Is Defeated Sheriff Carlos Bolanos Contemplating Dancing the Disability Two-step?

By Michael G. Stogner

June 7th’s election signaled a sea change for San Mateo County’s Sheriff’s Office, with challenger Christina Corpus ousting Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. The wake of this defeat has undoubtedly left Carlos Bolanos and his department appointees with a number of pressing decisions, upmost of which is what do I do now?

Undoubtedly, the number one question for Bolanos is will he follow his predecessor and attempt to go out on a lifetime paid medical disability, one in which he will receive an untaxed paycheck with medical benefits for life? When Carlos said to the press, going forward, he needed to speak to his family about his future, is that what he meant?

And if Carlos puts in a workman’s compensation claim, alleging such a disability, one qualifying him for lifetime pay, will the County question it, given the fact that he hadn’t said he couldn’t perform the duties and responsibilities of Sheriff, before losing the election? The County and its governing body, the Board of Supervisors, apparently hadn’t, in the case of Carlos’ predecessor, Sheriff Greg Munks, rubber stamping his exit……. but then again Munks hadn’t lost an election?

Will the board afford Carlos the same golden parachute, realizing the irony of his losing the election, should he allege such a disability? If the Board does, what message would it send to those county employees who have had legitimate claims which the County had contested and or denied? Better yet, what message would that send to county residents, the Board’s employer?

And given Carlos is a Carpetbagger, a person who was not a homegrown County employee and had merely gone from one law enforcement agency to another, accruing & building retirement options, versus his homegrown challenger, Christina Corpus, should the County entertain such a claim and sign off on it?

If Carlos attempts such an exit, shouldn’t that necessarily disqualify him from seeking any further public office? Perhaps not, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has ardently supported Bolanos, ever since he (Bolanos) had been detained by the FBI & Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, in 2007, at a human trafficking site, one where indentured sex slaves, to include a minor and the illicit drug ecstasy were being sold. If such embracing of bad behavior by District Attorney Wagstaffe is any indication of things to come then I’d say the citizens of San Mateo county are going to be financially on the hook for Carlos’ exit.

Sheriff Activities League Director Steven Booker arrested by Belmont Police for DUI.

By Michael G. Stogner

Steven Booker photo from SAL Board of Directors

Steven Booker is also a Candidate for Supervisor of District Three

On May 28, 2022 at 2:00 AM the Belmont Police Department responded to a 911 call and ended up arresting Steven Booker, There was no mention of Mr. Booker refusing to take a breath test or blood test like SMC Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino did when he was arrested by RWCPD in 2019. Or Aldon Smith refusing both test when he was arrested (5th time) December 6, 2020 in Redwood City by the CHP. It looks like Steven Booker cooperated with the Police just like San Mateo County Superior Court Hon. Judge Joseph Scott did with the CHP when they arrested him for a DUI.

At this moment in time there are NO CHARGES filed by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. Steven Booker didn’t injure anybody.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Board of Directors

As you might have noticed today is June 6, 2022 one day before the Election in San Mateo County. This is the only article San Mateo County News.com has published on this topic. The Palo Alto Daily Post has published two Front Page articles about this IMPORTANT subject with photos of Mr. Booker a good sized Black Man with the title ARRESTED & DUI. I couldn’t help but notice how many of the San Mateo County Newspapers did the same.

I believe in a Level Playing Field, I personally know many people who have been arrested and even pled guilty to a DUI and have gone right back to work. Look no further than Judge Joseph Scott as a local example.

Lets compare an alleged DUI case with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos being Caught and Detained by the FBI Inside a small house where he was either there to have sex with one or more of the Sex Slaves including a Minor or there to sell 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000. Or Lets see how important the San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League which for some reason is a 501 C Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation was to the Voters of San Mateo County. They couldn’t care less.

I can’t imagine why a DUI would make one bit of difference to a San Mateo County Voter.

A photo of a Good Sized Blackman with Dreadlocks now that might make a difference.

San Mateo County Sheriff Race 2022

By Michael G. Stogner

This is not Rocket science, if you think Investigating your own agency in an Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Case is a BAD IDEA? I suggest you WRITE-IN Heinz Puschendorf for Sheriff 2022.

The other two thought it was a great idea to Investigate the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League in the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation. One of them was a lead investigator in that so called investigation.

Whoever donated money or endorsed the other two supports Investigating you own agency.

It’s just that SIMPLE.

Heinz Puschendorf for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022

By Michael G. Stogner

HEINZ PUSCHENDORF

I recommend the Residents of San Mateo County start practicing how to SPELL

HEINZ PUSCHENDORF.

I used to vote the first week I got my mail-in ballot, Get it over with quick, that all changed in 2018 when I was standing with Heinz Puschendorf in a church on Woodside Road and Alameda in Redwood City where Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and candidate Mark Melville were having what was called a Candidate Forum. The Church was full of Sheriff Deputies and upper management as I recall.

It was because of the questions being asked of the two candidates that HEINZ PUSCHENDORF stated “That does it, I’m in” He became a Write-In Candidate within a couple of days after that night.

