Dr. Scott Morrow issues New Health Order.

By Michael G. Stogner

You had to know this was coming.

ORDER NO. C19-12 OF THE HEALTH OFFICER OF THE COUNTY OF SAN MATEO FOR THE WEARING OF FACE COVERINGS IN WORKPLACES AND PUBLIC SETTINGS

DATE OF ORDER: August 2, 2021

Please read this order carefully. Violation of, or failure to comply with, this Order is a public nuisance subject to citation, abatement, or both, as well as a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (California Health and Safety Code § 120295 et seq.; California Penal Code § 69, 148(a)(1)).

SUMMARY OF THIS ORDER

This Order requires all individuals to wear face coverings when indoors in workplaces and public settings, with limited exemptions.

BACKGROUND

Since April 2021, the SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant has been circulating in San Mateo County. This variant is highly transmissible in indoor settings and requires multi- component prevention strategies to reduce spread. Despite high vaccination rates, San Mateo County is experiencing substantial levels of community transmission due to the Delta variant. While most COVID-19 cases are among unvaccinated residents, the proportion of breakthrough cases is increasing. Hospitalizations have also increased, primarily among unvaccinated persons. San Mateo County is also seeing a concerning uptick in cases among staff and residents in long-term care facilities.

The COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized in the US have been shown to be highly safe and effective at providing protection to individuals and communities, particularly against severe COVID-19 disease and death, and are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for all populations for whom the vaccine is authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration. The Health Officer strongly recommends that all eligible persons in the County be vaccinated.

Mark D. Melville for SMC Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.

Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.

Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.

Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.

I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.

I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.

One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff Office.”

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office” p.2

If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.

Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.

SAL Board of Directors

Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.

Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knows a Great thing when he hears about it.

Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

I’m talking about the City of South San Francisco and some of its Business owners last week providing FREE CATALYTIC CONVERTER ETCHING. This service was provided to the residents of SSF for serval days from several providers.

This was an excellent public service and a Great Message to thieves. Don’t Steal Catalytic Converters from SSF cars.

San Mateo Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his staff Know a Great Idea when they see or hear about it. They have set up a County wide program for this July 28, 2021 at a Jiffy Lube.

Video

This next Wednesday July 28, 2021 at Jiffy Lube in San Carlos located at 1030 El Camino Real. Appointments available as of this writing are just 2 out of 16. Here is the Appointment Link good luck.

Appointments

You would think a County with 766,000 residents would have more than one provider for 4 hours maybe the County Supervisors should talk to Sheriff Bolanos and come up with a County wide service to the residents of the County. I recommend they talk to the Government leaders of South San Francisco. Great Job.

By Michael G. Stogner

Yesterday morning I sent an e-mail to San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa asking him if he would confirm that he was one of the three NO Votes. I didn’t want to produce this article without conformation that it was true. He has not responded to my information request but the video I have linked below confirms it. The Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s Board of Directors meeting on July 21, 2021 Voted 19 Yes to 3 No for overwhelming approval. It’s always the Vote that counts.

NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 21, 2021 CONTACT: Kristine Roselius, Air District, 415.519.5419

Beth Willon, Communications Director for Supervisor Cindy Chavez, 408.660.5174

Air District strengthens refinery rule to reduce particulate emissions from fluidized catalytic cracking units

Reducing emissions from FCCUs is a critical step to control health-threatening air pollution

SAN FRANCISCO – The Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s Board of Directors today adopted amendments to Regulation 6, Rule 5: Particulate Emissions from Refinery Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Units to further reduce particulate matter emissions from petroleum refineries. The rule is now the most health-protective and stringent regulation of its kind in the country.

The Air District adopted Rule 65 in 2015 to minimize particulate matter emissions from Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Units, or FCCUs, which are the largest single source of particulate matter emissions at refineries and some of the largest individual sources of particulate matter in the Bay Area. The new amendments impose stricter FCCU control requirements to reduce health- threatening air pollution.

