IN CASE YOU MISSED THIS:
New Deputy County Manager Appointed: Police Veteran Michael Callagy will Focus on Public Safety
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – San Mateo County Manager John L. Maltbie today announced that he has appointed Michael Callagy, deputy chief of the San Mateo Police Department, as Deputy County Manager.
Callagy will focus on public safety. He will work with the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney, Probation and other departments “to assure maximum effectiveness of County resources and services,” Maltbie said.
“The criminal justice system is undergoing dramatic changes statewide,” Maltbie said, noting that the State has shifted responsibility for supervising additional offenders to counties. “Mike has the experience to ensure that we keep our neighborhoods safe while we also provide the types of programs that are proven to reduce recidivism.”
Callagy will begin November 11. He comes to San Mateo County after rising through the ranks of the San Mateo Police Department to become Deputy Chief.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to work for the San Mateo Police Department for more than 29 years,” Callagy said. “It has been my lifelong passion to work in public service and I have not only had the great fortune to work alongside and collaborate with so many incredibly talented people while working for the community of San Mateo, but will now have the opportunity to do so in the larger community of San Mateo County.”
While with San Mateo, he supervised every unit in the Police Department and has been Deputy Chief for the past seven years. Callagy’s specialty as an officer was narcotics and undercover work.
Callagy has been a leader in higher education as he received his Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Notre Dame de Namur University and a Juris Doctorate degree from Santa Clara University while working as a police officer.
In 2010 he became the first recipient in the County to receive a Master’s Degree in Homeland Security and Defense from the Post-Naval Graduate School in Monterey. He is a member of the California State Bar and a graduate of the FBI National Academy.
Callagy is also active locally and serves on boards of several nonprofit organizations. He and his wife, Lisa, are raising four children on the Peninsula.
“San Mateo County’s gain will definitely be the City of San Mateo’s loss,” said Susan Loftus, San Mateo’s City Manager. “Mike’s exemplary skills, intelligence, principles and leadership have been demonstrated repeatedly throughout his career. He can be proud of the wonderful legacy he is leaving here in San Mateo. He will be greatly missed. Regardless of where he advances in the future, I will always consider him as ‘San Mateo’s own.’”
Deputy County Manager, Callagy’s additional duties will also include:
• Providing executive direction to emergency communications
• Overseeing the construction of a new emergency communications and emergency operations center
• Directing the development of new programs and initiatives
“I am looking forward to working with County Manager John Maltbie and all of the outstanding leaders in the county as we continue to work together to enhance public safety and service,” Callagy said.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara & San Mateo Counties
Who We Are
Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is the trusted leader dedicated to ending local hunger. Since its inception in 1974, Second Harvest has become one of the largest food banks in the nation, providing food to an average of nearly one quarter of a million people each month. The Food Bank mobilizes individuals, companies, and community partners to connect people to the nutritious food they need. Nearly half of the food distributed is fresh produce. Second Harvest also plays a leading role in promoting federal nutrition programs and educating families on how to make healthier food choices.
What We Do
In fiscal year 2013 (July 2012 - June 2013), we distributed nearly 52 million pounds of nutritious food to low-income people in need in every zip code of our service area from Daly City to Gilroy, and from the ocean to the bay.
We provide food efficiently through our innovative direct-service programs (see below) and by collaborating with a network of more than 300 partner non-profit agencies operating at 740 different food distribution sites. Partner agencies include shelters, pantries, soup kitchens, children's programs, senior meal sites, and residential programs.
Throughout the fiscal year, volunteers contributed nearly 310,000 hours of service, which saved us $6.2 million in equivalent personnel costs.
Who We Serve
During the fiscal year, we served an average of more than 253,000 people per month. The majority of people we serve are seniors and low-income families with children.
Food Bank Programs
Second Harvest operates direct service programs for seniors, families with children, and individuals:
· Family Harvest provides monthly food assistance to low-income families with children.
· Brown Bag provides weekly food assistance to low-income seniors.
· Kids NOW (Nutrition on Weekends) provides children ages 6-18 with an assortment of food items to take home every Friday.
· Partners in Need (PIN) provides weekly food assistance to low-income Food Bank volunteers.
· Produce Mobile delivers fresh fruits and vegetables to low-income households with limited access to community markets.
· Mobile Pantry delivers food to geographically-isolated communities and those with limited services.
We also help individuals find food assistance programs, learn about proper nutrition, and gain access to resources available to them:
· Food Connection Hotline connects callers to multilingual operators who refer them to local food assistance programs.
· Nutrition Education provides nutrition, health, and food safety workshops to agencies and clients.
· Food Stamp Outreach helps eligible households apply for food stamps and receive benefits within days.
