ORIGINAL HOMEPAGE
About The City Of Hamburg When It All Began In October 2019 When I Discovered A Conspiracy Between CITY OFFICIALS TO
WITHHOLD PUBLIC
INFORMATION
FROM CITIZENS !!
HAMBURG MAYOR
CHRIS LUND
Has Some Real 
Shocking & Abhorrent
"SKELETONS
IN HIS CLOSET"
That Hamburg Residents
Most Likely Are NOT Aware Of.
NOTE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE:
(You'll Learn WHY This FACT IS IMPORTANT !!)

In PERSONALLY  Checking With The 'HEAD TELLER' And TWO Other Bank Employees, I Have Learned That The STATE BANK of HAMBURG, (Now Known As SECURITY BANK),
DOESN'T HAVE,
and NEVER HAS HAD,
BASEMENT !!
As The Election Nears, You'll Find Out
MUCH MORE  About LUND (Who Is SEEKING
RE-ELECTION This Fall) That He Would Rather Hamburg  Residents (And Others) Didn't Know
About Him, His IRRESPONSIBLITY 
& His DISGUSTING ANTICS !!
PLEASE CLICK HERE.

LUND Is TRULY An EMBARASSMENT TO THE
CITY And To HAMBURG RESIDENTS !!

That's Why I Was Approached And
ASKED TO FILE
FOR HAMBURG MAYOR !!

I've Also Designed A Webpage EXCLUSIVELY
About Hamburg's 'NOT SO SQUEAKY CLEAN ' Mayor Who Wants Everyone To Believe That
He's A 'Model Citizen' And BELIEVES
That He DESERVES To Be
Re-Elected This Fall. NOT !!

There Is NO REASON WHAT-SO-EVER For, Nor Does LUND Deserve, That City Residents Return Him To Office This Fall For ANOTHER TERM  As Hamburg Mayor !!

During the four years that I served on the Hamburg City Council (2013-2017), I had some very  noteworthy accomplishments that BENEFITTED THE ENTIRE CITY and of which I am very proud !! PLEASE CLICK HERE.

The MAJOR accomplishment was replacing the 'ancient' manual start, diesel powered generator at the Main Sewage Lift Statuion in Bi-Centennial Park, with an automatic, state-of-the-art generator powered by natural gas that starts unattended and automatically in the event of a commercial power failure.

When I was elected to the City Council in 2013, the City had already received a bid of $31,000.00 to replace the old generator. Becuase of my knowledge and background about such things, I assumed control of procurring, and the installation of, a new generator. After all was said and done, a new generator was installed in the spring of 2014 at a cost of $23,000.00; and at a SAVINGS TO TAXPAYERS OF $8,000.00 !!

Because  I  arranged  for  the  natura l gas line  to be installed in the fall of  2013  BEFORE  the  ground  froze, I SAVED TAXPAYERS ANOTHER $800.00 !! (Propane heaters wouldn't have to be used to thaw the ground out in the spring.)

To see the 'site plan' that I prepared in anticipation of installation of a new generator for the Main Sewage Lift Station, PLEASE CLICK HERE. Also, to see the Webpage I designed chronicalling the installation, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

The next time you flush your toilet during a thunderstorm that has 'knocked the power out', I hope that you'll think of me for being the reason that raw sewage doen't backup into your basement !!
On July 31, 2014 a reckless driver lost control of his vehicle and careened into the Sewage 'Grinder Station' on Jacob Street totally demolishing it. The accident TOTALLY disabled the station and rendered it completely 'out of service'. Xcel Energy had to come out and TOTALLY disconnect it from their power lines !!

Hamburg's Public Works employee, Greg Schultz, was 'Johnny On The Spot' (or 'Greg On The Spot') immediately after the incident and was able to get some 'temporary' repairs accomplished so that the grinder that grinds the sewage (and other) solids and send therm on their way to the main Sewage Lift Station in Bi-Centennial Park, could do just that and area residents wouldn't have sewage backing up into their homes. But then, instead of the station being 'automatic', it had to be 'monitored' 24/7 and the grinder and pumps needed to be manually started every three hours or so, day and night, powered by the standby emergency generator intended to power the station in the event of a power failure.

For the next few weeks, (I forget exactly how long), Hamburg's Public Works employee, and I, 'babysat' the station 24/7 by running the emergency standby generator every few hours to power the sewage grinder and the pumps to ensure that Hamburg residents in the area would have uninterrupted 'sewer service'.

The picture to the right is how the 'Grinder Station' looks today. For more information and to see more pictures, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

As regular visitors to my Websites know, for the PAST NINE MONTHS I have been trying to obtain the total amount of TAXPAYER DOLLARS that the City has spent for legal fees, and other related expenses, in defending the civil lawsuit brought against the City OVER THREE YEARS  AGO !! (July 31, 2019 to be EXACT !!) The City of Hamburg has been steadfastly  'stonewalling' me from  obtaining that information, thereby PREVENTING ME from posting that PUBLIC INFORMATION on my Websites !!

FINALLY, according to the Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer's Office, as of August 18, 2022, the City has spent $62,122.14 in legal fees; presumably that
ENTIRE AMOUNT being paid to the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN !! ANOTHER $13,150.37 has been spent for
OTHER THAN legal expenses; for a GRAND TOTAL OF $75,272.51 !! (And the case ISN'T SCHEDULED FOR COURT UNTIL JANUARY 2023 !!)

Folks; the OBSCENE AMOUNT OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS that has ALREADY BEEN WASTED (by BOTH 'sides') over the PAST THREE + YEARS, is a TOTAL
AND COMPLETE WASTE OF YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY !! There is NO WAY that Trebesches or the City will EVER be able to CLAIM VICTORY; that's
ALREADY BEEN DONE BY THE LAWYERS  representing the City & the Trebesches !! (LAWYERS ALWAYS WIN !!)
.
And, There's Much, MUCH MORE ...........................................

