Supervisor David Canepa, Please pretend you are interested. Chinedu Oboki was murdered there is nothing more important.

Yesterday I almost interrupted several speakers at the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Meeting during the Public Comment period to wait until Supervisor Canepa was finished fidgeting and could look them in the eye. As it turned out he was unable to do that for the speakers talking about the Murder of Chinedu Oboki by 5 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. I knew what the speakers had sacrificed to get to this meeting to stand up in public and share their thoughts for 2 minutes. Some for the first time in their life, speaking to the elected leaders of their County, the Supervisors the name says it all.

I have spoken to the Board of Supervisors for 19 years as have many Good Concerned Citizens. I chose not to speak about the Murder of Chinedu Oboki by a gang of San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies because of David Canepas’ behavior and disrespect to all of the speakers yesterday. There were several important subjects the public talked about yesterday. Mr. Canapa was able to look like he was interested for the others the SMC Employees just trying to earn a decent wage, The recount of the $2.4B Measure W by Mr. Puschendorf.

I know it is not comfortable to talk about murder in public, the speakers did an excellent job, sharing their sadness, outrage, and their demands for the obvious the release of all videos and audio recording today. The reason is simple the Sheriff and the District Attorney of San Mateo County made statements about a man that SMC murdered to make it look like somehow he deserved to be killed. The recordings which belong to the Public would answer those important points. The public does not feel safe or trust the statements of Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, and Coroner Robert Foucrault.

Release the recordings today, to verify if the Sheriff and District Attorney lied to the public. The gang members should be on administrative leave and stay home until the investigation is complete. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos has them working instead and one was on duty at the entrance to the 400 County Center Building yesterday to be in plain site as the speakers entered and had their belongings checked through the security. Sheriff Bolanos knows Steve Wagstaffe and John Warren are going to clear his team.

I couldn’t help but think “These are my People” yesterday. I’m talking about all the Good and Concerned Citizens that showed up to speak or just hold signs. I am not talking about the 5 Supervisors, County Manager, County Counsel, Sheriff or District Attorney.

Yesterday was a warning to the County Leaders both elected and appointed aka “Those Who Matter” This is a Critical Issue, Do your Job, Supervise Release the Recordings Today.

President of Supervisors Dave Pine should have remained quiet when the speakers finished, instead he showed the public all they needed to know by explaining what Wagstaffe was doing more delays.

Local tax measures push closer to wins

  • Updated

Two local tax measure proposals continued clinging to a path toward narrow victory, as tallies still lingering from Election Day are inching toward the finish line.

According to Sunday, Nov. 25 results from the county Elections Office showing fewer than 10,000 ballots still need to be counted, Measure W, a half-cent sales tax for SamTrans and other transit initiatives, floats just incrementally above the supermajority required to pass with 66.75 percent support.

Similar results showed for Measure V, a $298 parcel tax floated to support the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District, as the tax collected 67.7 percent support, just ahead of the two-thirds majority required to pass.

Diana Reddy built her lead over Rick Hunter to 267 votes in the race for the Redwood City Council. The two are battling for a third seat, as Giselle Hale and Diane Howard already solidified victories.

Leads established by Richa Awasthi in her race for the second of two open seats on the Foster City Council and Flor Nicolas in her race for the third of three open seats on the South San Francisco City Council persisted, with South San Francisco Councilman Pradeep Gupta is still appearing to fall short of re-election.

In the Foster City Council contest, frontrunner Sanjay Gehani remains solidly the top vote getter with 26.61 percent and 5,110 total votes. Awasthi’s lead built marginally in the race for the second open seat with this most recent update. She currently has 19.41 percent of the vote and 3,728 total votes and is followed by Patrick Sullivan, who has 18.3 percent of the vote and 3,518 total votes.

In the South San Francisco City Council race, results largely held from the last update with frontrunner incumbent Mark Addiego remaining the top vote getter, followed by challengers Mark Nagales and Nicolas respectively. Incumbent Gupta remained in fourth place with 7,742 votes, behind Nicolas by 217 votes and Nagales by 514 votes.