“Today’s vote by the Air District Board of Directors is a victory for every Bay Area resident, particularly those living in communities surrounding refineries as well as the refinery workers regularly exposed to harmful particulate pollution,” said Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez, who is chair of the Air District Board of Directors. “We are committed to protecting the health of both refinery workers and neighbors and look forward to implementing this landmark protective rule with Chevron and PBF.”

“As scientific understanding continues to advance on the harmful health effects of particulate matter

pollution, stricter controls are necessary to protect air pollution exposure in impacted areas and t

The Air District is committed to reducing toward controlling the most significant air pollution health hazard in the Bay Area.”

San Mateo County Wear Masks Indoors.

By Michael G. Stogner

You had to know this was coming, Chamber of Commerce is the last group of people to listen to when it involves your personal HEALTH. If you haven’t read the Crimson Contagion Functional Exercise of 2019 I recommend that you do. I read it in March of 2020 and made my own mind up on how to protect myself this last 16 months. I’m glad I did.

Crimson Contagion Exercise 2019

Something for the young and unvaccinated to think about is the Blake Bargatze story. A healthy 24 year old with the waiting to see attitude one day then in 3 different Hospitals for over 90 days needing both lungs replaced. He wishes he got vaccinated now I’ll bet he does. If you don’t know how much a hospital cost per day look it up.

Here is San Mateo County’s announcement from today.

Counties of San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and the City of Berkeley Recommend Masking Indoors for Everyone as a Precaution Against Increased Circulation of COVID-19

Thank You, A.G. Rob Bonta

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County can use your help, Please Investigate Tim Singer, Errol Chang, Yanira Serrano Garcia, Chinedu V. Okobi, Sandra Lee Harmon and Roger Allen Homicide cases just to name a few.

Note: I’m not suggesting Tim Singer was killed by Police, but the Investigation into his Homicide was done by San Mateo County Sheriff Office, It was not investigated as a Hate crime and look to the 2 Death Certificates cause of death.

“One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said.

