San Mateo County Supervisors, What was it?

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

On January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes reported MORE than $10,000,000 of PPE was ordered moved outside the San Mateo County Event Center and there was some minor damage to the Cardboard Boxes. That same day He asked the County Manager Mike Callagy what the value of the PPE was? Mike Callagy responded “I don’t know.”

The next day Mike Callagy issued a Press Release that got published all over the internet that stated approximately $7.7M of SURPLUS PPE.

Mike Callagy went from “I don’t know” to a $3,000,000.00 difference in less than 24 hours.

That number has since been reduced in the media to $7,000,000.00

I thought it would be a Great Idea if the 5 Supervisors did their job and Verify the EXACT Dollar amount of PPE that was purchased with Taxpayer money. Not one of them liked that idea.

Here is a list of some questions I thought they might want to get the answers too. They had NO Interest.

Remove Item 12 from the Agenda January 25, 2022
What is the current Inventory of the PPE at SMCCC?
What was the actual cost of all the PPE stored at SMCCC?
Who ordered the PPE moved outside of the SMCCC? What date?
Who ordered the CONVOY of Garbage trucks to remove PPE from SMCCC? Date?
What is Wine Country Marines experience in distributing PPE items in this volume?
What has been Wine Country Marines largest distribution to date?
What other organizations were considered to distribute this PPE?
Why is there no mention of Distributing this PPE to San Mateo County Only?
Why wasn’t this PPE distributed when SMC first received it?
What made James Brown think the PPE was already donated to WCM?
Who in San Mateo County made him think that?

On January 25, 2022 at the Board of Supervisors Meeting there were only 2 Public Comments on Agenda Item 12. I will publish the Video of that meeting as soon as Mike Callagy allows it on the San Mateo County Website, as of 1/29/2022 @ 7:00 AM it’s not available.

San Mateo County 1/25/2022 BOS Meeting not on Website or Youtube Channel.

By Michael G. Stogner

Clerk to the County BOS Mike Callagy

I’ve been waiting to be able to review the January 25, 2022 meeting to specifically report on the Agenda 12 Item. I wanted to make sure I had the Supervisor David Canepa remarks correct before I report them to the public. The Governments Video is Not posted on SMC Website or the Youtube Channel as on noon today. The person who is responsible for that is the Clerk of the Board which just happens to be Mike Callagy.

San Mateo County News.com asked Mike Callagy for the name of the Investigator he hired. $10M PPE

By Michael G. Stogner

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Mike Callagy Wed, Jan 26 at 5:00 AM

Good Morning Mike,
What is the name of the Investigator you hired? 
What date did you hire him/her?

What is the scope of the Investigation?
Thank You
Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com

The reason I asked this question is that Former President of the Board of Supervisors and current Candidate for Congress David Canepa refused to ask it at the January 25, 2022 BOS meeting Agenda Item 12. Now to be fair to David Canepa Not one of the Supervisors asked that question.

As of this moment 29 hours later Mike Callagy has not responded.

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

“Wine Country Marines” James Brown mentions “Money Laundering”

By Michael G. Stogner

I see “$10M CASH” of “federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions” I don’t see a big mess, I don’t see “Surplus”

Money Laundering was the first thought that came to my mind, when I read and watched ABC 7 News report.

This is from ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes who first reported this Thursday January 13, 2022 at 6:12 P.M.

“We don’t want anybody to take this and put it on eBay because that’s in essence money laundering, you’re taking federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions and you’re turning it into cash for you,” Brown said, continuing, “We’re not going to allow that, but what we do want to do is get this into the hands of any organization that serves the community. If you’re out there serving the homeless or doing a food kitchen or a shelter, if you’re treating patients, any of that.”

Who in San Mateo County Government gave James Brown the $10,000,000 of PPE aka federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions?

This action happened before January 13, 2022 at 6:00 P.M. When Wine Country Marines Facebook page said

Large Donation of PPE
Updated: 2 days ago

The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated to the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

So James Brown (whoever he is) announced San Mateo County Graciously Donated to the (Wine Country Marines) whoever they are the $10,000,000.00 of PPE. 12 minutes before Dan Noyes reported the story.

