NARRATIVE
(Noun; a spoken or written account of connected events; a story.)

The average citizen harbors a strong mistrust towards government officials and employees. Because of this mistrust, there are ethics and values in place to provide much needed accountability between the general public and the local, state and federal administration. This solidifies the well-known fact that Public Administrators are held at a much higher standard, or at least; should be, with regard to ethics than your everyday citizen. Why is ethics in Public Service important? Why is it necessary? Why is it an invaluable tool? Ethics in Public Service is a crucial part of the day-to-day activities that Public Administrators enact.

There is absolutely no room for anything other than operating with full transparency.

Ethics embodies honesty, accountability, integrity, empathy and just knowing the difference between what is right and what is wrong. This includes operating strictly as a policy-driven individual. Merriam Webster Dictionary defines ethics as the discipline dealing with what is good and what is bad. Many corporations, organizations and especially government entities create strong mission statements to establish strict company values and ethics. These values and ethics set the tone, framework and character for the organizations and its employees. Granted, much of the ethical rhetoric has fallen by the way side, with many public officials being plastered with controversy in the media. The public demands answers and justice from all Public Servants who are involved with such controversy. 

Some may get ethics and morals misconstrued. Although similar, there is a difference between these two entities. Morals, generally describe one’s personal beliefs and values as to what is right and wrong, whereas ethics refers to a wide range of moral principles solely based on a gray area of questionable activity. So, what is moral compass, and how does it fit into Public Service? A moral compasses is a tool to help navigate personal issues which affect any individual. These personal issues can include anything regarding finances; failure to pay income taxes, questionable purchases and money laundering. Moral compasses also deal with issues of health; drug use, alcohol abuse, obesity and unhealthy lifestyles.

There is much to consider when Public Servants are in uncompromising situations involving embezzling, misappropriation of funds, theft of property and so forth. Thomas Jefferson once famously noted, “When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself public property.” This statement could not be truer today, and surely ethically correct. Public Servants are operating 'public property'. They should be working in a transparent manner, with morals, integrity, honesty and putting the public’s trust above all things. This is what Jefferson meant when he proclaimed, “The basic obligation of Public Service.”  Once lost, is it possible to gain the public’s trust back? Except in very rare and unusual circumstances, regaining public trust is, at best, doubtful. So it is in the City of Hamburg, Minnesota; Population 500 (+ or-).

In my view, it all started in 2014 because of the deleterious actions of a single individual, their CITY CLERK/TREASURER, JEREMY GRUENHAGEN. And, that's when all of the other Hamburg PUBLIC OFFICIALS; much to the detriment of the City and its residents, 'jumped on the band wagon' like rats following the Pied Piper; (a person who entices others to follow him), and everything began to 'go downhill'. There's also no question whatsoever in my mind that it was Hamburg's 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY, KELLY C. DOHM of the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN, who was 'cheering everybody on' and was 'instrumental' in ALSO intentionally involving former CARVER COUNTY SHERIFF JAMES OLSON and current CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ, in her 'zeal', combined with the determination of the other Hamburg PUBLIC OFFICIALS, trying desperately, and unsuccessfully, to force me off the Hamburg City Council before my four year term expired.

Instead of 'forcing me out', it ended up being "DO NOT PASS GO; BUT COLLECT $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS FOR YOUR LAW FIRM" !!

Being a former Hamburg City Council Member (2013-2016), I was keenly aware of the unbelievable manner that Hamburg City Officials literally wasted taxpayer dollars. That reason, alone, was one (of many) 'deciding factors' in my filing for election to the Hamburg City Council in August of 2012. But there also were many other factors that solidified my decision to enter 'City Government': Make the community better, help those less fortunate, improve the 'quality of life' of residents, etc., etc., etc.

In November 2012, I was elected to a four year term and, believe me; those four years were certainly an 'eye opening' experience; to say the least. It didn't take me long to realize that if you are a member of the Hamburg City Council and choose NOT to be a 'member'' of the "GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB"', you'll certainly find out, in short order, what local, small town 'politics' is all about. (Round Peg; Square Hole.)

And how 'ugly and nasty' it can be.

I 'did my time' on the Hamburg City Council and had pretty much 'turned the page' on what was one of the most disappointing (and 'eye opening') experiences in all of my seventy-seven years on God's 'Good Earth'. I had NEVER, in all of my life, met such viscous, and in some cases, downright IGNORANT, self-centered people of such questionable character !! And they ALL were receiving MY (and other taxpayer's) dollars !! What I observed take place, and knowing that I had 'zero chance' of improving what was taking place, I simply 'disassociated' myself from people of so little character that I was 'forced' to be around; for those four years. I basically 'ignored' the City of Hamburg for about the next couple of years after my term expired. But that changed a little over a year ago; 'history' (in Hamburg) was about to 'repeat itself'.

In the fall of 2019, I received a City 'flyer' mailed out to all City residents containing various pieces of news and tidbits of general information. One particular 'tidbit of information had to do with the upcoming City budget for 2020; one of my 'favorite' categories. Among other topics that caught my attention was, "In regards to lawyer fees, that one is going to depend on the pending litigation with property owned in the heart of Hamburg. We are working diligently with the city attorney to get within the ballpark of potential legal fees."

I found that statement interesting for two reasons: First, the 'city attorney' (who was provided 'by contract' from the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT and SJODIN), walked away with (about)  $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS  in legal fees when the rest of the City Council was (first 'covertly; then 'overtly') vigorously (and viciously) trying to (unsuccessfully) 'oust' me off the City Council during the last 2.5 years of my term.  Wasn't gonna happen !!

Secondly, that same Waconia based law firm, MELCHERT, HUBERT and SJODIN, was, once again, 'supplying' the 'contract attorney' to 'represent' the City of Hamburg in the 'pending litigation' referenced in the Fall 2019 'City Flyer' and regarding (land) property OWNED BY A HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBER !!

Finding out about the 'pending lawsuit' involving a current Hamburg City Council Member, piqued my interest. I had previously heard 'rumblings' about some type of 'disagreement' between the City and the City Council Member about property he owned in the City, but I thought that 'issue' had been resolved'. Apparently it wasn't.

On October 15, 2019, as a concerned and taxpaying resident, I send an (innocent) e-mail to City of Hamburg seeking information about the 'pending lawsuit' against the City of Hamburg and asked if the City had been formally 'served' with a civil lawsuit and requested a copy of the lawsuit if, in fact, the City had been served.

Later that same day of my request, I received an Official City E-mail from Gruenhagen stating, "Since the City is involved in a pending litigation I will need to confer with our ('by contract' from the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT and SJODIN) attorney. Once I hear back from them, I will provide you with the information that is available to the public."

Now, by his actions and words, Gruenhagen has now involved the 'contract City Attorney'; an attorney supplied by the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT and SJODIN in what is about to 'play out' over the next several months.

Six days later, on October 21, 2019 HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER sent me an Official City E-mail stating, "Since the pleadings have been filed, you can get them from the Carver County Court Administrator". Gruenhagen's e-mail continues, "The City has been served with pleadings, and this matter is ongoing."

But, in fact, and according to the Carver County District Court, the 'pleadings' had NOT been 'filed', and GRUENHAGEN KNEW THAT !!

The DECEIT, DECEPTION, DISHONESTY, COVER-UP' and WITHOLDING PUBLIC INFORMATION, from taxpayers by HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, begins. What took place is VERY CLEAR: GRUENHAGEN LIED, he GOT 'CAUGHT' and then the OTHER CITY OFFICIALS, who knew, or should have known, what was taking place; FAILED TO TAKE ANY ACTION; THEY, too, all GOT 'CAUGHT' !! Doesn't that make the ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL 'ACCOMPLICES' ??

LYING, DECEIT, DECEPTION and DISHONESTY BY PUBLIC OFFICIALS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE !!  CITIZENS SHOULD NOT BE EXPECTED TO, and WILL NOT ACCEPT, PUBLIC OFFICIALS WHO ARE DISHONEST. PERIOD !!

Gruenhagen's INTENTIONAL, FABRICATED, FALSE and DECEPTIVE statement was later INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED by the CARVER COUNTY DISTRICT COURT, NUMEROUS TIMES, to be a UNTRUE and FALSE STATEMENT. Gruenhagen would later IMPEACH HIS OWN CHARACTER, HONESTY AND CREDIBILITY by later INDICATING PUBLICLY that he KNEW that the civil lawsuit against the city of Hamburg had NOT been 'filed' with the (Carver County District) Court Administrator'; as he had FALSELY and FRAUDULENTLY stated in his October 21, 2019 e-mail.

As evidenced by documents and other information already submitted,
HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, a PUBLIC OFFICER of the CITY OF HAMBURG
is accused of violating
MINNESOTA STATUE 609.43 - MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE
by committing the following offenses:
(Count 1) KNOWINGLY, and INTENTIONALLY, FABRICATED an OFFICIAL CITY DOCUMENT, which

(Count 2) KNOWINGLY and INTENTIONALLY contained  FALSE, FABRICATED, and FRAUDULENT information that he KNEW TO BE FALSE and FABRICATED, and

(Count 3) PREVENTING and REFUSING a taxpaying City resident, from RECEIVING PUBLIC INFORMATION; Public Information to which taxpaying City residents are
                ENTITLED TO RECEIVE, and

(Count 4) When questioned regarding the existence of the requested information, INTENTIONALLY and with MALACE LIED to a taxpaying  City resident who is entitled to
                know the information that was requested from the City of Hamburg, the status and whereabouts of the information requested; thereby violating the Hamburg City
                Clerk/Treasurer's Oath of Office.

As this Webpage is CONTINUALLY BEING UPDATED, PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER for additional information and details about WHAT ELSE TOOK PLACE as the result of the actions of the PUBLIC OFFICERS of the City of Hamburg. You'll learn and much more information and details about HOW the REFUSAL of CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ, and other PUBLIC OFFICIALS to fully employ the 'system' designed to PROTECT THE PUBLIC, DETECT,
BRING TO JUSTICE AND HOLD ACCOUNTABLE, those LAWYERS and other PUBLIC OFFICERS who violate the law (and the PUBLIC TRUST), FAILED MISERABLY !!

The HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, A PUBLIC OFFICER, INTENTIONALLY VIOLATED A PROVISION IN THE "MINNESOTA
** CRIMINAL **  CODE OF CONDUCT" (MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43 - MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE) Because Of His Behavior.

The HAMBURG MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL, also PUBLIC OFFICERS, REFUSED to take any action !!

