Rishi Kumar for Congress

By Michael G. Stogner

This is just one reason San Mateo County News.com is Endorsing Rishi Kumar for Congress.

“Rishi Kumar is the real deal, It’s that simple. Just ask yourself of all of the San Mateo County Elected Officials and Candidates for Offices in this next election, how many are willing to take simple stances for justice? How many are running for ethics-in-politics? Rishi Kumar will fight for the people and will never sell out. You can trust Rishi to get things done!”

Sock Pow Zock! Holy Batmobile and Misuse of Power Caper!

San Mateo County Sheriff spends taxpayer money, dispatching deputies to browbeat a Batmobile manufacturer in Indiana

🇺🇸 Rishi Kumar 🇺🇸

KEY POINTS: 

  • San Mateo County Sheriff dispatched a squad of deputies to Indiana over a local business dispute. This wasted taxpayer dollars and caused a social media furor
  • Rishi has always called out these transgressions, whether in the recent case of the Valley Water Board or Anna Eshoo’s misleading claims regarding her legislative record 
  • Rishi’s run is about ethics in politics, and he will always take action to back up his words
  • This draws a stark contrast between Anna Eshoo and Rishi Kumar (there are no Republicans on the November ballot), a difference that will help you cast your vote this November!

Truth can be stranger than fiction, and the tale of the San Mateo County Sheriff dispatching a squad of local deputies over 2000 miles away to browbeat a builder of replica Batmobiles in Indiana (allegedly on behalf of a friend in Atherton) seemed like something out of a cartoon. Or was it just San Mateo County politics as usual?

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos had just lost to challenger Captain Christina Corpus in the June primary election, but as a lame duck, Sheriff Bolanos committed an serious violation of ethical principles. Allegedly doing a favor for a friend, Sheriff Bolanos misspent taxpayer dollars to crowbar a minor business dispute into criminal court. It is time for Sheriff Bolanos to resign and help the county put this embarrassment behind it.

Rishi Kumar has made it a top priority to scrub our government clean of corruption no matter the party affiliation or allies of those in question. The Bolanos Batmobile scandal exceeds the limits  of what we as a community can permit. This is an outrageous example of petty corruption in our district. Rishi has proved his willingness to stand against unsavory practices and corrupt politicians, opposing Santa Clara Valley Water District Measure A and calling for the resignation of four board members after they disingenuously  extended their eligibility to four consecutive terms, while spending $3.2 million of taxpayer dollars.

Rishi’s anti-corruption stance contrasts sharply with incumbent Anna Eshoo’s history of selling out to Big Pharma. She is the U.S. Congress’s largest recipient of money from the pharmaceutical industry, and she has failed to take action on healthcare reform that might cut into Big Pharma’s profits. Eshoo shamelessly claims the achievements of others in order to gain political power, pointing to 45 bills she supposedly “passed” during her time in office. Only four of these (all trivial) were actually sponsored by her.

Rishi will always reject money from Special Interest groups in his campaign. He will only accept money from people like you, and this pledge will never be broken. On the city council, he has always rejected land-developer money.

As a Representative, Rishi will be in a position to bring real change. He is a beacon of hope, fighting against the corrupt practices of selfish politicians. For your interests, not special interests – and never turning a blind eye to corruption. 

Sincerely,

Rishi Kumar, U.S. House of Representative, district 16 candidate.

San Mateo County News.com Endorses Rishi Kumar for Congress.

Rishi Kumar

As a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years, this is such a simple call for me. I attended the August 2, 2004 Hearing before the Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations of the Committee on Government Reform House of Representatives One Hundred Eighth Congress Second Session.

Most San Mateo County Residents would know this as the 200 lbs of Explosives Stolen from San Mateo County.

It was held at the San Mateo City Hall Chambers, The Hon. Christopher Shays, Tom Lantos and Anna Eshoo

Mr. Walfred A. Nelson of the ATF testified under oath of the 30-35 lbs of plastic explosives (C-4) were stolen.

San Mateo County Sheriff Don Horsley heard Mr. Nelson testify just minutes before he testified under oath that all 10 lbs of C-4 was recovered.

Anna Eshoo was OK with those two conflicting statements that day.

I have always known from that day that I could not have confidence in Congresswoman Anna Eshoo.

Just in case you need another example San Mateo County’s Big Lie of April 21, 2007. Anna Eshoo did nothing about The Sheriff and UnderSheriff lying to the residents.

I recommend Rishi Kumar for Congress 2022

It’s been reported S.J. Mayor Sam Liccardo is eyeing run for Congress. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

San Jose Spotlight Article March 14, 2022

At a California Chamber of Commerce executive board meeting in Half Moon Bay last week, Liccardo let it slip that he’s eyeing a run for Congress and private consulting.

I’ve got to admit, I have No Idea what eyeing a run for Congress and Private Consulting really means.

I googled the California Chamber of Commerce & Meeting in Half Moon Bay for any meeting information for the week of March 8, 2022 and found ZERO RESULTS.

Anyway If the San Jose Mayor is running for Congress we will know by tomorrow at 5:00 PM.

I do know that RISHI KUMAR, PETER OHTAKI, JOHN KARL FREDRICH, RICHARD B FOX, GREG LIN TANAKA, AJWANG RADING, and of course ANNA G. ESHOO is running for Re-Election.

You would think SEVEN Candidates is enough, and no need for another politician who is already busy enough.
