If You think the Nanny Camera in Bedroom #2 was Important Evidence? Sign the Petition

By Michael G. Stogner

Can you imagine the pain and suffering Munir Edais’ family would have avoided if Daly City Police Officer Lorena Reyes #2135 had simply taken the Nanny Camera into Evidence on the morning of January 21, 2020. They would not have had to file a lawsuit against San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucralt for the documents he has in his possession, the same documents he ignored the family’s CPRA request. This has been going on for 28 months.

The new wife said he Hung Himself, DCPD said He Hung Himself, The Coroner said He Hung Himself.

What did the EVIDENCE show happened?

Let’s help this family get the answers they deserve.

Almost every Elected Official and Candidate in San Mateo County Refuse to sign. WHY?

San Mateo County Residents, I invite you to sign this Petition. Munir Edais was a Police Officer.

By Michael G. Stogner

How did San Mateo County Residents not know about this!

This is Breaking News, San Mateo County News.com is first to report about this Very Suspicious Death of a 32 year old father of two girls who was a Daly City resident and a Police Officer for Los Gatos/Monte Sereno. For some unknown reason the 7 Print Media didn’t think the 760,000 residents would want to know about this. Nothing to see here.

Look at the date we are talking about, January 2020 that is 28 months ago.

Wake up San Mateo County

Here is the Petition

San Mateo County, Convoy of Recology Trucks, PPE and James Brown.

By Michael G. Stogner

It’s the Supervisors, replace them with Good Humans and Problem is SOLVED.

Candidate for Congress and former President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa asked his Prepared questions of SMC County Manager Mike Callagy about the Convoy of Recology Garbage Trucks full of PPE reported by ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes on January 13, 2022 6:12PM.

The Convoy of Recology Trucks full of PPE reportedly happened in the two previous months which would mean sometime in November or December of 2021.

Can you imagine David Canepa as your Congressman, if so Vote for him.

He does NOT ask Mike Callagy who/what human gave James Brown the President of Wine Country Marines a 501-C the PPE on or Before January 13, 2022 6:00 PM. He also does not mention the CONVOY of Recology Trucks? How many trucks are in a CONVOY.

Supervisor David Canepa doesn’t even take care of San Mateo County business which he is RESPONSIBLE for, yet he running for Congress this next election.

SMC BOS MEETING January 25, 2022 Item 12, 3:23:08

Candidate for Congress David Canepa is talking about the CONVOY of TRUCKS, you would NEVER know it. 3:29:00 Mark to 3:31:45 Mark.

At the 3:34:36 Mark is my favorite David Canepa quote: “I don’t think it’s a San Mateo County Issue.”

David Canepa is NO Katherine Moore Porter[3] (born January 3, 1974) is an American politician, law professor, and lawyer who is the U.S. representative from California’s 45th congressional district since 2019.

San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management DEM and Wine Country Marines.

By Michael G. Stogner

On January 13, 2022 at 6:00PM James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines posted this on the WCM Facebook page.

Large Donation of PPE

Updated: 7d

The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated thru the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

Wine Country Marines will distribute these to organizations in need by appointment only. Date and time slots confirmed upon verification of organization/recipient.

This generous donation consists of surgical gowns that conform to YY/T0506.2-2016 industry standards, head to toe white isolation suits with anti-static properties, blue dental style isolation gowns, vented goggles, face shields also with anti-static properties, 1 gallon bottles of bleach, commercial mop buckets, and mop handles.

The isolation gowns are great for any organization or non-profit that serves at risk community members such as homeless, ill, or others such as patients receiving booster or vaccination shots or applying for benefits or services.

The surgical gowns are great for any organization or non-profit that performs medical services where bodily fluids are collected or exposed.

The goggles provide complete protection of the eye, and are vented to prevent fogging.

The mops, mop buckets and bleach require no explanation, but are shown in the photos below for reference.

If your organization would like some of these products to aid in your mission to serve the community, please RSVP at the following link:

San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocum are responsible for the Oversight of San Mateo County. They are not curious as to the name of the person at San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management who graciously donated thru the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

It’s been 26 Days since ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes broke the story about the MORE than $10,000,000.00 of PPE left unprotected outside the San Mateo County Event Center. Note: January 13, 2022 @ 6:12 PM the story was on the air. That’s 12 minutes after James Brown FB post.

Who had the authority to give James Brown the PPE? At this moment 26 days later that person has not been identified by the Government. Why?

First lets look at the Department of Emergency Management, I did find it at the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. This is the same Sheriff’s Office that recently Investigated itself for the Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering criminal Investigation with the A.G. Office.

SMC Sheriff Lt. John Kovach was in charge of the Homeland Security Division until he suddenly retired in January 2022. I’ve asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos what was his last day on the job. no response.

SMCSO Homeland Security Divison

SMCSO Department of Emergency Management

This might be a good time for the Board of Supervisors to put this back on the Agenda and invite Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Lt. John Kovach, Captain Christina Corpus, James Brown, and Mike Callagy to attend and answer the simple question, WHO gave James Brown the PPE on or before January 13, 2022.

Also for those who don’t know ret. Sheriff Lt. John Kovach and Sheriff Captain Christina Corpus are Husband and Wife.

