As a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 21 years, I have always recommended releasing the recording evidence unedited to the public within 24 hours.
On May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Homicide by Law Enforcement in Half Moon Bay was no different. I recommended the release of the UNEDITED Body Worn Camera Video to the public within 24 hours. Not one of the FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors did the same.
Supervisor David Canepa is now Fundraising and is a Candidate for Congress.
Here we are 22 months after the Homicide and San Mateo County Counsel files this: Answering Paragraph 3, Defendants admit that Defendant Deputy Dominguez failed to turn on his body worn camera immediately prior to the incident at issue.
Supervisor David Canepa, What is the EVIDENCE to support that statement? You should know what the evidence is that has your Attorneys making that statement. You have attended several Closed door sessions being briefed on this lawsuit.
Affirmative Defenses Defendants have not yet completed discovery, propounded interrogatories, submitted requests for documents, or taken depositions. WHY? It’s simple release the AXON Log Records. They will confirm or prove false the statement just made by County Counsel.
San Mateo County and SMCSO were aware that Dominguez resigned from the San Mateo Police Department due to unsatisfactory performance in the field training program.

I ask the question again, How much Taxpayer money has been invested in the defense of SMC, City of Half Moon Bay and Deputy David Dominguez?
Once you answer that question, the next question is Why did you approve that?
John Beiers is an At-Will employee: Respectfully submitted, JOHN C. BEIERS, COUNTY COUNSEL

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.

I am currently away from the office.
If you require time-sensitive assistance in my absence, please email HS_MHOAC@smcgov.org and the EMS Agency Duty Officer on call will respond to your request.
For emergent needs, please contact County Public Safety Communications at 650-363-4905 and request to speak with the EMS Agency Duty Officer on call.
Why wasn’t San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy placed on Administrative Leave January 13, 2022?
January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes was reporting on MORE than $10M of PPE outside and unprotected from the elements and theft. He reported a Convoy of Garbage Trucks removing PPE within the last 2 months from the site. Here are some questions he asked Mike Callagy on January 13, 2022.
Mike Callagy is San Mateo County Manager.
DAN NOYES: “Can you give me an idea of the amount of money we’re talking?”
MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. There’s a lot of PPE out there.”
DAN NOYES: “Is it safe to say over a million?”
MIKE CALLAGY: “I would say, oh yeah, I would say over, over a million.”
DAN NOYES: “Is it multiple millions or-“
MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. But it’s, it’s, it’s, there’s a lot of PPE out there.”
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.
The City Manager is responsible for the Police Departments behavior. She is also responsible for the Agenda Items on council meetings and when Public Comment takes place during the meetings etc. Most cities in San Mateo County have the Public Comment at the beginning of the meeting and the time allowed to speak is in some cities is 3 minutes. There is a Zoom link for the meeting and that is published on the City Website for everyone interested to use. At the time of the meeting the Concerned Citizens simply go to that Zoom link and they are in the meeting.
Shawnna Maltbie likes to have a little more control on the Concerned Citizens speaking their minds. She makes them register in advance for a Public Meeting including giving your home address? That’s got to give most people that welcoming feeling, that Government really wants to listen to you. Also she likes the Public Comment to be at the END of the council meetings, that really helps in having fewer comments to have to listen to. Council meetings last for hours. April 26, 2021 for example had over 130 Concerned Citizens who pre registered to speak about Roger Allen’s Homicide.
Government (I mean Shawnna) does not like the public to criticize how things are going or to ask the obvious questions. Like why 4 Daly City Police Officers were at a disabled truck with a flat tire in the first place.
“Hello we are the Daly City Police Department we are here to assist you.”
When did DCPD start competing with AAA?
Shawnna Maltbie has refused to inform the public, Who was the first Officer on the scene?
Who was the Officer that allegedly reached into a vehicle and wrestle with Roger Allen R.I.P.?
How many shots do you say were fired?
Who did you communicate with to determine your actions to withhold all of the Transparency in this Homicide?
Was it your husband Jeff Maltbie City Manager of San Carlos? Was it your Father in Law John Maltbie former San Mateo County Manager? Your sister in law Jayme Ackemann (Maltbie)?
Daly City Government is a perfect example of the Maltbie Family 101 How to run SMC Government.
It has been 34 days since Roger Allen R.I.P. was shot and killed in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in the afternoon in Daly City.
That is all San Mateo County Residents know to this day, we do know the names of the four Officers involved, Big deal.
