San Mateo County PPE Scandal.

By Michael G. Stogner

The Five Supervisors of San Mateo County don’t want the residents/voters to know the Truth about the More than $10M of PPE purchased with Federal Grants FEMA according to James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma.

On January 13, 2022 Mike Callagy County Manager and Supervisor David Canepa, Candidate for Congress, both high ranking San Mateo County Government Officials told ABC 7 News Investigative Reporter/Journalist Dan Noyes who broke the story that they didn’t know anything about the More than $10,000,000.00 of PPE that was moved out of the SMC Event Center. They both were QUICK to identify this as a MISTAKE, and they had NO Idea how this happened, “They were calling in the Marines” and an Independent Investigation was going to be ordered to make sure this never happened again. Notice the Investigation was not meant to identify How many San Mateo County Employees knew about this and for how long.

Here is one of Mike Callagy’s employees who knew in September: Iliana Rodriguez,

I offer these 2 e-mails as a start, this is getting close to answer the question, Who Ordered the More than $10M of PPE to be moved from the secure and protected building at San Mateo County Event Center in September 2021?

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.

Thanks, Steve

Next day September 28, 2022 e-mail confirms 5 people knew about it

Mr. Stogner, 

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines that predates the January 27, 2022 agreement I produced to you.  There was no written agreement prior to January 13, 2022 at 6PM, and there is no separate Financial Agreement.  Because Mr. Brown is not a County employee, I cannot know what he meant in his blog post, but as far as we are aware, he was not referring to a written record.

Thank you,

Caiti

The reason I asked for this document is simple, every time someone gives me more than $10,000,000 of something I like to have some kind written verification, proof, evidence etc that I in fact do have the authority to distribute this PPE which was paid for with FEMA money.

It took San Mateo County Government 90 days to say the truth.

There was no written agreement between the County and Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022.

Alex Tourk, Mike Callagy, Michelle Durand lied about the $10,000,000.00 of PPE. So what?

By Michael G. Stogner

That is not earth shattering News for San Mateo County Residents, SMC has a long History of Sheriff and UnderSheriff lying to the residents in public press releases, April 2007 is just one little example. SMC has Sheriff Sergeants and other Sheriff employees committing Felony crimes PC115(a) and even Perjury in the Courts. The Rachel Amanda Quintana case of Half Moon Bay and SMCSO Sergeant Mike Otte committing Perjury is just one example.

What date and time did San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy hire Alex Tourk for $15,000.00 per month to create and distribute a lie to the 760,000 residents of the County?

Mike Callagy should pay for Alex Tourk’s work out of his own pocket.

ABC7 I-TEAM Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes and James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines both made Public Announcements on January 13, 2022 about the PPE, San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management generous donation of the large amount of PPE that was to be distributed by WCM on January 25, 2022.

Dan Noyes accurately reported on January 13, 2022 that the value was more than $10,000,000.00

Dan Noyes accurately reported on January 30, 2022 the “Blatant Lie” from SMC Government Officials.

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy on January 13, 2022 said “He did not know the value.”

This is where Alex Tourk, Principal of Ground Floor Public Affairs comes in the picture.

Less than 24 hours after SMC Manager Mike Callagy said he didn’t know the value, a PR piece is mass distributed on a bunch of Bot media news sites regurgitating the exact same B.S..

Here is what Alex Tourk, Mike Callagy and Michelle Durand put out to the residents at 3:30PM 1/14/22

“The estimated value of the supplies based on the original purchase prices is $7 million.”

Today’s Google search: Mike Callagy $7M PPE Here are the results of just the 1st page notice the names of these News sites. That is what a PR firm does.

San Mateo County Residents might recall seeing that exact Public Relations Spin in the Hillsborough resident Zain Jaffer Criminal case in October 2017 where he was arrested by the HBPD for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son and 5 other Felony Counts. People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A.

He is the only defendant that I am aware of who had already hired Michael S. Sitrick who the L.A. Times calls “The Wizard of Spin” who had already prepared a Press Release about Zain Jaffer’s case being completely dismissed before anybody knew that District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and DDA Sharon Cho were going to ask a San Mateo County Judge to dismiss ALL of the charges. He (Zain Jaffer) read the prepared press release at court.
