork.

 #VOTENONINCUMBENT             #VOTECHANGE

My platform is FOR REFORM, which is Hard enough on its own, BUT with these Historical types of Coercion, My Attempting to reverse all the other Frauds being committed by and for the Sheriff’s Office (Supported by ALL Other County Admin Heads) is insurmountable Alone.

It will take All of San Mateo County (MEDIA, Politicians, Residents and ESPECIALLY VOTERS) to come together and force these individuals out and CHANGE the entire disposition and demeaner of Corrupted individuals and/or system. These Actions in Criminal Investigations would be Cause for INDICTMENTs under the RICO (or Criminal Enterprise/Syndicate) Act. NOT to mention a series of Brown Act Violations as well (for the ELECTED individuals).

I have attempted to CONTACT ALL Sources RECENTLY, BUT Before My Incident. SO, I hope Others (Politicians, Voters, the General Public and/or the FBI) will NOW take serious ACTION.

I live in an extreme state of fear, Just like Many other  of the Hundreds to Thousands  of Employees/Ex-Employees) awaiting the inevitable FINAL series of predictable Maneuvers or BLOWS by the County/Sheriff’s Office to next destroy an individual’s credibility with pure lies and search warrants, OR as Bolanos supporters have recently done, creating a hostile web-site and using Web to Cell phone technologies to negatively interact and push their PRO-Bolanos tactics, BLASTING ANY/ALL opponents in this Election.

It’s NOT Too Late to FIX, Please #standupspeakout LET Them Know, that this is NOT acceptable behavior and that these evil/criminal processes WON’T be tolerated.

Only YOU can Stop and Fix This.

Thank you respectfully,

Heinz Puschendorf

Sheriff Write In Candidate Heinz Puschendorf tells the Alamanac “Ordered not to talk about Vegas or mention it.”

By Michael G. Stogner

The Almanac May 9, 2018 article by Dave Boyce, “Challengers square off against an appointed incumbent for Sheriff.”

Reporter Dave Boyce did not think this statement was worth a follow up question. Why?

Update: I spoke with Heinz by phone and he informed me that Dave Boyce did know it was Carlos Bolanos who ordered him not to talk. Dave Boyce left that out of the article. Why?

April 21, 2007 is when San Mateo County’s top two Sheriff & Undersheriff known as 1&2 were caught and detained (how long remains to be answered) as CUSTOMERS in a single family house that had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Child in it.

April 21, 2007 Heinz Puschendorf was the President of the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies Association, DSA. He was the Go to Guy. He started receiving phone calls from Las Vegas around 10:15 PM that night. This is the only SMCSO Deputy who was not in Las Vegas that night that would know what happened that night.

You would think that Dave Boyce would see the opportunity to finally break the truth free here. He could have asked Heinz, Who Ordered You to not talk about Vegas or mention it? I might be able to help the Almanac out here. Heinz Puschendorf told me,

“Carlos Bolanos ordered Heinz Puschendorf the President of the DSA not to talk about Vegas or mention it.” “Directed down the chain of command the same order.”

Palo Alto Daily Post Endorses Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

I ask why? “We wish there were two better candidates in this race.” They don’t mention the 3rd candidate for Sheriff, Heinz Puschendorf is a Write In candidate that the Daily Post is aware of. Why?

“This won’t be an easy choice for informed voters.” That is an understatement. How would any San Mateo County Voter expect to be informed? Hint, it would look, feel and act like a Newspaper.

“A key issue for Melville is Operation Dollhouse, the 2007 FBI raid of a Las Vegas house of prostitution.” This was not a house of prostitution, this was a Human Trafficking Sex Slave residential house that included a minor. Dave Price leaves that out. Why?

“An FBI report indicates Munks went into the home while Bolanos stayed outside.” Dave Price has refused to identify or produce the FBI report. Why?

“He’s reached out to the Latin community,” It’s Latino, and what does that even mean? no communication/interviews by the Post, of anybody who is Latino.

