Some Reasons San Mateo County Most Corrupt in the State of California.

Micheal G. Stogner video 2012

This current election for Sheriff is a perfect example Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos (July 12, 2016) filed his political papers with San Mateo County Elections Office, Statement of Organization on November 18, 2015 about a week before Sheriff Greg Munks announced that he would not be running for re-election in three years and he endorses Carlos Bolanos. That looks like at least those two conspired to have Carlos Bolanos be the next Sheriff of San Mateo County. It accomplished two things, it made Mr. Bolanos the longest running candidate in San Mateo County’s history. It also put all Sheriff Deputies on notice, if you want to succeed in your career you had better support Bolanos. Former brave Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ran as a Write In candidate for Sheriff in 2014. He missed the filing deadline by 4-6 minutes and Mark Church would  not allow his name to be on the ballot. He choose to be a Write In candidate for Sheriff a very costly decision. He was investigated by the Sheriff’s Office, The District Attorney’s Office, and even David Silberman of the County Counsel Office helped. Juan Lopez was arrested twice once with guns to his head in his front yard in front of his children. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conference for TV media and announced to the world that Juan Lopez smuggled a cell phone and drugs to an inmate, and not just any inmate he was a gang member. After more than 3 years in the Court System and $120,000 legal fees spent, the Judge threw out those charges. The reason was Prosecutorial Misconduct it turns out both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office knew there was ZERO evidence that connected Juan P. Lopez to the cell phone and drugs. That didn’t seem to matter to Carlos Bolanos or Steve Wagstaffe. Think about “Those Who Matter.”

Those Who Matter: People who control investigations, who to investigate, who not to investigate, edit reports, submit recommendations to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution, filing charges with the Court when you know they are false. Lying to a Judge and submitting a false affidavit, That is a Criminal Act.

Here we are approaching 4 years in the legal system and this finally gets filed.

Detective Armando Perjuriously Alleged that Mr. Lopez Placed a Telephone Call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.

He made the phone calls himself.

San Mateo Daily Journal Jon Mays refuses to produce “Later Reports Indicated” he declared in Bolanos Endorsement.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.

Munks maintained that he made a mistake and that he thought it was a legitimate business that provided massage and apologized publicly for his lack of judgment. Bolanos said he was never inside the building.

 

Every description of the location reveals a horrid situation. It was clearly a brothel, in decrepit condition, and had prostitutes there from other countries. An FBI report on the investigation provided to the Daily Journal reveals there was likely a juvenile involved.

 Clearly, there was a significant lapse of judgment in both Bolanos and Munks being at the location, with Munks inside during the raid. This was a big mistake.

Munks is not running for election. Bolanos is. Anyone who believes that the decision to be at the location, albeit outside, is reason enough to not vote for Bolanos is justified. If anyone chooses not to believe Bolanos, they too are justified.

Bolanos said he was never inside the building. We believe him. We also believe there was a lapse of judgment in agreeing to go with Munks to that location. However, voters face a choice in this election as to who they want to run the Sheriff’s Office and we must weigh all the facts and qualifications to determine our recommendation as to who would do that most effectively.

Running against Bolanos is Mark Melville, a deputy within the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office who has had a long, varied and itinerant career in both law enforcement and city management. He has been city manager of two tiny Central Valley cities — Gustine and Livingston, the latter of which has a current population of 13,000. While Melville has strong positions on what is wrong with the Sheriff’s Office — too much overtime, poor morale — he has very few solid suggestions aside from a full review of every division and to redefine the training and hiring process. While both can yield some positive results, it does not seem to be enough of a solid plan. Melville said he decided to run because he felt voters deserved a choice, and that is to be commended. He also has the requisite experience on paper, but has not managed an organization even close to the size of the Sheriff’s Office. Bolanos currently oversees 800 employees and a $250 million budget — the approximate equivalent of a 100,000 population city.

Bolanos has also proved to be adept at contending with the budget, though the office is currently contending with an understaffing issue similar to many other organizations in this high-cost area. Bolanos is currently mandating one weekly shift of overtime per worker deputy, which is not a long-term solution but reasonable in the short term, while also keeping under budget. This is a skill learned over time managing a large organization both in the Sheriff’s Office as appointed sheriff and undersheriff and as Redwood City police chief before that.

