Carlos Bolanos continues to mislead the Residents of San Mateo County.

This full page ad page 7 in the May edition of the Spectrum, He identifies himself as the incumbent he’s not. He was illegally appointed by three Supervisors led by Don Horsley on July 12, 2016. The ballot has it right as appointed Sheriff. Jerry Hill should have fired him on April 22, 2007, he simple refused to do his job. Now he is endorsing him.

Sheriff write-in candidate says he’s running to proclaim he has secrets

Heinz Puschendorf (Photo by Dave Boyce/The Almanac)

Deputy Heinz Puschendorf, at one time the president of the San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, is running for the top job of sheriff in the June 5 election.

Puschendorf is a write-in candidate, having thrown his hat into the ring, he said, due to his dissatisfaction with the April 25 public forum in which questions were posed to his electoral competitors: appointed incumbent Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Deputy Mark D. Melville.

After a series of interviews with The Almanac, Puschendorf’s status with the Sheriff’s Office is still unclear – although he’s still listed on the department roster as a disabled employee.

During the interviews, he made a series of claims about the department, including assertions that he has been persecuted by department higher-ups. The Almanac was unable to confirm these claims, and Puschendorf provided no documentation.

Asked for his priorities if elected, Puschendorf said they include addressing a system of mandatory overtime that he considers abusive, resolving an irregular distribution of detectives that shortchanges property crime investigations, and correcting an unfair system of rotation of detective assignments.

He also wants a competitive election, he said, but expects retribution for being outspoken. “I am the lone voice,” Puschendorf said in one interview. “Why do I run? Because I’m the last chance and opportunity for the truth to hopefully get out before it gets smothered,” he said. Because “they’re going to smother me. They’re going to do all the bad stuff, but I’m holding the aces in my hand because I have all the secrets. I know where the bodies are buried.”

The “truth” he refers to concerns what happened in April 2007 in Las Vegas, when Bolanos was detained by police along with then-sheriff Greg Munks when FBI agents raided an illegal and run-down brothel in a residential neighborhood.

Puschendorf said his account is based on visiting Las Vegas after the incident and researching the facts as presented by media accounts and talking with people who told him they witnessed the events of that night.

Records of that night have disappeared, he claimed, but he said he has thousands of pages of documents, including emails and depositions, that attest to a story that has not been told. He provided none of this documentation to The Almanac. He asserted that Bolanos has demanded silence from everyone.

His papers and the story they tell, he insisted, “is how I’ve kept my job. I have everybody with dirty stuff and (dirty) laundry. They’re trying to do all the stuff to get me. … That’s why I had to go public and run for (sheriff). I’m afraid of getting victimized even further.”

Puschendorf, 51, has not worked since April 2016 due to an injury incident in 2014 in which he was told to subdue an inmate in the jail. But while he is not being paid, his name is still on a roster that he provided to The Almanac. He is listed as disabled, but says he has not received any of the disability pay he’s entitled to. His situation has been manipulated, he claimed, to effectively render him a ghost on the roster and prevent him from getting due process.

He provided no documentation of efforts on his part to receive disability pay, and no explanation as to why he hasn’t filed for disability retirement.

Union management does not have his back and is in cahoots with the sheriff, Puschendorf said.

If he doesn’t win the election, he said, he’ll try for a recall “and do what it takes to take back control from these corrupt politicians and give control back to the good people of San Mateo County.”

I like this last statement and it falls in line with what Supervisor District 3 Candidate Dan Stegink said to the San Mateo Daily Journal. Even if Mr. Bolanos is elected it is unlikely he will complete his term.

Heinz has said publicly many times to vote for Mark Melville.

It’s the Sheriff Office not Sheriff Department like a police department.

NOW would have been the time for Deputy Puschendorf to release the documents he said he has on Operation Dollhouse. If he waits until after the election, he’s a goner

What’s confusing is that Puschendorf doesn’t really have a job at the Sheriff’s office now, so it’s not clear what fallout he would have from submitting his documents about Operation Dollhouse to the Almanac. He says not showing them to the public is how he’s kept his job but he doesn’t have a job.Did the Almanac ask him to clear this issue up? What on earth would happen to him if he showed his *alleged * evidence to reporters?

