A gang is a group or society of associates. It’s not Illegal to be a member of a gang.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, San Mateo County Executive Officer Mike Callagy, San Mateo County Logistics Section Chief Risk Manager Scott Johnson, San Mateo County Counsel John Nibblin, & David Silberman, SMCSO Ed Wood, Jason Peardon, Andrew Armando are all associates.
Don’t forget all five Supervisors of San Mateo County.
Everybody and their mother has known or should have known about this GANG since April 21, 2007. This is Nothing New here, Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case for the last 7.5 years is another perfect example.
Please read the article or watch the video in full.
Your ‘chickens have come home to roost’. This department’s behavior is not only a reflection of Bolanos, who residents have overwhelmingly voted out, but it is also a reflection on each and every one of you. This is the same department that you have empowered and enabled for years.
I have warned you for years about this department’s corrupt and undisciplined behavior. And you stood by and did nothing.
My as to you: Launch an independent and unbiased investigation (made up of people that have no relationship to this department) to identify other corrupt deputies in this department. Initiate an independent investigation into this department’s bias when working with Caucasian and POC residents.Provide a fact-based answer on why minorities (as a percentage of their respective populations) are more likely to get ticketed with the San Mateo Sheriff’s department than their Caucasian counterparts?
The data is there. It needs to be analyzed and reported. Thank you.
It’s no secret that I think he should have been fired right after the Sandra Lee Harmon Execution by San Mateo County Sheriff employees. He was one of the lead obstructionist in getting to the truth about what REALLY happened on the evening of January 5, 2020. I recommended to him that he have the City of Half Moon Bay sue San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, his attorney David Silberman, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, his investigators, Jordan Boyd, John Warren, William Massey, Kevin Raffaelli, and all involved in the Homicide.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. was shot in the back while she had her hands above her head as she was UNARMED. All three of those shots were FATAL. Her body was struck 8 times.
Three spent shell casings were moved at the crime scene. That’s known as Evidence Tampering.
There was no evidence of a shootout.
Bob Nesbit was fine with that. He made ZERO effort in Releasing the Axon Log Records to the Public.
As some of you know San Mateo County News.com has been asking Newly Elected Sheriff Christina Corpus to simply verify her position on releasing the Axon Log Records in the Sandra Lee Harmon Execution by San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on May 5, 202 in the City of Half Moon Bay.
I suggest before you donate any more money to Newly Elected Sheriff Christina Corpus’s Retire the Debt Party, you get Christina to first tell you how much money she is looking for? That’s called Transparency.
A SHERIFF WE CAN TRUST, that has a really nice sound too it doesn’t it.
Transparency is one of my core values, and I would have publicly released the Axon log records in the Sandra Harmon case if I was Sheriff.
The Question is will you release the Axon Log Records in the Sandra Lee Harmon case the first day you are in office. This is the last time San Mateo County News.com will be asking you this question. You have until 5:00 PM Friday July 15, 2022 to answer this simple question. The public has a right to know. You may answer here as a comment, or better yet make a public statement to all of the Newspapers in SMC. I you do not answer the question I will consider that to be the answer, remember when Don Horsley told all of the voters if elected he would NOT receive or accept the normal salary. I helped him keep his Campaign promise.
An 11 year old could figure out Who in San Mateo County is Responsible for the PPE Scandal at the San Mateo County Event Center.
It’s San Mateo County Executive Officer Mike Callagy.
Supervisor David Canepa who is also a Candidate for Congress who has been spending a lot of his time and SMC Taxpayer Money on fundraising and standing on corners promoting himself for Congress.
The Palo Alto Daily Post recently published this:
Then, earlier this year, there was the scandal over the $10 million in personal protective equipment, or PPE, that was left outside in the rain at the county Event Center. The coverup was worse than the crime. The county tried to mislead people about the dollar amount of the PPE damaged and failed to identify who was responsible for this fiasco.
The Palo Alto Daily Post knows who is responsible. All of the Candidates for Supervisor knew who is responsible. Only one Candidate for Supervisor told me that Mike Callagy should be fired.
That Candidate for District 2 Supervisor of San Mateo County was Mr. Cameron Rolfe.
