Congresswoman Jackie Speier is teaming up with Carlos Bolanos. Why? If she is serious about Human Trafficked Sex Slaves/Children as she claims, she would stay clear of him.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

The Gun buy back program is a feel good program financed by the taxpayers. I would rather have that money spent on finding the thief at the Sheriff’s Office.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office still has 2 Stolen M-16’s missing no matter what Supervisor Don Horsley told KPIX 5 reporter Len Ramirez 9/12/2014  “they were used for spare parts.” That was simply a dishonest statement by Don Horsely, not the first.

    Hello Michael,

    It is still under investigation.

    Thank you.

    Detective Rosemerry Blankswade

    Public Information Officer

    San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office

    400 County Center Redwood City, Ca.

    Office: 650-363-4800

    Cell: 650-421-1243

This event so close to the first election of the Sheriff for San Mateo County in 25 years could confuse the residents into thinking Jackie Speier endorses Carlos Bolanos, that would be a bad thing, this event is just 3 days before ballots are mailed out.

It’s time for Honesty in San Mateo County

The San Mateo County Democratic Party, Voted No Endorsement for Sheriff 2018.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

The San Mateo County Democratic Party (also known as the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee, or SMC DCC) held their Endorsement Meeting last night.

“It was a unanimous vote with a couple of abstentions.” “No endorsement passed in a landslide.” said Sabrina Brennan

This is a big deal for San Mateo County Voters who have not had a say in who their Sheriff is in the last 25 years. The Supervisors have made sure of that in the past and most recently when Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum and Adrienne Tissier Illegally Appointed Carlos Bolanos Sheriff July 12, 2016. This is a contested election between San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville and Carlos Bolanos. Voters can vote as early as May 8th with mail-in ballots and the official election date is June 5, 2018.

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.

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo Endorses Don Horsley for Supervisor. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

The Congresswoman has personal knowledge that Sheriff Don Horsley lied under oath August 2, 2004 and Ignored her warning to him on July 12, 2016 to open the appoint process to fill the Sheriff position. Why on earth would she endorse him?

Our Elected Officials should be endorsing Honest people.

In 2004 she was on a Congressional Hearing in San Mateo where I Michael Stogner asked her to ask my Sheriff Don Horsley if all explosives stolen were recovered. The ATF agent on pg. 39-40 had just testified under oath that 30-35lbs of C-4 had been stolen. Sheriff Don Horsley testified under oath that 10lbs of C-4 was recovered pg.76. The Congresswomen looked at me in the audience as I shrugged my shoulders to imply How can he say 10lbs of C-4 when just minutes before the ATF agent said 30-35lbs of C-4. So on pg. 109 she asks my question again, and again.

July 12, 2016 BOS Meeting Agenda Item 7

Supervisor Don Horsley led the Illegal Violent Coup which appointed Carlos Bolanos to Sheriff when he had not applied to be appointed, as a matter of fact nobody had applied because the Supervisors had not opened the application process. Congresswoman had her letter to the BOS read at the beginning of Item 7 where she warned the Supervisors not to appoint Carlos Bolanos without the appointment process.

Text of the letter by Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, and Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo:

July 12, 2016

The Honorable Warren Slocum, President

San Mateo County Board of Supervisors

County Center

Redwood City, CA 94063

Dear President Slocum and Members of the Board:

We are unaccustomed to weighing in on County matters outside of measures and initiatives or local policy discussions, such as the recent ones about housing or sea level rise, that involve broad federal and local policies. Many of you, from time to time, have asked us to join you in support of these and other public policy efforts.

Some of you, independent of each other, have also recently asked us to comment on the decision before you today—whether to appoint or to call for an election in the matter of a replacement for the Sheriff. For a long period of time, there have been rumors that Sheriff Munks would retire early and pave the way for the Undersheriff to take this position. Whether these rumors are true or not, this has been a perception. We believe that our mutual constituents support a decision making process that is absent a perception of a pre-ordained outcome.

The office of the Sheriff is a critically important job, as we all know. We know that you share our belief that the public has a right to be heard. The question is whether an election within such a short time frame, and with one announced candidate — the Undersheriff who has been working for more than a year to become Sheriff, would allow for an even playing field on which to compete. We are not sure.

We do know that there are members of law enforcement who would be willing to compete for an appointment but who feel severely disadvantaged to compete in an election under the present circumstances. We therefore believe an appointment process should be undertaken which allows for candidates to openly apply and to be reviewed. This seems especially important in light of the recent public concerns about policing practices throughout the country.

We believe that a way to build public confidence would be for the Board to conduct an open and transparent search for a successor. We also realize that the timeframe for appointment is very short and would require you to either extend it (which may not be allowed under the charter) or to add additional board meetings to your schedule in the next month so that the public is able to participate through those meetings and perhaps, if permissible, the selection process itself.

We realize that selection of the Sheriff is customarily made by voters and have for decades always supported this process. In this instance, the voters themselves may best be served by a method that increases competition for the position and that creates a zone of evaluation that is informed by rigorous, public analysis of multiple persons.

As we all seek to increase the confidence of the public in the administration of justice, we also seek ways to demonstrate to the public that its interests are at the heart of our decisions. Inviting applications, establishing a public interview and discussion with applicants, and assuring the public of a transparent selection process will, in our judgment, help to increase confidence in the administration of justice in San Mateo County.

All the best,

Jackie Speier Anna G. Eshoo

Questions for Carlos Bolanos Candidate for Sheriff 2018.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah NavratilCarlosG.Bolanos

 

It’s been 11 years next month that San Mateo County residents first heard the Lies and Coverup about our Sheriff and Undersheriff, No mention of all the other Officers involved in the coverup. Their reward was promotions and pensions at the Taxpayers Expense.

April 21, 2007 FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse involving Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a child you were caught inside 3474 Eldon St. Las Vegas Nevada at 9:30PM.

What time were you finally released?

Were you brought out of the residence handcuffed and placed in a lineup. This must be what Supervisor Don Horsley is thinking about when he tells people that “Carlos was outside the house.”

Did you honestly identify yourself to law enforcement when you were first asked for id? 

Were you in possession of a California Department of Motor Vehicles Indentification card or License with a different name and your picture?

Were you transported to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department?

Were you taken downstairs?

What time did law enforcement find out that you were the Undersheriff of San Mateo County, California?

What role if any did SMCSO Officers Jeff Kearnan & Tom Gallagher play in assisting your release? Did they show up at the LVMPD facility to get you out?

Have you ever threatened any San Mateo County Sheriff Officer if they spoke about Operation Doll House?

Did Ed Wood hire both of your children?

Was Ed Wood on Administrative Leave from 911 Communications for an alleged Sexual Harassment claim when you created the 3rd Assistant Sheriff Position and hired him?

What were your thoughts about elected official Matt Grocott asking you to reject the BOS appointment of you to Sheriff?

January 2011 Did you Obstruct Justice by leaving your personal residence and interfere with a San Mateo County Sheriff Office Investigation of a Bar Fight involving your son at the Pioneer Bar and Hotel in Woodside, California? You later told a reporter for the Palo Alto Daily Post that your son was a Victim. How would you know you weren’t there? Your son was a new hire with Mt. View Police at that time. PADP by Ryan Thomas Riddle article Feb. 2, 2011