Question for San Mateo County Supervisors

By Michael G. Stogner

Why wasn’t San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy placed on Administrative Leave January 13, 2022?

January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes was reporting on MORE than $10M of PPE outside and unprotected from the elements and theft. He reported a Convoy of Garbage Trucks removing PPE within the last 2 months from the site. Here are some questions he asked Mike Callagy on January 13, 2022.

Mike Callagy is San Mateo County Manager.

DAN NOYES: “Can you give me an idea of the amount of money we’re talking?”

MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. There’s a lot of PPE out there.”

DAN NOYES: “Is it safe to say over a million?”

MIKE CALLAGY: “I would say, oh yeah, I would say over, over a million.”

DAN NOYES: “Is it multiple millions or-“

MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. But it’s, it’s, it’s, there’s a lot of PPE out there.”

Feds launch Investigation into SMC PPE.

By Michael G. Stogner

I’ll bet the 5 San Mateo County Supervisors wished they had asked at least one adult question of County Manager Mike Callagy on January 25, 2022 BOS Meeting Agenda Item 12.

San Mateo County should be thanking ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes for staying on this VERY IMPORTANT story.

Here is his January 27, 2022 Update

SMC $10M + PPE Investigator is Dr. Jim Lianides

By Michael G. Stogner

Whenever Government gets caught it’s not uncommon to immediately launch an Investigation to assure the Taxpayers, that this was a Mistake, We don’t know how it happened, and we will Investigate Ourselves and produce a report in the future to make sure nobody is held responsible.

A suggestion for Dr. Jim Lianides, is to ask San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy,

“Did you order the PPE moved outside the building at San Mateo County Event Center?”

Question for Dana Stoehr “Who ordered the PPE moved outside the building?”

These two questions should take about 4 minutes to ask and get responses.

That is really the question San Mateo County Residents want answered.

I received the e-mail below yesterday at 10:39 AM from Mike Callagy

Good morning Mr. Stogner,

On January 20, 2022, the County hired Dr. Jim Lianides to conduct the investigation. The County was searching for a neutral and experienced person who has run a government organization at the highest level and who understands government finance, purchasing, internal controls, employment and systems. Mr. Lianides has over 40 years of public sector experience, most recently as the (ret.) Superintendent of the Sequoia Union High School District. 

The scope of the investigation is to review the County’s existing practices and what transpired with respect to the handling, tracking and safeguarding of the equipment; to research best practices for government agency handling, tracking and safeguarding of similar equipment, particularly in a contingency setting; and to make recommendations for handling, tracking and safeguarding of such equipment in the future.

Best regards,

Mike

You’ll see from the description above the SCOPE of this work does not include Who Ordered it OUTSIDE. Also NO MENTION of the CONVOY of Recology Garbage Trucks and PPE in the last 2 months. Source Dan Noyes ABC 7

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez.

By Michael G. Stogner

acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.”

Judge Vince Chhabria saw what everybody who watched the video saw. Good for Sarah Gatliff

January 19, 2022, Judge Vince Chhabria wrote that it was plausible to believe Deputy David Dominguez, one of two officers to shoot the 56-year-old woman suffering from mental health issues, acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.” The judge noted that video evidence established that Dominguez shot Harmon in the back, while her hands were raised over her head, and that that shot was fatal.

Take a wild guess who else knows/knew that? You can start with the Supervisors of San Mateo County.

Every resident of San Mateo County should know who Sarah Gatliff is and support her in going ALL the way to a Jury Trial, no settlements. The Public has a right to know what really happened to her mother Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.

For example SMCSO Deputy David Dominguez FIRED THREE SHOTS FIRST.

Next Court Date is February 9, 2022 1:00 P.M.

San Mateo County Supervisors Never asked about Money Laundering. $10M wet PPE

By Michael G. Stogner

Yesterday January 25, 2022 at the regular Board of Supervisors Meeting Agenda Item 12 was passed with flying colors as expected.

What was the exact amount of Taxpayer Money Invested in the more than $10,000,000.00 of PPE that ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes first reported about on January 13, 2022.

It’s one thing for San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy to NOT KNOW that amount on the 13th. It’s another thing to still NOT KNOW IT 15 days later when he is reporting to his Bosses.

Mike Callagy is an At Will Employee of the Supervisors, His work product is an exact reflection of THEM.

The Supervisors never asked Mr. Callagy:

Did you order the PPE boxes to be moved outside the SMC Event Center building? Yes or No

What is the name of the Investigator you hired? What date did you hire him/her?

The Supervisors never asked James Brown of the Wine Country Marines and CEO of West Coast Solutions Inc. of San Carlos to attend and speak at the meeting. They never asked him to explain his Facebook page posted on January 13, 2022 6:00PM declaring the Generous Donation of PPE from SMC. He also told Dan Noyes: “We don’t want anybody to take this and put it on eBay because that’s in essence money laundering, you’re taking federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions and you’re turning it into cash for you,” Brown said, continuing, “We’re not going to allow that.

The Wine Country Marines will proceed in the distribution of the $10M of PPE starting Thursday January 27, 2022. Some 90 unnamed groups have contacted WCM so far. Every single person or group that receives this PPE should either live or work in San Mateo County.

There is ZERO oversight of this giveaway.

Welcome to San Mateo County