I forwarded to, and asked for, CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ to investigate the IREFFUTABLE & OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE submitted to him about what was taking place in the CITY OF HAMBURG involving its PUBLIC OFFICERS, INCLUDING the HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER and 'contract' CITY ATTORNEY.

CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY METZ  REFUSED to take any action; presumably because of the IDENTITY, STATUS and POSITION of those individuals involved, accused, would be revealed.

Unless I Don't Know How To Comprehend The Written Word, Page 5 Of The Minnesota Grand Jury Guide, Section I-A REQUIRES COUNTY ATTORNEY METZ To Present Evidence To A Grand Jury  Involving "...THE WILLFUL and CORRUPT MISCONDUCT of ALL PUBLIC OFFICIALS HOLDING OFFICE IN THE COUNTY."


So, we have PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT taking place not only in the CITY OF HAMBURG, but now, also by CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ (and let's not forget DEPUTY CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY PETER IVY) for REFUSING TO IMPARTALLY DO THEIR JOB, as REQUIRED by MINNESOTA STATUTE 628.61, BECAUSE of the OTHER PUBLIC OFFICIALS INVOLVED !! WHY do we even have laws if they're NOT going to be ENFORCED FAIRLY and EQUALLY ?? Enforcement and prosecution MUST NOT be based on the identity, status and 'position' of those individuals involved and accused !! ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER will tell you that  !!


Not since the likes of former SCOTT COUNTY ATTORNEY KATHLEEN MORRIS and former CARVER COUNTY CHIEF DEPUTY SHERIFF JAMES CASTLEBERRY, has Carver County seen this degree and level of MALFEASANCE, NONFEASANCE and MISFEASANCE by PUBLIC OFFICIALS !!  

Also, many of the residents of Carver County are UNAWARE that CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ is partially responsible for us having to
PAY OUT $450,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS   to the parents of a 16-year-old fatally shot by deputies in July 2018, to settle a suit they filed against
CARVER COUNTY OFFICIALS for releasing private records about their son. (For more information about thAT, PLEASE CLICK HERE.)
And, NO 'SANCTIONS' ??



Information regarding MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICER was forwarded to MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL KEITH ELLISON asking
Him to direct the MINNESOTA BUREAU OF CRIMINAL APPREHENSION to investigate not only what has taken place in the CITY OF HAMBURG
by its CITY CLERK/TREASURER but also, now, to INVESTIGATE WHAT'S TAKEN PLACE  WITHIN THE CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE.

MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL ELLISON, to no one's surprise or amazement, REFUSED TO TAKE ANY ACTION; again, presumably because of the IDENTITY, STATUS and POSITION of those individuals involved and accused. (When requested, BCA special agents investigate cases where a conflict of interest may exist for the local law enforcement agency.) The Minnesota 'STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS'  for CRIMINAL CHARGES EXPIRES OCTOBER 22, 2022; and, of course; THEY ALL KNOW THAT !!

The information about what was taking place in the CITY OF HAMBURG and now  ALSO INVOLVES THE CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE was also FORWARDED to the MINNESOTA LAWYERS PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY BOARD/OFFICE OF LAWYERS PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY; the state agency that is supposed to 'protect' citizens from the UNSCRUPULOUS, PREJUDICIAL AND DISHONEST LAWYERS that we've all heard and read about. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE  THE LETTERS BETWEEN US. YOU'LL BE SHOCKED !!
SYNOPSYS
(Noun; a brief summary or general survey of something.)

Based on just these three pieces of IRRUFUTABLE EVIDENCE shown above, coupled with AT LEAST THREE MORE CONTACTS WITH THE CARVER COUNTY DISTRICT COURT advising me that NO FILINGS, of any kind, EXISTED each additional time that I checked, it is CLEARLY EVIDENT that HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN WILLFULLY, WANTONLY and VOLUNTARILY, COMMITTED NUMEROUS, INTENTIONAL VIOLATIONS of the MINNESOTA CRIMINAL CODE; CHAPTER 609, specifically; MINNSOTA STATUTE 609.43 - MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICIAL OR EMPLOYEE. (Please see the cited MINNESOTA STATUTE in the right margin of this Webpage.)

At all times material herein, the other City Officials of the City of Hamburg, knew, or should have known, about the commission of CRIMINAL ACTS by the Hamburg City/Clerk/Treasurer, yet; they TOOK NO ACTION.

Instead of holding the City of Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer for his CRIMINAL ACTS, the Hamburg Mayor and Hamburg City Council Members voted to 'award' their City Clerk/Treasurer Jeremy Gruenhagen for his actions by APPROVING a SALARY INCREASE of 4% for the upcoming 2020 calendar year, and imposed NO SANCTIONS of Gruenhagen for his intentional, CRIMINAL ACTIONS !!

Because the Hamburg Mayor, Christopher Lund and City Council Members Buckentin, Tracy, Poppler and Feltmann REFUSED TO ACT APPROPRIATELY when learning the Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer had INTENTIONALLY VIOLATED THE LAW, I contacted Carver County Attorney, Mark Metz, the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of Carver County.

The 'record' CLEARLY SHOWS that much of what has taken place is because  CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ 'shirked' his STATUATORY DUTY and OBLIGATION and, much to the dismay, disgust, and expense to, Carver County residents, he also OBSTRUCTED the ADMINISTRATION of JUSTICE by REFUSING TO RESPOND APPROPRIATELY, IMPARTIALLY and RESPONSIBLY, as REQUIRED BY MINNESOTA STATE LAW, because of the IDENTITY, STATUS and POSITION of those individuals, who are PUBLIC OFFICERS and are PAID WITH TAXPAYER DOLLARS, are involved in, and accused of, WRONGDOING !!
Ironically, several weeks AFTER HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN AUTHORED and TENDERED his October 21, 2019 e-mail message (an OFFICIAL CITY OF HAMBURG DOCUMENT)  containing FALSE, FRAUDULENT, FABRICATED and MISLEADING INFORMATION, he would readily, voluntarily and PUBLICLY STATE and INDICATE that he was fully aware that the civil lawsuit against the City of Hamburg had, indeed NOT BEEN FILED as he wrongfully and INTENTIONALLY LIED ABOUT, as stated in his October 21, 2019 OFFICIAL CITY OF HAMBURG e-mail; thereby INTENTIONALLY, WANTONLY, VOLUNTARILY and WILLFULLY, VIOLATING MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43 - MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE.
MINNESOTA 2020 STATUTES

609.43 MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC 
        OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE

A public officer or employee who does any of the following, for which no other sentence is specifically provided by law, may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than one year or to payment of a fine of not more than $3,000, or both:

   (1) intentionally fails or refuses to perform a known mandatory, nondiscretionary, ministerial duty of the office or employment within the time or in the manner required by law; or

   (2) in the capacity of such officer or employee, does an act knowing it is in excess of lawful authority or knowing it is forbidden by law to be done in that capacity; or

    (3) under pretense or color of official authority intentionally and unlawfully injures another in the other's person, property, or rights; or

    (4) in the capacity of such officer or employee, makes a return, certificate, official report, or other like document having knowledge it is false in any material respect.

CONCLUSION
(Noun; a judgment or decision reached by reasoning.)










Tell a friend about this page
Evidence displayed above, in addition to other CORROBORATING EVIDENCE and INFORMATION previously submitted, proves UNEQUIVOCALLY and BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, that JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, a PUBLIC OFFICER and performing in his capacity as HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, INTENTIONALLY and with MALACE, acted in a DISHONEST, DECEPTIVE and UNTRUTHFUL manner and by his words, misdeeds and actions, and thereby is alleged to have committed the GROSS MISDEMEANOR CRIME of MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICER in VIOLATION of MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43.

Secondly, JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, a PUBLIC OFFICER and performing in his capacity as HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, INTENTIONALLY and with MALACE, is alleged to have committed the act of MALFEASANCE by WILLFULLY and INTENTIONALLY committing UNLAWFUL or WRONGFUL acts in the performance of a PUBLIC OFFICIAL's duties which are outside the scope of the authority of the PUBLIC OFFICIAL and which infringes on the rights of any person or entity, in VIOLATION of MINNESOTA STATUTE 351.14 Subdivision 2.

Thirdly, JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, a PUBLIC OFFICER and performing in his capacity as HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, INTENTIONALLY and with MALACE, is alleged to have committed the act of NONFEASANCE by WILLFULLY and INTENTIONALLY failing to perform a specific act which is a required part of the duties a PUBLIC OFFICIAL, in VIOLATION of MINNESOTA STATUTE 351.14 Subdivision 3.

Fourthly, JEREMY GRUENHAGEN, a PUBLIC OFFICER and performing in his capacity as HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, INTENTIONALLY and with MALACE, is alleged to have committed the act of MISFEASANCE by WILLFULLY and INTENTIONALLY negligently performing, or negligently failing to perform, a specific act which is a required part of the duties of a PUBLIC OFFICER, in VIOLATION of MINNESOTA STATUTE 351.14 Subdivision 4.

And then, when all of the CLEAR and CONVINCING, IRREFUTABLE, INCONTROVERTIBLE and INDISPUTABLE facts and evidence of what's been taking place in the City Of Hamburg (now for) OVER A YEAR is forwarded to CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ, he REFUSES TO INVESTIGATE OR TAKE ANY ACTION , (EVEN THOUGH MINNESOTA STATUTES REQUIRE HIM TO TAKE ACTION), because of his PERSONAL and PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIPS with, and the IDENTITIES of, the other PERSONS INVOLVED and the IDENTITIES of other PERSONS who will be EXPOSED !!

MINNESOTA
GRAND JURY GUIDE

I. Purpose of Convening a Grand Jury in Minnesota

A. Overview

The primary function of a grand jury is to review evidence presented by a prosecutor and determine whether there is probable cause to return an indictment.  

In Minnesota, grand juries perform the following functions:

* Bring charges.  Indictments must be used by a prosecutor if the offense charged is punishable by life imprisonment (Minn. Stat. §§ 609.185; 609.385), and may, at the option of the prosecutor, be used in other cases.  Minnesota Rules Of Criminal Procedure 17.01.

* Inquiries regarding prisons and public officials.  Pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 628.61, the grand jury shall inquire into:

▪ The condition of every person imprisoned on a criminal charge in the county, and not indicted;

▪ The condition and management of the public prisons in the county; and

▪ The willful and corrupt misconduct of ALL PUBLIC OFFICIALS holding office in the county.