Dan Noyes ABC 7 News was first to report this on January 13, 2022

A.G. Rob Bonta, Stop the San Mateo County Give Away, of $10,000,000 PPE.

Dan Noyes Investigative Reporter for ABC 7 reported on Thursday January 13, 2022 that $10M of PPE was moved outside of a secure location at the San Mateo County Convention Center. The reason given for the move was to use that space for a really cool convention held in September. They NEVER moved the PPE back inside it remained outside for more than 3 months. But here is what San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy did do right after Dan Noyes report went public, He gave away the $10M of PPE, to the Wine County Marines. WHY so FAST? and WHY them?

Think about that, most Residents of San Mateo County didn’t know anything about Dan Noyes’s report 3 days ago. James Brown sure did, Mike Callagy sure did.

What date and time did County Manager Mike Callagy give the $10M PPE away?

Stop the Give Away TODAY.

Was it worth it? Great place to store $10M of PPE.

By Michael G. Stogner

Photo by Dan Noyes

Two days ago Dan Noyes Investigative Reporter ABC News reported on $10M of PPE being damaged while stored outside the San Mateo County Event Center for more than 3 months unprotected from the elements and persons. Below is a photo of where the PPE was being stored before this really important meeting caused the PPE to be moved outside. I ask the question was it worth it? What was the cost to move the PPE outside. What was the Income to San Mateo County for renting the facilities for 5 days? What was the plan for bringing the PPE back inside a safe and secure structure. Why wasn’t this event held at a Hotel or even several Hotels?

Below Article on event that caused PPE to be moved outside.

Software conference to mark return of in-person events to San Mateo County

  in Business/CommunityStaff

Amid encouraging news about countywide reopenings, the San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced some of its own: the SaaStr User Conference will be coming to the San Mateo County Event Center Sept. 27-29, 2021. As the world’s largest non-vendor B2B software conference, SaaStr Annual will be the first major business meeting to be held in-person in San Mateo County since the advent of the pandemic.

According to officials at the San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau, the three-day conference will bring together more than 25,000 hybrid attendees who will attend both in person at the San Mateo County Event Center and online to expedite a safe gathering. Online attendees will be expected to follow a whole host of COVID-19 protocols that will be in place.

“COVID has had a profound and long-term impact on the meeting and events industry,” said John Hutar, president and CEO at the San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau. “As case rates continue to drop in our region and vaccinations increase, the SaaStr Annual conference…is proof that we are returning to more normal times.”

As the event organizer, SaaStr has been working closely with local county officials and the San Mateo County Event Center to ensure those attending in-person will feel safe and comfortable to do so. SaaStr is expecting all attendees, speakers and sponsoring companies to adhere to its health and safety protocols, which will include: vaccine requirements for all in-person attendees; temperature checks and secondary rapid COVID testing each day of the event; outdoor gathering (most of the SaaStr Annual event will take place on the Event Center’s external grounds); increased sanitization and hand washing; and physical distancing.

“SaaStr was founded on the basis of bringing the SaaS community together, and we’ve put together what we believe are industry-leading health and safety guidelines in order for us to do so together again in 2021,” said SaaStr CEO and Founder Jason Lemkin.

At the conference, Global SaaS founders, executives and venture capitalists will come together for an extensive array of content sessions and networking opportunities. More than 300 leading SaaS CEOs and other leaders will share their insights to help attendees scale-up and grow companies faster. SaaStr will also facilitate more than 1,000 one-on-one meetings between attendees, Q&As and mentoring sessions during the conference. Learn more about the conference here.

“The San Mateo County Event Center has a long standing tradition of hosting live tech-based events in the heart of Silicon Valley,” said Dana Stoehr, CEO of the San Mateo County Event Center. “After more than a year and a half without hosting large-scale in person events, we are excited to welcome the SaaStr Annual 2021 Conference to the event center in the safest and most responsible way possible.”

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the San Mateo County Event Center has served the community as an integral resource to combat the virus. To date, more than 25,000 COVID-19 tests have been administered at the Event Center and more than 90,000 vaccines have been given on-site.