The Palo Alto Daly Post has censored and deleted comments on this Endorsement.

Editorial: Carlos Bolanos best choice for San Mateo County Sheriff

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos

EDITORIAL

In the June primary, San Mateo County voters will see two candidates on the ballot for sheriff, the first time that’s happened since 1993, when Don Horsley was first elected to that post. We wish there were two better candidates in this race. This won’t be an easy choice for informed voters.

The candidates are Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, a former Redwood City police chief and county undersheriff. He was appointed sheriff in 2016, when Greg Munks retired. He is facing one of his own deputies, Mark Melville, who is currently assigned to patrol an area on the coast.

A key issue for Melville is Operation Dollhouse, the 2007 FBI raid of a Las Vegas house of prostitution during which Munks and Bolanos, then the undersheriff, were detained. Prostitution is legal in many places in Nevada, but not in Clark County, where the raid took place.

Munks and Bolanos weren’t charged. An FBI report indicates Munks went into the home while Bolanos stayed outside.

When they got back to San Mateo County, Munks issued a brief statement saying he thought they were visiting a “legitimate business.” After that, Munks dodged questions about the raid.

We recall a June 18, 2009, interview Munks gave to a Post reporter about the campaign for a new jail. At the end, the reporter asked about the Las Vegas incident. Munks abruptly halted the interview and ushered the reporter out of his office.

By staying silent about the incident over the years, Munks kept a cloud of suspicion hanging over himself and Bolanos.

Different attitude

When we interviewed Bolanos the other day, his attitude was very different. He was willing to talk about the incident without flinching. But he was adamant that he did nothing wrong that night in Vegas.

“I refuse to apologize for something I didn’t do,” Bolanos said.

And nobody has been able to prove that Bolanos did anything more than stand outside that brothel while Munks went inside.

The suggestion that Munks and Bolanos were lax on prostitution isn’t supported by the record.

The North Fair Oaks neighborhood in unincorporated San Mateo County, where the sheriff serves as the local police department, was previously littered with massage parlors that, according to online rating sites, were actually houses of prostitution.

In 2015, the sheriff’s office — headed by Munks with Bolanos as undersheriff — worked with code enforcers and the county counsel to shut down nine parlors. It was a considerable achievement that hasn’t been brought up in this campaign by either side.

While Bolanos doesn’t deserve a free pass for his involvement in the Vegas incident, nobody has been able to make the case that his department is enforcing the law any differently because of it.

Generally, we’ve liked what we’ve seen during Bolanos’ time as sheriff. The department has been more transparent, there have been very few instances of unprofessional conduct by deputies, and Bolanos has demonstrated that he’s fiscally conservative when spending the public’s money.

He’s reached out to the Latin community, which can be a difficult area for law enforcement agencies given the apprehension over immigration policy. His cooperation with ICE is dictated by state law, and Bolanos has been following that law. He has said repeatedly that his officers will not be asking about the immigration status of those they contact, and he doesn’t feel county deputies should enforce federal immigration law.

Experience matters

We question whether his opponent, Melville, would be capable of running a large sheriff’s department with 800 employees. It was disappointing that none of the county’s police chiefs or sheriff’s captains entered this race. Anybody who succeeds in one of those jobs would automatically be considered a strong candidate for sheriff.

Melville, currently a patrol deputy, does have executive experience, though not on the scale of running a major sheriff’s office like the one in San Mateo County. He was a city councilman in the small Central Valley town of Gustine (population 5,520) from 2002 to 2006. The Merced Sun-Star said he was fined $400 by the state Fair Political Practices Commission for not reporting on his financial disclosure forms that he owned a consulting business that worked on city projects.

He was city manager and public safety director in Livingston (population 13,058) from 1999 to 2002 and held a similar position in Gustine from 1988 to 1999, working as its city manager and police chief.

No perfect choice

We give Melville credit for jumping into the race and offering voters a choice. While neither is the perfect candidate, Bolanos wins our recommenddation because he has the strongest record and the most experience.
