San Mateo County Supervisors finest work....Ordinance No.04430
Original post made by Michael G. Stogner, another community, on May 24, 2010
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, COUNTY OF SAN MATEO,
STATE OF CALIFORNIA
Chapter 2.04.010 Purpose
The County of San Mateo has a paramount interest in protecting the integrity of its governmental institutions, and to ensure that County government serves the best interest of the citizens of San Mateo County. Government Code 25303 provides that the Board of Supervisors shall supervise the official conduct of all county officers, including elected officials, and additionally provides that the Board shall see that county officers faithfully perform their duties.
Its to bad Thomas Casey III didn't know about this GC 25303 when he was San Mateo County's Counsel. For years he advised the Board that they had no authority over our elected officials.
Independent Citizens Review Panel
(b) Panel members shall be chosen at random from a list compiled and maintained by the County Counsel of citizens from among the following categories:
Former County or City Administrators
Former Grand Jury Forepersons
Former County Counsels.........(Thomas Casey III ?)
City Attorneys and or District Attorneys.........(James P. Fox when he retires)
The good news is these Citizens won't have to live in San Mateo County to make decisions about our business, here is a list of the only counties that this small group of people can live in. Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Santa Clara.
Also nothing to fear, this group of Citizens will have a limit scope to investigate.
(e) The manner and scope of the investigation shall be determined by the panel consistent with the directions given by the Board.
I think it is fair to say that this Citizen Review Panel will never be called by the current Board of Supervisors. They all support Sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos being CUSTOMERS of Underaged Human Trafficked Sex Slaves, Operation Dollhouse 4/21/07 Las Vegas Nevada, and willfully making a false official statement 4/24/07. No County Funds were spent. a violation of 2.04.020