The 760,000 residents of San Mateo County might have first starting hearing about the more than $10M of PPE and the Convoy of Garbage Trucks filled with PPE leaving the San Mateo County Event Center in November or December of 2021. The Breaking News Story was brought to you by ABC7 News Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes on January 13, 2022 it aired at 6:12 PM.
The simple question I have had since first hearing about this PPE Scandal is, How is Mike Callagy still employed by the FIVE Supervisors of San Mateo County. Why was he not placed on Administrative Leave on January 13, 2022?
Notice the DATE of this e-mail, it is BEFORE Mike Callagy had any knowledge according to what he told Dan Noyes.

Subject: Re: PPE loss documentation
Peggy yes you are correct as that is the approach | was going to take on the purchase. | think Dana and her staff will start the clean up tomorrow as it appears it is all individually packaged. It will need to be wiped down, but every package | opened was dry on the inside. The process of getting it indoors will take through Friday. There is a ton there. It would be great if we got a definitive answer from the VA on their desire to take lots of the PPE. Almost all of the gowns expire May 2, 2022. The approach I’m taking is this is surplus, (goggles, buckets, face shields, odd sized gowns, bleach) not hospital grade that we moved outside as we were trying to give it away. We made a mistake not moving it back inside, but with all that was going on with our focus on boosters and then Omicron and testing, it got lost in the process. We appreciate it being called to our attention and we are looking for a home for the items. Our medical grade gloves, gowns, mask, etc. are secured and occupying almost 7000 sq feet of space. We have distributed a great deal of PPE to local medical facilities (| will need to know where) and have enough PPE to last several years.
This e-mail was sent 14 minutes before the Board of Supervisors Meeting on January 25, 2022. Alex Tourk is the Owner of a Public Relations Firm and his monthly fee has been reported to be $15,000 per month. SMC County Manager Mike Callagy hired him, Did he need the Supervisors permission for that hire, or is he paying for Mr. Tourk’s services out of his own pocket.

I would give Don a heads up just in case they get out of line and he can keep order.
The above e-mail is in response to the below e-mail sent 2 minutes earlier by Michelle Durand. WCM stands for a 501C called the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma, California. The President of WCM is James Brown who is also the CEO of West Coast Security, San Carlos, California.

Good morning all
Just spoke with the WCM president who said ABC7 plans to join the meeting via Zoom bc they received a call from Brent Turner who said he plans to attend and question the decision to work with his organization. In James words, Brent said he wanted to “cause a ruckus.” I told him Brent is not unfamiliar to the Board and staff.
So based on these two e-mails 2 minutes apart we can see the Michelle Durand had a conversation with James Brown the President of Wine Country Marines about ABC7 attending by ZOOM the BOS meeting that starts in 16 minutes. Wouldn’t all Governments want the Public’s Business to be viewed by the Public and wouldn’t they welcome the News Industry and Reporters to attend.
Think about that for a moment, it’s a San Mateo County Government Public Meeting on Zoom.
Who was Alex Tourk concerned about getting out of line?
There was only one Supervisor that even bothered to ask any questions and that was David Canepa. Don Horsley quickly jumped all over him.
At the 330:35 mark Supervisor/Candidate for Congress David Canepa asks this question, “There is some PPE that has gone unaccounted for right? That was a great great question, it’s too bad he didn’t wait for Mike Callagy to answer it. ABC7 Investigative reporter Dans Noyes who broke this story on January 13, 2022 reported a “CONVOY of garbage trucks filled up with brand new PPE” in the previous 2 months that would have been November-December of 2021.
At the 3:33:00 you can hear Don Horsley the President of the Board of Supervisors interrupting Supervisor David Canepa’s question. Did Don think David was getting out of line?
The San Mateo County PPE Scandal continues to grow as is always the case when the simple facts are lied about. It’s always the Coverup that becomes the story.
San Mateo County Government doesn’t want a citizen/resident, or employee asking any pesky questions like, How did you choose the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma California to distribute the more than $10M of PPE on January 25, 2022? How many other 501C’s from San Mateo County did you consider?
On January 14, 2022 I published my first article about the More than $10M of PPE that was left outside unprotected at the San Mateo County Event Center I included a link to ABC7 News I-Team Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes excellent coverage and Breaking Story that included Interviews with Mike Callagy and Supervisor David Canepa who were quick to call this a Mistake. I said “This was not a Mistake”
A reasonable person might ask what would make me say that?
