COMMENTS I'VE RECEIVED SINCE
I FILED FOR MAYOR OF HAMBURG:

FACEBOOK Post Received:
"You would be an excellent Mayor, my friend !"

Text message received:
"Hope you're doing well. You got my vote."

Text Message Received upon announcing my
HAMBURG MAYORAL CAMPAIGN:
"I saw that coming !"

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

Test Messages Received About The Flier Initially Mailed Out:
"Got your flyer, very informative."

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

Text Message Received About
The Current Hamburg Mayor Chris Lund:
"That lying snake should be tarred & feathered
(and run) outta town."

Text Messages Received about My Filing For Hamburg Mayor:
"Good luck on your  mayoral race. I'd vote for you if I could."

After Learning That I Had Filed For Mayor Of Hamburg, I Received the Following E-mail From A Hamburg Resident Who Had Contemplted Filing For One Of The Two Upcoming
City Council Vacancies:
"Hi Dick- That's great to hear. No, I won't be running. But here's something you can look into. I was looking at the agenda from the meeting on 16th. Why are they buying the new maintenance guy a new truck? Why do we have to spend our tax dollars buying him a new truck when the one he drives seems to be okay. Plus now he's getting a new laptop as well? Seems like he's getting special treatment because he's Tamera's family member.

Also why are we rekeying the city buildings.. Is there a concern that someone maybe accessing the buildings? DId Greg not return his keys? Did New Guy loose his keys? Or are we just wasting money rekeying a building that doesn't need to be rekeyed?

And why are we hiring a PT maintenance worker? Is there really THAT much work that needs to be done to sustain a full time and part time city workers?

Also what are all these claims for that have been made? $44k this month? I'd like to know what all that money is from.

I'm not sure if the city has noticed but houses are going up for sale at a fast rate around here and I for one have been considering moving out myself. It seems they've forgotten that we're a town of 500 people not 500,000.

We don't need all these expenses."

E-mail received from out of state:
"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."

E-mail Received After Hearing My 09-14-22 Internet Show:
"Hi Richard, Good Luck on your run for Mayor, we know that you would do a great job."

E-mail Received After Hearing My 09-21-22 Internet Show:
"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."

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

Partial Image Of The Website Of The Minnesota Secretary of State's Office Showing Candidate Filings For The Mayor And TWO City Councilmember Positions.
I know nothing about candidates MITCH POLZIN or ANTHONY VAN HAFTEN. Given the 'history' of how the City WASTES TAXPAYER DOLLARS, City Council candidate KEVIN SUBART, with his 'background' in accounting, would be a TREMENDOUS ASSET to the City in helping 'monitor' how the City spends your TAXPAYER DOLLARS !! I also don't know much about ERIC POPPLER (not 'Popper' as shown above); a 'GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB' incumbent who is seeking re-election to the Hamburg City Council.

As for RICHARD MALZ, at the end of 2021 he applied to be appointed to fill the remainder of the term of Hamburg City Councilmember SCOTT FELTMANN who passed away on December 2, 2021 before his term expired. The Hamburg City Council soundly REJECTED
Malz's application; a wise decision on the part of the members of the City Council. That decision, in itself; should send a 'STRONG MESSAGE' to Hamburg residents: If the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL 'DIDN'T WANT' MALZ INVOLVED IN 'CITY GOVERNMENT'; NEITHER SHOULD CITY RESIDENTS !!

From my experience, one would think that MALZ was CHRIS LUND'S 'father' !! And like LUND, I could devote a COMPLETE WEBPAGE about my 'dreadful experiences' with MALZ, and what I know about him. REMEMBER: I was a City Councilmember for four years when MALZ used to be the Mayor; I witnessed his 'behavior'; I 'know all about him' !!

BELIEVE ME: MALZ is NOT  someone that we want again involved in making decisions for the City or the continuing, wasteful spending of TAXPAYER DOLLARS !! The current City Council agreed.

I ALSO DISTINCTLY REMEMBER during a 'year end' budget meeting, MALZ arbitrarily INCREASING the amount dedicated to 'legal fees' for the following year, to somewhere in the neighborhood of $9,000.00 !! It's all 'on (very poor quality) tape'.

HAMBURG RESIDENTS HAVE TO KNOW that, as Hamburg's Mayor at that time; MALZ basically 'GAVE THE CITY'S CHECKBOOK', along with UNLIMITED 'CARTE BLANCHE' AUTHORITY, to then HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL MEMBER CHRIS LUND, in their (FAILED) effort to 'unseat' me as a fellow City Councilmember because of 'all the questions I was asking' about how the City was 'THROWING AWAY' TAXPAYER DOLLARS !!

Between LUND, MALZ and, yes; even the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN 'contract' CITY ATTORNEY, their COMBINED,  but highly UNSUCCESSFUL 'actions' to 'FORCE MY RESIGNATION', well; that matter ALONECOST HAMBURG TAXPAYERS $50,000.00 IN LEGAL FEES; PROVING that LUND, MALZ & the 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY, were ALL 'WRONG' !!

(Conversely, I spent only (about) $2,500.00 of MY OWN MONEY to 'PROVE' that I was 100% 'RIGHT' !! And as EVERYONE is aware, I COMPLETED my ENTIRE four year City Councilmember term !!)

And now that MALZ has 'found out' that I'm seeking to be elected as Hamburg's next Mayor, be 'alert'' for, and wary of, an aggressive upcoming 'write in' campaign this fall for Hamburg Mayor; most likely by MALZ.

There's not a lot of good to say about somebody, ANYBODY; who DOESN'T file for an elected office BEFORE the filing deadline, and then, when they see who has filed for a particular office (me), 'scurries around' trying to 'drum up votes for themself' to be eleced to an office they apparently didn't want initially !! ANYBODY can 'see through' that 'ruse' !!

DON'T 'BUY IT' !!