That photo!!

“he made a series of claims about the department, including assertions that he has been persecuted by department higher-ups”

“Because I’m the last chance and opportunity for the truth”

“I have all the secrets. I know where the bodies are buried.”

“he said he has thousands of pages of documents”

Sheesh. Direct from the Trump twitter timeline in 2016. Only thing he forgot was to say is he is sending detectives to Hawaii to investigate a birth certificate.

This is the guy y’all want to splinter the vote for? Great choice.

Melville.

Unfortunately, this candidacy is playing right into Bolanos’ hands (other candidates can’t possibly be taken seriously).

Melville is the man to vote for here. He’s a serious guy, and a seriously intelligent, experienced, ethical and responsible individual.

Hope he wins.

San Mateo County Domestic Violence for “Those Who Matter.” SMCSO Lt. Kristina Bell case.

Bell_Kristina 1 copyWhen someone calls 9-1-1 for assistance, there is an expectation public safety / police will respond and provide the intervention and application of resources needed, to effectively resolve the situation, in a fair impartial way -one designed to protect the community, at large, and the victim, in particular. The sad little secret, amongst line law enforcement officers, in San Mateo County, is that the rhetoric by law enforcement executives and the district attorney does not match reality. For all the lofty rhetoric, police executives and the district attorney show preference to people that matter -law enforcement officers and politically connected individuals.

Just such an incident / case recently occurred, on the morning of April 22, 2018. On that occasion, Redwood City Police officers were summoned to a residence on Sanchez Street, in Redwood City, on the report of a domestic violence disturbance in which a victim had been assaulted (pushed) by her spouse, resulting in injury (bruising), her cell phone taken (preventing her from summoning assistance), and her fleeing the dwelling, in search of help. Further, the victim had told authorities there were unsecured firearms in the residence and as well as a three year old child.

Two officers and a supervisor (sergeant) had responded to this call and given the suspect in the matter, a San Mateo County Sheriff’s Lieutenant, Lieutenant Kristina Bell, a pass -neither questioning her; following the Redwood City’s polices and procedures for handling incidents of domestic violence; following the County’s domestic violence investigation protocol of which Redwood City PD is a signatory; seeking an emergency protective order; seizing the firearms present, within the residence; and or attempting the interview and recording of all parties involved.

Such conduct by the responding officers and their supervisor flies in the face of Redwood City PD’ s professed position of aggressively addressing all domestic violence incidents as well as the district attorney’s published position, on the subject.

Was this incident and the manner in which it was addressed / resolved an anomaly, an aberration not condoned by officials? Sadly no. It follows a familiar pattern, in San Mateo County, amongst law enforcement executives and the district attorney, in giving persons that matter a pass -Sheriff’s Sgt Jason Peardon breaking into the Belmont residence of his in-laws, assaulting his estranged wife and her male companion, and Belmont PD documenting the matter as an information report versus domestic violence, etc..

The intervention expected and demanded by the community did not occur. Instead, a domestic violence suspect was left at large with ready access to firearms and a victim and child left in harms way.

Welcome to San Mateo County

Redwood City Residents should be asking the Mayor and City Council to meet with the Police Chief and find out how did this Protocol Violation happen under his watch. When was CPS first notified?

Citizen Oversight Committee of Redwood City Police Department, San Mateo County Sheriff Office and District Attorney’s Office is a must have, to solve this illegal behavior.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe refuses to answer ACLU questions regarding June election. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Mateo County residents are just starting to realize that they are responsible for the behavior of the Sheriff and the District Attorney’s Office. Steve Wagstaffe so far is running unopposed in the June 5, 2018 election. That in itself should cause the residents to ask Why? Out of all the employees in the DA’s Office there is not one who believes he/she could do a better job than Steve Wagstaffe. Not one person willing to offer the residents a choice for one of the most important and powerful elected offices in San Mateo County.

