Making San Mateo County Safer and Eliminating Corruption has been a project of mine for over 20 years now. I support the Public and Community in the Recall of the Daly City Elected Officials. It is exactly what Jeff Regan recommended shortly after Roger Allen R.I.P. was killed by the Daly City Police Officers who claimed all 4 of them were surrounding the disabled truck with a Flat Tire because “They were there to Help.”
Bay Area Transparency Video made 1 year ago tomorrow, Roger Allen R.I.P. was killed April 7, 2021, 96 days after this video was made. Now I got to see the “We are here to help.” in action. Roger Allen R.I.P. also saw it.
A while ago, We personally reached out to Talika, Roger Allen’s Sister, to express our sorrow and outrage for his murder. And also to offer love and support for Her, Her Family and the Community. We remain steadfast on the resignations of ALL Daly City Council Members and the disposal of the City Manager and Assistant City Manager. They are truly trash! We have been active in sending very pointed and directed email messages and verbal comments to all Council Members as well as the City Manager demanding their departures. We have called dc officials out as racists, murderous cowards. We have verbally vanquished them to Hell. Dropping a few f bombs on them on the way. We verbally broke the DCPD chief and captain in prior meetings as well as moderator leilani ramos and most recently demolishing council member buenaventura. We have reminded them, all Meetings are their LEGACY for their current and future generations to view them as the trash they are. This is pure demonic cowardice evil. We would like to connect with Community Leaders and Community Organizations in an effort to begin a RECALL effort in early 2022. We think it would be best to connect as a Whole Community. Strength in Numbers!! We would be more than happy to support all efforts to begin:“Recall the Racist, Murderous DC Council Members.” More than happy to put the banners together. Please let us know if ALL of us can come together on this. We can connect in early 2022 after the Holidays and as DC City Council Meeting has been moved to Jan 10th, 2022 another display of their cowardice. Finally, it really hit us hard as many of us, if not all, have our Family with us this Holiday Season and Talika and Ms. Wright do not have Roger with them
Please let us know your thoughts of change for a better, safer Daly City in 2022. Best Regards. The Public and Community
Most residents in San Mateo County don’t know that the behavior of the Police Department is the responsibility of the City Manager. The voters of Daly City can not recall the City Manager, The City Council can Fire/Terminate her if they wish too, they don’t. So the only option is to RECALL the Councilmembers.
You may remember the Residents of Foster City, San Mateo County, California recently Successfully RECALLED Herb Perez the vice mayor. You can just imagine how many Political Experts thought that was terrible Idea.
There are many families in San Mateo County who have lost loved ones to Homicide by Law Enforcement. Please keep them in your thoughts.
If you are interested in joining The Public and Community in this effort you can send me your contact information at email@example.com and I will pass it on.
This case was Very Fast from start to finish, How and Why?
Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.
As it turns out a San Mateo County Resident was arrested and Criminally Charged with three Felony Sexual Assault counts Bail was $500,000 and 47 days later his case is complete all the Sexual Assault charges are dismissed. This would be a good case for an AUDIT to simply find out what really happened. Was a man falsely charged in the first place? There is No Comment from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos about his Sheriff Investigators and their work on this case. What are their thoughts?
Sean Gallagher and Steve Wagstaffe offered Mr. Banister to reduce this case to 1 count a Misdemeanor, Why? and Why so fast?
San Mateo County Sheriff Office arrested Mr. Banister on August 31, 2021 after Investigating the Sexual Assault allegations. The Investigation started on August 2, 2021, A Judge issued a $500,000 Warrant for his arrest based on the SMCSO work product.
San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office filed the charges below on November 1, 2021, that’s 2 months after his arrest. So the District Attorney’s Office had two months to review the SMCSO Investigators work and they confirmed the three Felony sexual assault charges on an 11 year old victim.
On November 30, 2021 this offer was read in court, that is 29 days after the charges were approved and filed, What changed? What Happened?