Bonta forms special teams
Attorney general opens field offices to investigate fatal police shootings across state.
By Patrick McGreevy
SACRAMENTO — The state Department of Justice has opened field offices throughout California to investigate police shootings that kill unarmed civilians and has told law enforcement agencies that they must notify the state whenever such incidents occur, Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta said Wednesday.
The actions, including the opening of investigative offices in Los Angeles and Riverside, were in response to a new law that took effect July 1 requiring Bonta’s office to independently probe all fatal police shootings of unarmed civilians to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against officers.
Bonta said he expected the two new teams, one for Northern California and one for Southern California, would investigate 40 to 50 fatal police shootings each year based on historic trends.
“One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said. “Impartial, fair investigations and independent reviews of officer-involved shootings are one essential component for achieving that trust.”
The attorney general said 27 special agents and six supervisory agents would make up the California Police Shooting Investigation Teams. The Northern California office is in Sacramento.
Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), author of the new law, said he was concerned that the state Department of Justice had denied requests from some community leaders to undertake independent investigations of several high-profile police shootings.
The state DOJ has traditionally deferred to county prosecutors, who have handled such cases after investigations by the law enforcement agencies involved.
“Police shouldn’t police themselves, and the current system is fraught with conflicts of interest,” McCarty said during debate on the bill. He noted he had first proposed such legislation in 2015 and since then more than 800 people had been shot and killed by police in California.
The measure, Assembly Bill 1506, was opposed by some law enforcement groups, including the California State Sheriffs’ Assn., which said it could result in duplicate state and local investigations and that the state DOJ lacked the resources and was not equipped to take on the new responsibilities.
The measure “bypasses local investigatory processes, including established agreements to have outside agencies investigate officer-involved uses of force,” the association said in its opposition letter to lawmakers last year.
On Wednesday, Cory Salzillo, the association’s legislative director, said in a statement: “The sheriffs continue to work closely with the attorney general and Department of Justice on the implementation of procedures for the authority described in AB 1506.”
Under the law, the DOJ must investigate the fatal police shootings and submit a written report that states the facts of the case, its analysis, provides a conclusion on each issue raised by the shooting and recommends whether policies of the law enforcement agency should be changed.
If the DOJ determines criminal charges are warranted, it would prosecute the officers.
Bonta said his office would also continue to conduct “pattern and practice” investigations of law enforcement agencies if there appear to be problems beyond one incident. Those kinds of investigations, aimed at determining whether reforms should be pursued, are ongoing involving the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Vallejo Police Department.
On Wednesday, Bonta formally launched the new investigative teams and released the guidelines and protocols his office would use in investigating fatal police shootings, saying his agency will make public its investigative findings, including explanations when a decision is made not to seek a criminal prosecution.
Bonta said investigators would be deployed throughout the state with an emphasis on areas where there had historically been the most police shootings.
The field offices will allow investigators to get to the scenes of shootings quickly, he said.
The shooting investigation teams “will work in coordination with local responding agencies throughout the investigation of the officer-involved shooting, and members … will serve as concurrent, independent special agent investigators of these critical incidents,” the DOJ said in a statement.
Once an investigation is completed, the case will be turned over to the DOJ’s Special Prosecutions Section within the Criminal Law Division for review.
Administrative or civil investigations remain the responsibility of the law enforcement agency that employs the involved officers.
Bonta was a state assemblyman before Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed him attorney general in March to fill a vacancy left by Xavier Becerra’s departure to become U.S. Health and Human Services secretary in the Biden administration.
As a lawmaker, Bonta was a co-author of the legislation he is now implementing.
He said during a news conference Wednesday that the investigations would not be easy but that he expected local law enforcement would cooperate.
“I’m honestly not expecting a lot of pushback or tension or obstacles,” Bonta said. “We will be prepared for any that do arise.”
Representatives of the LAPD did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the new state investigation teams.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will “enthusiastically work collaboratively” with the DOJ in investigating fatal shootings of unarmed civilians, said Capt. John Satterfield, adding that the “goal is to assist the DOJ in completing a comprehensive, fair and impartial joint investigation.”
The state budget approved for the fiscal year that began July 1 includes $13 million to staff the investigation teams.
The DOJ said before Bonta’s appointment that it would need $26 million to properly investigate the 40 deadly police shootings that the state averaged each year.
He said Californians deserved an independent and transparent process for determining whether police officers acted properly when shooting unarmed civilians. He also said the issue was personal for him.
“I’ve heard firsthand the hurt and the pain that too many families and communities feel in the moments after these incidents,” Bonta said. “I have witnessed the lack of trust that these investigations will be treated fairly by our criminal justice system.”

Melville, Corpus and Bolanos for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Now there are three individuals who have stated their intention to run for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

Mark Melville ran against Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018 and received 52,996 total votes. He has always said he will be running in 2022.

SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus has now announced her intention.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraiser in Millbrae last month.

Now if San Mateo County Residents can find a candidate to run for District Attorney against Steve Wagstaffe that would be a step in the right direction.

City of Half Moon Bay, When to Notice the Public?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tonight June 24, 2021 at 5PM the City of Half Moon Bay’s Public Safety Sub-Committee is holding a public meeting at the Library.

They published the Notice last night at about 4:30 P.M. on the City’s website.

The Notice

As some of you know Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez are doing their best to protect the residents of their community.

They both brought to the attention of SMC the NEED for a Chief of Police in Half Moon Bay. Captain Saul Lopez has that title but it turns out to be a pretend title. The Same is true for San Carlos, Millbrae and every city and town patrolled by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him getting out of his patrol vehicle. He was responding to a Non Emergency 911 call. He tampered with evidence at the scene. There were false statements made by both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office.

If that sounds familiar it should the Homicides of Chinedu Okobi and Sandra Lee Harmon both had the same results. There were false statements made by both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office.

One thing has changed The City of Half Moon Bay asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman to provide to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS for the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide to verify the Governments Story that she fired first and Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera. That seems like a simple straight forward request. They both declined to do so.

The City of Half Moon Bay then sent a letter to the Attorney General of the State of California requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Investigators.

One good way to reduce the public attendance is to Notice late and put Public Comment at the end of the meeting.