Measure II, the bond proposed to help finance reconstruction of the Millbrae Community Center, continues to make incremental gains toward the supermajority required to pass but remains on pace to fail. The most recent tally showed 62.6 percent support, up marginally from a previous count of 62.4 support.

More than 260,000 ballots have been received so far. Of the ballots received, 250,682 have been counted. More results are scheduled to come out Monday, Nov. 26, and on subsequent days if needed.

Here is the reality ballots received = 286,247 of the ballots received 283,456 have been counted. That leaves 3,488 ballots to be counted.

LACSO Deputy Neil Kimball arrested, Rape by force, Dissuading a victim from testifying. Victim was 14 years old. Bail $2,000,000.

In San Mateo County a 29 year old man named Matthew Graves was sentenced to 4 years in Prison for making a phone call violating a restraining order. San Mateo County’s Historical Human Trafficking conviction.

Deputy accused of girl’s sexual assault
A detective in the L.A. County sheriff’s special victims unit is held on suspicion of raping a 14-year-old.
By Richard Winton and Maya Lau
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy assigned to handle sensitive sex abuse crimes, often involving vulnerable minors, has been arrested on suspicion of raping a 14-year-old girl in a case he was investigating.
Neil Kimball was taken into custody Friday evening after a monthlong inquiry into the allegations by the sheriff’s criminal internal investigation bureau. He was booked on suspicion of rape by force and preventing or dissuading a victim from testifying.
The 45-year-old investigator with the special victims unit met the girl during the “scope of his work,” a department spokeswoman said Monday.
Kimball, a 20-year department veteran, has investigated dozens of child molestation cases in Los Angeles County as a member of the elite specialized unit since 2013.
“The investigation and arrest resulted from information provided to the department by a member of the public,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. It did not announce the arrest Friday and provided the statement after an inquiry by The Times.
Kimball was investigated previously, after a woman told the Sheriff’s Department in February 2009 that Kimball had grabbed her hand several months earlier and tried to make her touch his genitals, according to a memo from the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Prosecutors ultimately declined to charge Kimball in the case.
Addressing questions about why Kimball was selected to join the Special Victims Bureau despite the 2009 investigation, the department said in a statement: “The prior allegations involving Det. Kimball were presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office and criminal charges were declined due to insufficient evidence. The department will conduct a review of the internal process related to Det. Kimball’s assignment at Special Victims Bureau.”
The statement also said that a review of Kimball’s prior cases is underway to ensure that there are no additional victims.
Officials said the department has not reached out to prosecutors because there are no pending cases or allegations.
News of the arrest sent a tremor through the ranks of sex crime investigators, who are normally thoroughly vetted before receiving such assignments.
Dan Scott, a retired Sheriff’s Department sergeant in the special victims unit who has investigated hundreds of child sex abuse cases, said of Friday’s arrest: “This is a shock. The unit has never had something like this happen.”
The alleged attack occurred in November 2017 in Ventura County, said Ventura County Chief Assistant Dist. Atty. Michael Schwartz, whose office has been involved in the case for the last month. L.A. County sheriff’s internal criminal affairs investigators reached out to the Ventura County office for assistance, officials said.
Kimball was relieved of duty with pay and was booked at the Los Angeles County Inmate Reception Center shortly after 11 p.m. Friday. His bail is set at $2 million.
Kimball has been away from the unit since August at a medical facility, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said. Kimball was at the facility when the allegation was reported Oct. 10.
A colleague at the special victims unit who took over some of his criminal investigations and contacted some of those involved learned of the accusation against Kimball, Nishida said.
“The internal criminal investigation bureau aggressively investigated the case and got a removal order for him from the facility on Friday and that is when he was arrested,” Nishida said.
Citing confidentiality laws, Nishida said she could not provide details of the type of medical facility.
Efforts to reach a representative for Kimball were unsuccessful.
Ron Hernandez, president of the Assn. for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, said his group had not been contacted by Kimball for representation.
“Any time I hear allegations of law enforcement crossing the line of their authority and trust it’s appalling, but I try to reserve my judgment until I know more details,” Hernandez said.
In the 2009 allegation, a woman and her friends were stopped by Kimball and another deputy in the parking lot of a hotel where the group was staying in August 2008, according to the memo by Deputy Dist. Atty. Deborah Escobar.
While the group of friends was being questioned by Kimball, some of the women in the group asked to use the bathroom in their hotel room, and Kimball allowed it. The deputy followed them to their room, near where the woman who later complained started filling up a Jacuzzi, according to the memo.
The woman said Kimball told her and her female friends to get into the hot tub, and some of them complied, wearing their underwear, as Kimball flirted with them, the memo said.
When Kimball used the bathroom in the group’s hotel room, the complainant went to check on him, and found the deputy exposing himself, according to the memo by Escobar. The woman said Kimball took her hand and placed it on his genitals and grabbed her buttocks, but she pulled away.
Prosecutors declined to file a charge of sexual battery against Kimball, finding no corroborating evidence of the woman’s complaint.
The witnesses in the hotel gave contradictory statements and the complainant failed to cooperate with investigators, Escobar wrote.
Scott said any previous allegations of sexual misconduct would normally exclude a person from the special victims unit.
“An investigation like this requires [that] you interview all the prior victims he came into contact with during his time there,” said Scott, who has served as a consultant on federal and county child abuse commissions. “You have to be very careful with the vetting for this unit because they come into contact with vulnerable victims.”

