This a was a great show about the various things you can do at NYPD and it  seems like the guy loves the department.You have a great radio show and nice website. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Respectfully,

Matthew

Hi Dick: I meant to tell you last week that the interview with Mike was great. WE really enjoyed it.
Just to let you know that Thurs. line up was all messed up, Your show was not aired till 10:00. I had a doctor appointment at 10. Luckily I installed a VLC media player and I was able to record that show and listen to it today.

You always have an entertaining show and really do a great job. Thank You for doing it each week. God Bless and have a great week. Polkatively Yours, Linda and Tom

Hi there Delta - Just wanted to write you a short note thanking you for the shout out on today's radio program! :-) That was quite a surprise and made me smile this morning! :-)

Still listen to your program every Thursday at 8:00am...it is going on 3 years since I first started listening to you...2015...can you believe that...3 years!!!!

Yet-your program is still entertaining as ever-the best, and really enjoy your style! In fact, if you recall you sent me a complimentary copy of your show a while ago, and I listen to the CD from time to time when I need my Delta fix! haha!

"Love the Website.  It's incredible."

"Looked at some of your life time; Great job. You looked like  a person that did his job well. We need good people like that; keep it up and GOD BLESS."
"What a mess, and farce, and taxpayers are footing the bill.  Where is common sense ?"  "I looked at your website – you have quite the story."

"Dick, I don't think people care, plain & simple. The fact they don't "know" is apathy, laziness for many, some are working several jobs, trying to raise a family, and are exhausted."

"How much money did the City of Hamburg waste on attorneys fees related to your website?" (So far; the city has spent, as near as I can calculate, about $33,000.00 !! At the Budget Meeting in September, Hamburg Mayor Richard Malz called for the 2016 budget for legal fees to be INCREASED by an ADDITIONAL $9,000.00; for a total of $15,000.00 for 'legal expenses' in 2016 !!)

"Hello Mr. Odoms, I saw your website in the NYA Times.  Bravo!!!  Who says an “alien implant” (a term I’m using to explain how some of us feel who are not “native born sons”) can’t be heard and can’t have some say?  I’ve heard one disgruntled newcomer to the local area describe it this way:  “You’re a nobody and have no real sense of belonging or feeling welcome unless you have three generations of ancestors buried in the local cemetery.”  The citizens of Hamburg and the surrounding area are very fortunate to have you “telling it like it is”.  Don’t let anyone intimidate you into giving up.  You are a TRUE public servant and so much more!!!  More small towns around here need a Richard Odoms.  Perhaps you will be the “spark” that will spread."

We've All HEARD  About GOVERNMENT TRANSPARANCY But REALLY, What Is It ??

Openness, accountability, and honesty define government transparency. In a free society,  transparency is government's obligation to share information with citizens. It
is at  the heart of how citizens hold their public officials accountable.

Governments exist to serve the people.
My Four Year 'Experience' As A Hamburg City Council Member Really 'Opened My Eyes' As To What Takes Place In A 'Small Town'. I Sincerely Hope That What I Observed Take Place With Our City's Elected (And Other) Officials During My City Council Term Isn't Indicative Of What's Taking
Place In Similar Sized Cities, Towns And Communities  All Across Our Great Country.

President Trump Is 'Spot On'. If What I Experienced And Continue To Observe Taking Place
In The City Of Hamburg, Minnesota Is ANY Indication Of What's Happening
Elsewhere,  Our Country Is Facing A HUGE, Moral Dilemma !!

PLEASE CLICK HERE To Visit A Webpage That I Have Created  About Some
Of What Took Place (And STILL IS Taking Place) In The City Of Hamburg, Minnesota.

Also, On NOVEMBER 7, 2017, I Sent A Three Page Letter To Hamburg Mayor Chris Lund Requesting A WRITTEN Response To Information, Answers, Explanations And Documents I Was Seeking About Some Of The Things That Are Taking Place In OUR City. Please CLICK HERE To Read That Initial Letter To Lund.