B. Prosecutor Presents Evidence

The prosecutor presents evidence in order to establish there is probable cause to believe an offense has been committed and the defendant committed it.  Grand juries give prosecutors the ability to subpoena witnesses, who have to testify under oath, and to subpoena the production of evidence.  The evidence can be almost anything – testimony from witnesses, documents, video recordings, tape recordings, the results of scientific tests, photographs, etc.
MINNESOTA 2020 STATUTES

628.61 MATTERS INQUIRED INTO
       The grand jury shall inquire:

       (1) into the condition of every person imprisoned on a criminal charge triable in the county, and not indicted;

        (2) into the condition and management of the public prisons in the county; and

         (3) into the willful and corrupt misconduct in office of ALL PUBLIC OFFICERS in the county.

HOW CAN ANYBODY MISINTERPRET THIS STATEMENT ??

The HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, Now Has 'INVOLVED' The 'CONTRACT' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY Provided By The Waconia Based Law Firm Of Hubert, Melchert & Sjodin In Their INTENTIONAL DECEPTION.

HOW CAN ANYBODY
MISINTERPRET THIS STATEMENT ??
To no one's surprise, the MINNESOTA LAWYERS PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY BOARD/OFFICE OF LAWYERS PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY  REFUSED to INVESTIGATE OR TAKE ANY ACTION; presumably because of the IDENTITY, STATUS and POSITION of those individuals involved and accused. THEY NEVER EVEN CALLED ME !!

The 'Common Thread', here; is that, with the exception of the Minnesota Lawyer's Professional Responsibility Board, ALL of
the PERSONS INVOLVED  in WHAT'S TAKING PLACE IN THE CITY OF HAMBURG, are ALL PUBLIC OFFICERS !!

What a HORRIBLE & CORRUPT 'SYSTEM' We Have IN CARVER COUNTY To
Keep Our ELECTED, And OTHER PUBLIC OFFICIALS, Honest & Accountable !!

At all times material herein, Jeremy Gruenhagen was, and currently is, the City Clerk/Treasurer of the City of Hamburg. As such, Jeremy Gruenhagen is designated as a 'PUBLIC OFFICER' of the City of Hamburg and serves at the pleasure of, and is wholly, and directly, accountable to the elected Mayor, and four elected City Council Members of the City of Hamburg.

At all times material herein, the elected Mayor of the City of Hamburg was/is Christopher Lund and the City Council Members for the City were/are Eric Poplar, Tim Tracy, Jason Buckentin and Scott Feltmann. Because of their elected position as well as their statutory duties and responsibilities, BOTH the Mayor of the City of Hamburg, as well as the four elected City Council Members for the City of Hamburg, are designated as PUBLIC OFFICERS of the City of Hamburg.

At all times material herein, the City of Hamburg 'contracted/contracts' with the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN for legal services and legal advice in matters relating to the City of Hamburg. In the past the primary lawyer supplied to the City of Hamburg by the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN was ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM; believed to be a 'partner' is said law firm. It is believed that in addition to 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM, other lawyers affiliated the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN were also supplied to the City of Hamburg from time to time.

At all times material herein and because of the contract for legal services that existed/exists between the City of Hamburg and the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN, lawyers affiliated with the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN, representing, working on behalf of and being paid by the City of Hamburg, including 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM, is/are designated as PUBLIC OFFICERS of the City of Hamburg.

At all times material herein, Gruenhagen, acting in his official capacity as a salaried PUBLIC OFFICER for the City of Hamburg, is an employee of the City of Hamburg, as well.

In that capacity as a PUBLIC OFFICER and EMPLOYEE for the City of Hamburg during the time period beginning in approximately September and October 2019 and perhaps after conferring with the HAMBURG MAYOR and/or the 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM, Gruenhagen, INTENTIONALLY and with MALACE, WILLFULLY and VOLUNTARILY  AUTHORED, and TENDERED, an e-mail message, an OFFICIAL CITY OF HAMBURG DOCUMENT, relating to a request for PUBLIC INFORMATION regarding a pending civil lawsuit against the City of Hamburg. Said document AUTHORED and TENDERED by HAMBURG CITY CLERK JEREMY GRUENHGEM, contained FALSE, FRAUDULENT, FABRICATED and MISLEADING INFORMATION in an COVERT ATTEMPT to PREVENT or CAUSE TO BE  PREVENTED, or DELAYED, receipt of the requested PUBLIC INFORMATION being sought by the requestor. A copy of the FRAUDULENT e-mail, AUTHORED and TENDERED by HAMBURG CITY CLERK JEREMY GRUENHGEN KNOWING that it contained FALSE INFORMATION, is shown below:

The INCONTROVERTIBLE EVIDENCE CLEARLY SHOWS That The HAMBURG CITY/CLERK TREASURER  INTENTIONALLY VIOLATED THE LAW; (MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43 - MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE) By INTENTIONALLY Committing The Offenses Summarized Above.  HOWEVER, If He ACTED AT THE DIRECTION OF OTHER CITY  OF HAMBURG & CARVER COUNTY  PUBLIC OFFICIALS, The City Of Hamburg and Carver County  Have  A New, EVEN MORE SERIOUS, "SET OF PROBLEMS".

In reality, it appears, at least to me, that HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN is a HAMBURG CITY OFFICIAL and EMPLOYEE that lacks any integrity. An 'honest' person would REFUSE to 'go along with' what's taken place in the City of Hamburg. And, because he's been led to believe he will ESCAPE PROSECUTION, he, like the other PUBLIC OFFICIALS involved, truly believe that they are 'invincible'.

Well; we'll just have to 'wait and see;' about that. In the meantime, please CLICK HERE to see the definition of 'CONSPIRACY'.

Because  CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ REFUSED TO CALL A GRAND JURY, Where Persons Involved Are
REQUIRED TO PROVIDE TESTIMONY, UNDER OATH, The TAXPAYERS Are NOT ALLOWED TO KNOW THE TRUTH !!

That, In My Mind,  Constitutes Of A  'COVER UP' !! (Please CLICK HERE.) I'm Certain That The United States Attorney General Merrick Garland Will Be Interested In That. And I Believe That United States Attorney General Merrick Garland Will ALSO Interested In The OUTRAGEOUS REFUSAL Of MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL KEITH ELLISON to act appropriately, lawfully and responsibly !!

THROUGHOUT  THE UNITED STATES ARE BEING ATTACKED, INJURED AND KILLED.

WHEN PROSECUTORS, SUCH AS MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL KEITH ELLISON AND CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ,  INSTEAD
OF BEING FAIR AND IMPARTIAL, SUCCUMB TO PREJUDICIAL FAVORITISM OF THOSE WHO BREAK THE LAW BECAUSE OF WHO THEY
ARE OR WHO THEY 'KNOW',  IT'S TIME TO "SHUT OFF THE LIGHTS, CLOSE THE DOOR, PUT THE KEY IN THE LOCK" AND
TURN OUR GREAT COUNTRY OVER TO THE THUGS AND CORRUPT POLITICIANS.

DEFINITIONS OF 'CORRUPT':
A form of dishonesty or criminal offense undertaken by a person or organization entrusted
with a position of authority, to acquire illicit benefit or abuse power for one's private gain.

Guilty of dishonest practices, (like the HAMBURG CELLPHONE 'caper') such as bribery; lacking integrity; crooked.

Dishonest or illegal behavior especially by powerful people (such as government officials).

IT'S REALLY VERY SIMPLE ......
EVEN IN HAMBURG, Everyone Expects PUBLIC OFFICIALS To Be IMPECCABLY HONEST, UNWAVERINGLY TRUTHFUL, HIGHLY ETHICAL  and METICULOUSLY PROFESSIONAL
At All Times.

But What Happens, As In The Case Of The City
Of Hamburg, When Those PUBLIC OFFICIALS Decide To ABUSE THEIR POSITION and
AUTHORITY, and TOTALLY DISREGARD The HONESTY, TRUTHFULNESS, ETHICS
And PROFESSIONAL DEMEANOR
That Is  REQUIRED, And EXPECTED, Of Them ?

Even Worse Is The Fact That The 'SYSTEM'
That Is Supposed To DETECT and ABATE This
TOTAL DISREGARD, By PUBLIC OFFICIALS,
For COMPLIANCE With The LAW, ACCEPTED
And EXPECTED STANDARDS, FAILED
MISERABLY Because Of WHO IS INVOLVED;
Much To The DETRIMENT OF TAXPAYERS, !!

Take Part In A Survey About What's Taken Place In
The City Of Hamburg (Minnesota) By Its
(and other) PUBLIC OFFICIALS !!
MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43 - MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE                             

  A public officer or employee who does any of the following, for which no other sentence is specifically provided by law, may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than one year or to payment of a fine of not more than $3,000, or both:

  (1) intentionally fails or refuses to perform a known mandatory, nondiscretionary, ministerial duty of the office or employment within the time or in the manner required by law; or

  (2) in the capacity of such officer or employee, does an act knowing it is in excess of lawful authority or knowing it is forbidden by law to be done in that capacity; or

  (3) under pretense or color of official authority intentionally and unlawfully injures another in the other's person, property, or rights; or

  (4) in the capacity of such officer or employee, makes a return, certificate, official report, or other like document having knowledge it is false in any material respect.



Here's What The MINNESOTA GRAND JURY GUIDE Also States:

* Inquiries regarding prisons and public officials.  Pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 628.61, the grand jury shall inquire into:

▪ The condition of every person imprisoned on a criminal charge in the county, and not indicted;

▪ The condition and management of the public prisons in the county; and

▪ The WILLFUL AND CORRUPT MISCONDUCT IN OFFICE OF ALL PUBLIC OFFICERS IN THE COUNTY. 

MINNESOTA STATUTE 628.61 - MATTERS INQUIRED INTO

The grand jury shall inquire:

(1) into the condition of every person imprisoned on a criminal charge triable in the county, and not indicted;         

(2) into the condition and management of the public prisons in the county; and                                                         

  (3) into the WILLFUL AND CORRUPT MISCONDUCT IN OFFICE OF ALL PUBLIC OFFICERS IN THE COUNTY.                 
                    
CLEARLY, The CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY, MARK METZIS REQUIRED BY STATE LAW TO TAKE ACTION !!! (But he REFUSES TO DO SO because of WHO ELSE IS INVOLVED & WILL ALSO BE IMPLICATED !!!)
Because Of The REFUSAL Of
CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ
To Empanel A
GRAND JURY
As
REQUIRED BY LAW,
(see MINNESOTA STATUTE 628.61),

The True And Complete Facts And Information (That I KNOW) Of What Really Has Taken Place In The
City of Hamburg By City And County PUBLIC OFFICIALS, Can Not Be Known !!

Was What Took Place In Hamburg Solely A 'Lone Act' Of The
HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER ?

