Where are the San Mateo County residents/voters expected to get truthful information about the candidates. Here is just one example. In the 2018 Election Candidate for Sheriff Mark Melville, told Jon Mays the his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Jon Mays never printed that little fact. Why?
Jon Mays took it a step further with his endorsement of Carlos Bolanos saying “We believe him” and a “later report” which does not exist.
The simple truth is Carlos G. Bolanos was inside the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada, April 21, 2007 at 9:30 PM with Sheriff Greg Munks. Sources: LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and LVMPD Vice Lt. Karen Hughes both said so.
The residents of San Mateo County will remember the News that San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were Caught and Detained INSIDE a single family home with bars on all of the windows and doors in an FBI Sting, called Operation Dollhouse. Who said they were INSIDE, LVMPD Spokesman Bill Cassell, and LVMPD Vice Lt. Karen Hughes both said they were INSIDE.
Three days later on April 25, 2007 San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks held a Misinformation Event where he admitted the obvious that he was INSIDE but then Lied about UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was outside when the authorities arrived. Why would he lie about that?
Sheriff Munks also said: Neither he nor Bolanos intended to PAY FOR SEX.
Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos have NEVER been Investigated or answered ANY questions about Why were they both INSIDE that Disgusting, Vulgar home on April 21, 2007.
Not one of the 5 San Mateo County Supervisors, thought it would be a good idea to find out why they both left the County at the same time for several days, and Why were they both Caught & Detained INSIDE? If they didn’t intend to PAY for SEX, were they there for another reason?
How long would it take for the San Mateo County Gang Task Force to get their hands on 3,5000 Ecstasy Tablets.
What would each Tablet be worth at retail or at a location where the customers would pay top dollar say $20 each = $70,000
Is it possible that Sheriff Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos both experts in Drug Trafficking and Human Trafficking were INSIDE 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada, at 9:30 PM to sell 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000 Cash?
It’s NEVER too late to Investigate, I’ve asked the Board of Supervisors to Investigate they Refused.
How many of the 7 Print Media aka Newspapers demanded an Investigation of Munk’s and Bolanos being INSIDE?
Every Candidate for Supervisor, Sheriff, and even the District Attorney’s Office should be in favor of a Full Investigation.
Nobody has ever asked, When did the 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets arrive at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada?
What caused the FBI to close a 2 year Sting Operation on a Saturday Night, when San Mateo County’s top two Law Enforcement Sheriffs were Caught?
Who is responsible for this mess? The Supervisors of San Mateo County of course. Also every City Manager and City Council who contracted with the Sheriff’s Office for Patrol Services.
It’s such a Simple Question, Why were you INSIDE? It should only be asked after they both are sworn in.
Simple Questions, Who else was involved? Did you recover the $232.084.51? Why did you think it was OK to Investigate this in the first place?
San Mateo County has three candidates for Sheriff in the next Election of 2022. I didn’t mention Mark D. Melville in the title because he fully understands the topic of Conflict of Interest.
I am confident the other two also understand the topic, the difference is they don’t care, they both chose to be involved in the Criminal Investigation of the San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement & Money Laundering case.
Here is what we do know from Captain Jeffrey C, Kearnan, “per Gigi, SAL has Never been Audited.” That is a Bad Thing, and “We can not account for $232,084.51.”
We also know that the Sheriff’s Office knew from May 11, 2020 that more people were involved than just Barbara Bonilla.
To Captain Christina Corpus and Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan Date: Mon, May 11, 2020 at 10:28 AM Subject: Re: Target Gift Cards Thanks Christina. Now this is more than just BB ordering her staff around. This is mismanagement of cash – and now it is not just BB.
San Mateo County Residents should say Thank You to John Charles Ullom for all of his work on this.
“SAL has Never been audited.” “We can not account for $232,084.51”
Jeffrey C. Kearnan e-mail “Per Gigi SAL has never been audited” We can not account for $232,084.51
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe recused himself and his entire office from the Embezzlement & Money Laundering criminal investigation involving just one individual. That was the right thing to do.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Captain Christina Corpus, chose to ignore the Obvious Conflict of Interest of the Sheriff’s Office investigating themselves. These two were not alone, there were many Sheriff employees involved in the Investigation of SAL.
A reasonable person would ask How is that possible? You will have to ask Carlos & Christina they are 2 of the 3 candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff in the next election just 9 months away.
Every person on SAL Board of Directors would know that the Sheriff’s Office should NOT Investigate itself.
The State of California Attorney Generals Office not only knew about the obvious conflict of interest, they warned the Sheriff’s Office about it, in an e-mail.
2) That the assigned Detective and Agent avoid regular meetings for the purpose of updating everyone in this email; as this would avoid possible conflict of interest concerns that could arise.