Like "THE BIG FREEZE" of The 2013-2014 Winter When The City's Water Lines To Residents Homes Froze Up Because Of A

In Addition To Previously Alerting HAMBURG, CARVER COUNTY and MINNESOTA RESIDENTS
(And Other Followers  Of My Websites) Of The Potential Availability Of A 'REFUND'
(Of Up To $480.00) To Minnesota (only) CenturyLink Customers, Did
You Know That You May ALSO Be Eligible To

PAY LESS  FOR INTERNET ACCESS or EVEN GET FREE  INTERNET ACCESS ??
Internet access is necessary for work, school, healthcare, and more. Unfortunately, high speed internet remains unaffordable for too many households. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) runs a program, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), that reduces the cost of getting online for people with limited income.  Many internet providers offer fully covered Internet plans – meaning you may even get high-speed Internet for free. MOST ISP's participate.

If your household income is 200% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines or someone in your household participates in certain government assistance programs, you may be eligible for the benefits the ACP provides. Visit the ACP Website to see if you qualify. You can take advantage of the
discounts with confidence knowing that receiving ACP assistance does not affect your Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits.

I applied for this 'benefit' of 'DISCOUNTED INTERNET ACCESS' from my Internet Service Provider (ISP) METRO-NET last Spring; application
was fast, easy and was all done on line. Before I knew it, my 'DISCOUNT INTERNET ACCESS' was all set up and operational; NO ONE EVEN
HAD TO COME OUT to the house !! For those 'skeptics' out there (like Mike), 'click' on the 'thumbnail' to see my recent METRO-NET statements.
DO YOU TAKE THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG ELIQUIS ??
While the price varies among pharmacies, the average retail price of Eliquis without insurance is $626.15 for a 30-day prescription of 60,
5 mg tablets, the dosage prescribed to people with atrial fibrillation or serious blood clots like deep vein thrombosis  or pulmonary embolism. That averages to about $21 per day or $10.50 per tablet. Unfortunately, there is currently no generic version of Eliquis on the market and no over-the-counter alternatives, so patients without insurance may need to pay full retail price for this brand-name medication. But, you may be eligible to
RECEIVE ELIQUIS AT NO CHARGE !!

(I 'SAW THIS COMING' A LONG TIME AGO)
As Before, The Current Controversy AGAIN Centers Around Current
CITY OF HAMBURG
CLERK/TREASURER
JEREMY GRUENHAGEN
CITY OF HAMBURG
MAYOR
CHRIS LUND

"WAIT
A MINUTE" !!
"So,
what we've been reading about on his Websites
ALL THIS TIME
REALLY IS
"TRUE,
ACCURATE,
and
CORRECT" !!


See My E-mail To The City Attorney KELLY C. DOHM Seeking Information About What Is Taking Place;
WITNESS HER ARROGANCE & INDIFFERENCE !!

CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING LINK:
www.THEDELTASHOW.com/09-29-22-REQUESTING-INCIDENT-INFORMATION.html

During the past THREE+ YEARS, I've been conducting some in-depth 'research' about what has been taking place in Hamburg. I am THOROUGHLY FAMILIAR with the PERSONALITIES, TACTICS, and TRAITS of the current AND former HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS INVOLVED. I  HAVE  NOTHING  TO  HIDE and I'M  NOT  INVOLVED in what  has taken place. Because of my background and experience, I am the ONLY CITY RESIDENT that is KNOWLEDGEABLE enough of WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE, has the necessary 'SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION' and is the MOST QUALIFIED, to IMPARTIALLY deal with this entire matter, and several other issues, in the BEST INTERESTS of CITY RESIDENTS now, and in the future. I certainly have NOTHING to gain or to lose; I "DON'T HAVE A HORSE IN THIS RACE" as I have NEVER BEEN INVOLVED with what you've been hearing and reading about that's been taking place during  the past six years.

By the way; did you know that, interestingly enough; just CURRENT MAYOR CHRIS LUND and I, were the ONLY PERSONS THAT FORMALLY FILED FOR THE MAYOR'S POSITION ?? So, now; WHY do you think a couple of other Hamburg residents have suddenly begun organizing 'write-in' campaigns after filings had closed and only AFTER it was learned that I had filed), for Hamburg Mayor ?? EVERYBODY ELSE who is now seeking to be elected as the next  Hamburg Mayor by means of a HASTILY DRAFTED 'WRITE IN' CAMPAIGN, has 'had their fingers in the pie' at one time or another and in 'varying degrees'. They ALL have 'dirty hands' !! (If anyone knows of someone who is organizing a 'write in' campaign for Hamburg Mayor, please send me their name and address; so that I can at least send them a BAR OF SOAP !!!)

They REALLY DON'T WANT TO BE THE MAYOR OF HAMBURG; and REALLY NEVER DID !! Example: MALZ FILED FOR CITY COUNCIL; NOT the MAYOR's POSITION !! (HE DESERVES NEITHER !!) Their DISGUSTING & UNDERHANDED ACTIONS  are nothing more than an attempt to 'SPLIT UP THE VOTE' to PREVENT ME from being elected your next Mayor, so that THEY; (and NOT THE RESIDENTS), can STILL CONTROL what City residents read, hear and know, as well as DETERMINE HOW TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE SPENT !! (Like has been taking place WHILE, BEFORE and SINCE I was a City Council Member.) Their DECEPTIVE MOTIVES  are as clear as the nose on their face. This year it's MY MAYORAL CAMPAIGN they are trying to 'BLOCK' !! DON'T LET IT HAPPEN.