Heinz Puschendorf was the President of the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Association DSA on April 21, 2007. The night Undersheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was caught and detained INSIDE the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada. The private home was also filled with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves and at least one Minor. There was also $25,000 CASH and 3,500 Ecstasy tablets.

To this day not one San Mateo County Elected Official or Candidate for any office has ever bothered to ask the simple Question of Carlos G. Bolanos. Why did you go inside 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada on the evening of April 21, 2007?

One huge difference between Heinz and the others is he knows the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office should have NEVER been involved in the Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Investigation. The other two thought it was just fine.

HEINZ PUSCHENDORF still has time to file as a Write-In Candidate for Sheriff 2022.

Supervisor David Canepa asks Questions the other Supervisors don’t want to know the answers too.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

Yesterday April 19, 2022 at the Board of Supervisor Meeting Agenda Item 12 was titled Surplus Safety Equipment, This item was put on the Agenda at the request of Supervisor Canepa at the last meeting.

None of the remaining Supervisors had any questions about the Deliberate well planned moving of $10M of PPE purchased with FEMA monies from the secured location at the San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021.

Through Supervisor Canepa’s skilled questioning technique he was able to get answers to these questions.

Possible liability of San Mateo County having to Refund the $10,000,000.00 to the Federal Government.

The monthly expense of $23,000 per month now for the storage of the PPE in 5 locations.

Mike Callagy is thinking of Building a Wharehouse to store the FEMA funded PPE.

The Dr. Jim Lianides/Mike Callagy/Staff and possibly other word crafters “Progress Report” which was supposed to be an “Independent Investigation.”

San Mateo County Executive Mike Callagy said at the 2:58:25 mark “I think there was things in the Report that were Inaccurate that need to be Cleaned Up.” “That those changes did take place.”

That means that That Mike Callagy and his TEAM word crated the Dr. Jim Lianides Report. All FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors were cool with that.

April 19, 2022 BOS Meeting

How many of the 760,000 SMC Residents knew about Agenda Item 12 yesterday?

Not mentioned was James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma.

San Mateo County PPE Scandal.

By Michael G. Stogner

Photo taken in November 2021

The Five Supervisors of San Mateo County don’t want the residents/voters to know the Truth about the More than $10M of PPE purchased with Federal Grants FEMA according to James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma.

On January 13, 2022 Mike Callagy County Manager and Supervisor David Canepa, Candidate for Congress, both high ranking San Mateo County Government Officials told ABC 7 News Investigative Reporter/Journalist Dan Noyes who broke the story that they didn’t know anything about the More than $10,000,000.00 of PPE that was moved out of the SMC Event Center. They both were QUICK to identify this as a MISTAKE, and they had NO Idea how this happened, “They were calling in the Marines” and an Independent Investigation was going to be ordered to make sure this never happened again. Notice the Investigation was not meant to identify How many San Mateo County Employees knew about this and for how long.

Here is one of Mike Callagy’s employees who knew in September: Iliana Rodriguez,

I offer these 2 e-mails as a start, this is getting close to answer the question, Who Ordered the More than $10M of PPE to be moved from the secure and protected building at San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021?

Subject: PPE Update
Hi Iliana,
As you probably are aware, all PPE has been moved out of Fiesta Hall and is currently stored in a fenced area between Gates 9 & 10.
The Red Cross was only able to take the 10 adjustable hospital beds (MASH type). Their storage area was not large enough to accommodate the remaining five bariatric beds nor the five “home style” hospital beds, all of which are in the outdoor storage area.
The plan is to move as much as possible into Sequoia Hall after the SaaStr Conference, to protect it from the elements. The would require the County to rent Sequoia Hall as it would be filled with PPE.
The following items would be relocated first. If any space remains, we will move the most useful of the remaining into Sequoia. Masks Gloves Beds
All remaining FMS items and empty containers Bleach
Please let me know if you are in agreement with the above.

Thanks, Steve

Mr. Stogner, 

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines that predates the January 27, 2022 agreement I produced to you.  There was no written agreement prior to January 13, 2022 at 6PM, and there is no separate Financial Agreement.  Because Mr. Brown is not a County employee, I cannot know what he meant in his blog post, but as far as we are aware, he was not referring to a written record.

Thank you,

Caiti

The reason I asked for this document is simple, every time someone gives me more than $10,000,000 of something I like to have some kind written verification, proof, evidence etc that I in fact do have the authority to distribute this PPE which was paid for with FEMA money.

It took San Mateo County Government 90 days to say the truth.

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022.

Agenda Item #5 Update on Event Center Surplus Safety Equipment

This was the title for Agenda Item 5 of the March 22, 2022 Board of Supervisors Meeting. That might explain why there was only ONE public comment on this topic.

The person that put this on the Agenda was San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy, with the approval of County Counsel.

I would say this was more of a regurgitation of the same story that Mr. Callagy has been promoting since January 13, 2022, when he told ABC 7 I-Team Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes that he knew nothing about it.

San Mateo County News.com Article March 21, 2022

In San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy’s Presentation he fails to mention these three, that I reported on the day before in the above article.

Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez, San Mateo County Chief Financial Officer Roberto Manchia, Department of Emergency Management Director Daniel Belville.

