THE FACTS ARE IRREFUTABLE .....
Definition: impossible to deny or disprove

First of all, I am a taxpaying resident of the City of Hamburg. Like many  other  City residents,   I CARE about what takes place in OUR City and how City Officials spend OUR taxpayer dollars.

Second, in approximately early October 2019, I learned that the City of Hamburg was named as the defendant in a Civil Lawsuit brought against the City by former Hamburg City Councilmember Steve Trebesch and his son.

Third, and as a concerned, taxpaying resident of Hamburg, I contacted the City of Hamburg on October 15, 2019 via e-mail and asked for a copy of the Civil Lawsuit served upon the City of Hamburg.

The City of Hamburg, that is 'supported' by taxpayer dollars, REFUSED to provide me, a taxpaying City resident, with a copy of that Civil Lawsuit filed against the City of Hamburg.

Fourth, on October 21, 2019, the City of Hamburg sent  a  City e-mail message (an 'OFFICIAL' City document,) falsely,intentionally and with malice aforethought, stating, in writing, "Since the pleadings have been filed, you can get them from the Carver County Court Administrator."
THE EVIDENCE IS
CLEAR & CONVINCING .....
Definition: highly and substantially more
likely to be true than untrue

After contacting the Carver County District Court Administrator, after making TWO TRIPS to the Carver County District Court Administration Office at the Carver County Government Center and after speaking, IN PERSON, with TWO District Court Deputy Clerks as well as after speaking, by telephone, to a THIRD District Court Deputy Clerk and contrary to what I was informed by the City of Hamburg I was DIRECTLY told that the Court had NO RECORD of ANY pleadings, lawsuits or ANY other documents, involving the City of Hamburg, as of that date !!

Clearly, the City of Hamburg, overtly, and intentionally, LIED and SUBMITTED FALSE INFORMATION to a taxpaying resident regarding this matter, to wit:

Fifth, In response to my November 13, 2019 letter to Carver County District Court Administrator Mary Dalbec, she, in fact CONFIRMED  via official Court documents, that the Civil Lawsuit against the City of Hamburg, was NOT FILED UNTIL NOVEMBER 6, 2019 , possibly as early as NOVEMBER 1, 2019 !!

There is no doubt whatsoever, that the City of Hamburg INTENTIONALLY attempted to deceive me and withhold public information relevant to, and involving the conduct of, the City of Hamburg and it's Public Officials.

The facts of this case, and conduct of the City of Hamburg, and it's Public Officials, speak for themselves.
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.
WITHOUT QUESTION .....

Any e-mail message sent
by the City Of Hamburg
certainly could be defined
and classified as an
"other like document" !!
More Information And Supporting Documents Are Available On My 'ORIGINAL HAMBURG MINNESOTA' Webpage.

And yet; even after knowing all of the above that was taking place, the
HAMBURG CITY CONCIL APPROVED A 4% SALARY INCREASE  FOR THE HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER FOR 2020 !!
(Sounds Like 'Hush Money' To Me !!"
Minnesota Statute 628.61 Subdivision 3 states that a
GRAND JURY SHALL INQUIRE ".....into the willful and corrupt misconduct in office of all public officers in the county."

PLEASE CLICK HERE.

I Assumed (incorrectly) That The Same Principle Stated
Above On The United States Supreme Court Building
Also Applies  In Carver County.

I'll Be 77 Years Old In August. There Are A Lot Of Senior Citizens & Other Elderly People, Like Me, That Live In Hamburg, And In Cities Like Hamburg, And Proudly Call Their City; 'Home'.

People Should Be Totally Dismayed When They Learn That Public Officials Think That They Can Dupe These
Vulnerable City Residents And Take Advantage
Of  Them Because Of  Their Advanced Age.

We CAN'T Allow PUBLIC OFFICIALS To Think That They Can LIE  To Those Of Us Who Pay
Their Wages & Salary !!

Here's an e-mail that I recently received from one of the many visitors to my Website:
"We sound similar in expecting good government, not stalling, being ignored, and what I have experienced in (City name withheld) as self-serving disinterested public officials.  My specific issues have essentially been public safety and health concerns. Local media also seems disinterested.  With only a few years left, unless C19 strikes, then sooner, I'm trying to ignore the ignorant, but like you,
it is difficult, as they are our employees, well paid."

