City of Half Moon Bay and San Mateo County Counsel, Conflict of Interest? Sarah Gatliff case.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. was killed May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California. She was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez, who fired 11 hollow point bullets at her at close range. San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, and the District Attorney’s Office claim the Body Worn Camera that was working perfectly just minutes before the Homicide was turned off by Deputy Dominguez.

The City of Half Moon Bay and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office have made NO CORRECTIONS since Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed on June 3, 2014 by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Trieu.

Both Sheriff Deputies responded alone, with NO PLAN. Both Homicides had Evidence Tampering. Yanira was shot and killed within 20 seconds of Deputy Trieu exiting his vehicle.

How hard would it be for the City of Half Moon Bay and the Sheriff’s Office to change the procedure that would stop Deputies from going by themselves. DO NOT go to the scene ALONE, Have a Plan.

The current plan is Let Them Sue us It’s Not Our Money.

The City of Half Moon Bay is represented by San Mateo County Counsel again.

San Mateo County, Felony Porn Distribution, When has that ever mattered?

By Michael G. Stogner

How many of the 45 Male San Mateo County Sheriff Employees were ever Investigated by the Redwood City Police Department and the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office? They were Distributing Pornography and a VIOLENT RAPE VIDEO on San Mateo County Computers located in the 400 County Center Building. How many of the 45 SMCSO Employees shared that Porn with under aged girls or boys?

Ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Sheriff Captain Christina Corpus or D.A. Steve Wagstaffe what did they do when they found out about it?

November 23, 2021 Dr. Dylan Edward O’Connor pled nolo contendere to one count of PC 288.2 a misdemeanor. Why was he Investigated at all and the 45 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees never Investigated. He lost his career, What did any of them lose? Nothing.

Dr. Dylan O’Connor’s next court appearance is February 28, 2022.

Redwood City Manager Melissa Stevenson Diaz, got a 10% Raise, Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Redwood City Manager Melissa Stevenson Diaz

City Manager’s are responsible for the behavior of the Police Department, they are the OVERSIGHT for the Residents, to make sure that Nobody is Above the Law.

The Redwood City Police Department has two sets of Daily Log Records, The City manager is fine with that.

San Mateo County News.com January 23, 2020 Article

The Redwood City Police Department doesn’t report all Domestic Violence Calls they respond too. The City manager is fine with that.

San Mateo County News.com May 22, 2018 Article

The Redwood City Police Department does NOT follow DUI protocol, with everyone they arrest. The City Manager is fine that.

San Mateo County News.com October 1, 2019 Article

Ask Melissa Stevenson Diaz if the Redwood City Police Officers took possession of San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino’s California Drivers License as required for failing to provide Blood or Breath samples. The answer is No they did not, The City Manager is fine with that.

San Mateo County News.com September 11, 2018 Article “Those Who Matter”

The City Manager was fine with this.

Many Americans are lucky they are still employed at all during this Pandemic, many are employed at less hours then pre-pandemic and yet thankful to have any employment at this time. Last year Melissa Stevenson Diaz received a 3.5% increase in salary. Why did the City Council approve a 10% increase in salary this year?

That is the Question the Residents of Redwood City should be asking.

Superior Court of California San Mateo County has cancelled Public Access by Phone as of November 22, 2021, Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Evidently the Pandemic is over and Somebody in San Mateo County is inviting the public to attend Court proceedings in person in the 400 County Center Building, Redwood City, California.

There is no Press Release or Official Notice of this change on the Courts Website. Why?

Who authorized this change?

Updated 11/22/21 – The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.

Yesterday San Mateo County News.com published an article on Dr. Dylan Edward Oconnor’s court appearance.

SMCN.com Article

I was on the Public Access phone line for 3 hours waiting to hear the court proceeding just like I have done many times this last 2 years. The phone line and code worked perfectly, other than I got disconnected about 8 times and had to re-dial which I did. At no time was there a notification that the Telephonic Public Access had been discontinued. I checked the Court case file and saw it was already Held and Completed.