County Manager to the Board of Supervisors March 22, 2022 “I think the Important thing is that we are TRANSPARENT. We own up to it, and we learn from it”

I personally think the Important thing is tell the truth from the Get Go.

Let me give a simple example, On January 13, 2022 SMC County Manager Mike Callagy never mentions James Brown or the Wine Country Marines a 501-C in Sonoma. He did say “We brought in the Marines.”

He doesn’t mention Iliana Rodriquez of his office has been vetting James Brown and WCM since December 2021.

Mike Callagy, Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocom and Dave Pine. You are NOT TRANSPARENT.

Board of Supervisor Meeting March 22, 2022 Item 5 starts at 1:36:00

Red Flag 1:39:00 mark, “The other goods were eventually moved outside for temporary storage and were regrettably ah remained there during the significant storms last fall LEADING TO THE INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION.” What do you know about this Independent Investigation so far? What is the scope of this Investigation? Is the Investigation about the significant storms? Why was there an update without having this Investigator make a presentation at the BOS meeting?

Red Flag 1:39:11 mark, “We’ve been lucky enough throughout this AFTER ACTION to really partner with Wine Country Marines to continue to work on distributing these surplus equipment. Everybody knows what an AFTER ACTION is, Right?

The residents of San Mateo County remember what the Foster City Gang of 3 did to their City Manager.

Foster City Manager Peter Prinejad was FIRED for ZERO reason. The residents of Los Altos Hills are the winners in that case they now have a Great City Manager.

Still many more questions to be answered.

San Mateo County’s $10M PPE story.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is a work in progress, more questions remain.

As it turns out Several San Mateo County Employees knew a lot about that PPE product.

Here are three who knew according to San Mateo County Counsel.

Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez, San Mateo County Chief Financial Officer Roberto Manchia, Department of Emergency Management Director Daniel Belville.

“County Manager Mike Callagy was not involved in these discussions and did not authorize the distribution of equipment to or through Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022, and he did not have contact with Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines on or before that date.”

San Mateo County was looking to Donate the More than $10M of PPE Prior to September 2021

This took a little while to get this information from San Mateo County Government. As you will remember on January 13, 2022 at 6:12 PM, ABC News Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes broke the story to the residents of San Mateo County. What we learned from Interviews with County Manager Mike Callagy and Candidate for Congress and former President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors David Canepa, Neither of those two gentleman and the rest of the Board of Supervisors had a clue about the more than $10M of product. They didn’t know it was moved, wet, or about to be DONATED by the Wine Country Marines on January 25, 2022.

In December 2021, a MassVax employee working at the Event Center suggested to Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez that Wine Country Marines, a non-profit organization, might be a potential recipient organization.  Ms. Rodriguez thereafter began vetting Wine Country Marines to determine whether it would be an appropriate recipient.

Question? How many other 501-C’s were vetted?

California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES)

On January 12, 2022, Mr. Belville spoke to representatives from CalOES, who approved donations to non-profit organizations. Question did they approve THIS donation?

January 12, 2022 Mr. Belville spoke to James Brown of Wine Country Marines, who agreed to help donate and distribute the equipment and PPE to organizations in need. 

You might be asking, When was San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management created? The answer is December 6, 2021 by San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy.

Mr. Stogner,

We’ve looked into your request, and, after reasonable inquiry, here are the facts:  Prior to September 2021, when certain safety equipment stored at the San Mateo County Event Center was moved outdoors, the County was looking to donate surplus safety equipment and PPE stored there, including equipment and PPE that was never moved outside. 

As part of this process, the County was vetting potential organizations to whom it might donate the supplies.  In December 2021, a MassVax employee working at the Event Center suggested to Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez that Wine Country Marines, a non-profit organization, might be a potential recipient organization.  Ms. Rodriguez thereafter began vetting Wine Country Marines to determine whether it would be an appropriate recipient.

In early January 2022, San Mateo County Chief Financial Officer Roberto Manchia directed Department of Emergency Management Director Daniel Belville to confirm with the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) that supplies could be donated to non-profit organizations.  On January 12, 2022, Mr. Belville spoke to representatives from CalOES, who approved donations to non-profit organizations.

That same day, Mr. Belville spoke to James Brown of Wine Country Marines, who agreed to help donate and distribute the equipment and PPE to organizations in need.  On January 13, 2022, this arrangement was confirmed, and Mr. Brown posted as much on his blog.  No PPE or safety equipment was given to Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines prior to January 13, 2022.  We are also not aware of any County employees who communicated with Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines prior to Mr. Belville’s discussion with Mr. Brown on January 12, 2022; as far as we know, the only person related to the County who spoke with Mr. Brown before this date about this issue was the MassVax employee who originally suggested Wine Country Marines to Ms. Rodriguez.

County Manager Mike Callagy was not involved in these discussions and did not authorize the distribution of equipment to or through Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022, and he did not have contact with Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines on or before that date.

We will continue to investigate your records request, and, as indicated in my March 11, 2022 email, I will provide an update on or before March 24, 2022.

Thank you,


Caiti