Update: The 1:30 PM turned out to be 4:10 PM Lasted about 45 seconds Continued.
Next Court Date is June 9, 2021 at 1:30PM
Today at 1:30 PM Courtroom 2A Phone number 1-206-279-9589 code 599028
Barbara Bonilla was the Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League. She was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. She was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for Sheriff 2018. She was President of California PAL, and high ranking member of National PAL association.
She was investigated for Embezzlement and Money Laundering.
She is being Prosecuted by the Attorney Generals Office, who has said very little publicly about the case.
Roger Allen was shot and killed in Daly City on April 7, 2021, Four Unidentified Daly City Police Officers were involved.
Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley has chosen to Not Identify his 4 Police Officers. Why?
Daly City Manager Shawanna Maltbie supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Assistant Manager Stephen Stolte, supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Day City Mayor Juslyn Manalo supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Vice Mayor Glenn R. Sylvester supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Raymond A. Buenaventura supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Pamela DiGiovanni supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Rod Daus-Magbual supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
It’s been 16 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen, America is demanding change in Policing, Colin Kaepernick risked his career to stop Police Officers from killing Black and Brown people and abusing their authority. Yesterday Columbus Ohio Police released Body Worn Camera Video and the Identity of the Involved Officer within HOURS of a shooting death of a 16 year old Black girl.
Why are Daly City’s entire Elected and hired Staff on a different page then the rest of America? They can’t be racists can they? No of course not they signed and supported the Black Lives Resolution less then a year ago. If they are not racists what could it possibly be?
Could it be as simple as “Those Who Matter.”
I spoke to the Supervisors of San Mateo County April 20, 2021 asking them to make a Public Statement calling for the release of the names of the 4 Involved Daly City Police Officers. Supervisors David Canepa and Warren Slocum sponsored the County’s Black Lives Matter Resolution below. You will notice the Supervisors don’t mention Chinedu V. Okobi who I say is San Mateo County’s George Floyd Homicide by six Sheriff Employees. Why?
I would have expected the “Showboater” Supervisor David Canepa to have made a PUBLIC Statement on this obvious topic 16 days ago, he has remained silent.
· At a Special Meeting this Wed., July 22, 5pm, the Daly City Council will consider potential adoption of a Resolution in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to reaffirm the City’s commitment to racial equity. Register to join the zoom meeting at http://bit.ly/specialmeetingjuly22…
Black Lives Matter Resolution
Posted by kchaiken on Jun 24th 2020
There are moments in history that we look back on as breaking points for social change. I believe that, at this moment, we are facing one of these breaking points. Our nation is in collective anguish at the murder of George Floyd and the countless other Black persons who have been the victims of police violence.
San Mateo County is not exempt from this anguish nor are we exempt from responsibility, but we have the power right now to make a change. We have heard from our community and from protestors across the nation that enough is enough. We need to take concrete steps to address this injustice. That is why I proposed and voted in favor of the San Mateo County Black Lives Matter Resolution.
Although this resolution does not yet outline any specifics, it is a commitment that will serve as the foundation for a whole new set of anti-racist policies and a re-evaluation of our current policies to root out injustice, biases, and systemic racism. These policies will not just serve to benefit members of our Black community, but all people of color, and by extension our entire County.
This resolution is also a key component of our overall work to promote equity in San Mateo County. I want to make it abundantly clear that the County of San Mateo cares deeply about creating an equitable and just community for all.But, it is not possible to have equity for all, until Black Lives Matter.
Hay momentos en la historia que consideramos puntos de quiebre para el cambio social. Creo que, en este momento, nos enfrentamos a uno de estos puntos de quiebre. Nuestra nación está en angustia colectiva por el asesinato de George Floyd y las innumerables personas Afroamericanas que han sido víctimas de la violencia policial.
El Condado de San Mateo no está exento de esta angustia ni estamos exentos de la responsabilidad, pero tenemos el poder en este momento para hacer un cambio. Hemos escuchado de nuestra comunidad y de manifestantes en todo el país que ya es suficiente. Necesitamos tomar medidas concretas para abordar esta injusticia. Es por eso por lo que propuse y voté a favor de la Resolución de Asuntos de Vidas Negras del Condado de San Mateo.