Bolanos has also emphasized the need for crisis intervention training for patrol, rebuilt the firing range at no cost to the county, and expanded the Sheriff’s Activities League. SAL has proven to be effective in not only keeping youth out of trouble after school but also establishing a connection between them and the deputies serving the communities. It has been particularly effective in the North Fair Oaks community, known for its working class Latino families.

Bolanos has also been a strong advocate for maintaining strong ties to the Latino community in light of concern about the current presidential administration’s policy shift when it comes to immigration and California’s Senate Bill 54. Not only has the Sheriff’s Office provided bridge outreach for immigrants to services but Bolanos has spent countless hours since the 2016 presidential election ameliorating concerns about the office’s policy on how it contends with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests. Bolanos said he maintains the policy that the Sheriff’s Office will not hold inmates after release for ICE agents and actually supported SB 54 as modifications were made in the legislation’s later stages to define the violent and dangerous felonies that would call for ICE contact. Bolanos also uses public safety as a guiding principal and believes the more comfort the populace feels in reporting crimes, the better the overall community is in being safe.

While an organization such as the Sheriff’s Office can always use improvement, we do not believe it would benefit from Melville taking the reins. We do think Melville has brought up some interesting points and Bolanos would benefit from heeding them as he begins his first official term.

And while the incident in Nevada will forever be a mark against the office, Bolanos has proven to be a serious, stable and effective manager when it comes to its primary mission — ensuring the safety of the community. Of the two candidates running, he deserves your vote.

This is my second request of Mr. Mays.

Hello Jon,
Can you please produce the “later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.” that your paper used to promote this story.
 
I can tell you I have assisted more than 10 civilians over the last 11 years on this topic and your endorsement was the first any of us have heard that description. I’m aware that Don Horsley recently made a similar statement to a political person. I told him/her it was completely false. I’m waiting to see what your source is.
 
Thank You

Hello Jon,
In your Endorsement of Carlos Bolanos you state “Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.” Could you pease identify these reports by date and author. To my knowledge LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes have never changed their statements placing Bolanos inside.
Thank You
Michael
I am not the only person asking the San Mateo Daily Journal to show the 83,500 daily readers their source for this declaration “later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.”

    In the News and Information Business mistakes are made and a public correction is made. It’s one thing to get something wrong, It’s another to promote a lie.
    Is the San Mateo Daily Journal being a good neighbor, a good citizen?
    Please join us in encouraging Jon Mays to identify and produce the “later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.”
    This is not about prostitution, its Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children, Carlos Bolanos was detained as a Customer. It’s that simple.

Sabrina Brennan’s Terri Miller Quote. The 15 year old trafficked minor was “terrified.”

The subject matter is Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including Children, and Carlos Bolanos.

I have said that Sabrina Brennan’s Endorsement is more valuable than two Congresswomen in the past. The reason I say this is simple She is honest she represents the average resident/citizen living in San Mateo County wether they voted for her or not.

San Mateo County Harbor Commissioner Sabrina Brennan calls B.S. on San Mateo Daily Journal’s Endorsement of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Sabrina Brennan is right again. This is why she received over 156,000 votes.

This is just another example of an elected official doing what is best for the average person living in San Mateo County. Sabrina and a couple of other elected officials are the only ones who consistently represent the residents and citizens interest.

Sabrina Brennan

I’m calling BS on this endorsment.

On April 24, 2007, the Daily Journal published a story titled ‘Sheriff apologizes for detainment during prostitution sting.’ The article states the following: “Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences at the brothel.

Update: The SMDJ has refused to identify the “Later Reports”. “Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.” That is total B.S.

Shame on you, San Mateo Daily Journal

Note: The San Mateo Daily Journal reaches 83,500 per day.

Editor,

I’m astounded to read that the Daily Journal is endorsing Carlos Bolanos for sheriff (“Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff” in the April 13 edition of the Daily Journal). Are you going to endorse a man that was at the scene of an illegal brothel as a private citizen where FBI sting “Operation Dollhouse” goes down and he says he’s not inside?

Your endorsement article states: “Clearly, there was a significant lapse of judgment.” And somehow you still feel as if you can trust this man’s leadership? Thank you for bringing this issue to light. I was astounded back in 2007 when this incident happened with no repercussions for then-sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos.

Let’s all think about that. The top two law enforcement officials in San Mateo County were both at a private residence outside Las Vegas as private citizens when the “Operation Dollhouse” sting goes down and where federal agents seized 3,500 tablets of ecstasy and $20,000 in cash during the raids. Additionally, seven people were arrested for allegedly operating the brothels, and 25 prostitutes were taken into custody.