Here are 10 other Counties close to San Mateo County, They still think there is a Pandemic.

Who would want to cut off the Telephonic Public Access? A more important question is WHO did cut it off? What has recently happened in San Mateo County Superior Courts that would caused this change. The only thing I can think of is recently, Hon. Judge Joseph Scott, his Court Clerk Katrina Bihl and the Court Reporter all conspired and committed Perjury in the x Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez 7 year criminal case.

Dr. Dylan Edward O’Connor in Court today 8:30 AM to listen 206-279-9589 code 599028

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: After being on the phone line for public access for 3 hours and being disconnected 8 times and not hearing one word spoken, I checked with the case file to find out that the case was already heard and over. It seems the San Mateo County Superior Court has cancelled the Public’s ability to listen in on Courts cases without putting your life at risk.

Updated 11/22/21 – The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.

One of the charges against him is PC 288.2(a)

TITLE 9. OF CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON INVOLVING SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC DECENCY AND GOOD MORALS [261 – 368.7] 

As you can see some people get charged with this crime, while 45 male San Mateo County Sheriff Employees DON’T. How is that possible?

FPPC, “You don’t want to be investigating your own agency.” and they Didn’t.

By Michael G. Stogner

FPPC Commissioner Catherine Baker

Thank You, to the Los Angeles Times for following up on the complaint of Commissioner Catherine Baker. I think it’s fair to say that inquiry caused the Attorney Generals Office to get involved. Time for an AUDIT of the FPPC complaints. The FPPC had the complaint for 7 months and Never Investigated it.

The Complaint was filed in April 29, 2021 with FPPC Enforcement Division.
LATIMES November 12, 2021 Requested information about the Investigation.
November 12, 2021 FPDC Enforcement Division recused itself.

LATIMES Article November 23, 2021

Watchdog complaint hidden for months

By John Myers
SACRAMENTO — A campaign finance investigation against a top official at California’s political watchdog agency sat in limbo and hidden from public view for months, raising questions about whether the government organization holds its own members to the same standard as candidates and campaigns across the state.
The complaint against Catharine Baker, a member of the California Fair Political Practices Commission and former Republican legislator, was filed in April with the agency’s enforcement division. On Nov. 12 — the same day The Times requested information regarding the case — the FPPC enforcement division recused itself from the investigation and asked state Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta to assume control.
“I’m very surprised by this,” said Bob Stern, former FPPC general counsel. “The question then becomes, what other cases are they not disclosing? Is this one bad example or typical of how they are operating?”
Commission Chairman Richard Miadich said he instructed staff members months ago to move the case to the attorney general and provided a copy of an email dated April 29 confirming that directive. But he said he didn’t know why the transfer of the case didn’t happen until just a few days ago.
“We have never had a situation where a sitting commissioner has had a complaint filed against them,” Miadich said Monday. “We needed some time to do our homework.”
A statement from Bonta’s office confirmed receipt of the documents but offered no other details.
Baker was appointed to the commission in December, one of five members who oversee the implementation and enforcement of California campaign finance laws. She served in the state Assembly from 2014 to 2018 representing portions of the eastern Bay Area and disputes the allegations contained in the anonymous complaint, submitted through the FPPC’s online system in April.
“The anonymous complaint is incorrect, both on the facts and on the law,” Baker said in a phone interview.
At issue is whether she failed to properly file paperwork related to a possible 2030 campaign for the Assembly and whether additional disclosure of donors was required when transferring $125,000 in leftover funds from her 2018 campaign committee to an account for a possible future campaign.
“Our filings were complete and accurate and filed on time with the advice of legal counsel to ensure full compliance,” she said.
Complaints made against political candidates and campaigns are reviewed by the state commission’s enforcement staff. If an investigation is launched, FPPC officials inform the parties in question and disclose the inquiry in an online system the public can access.
But after the staff examination into Baker’s activity began, the information was not displayed in the online database. Miadich told The Times that the agency’s “transparency portal” is designed to provide information on cases under the commission’s jurisdiction and that, in this case, the information being gathered by FPPC staff members didn’t fall under that category.
“At no point were we actively investigating this complaint,” he said.
On Nov. 12, The Times asked the commission’s press office whether an investigation into Baker was underway and, if so, the status of the inquiry. That same day, Chief Enforcement Officer Angela Brereton sent a letter to Bonta asking his department to take over the case.
“Because Commissioner Baker is currently in office, the Commission is recusing itself from this matter,” Brereton wrote, also noting that FPPC staff members “have not made any determination” on whether Baker had violated state campaign finance regulations.
Miadich said Monday that Brereton could have made clear that plans to transfer the case had been in the works for some time.
“I think it would have been helpful for her to contextualize that letter,” he said.
Stern, a co-author of California’s landmark Political Reform Act, said that the commission’s actions could be perceived to some as giving Baker special consideration and that FPPC investigators should have quickly handed the case over to Bonta.
“It’s all appearances,” he said. “You don’t want to be investigating your own agency, particularly commissioners.”