Aunque esta resolución aún no describe un plan detallado, es un compromiso que servirá como base para un conjunto completamente nuevo de políticas antirracistas y una reevaluación de nuestras políticas actuales para erradicar la injusticia, los prejuicios y el racismo sistémico. Estas políticas no solo servirán para beneficiar a los miembros de nuestra comunidad Afroamericana, sino a todas las personas de color y, por extensión, a todo nuestro condado.
Esta resolución también es un componente clave de nuestro trabajo general para promover la equidad en el Condado de San Mateo. Quiero dejar en claro que el Condado de San Mateo se preocupa profundamente por crear una comunidad equitativa y justa para todos. Pero, no es posible tener equidad para todos, hasta que “Black Lives Matter”.

“Let’s talk about Racism – When Neighbors Racially Profile Neighbors”, this Thursday night at 7:00pm.
Our panelists, Menlo Park Mayor Cecilia Taylor, East Palo Alto City Councilmember Larry Moody, San Mateo County Assistant District Attorney James Wade, and Menlo Park resident Michelle Smedley, will share powerful personal experiences and their inspiring resilient responses. We also will discuss community and public policy action. I hope you can join us.
For some background on this event:
On June 30th, my neighbor Michelle Smedley shared the following on Nextdoor.
“My son is now 15. He is transitioning from a cute kid body, into that of man. I conceded in December and gave in that he is officially taller than me, a milestone he has been trying to achieve for quite some time. This, and the fact that he is biracial and not white, now seems to make him a threat. And his friend base, those great and wonderful kids who just happen to come from a diverse range of cultures, even more so.
Since February, the police have been called on my son and friends twice, sadly once while at the the duck pond just down the street from our home. He and his friend encountered expletives from a middle aged male who told them that “they did not belong” in the park and proceeded to call the police on them. I am very happy to say, the MP Police dealt with it very professionally. Dog walking on the trails off of Valparaiso, they have encountered people videoing them and threatening to call the police because “they didn’t belong” up there. He had a run in with a teen at the grocery store in RWC who actually called him the N word. The mother of the teen called the police on my son and friends when my son told him that wasn’t really an appropriate word to use. Happy to say the RWC Police acted very professionally too. Last evening, a car decided to record them as he was driving down the Santa Cruz Ave quite to detriment of the cars behind him.”
Michelle’s Nextdoor post called on neighbors to please stop racially profiling her son.
It seems to me it’s past time for a larger community discussion on this topic.
The City of Menlo Park has Declared a Local State of Emergency in response to the rapid spread of COVID-19 in San Mateo County.
There is no vaccine for the COVID-19 Virus. The only method to slow it down from overwhelming the Healthcare System and Healthcare workers is Aggressive Social Distancing Immediately.
Posted on: March 11, 2020
Menlo Park declares local emergency; closes public facilities, programs over COVID-19
On March 10, 2020, the San Mateo County Health Officer issued an updated statement that acknowledged “evidence of widespread community transmission of COVID-19 in San Mateo County.” On March 11, City Manager Starla Jerome-Robinson, under Menlo Park Municipal Code Chapter 2.44, signed a Proclamation of Local Emergency within the city of Menlo Park to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
During its special meeting this evening, the City Council unanimously voted to ratify the proclamation of local emergency in Menlo Park, authorizing the City Manager to adopt emergency orders or regulations to ensure the health and well-being of the public and to mitigate the effects of the local emergency. The City Council further directed staff to take immediate action to temporarily close public facilities and suspend programs.
Effective immediately, city facilities will be closed to the public, with the exception of senior services and childcare centers, which will close at the end of business, Friday, March 13. This is to allow patrons, participants and parents to make alternate arrangements over the weekend.
“The health and safety of our employees, residents and businesses remains the highest priority. We encourage those who are sick or who are at higher risk for serious illness to stay at home,” said City Manager Starla Jerome-Robinson. “This proclamation provides us the flexibility to position resources and to best address this public health crisis.”
“This is a global outbreak that requires us to prepare for significant disruptions to our daily lives. We must take action now. The health and safety of the Menlo Park community is our highest priority. Our neighbors, friends and family can work together through neighborhood associations, CERT and emergency preparedness classes. When we are informed, we are stronger together and more resilient. Preparedness and prevention is our best defense,” said Mayor Cecilia Taylor.
This local emergency shall continue until it is terminated by proclamation of the City Council. Pursuant to Section 8630 of the Government Code, the City Council shall proclaim the termination of a local emergency at the earliest possible date that conditions warrant. The need for continuing this local emergency shall be reviewed within 60 days by the City Council.