Talk About ARROGANCE & IRRESPONSIBILITY;  As Of MAY 20, 2018, Lund Has FAILED TO RESPOND To My  Initial NOVEMBER 7th (CLICK HERE), Lund has ALSO FAILED TO  Responded To A Written 'Follow-Up' Request Letter Sent To Him On  NOVEMBER 14th (CLICK HERE) As Well As To Yet  ANOTHER LETTER Sent To Him On JANUARY 16th !! (PLEASE CLICK HERE.)

The Longer The Release And Availability Of Requested Information To The Public Is Withheld And The More 'Closed' City Council Meetings That Are Conducted, The MORE GUILTY  It Makes EVERYBODY  Involved, Apparently Are.

Where is Lund's ACCOUNTABILITY ?? And His INTEGRITY ?? If Hamburg's TOP ELECTED OFFICIAL Doesn't Have Integrity And Accountability, How Can We Expect 'City Hall Staff' To Have Them ?

The upcoming election in November Will Be Very 'Interesting' To Say The Least !! To regain its integrity, The City of Hamburg NEEDS a through 'housecleaning' in this fall's election; starting with Mayor Chris Lund (because he knew what was taking place and allowed it to continue) as well as City Clerk/Treasurer Jeremy Gruenhagen, because of his knowingly being involved !!

Again; I'm calling on the City of Hamburg Officials to RELEASE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO CITY RESIDENTS:

1) November 5, 2014 Letter To The Hamburg Mayor And  City Council, and
(2) Recording Of The November 2014  "Closed" City Council Meeting, and
(3) Recording Of The September 2015 "Closed" City Council Meeting
For Your Information And What You May Not Know Is That The Hamburg City Council Quietly, And Without 'Fanfare', Recently Voted To CHANGE THE TERM OF HAMBURG MAYOR From TWO Years To FOUR Years  Beginning In 2019!!
"POWER GRAB" ?? I KNOW One When I SEE One !!
(I Think We All Can GUESS WHO Surreptitiously 'Orchestrated' That !!)
AND, WHY WASN'T INFORMATION OF WHAT TAKES PLACE AT PUBLIC HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL  MEETINGS CURRENT AND AVAILABLE  ON THE CITY'S 'OFFICIAL' WEBSITE ??

At the May 14, 2013 Hamburg City Council Meeting, I suggested adding the tape recorded Council meetings to the 'Official' Hamburg Website; the City agreed to do that.

Check out a December 7, 2017 'Screenshot' of the City's 'Official' Website, yourself, and you'll see that there are numerous instances, in just 2017 alone, where recordings of City Council proceedings, as well as 'Minutes' of City Council Meetings, aren't available to the public on the City's Website. One would certainly expect that City Hall Administrative Staff that are paid somewhere around $80-85,000.00 annually could AT LEAST ensure that information about what's taking place in the City is available to City residents !!
WHY IS ACCOUNTABILITY IMPORTANT ??

It is at the local level where citizens and the public sector interact most regularly and directly – be it registering for school, attending a health clinic or applying for social housing. So when corruption occurs locally, the impact on citizens’ lives can be the most damaging, with the poorest being hit the hardest.

When elections are rigged, bribes paid in order to access basic services, and public funds diverted into private hands, the public good comes second; citizens’ interests are harmed and trust in those that govern us is eroded.

At the same time, opportunities for direct civil society engagement and oversight are greatest at the local level, providing an opportunity of strengthening integrity and accountability through civic oversight.

The Hamburg City Council voted, once again, to INCREASE HAMBURG RESIDENT'S PROPERTY TAXES by ANOTHER 5.14% in 2018 !! Total budget amount submitted to Carver County by the City of Hamburg for 2018 was $486,994.00, and INCLUDED yet ANOTHER 2% PAY INCREASE for Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer Jeremy Gruenhagen; someone who ALREADY is pulling in somewhere in the neighborhood of an obscene $80-$85,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS annually in his 'salary & benefits' package.