The Attorney General of the State of California Rob Bonta, through his prosecutor Emily Dahlke approved and offered a plea deal to the only person charged with any crimes in the entire Embezzlement and Money Laundering case involving the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. That case is now closed, and that case only involved $13,706.35 in restitution.
A reasonable person would ask, what about the others involved? Did they ever find the missing $232,084.51?
Mark Simon recently wrote an article on the Sheriff’s Race and I thank him for mentioning retired Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville as one of the 3 Candidates for the 2022 election. Mr. Melville has always said he will be running for Sheriff in 2022. In the 2018 election he received 52,997 votes. The SMDJ didn’t endorse him in 2018 which is fine but the false statement they made about Carlos G. Bolanos being OUTSIDE the entire time was simply a flat out lie. They also failed to mention that Mark Melville called Sheriff Bolanos his boss at the time a LIAR. Why would they not inform their readers of that fact.
Here are just 2 sentences from Mr. Simon’s article full of misleading information.
Some of this is due, undoubtedly, to an infamous 2007 episode in which both Bolanos and Munks were present at a Las Vegas massage parlor when it was raided by law enforcement. Bolanos’ only comment has been to insist that he did nothing wrong, and, indeed, he was never arrested or detained by police.
I’m not sure being caught and detained inside a single family residence with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor would be considered an infamous episode.
Mark and Jon promote the false and misleading title that Carlos G. Bolanos created “Massage Parlor.” LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell identified it as an Illegal Brothel. Approximately 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 in cash was seized at the brothel.
indeed, he was never arrested or detained by police, Lets take the word arrested first, LVPMP Spokesperson Bill Cassell clearly stated “No clients, customers, johns, whatever you want to call them, were arrested,” That covers Bolanos.
Now lets take the word detained, LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell clearly stated “Neither Munks nor Bolanos was arrested, but they were questioned and released along with paying customers.”
If you were not detained you would not be released.
San Mateo County has a competitive Election for Sheriff 2022 and always has had that the public is just now hearing about Mark Melville. The third Candidate is Christina Corpus.
There are so many more Important Topic’s for the Next Sheriff of San Mateo County the AXON LOG RECORDS and Body Worn Camera Videos being released to the public within 24 hours UNEDITED for starters. Ask the Candidates their position on that topic.
San Mateo County News.com asked San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his Public Information Officer what was his position on having all of his employees mandated to be vaccinated in order to work in San Mateo County.
The LATIMES reported today about San Francisco Sheriff Deputies response to the Vaccine Mandate.
San Francisco deputies threaten to quit over vaccine Union says about 160 of 600 employees would prefer to wear masks or test weekly. associated press The union representing San Francisco sheriff’s deputies said last week a number of its officers will quit or retire early if they are forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Under a mandate issued last month, city employees who work in the jails or other high-risk settings are required to be vaccinated by Sept. 15 or risk losing their jobs. The San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Assn. said on its Facebook page Friday that about 160 of 600 sheriff’s department employees are rejecting the vaccine due to religious or other beliefs, and would rather wear masks or test weekly. “If deputy sheriffs are forced to vaccinate a percentage of them will retire early or seek employment elsewhere,” the statement said. The union said that the staffing level at the sheriff’s office is already low, and that the loss of more deputies will affect public safety. It is asking the city to follow state guidelines, which offer employees the option of testing regularly. City officials denounced the union’s position, coming days after seven Bay Area counties reinstated indoor masking requirements to stem transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus. “There is also an undue and unacceptable health and safety risk that is imposed upon the city, our employees and the public we serve, by those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19,” the city’s Department of Human Resources said in a statement. “Vaccines are safe, effective and readily available to our employees.” About 16% of sheriff’s deputies, 17% of police and 9.5% of Fire Department employees were not vaccinated as of Friday, according to city data obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle. Meanwhile, the average unvaccinated rate across all city departments is 7.7%. Nancy Crowley, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s department, said officials are working with the human resources department to obtain full compliance by the deadline.
My e-mail to SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos went unanswered. That was 12 days ago.
Michael Stogner <firstname.lastname@example.org>To:Carlos Bolanos,email@example.comCc: Dave Canepa,Dave Pine,Don Horsley and 6 more…Wed, Jul 28 at 7:28 AM
Good morning Sheriff Bolanos, What is you current policy for Sheriff Employees getting vaccinated? How many of the 800 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees have been vaccinated to date? Do you plan to make it an Employment Policy Requirement as the State of California has just announced this week for Government Employees?
Thank You Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com
I am not sure how many of the other 7 advertising businesses aka Newspapers asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that same question but I do know none have written about that subject. I think the residents of San Mateo County have a right to know the answer to this type of question. This is a Public Health Issue.
San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.
Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.
Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.
Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.
I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.
I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.
One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.
If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.
Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.
Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.
Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.
Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.
There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.
This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.
On May 28, 2021, the City Council received a report from resident David Eblovi entitled The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay. At its June 1, 2021, Council meeting, Council directed staff to agendize an item for the June 15, 2021 meeting to receive a presentation on the report.
Two guest speakers have been invited by Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback to discuss the Report and add their voices to the general conversation about public safety in Half Moon Bay. Dr. Greg Woods will focus comments on ethics and accountability in policing, and Sergeant Carl Tennenbaum SFPD (Ret.), will focus comments on the benefits of civilian responders to low-risk calls. Their bios have been provided to the Council under separate cover and are on file with the City Clerk.
At the beginning of the item, staff recommends that the mayor present protocols and an agenda for how the item will go including approximate times for various sections. The item will conclude with Council deliberation and direction.
Thank You Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez for getting this Important Conversation on the Agenda. It should have been on in 2014 when Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo Cpinty Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his patrol vehicle. He had ZERO Plan, He Tampered with the Evidence. That is exactly what happened at the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020, NO PLAN and Tampering with the Evidence.
Two Council Members are finally doing what every Elected Official in SMC should have been doing for years.
Update: Next Court Dates are July 21, 2021 @ 1:30 PM and September 21, 2021 @ 9:00 AM
If you would like to listen you can call 1-206-279-9589 Code 599028 at 1:30 PM.
You may recall Barbara Bonilla was much more than just the Execute Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League when she was escorted out of her Office on February 10, 2020.
She was the Campaign Manager for Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. She also worked at Redwood City Police Department for Carlos G. Bolanos when he was the Police Chief there.
She was a:
San Mateo County Sheriff Employee
San Mateo County Parks & Recreation Committee, Commissioner
Redwood City Rotary Member
California PAL and National PAL Board Member.
How is the SMC Sheriff Activities League a 501 C?
What Has the SMC Sheriff Activities League done to make sure this NEVER happens again, since the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation by the State of California Attorney General and the San Mateo County Sheriff Office, which any reasonable person would know was an obvious Conflict of Interest.
Here is a short list of who knew about the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation.
Bill Nicolet, Assistant Sheriff Gregory Rothaus, Coastside Lutheran Church, Correctional Medical Group, Dani Gasparini & Alyn Beals, David Amann, Donald Hack, Greg Munks, Henry Gaw, Jeff Ira, Kiwoba Allaire, Lori & Eric Lochtefeld, Jim Hartnett & Rosanne Foust, Assistant Sheriff John Munsey, Maloney & Associates, Marshall Realty, Jonathan Shipman, Neil & Kate Layton,Pete Liebengood & Alicia Aguirre, Phillip Raiser, Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Steve Wagstaffe, Trisha Sanchez, Warren Slocum, Don Horsley. Adam Alberti.
San Mateo County News.com was the first News Media to write about Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave from Sheriff Activities League Headquarters in Redwood City.
How is that possible? With all those people who had knowledge about Barbara Bonilla, that Not One of the SEVEN Print Media in San Mateo County wrote an article about it in January or February?
The California State Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting Barbara Bonilla, What have you heard from them about this case? How did they come up with these charges? Is Barbara Bonilla really the only person involved?
Once again the City of Half Moon Bay Council Members are leading San Mateo County Elected Officials & Staff.
The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.
The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.
I asked Mark Melville Candidate for Sheriff 2022 for his opinion, here it is.
First and foremost, Mr. Jiminez is correct in that the public and Council need to meet and discuss what is in the best interest of all city residents, inclusive of public safety services. I read the proposed ordinance and find it appropriate. There is nothing in the ordinance that prevents the Sheriff’s Office from doing their job. The Council is looking for the betterment of how people are treated once they are in contact with law enforcement, nothing wrong with that. I’m not sure where the Sheriff is coming from when he says the ordinance wouldn’t improve public safety..? I think the ordinance is actually in favor of policing, in the way the City wants to see it done. In addition, I believe specific deputies should be assigned to the City for a long period of time. This would allow them to become part of the community and they would clearly understand the community’s expectations. In doing this, it would eliminate the Sheriff’s concern of having deputies working in different jurisdictions operating under different operating procedures.
The Sheriff’s statement, “It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract, it’s basically unenforceable,” which in my opinion is very condescending. The Sheriff is saying we are going to provide the service to the City the way we see fit, and there is nothing you can do about it, oh until the contract ends in 2022. In my opinion, the Sheriff should be at the forefront of drafting said ordinance with the city Council, because it’s for the betterment of the community..!! I’m wishing the City success in achieving the services they desire for their community.
Every City and Town that receives it’s Law Enforcement Services from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office should be on this ZOOM Meeting Tonight.
