Who ordered San Mateo County Event Center CEO Dana Stoehr to move the more than $10,000,000.00 of PPE from inside a building to outside?
DANA STOEHR: “It’s, it was fully taken care of exactly the way it should have been.”
On January 13, 2022 San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy told ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes
He didn’t know all that PPE was sitting out, exposed to the elements for months.
“It clearly is a mistake by the county and ultimately, I’m responsible for the county. So, you know, I take full responsibility for it, San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy said.
Callagy says he learned Friday that event center staff moved all that PPE outside to accommodate the Software as a Service annual conference September 27-29. He doesn’t know why the supplies were not moved back inside, but he is hiring an independent investigator to look into it and calling in the Marines. Why would anybody call in the Marines?
If Mike Callagy didn’t order it moved outside, Who DID? That is the question that needs to be answered.
Mike Callagy is not only San Mateo County Manager, he is also San Mateo County Purchasing Agent, as well as the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors which has prepared the Agenda Item 12 on January 25, 2022. That seems like a Conflict of Interest.
The BOS should ask Dana Stoehr who ordered the PPE moved in the first place. Simple question and good place to start. Also they could invite James Brown of the West Coast Solution Inc. of San Carlos and President of the Wine Country Marines to attend the Zoom Meeting tomorrow. That would answer some other simple questions, regarding the Generous Donations that WCM already received from SMCDEM.
