San Mateo Board of Supervisors Called to Act.

Several San Mateo County citizens of note have called for the San Mateo Board of Supervisors to take action in matters related to the conduct of District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Sheriff Greg Munks, and Undersheriff Bolanos.

Mark DePaula and Michael Stogner -- who were both recently candidates for County Supervisor,  and citizen Lamont Phemister have submitted to the Board of Supervisors a request that the Board consider the following:

1) That the Board should call on Sheriff Munks to resign as Sheriff.
2) That Bolanos be dismissed.
3) That DA Wagstaffe make public the report of the investigation into samTrans accounting.
4) That DA Wagstaffe resign.
5) That they call on the FBI to open the Operation Dollhouse report.
6) That they call on the US Department of Justice to investigate samTrans.

This new expression of citizen concern and lack of faith in San Mateo County officials comes on the heels of recent significant citizen concern and press coverage about the revelation that former San Mateo County  prosecutor Alfred Giannini (who was to serve as second chair in the william ayres criminal re-trial before he changed his plea, and was found guilty of 8 counts of child molestation), and who was the subject of a 2011 report on prosecutorial misconduct, is now training discipline prosecutors for the California State Bar.