HOW
Is It Possible To Have
SO MUCH TURMOIL
In Such A Small City Of Only 566 Residents Having
  ONLY THREE TWO ONE EMPLOYEES ??

The ANSWER Is OBVIOUS:
THE CITY  HAS NO LEADERSHIP !!

And NOW, Thanks To LUND, GRUENHAGEN & DOHM, We Also Have
NO PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEE  Or 'DEPUTY' CITY CLERK !!

I Have A
VERY LONG HISTORY
Of 'Looking' Out For TAXPAYER DOLLARS !!
By now, it's most likely that the majority of Hamburg residents have heard the 'rumblings' (as I have) about  what recently took place at City Hall involving Hamburg City Employees.

Sadly, because of Minnesota's infamous 'Data Privacy Laws', the true facts of what took place aren't going to be  'made public' anytime soon (if at all) about an 'internal' investigation that supposedly  took place and who was involved.

While the City has
NOT PROVIDED
INFORMATION
to its residents about what took place (NO SURPISE there!!), as
a CONCERNED HAMBURG RESIDENT and in the interest
of 'TRANSPARENCY', I have FORMALLY REQUESTED
INFORMATION regarding what took place & will CONTINUE to strive to get as many FACTS
and as much ACCURATE INFORMATION (NOT 'speculation' or 'rumor') and publish that information
on this Website, so
PLEASE CHECK BACK
as this Website is being
UPDATED FREQUENTLY !!

AND GET THIS:

HAMBURG MAYOR CHRIS LUND, who has a history of being 'hostle' toward women, and HAMBURG
CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, who appears to have 'anger issues', were the
HAMBURG  CITY OFFICIALS NAMED in the FORMAL, WRITTEN COMPLAINT
filed by the (former) Hamburg 'Deputy' City Clerk; a DEDICATED CITY EMPLOYEE
during the time that the incidents and activity alleged, took place !!

Instead of contacting an 'outside source' to PROPERLY, IMPARTIALLY and THOROUGHLY
investigate  the employee's FORMAL WRITTEN COMPLAINT, GRUENHAGEN contacted
(his friend and 'buddy') the 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY, KELLY C. DOHM,
and asked DOHM to conduct an INTERNAL investigation !! ANOTHER "COVER UP" !!

OF COURSE, NO 'WRONGDOING' , ON THE PART OF LUND OR GRUENHAGEN, WAS FOUND !!

Tell a friend about this page
Tell a friend about this page
A SIMILAR SITUATION
occurred a few years ago INVOLVING LUND, DOHM
& GRUENHAGEN
as well as the
FORMER HAMBURG MAYOR DICK MALZ !!

That whole ordeal 'dragged on' for
TWO & A HALF YEARS;
the City 'lost', and it
COST TAXPAYERS  $50,000.00 !!
Tell a friend about this page

IS 'HISTORY' BEING REPEATED THIS YEAR ??
I VIVIDLY Recall A 'Contingent' Of City Officials, INCLUDING RICHARD MALZ, (who was HAMBURG'S MAYOR at the time), And My 'Friend', BRAD DROEGE; Showing Up At My Door One Cold Fall Night In About 2009 Asking Me To Use The 'POWER' And The 'POPULARITY' Of My HAMBURG
WEBSITE To 'BLOCK' LUND FROM BEING ELECTED In  An Upcoming Election AFTER IT BECAME KNOWN
That He 'Filed' For The City Council !!   (I Flatly REFUSED Their UNETHICAL REQUEST
Because That's NOT The Kind Of Person I Am !!)

Does ANY OF THE ABOVE SOUND Even 'REMOTELY FAMILIAR' To You About
WHAT'S CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE In The City Of Hamburg NOW ??!!


Fortunately, HAMBURG RESIDENTS ARE BRILLIANT ENOUGH now to see through these DEVIOUS 'SMOKE & MIRRORS' TACTICS & ACTIONS, in their DESPERATE ATTEMPTS OF A FEW TO RETAIN 'CONTROL' of the City of Hamburg & KEEP  THAT CONTROL OF THE CITY, AWAY FROM HAMBURG RESIDENTS !!

ANYBODY can INSTANTLY RECOGNIZE the 'sham' that a 'handful of people' ('control freaks') are trying to 'pull off' AGAINST  the City's DECENT RESIDENTS !! DON'T ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN.

AS YOUR NEXT MAYOR, I WOULD HAVE CHANGED THAT & THEY KNOW IT !!

REGARDLESS of  WHO THEY ARE, if someone, ANYONE; shows up at  your door seeking  your support of a 'WRITE IN' CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR, THAT'S A 'RED HERRING' to you that somehow, THEY'RE INVOLVED with some of the 'sinister' things that have TAKEN PLACE, or are currently TAKING PLACE, in Hamburg !!

The WORST THING that an EMPLOYER CAN DO is NOT PAY EMPLOYEES ON TIME !! I received the following (edited) message:

"Did you know that Jeremy has a long-standing history of not paying city employees on-time? This is 100% fact. I know as I manage our budget and have had to personally deal with these issues.  This has been going on for years and impacted the Public Works and 'Deputy' City Clerk employees. I lodged a complaint with the Mayor in January of 2020 about this as well as anger management issues that I’d been hearing about. Jeremy would inform the City employees that they weren’t getting paid on payday as he hadn’t ran payroll in time, or he’d call in sick on payday which would also sometimes result in them not getting paid on-time or would result in the Mayor and Assistant Mayor to have to come up to the office to sign paychecks at the last minute. After years of the former 'Deputy' City Clerk asking that they move to direct deposit, Jeremy was eventually made to move to direct deposit a few years ago AND was supposed to process payroll a few days prior to the cut-off for sending payroll to the bank so that these issues wouldn’t happen anymore. The most recent issue with payroll was in early September where Jeremy sent a text message on Thursday late afternoon to the city employees (excluding the city council) stating that he didn’t get the payroll submitted to the bank in time for the city employees to get paid the next day. Since this was also a holiday weekend this meant that they weren’t going to get their direct deposits until the following Tuesday. He then called in sick the next morning which meant that he wasn’t going to be coming in to print paper checks. He was forced to come into the office to print paper checks on his sick day."

