San Mateo County Elected Officials should be Decent Human Beings, Most are Not.

By Michael G. Stogner

Foster City Councilman Herb Perez is just one example. He will be removed and replaced April 1, 2020 when the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election results are Certified. San Mateo County Election Official Mark Church has stated the results will be certified by April 1, 2020 even though California Governor Gavin Newsom extended that date to April 22, 2020.

The Real Question here is what did every single elected official in San Mateo County do to remove Herb Perez from office as soon as they became aware of his behavior. Did any one of them contact Herb Perez by phone, letter or e-mail and suggest he apologize, provide the Black Belt to Julia Vo, promise to change his behavior etc or even resign to avoid a successful recall? It would be good for the public to know how many elected officials contacted Herb Perez.

What did they do to protect this child and her mother once they came forward with this video.

RECALL is the only Real Citizen Oversight it’s that simple.

First SMC Elected Official to respond to Article.

I contacted Herb Perez about the way he treated Catherine Mahanpour during the nomination period for mayor pro tem in 2018/19.  His response was awful and I wrote him off at that point.

He is full of spit and vinegar.

San Mateo County Courts Closed for 60 Days.

By Michael G. Stogner

All courts in the State of California are closed and cases are delayed for 60 days. Better late then never, this was a no-brainer. San Mateo County Supervisors might take this time and finally secure the 400 County Center Building as they should have years ago. People entering the building without going through the metal detectors every single day.

Hon. Judge Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye Order

Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye said in her order that court facilities were “ill-equipped to effectively allow the social distancing and other public health requirements” that have been imposed across California to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

San Mateo County Courts not worried about COVID-19 Open for Justice.

by Michael G. Stogner

These three men in charge have decided it’s business as usual. What do they know that the rest of the world doesn’t? The CDC recommended that “for the next eight weeks,organisers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.”

Presiding Judge: Hon. Jonathan E. Karesh

Assistant Presiding Judge: Hon. Leland Davis, III

Court Executive Officer: Neal I Taniguchi

As of this morning no closure of the courts, Why?

Jury Pools are more than 50 people. There are more than 50 people standing or sitting in the halls waiting for the courts everyday.

San Mateo County Sheriff Office Booking Photo Audit.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Office released the Booking photo of Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez the day he was arrested which is exactly what the Sheriff Office is expected to do. Booking Photos belong to the Public.

Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez was Booked into jail, fingerprinted and photographed. He was charged with Smuggling a Cell-Phone and Drugs into Maguire Jail where he worked and he gave them to a Hells Angel Gang Member according to the Sheriff and District Attorney. That was over 5 years ago, There was never any evidence that those allegations were true or accurate. That is Outrageous Government Conduct, and Prosecutorial Misconduct.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino was arrested for DUI September 14, 2019 @ 11:30 PM by the Redwood City Police Department on Broadway near the Deputy Sheriff Association building which has a bar in it. He refused both Blood and Breath test which according to DMV website is a Suspension of Drivers License for a 1 year period. The officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV.

It’s not clear that Redwood City Police Officer’s took his Drivers License away from him or not at this time.

What is clear is that the Sheriff’s Office has refused to provide the Booking Photo.

The Supervisors of San Mateo County are the Oversight for the Residents.

Was Sheriff Sergeant Aquino Under-Charged and given Special treatment?

    Dear Supervisors,
    https://www.smcsheriff.com/sites/default/files/articles/19-11427.pdf

    See Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade do release the Booking photos of some people arrested in San Mateo County.
    They both are still refusing to release the Booking photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino who was arrested September 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department for DUI and refusing both Breath and Blood tests.
    Could you please ask both of them to explain why?
    Thank You

I’m still waiting.

The next Court Date for Sheriff Sergeant Aquino was April 6, 2020 but you can take that off of your calendar The D.A’s Office, Joshua Bentley and the Judge have quietly no reporters completed this DUI case this Wednesday.

Foster City Councilman Herb Perez Recalled

By Michael G, Stogner

San Mateo County Politician Herb Perez was Recalled March 3, 2020 and the results will be certified within 30 days of that date.