Any Hamburg residents reading this Webpage (or anybody else) being paid that kind of money with TAXPAYER DOLLARS ?? Only in Hamburg !!

It's no wonder our property taxes are the HIGHEST in ALL of Carver County.

Incidentally, one Hamburg City Council Member voted AGAINST giving Gruenhagen ANY raise whatsoever !! In the eleven years that I've lived in Hamburg, I don't EVER recall an instance where ANY Councilmember voted AGAINST giving Gruenhagen ANY salary increase !! That action was LONG OVERDUE !! And 'sends an important message' to Hamburg Taxpayers and reinforces my assertions previously expressed !!
LOCAL GOVERNMENT 'MIRRORS' THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

On Friday, February 2, 2018, President Trump Ordered The Release & 'Declassification' Of Certain 'Revealing Documents' That Were Used In An Attempt To Discredit Him By Maliciously Alleging That He 'Had Ties' With Russia.

The Intent Of Those False And Fabricated Documents Was A Covert Attempt To Prevent Him From Being Elected President; Partly Because Of His Being So 'Outspoken' Against Government Waste And Inefficiency. You'll Remember During His Presidential Campaign His 'Promise' To 'DRAIN THE SWAMP' Of Government !!

The Release Of These 'Declassified' Documents Debunk The Reckless Allegations Made Against The President. It Also Gives Citizens A Keen Insight As To Just How Far Some Government Officials Will Go To Try And Discredit And Destroy Those Persons Who Expose Wasteful Spending Of Taxpayer Dollars,  'Call Out', And Hold Accountable, Those Officials And Other Taxpayer Paid Employees, Who Exhibit Bad Behavior, Incompetence, Inappropriate Actions And Public Misconduct. EXAMPLE: Hamburg, Minn.

The City Of Hamburg Also Has AT LEAST TWO Similar, Very 'Revealing, Incontrovertible 'Documents' In It's Possession About What's Taken Place In Our City, That Are Being Withheld From City Residents: 1) November 5, 2014 Letter To The Hamburg Mayor And City Council And 2) Recording Of The "Closed" City Council Meeting Held At The End Of September 2015.

Like The Documents Concerning President Trump, These Documents, Too, NEED TO BE RELEASED So City Residents Can Know What's Taken Place With YOUR CITY OFFICIALS !!
(Remember: I SAW & HEARD EVERYTHING THAT TOOK PLACE Because I WAS THERE !!)

Then, And Only Then, Will All Of The Dastardly Deeds Of It's Officials And Everything Else That's Taken Place In The City
That You've All Read About On This Website, Clearly 'Come Into Focus' For Everyone To Know; Hamburg Resident Or Not.

"FORD FIRES EXECUTIVE FOR BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS"

STAR-TRIBUNE Newspaper; Thursday February 22. 2017: "Ford has ousted one of it's top executives over allegations of unspecified inappropriate behavior."

Apparently, 'private' sector employers are much less tolerant of employee misconduct and inappropriate behavior than are their 'government' sector counterparts.
CITY OF HAMBURG:
RELEASE THE DOCUMENTS REFERENCED ABOVE
So City Residents Can KNOW THE TRUTH About
What's Taken Place And How You
WASTED $50,000.00+ TAXPAYER DOLLARS !!

When A City Employee Receives TAXPAYER DOLLARS To Which They Are NOT ENTITLED, An Honorable Person Would RETURN THOSE TAXPAYER DOLLARS That They Shouldn't Have Received In The First Place, TO THE TAXPAYERS !!

Taxpayers Have A RIGHT TO KNOW What Took Place At A 'CLOSED' CITY COUNCIL MEETING Where These Payments Of Taxpayer Dollars Were Discussed, CLEARLY A VIOLATION OF MINNESOTA's 'OPEN MEETING' Law, Instead Of The City 'Covering It Up' Hoping That No One Will Find Out About It !!
Located In Glencoe
DO YOU AGREE ??