I was not able to report what the District Attorney’s Offer was on November 30, 2021 because I was not sitting in the Courtroom. Also not in the Courtroom that morning was defendant Michael D. Banister and his defense attorney Joseph Goethals. They appeared by zoom or phone.
Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo Presiding Judge Leland Davis III cancelled the Public Access by Telephone on November 22, 2021. He has never explained Why? It can’t be because it’s safe to attend court in person now, So it must be some other really Important reason.
“The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.“
The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has a Victim’s Advocate. Did the Victim’s Advocate meet with the child and did he/she agree with this offer?
Did the parents of the victim agree with the offer?
San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa aka “Showboater” knows a great opportunity to Fund Raise when he sees one. Today he is holding his official Kickoff Campaign for Congress. He might as well, he has done nothing to make San Mateo County Safer or to Eliminate Corruption in San Mateo County that I am aware of.
Most recently in the (retired) San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez criminal case which has been going on for 7 years, Superior Court Judge Joseph Scott, Court Clerk Katrina Bihl, and Court Reporter Jocelyne Fakouri, Conspired to commit a crime, then did commit the crime of PC115A filing a False Instrument with the court which by itself is a Felony. All three made false statements under the penalty of Perjury. David Canepa thinks that is cool. I don’t.
A reasonable person would think the President of the Board of Supervisors would be Interested in making San Mateo County Safer for the ordinary resident, Nobody is Above the law, etc. Not David Canepa. Over the the last 7 years I have reported the Illegal conduct against Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, by multiple San Mateo County Employees, I can’t recall a single time that David Canepa showed any interest.
When Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. San Mateo County’s George Floyd, was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his Public Information Officer Immediately issued two False Press Releases both omitting the sixth very involved CSO Joseph Gonzales. David Canepa approved of that behavior.
I took the above video, I drove up from Monterey County to attend that meeting I had every intention of speaking on behalf of Chinedu V. Okobi and his family. I sat in the front row next to SMCSO Deputy Heintz Puschendorf the entire meeting, after listening to all of the speakers and watching Supervisor David Canepa refusing to pay any attention to all of the speakers, He wouldn’t even look at them, I chose not to speak.
San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus and SMCSO ret. Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan and Supervisor President David Canepa all thought it was a Great Idea for the Sheriff’s Office to Investigate Itself. A reasonable person would know that is NUTS.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier announced this week she will not run for re-election.
In 2008 she demanded the Board of Supervisors Investigate the April 21, 2007, FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse where Under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was Caught and Detained Inside a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada at 9:30 PM. To this day 14 years later nobody has asked Carlos G. Bolanos why he entered that disgusting smelling home.
It was either to have sex with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor or a more logical reason is it was a Drug Deal of 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000 Cash.
San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa has never wanted to know the answer and he has been fine with now Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lying about it for 14 years.
I think Supervisor President David Canepa should resign from the Board effective today so that he and his TEAM can devote FULL TIME and effort into something he is really passionate about, which is Fund Raising and promoting himself. I wish him the best.
Hindi, Awasthi, Sullivan, The Residents want Decency.
It wasn’t that long ago that a group of Foster City residents got together and said Enough is Enough. They organized, collected signatures, put a Recall measure on the ballot, and removed the Vice Mayor, from office, and they were SUCCESSFUL Why? Lack of Decency, that’s why. They wanted their Elected Officials to behave in a respectful and decent manner at all times, especially towards members of the public.
behavior that conforms to accepted standardsof morality or respectability.
The residents of Foster City have demonstrated before their demand for Honesty and Decency.
This story is at the very beginning it is about San Mateo County Politics and Those Who Matter vs. the Residents.
What was so important to remove the Recently Hired City Manager at this moment in time when the Assistant City Manager had just left Foster City 2 weeks ago, and has not been replaced. That equals a Leadership vacuum that was self inflicted by Hindi, Awasthi, and Sullivan. They have caused their City to be missing the two Full time employees who run the City.
