Federal Government should Investigate.

Letter to Editor

I am a San Mateo County citizen, resident and taxpayer.

San Mateo County should not investigate the 10 million dollars worth of P.P.E. / Protective Personal Equipment that was damaged by negligence, boxes outside for several months not protected from the elements or persons. I am grateful that this story was reported by ABC / KGO TV. The Federal government should be the agency that investigates the wrongdoing of San Mateo County, and the San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy.

Sincerely,

Mark De Paula

San Mateo, California

$10M PPE, San Mateo County Investigating Itself again. Bad Idea.

By Michael G. Stogner

The Residents, Elected Officials and Candidates are fine with that.

Most recently San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus, and Retired Sgt. Jeffrey Kearnan Investigated the Sheriff’s Activity League Embezzlement and Money Laundering that involved several people and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

San Mateo County News.com is going on the record to say that San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy is the last person that should be involved in the Investigation of the reported $10,000,000 of Personal Protective Equipment PPE that was stored outside on the San Mateo County Event Centers property for more than three months. County Manager Mike Callagy is RESPONSIBLE.

A reasonable person would would know “He can not Investigate Himself” but don’t forget this is San Mateo County where the residents are fine with the Conflict of Interest, and “Those Who Matter.”

Congresswoman Jackie Speier said the Obvious. “It has to be investigated.”

What she did not say is by who?

So for now it’s early since this story was reported by Dan Noyes, the amount is $10,000,000.

It involves Federal Money.

It involves PPE not cleaning supplies.

It involves Brand New PPE not Surplus.

The cause of this damage is Negligence, Not California Rain.

ABC News Dan Noyes, uncovers $10M PPE left outside unprotected by San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Excellent reporting by Dan Noyes, How many San Mateo County Officials and Employees knew about this and did nothing about it. Hopefully some of it can be saved. How did Dan Noyes get access to walk around and video all of the damaged boxes. I’m glad he did, it demonstrates a lack or Security by SMC. Also a big Thank You to the person who reported this. This was not a Mistake.

SMC County Manager Mike Callagy

The County Manager’s Office is responsible for the efficient day-to-day operations of San Mateo County’s government and carries out the vision and policies set by the Board of Supervisors.

Here is Dan Noyes Report and Video.

What does Dr. Scott Morrow say? County Manager Mike Callagy says “COVID is out there.”

By Michael G. Stogner

How many Children under the age of FIVE live in San Mateo County?

From Today’s San Mateo Daily Journal Article Hospitalizations Spiking in SMC.

“We’re not shutting down, society is not shutting down but COVID is out there.”

“I don’t want people to be alarmed. We can take care of those we need to take care of right now,” County Manager Mike Callagy said.

“So far, we’ve been able to manage. I expect we’ll be able to manage through this and we hope the peak is on the horizon here,” Callagy said,

This sounds like Rosanne Faust back in March of 2020.

San Mateo County now has 47 ICU Beds.

By Michael G. Stogner

Somebody might want to ask what happened to the other 20 ICU Beds and Trained Staff that the County has had for the last year? That is a Huge difference, remember it used to be 20% Availability which was 13 available. Today even with this number shows only 5 available for 780,000 residents.

San Mateo County 7 ICU Beds Available

By Michael G. Stogner

According to the County Health Data website the amount of ICU Beds and Staff has not been above the 15% the State is requiring for the last 12 days in a row. It would be good to know what is the real number of total ICU Beds and Staff . SMC has always allowed that number to fluctuate for some unexplained reason.

As you can see Jan 16, 2021 SMC had only 1 ICU Bed and Staff available. Think about that for a moment.

Also in the last 15 days San Mateo County had 106 Deaths from COVID-19.

Dr. Scott Morrow on Vaccines.

By Michael G. Stogner

Dr. Scott Morrow

Dr. Scott Morrow issued a statement Yesterday Jan 19, 2021. Here are the takeaways. Plan for 1 more year.

Late Summer is August “Many will get first dose by late summer.”

“If you are confused, don’t be alarmed. We are all confused,” Morrow said residents should instead focus on practicing gratitude and patience.

“The solution is to ramp up production,” said Morrow, adding, “I don’t know how feasible this is.”

It’s unclear how many doses have actually been shipped into the county or how many have been administered. Other than the fraction of doses shipped to County Health, local officials are unable to track shipments to multi-county health care providers or the commercial pharmacies treating long-term care facility residents and staff.

Getting vaccinated will not immediately exempt inoculated residents from COVID-19 health restrictions, noted Morrow who suggested mask wearing, social distancing and not gathering will be necessary through most of the new year.

Let’s give the new Federal Administration who is actually interested in giving the vaccines to the American Public a couple of weeks to see what they say.

Stay Safe, Wear a Mask, be Nice

  • Hello Dave,
    Can you tell me how many long term care residents have received the first and second doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine as of today?
    How many long term care residents does SMC have?
    Last weeks Burlingame’s Facility outbreak brought back memories for me personally, that is where my father spent the last days of his life.
    I think we can agree this population is the most likely to fill the Hospital ICU beds once they get COVID-19 and most likely to die.

  • Thank You, in advance for your response.
    Michael G. Stogner, San Mateo County News.com

I will publish the answer as soon as I get it.
