Wonderful photo by SMDJ of Aldon Smith, Definitely NOT a Booking Photo.

This is another exciting “Those Who Matter” case that the “Fixer” Joshua Bentley is quietly moving through the San Mateo County Court system.

You will recall Aldon Smith was arrested on December 6, 2021 by the California Highway Patrol at Farm Hill Blvd and 280 where he crashed into a Recology Truck injuring the driver. This is not the first time he has been arrested for DUI, It’s been reported he has been arrested 5 times for DUI.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has never released his Booking Photo or produced a Press Release of the December 6, 2021 arrest. Why?

Attorney Joshua Bentley is doing an Excellent job in trying to keep those four prior DUI’s out of this case.

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.

Feds launch Investigation into SMC PPE.

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.

Here is his January 27, 2022 Update

SMC $10M + PPE Investigator is Dr. Jim Lianides

By Michael G. Stogner

Whenever Government gets caught it’s not uncommon to immediately launch an Investigation to assure the Taxpayers, that this was a Mistake, We don’t know how it happened, and we will Investigate Ourselves and produce a report in the future to make sure nobody is held responsible.

A suggestion for Dr. Jim Lianides, is to ask San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy,

“Did you order the PPE moved outside the building at San Mateo County Event Center?”

Question for Dana Stoehr “Who ordered the PPE moved outside the building?”

These two questions should take about 4 minutes to ask and get responses.

That is really the question San Mateo County Residents want answered.

I received the e-mail below yesterday at 10:39 AM from Mike Callagy

Good morning Mr. Stogner,

On January 20, 2022, the County hired Dr. Jim Lianides to conduct the investigation. The County was searching for a neutral and experienced person who has run a government organization at the highest level and who understands government finance, purchasing, internal controls, employment and systems. Mr. Lianides has over 40 years of public sector experience, most recently as the (ret.) Superintendent of the Sequoia Union High School District. 

The scope of the investigation is to review the County’s existing practices and what transpired with respect to the handling, tracking and safeguarding of the equipment; to research best practices for government agency handling, tracking and safeguarding of similar equipment, particularly in a contingency setting; and to make recommendations for handling, tracking and safeguarding of such equipment in the future.

Best regards,

Mike

You’ll see from the description above the SCOPE of this work does not include Who Ordered it OUTSIDE. Also NO MENTION of the CONVOY of Recology Garbage Trucks and PPE in the last 2 months. Source Dan Noyes ABC 7

James Brown was given $10M of Great Condition PPE. The question remains by WHO? and Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

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.”

Good Luck San Mateo County

Aldon Smith Refused a field sobriety test.

By Michael G. Stogner

Wonderful photo by SMDJ of Aldon Smith, Definitely NOT a Booking Photo.

Aldon Smith was arrested by the California Highway Patrol on December 6, 2021 on Farm Hill Blvd, Redwood City, San Mateo County, California. He crashed his vehicle into a Recology Truck injuring the driver.

Silicon Valley.com Reporter Michael Nowels reported his BAC was .288

What is Not known is what time did he finally take the test?

According to the Chart below Aldon Smith should lose his California Drivers License for 3 years and he should be in Jail for an additional 18 days. Hopefully the Silicon Valley .com News provider will follow up on this topic.

If you refuse to submit to a DUI breath test after being lawfully arrested for driving under the influence in California, you will face penalties for a chemical test refusal.

The major consequences of a chemical test refusal in California are: 1) increased penalties in addition to the standard California DUI penalties, and 2) a mandatory driver’s license suspension that will occur regardless of the outcome in your DUI case.

This is because of California’s “implied consent” law. Under this law, you have no right to refuse a DUI breath test once you are lawfully arrested for DUI.

Traditionally, California’s “implied consent law” applied to DUI blood tests as well as to breath tests. But the Supreme Court of the United States has suggested that defendants may not be penalized for refusing to take blood tests in cases where the police have not obtained a warrant.

The following chart clarifies the additional penalties that will accompany a DUI conviction if you refuse to take a DUI breath test.

Number of Prior DUIs in the Past 10 YearsAdditional Jail Time for Refusing a Breath TestLicense Suspension/Revocation for Chemical Test Refusal
048 extra hours in jail; six extra months of required DUI school1-year license suspension
196 extra hours in jail2-year license revocation
210 extra days in jail3-year license revocation
3 or more18 extra days in jail3-year license revocation
Number of Prior DUIs in the Past 10 YearsPenalties for Refusing a Breath Test
048 extra hours in jail; six extra months of required DUI school; 1-year driver’s license suspension
196 extra hours in jail; 2-year driver’s license revocation
210 extra days in jail; 3-year driver’s license revocation
3 or more18 extra days in jail; 3-year driver’s license revocation