Or Was He 'INSTRUCTED', By Other PUBLIC OFFICIALS, To Commit The Acts That Took Place ? If So, WHO Are Those
'Other' PUBLIC OFFICIALS, WHEN  Did They Know About What Was Taking Place,  WHAT  Did They Do, WHEN  Did
  They Do It And WHAT  Did They Tell Him To Do ?  A Grand Jury Would Have  EASILY  Provided These 'Answers'.

But, Carver County Attorney Mark Metz Chose To INTENTIONALLY VIOLATE THE LAW INSTEAD
In Order To PROTECT THOSE INVOLVED  And Those Who Are YET TO BE IDENTIFIED !!

PUBLIC
ACCOUNTABILITY

Public accountability is the hallmark of modern democratic governance. Democracy remains a paper procedure if those in power cannot be held accountable in public for their acts and omissions, for their decisions, their policies, and their expenditures. Public accountability, as an institution, therefore, is the complement of public management. As a concept, however, “public accountability” is rather elusive. It is one of those evocative political words that can be used to patch up a rambling argument, to evoke an image of trustworthiness, fidelity, and justice, or to hold critics at bay. Historically, the concept of accountability is closely related to accounting. In fact, it literally comes from bookkeeping. Nowadays, accountability has moved far beyond its bookkeeping origins and has become a symbol for good governance, both in the public and in the private sector.

Do You Know What The Difference Is Between An  'EXEMPT' Employee And 'NON-EXEMPT' EMPLOYEE ?

NON-EXEMPT employees are guaranteed an hourly wage and 'overtime' pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). They must earn at
least the federal or state minimum wage for every hour worked, and 'overtime' pay for any amount of time exceeding 40 hours. 'Overtime'
is any amount of time worked in excess of 40 hours per week.  Even if NON-EXEMPT employees earn more than the federal
minimum wage, they still take  direction from supervisors and do NOT have administrative or executive positions.

EXEMPT  employees provide administrative support services to production and operation staff and can include employees in human resources, accounting, legal, public relations, compliance, finance, payroll and other related roles. These “salaried” employees
receive the same amount of pay per pay period , even if they put in overtime hours and are NOT entitled overtime pay by
the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

When I Was A Hamburg City Council Member (2013-2016), It Was Reported To Us That Someone Was
SABOTAGING THE CITY'S FIRE TRUCKS
By Entering The Hamburg Fire Station, Undetected; And
UNPLUGGING THE TRUCK'S BATTERY CHARGERS
As Well As
DISCONNECTING THE TRUCK'S BRAKE AIR HOSES !!

Knowing WHO Had The OPPORTUNITY, the UNRESTRICTED  ACCESS To The Fire Station, And Also Had The MOTIVE, I Wanted The Other CITY OFFICIALS To Report These  INTENTIONAL ACTS OF SABOTAGE That Potentially Subjected DEDICATED FIREFIGHTERS To PERSONAL INJURY  As Well As DELAYING THE RESPONSE TIME Of  EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT Used To SAVE LIVES and PROPERTY.

Once Again; Because Of  WHO WOULD BE IDENTIFIED  As The Perpetrator Of These CRIMINAL ACTS,
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS  REFUSED TO  REPORT  THE INCIDENTS TO THE CARVER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE !! But; I DID !!
In A Nearly TWO HOUR MEETING With FORMER CARVER COUNTY SHERIFF JAMES OLSON, And At A Later Meeting With FORMER Sheriff James Olson And His 'Command Staff', I Informed Him, WAY BACK THEN, Of What Was Taking Place In The CITY OF HAMBURG By Its PUBLIC OFFICIALS. Sheriff James Olson, DID NOTHING !!

AGENDA NOT POSTED AS OF 09-12-21
Regularly Scheduled Hamburg City Council Meeting Is September 14, 2021
The message below appears on
the City's Webpage.......
In his 'closing argument' of the actual 'facts and evidence' presented to the jury during the murder trial of George Floyd by former Minneapolis Policeman Derek Chauvin, Prosecuting Attorney Steve Schleicher, who SUCCESSFULLY prosecuted the murder case (in an EXCELLENT MANNER and at NO CHARGE TO TAXPAYERS), used the term "COMMON SENSE" a total  of  FOURTEEN TIMES  because of how important
"COMMON SENSE" truly is/was when combined with the overwhelming; incontrovertible evidence presented to the jury, in obtaining a conviction of the accused by an impartial jury.

In my narrative contained above on this Webpage and primarily directed to the HAMBURG, CARVER COUNTY and MINNESOTA residents and other visitors to my Website (which ALSO is at NO CHARGE TO TAXPAYERS), I've used the term "COMMON SENSE" a total of EIGHTEEN TIMES. The importance of "COMMON SENSE" is fundamental. Alerting the residents of the CITY OF HAMBURG, CARVER COUNTY and the STATE OF MINNESOTA about what's taking place with our PUBLIC OFFICIALS is CRITICALLY IMPORTANT. Those PUBLIC OFFICIALS IGNORING that OVERWHELMING, INCONTROVERTIBLE EVIDENCE of MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE, is REPREHENSIBLE !! Those found guilty are subject to SUBSTANTIAL FINES and IMPRISONMENT !!

When the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE completes their pending investigation of the CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS and the MINNEAPOLIS POLICE DEPARTMENT, perhaps UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL MERRICK GARLAND will direct them to investigate what's taking place in the CITY OF HAMBURG, the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE and the MINNESOTA  ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE, by PUBLIC OFFICIALS associated therewith; that you've been reading about on this Website for the last year and a half involving those PUBLIC OFFICIALS who REFUSE TO TAKE ANY ACTION BECAUSE OF THE IDENTITY OF WHO IS INVOLVED and BECAUSE OF THEIR 'PROFESSIONAL STATUS'. It defies "COMMON SENSE". But maybe, just maybe; that's all about to change. And if the F.B.I. gets involved, that's EVEN BETTER !!
"COMMON SENSE": Sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts.

YOU DON'T NEED IT !!
The Mailer I Recently Sent Out (And There WILL Be More) Certainly Generated A Lot Of Interest In My Website About The CITY OF HAMBURG & What Is Taking Place With Our PUBLIC OFFICIALS !! CLICK HERE TO HEAR OTHER COMMENTS MADE (Recorded From The APRIL 27, 2021 HAMBURG CITY COUNTIL MEETING) By CITY OFFICIALS During Several HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL Meetings About The Controversy Of The CITY OF HAMBURG Providing 'Discounted Cellphone Service' To (NOT RESIDENTS), But ONLY CITY OFFICIALS, CITY EMPLOYEES AND THEIR FAMILIES Involving TAXPAYER DOLLARS !! The HAMBURG COUNCILMEMBER (who IDENTIFIED HIMSELF) and made his IRRESPONSIBLE REMARKS (that you're hearing while reading this Webpage) about my anonymity are CLEARLY FALSE !! (My NAME, STREET ADDRESS, TELEPHONE NUMBER and E-MAIL ADDRESS are CLEARLY, and EASILY, available, and accessible, on BOTH of my Websites !!)  And; THIS PERSON is RESPONSIBLE  for 'DECISION MAKING' and SPENDING TAXPAYER DOLLARS  in the CITY OF HAMBURG ?? YIKES !! He appears to me to be a very unhappy, troubled person with a lot of 'hate and anger' in his heart. Serving as an elected HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBER. WOW; FACT is STRANGER than FICTION !!  I wonder Who READS this Website to him ?

Also, that SAME HAMBURG COUNCILMEMBER HAS ALSO CLEARLY LIED !! (NO surprise there.) I NEVER STATED the CITY was paying for their monthly cellphone service !! That, of course, was ANOTHER LIE; FABRICATED, & PUBLICLY STATED, by the HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBER !! The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know. It's called HERD STUPIDITY; for which there is NO VACCINATION. GOD HELP US ALL !! (You'll recall that I have previously referred to what was taking place by HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS  involving TAXPAYER DOLLARS as 'REVERSE MONEY LAUNDERING' !!)
With the exception of Hamburg Mayor Chris Lund, who, in himself; is a 'piece of work', it's important to point out that I have NEVER  MET  ANY of the elected CITY COUNCILMEMBERS. My 'perception' of all four of them is SOLEY based on hearing them 'in action' by listening to the generally VERY POOR QUALITY HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL meeting recordings of all of them via the City's  'Official' Website. (A concept that I was responsible for initiating when I was a HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBER; 2013-2016.)

By listening to those very poor quality recordings of the four elected CITY COUNCILMEMBERS, COUNCILMEMBER TIM TRACY seems to be the only individual that has a clear-thinking head on his shoulders and 'impresses' me the most; at least to this point. (It's too soon for me to form an objective impression of newly elected HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBER JESSICA WEBER who was seated on the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL this past January, but it's good to see the diversity of bringing in a woman again to what has historically always been a 'male dominated' "GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB" atmosphere of PUBLIC OFFICIALS in the CITY OF HAMBURG.)

As for the other two HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBERS, if you've listened to Hamburg's answer to the 'Bobsey Twins' during any of the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL Meetings, it's very clear and easy to quickly recognize, and form an accurate opinion about  their suitability and effectiveness as representatives of the CITY OF HAMBURG.  Notice how the TRUE FACTS are knowingly 'MANIPULATED & DISTORTED' and interpreted to THEIR 'liking' instead of them ACKNOWLEDGING & ACCEPTING what those facts truly are and represent.  To validate that statement, you're listening (FIREFOX BROWSER REQUIRED !!) to the rambling (again) and THREATENING COMMENTS of one of the two CITY OF HAMBURG, 'hayseeds';  recorded  at the April 27, 2021 HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL Meeting. He sounds like a 'radical vigilante' to me !! And, here's something that you won't hear or read on the City's 'Official' Website: The WIFE of that same 'Holier-Than- Thou' HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMAN, 'GAVE THE FINGER' To A FELLOW CITY RESIDENT !! How RUDE , IMPOLITE and IMPROPER is that ?? YES; the WIFE of an ELECTED HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMAN TOWARD A CITY RESIDENT !! Lovely !! WELCOME TO HAMBURG, folks; where FACT is STRANGER than FICTION !!

SEE IF YOU AGREE  THAT THE IRRESPONSIBLE, REPREHENSIBLE, AND HIGHLY OFFENSIVE CONDUCT OF CITY OFFICIALS IS WHOLLY INAPPROPRIATE & UNACCEPTABLE  !!