If A City Employee Receives TAXPAYER DOLLARS To Which They Are NOT ENTITLED, An Honorable Person Would RETURN THOSE TAXPAYER DOLLARS That They Shouldn't Have Received In The First Place, TO THE TAXPAYERS !!
SKEPTICAL ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU'RE READING ??

As Unbelievable As It May Seem To Be, The Information Contained Herein Is Available Either From Official City Documents, The City
Itself, Via The City Of Hamburg's 'Official' City Website As
Well As From What I Heard, Saw And Observed During My
'Experience' As A Hamburg City Councilmember.

You Just Have To Know What You're Looking For And How & Where To Find It !!

ONCE AGAIN; DO YOU AGREE ??

If Somebody Receives TAXPAYER DOLLARS To Which They Are NOT ENTITLEDAn Honorable Person Would  RETURN THOSE TAXPAYER DOLLARS That They Shouldn't Have Received In The First Place, TO THE TAXPAYERS !!

But What About Hamburg's OTHER Former AND CURRENT Elected (and other) Officials That KNEW/KNOW  WHAT WAS/IS TAKING PLACE, Yet; ALLOW IT TO CONTINUE By REPEATEDLY APPROVING Those IMPROPER PAYMENTS ??

Is There ANY Question Left In ANYBODY'S Mind Why Hamburg City Officials Attempted To (Unsuccessfully) FORCE Me Off Of The Hamburg City Council ??

I KNEW What Was Taking Place But I Was Powerless To Do Anything About It. Until Now.

The year 2016 was a record year for opioid-related deaths in Hennepin County. We experienced 153 opioid-related deaths - a 39% increase over 2015. The State of Minnesota experienced 402 opioid-related deaths during 2016.

For this reason, Sheriff Rich Stanek and the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office launched a drug abuse prevention campaign called #NOverdose.  As part of the campaign, the Sheriff’s Office has partnered with school-parent organizations, law enforcement agencies, elected officials, businesses, and health & community organizations to assist educating the community about current drug dangers, trends and prevention.

"UNDERSTANDING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC"
To Watch This Powerful, And Informative PBS Documentary About One Of America's Biggest Problems,
PLEASE CLICK HERE
America's opioid epidemic is the deadliest drug crisis in U.S. history, with drug
overdoses claiming more lives last year than car accidents or gun
violence. The toll, as a White House Commission put it, is the
equivalent of a new 9/11 attack every three weeks !!
Sheriff Stanek remains committed to public safety issues such as continuing to fight violent crime, attacking the deadly opioid epidemic, and ending the criminalization of mental illness. He brings more than 34 years of law enforcement experience to the Office of Sheriff. In addition to the previously mentioned public safety priorities, he is committed to financial stewardship, leadership, and public safety advocacy. Since being elected, Sheriff Stanek has ensured the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office operated under budget while maintaining a consistent number of employees. He has led the agency by speaking to community groups, hosting listening sessions, and building trust by working directly with residents and businesses every day.

"Sheriff Stanek is a proven public safety leader in Hennepin County," said Don Davis; a retired Hennepin County Police Chief and former Commissioner of Public Safety & Homeland Security for the State of Minnesota.  "During his 11 years in office, he has led initiatives that focus on local and national issues that other elected officials don't want to talk about. From opioids to jail mental illness, he is leading the charge to ensure residents, victims, inmates, and his staff have the resources, tools, and training they need."

"Rich is our local Sheriff. Whatever the time or day of the week it may be, I can confidently pick up the phone and call him about any issue that is affecting me and my community," said Kylee Simonson. "Rich works tirelessly with community members to have their needs heard, provide education about emerging public safety issues, and build trust in the Hennepin County Sheriff's office. His dedication to local public safety is one of the chief reasons why I want him as my local Sheriff."

"Sheriff Stanek has been a great community partner," said Bishop Howell; the Pastor at Shiloh Temple. "As a member of his Community Advisory Board I know that I can bring faith-based community concerns to him, and he will not only listen, but find a solution too. At the end of the day, I know he is our voice for public safety."