And these men are there, why? They didn’t know it was a brothel? Are you kidding me?

I’ve heard of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but sometimes you put yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is the man the Board of Supervisors feels is worthy of being the top law enforcement official in the county? Am I missing something here? I’m sorry, but my vote is going to Mark Melville.

Melville has a proven track record and I don’t see any “significant lapse of judgment” in his past. We need a sheriff we can feel confident in their leadership abilities, follows the rule of law and, most importantly, someone we can trust.

San Mateo County’s Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos finally answers questions, or does he?

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

 
CarlosG.Bolanos

The story promoted by Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos in April 2007 at a Press Conference where No Questions were allowed. They were briefly detained = handcuffed and released. It sounded like a Sportsman Fishing Show where they catch and release the little fish. If that were the truth, why would Carlos Bolanos refuse to answer any questions regarding the Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including children in the single family residence he was caught inside of, according to Las Vegas Metro Police Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes quotes in different news articles.

Now Candidate Carlos Bolanos has had 11 years to prepare for the residents to ask some questions that reporters have refused to ask. In Pacifica at Sharp Park Golf Course he was asked one question about Operation Dollhouse and he answered that this was not the proper place to discuss that subject or something close to that.

The Almanac Reporter Dave Boyce asked a question of Candidate Carlos Bolanos about Operation Dollhouse, and he refused to answer the question.

https://www.almanacnews.com/square/2018/03/29/deputy-looking-at-a-steep-climb-in-running-for-sheriff

Half Moon Bay Review Reporter Carina Woudenberg asked a question of Candidate Carlos Bolanos about Operation Dollhouse. Instead of answering the question he relies on the false story promoted by the Sheriff from 11 years ago. “I don’t know that there is much to say about nothing that happened 11 years ago.”

That is the third time Carlos Bolanos has refused to answer a simple question that the residents have a right to know the truth about that night of April 21, 2007.

Candidate for Sheriff 2018 Mark Melville said in that same article:

“He actually lied about where he was.” “They found him inside the house.”

We think that should have been the Headline of the HMBR article.

This post might shed light on why Carlos Bolanos refuses to answer any questions about April 21, 2007. It is on the HMBR.

Here is what you don’t know.

There were four people in the limo that Munks and Bolanos took to the brothel at 3474 Eldon Street. Two of those Deputies went from Sergeant to Assistant Sheriff in a span of just a few years before retiring out. Their pay went from ~$130,000 to $220,000 per year in that short span of time.

Why did that limo become the most effective promotion tool in the history of the SMCSO?

Because not only was Munks in the bedroom and Bolanos near the front door when the raid happened, after being placed in handcuffs they both provided a fake ID to the LVMPD. When LVMPD could not identify them they took them downtown to holding.

While that was happening the other two Deputies who escaped the raid and one other female Lieutenant went to the Mandalay Bay to get Munk’s and Bolanos’s real ID before going to the station to bail them out. (Yes, we (and they) know who they are, just not saying here…)

Presenting a false ID in Nevada is a Class E Felony. When Munks and Bolanos provided a false ID hoping they would be let go they broke the law. They committed a felony. They were taken downtown, unlike the others caught in the sting, because no one knew who they were and their ID came back zero.

Conspiring to conceal a crime is a crime in California. Even a crime in Nevada. A crime everywhere.

Now you know why those two deputies in the limo and the Lt. who went to bail out Munks and Bolanos rocketed through the leadership structure of the SO until they retired after being third in command.

It’s the crime and the cover-up that should make any of the four horsemen and Bolanos ineligible to be a Sheriff or Deputy. If the County was less corrupt this would have been properly handled ten years ago. Instead County leaders, Including the DA and Sup Horsley looked the other way. They had to have heard the rumors, even if they didn’t know the details.

It is past time to stop looking the other way.

Hey reporter’s!! Ask why they used forged ID and what they did after that. Ask who knew about the concealing of the use of fake IDs and the following trip to the holding tank. Ask Karen Hughes for the details!!

If you want proof of the promotion chain look at the employment history and compensation for recent Assistant Sheriff’s and work backwards.

And look at the top right now. One of the five (“The Dish”) is sitting there in plain view.

She knows everything.