MAKE NO MISTAKE: If CHRIS LUND, or a 'WRITE IN' MAYORAL CANDIDATE  are victorious this fall, Hamburg residents are GUARANTEED of ANOTHER FOUR YEARS OF MORE SECRECY & DECEPTION, MORE INCOMPETANCE,
CONTINUED DISCORD, HIGH TAXES, and ADDITIONAL LAWSUITS !!

REMEMBER WHO TOLD YOU  WHAT YOU'VE ALREADY
READ ABOVE & ARE  ABOUT  TO  READ BELOW !!

"You would be an excellent
Mayor, my friend !"

"Hope you're doing well. You
got my vote."

"Any plans (of the former employees)
to bring a lawsuit or anything against the city? Normally I wouldn't think
that would be a good idea
but if  it helps bring to
light the situation and
people are held
accountable."

"Thank you for sharing
all this information. I hope
this comes out before the election
as I'd hate to think someone like Lund could get back into the Mayor seat allowing something like this to
happen. Especially in the
times we are in now with the MeToo movement protecting woman
from workplace behavior
to woman by men."

"Stay the course, keep it clean, you've done a lot by communicating (USPS) with residents. You're a good man, and could change, clean out some of the dirt, and have fun - you would look good  in a parade sitting on the back
of an old convertible, dishing up  chili
at the Fire Hall fund raiser, any
and all of the above."

"I would like to endorse Dick  Odoms for Mayor! I have known Dick since 1980. I am a retired Police Officer with 34 years experience; 30 working for the City of Orono. Dick was working for Hennepin County. I found Dick to been extremly competent and very resourceful in how he approached his job. His dedication is second to none! You won’t make a mistake in Voting Odoms for Mayor !!!

Kurt Erickson,  Retired
Orono Police Department

"If you have a spare room I could
move in for thirty  days and
vote in the election !"

"I like it. Loved the part about
holding  people accountable."

"Delta, Top shelf show this evening, thank you for the entertainment
and information. Hamburg has a gift
in your show, and hopefully,
soon; you as head of the City."

"Have you ever read the end of the meeting minutes where they spell
out what they're spending money
on? Good Lord they waste so
much money. Why are they
buying $1,700 laptops, and
$4,000 checks and $12,000 checks
to the attorneys office in a month,
and why and where are they
installing $700 cameras. Seems
like this town thinks  there is
an open checkbook
or something."

"You must be working on election
stuff.  Hope it's going well."

"Great find for the citizens of Hamburg. YOU ARE AMAZING."

Good Morning Dick,
I received your campaign mailer yesterday.  It was a very nice product.  It came folded in half, as intended, but I found the first fold 1/4, which is what one would immediately see upon opening, said it all, and quite clearly.  I skimmed the remainder, which is much more than I would read, but if someone wanted more detail they could easily find it there. Once again, good product, good luck, and most of all a good election day. Stay healthy.

"Nice job in the Mayor questions !! Do you have time to chat?"
(I ALWAYS have time to chat !)
Text Message Received About
The Current Hamburg Mayor
Mayor Chris Lund:
"That lying snake should be tarred &
feathered' (and run) outta town."

"Good luck on your  mayoral race.
I'd  vote for you if I could.

""I already knew I was voting for you before but this solidified it for me as I couldn't support a man that would allow something like that to happen to a woman and brush it under the rug."

"Hi Richard, Good Luck on your run
for Mayor, we know that you
would do a great job."

"Why would everyone cover this up, is it because they don't want to lose Jeremy due to his job being such
a vital part of the town?"

"How do you make a contribution?"
(150 Jacob Street Hamburg 55339)

"In the mail."

GOT IT; THANKS !!

"Holy Cow. Good job. When Delta
speaks, a person better listen."

"I never thought that Hamburg Minnesota had so many rotten politicians after reading about what's  been going on there on your www.HamburgMinnesota.com
Website. Disgusting !!"

"Got your flyer, very informative."

Like what your reading here ? Check out some of the other COMMENTS THAT I'VE RECEIVED as a result of my very popular hour long, five day a week WORLD-WIDE INTERNET SHOW !! Residents of Hamburg AND Carver County will be pleasantly surprised at how many names they'll recognize !!
"Dick, I'd vote for you if I could, but apparently it is considered (by most anyway), illegal for a citizen to vote
in an election outside of his or
her legal state  of residence."

"Wish I was an eligible voter, but does
that matter anymore ?"

After Announcing My Filing For Mayor:
"Hi Dick - That is so great to hear."

      "I saw that coming !"

"Very Good !!"

"I respect and value what you have to
say to keep us informed. I appreciate it."

"Will all this information be made
public on your website? I think people have a right to know what type of
person Jeremy is if the council
and mayor are going to sweep
it under the rug."

"How is Tamera is doing? I know it's
not easy walking away from a job. I
hope she's doing okay."

"You got it, or are getting it - the 'back stabbing' of politics."

"Dick, I have always known you as an honest man. I am sorry that this is happening to you at the hands of
deceitful and immoral people. I hope
they pay for what they do to people."

"Good ALWAYS triumphs over evil."