A grand jury is separate from the courts, which do not preside over its functioning.
During My Four Year Term As A Hamburg City Council Member, This Privately Funded Website, Available 24/7, Provided Me A Primary Means To Communicate Useful, Meaningful & Interesting Information To The Residents Of Hamburg. It Also Informed City Residents What Was Taking Place In Our City Of Only (about) 516 Residents, By Their City Officials, How They Were Wasting And 'Throwing Away' Hard Earned Taxpayer Dollars.

As A Result, Interestingly Enough, This Website Also Became A Very Popular Website With Others Because Of Its Content, And Was Viewed By Visitors Throughout The Entire World !! For Those People, That Reason And Many Other Reasons, This Website Will Continue To Be Maintained, Updated And Flourish.

HERE'S SOMETHING INTERESTING

Soon after moving to Hamburg and long before either of us were elected to the Hamburg City Council, Chris Lund approached me and wanted us to alternatively go to City Hall and spend the day there to watch what the City Clerk/Treasurer did all during the day.

Because I thought such actions were devious and 'underhanded', I refused to do so.

Will The
CITY OF
Get A
When A
City Employee Receives TAXPAYER DOLLARS To Which They Are NOT ENTITLED, An Honorable Person Would RETURN THOSE TAXPAYER DOLLARS That They Shouldn't Have Received In The First Place, TO THE
TAXPAYERS !!

It Is EVEN MORE EGREGIOUS When That City Employee Is
ALSO A CITY OFFICIAL !!
This Year And Return It To Us; The Taxpayers ??

(It's REALLY
OUR Money!!)
Taxpayers Have A RIGHT TO KNOW What Took
Place  At A
'CLOSED'
CITY COUNCIL
MEETING
Where These Payments Of Taxpayer Dollars Were Discussed;
CLEARLY A
VIOLATION OF
MINNESOTA's
'OPEN MEETING'
LAW;
Instead Of The City 'Covering It
Up' Hoping That No One Will Find
Out About It !!
SHHHHHHHH !!
IT'S ALL
THERE !!

The City Of Hamburg Has Documents, Evidence
And Other Information In It's Possession About What's Taken Place In Our City.

During My Four Year Term As A Hamburg City Council Member, I Requested Numerous Items Of Information To Substantiate What
Was Taking Place, But

THE CITY REFUSED
To Provide Me,
AN ELECTED
CITY OFFICIAL

With The Information
That I Requested !!

I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY THE CITY
To Obtain The Information I Was Seeking As

AN ELECTED
CITY OFFICIAL

Of The
City Of Hamburg !!)

For Starters,
CALL THE
CITY OF HAMBURG And Request To See, And Hear, The Following Document and City Council Meeting Recording:
           
(1) November 5, 2014 Letter To The Hamburg Mayor &  City Council, and

(2) Recording Of The November 2014  "Closed" City Council Meeting, and

(3) Recording Of The September 2015 "Closed" City Council Meeting

Then, And Only Then, Will All Of The Dastardly Deeds Of
It's Officials, And Everything Else That's Taken Place In The City That You've All Read About On This Website For The
Past Four Years,
Be Borne Out.

You'll Quickly Learn That What You May Have Been Told Or Heard About Me Is TOTALLY FALSE
And Was Nothing
More Than A Massive, Underhanded Ruse By The Other Former And Current City Officials, To Force Me To Resign From The City Council Because Of What I Was Discovering And The 'Issues' That I Was Raising Involving Those Other
City Officials !!

It's As Simple As That.

But, Their Despicable Efforts To 'Force Me Out', Failed Miserably.

THE CITY HAS, IN IT'S POSSESSION, ALL OF THE PROOF THAT EVEN THE MOST SKEPTICAL PERSON WOULD
NEED!!
But They're Withholding It.

DEMAND THE INFORMATION !!

You'll Find Out Who Was/Is Involved, What They Did And Why It's Blatantly Being 'Covered Up'.

Everything Then Will Clearly 'Come Into Focus' For Everyone To Know; Hamburg Resident Or Not.
IT'S ALL
THERE !!