MINNESOTA STATUTE 628.61 dictates under what circumstances a Grand Jury is empanelled:

628.61 MATTERS INQUIRED INTO
The grand jury shall inquire:

(1)    into the condition of every person imprisoned on a criminal charge triable in the county, and not indicted;

(2)    into the condition and management of the public prisons in the county; and

(3)    into the willful and corrupt misconduct in office of all public officers in the county.

At this point, so far we’ve identified the HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, the 'contract'
HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY, KELLY C. DOHM,  and the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY involved. But wait; THERE’S MORE !!

On June 23, 2020, MORE THAN SIX MONTHS AFTER I INITILLY CONTECTED THE CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY, I received a letter from ‘DEPUTY’ COUNTY ATTORNEY PETER IVY; a person in the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY’S OFFICE that I’m NOT totally ‘unfamiliar’ with. I first learned who he was when I was on the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL from 2013-2016. While serving as a  HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL, I had this preponderance of asking ‘WHY’ ? A question that virtually nobody apparently has ever asked before (or probably since).

That’s a whole different story, but the ’end result’ was that the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL wasted $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS in their (unsuccessful) attempt to force me to resign my position on the City Council !! While the HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER was the ‘catalyst’ behind the effort to remove me, the ’contract’ HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY, KELLY C. DOHM, from the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & JODIN was ‘right in there pitchin’ along side the other member of the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL, coming of with all these wild and grandiose 'ideas’ of ‘tactics to try’ that were taking money out of the Taxpayers (Hamburg’s) ’bank account’ and ‘fattening up’ the law firms bank account!!

All the while, I can’t tell you the number of times KELLY C. DOHM said (paraphrasing) “Peter Ivy this, or Peter Ivy that or I’ll talk to Peter Ivy”.  It was really pretty pathetic to watch, hear and experience.

We've now learned that our dedicated and very valuable Public Works employee wiil be retiring in early 2022. Considering a variety of factors, including being "ON CALL24/7/365", it will be very much of a CHALLENGE  for the City to find a replacement employee as conscientious as Greg.

He was one of ONLY TWO candidates that applied for the opening  when I was on the City Council. He's served the City well; a very knowledgeable and 'talented' individual.

To See The Letters I Sent To The "Lawyers Board", And Their Responses, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
REMEMBER THESE TWO WORDS: "PROBABLE CAUSE''
(You'll Be Hearing Them Again. Often.)

"Probable Cause" requires more than a mere suspicion that a suspect committed a crime, but not an absolute certainty. 'Probable Cause' is the legal standard that requires facts or evidence in a given situation that would lead a reasonable person to believe that a suspect has committed a crime and that suspect accused, did, in fact, commit the crime of which he or she is accused. (In Illinois v. Gates, 462 U.S. 213, 232 (1983), the Court favored a flexible approach, viewing 'Probable Cause' as a "practical, non-technical" standard that calls upon the factual and practical considerations of everyday life on which reasonable and prudent men [...] act". (Courts often adopt a broader, more flexible view of 'Probable Cause' when the alleged offenses are serious.) Like; INVOLVING 'PUBLIC OFFICIALS', maybe ??

Various terms and words are used on this Website (with 'definition links' provided) that describe what took/is taking place in the CITY OF HAMBURG by its PUBLIC OFFICIALS. When I, as a FORMER CITY OFFICIAL, made a FORMAL COMPLAINT of what was taking place in the City by it's PUBLIC OFFICIALS to CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ, he basically gave my report of PUBLIC OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT (MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43) and CORRUPTION the 'DEEP SIX' because of who was involved and who would further be identifed and also be implicated should a formal, CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION be conducted. (Metz, INTENTIONALLY 'QUASHED' my complaint made to him !!). As you will learn from reading this Website, CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ is REQUIRED BY MINNESOTA STATUTE, to initiate very specific actions, INCLUDING EMPANELING A GRAND JURY, whenever MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS AND/OR EMPLOYEES, is reported to him. But, for reasons detailed on this Website, COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH MINNESOTA LAW and DID NOTHING; hoping, presumably; that 'EVERYTHING WILL JUST GO AWAY' !!  It HASN'T and it WON'T !! (To see my communications with CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY METZ, PLEASE CLICK HERE.) Now, two years later, not only are the residents of Hamburg STILL LEARNING about the 'SERIOUS SHORTCOMINGS' and 'QUESTIONABLE ACTIONS' of our LOCAL PUBLIC OFFICIALS and the MASSIVE "COVER-UP" TAKING PLACE, but ALSO the involvement of CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ as well as the INDIFFERENCE of  MINNESOTA'S PREDJUDICIAL ATTORNEY GENERAL; KEITH ELLISON !!

And, EVEN THOUGH the Judge ruled AGAINST the township, the town Board Members are considering APPEALING, at TAXPAYER EXPENSE, the Judge's ruling !!  They, too; think that there's a 'bottomless pit' of  TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

So, You Ask;
WHO IS THE
SINGLE PERSON
RESPONSIBLE
For All Of What's
Taken Place & When
Did It All Begin ??

JEREMY GRUENHAGEN
When Someone LIES To Me, They've LOST MY TRUST Forever !!
In The Summer Of 2020,
HAMBURG MAYOR
CHRISTOPHER LUND
Decided That He Wanted To Abandon The City Of Hamburg Hoping, Instead, To Become
Elected As A Carver County Commissioner.

Based On What I've Observed About Lund As Not Only A Hamburg City Councilmember, But Now, Also As Hamburg's Mayor, I Sent A Letter To Lund Seeking Answers To Some Concerns I Had About His Suitability, AND QUALIFICATIONS, As A
Carver County Commissioner.
True To His Form,
LUND NEVER RESPONDED !!

Fortunately, For The Residents Of 
Carver County, Lund's Election Efforts
FAILED MISERABLY
And He Was SOUNDLY
DEFEATED; Having Received
ONLY 14 VOTES
From Hamburg Residents.
(And, I'd Never Before Heard Of A 'Political Aspirant'  Using A "GO FUND ME" Account To  Finance
Their  Election To Public Office.)

Lund Also Apparently Feels That It Is
Not Necessary To Respond To The Concerns
Of Citizens; Lund Has NEVER Responded To
My Inquiries To Him About What Is Taking
Place In The City Of Hamburg.
This Instance Was
NO DIFFERENT !!
PLEASE CLICK HERE
In January I requested, and received, an
UPDATED AMOUNT OF
TAXPAYER DOLLARS
that have been spent on the current lawsuit  against the City of Hamburg as detailed on this Website. But then  later, I was advised that according to the Hamburg City Hall as of January 1 , 2022, the  HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL
had really only
SPENT $66,043.91*
of your (our)
HARD EARNED TAXPAYER DOLLARS !!

*This City has advised that this amount is a 'corrected ' amount & that the previously information provided was incorrect due to to incorrect 'entries'
that were 'not coded' properly.

Of course, in view of what I've already 'uncovered' taking place in the City by its PUBLIC OFFICIALS, couplef with my previously being a City Councilmember,
I'm now 'suspicious' about ANYTHING that
I am now told 'by the City' !

Whatever the amount, you may be assured that the OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT OF TAXPAYER  DOLLARS ALREADY PAID to 'contract;' KELLY DOHM's Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN is only GOING TO INCREASE!!

NOTE: The CITY OF HAMBURG is now REFUSING TO PROVIDE ANY INFORMATION about how TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE BEING SPENT !!
PLA-MOR BALLROOM * GLENCOE, MN. EVENT  SCHEDULE
Even While I Was STILL A Member Of The
HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL
(2013 - 2017)
I HAD CONCERNS
ABOUT WHAT WAS TAKING
PLACE  BY THE OTHER
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS !!

Please 'Click' On The Image On The Right Above To Enlarge The Placard That  I Had Posted On My HAMBURGMINNESOTA.COM
Website OVER SIX YEARS AGO !!

Also, In order to accommodate the publishing
of the recently discovered information
described above, it was necessary
to 'move' the summary of my
'accomplishments' while I was a
Hamburg City Council Member,
to another location within
this Website.

PLEASE CLICK HERE
City Council Meetings Are SUPPOSED To Be Recorded, Yet; Anyone Attempting To Listen To Those Recordings Is Unable To Do So  Because Of The VERY POOR,DISTORTED, UNRELIABLE  GARBLED AUDIO. This UNACCEPTABLE AUDIO QUALITY Has Been Called To The City's Attention NUMBEROUS TIMES But CITY OFFICIALS Have INTENTIONALLYREFUSED
TO TAKE ANY ACTION To IMPROVE The QUALITY Of These Recordings. The Only Possible Explanation Is Because The City DOESN'T WANT RESIDENTS To Have The ABILITY TO
LISTEN To Previous City Council Proceedings So They Will Know What's Taking Place In The City !! They couldn't have found a better way to accomplish that surreptitiously !!

(Remember I, Too; Was Once A Hamburg City Council Member For FOUR YEARS !!) To Better Understand What I'm Referring To, PLEASE CLICK HEAR !!
This
CAN'T
Be
Good !!
17 DAYS AFTER I Made My 'Information Request', I Received A Partial Response From The City of Hamburg Regarding The PUBLIC INFORMATION That I've Been Trying To Obtain And Post On This Website So That (Interested) HAMBURG TAXPAYERS (And Others) Can Have Some Idea Of What's Taking Place In The City And How Our HARD EARNED TAXPAYER DOLLARS Are Being Spent. To See
My Initial January 2, 2022 Request,
PLEASE CLICK HERE.

'RUNNING UP THE BILL'
As everyone who visits this Website knows, UPON THE ADVICE OF 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM, of the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN, 'in concert' with the HAMBURG CITY CLERK, the City initially BLOCKED or  at  least  delayed, one or more of   my  'information requests'; a 'SCAM' perpetrated to allow 'deeper digging'  Into the pockets
of HAMBURG TAXPAYERS !!

Also by her 'stonewalling' my January 2nd requests sent to the City seeking PUBLIC
INFORMATION, DOHM not only brought DISCREDIT to her profession AND HER LAW FIRM, she also INTENTIONALLY
VIOLATED MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43, MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC
OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE, as well as RULE 8.4 of the MINNESOTA RULES OF LAWYER PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT !!

And The 'Hits' Just Keep On Coming !!
You're Looking At & Reading Just ONE Of The
MANY REASONS Why This Website Is So POPULAR !!
The Webpage Shown Here Is One That I Maintained During My Term As A Hamburg City Council Member (2013-2016) And Documents The  PUBLIC  SUPPORT That I Received When I Started 'ASKING QUESTIONS' Of The Other PUBLIC OFFICIALS Of Hamburg About "What The Hell Is Going On?"