"I applaud your calling out of Lund, on
top of all his BS, he is not that smart either; so a bad person for Mayor.
Like I said before, these guys do the dumbest things, they have to be
directed by 'someone', and somehow; believe that 'someone' will always
be able to protect them. It is time
that all ends."

"My HAMBURG MAYORAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN WEBSITE, www.HAMBURGMINNESOTA.com (THIS WEBPAGE that you're READING NOW), contains CRITICAL INFORMATION that is of VITAL IMPORTANCE to Hamburg RESIDENTS so that they may make informed decisions in the voting booth this November affecting the FUTURE of OUR City, based on FACTS; rather than rumors and 'innuendo'. My Website also contains my many reasons for seeking election as Hamburg's next Mayor as well as information about my background and my suitability, for the position.

As your next Mayor, I will restore the badly NEEDED, and REQUIRED, values of LEADERSHIP, INTEGRITY and ACCOUNTABILITY that have been NON-EXISTENT in OUR City for the past SIX YEARS because of the POOR and INEFFECTIVE Administration in the City of Hamburg, during the past six years. As your next Mayor, I will also ENSURE that Hamburg RESIDENTS play a MAJOR ROLE in directing the future of OUR City, for the next four years and beyond."
The CONTROL of the CITY of Hamburg MUST  be RETURNED to the CITIZENS that FUND it !!"

In Addition To Previously Alerting HAMBURG, CARVER COUNTY and MINNESOTA RESIDENTS
(And Other Followers  Of My Websites) Of The Potential Availability Of A 'REFUND'
(Of Up To $480.00) To Minnesota (only) CenturyLink Customers, Did
You Know That You May ALSO Be Eligible To

PAY LESS  FOR INTERNET ACCESS or EVEN GET FREE  INTERNET ACCESS ??
Internet access is necessary for work, school, healthcare, and more. Unfortunately, high speed internet remains unaffordable for too many households. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) runs a program, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), that reduces the cost of getting online for people with limited income.  Many internet providers offer fully covered Internet plans – meaning you may even get high-speed Internet for free. MOST ISP's participate.

If your household income is 200% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines or someone in your household participates in certain government assistance programs, you may be eligible for the benefits the ACP provides. Visit the ACP Website to see if you qualify. You can take advantage of the
discounts with confidence knowing that receiving ACP assistance does not affect your Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits.

I applied for this 'benefit' of 'DISCOUNTED INTERNET ACCESS' from my Internet Service Provider (ISP) METRO-NET last Spring; application
was fast, easy and was all done on line. Before I knew it, my 'DISCOUNT INTERNET ACCESS' was all set up and operational; NO ONE EVEN
HAD TO COME OUT to the house !! For those 'skeptics' out there (like Mike), 'click' on the 'thumbnail' to see my recent METRO-NET statements.
DO YOU TAKE THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG ELIQUIS ??
While the price varies among pharmacies, the average retail price of Eliquis without insurance is $626.15 for a 30-day prescription of 60,
5 mg tablets, the dosage prescribed to people with atrial fibrillation or serious blood clots like deep vein thrombosis  or pulmonary embolism. That averages to about $21 per day or $10.50 per tablet. Unfortunately, there is currently no generic version of Eliquis on the market and no over-the-counter alternatives, so patients without insurance may need to pay full retail price for this brand-name medication. But, you may be eligible to
RECEIVE ELIQUIS AT NO CHARGE !!
SKEPTICAL ?? PLEASE CLICK HERE; and PLEASE CHECK BACK !!

RESTORE TRUST & INTEGRITY  TO THE
HAMBURG MAYOR'S OFFICE & CITY HALL !!
MY 'VISION'
As The Next
MAYOR OF HAMBURG

All successful 'visions' have four qualities associated with them:

1. A clearly defined and stated outcome.
2. A context/perspective that it can be done.
3. A commitment to achieving it.
4. Taking ownership or responsibility for implementing it.

MY 'VISION' FOR THE CITY OF HAMBURG
as its next Mayor was delivered to each residence in the City detailing some
of my 'thoughts & ideas' of how to REDUCE UNNECESSARY and
EXCESSIVE SPENDING & IMPROVE  the overall day-to-day
EFFICIENCY of the City and its DELIVERY of SERVICES.

I've already got the 4 items required (listed above) in place along with
a comprehensive strategy, structure, knowledge, and the time;
to implement the process, but I 'can't do it alone'.
FIRST; I NEED YOUR VOTE FOR MAYOR
TO MAKE THIS ALL HAPPEN !!

SECOND, once elected as the next Hamburg Mayor and in COOPERATION
WITH THE CITY COUNCIL, we will work diligently and effectively
TOGETHER; so that some EXTRAORDINARY OUTCOMES
FOR RESIDENTS WILL BE ACHIEVED !!

"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……"

INCUMBENT HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL MEMBER ERIC POPPLER

PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Yet, ERIC POPPLER is the type of
PUBLIC OFFICIAL that Hamburg
residents RE-ELECTED to represent
THEM & the City of  Hamburg !!

Also, HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES
RICHARD MALZ and ANTHONY VAN HAFTEN
FAILED TO RESPOND to the
newspaper's request as well !!

The City of Hamburg ALSO gave Hamburg Mayoral and City Council
candidates an opportunity to provide a statement about
themselves and why they were seeking election.

Once again, the
INCUMBENT HAMBURG
CITY COUNCIL MEMBER
ERIC POPPLER
FAILED TO RESPOND
to the City's request.

Also,  CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE ANTHONY VAN HAFTEN
FAILED TO RESPOND to the City's request as well !!.