Along With A Lot More Information Of What Else Took Place That You'll Find VERY Interesting.

(This Website Was Initially Launched On August 21, 2007.)

According to their Webpage, the mission of the Chisago County Attorney's Office is to seek justice, promote public safety by prosecuting crime, protecting those in need, and representing the interest of Chisago County. That makes good sense.

According to recent news reports, upon receiving a complaint about Chisago County Sheriff Rick Duncan, County Attorney Janet Reiter's office initiated an investigation. Duncan, who announced in March that he was seeking reelection in 2018, has now notified the Chisago County Board that he is (suddenly) retiring citing 'medical reasons'. PLEASE CLICK HERE. Hmmmmmmmmmmm !! (Kudos to County Attorney Reiter !!)

I'm sure it's refreshing for Chisago County residents to know that REGARDLESS of who is involved, EVEN IF IT'S LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS, those involved are NOT ABOVE THE LAW and will, at the very least, be be investigated, and prosecuted if appropriate, like ANY OTHER SUSPECT believed to have broken the law.

And, unlike Hamburg residents, I'll bet my last dollar that Chisago County Taxpayers didn't have to 'fork over' $50,000.00 of their hard earned TAXPAYER DOLLARS dollars to get the justice that they deserve but Hamburg residents never received !!
QUESTION: Why weren't MY concerns I witnessed and subsequent complaints that I reported, as a Hamburg City Council Member,
ever investigated ??  (President Trump To Former F.B.I. Director James Comey: “I HOPE YOU CAN LET THIS GO.")

The answer is simple, disgusting and it's SO OBVIOUS: Not only was it because of WHO the HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS INVOLVED were, but also because of WHO they all 'KNEW' !! 

My Case In Point: www.thedeltashow.com/cityofhamburgmn.html. Many of the answers that residents need to know about what was taking place by Hamburg City Officials that was wasting hard earned taxpayer dollars, are contained in the written transcript of my interrogation by the McLeod County Sheriff's Office when the Hamburg City Officials filed a 'bogus' criminal complaint against me with the Carver County Sheriff's Office. (Certainly, and not surprisingly; I was TOTALLY EXHONORATED because I had done NOTHING wrong or inappropriate.)

Like the Chisago County Attorney, will the Carver County Attorney (please) now begin an investigation as to what took place in the City of Hamburg and find out WHY my reports made and evidence submitted to the Carver County Sheriff of what was taking place in the City  of Hamburg involving its elected and other City Officials, WERE NEVER INVESTIGATED ?? Or, CRIMINALLY PROSECUTED ??

And The 'Hits' Just Keep On Coming .........
On April 5th, 2018 Sheriff Stanek, members of the Sheriff’s Community Advisory Board, and national police-community experts representing the U.S. Department of Justice - Community Oriented Policing Services Office, highlighted the community oriented policing efforts by our agency that have become a national model.

Members of the Sheriff’s Community Advisory Board discussed their role in providing community oversight for our office. Their oversight has led to important conversations about how best to build community trust, and a changing agency culture that incorporates community views and expectations about officer training, agency policy, diversity hiring, and crime reduction efforts, as they relate to this 21st Century Policing Initiative.

As part of this 21st Century Policing Initiative, our agency has worked to train and empower all employees to participate in agency-wide community engagement efforts. Everyone from records clerks and detention deputies to the sworn officers and the Sheriff are personally engaging with residents and community leaders at every level.

The team from CNA, representing the C.O.P.S. Office, highlighted some of the unique programs our agency has implemented related to 21st Century Policing Initiative. New programs have included crisis intervention training, classroom training on 21st Century Policing Initiative, implicit bias and procedural justice, cultural awareness training, and deputy wellness programs. Conversations with the community have included the most controversial topics, from officer hiring standards and discipline, to reviewing the process involved in investigating an officer-involved shooting.

These programs have been documented during the past three years by CNA, and are included in a report that will be available to nearly 18,000 law enforcement agencies through the country as a “how to” guide for community policing.