My 'Inquiring Mind' OBVIOUSLY 'STUCK A NERVE' Of The Other City PUBLIC  OFFICIALS  And  ALL OF THEM  Spent The  Rest My  Term Trying UNSUCCESSFULLY To Force Me To Resign My City Council Position. Of Course, I Didn't Succumb To Their DASTARDLY And UNDERHANDED EFFORTS. The Fact That The Other  HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS WASTED $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS On The FUTILE EFFORTS To UNSEAT ME, Showed Just How Desperate They Were/Are To Keep Hamburg Residents From Knowing The True And Corrects Facts About  What's Taking Place With Hamburg's PUBLIC OFFICIALS, What They're 'Doing' And Their Unacceptable LACK OF INTEGRITY !! Though Most Of The PUBLIC OFFICIALS In The City Of Hamburg Have Now Changed, The City's 'Tactics' REMAIN THE SAME Because Of Three PUBLIC OFFICIAL 'HOLDOVERS';FORMER HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBERS, And Now CURRENT MAYOR CHRIS LUND, HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN And, Of Course, 'Contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM Of The Waconia Based Law Firm Of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN.

It Is Also SPECIFICALLY NOTED That Newly Elected Hamburg City Council Member Jessica Weber is SPECIFICALLY EXEMPTED From Having ANY Involvement Regarding My Reporting And Allegations Of What's Taken Place Prior To 2020 By The PUBLIC OFFICIALS Of The CITY OF HAMBURG.Virtually ALL Of What You're Reading About On My Website About The City Of Hamburg Took Place Before Councilmember Weber Was Elected To The Hamburg City Council. THANKS To EVERYONE That Has Voiced Your 'Support' For Me, My Websites And For What My Website & I Represent !!
NOW
OVER
TOTAL ACCUMULATED COMBINED WEBSITE 'HITS'
SETTING THE EXAMPLE FOR CITY EMPLOYEES ??
Ever wonder how many
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS DON'T
'BELIEVE IN' GETTING VACCINATED ??

Drinking 'Lots Of Water' & 'Taking Vitamins' Doesn't Quite 'Cut' It; It's Like "Doctoring Yourself" Via The Internet When You Get Sick !!) CONTACT WITH THE PUBLIC and NOT BEING TOTALLY VACCINATED, is
morally REPREHENSIBLE & TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE !!

HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS have REFUSED to provide information about their immunization status or whether City Officials and Employees
are/have been infected, or hospitalized, with Covid-19.

  Their 'refusal' actually provided the answers I was seeking !!

YES;
YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY;

'DEPUTY' CARVER COUNTY
ATTORNEY PETER IVY
is a
MEMBER
of the
OVERSIGHT BOARD
of the
OFFICE OF LAWYERS PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY
the state agency charged to
INVESTIGATE COMPLAINTS
brought against lawyers like
MARK METZ & PETER IVY
because, as in this case, of their
REFUSAL TO INVESTIGATE THE (CRIMINAL) ACTIONS
of
OTHER PUBLIC OFFICIALS!!

And, NOW; WE KNOW WHY my FORMAL COMPLAINTS against METZ & IVY for their
FAILURE TO TAKE PROPER
ACTION were DISMISSED
& NEVER INVESTIGATED !!

TO SEE THE EVIDENCE CLICK HERE !
The questions that you may ask (and well you
SHOULD) is "HOW can DOHM 'GET AWAY'
with everything that she is doing" and
"WHY Are HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS
NOT ACCOUNTABLE For Their Actions ?"

It's really QUITE SIMPLE: DOHM has a 'cozy arrangement' (nod-nod; wink-wink) with the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE that 'SHIELDS' HER FROM
PROSECUTION of any of her 'untoward' acts and misdeeds. DOHM basically has the civilian
form of 'diplomatic immunity'.
SMELL ANYTHING YET ??
Just as with 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM
it's the civilian form of 'diplomatic immunity' for CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ and his 'DEPUTY' PETER IVY.

This Webpage has 'exposed' what we've ALREADY WITNESSED and how effective those 'SCAMS'  that they've so cleverly devised & disguised, really are !!!
I'm Also Trying To Understand  WHY, Other Than To Personally Embarrass Them, What Useful Purpose Is Accomplished By The City Recently
PUBLICLY PUBLISHING the NAMES OF CITY RESIDENTS having PAST DUE WATER/SEWER UTILITY BILLS ??!!
WHAT WAS THE  CITY'S ' MOTIVE'  IN DOING SO ??

MARK METZ
Carver County Attorney

With An AMERICAN FLAG In The Background And
KNOWING What's Taken Place In HIS OFFICE, HOW Can This Man Have The Cojones To
CONTINUE TO COLLECT CARVER COUNTY
TAXPAYER DOLLARS ??

Metz Claimed That  He Had
NO AUTHORITY TO INVESTIGATE
Allegations Of
MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS OF THE
CITY OF HAMBURG !!

To See My Written Communications With The Carver County Attorney's Office & Their Ludicrous 'Excuses', PLEASE CLICK HERE.

IN KENTUCKY, IT'S A FELONY CHARGE  FOR
MINNESOTA ATTORNEYS
GO UNPUNISHED !!
In a Kentucky case, former Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney/Prosecutor Jackie Johnson was charged with VIOLATION OF OATH OF OFFICE (a FELONY) and with MISCONDUCT  (a MISDEMEANOR) for using her position to discourage (police from) making arrests.
THEIR OATH OF OFFICE !!
IN KENTUCKY, IT'S A FELONY CHARGE  FOR AN ATTORNEY TO VIOLATE THEIR OATH OF OFFICE !!
In MINNESOTA, ATTORNEYS Go UNPUNISHED !!

In the Kentucky case, former Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney/Prosecutor Jackie Johnson was charged with VIOLATION OF OATH OF OFFICE (a FELONY) and with MISCONDUCT (a MISDEMEANOR) for using her position to discourage (police from) making arrests (in a homicide).

But, GEORGIA ATTORNEY GENERAL CHRIS CARR , whose Office is prosecuting the case against Johnson, sought the misconduct investigation of Johnson last year saying the first outside prosecutor he appointed to handle the case had been recommended by Johnson, who never disclosed that she had already asked that prosecutor to advise police in the immediate aftermath of the killing.

Johnson lost reelection last year, blaming the controversy of her actions, for her defeat.

Let's all hope that in the 2022 election, 'karma' visits the CITY OF HAMBURG as well as the Offices of the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY and the MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL !!

Maybe, U.S. ATTORNEY MERRICK GARLAND will 'make a trip to Minnesota'.

By her DESPICABLE, ARROGANT, ABHORRENT CONDUCT & BEHAVIOR, DOHN  is ALSO an EMBARRASSMENT to the RESIDENTS OF HAMBURG and is BRINGING DISCREDIT to our City's IMAGE
& REPUTATION !! And the HAMBURG CITY
COUNCIL thinks that's ACCEPTABLE !!
SMELL ANYTHING ??
AN ATTORNEY
TO VIOLATE
Similarly, because 'DEPUTY' CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY PETER IVY is a MEMBER
of the OVERSIGHT BOARD
of the OFFICE OF
LAWYER'S PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY, the CARVER COUNTY  ATTORNEY'S OFFICE  ALSO has a 'cozy arrangement' (nod-nod; wink-wink) with the STATE AGENCY that is CHARGED
WITH UPHOLDING INTEGRITY
OF MINNESOTA LAWYERS; the 0FFICE OF
LAWYER'S PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY !!

As already PROVEN BY 'OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS', that 'cozy arrangement' by the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEYS OFFICE 'SHIELDS' THEMFROM ANY DISCIPLINARY ACTION'
for inappropriate & unethical actions.
HOW ABOUT NOW ??
It's taken me
OVER TWO YEARS
to 'uncover' what's actually been taking place and 'going on' with the

PUBLIC OFFICIALS
of the
CITY OF HAMBURG
& the
CARVER COUNTY
ATTORNEY'S
OFFICE
and who all is involved, but I don't 'give up' easily !!

They
ALL BELONG IN JAIL
And They
ALL SHOULD HAVE
THEIR LAW
LICENSES REVOKED
Because Of What They've Done !!

Additionally, PUBLIC OFFICIALS trying to EXPLOIT and TAKING ADVANTAGE of a
78+ year old CITY/COUNTY  RESIDENT  is DISGUSTING !!
(It's ALSO DISCRIMINATION !!)

STAY TUNED !!
In light of 'INCONTROVERTIBLE & CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE' AGAINST THEM, it's going to be VERY INTERESTING to see what 'legal gymnastics' these unethical 'PUBLIC SERVANTS' employ to AGAIN facilitate 'escaping' scrutiny from the
OFFICE OF LAWYER'S PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY; an INEFFECTIVE State Agency that is DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE to the MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT.

By the selfish, unethical, immoral, illegal,sanctimonious and manipulative acts of a 'handful' of lawyers & other 'PUBLIC SERVANTS, coupled with the GROSS NEGLIGENCE and INEFFICIENCY
of the STATE AGENCY that is SUPPOSED
to HOLD LAWYERS ACCOUNTABLE
for their actions, the
MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT's
STELLAR IMAGE
has been SEVERLY TARNISHED !!

And, of course; this 'civilian form' of 'diplomatic immunity' has, MUCH TO THEIR DELIGHT, 'trickled down' to the PUBLIC OFFICIALS of the CITY OF HAMBURG !!

The 'end result' is that much to the DETRIMENT OF TAXPAYERS, PUBLIC OFFICIALS ARE NOT able to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE for any  of their
(criminal) actions or 'misdeeds'  !!

This civilian form of 'diplomatic immunity' should more aptly be called what it is;
CORRUPTION !!

If you'd like to know more about me,
CLICK HERE TO SEE MY RESUME'.
When I was a Hamburg City Councilmember, (2013-2017) I RETURNED ALL of my HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL 'wages' TO THE CITY the FIRST year, DONATED ALL of my SECOND year's 'wages' to the HAMBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT RELIEF ASSCIATION and used my 'wages' for my THIRD & FOURTH years to pay my attorney's fees to ensure that I was properly dealing with the underhanded tactics of the other HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS in their trying to FORCE ME OFF THE CITY COUNCIL !! (You'll recall I WON THAT CHALLENGE against the other HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS, CLICK HERE to see the letter that my attorney sent to the City.) NEEDLESS TO SAY, the City was WRONG AGAIN; and I SERVED AND COMPLETED my ENTIRE FOUR YEAR TERM while the City 'PISSED AWAY' $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS IN LAWYER'S FEES to the Waconia based law firm of 'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM; MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN, trying to 'prove' an 'UNPROVEABLE POINT' !! 'Contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM is a HORRIBLE, VINDICTIVE PERSON !! And she 'fits right in' with the rest of the other CITY OFFICIALS !!