The FAILURE of ALL of the candidates who FAILED TO RESPOND to the opportunity to 'introduce' themselves
and state WHY they are seeking election, certainly
is an 'indicator' as to their interest & 'sincerity'
of wanting  to be elected !!
AND, don't YOU  thinks it's REALLY STRANGE
that NO ONE (except me) expressed ANY
measures that they would  initiate, to get the
OUTRAGEOUS SPENDING BY
THE CITY UNDER CONTROL ??
FACT IS STRANGER THAN FICTION !!

Instead of choosing a retired, PROFESSIONAL POLICE OFFICER/DEPUTY SHERIFF with nearly TWENTY
YEARS of Law Enforcement experience to LEAD THEIR CITY for ANOTHER FOUR YEARS, RESIDENTS
of the CITY OF HAMBURG recently voted to re-elect the INCUMBENT MAYOR CHRIS LUND who has
been ARRESTED for DWI, CONVICTED of CARELESS DRIVING, REFUSES  to PROVIDE
ANSWERS & EXPLANATIONS for his UNWORTHINESS as MAYOR
AND
CONVICTED OF DOMESTIC ASSAULT !!

MEDDLING:
An intransitive verb; to INTEREST ONESELF IN WHAT IS NOT ONE'S CONCERN; INTERFERE WITHOUT RIGHT OR PROPRIETY.

Election is a formal way by which citizens vote to elect their Government. Election interference not only subverts a citizen’s right to
sovereignty and the freedom to elect their desired government, but also undermines democracy and solely benefits dictators.

I PLEDGED To REDUCE TAXES  By CUTTING
UNNECESSARY, WASTEFUL SPENDING By The City,
PROVIDE TRANSPARENCY Of LOCAL GOVERNMENT  &
HOLD  PUBLIC OFFICIALS
TOTALLY ACCOUNTABLE !!
NOBODY  Has Been ABLE  (Or WANTED)
To DO THAT  In The PAST 6  YEARS !!

MY VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF HAMBURG ..........

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY DIRECT the City and it's lawyers, to work DILIGENTLY and EFFECTIVELY to QUICKLY RESOLVE the current lawsuit against the City in a manner that is FAIR & EQUITABLE to all concerned. This litigation against the City; which has 'dragged on' for far too long (OVER 3+ YEARS !!), has resulted in an UNACCEPTABLE, OBSCENE & BURDENSOME EXPENSE  (approximately $80,000.00 !!) to Hamburg Taxpayers. At this point, neither the City, nor the plaintiffs, will EVER be able to 'claim victory', the only real 'winners' of this litigation, are the lawyers !!

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY RESCIND ALL EMPLOYEE SALARY INCREASES for 2023 approved by the previous City Council. (Raises approved to Fire Department Personnel for 2023 will REMAIN INTACT.)

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY RESCIND the long standing practice of paying the City Clerk/Treasurer (approximately) $50.00 for each time that he is 'called out' to deal with ANY  'City Business' or perform any required 'City Service' after normal City 'business hours'. Because he is classified as an 'EXEMPT EMPLOYEE' and receives a large salary each month, the City Clerk/Treasurer will be expected to be available 24/7 on an 'on call' basis.

AS YOUR MAYOR, and in accordance with the above, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY RESCIND the long standing and UNFAIR (to the Employee) practice of requiring the Public Works Employee to be the 'go to person' after 'normal business hours' or anytime that City Hall Administration/Personnel are absent during 'normal business hours'.

That 'responsibility' is an obligation and requirement of the City Clerk/Administrator; NOT an 'hourly' employee. The Public Works Employee will, however; be required to be available 24/7 via a cell phone/pager, provided by the City, for matters relating to Sewer/Water/Public Works operation, and will continue to be compensated appropriately when 'called out' after normal business hours; probably as has been the practice in the past.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council, to require that ALL employees (except the Mayor and City Council members) utilize the City provided 'employee time clocks' to record the daily start and end times of their regularly scheduled work shift AS WELL AS any time that they are required to perform City related duties at times OTHER THAN their scheduled work shifts. 

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council, to IMMEDIATELY SEEK an acceptable solution to the exorbitant residential Water/Sewer Utility rates currently paid by the City's residential 'customers' to bring those rates 'more in line' with surrounding communities of comparable size.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATEY DIRECT that, when practical, ALL purchases for goods and/or services required by the City that are reasonably expected to exceed $1,000.00, will REQUIRE the implementation of the 'Competitive Bidding Process' requiring a submission of bids by at least two vendors. Exceptions to this directive may be made when procurement of said goods and/or services is declared and/or is considered URGENT or EMERGENCY in nature and approved by at least two City Officials, or when only a single bid is received.

AS YOUR MAYOR, instead of automatically 'renewing' them year after year without question, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY REVIEW ALL existing 'contracts' that the City has for legal services, engineering, consulting, etc., to determine if similar services of comparable quality are available from other sources at a LOWER COST TO TAXPAYERS.

AS YOUR MAYOR, instead of 'Carte Blanche' approval, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY REQUIRE 'LINE ITEM SCRUTINY & REVIEWAL' each month of ALL City expenditures by the ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL.              