Herb Perez is a business owner and Councilman in Foster City who was about to be termed out. The political experts in the county suggested the concerned citizens who are the Only Oversight of elected officials in reality to let him get termed out and just don’t vote for him in the future. A Recall is expensive and very time consuming and the odds are it will fail.

Herb Perez responded to the Petition for Recall with this statement. “They cannot name a single wrongdoing.” Really did he watch their Videos?

Video of Wrongdoing

Video of Wrongdoing to the wrong woman Stacy Jimenez

During public meetings he has openly called residents fools, morons, miscreants, malfeasants and ultracrepidarians as a form of intimidation.

The recall effort was organized by a group called FC Watchdog, which accused Perez of “open disdain for residents” and pro-development agenda. Jeff Regan, an organizer for the recall, said about the recall effort, “It’s because when a resident goes up to speak publicly and gets treated with disdain — that blocks democracy and it’s an intimidation tactic. At a certain point, enough is enough.”

Tuesday’s election also chose his successor former police Capt. Jon Frooman

Herb Perez could have avoided having the title RECALLED added to his name & resume by simply being Civil, he choose not to. He chose to sue instead, file criminal allegations to the District Attorney’s Office who declined to move forward. He saw that more than 4,300 people signed the recall petition that is enough to pass the recall.

The question for the other elected officials who served with Herb Perez on the Foster City Council. Why was his behavior OK with you?

As of this afternoon there are 7,275 Yes votes to recall which is 77.28%

March 6, 2020 I had the privilege of attending the celebration and acknowledging of all the volunteers that made this result possible. I was impressed by the age swing from very young to the Seniors but most notable was the Women involved. One woman made the comment that she and her Granddaughter went door to door. I thought that was so cool. I also noticed that Reporter Annie Berman of KQED was the only other News Media that attended the most Important Election Story in San Mateo County this year for sure.

I couldn’t help but notice the absence of any San Mateo Daily Journal reporter at this event. Jerry Lee and Jon Mays chose not to cover it. Why?

“It is the mission of the Daily Journal to be the most accurate, fair and relevant local news source for those who live, work and play on the mid-Peninsula”

We are the Peninsula’s leading local news­paper and the Peninsula’s local news leader. In fact, the Daily Journal has been called “the de facto newspaper of record for San Mateo County.”

This explains it: Could your business use 83,450 new leads in one day from one of the most affluent areas of the nation? That’s what we do at the Daily Journal, we connect advertisers to our readers; it’s that simple.

One of the many lessons this Brave group of citizens learned in causing this Recall, It is Expensive to get your message out in a way to cause action. Think about that, The San Mateo Daily Journal claims to have 83,450 readers per day. This event was not Newsworthy to them.

There are still Legal Expenses to be paid, if you would like to contribute.

SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI Case Next Court Date April 6, 2020

IMG_1207

By Michael G. Stogner

March 2, 2020 Court date results next court date is April 6, 2020.

As you can see this is not his Booking Photo, for some unknown reason Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Rosemerry Blankswade the Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer have refused to provide it or even respond to my several requests.

On October 1, 2019 San Mateo County News.com was the first News & Information Service to report his arrest September 14, 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department at 11:30 PM near the DSA Building on Broadway Ave. He crashed a vehicle into a tree with a RWCPD Officer right behind him. He was to belligerent to qualify for First Chance in Burlingame but RWCPD did him a Big Favor by taking him there anyway. Easier to hide the arrest if he was accepted there. The Staff refused to accept him and RWCPD drove him to Maguire Jail in Redwood City where he was supposedly BOOKED for DUI and Refusing both Blood and Breath Tests, which is a loss of Drivers License for those who don’t matter.

Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino retained Attorney Josh Bentley (AKA The Fixer) before any criminal charges were filed. That is always the best way to do it.

Sergeant Aquino did not appear at his last Court Date and most likely he will not appear at the next one.

I sent this story to all the San Mateo County Newspapers, The only paper to publish a story was the Palo Alto Daily Post October 25, 2019 24 days later.

Corruption in San Mateo County is nothing new, I think most residents know it exists and they are just thankful it hasn’t affected them personally. They don’t think there is anything they can do about it. So they remain Silent and allow it, this case is a perfect example.

Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos think he doesn’t have to release the Booking Photo?