What the sanctimonious HAMBURG MAYOR and CITY COUNCILMEMBERS  REFUSE TO ACCEPT  Is That They ALL  Are RESPONSIBLE, And LIABLE, For Whatever Takes Place In The City By An Employee When PUBLIC OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT, Or Other CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, Occurs. Their FAILURE TO ACT, As REQUIRED BY MINNESOTA STATE LAW, Is ALSO A VIOLATION OF THE LAW And Subjects EACH Of Them, PERSONALLY  To Up To ONE YEAR IMPRISONMENT, A FINE OF UP TO $3,000.00; Or BOTH !! (And Most Likely Would  Be REMOVED FROM OFFICE !!) The LAWYERS  Involved, Could, Of Course, ALSO Be 'CENSURED' Or 'DISBARRED' Because Of What's Taken Place And Their 'INVOLVEMENT' !!

Now; You See WHY Everything Is Being 'COVERED UP" !! They ALL Have A LOT TO 'LOSE' Because Of THEIR INVOLVEMENT In WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE In The City Of Hamburg !! I'm CERTAIN That NONE OF THEM EVER THOUGHT, Even For A Moment, That Their DEVIOUS ACTS & DISHONESTY Would Ever Be Discovered !! And I'm ALSO CERTAIN They All THINK That They Have 'IMMUNITY' FROM PROSECUTION' Because Of Their 'BUDDIES' In The CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE !!


JUST SEVEN (OF MANY) EXAMPLES OF
UNACCEPTABLE CONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS
And Being LESS THAN HONEST  & 'UPFRONT' With The
OFFICE OF LAWYER'S PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY !!

1.) CONSPIRING To INTENTIONALLY  FABRICATE & PREPARE OFFICIAL CITY
    DOCUMENTS That KNOWINGLY Contained FALSE  INFORMATION !!

2.) REFUSAL To PROVIDE PUBLIC INFORMATION About Past/Present COVID-19 STATUS
    Of CITY OFFICIALS Who, Daily; DEAL WITH THE PUBLIC !! (To See The City's Response
    & My Reply, PLEASE CLICK HERE.)

3.) REFUSAL To PROVIDE PUBLIC INFORMATION Regarding Explanations Of How
    TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE SPENT and WHY !!

4.) REFUSAL To PROVIDE DETAILS  Of, JUSTIFICATION For, AMOUNT Of TAXPAYER
    DOLLARS SPENT And TYPE OF 'ENFORCEMENT ACTION'  TAKEN  AGAINST A CITY
    RESIDENT !! (To See The City's Response & My Reply, PLEASE CLICK HERE.)

5.) HOW, But More Importantly WHY,  Is HAMBURG 'CONTRACT' ATTORNEY KELLY C.
    DOHM So DEEPLY INVOLVED  In Everything Listed Above That's Taken Place ?? (See
   'RUNNING UP THE BILL' above/left  and also PLEASE CLICK HERE.)

6.) WHY Was The FORMAL MISCONDUCT & ETHICS COMPLAINT That I Filed With The
    OFFICE OF LAWYER'S PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY  Against CARVER COUNTY
    MARK METZ & 'DEPUTY' COUNTY ATTORNEY  PETER IVY 'DISMISSED SO QUICKLY
    WITHOUT ANY 'INVESTIGATION' And NOT SO MUCH  As Even A  SIMPLE TELEPHONE
    CALL To Me ??

7.) How were CARVER COUNTY MARK METZ & 'DEPUTY' COUNTY ATTORNEY  PETER
    IVY able to 'hornswoggle' the OFFICE OF LAWYERS PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILTY     and PREVENT INVESTIGATIONS  of 'ETHICS VIOLATIONS' and 'LAWYER  
    MISCONDUCT' from taking place against BOTH of them as well as BLOCK  SIMILAR
    INVESTIGATIONS of 'ETHICS VIOLATIONS'  and 'LAWYER MISCONDUCT' of 'contract'
    HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY  KELLY C. DOHM ??

I've Discovered The WHY, And The HOW; The WHAT That Took Place Will
BLOW YOUR SOCKS OFF !!

Meanwhile, HAMBURG CITY
OFFICIALS WASTED $50,000.00
TAXPAYER DOLLARS attempting, UNSUCCESSFULLY, to FORCE  me
off of the Hamburg City Council !!

And it ALL was precipitated by the
HAMBURG CLERK/TREASURER,
JEREMY GRUENHAGEN. (Check
back to HEAR  when it ALL began !!)
GRUENHAGEN is TRULY  a
'WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING' !!

The HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER, MAYOR RICHARD MALZ, the other CITY
COUNCIL MEMBERS as well as
'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM, were ALL SO DESPERATE to 'get rid of me' because of the 'questions
I was asking', that they EVEN FILED
A FALSE POLICE REPORT
against me as (just) ONE of their
MANY ATTEMPTS !!
(Wait 'til you read the content of the
45 PAGE transcript of my 2 HOUR
'EYE-OPENING  INTERROGATION''
with a Detective from the McLeod
County Sheriff's Office !!)

Of course, much to the dismay of the HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS, I was TOTALLY EXHONORATED !!

Still, in an attempt to 'INTIMIDATE' me,
CITY OFFICIALS BANNED ME from
ALL CITY PROPERTY and
ORDERED that I SURRENDER
ALL 'CITY KEYS'  issued to me !! 

THESE are the kinds of ruthless, vicious, 'dirty', underhanded PUBLIC OFFICIAL OGRES that are 'ruining'
the CITY OF HAMBURG.

One last thing:  We've all heard the
term 'hostile work environment';
GOOD LUCK trying to HIRE A
REPLACEMENT for the City's PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEE RETIRING in
MAY 2022 !! What's described above is what the NEXT PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEE will have to deal with !!

Who'd even want to work in such a
'toxic environment' ?? Look at the
BLATANT  and also COVERT ACTIONS  described above that the City Officials committed toward me; simply
because they didn't 'like' me.

And; I was an ELECTED OFFICIAL !!

They simply DON'T  'play fair' !!

With everything that's taken place in the City
of Hamburg that you're reading about on this Website, (AND MORE), Hamburg is sitting on the proverbial 'powder keg' because of the reprehensible conduct
of its PUBLIC OFFICIALS !!

and yes; EVEN about my Websites,

PLEASE CLICK HERE

While I had a 'pretty good idea' of HOW  they ALL were doing it, WHY they were doing it and WHO WAS INVOLVED, I
just need to get the  100% ABSOLUTE, INDISPUTABLE 'PROOF & EVIDENCE'  about what was taking place,
'BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT' !!


I DISCOVERED HOW they ALL were able to
'PULL IT OFF'
WITHOUT
DETECTION !!
"Hello; I received your flyer in the mail yesterday and I
also viewed your Website. I must say I'm very
disturbed by the information stated.

Have you considered taking this information to the news?
I for one would like to see some accountability
happen for these actions if the city council or
mayor won't do what's needed.

Maybe some pressure from the news media
might push things forward."

"The thin paper on "The Mayor's tasteless (or more)
presentation of Biden and Walz, was revealing.
Have you contacted Facebunk and asked them to
look into removing him from their service? 

It seems that would be appropriate, and FB has lately
become more sensitive to such matters."

"I am beginning to think Chris Lund is what he is: A want to be politician, not that smart as well as being a liar and probably a theif. Jeremy G lives in a fairy land who actually believes people hold him as special because he is a "city manager". Well although I like the town and think the people I have met are very good people outside the city office. Actually the city manger job is not that difficult. I believe he creates this sh** to grab attention, creates problems to justify his existence, all well using our tax dollars like it was monopoly money."

"Lots of interesting content on your page. I listened
to your interview  with Judge Fahey, great stuff."

"I'M IMPRESSED !! I've been reading over your
Website, Dick; IT'S INCREDIBLE !!

"I know you have things to do and it looks like you are filling up your time."

"I have been looking over your website and what a mess your city appears
to be with all the political games that are being played. I live near Chicago
which is the most corrupt city in the US. It looks like your little town is
trying to play big boy games. It is amazing how some city officials
think just  because they are voted  into office that gives them the
freedom to do anything they want to do at taxpayer’s expense."

"These are the reasons that so many people do NOT trust politicians
where a few bad apples screw it up for all the others. Take care….
Wear your mask and wash your hands often. Hopefully Wayzata,
where I grew up, has not gone downhill like Hamburg. I will
spread  the word on your web site around this area."

"They are on the run Mr. Odoms, nice job!"

"Got to tell you Mr. Odoms, you have alot going on, on your Website. I see that Grudenhagen admits to lying and that the attornys keep billing the City and Grudehagen keeps paying them, but why? Because they think they can steal from us? I am not seeing what anyone is gaining unless they all just are splitting up the money we the taxpayers pay. Wait til Trebesch officially wins his case, you know what that is going to do; create a liability that guess who pays for." (NOTE: The 'Grudenhagen' that the Website visitor refers to is, in fact, HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN; who, incidentially, DOESN'T EVEN LIVE IN THE CITY !!)

There's not much 'good' that can be said about a 'small town' MAYOR that PUBLICLY CRITICIZES, DEMEANS and BELITTLES PRESIDENT BIDEN and Minnesota GOVERNOR WALZ !! HAMBURG MAYOR
CHRIS LUND
represents the
CITY OF HAMBURG
and its residents in a
TOTALLY APPALLING MANNER !!
WORSE YET,
THERE'S

HAMBURG
MAYOR !!
IN THEIR LATEST COVERT ATTEMPT  TO INTENTIONALLY SUPPRESS PUBLIC INFORMATION  FROM RESIDENTS THAT WOULD NORMALLY APPEAR  ON THIS  VERY POPULAR WEBSITE, THE CITY OF HAMBURG  HAS NOW  STATED THAT THEY WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY MORE PUBLIC INFORMATION UNLESS I AGREE TO PAY THE CITY OF HAMBURG $30.00/HOUR, IN ADVANCE, TO OBTAIN THAT PUBLIC INFORMATION !!

The State Auditor's Office is already VERY MUCH FAMILIAR with HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS; ESPECIALLY  after learning of "THE GREAT HAMBURG CELLPHONE CAPER" that INVOLVED TAXPAYER DOLLARS to PROVIDE DISCOUNTED CELLPHONE SERVICE, but ONLY TO HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS  and THEIR FAMILIES !!