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY ASSEMBLE a volunteer 'Citizens  Advisory Committee' consisting of four or six or eight (pick a number) City residents representing the 'PULSE OF THE CITY'  to meet periodically and share their opinions, thoughts, ideas or suggestions with myself, the City Council and/or other City residents so that the efficiency of the delivery of City services, and the daily, overall 'operation' of the City, can be accomplished in a more 'cost effective' manner.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY SEEK to 're-establish' the City's volunteer 'Planning Commission' so that those who 'pay the bills' of the City, will have a 'voice' in the City's future. As it is currently, ONLY the CITY COUNCIL makes that/those 'determination(s)' as to what takes place in the City.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought seek the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY DETERMINE THE FEASABILITY to re-establish an 'Ambulance Station' in the City; thereby greatly REDUCING 'response times' to emergencies in Hamburg and/or the surrounding area; a GREAT BENEFIT to residents in both 'areas'.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY SOLICIT the cooperation of the City and the Hamburg Fire/Rescue Department, to 'sponsor ', at minimal or no cost, an annual (or bi-annual) public Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) class (probably held at the Hamburg Community Hall) in an effort to get more citizens of Hamburg, and the surrounding area, trained in CPR.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY IMPLEMENT and actively support  and participate in Carver County's "COMMUNITIES OF BELONGING" initiative; a concept launched last December that is built around the basis that a community should be a place that welcomes all people and where all people know each other, care about and take care of each other, regardless of what their background or views on various issues.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY DETERMINE if any City resident have a unique medical condition(s), but are not 'computer literate', qualify for 'low cost or no cost' prescriptions, medical equipment, devices or services. If no other means exist for them to gain these benefits (no computer access, not computer literate, no relatives with Internet access, etc.), then the City would 'assist' them in securing these benefits if so qualified.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to develop a Young People/Senior Citizen 'alliance' intended to 'pair up' the youthful members of our community with Senior Citizens (or others that may need some additional periodic 'help' or assistance) with grass cutting, leaf raking, sidewalk shoveling, addressing Christmas cards and other required tasks, etc.; kind of an informal 'Adopt A Grandparent' sort of 'program'. While there would be no charge to the citizen recipient receiving the 'assistance', as a gesture of appreciation and in lieu of any payment, the City would periodically sponsor a 'pizza party' or other 'event' involving the youths as a gesture of our appreciation, at no cost to the persons involved is providing, or receiving, said assistance.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to IMMEDIATELY IMPLEMENT, but NEVER USED, 'LOCAL ACCESS' option/feature called for and as provided in the City's contract with MEDIACOM, thereby allowing City residents the ability to view (and listen to) 'live' City Council Meetings so that the citizens of Hamburg can be fully informed of what is taking place in the City if unable to physically attend City Council and other meetings.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to ensure that the Agendas for each regular City Council Meeting are available on the City's Official Website by 4:30PM the Friday preceeding the City Council meeting. Additionally, the written 'Minutes' and audio of each City Council meeting will also be available by 4:30PM the Friday following the City Council meeting.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council, to continually strive to make as much information regarding what's taking place in the City, available to the public, as possible.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to strongly DISCOURAGE the practice of conducting 'closed' City Council meetings; meetings in which the PUBLIC IS NOT ALLOWED TO ATTEND.

AS YOUR MAYOR, the City of Hamburg will CONTINUE to vigorously support the PROFESSIONAL and DEDICATED men and women of the  CARVER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE, the HAMBURG FIRE/RESCUE DEPARTMENT, the RIDGEVIEW MEDICAL CENTER EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES, and the MINNESOTA STATE PATROL.

AS YOUR MAYOR, the City of Hamburg will vigorously support the CARVER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE "COMMUNITY WATCH PROGRAM" and  strongly encourage City residents to be activate participants.

AS YOUR MAYOR, and for the safety of Hamburg residents and visitors,  I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to authorize the application of sand  as required, to all affected streets during the winter, instead of only applying sand to some intersections in the City as is presently the policy. Further; limited application of salt or other ice melting agent, will be applied as indicated and required to increase resident's safety.

AS YOUR MAYOR, in keeping with my 'PRINCIPLES OF TRANSPARENCY' and with the cooperation of the City Council, the City of Hamburg will HONOR, and PROVIDE, without cost, reasonable requests by City residents for ALL  PUBLIC City information (consistent with appropriate, governing Data Practice laws, rules and regulations), including information regarding the work times/days  records of ALL City employees, and the general, overall  performance of their duties and responsibilities.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council, to
will establish a 'HAMBURG WELCOMING COMMITTEE' that meets with and welcomes new residents to the City of Hamburg and assists them, if so requested, to establish utility and other City services, learn about Internet/Cable TV options, etc., to help make them IMMEDIATELY feel as a part of our City.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought  the cooperation of the City Council, to address the issue of  EXCESSIVE, ONGOING and OUTSTANDING, PAST DUE utility bills of ALL customers; residential and commercial alike. The City accumulating anywhere from FIVE to EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS in PAST DUE UTILITY BILLS EVERY MONTH is TOTALLY
UNACCEPTABLE !!

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council, the City of Hamburg to explore other options for 'operating' of  the Hamburg Community Hall so it doesn't continue to be a 'black hole' for the City of Hamburg. When I was a City Council Member and prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it was reported that the Hamburg Community Hall was LOSING $20,000 TAXPAYER DOLLARS EVERY YEAR !! Such a HUGE LOSS, of TAXPAYER DOLLARS, YEAR AFTER YEAR is NOT
SUSTAINABLE !!

One concept to consider is contracting with an outside 'vendor' to TOTALLY manage the facility and assume TOTAL responsibility for its continued operation and profitability. Other suggestions for ideas from residents are, of course, ALWAYS WELCOME !! We have a lot of 'creative' people in Hamburg; LET'S PUT THAT CREATIVITY TO GOOD USE to benefit OUR City !!

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would NOT routinely vote in matters brought before the City Council; except in the event of an 'unusual matter' or, of course; if there is a "2-2 tie" vote' on a matter being voted on by the City Council.

AS YOUR MAYOR, when a citizen or guest appears before the City Council for whatever reason, I would NOT  use the rude and demeaning term as "THE HOT SEAT" when inviting them to appear before the City Council to express their views. Rather, the City would show them the respect that they deserve;
regardless of who they are or whatever their concern(s) may be.