STATUTORY OBLIGATION To PROPERLY  And THOROUGHLY

(See Above !)

In Addition To Advising Residents Of A Potential 10% INCREASE IN HAMBURG PROPERTY TAXES, A Recent Document Sent To Hamburg City Residents Regarding The City's 2020 Budget Stated, "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."

Learning this, I actually requested various documents from the City of Hamburg on October 15th, to find out exactly what's taking place in our City that nobody seems to want to talk about publicly.

Finally, on Friday, November 15th; ONE MONTH AFTER I made my initial request for information to the City of Hamburg, I received a written response (NOT from the City), but from Kelly Dohm, (Hamburg's equivalent of Nancy Pelosi), an attorney affilliated with

Melchert, Hubert & Sjodin

the HIGH PRICED Waconia based law firm that City Officials chose, and continue to choose, to represent 'all of us' in all of the City's VERY EXTENSIVE 'legal matters'.

I'm  sure that everyone, ESPECIALLY HAMBURG RESIDENTS, will be DISMAYED to learn that now, just as of December  31, 2019

BY THEIR VERY
OWN ADMISSION,
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS HAVE ALREADY SPENT
ABOUT $30,000.00 OF OUR HARD EARNED
TAXPAYER DOLLARS

SO FAR ON THIS 'MATTER'  and
you KNOW IN YOUR HEART that the LEGAL BILLS ARE ONLY GOING
TO CONTINUE TO INCREASE SUBSTANTIALLY !!

Dohm's two page letter that I received is now available on my HAMBURG MINNESOTA Webpage. Dohm's letter was also accompanied by a Compact Disk containing relative documents.

I've FINALLY received the 35 PAGE 'Summons & 'Complaint' dated July 30, 2019 and the many accompanying documents served upon the City (made up of residents like YOU and me) and the Response by the City of Hamburg, consisting of approximately a similar number of pages.

Initially, I was going to post the entire civil lawsuit and accompanying documents on this Webpage so that they would be available for everyone to read. However, once I realized the massive number of pages (75+) and documents involved, it is NOT PRACTICAL for me to do that.

Instead, I strongly urge ANYONE, City resident or not, to contact the City of Hamburg and request a copy of the lawsuit against the City, and the related documents. The telephone number of the Hamburg City Hall is (952) 467-3232; or you can e-mail cityadmin@cityofhamburgmn.com.

'CLOSED' CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS  
that I suspected for a long
time had taken place, where
HAMBURG RESIDENTS

PROHIBITED FROM ATTENDING
have also now been
VERIFIED !!

AT LEAST

THREE 'CLOSED' CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS TOOK PLACE
at which this matter was
PRIVATELY DISCUSSED !!
(See MINNESOTA 'OPEN MEETING' Law)

It seems, at least to me, like there's a major 'cover-up' taking place with our City Officials; ESPECIALLY since I've previously 'caught' the City of Hamburg LYING TO ME !!

""THOU SHALT NOT BEAR
FALSE  WITNESS
AGAINST THY NEIGHBOR."

Information that the City of Hamburg
sent to me via a DOCMENTED e-mail PROVED, WITHOUT QUESTION, to be FALSE, once I was able check it out TWICE; which obviously RAISES  ANOTHER SERIOUS QUESTION: Did a Hamburg Public Official 'make up' this lie that they told to me on their own ??

Or, was the City of Hamburg
TOLD TO AGREE TO
LIE TO ME BY
THE CITY ATTORNEY
And/Or By
OTHER CITY OFFICIALS ??

Whatever Took Place, I've Posted The IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE On My HAMBURG MINNESOTA  Webpage Showing That The CITY OF HAMBURG LIED To One Of It's RESIDENTS !!

This Whole 'Thing'
"SMELLS
BAD";
REAL BAD !!

And It All Began To 'SMELL' EVEN WORSE When The Mayor's Term
Of Office Was CHANGED From
TWO Years To FOUR YEARS
Shortly After The
CURRENT MAYOR CHRIS LUND
Took Office !!

Can You Spell
P-O-W-E-R-G-R-A-B ?

The LONGER The City Waited To PUBLICLY RELEASE The Requested Information, The More 'Suspicious' It Appeared And The WORSE It Made
Our City, And It's City Officials, Look  !!