BECAUSE OF THIS LATEST TACTIC TO WITHHOLD PUBLIC INFORMATION, CITY RESIDENTS MUST NOW DEMAND A
COMPLETE EXTERNAL AUDIT OF THE CITY'S FINANCES by the  MINNESOTA OFFICE OF THE STATE AUDITOR  !!

You're invited to participate in a 'survey' to allow you to express your thoughts about everything (and more) that you've learned about by visiting this Website and my
other related Websites and Webpages, of what's taking place with the PUBLIC OFFICIALS of the CITY OF HAMBURG and within the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE

To participate in the survey, PLEASE CLICK HERE. You'll ALSO be asked if, based on what you've been reading over the past 2 1/2+ YEARS and the documents available on this Website, you believe that a COMPLETE FINANCIAL AUDIT should be conducted of the 'City's Finances' by the OFFICE OF THE MINNESOTA STATE AUDITOR. (I know of AT LEAST THREE current
CITY OFFICIALS that would VEHENMENTLY OPPOSE such an audit because it would EXPOSE the 'financial transgressions' and irresponsibility that have taken place for so long.
Remember, I was a City Council Member for FOUR YEARS and I SAW, FIRSTHAND, what was taking place even back then, and it HASN'T STOPPED !!)

Please e-mail any comments, thoughts, ideas or suggestions that you have to PublicOfficialsBehavingBadly@gmail.com;
particularly about your feelings regarding calling for a 'FULL AUDIT' of the 'City's Books' by the OFFICE OF THE MINNESOTA STATE AUDITOR !!

"Howdy sir. I think me & you should be friends.  I used to think this small town would be great to live in when my wife & I moved here more then 4 years ago.  Now I realized the city (staff & council) is a cesspool just like Washington. Smaller scale. But it's still sh*t none the less. Looking back at the old agendas & seeing that Jerk off City Clerk get a 4% bump in pay, voted in from all his buddys on the council, really pissed me the right the hell off! While the water and sewer and even soda pop gets raised higher. Everyone up there needs to drained out of office. Just got your piece of paper in the mail today. I saved the last one you sent a while ago. Read everything on your website. I tip my hat to you sir. I tried to give em hell at the meeting last night for the first time. They proved to me without a shadow of a doubt, what a miserable bunch of flesh they are.  If you ever want to talk in person, let me know. Thanks."

"You as a citizen have every right under law to communicate with (the Minnesota Supreme Court) Justices.  The "Chief" Justice is merely an administrative position. I know this first hand, as my sister was the administrative assistant for a Chief Justice of the MN Judicial Branch. The "commissioner" is a bureaucratic intermediary, and has no business telling a resident such a thing, unless the matter involves a current case before the Court. Bottom line is you are being stonewalled, on many fronts."

"I'm not familiar with groups that "watch dog" such entities as you mentioned who are blocking your efforts, but it may be of value to vet such entities and bring it to their attention. There are lots of fringe group conspiracy laden organizations in our world today, but if you carefully evaluate them you may find an ally."

"A one person battle is almost impossible, particularly when challenging bureaucratic entities.":

"You probably know as well as I, City, County, official governmental bodies, they simply don't care.  When outside powerful entities bring the politicos to task, thereby challenging their competency or ethics, movement often occurs."

"I took a look at your Website; very interesting. I enjoy 'Blue Backed' Websites. Keep up the good work."

"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."

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

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

"Good ALWAYS triumphs over evil."

"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 !!"

"Hamburg doesn't seem like the place to live."

"At one time I thought the common criminal was the lowest form of
the human species, however; due to the actions of elected and
appointed government officials over the last few decades,
they have become the number one  of the lowest form."

"Your Website is full of great content and has a lot of flair to it."

"I pray this will be investigated and everyone will be brought out."

"They do not do anything to generate revenue except raise taxes, nothing else, they are to busy playing big shot with our taxpayer dollars."

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is
for good men to do nothing."   

"In my opinion, Kelly Dohm, along with Melchert law firm, are some of the
most immoral, conniving and most distrustful people I have ever dealt with."

"Good job speaking out, Mr. Odoms."

"Sounds like you've got them thinking, for sure. Everything is so political
now. You can't trust anybody running for office. They all
forget who they are working for."

PLEASE NOTE:
The CITY OF HAMBURG
is now REFUSING TO PROVIDE UPDATED INFORMATION  of how many TAXPAYER DOLLARS  the City has spent for LEGAL FEES and other expenses related to the current LAWSUIT
AGAINST THE CITY !! NO SURPRISE THERE; seeings as how the City
had previously provided
CONFLICTING
$$$ AMOUNTS !!
IT
WORKS !!
REQUIRING THE EMERGENCY SERVICES  OF THE HAMBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT TWICE  IN  TWO DAYS,  I CALLED 9-1-1.
THE HAMBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS PROMPTLY DISPATCHED AND EMERGENCY PERSONNEL  ARRIVED
WITHIN 3 MINUTES BOTH TIMES AFTER PLACING THE 9-1-1 CALLS !! EXTRAORDINARY !!!

THREE TIMES in about FOUR YEARS I've requested the EMERGENCY SERVICES of the HAMBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT. Residents can be ASSURRED TO KNOW the HAMBURG FIRE  DEPARTMENT has PROFESSIONAL, WELL QUALIFIED and DEDICATED MEMBERS who are READY TO RESPOND AT A MOMENTS
NOTICE  anywhere in the City of Hamburg, and the surrounding area, to render their EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES and assistance, to those requiring it.
It Was Like FRIENDS  HELPING A FRIEND !!! SUDDENLY, A 'HOUSEFUL' OF DEDICATED, WELL TRAINED  PEOPLE SHOW UP, MANY OF WHOM I HAD NEVER MET & DIDN'T EVEN KNOW, &
DID WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE IN A PROFESSIONAL, COORDINATED EFFORT THAT ENSURED A 'SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME' !! FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS; That's EXACTLY What It Is !!
Stating "I DON'T THINK I'M GONNA RUN AGAIN" , HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMEMBER TIM TRACY talked publicly at a recent City Council Meeting about being a City Councilmember: "THIS IS NOT A FUN JOB,IT'S ACTUALLY A HORRIBLE JOB" !!  Councilmember Tracy IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT; he's the ONLY CITY OFFICIAL that seems to have ANY common sense !! So, what's the  'common denominator' here ? When I was a City Councilmember, the following were HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS: GRUENHAGEN, LUND, DOHM !! Now, SEVERAL YEARS LATER, look at the same HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS that remain; GRUENHAGEN, LUND, DOHM !! Folks; this is NOT  'rocket science'; nor is it a 'coincidence' !!  ALL THREE OF THEM  are NOT NICE PEOPLE; they 'deserve' each other !! Until City residents GET RID OF TWO OF THEM and DEMAND HONESTY & ACCOUNTABILITY FROM THE THIRD, Hamburg will CONTINUE to be a fledgling 'small town' with DISHONEST & CORRUPT PUBLIC OFFICIALS that are part of a 'regime' that has been in place FAR TOO LONG and is an EMBARRASSMENT to Hamburg's many fine residents !! In this fall's election, by REPLACING HAMBURG MAYOR CHRIS LUND and COUNCILMEMBER ERIC POPLAR, Hamburg residents  will have the opportunity to change all that, 'WI[PE THE SLATE CLEAN' and put Hamburg on the road to RECOVERY, & PROSPERITY and restore our City's DIGNITY !!

HAMBURG RESIDENTS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT THIS FALL !!

PUBLIC  CORRUPTION
FBI's TOP INVESTIGATIVE PRIORITY

It can affect everything from how well our borders are secured and our neighborhoods protected to how verdicts are handed down in courts to how public infrastructure such as roads and schoolsare built. It also takes  a significant toll on the public’s pocketbooks by siphoning off tax dollars—it is estimated that public corruption costs the U.S. government and  the public billions of dollars each year. The FBI is  uniquely situated to combat corruption, with the skills and capabilities to run complex undercover operations and surveillance. Among other areas, the Bureau’s Public Corruption Program focuses on investigating violations of federal law by public officials at the federal, state, and local levels of government; The FBI is uniquely situated to combat corruption, with the skills and capabilities to run complex undercover operations and surveillance. Among other areas, the Bureau’s Public Corruption Program focuses on investigating violations of federal law by PUBLIC OFFICIALS at the federal, state, and LOCAL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT.

No other law enforcement agency has attained the kind of success the FBI has achieved in combating corruption. This success is due largely to the cooperation and coordination from a number of federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to combat public corruption. These partnerships include, but not limited to the Department of Justice, Agency Offices of Inspector General; law enforcement agencies’ internal affairs divisions; federal, state and local law enforcement and regulatory investigative agencies; and state and county prosecutor’s offices.

ATTENTION HAMBURG TAXPAYERS

I've CONFIRMED that the LAWSUIT BROUGHT AGAINST THE CITY (almost) THREE YEARS AGO (07-31-19) & has COST HAMBURG TAXPAYERS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, has now BEEN POSTPONED AGAIN UNTIL JANUARY 2023 !! I've contacted the City of Hamburg in an effort to get confirmation and more information about what I've just learned, but I'm NOT confident that ANY information provided by the City, if at all, will be accurate.information because of their 'history' of DISHONESTY & LACK OF INTEGRITY that I've witnessed & experienced in the past. It's worth a trip to the District Court in Chaska  for me to review the ACTUAL COURT 'FILE' to find out what's REALLY  taking place. You'll recall that the last time I went there, I found out that HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURE JEREMY GRUENHAGEN had LIED TO ME about what was taking place !! (And, if you're wondering; that's the reason  WHY this Webpage was started; PUBLIC OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT !!) And it ALL STARTED IN HAMBURG !!

Imagine that: DISHONEST PUBLIC OFFICIALS that truly believe they are 'invincible', above the law, not accountable for their actions and can LIE TO THE VERY PEOPLE THAT PAY THEIR WAGES; wages that allow them to be able to PAY THEIR BILLS, FEED THEIR FAMILIES, PUT CLOTHES ON THEIR BACKS and PROVIDE THEM WITH MEDICAL INSURANCE when they, or their family members, get sick.  FACT  is STRANGER than FICTION  !!  Please check back later; THANKS.
THERE'S SOMETHING TAKING PLACE WITH THE PUBLIC OFFICIALS IN HAMBURG  AND
THE CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEYS OFFICE THAT YOU WON'T READ IN THE NEWSPAPERS  & WON'T HEAR ABOUT ON THE EVENING NEWS !!
WEBSTER'S DEFINITION: CORRUPTION