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the cooperation of the City Council to TOTALLY ABOLISH  the position of 'Deputy' City Clerk. The SAVING OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS by abolishing this UNNEEDED position will be SUBSTANTIAL;  not only in eliminating wages paid, but also because TAXPAYERS WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY the MONTHLY MEDICAL INSURANCE PREMIUMS for this position.

I would have sought to have the 'Deputy' City Clerk position revert back to the 'UTILITY BILLING CLERK' position as it was previously; and initially, intended.

This UNNEEDED position initially began as an individual (Job Title:Utility Billing Clerk) working only a few hours at the beginning of each month to prepare, and send out, the City's utility bills. Slowly, this very necessary Utility Billing Clerk position 'morphed' into a position for which it was never intended; but by NO FAULT OF THE FORMER EMPLOYEE !! The position eventually increased the number of hours worked doing tasks being assigned that really were beyond the scope of the initial position. The position also was a huge, UNNEEDED BURDEN TO TAXPAYERS primarily because of the computerization of the City's utility bills and the EXORBITANT AMOUNT of EXTRA TAXPAYER DOLLARS  it cost CITY TAXPAYERS EACH MONTH FOR EIGHT YEARS because of allowing for the convenient 'absences' for the City Clerk/Treasurer, coupled with the City eventually paying for the FULL COST of the MEDICAL INSURANCE PREMIUM for the former employee holding that position until just recently.

Again, as not only a Mayoral candidate concerned about the  WASTEFUL and UNNECESSARY SPENDING of TAXPAYER DOLLARS, but ALSO speaking as a resident, I am NOT CRITICAL of the former employee that 'filled' that position; I have NOTHING BUT PRAISE for the work she did; doing so, apparently; under 'UNKNOWN, LESS THAN DESIREABLE WORKING CONDITIONS'.

The position should NEVER have been 'expanded' to what it ended up being. It's the old a 'Frog in a Pot of Water' syndrome. The City Council should have 'caught' what was taking place by the City Clerk/Treasurer and the current Mayor, and HALTED IT in it's 'infancy'. But the City Council didn't 'catch' what was taking place; it MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN AGAIN !!

AS YOUR MAYOR, I would have sought the City Council to ensure that employee 'year end pay increases' are not 'automatically given';  they must be EARNED. And, JUSTIFIED.

AS YOUR MAYOR, upon taking Office (if not before) and in an effort to 'Put The Last Six Years Behind Us' and look forward to a NEW and BRIGHTER FUTURE, the information that is currently contained on my Website and associated Webpages about the City of Hamburg, www.HAMBURGMINNESOTA.com, as they appear now, will become, with a few exceptions, pretty much NON-EXISTENT !! It makes MORE sense  to me for us to 'turn the page' and "LOOK TO THE FUTURE" instead of "DWELLING ON WHAT'S TAKEN PLACE IN THE PAST" because; what's taken place in the past cannot be reversed or 'taken back'. It can ONLY be LEARNED  from.

Reading the (no less than) THREE  'Informational Flyers' that I've mailed to ALL Hamburg residences, at MY OWN PERSONAL EXPENSE, (nobody is 'fronting' me ANY money for my Mayoral campaign !!) as well as reading the massive amount of information contained on my very comprehensive and informative Website about the City of Hamburg, dramatically demonstrates the need for NEW LEADERSHIP  of Hamburg's next Mayor; LEADERSHIP  that our City so desperately needs. While NO OTHER CANDIDATE has 'come anywhere close' to providing residents with any ideas or concepts about how to help improve the 'quality of life' for Hamburg residents and to reduce the UNNECESSARY and WASTEFUL SPENDING of TAXPAYER DOLLARSPROVIDE TRANSPARENY of LOCAL GOVERNMENT and HOLD PUBLIC OFFICIALS ACCOUNTABLE, I care enough about Hamburg to have 'spelled out' what leadership and 'fresh ideas' I can bring to the Office of the Hamburg Mayor. I care enough to have taken the time and exert the effort that is necessary, to 'devise a plan' to get Hamburg 'back on track' after six years of our City 'bobbing like a cork in the ocean' because of the POOR LEADERSHIP AT CITY HALL !!

Also, ASK YOURSELF, how many other Candidates took the time necessary to design 'mailers' containing information that RESIDENTS NEED TO KNOW about what's been taking place in OUR City for the PAST SIX YEARS !! Even MORE IMPORTANT is how many candidates have actually taken the time to provide City residents with NO LESS THAN THREE 'Informational Flyers' and a very COMPREHENSIVE WEBSITE so that when Hamburg residents go to the polls on Election Day, they'll be armed with PERTINENT, DOCUMENTED INFORMATION that will allow them to make an 'INFORMED DECISION' as to who should lead OUR City for the next four years; based on FACTS, instead of innuendo' and 'bar room gossip'.

The 'points' outlined in "MY VISION" for the City of Hamburg, while flexible; are at least a 'starting point' to provide City residents with a general idea of what we are capable of accomplishing, TOGETHER, for the 566 fine residents that call OUR City THEIR 'home'.

And, if you haven't 'guessed it' by now from reading the 'Informational Flyers' that I've mailed out to you, from visiting my very detailed Website about the City of Hamburg as well from the information contained on this particular Webpage, I'm NOT a ONE MAN BAND !! I respectfully ask that you acknowledge the number of times the above statements and information contain references like,"In cooperation with the City Council ......."

Folks; this Was SUPPOSED To Be A COMBINED EFFORT between the CITY RESIDENTS, the CITY COUNCIL, and the CITY MAYOR to ensure the future prosperity and success of the CITY that ALL of us living here, call 'HOME' !! And If YOU  Have Any 'Thoughts And/Or Ideas', PLEASE SEND THEM TO ME At THEDELTASHOW@gmail.com