MARYLAND SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER PRAISED FOR PREVENTING SCHOOL TRAGEDY

"Our School Resource Officer who was stationed inside the school was alerted," St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron said during a press conference. "He pursued the shooter, engaged the shooter. During that engagement, he fired a round at the shooter. Simultaneously, the shooter fired a round as well."

The shooter was killed, but it is unclear whether Deputy Blaine Gaskill fired the deadly shot or the shooter turned the gun on himself. Either way, the School Resource Officer is credited with defusing the situation within a minute, Cameron said, potentially saving lives.

Deputy Gaskill, who left the scene unharmed, was widely praised for his action.

OFF DUTY AVON (MINNESOTA) POLICE OFFICER SAVES LIVES SHOOTING MAN WHO INJURED NINE PEOPLE IN STABBING
ATTACK AT ST. CLOUD SHOPPING MALL; RECEIVES
CONGRESSIONAL BADGE OF BRAVERY

Five minutes after authorities received the first 911 call, Jason Falconer, a part-time officer in the city of Avon, began shooting the attacker as he was lunging at him with the knife, and continued to engage him as the attacker got up three times, according to police.

Avon Police Chief Corey Nellis said at a press conference Monday that he is “very proud of Officer Falconer’s heroic actions in confronting the perpetrator of the stabbing assaults of the Crossroads Mall Saturday.”

“Officer Falconer put himself in harm’s way to protect the public from a man who had already stabbed nine victims,” Nellis said, adding that Falconer was the “right person, at the right place, at the right time.”

THOUSANDS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS TOTALLY WASTED !!
How Much Did This 'Hairbrain Idea'
Cost Hamburg Taxpayers Just In
ENGINEERING FEES ALONE ??
And subsequently cost Hamburg Taxpayers $50,000.00 in legal fees paid to Melchert, Hubert & Sjodin; the city's 'contract' law firm in Waconia.

Are Hamburg City Officials 'ABOVE THE LAW'  ?? Apparently; they are. Aren't they ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR HEINOUS and COVERT actions ?? Apparently; they're not. The 'cover up' continues.

Knowing what I know, and after what I've witnessed and experienced, first-hand, taking place in the City of Hamburg involving its City Officials, it should come as no surprise to anyone that current Carver County Sheriff James Olson has announced he will not seek re-election at the end of this year when his term expires.

WHERE IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY & SUPERVISION OF OUR CITY'S 'ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF' ??

WHY Is Our City's Highly Overpaid (about $100,000.00!!) City 'Administrative Staff', That Is Gobbling Up Somewhere Close To 25% OF OUR CITY'S ANNUAL BUDGET, Not Able To Do DO SOMETHING SO SIMPLE As To Ensure That City Residents Can View The City Council Agenda For An Upcoming Meeting BEFORE The Council Meeting Is Held; As We Are Told And As It States On The City's Own 'Official' Website ?

From The Desk Of Carver County Sheriff Bud Olson .......

"Dick: Thanks for your public service; you do so much and probably don't get recognized for any of it. But, you are a wonderful asset for Carver County and Hamburg and for your radio listening community; you're just a great guy. Thanks so much."

"My prayer would be more Dick Odoms' would rise up and get involved in their lives, in their  communities and in our way of life!  Our future needs courageous leaders who are not afraid to “challenge” the process and our leaders.   America needs our involvement more than ever because of the polarizations that is taking place at all levels of government and our lives.  I have tried to think of any part of my life where government in NOT involved in some way, shape or form.  While I believe we cannot live without “the people” looking out for each other, I believe we have created a monster that has an appetite we cannot sustain.  Something has to give……"

"ACCOUNTABILITY"

Political Accountability refers to the responsibility or obligation of government
officials to act in the best interests of society or face consequences.
Public Officials should be held responsible for their actions.

Legal Accountability concerns the mechanisms by which Public Officials can
be held liable for actions that go against established rules and principles.