It’s really quite simple, I have been reporting on Organized Crime, Corruption, Money Laundering, Embezzlement in San Mateo County Government and the Courts for 22 years.
Again I say Thank You, Dan Noyes for bringing this very Important story to the San Mateo County Residents.
I was the first reporter to report that San Mateo County Risk Manager Scott Johnson had declared on NOVEMBER 10, 2022 that he had personally inspected the PPE outside the SMCEC and in his opinion it was a TOTAL LOSS. That is 64 days before Mike Callagy and David Canepa said it was a MISTAKE.
September 27, 2021 e-mail informing San Mateo County Government that the PPE is now OUTSIDE. That is 108 days before Mike Callagy and David Canepa said it was a MISTAKE.
From: Steve Perich email@example.com Sent: Monday, September 27, 2021 3:49 PM To: Iliana Rodriguez IRodriguez@smcgov.orgCc: Dana Stoehr firstname.lastname@example.org; Avinesh Pal email@example.com Subject: PPE Update Hi Iliana, As you probably are aware, all PPE has been moved out of Fiesta Hall and is currently stored in a fenced area between Gates 9 & 10. The Red Cross was only able to take the 10 adjustable hospital beds (MASH type). Their storage area was not large enough to accommodate the remaining five bariatric beds nor the five “home style” hospital beds, all of which are in the outdoor storage area. The plan is to move as much as possible into Sequoia Hall after the SaaStr Conference, to protect it from the elements. The would require the County to rent Sequoia Hall as it would be filled with PPE. The following items would be relocated first. If any space remains, we will move the most useful of the remaining into Sequoia. Masks Gloves Beds All remaining FMS items and empty containers Bleach
Please let me know if you are in agreement with the above.
San Mateo County Government Change a few words and problem solved. $10M PPE Scandal
Supervisor and Candidate for Congress David Canepa and Kevin Mullin who is also running for Congress. Take care of San Mateo County Business first.
San Mateo County Executive Officer Mike Callagy works for the 5 Supervisors, he is your at will employee.
San Mateo County News.com has 2 E-mails dated January 11, 2022 that show:
10 San Mateo County Employees who knew about the PPE on January 11, 2022
Roberto Manchia, John Nibbelin, Michael Callagy, Peggy Jensen, Justin Mates, Michelle Durand, Daniel Belville, Iliana Rodriquez, Scott Johnson, Kim-Anh Le
On January 13, 2022 two days later the San Mateo County Government lied to the public telling ABC 7 News Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes the County only learned about it because of Mr. Noyes contacting them.
Here are a couple of changes the Government made the next day January 14, 2022 . Changed the first sentence to remove “the County learned” as to not reinforce the idea we knew nothing . Clarified that the investigation is by an external person . Removed reference to FEMA and changed value to app. $7M
November 10, 2021 San Mateo County Risk Manager Scott Johnson stated in letter he sent to Kim-Anh Le “in my professional opinion, it is a total loss.” he’s talking about the PPE moved outside at the San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021.
Yesterday April 19, 2022 at the Board of Supervisor Meeting Agenda Item 12 was titled Surplus Safety Equipment, This item was put on the Agenda at the request of Supervisor Canepa at the last meeting.
None of the remaining Supervisors had any questions about the Deliberate well planned moving of $10M of PPE purchased with FEMA monies from the secured location at the San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021.
Through Supervisor Canepa’s skilled questioning technique he was able to get answers to these questions.
Possible liability of San Mateo County having to Refund the $10,000,000.00 to the Federal Government.
The monthly expense of $23,000 per month now for the storage of the PPE in 5 locations.
Mike Callagy is thinking of Building a Wharehouse to store the FEMA funded PPE.
The Dr. Jim Lianides/Mike Callagy/Staff and possibly other word crafters “Progress Report” which was supposed to be an “Independent Investigation.”
San Mateo County Executive Mike Callagy said at the 2:58:25 mark “I think there was things in the Report that were Inaccurate that need to be Cleaned Up.” “That those changes did take place.”
That means that That Mike Callagy and his TEAM word crated the Dr. Jim Lianides Report. All FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors were cool with that.