Pacifica Resident Therese Dyer is the expert on Corruption in San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

I don’t remember the exact date when I first met Therese Dyer but I do remember where it was. It was in line to enter the 400 County Center Building in Redwood City, California where we both were going to speak to the Board of Supervisors of San Mateo County during the two minute Public Comment.

I remember thinking, The Five Supervisors and their Staff should meet with Therese right away and get to the bottom of this subject matter she just reported to them, Corruption in San Mateo County, specifically in the District Attorney’s Office, The Courts, The Investigators etc. Most reasonable thinking residents would want the Supervisors to look into this to find out if her statements were true and accurate, and if they were too FIX IT.

I knew Therese was a Veteran, and had served on the San Mateo County Grand Jury.

It was at that BOS Meeting that I thought a simple fix would be for the Supervisors to set up a Public Data Base where all Notifications of wrong doing by San Mateo County Employees/Elected Officials could be filed. As anyone who has ever taken the time and energy to go to a BOS Meeting on a Tuesday morning at 9:00 AM to have the opportunity to Inform the Supervisors of Criminal behavior or other serious subjects knows, 2 minutes goes by pretty fast, and you might be a little nervous. Most likely you can not come close to saying everything you want to say.

I remember being so nervous before I made Public Comment to the Supervisors of SMC, reporting Corruption of some Law Enforcement Employees, and every time I spoke the Supervisors would say “Thank You, Mr. Stogner for your comments.” I became more comfortable once I realized that they couldn’t care less about the Corruption.

A Public Data Base however would allow you to state everything, Names, dates, allegations etc. The other benefit is that information would be Public.

I can say this about Therese Dyer, for the last 20 years that I am aware of, She has been doing her very best to inform the Residents of San Mateo County of the Corruption in the Government.

What would You, have done?

By Michael G. Stogner

By the year 2010 I had been working on Eliminating Corruption in San Mateo County for about 10 years. I received this document from a very Brave and Proud Female San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy. I remember thinking Why Me? I’m just a San Mateo County guy trying to do the right thing. Her first sentence let me know others have known about my efforts for the previous 10 years. My main goal was to protect this Sheriff Deputy and make sure she did not get FIRED. Mission accomplished.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office 45 Males sharing Pornography and a Violent Rape Video

The obvious question for all Elected Officials in San Mateo County is, What did you do about this?

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, What did you do about this, when you were the Under Sheriff in 2010.

Candidate for Congress David Canepa

Supervisor President David Canepa now a Candidate for Congress, What did you do about it?

How many of the now 760,000 residents read about this in 2010 or even now in 2021. What was the outcome? How many of the 7 print media businesses EVER reported on this subject?

A reasonable person would think this is a Newsworthy story.