Measure W Failing. Great news for the taxpayers of San Mateo County.

samtrans-1-1533683163-3178

Update 11/9/2018 Without knowing how many ballots were mailed it is impossible to have confidence in this election. As of 9:00AM there are at least 146, 378 ballots to be tallied.

The elections office has just posted it’s official update at 4:30PM today. Mark Church is still refusing to say how many ballots were mailed out. He is only saying that he has received 215,480 and counted/tallied only 111,637 that leaves 103,843 ballots remaining to be tallied.

Total Yes Votes 69,132 = 65.65%

Total No Votes 36,173 = 34.35%

The Yes on Measure W Campaign with total reported funding of $1,500,000 of that $650,000 of Taxpayer money used against the Taxpayers.

The No on Measure W Campaign with a reported total funding of $5,700

Thank You to Jack Hickey for warning the public.

More than $1,500,000 of taxpayer money was spent on a campaign run by TBWB Strategies. See: http://www.tbwb.com/approach. The campaign phase of their strategy was step 4 in their strategy. This is “electioneering” and should be a felony misappropriation of public money.

Vote NO on “W”

 

The Elections Office should be Audited.

SMC Grand Jury 2012 warned the residents about the elected officials misleading the voters.

Mark-Church

Mark Church should be proud his accomplishment, This should come as no surprise to any readers of San Mateo County News.com. I have said San Mateo County is the Most Corrupt County in the United States of America.

Mark Church refuses to tell the residents how many ballots were mailed out? How many ballots were received? How many ballots were tallied. How many duplicate ballots were mailed out and why/how did that happen? Santa Clara County updated the tallied ballots yesterday at 3:59 PM and this morning at 9:20AM. Not the case with San Mateo County No update yesterday at all, and today update is scheduled for 5PM.

You can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure. Mr. Church is doing this on purpose.

Juan P. Lopez

Last election San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s name was deleted. He was told his vote was cancelled after he received his sample ballot. Here are his comments:

Hello Michael,
This story brings to mind the last election. Mark Church and his cabal did cancel my ability to vote. This surprised me when I had not received my ballot in the mail. I did receive my sample ballot, but to my surprise my election ballot never arrived. After waiting a couple of days to see if it was delayed, I contacted the elections office. I was told that my name had been cancelled. Imagine that. One less vote for Carlos Bolanos not dealt with. Who cancelled my ability to vote? Was it the same corrupt county cabal that controls everything in this county? From working there for so many years, I saw many things and was told to just put in my time and retire when I could. This county management needs to be completely replaced from the Board of Supervisors all the way down. Those that are not corrupt, are just as guilty for knowing it occurs and continue to turn a blind eye to it. Innocent people get fired, disciplined and even prosecuted in order to tarnish their names to send a message for all the employee’s that are still there. Bring your lunch boys, I am not going away.