Surely they must have a plan that they just haven’t shared yet, and the public looks forward to learning about it.
Imagine being on a 747 flight from SFO to Hawaii and you’ve just been informed that your Pilot and Co-Pilot are No Longer Flying the plane.
If you are a resident of San Mateo County and couldn’t care less about politics, but have been wondering what the Hell has happened to the Quality of Life in your residential neighborhoods and the over building and crowding of Office Buildings and don’t forget the GRIDLOCK, we used to call it traffic. It hasn’t been traffic for the last 15 years.
I recommend you listen to Lisa Taner, she is one of the Good Gals/Guys. Make this phone call it matters.
It’s time to blow the lid off the trash can of political cronyism and its most recent unseemly offspring, Senate Bill 9 and Senate Bill 10.
Most times in a household, everyone knows when the garbage can is full, but they wait for someone else to take it out — even when it stinks to high heaven. Let’s do this job together. Let’s delve through that refuse and see exactly who put it there and why it reeks.
Last year, San Mateans may recall, it wasn’t but a minute after Measure Y (the renewal of our city’s new building height limit measure) received certification of its win that San Francisco’s prolific housing bill author, state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, attended a San Mateo-based “anti-Y decompression” meeting. The attendees and guest speakers, our own councilmembers Goethals, Lee and Bonilla, were told that no one should worry about the failed effort to kill off the citizen measure, insinuating that state efforts would pave the way to their desired outcome. “We are making progress,” Wiener assured them. “We honestly need more action at the state level.” Enter Senate bills 9 and 10.
Senate bills 9 and 10 are a developer’s nirvana. With no affordable housing required, or any funds from developers to go toward supporting infrastructure, coupled with the complete removal of any due process, and elimination of local zoning, residents will wake up to find buildings going up right next door to their homes with no rhyme or reason other than developer profit. By then, it will be too late (Did I mention that SB 10 also gives San Mateo’s City Council the power to override the will of the voters and dismiss Measure Y?). Go to unitedneighbors.net for the simple facts regarding these two bills, including a two-minute video of all that we have to lose. These bills have already passed in the Senate and the Assembly will be voting on them mid-August. The time to tell Assemblyman Mullin to vote no is now. Call him at (650) 349-2200.
So, how did we get here? Two words: political cronyism. In large part, gone are the days where your representatives actually represent you. Most are busy setting their sights on their next position, with their stepping stones on the backs of us, their constituency. Take a look around our region — it’s pretty clear who is doing work for the people and who isn’t. Even idealists landing in council seats or higher can quickly expect to feel the firm hand of the special interest folks on their shoulders, complete with promises of what they could be, if only. And if they do the bidding of their pals in high and low places, they’ll receive all the endorsements and funding they need to win their next campaign — if the voters just stay ignorant. And it doesn’t stop there. Commission seats in cities all around our region are targeted, too, as special interests line up their friendlies to fill those all-important decision-making seats, one by one. It’s simply their chess game, a Queen’s Gambit move, where you, the resident pawn, is sacrificed to gain control of the board.
As ever, politics is about money and power, but it has morphed into a Godzilla-like creature so hideously ugly, that we want to throw our hands up in the air and move to Mars. I have a better idea. Let’s send those who support bad bills like Senate bills 9 and 10 there instead. NASA recently announced it needs people for a simulated Mars habitat for a year. Some of the skills they’ll be taught could translate into being better representatives when they “return” to Earth. Sounds like a win to me.
Seriously, there is a way to retain our power as residents and taxpayers. Political climbers will need your vote. Pay attention to what they have done or failed to do — as with SB 9 and 10. Don’t be swayed by endorsements. Be vocal about your wants. Ask candidates hard questions — now and when they run for the next best thing. Make their answers and actions known. Your well-cast vote is still your superpower. There’s nothing scarier than an educated voter.