Just look at the Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case for Abuse of Authority, Prosecutorial Misconduct.

The Write In candidate time period ends May 22, 2018

We recommend voters vote on June 5, 2018, So far there are 2 Write In candidates one for Sheriff and one for Supervisor District 2. Lets see if some brave person will be a Write In candidate for District Attorney.

Write In Morgan Stogner for San Mateo County Supervisor District 2.

IMG_4298.JPG

If you are seeing this advertisement you are most likely in District 2.  Ask yourself, do you know who your Supervisor is or know what the Board of Supervisors does?  They are in charge of spending tax dollars for the County and are widely unknown.  They are also a place for concerned citizens to go with complaints against government agencies or people.

Morgan is a Write In candidate. He decided to run after he saw his opponent was unopposed.

Morgan is concerned for the average resident, his opponent is not, Morgan understands and respects Conflict of Interest, his opponent does not. Morgan respects Whistleblowers his opponent does not. Morgan will not mislead the residents his opponent does. Morgan Endorses Mark Melville for Sheriff his opponent Endorses Carlos Bolanos when she should have Investigated then fired him. Bolanos was caught and detained as a customer of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a child. Morgan is opposed to Human Trafficking in San Mateo County his opponent is not.

2012 the Grand Jury warned the residents of San Mateo County that it’s leaders (Supervisors) misled the Voters on the County’s financial status, in order to pass Measure A.  The Supervisors reported a deficit when in reality the Grand Jury had found the County had a surplus, making Measure A dishonest and unnecessary. Carole Groom was a Supervisor at that time.

Below is a link to the report.  If you do not have the time to read the entire report I would suggest going to page 11 and reading the Findings list.  Item number 7 and 8 specifically tell of the mistruths.

An inconvenient truth about San Mateo County’s “structural deficit” is that … there isn’t one!

2012 Grand Jury Report

WRITE IN Morgan Stogner Supervisor District 2 San Mateo County.

Morgan would not have voted in favor on any tax measure that misled the Voters.morgan_signature-2

Vote Dan Stegink for Supervisor District 3

Here are just a few reasons why we say this.

The incumbent Supervisor Don Horsley was one of the leaders who misled the voters on Measure A 2012. He promoted the false story that the County had a deficit when he knew that the County in fact had a surplus. Not very honest

This Grand Jury report is saying Supervisors Don Horsley and Carole Groom  and others were dishonest in misleading the residents/voters of San Mateo County re: Measure A

San Mateo County Grand Jury Report

In 2012 Supervisor Don Horsley announced right after Christmas when very few people would notice. That he was going to renege on his campaign promise of No salary if you elect him.On December 28, 2012 The Daily News reported “Horsley to take Supervisor Salary.” Don Horsley had pledged to forgo the job’s salary if elected citing the County’s economic struggles which never existed. So once again misstating the truth. Horsley announced he is going back on his election vow, saying he now needs the $120,000 annual Supervisors salary more than the County. Starting this month Horsley will receive a Supervisor’s salary, remember this article was written 12/28/2012. What it didn’t say was that Don Horsley had started receiving the salary on November 10, 2012. 46 days before his announcement, So once again he is being dishonest with the residents and voters of SMC.

July 12, 2016 Supervisor Don Horsley led the illegal coup which appointed Carlos Bolanos to Sheriff without the public knowing that was even remotely a possibility. Here is what Supervisor Dave Pine said about it.

Supervisor Dave Pine

The public was completely removed from this process,” referring to the rushed and unexpected appointment of Carlos Bolanos to the office of San Mateo County Sheriff.The 3-2 decision to appoint Mr. Bolanos was a surprise, They dispensed with involving the public in any way in the process. He is talking about Don Horsley here.

2017 Supervisor Don Horsley makes a false statement to CBS5 re: Stolen M-16’s from the Sheriff Office. We have asked him to verify the method of communication the previous Sheriff allegedly informed him they were used for spare parts. Don Horsley has refused to answer.