As I've stated previously,  this latest 'mess' recently uncovered (that has been going on for MORE THAN A YEAR within the City of Hamburg and has "VICTORIA" written all over it !!

Residents will recall a few years ago when
HAMBURG
CITY OFFICIALS WASTED
Yet  ANOTHER $50,000.00
TAXPAYER DOLLARS
IN LEGAL FEES !!

When Hamburg Residents Found Out
About That (Via My Website, I Might Add)
They Were OUTRAGED !!

To this day I personally hold Hamburg's CURRENT MAYOR CHRIS LUND
(Hamburg's equivalent to Adam Schiff) FULLY RESPONSIBLE for
THAT HORRENDOUS WASTE
OF TAXPAYER MONEY
as a result of his
REPREHENSIBLE ACTIONS
in Hamburg's
'DOG & PONY SHOW'







when he was a
HAMBURG CITY COUNCILMAN
before being elected as
HAMBURG'S MAYOR !!

WHY is the audio quality of Hamburg City Council Meetings so poor ? And WHY did the City Council decide to 'minimize' the amount of information contained in the published 'Minutes' of its meetings ??

What's taking place in Hamburg is of
such similar magnitude as to what
took place in VICTORIA and yet

ANOTHER HUGE WASTE OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS

I ran across the following in the (first and only) book ("BURNING CORN TO HEAT OUR HOME") that I wrote back in about 2006. I would like to share it with the Visitors to my Website ........

'PREFACE'

"This is a book that will tell you how we beat the high cost of heating our home located in 'Bentonville U.S.A.' (a.k.a. Cologne, Minnesota) during the 2005-2006 fall, winter and spring by installing a corn burning stove. Bentonville U.S.A., just like Deltaville U.S.A., is a quaint little town and is located just down the road from where you live.

Here; everybody helps everybody else, there is no crime and a local automotive shop will make your car's horn louder if they can't fix your brakes. Everyone here in Bentonville U.S.A. speaks the truth, they speak it in English only, crooked lawyers, when discovered, are publicly flogged and barred from our community forever,  elected officials who don't do their jobs are also publicly flogged and are thrown out of office immediately, prohibited from ever holding ANY public office forever and are NOT allowed to 'junk up' our cemeteries by dying here.

We are a simple people; if someone calls 9-1-1 to report a fire, the person answering your call asks, 'How do we get to your home?' Their most likely reply is 'Don't you have those big red trucks anymore ?'

The local Catholic Church has been renamed Winchester Cathedral because of all the shotgun weddings that have taken place and the only scandal going around town is how cheap the people can heat their homes when they install a corn burning stove; like we did.

Every resident of our community prides themselves on helping one another. Bentonville U.S.A. is a perfect community where the water always flows,  the toilets always flush, gas is never allowed to be sold for more than a price of a gallon of milk (or a dollar a gallon, whichever is less) and everyone gets free DSL high speed Internet access."

Ironically, the book that I wrote, "BURNING CORN TO HEAT OUR HOME", was as a result of a very popular and informative Website, very similar to this one, that I designed and created, telling about my experiences with using a corn burning stove for home heating instead of using propane or electricity as a source of heat.

I moved from Bentonville U.S.A. to Deltaville U.S.A. (a.k.a. Hamburg Minnesota) in March of 2007. I selected Hamburg because it was a nice, friendly, 'small town' with well kept homes, few apartment buildings (3), paved roads, city water, city sewer, a Post Office, a nice park and all of the 'advantages' that come with 'suburban living'.

I would soon meet another City Resident; Brad Droege; a Fireman with the Hamburg Fire Department who, I later learned, served with the Hamburg Fire Department for 37 YEARS; serving 19 YEARS as it's Fire Chief !! Upon Chief Droege's retirement from the Hamburg Fire Department (Brad is now Chief Four of the neighboring Norwood Young America Fire Department), I would then meet it's next Fire Chief; Justin Buckentin; who is also a neighbor. Like all Volunteer Fire Departments, the members of the Hamburg Fire Department are an enthusiastic group of dedicated; well equipped and well trained individuals, ready to respond whenever their pagers are alerted to a fire call, a car accident, a medical emergency, etc.

Hamburg's third Fire Chief is Scott Anderson; someone, sadly, that I had never met until I, personally, called the Hamburg Fire Department in April 2019. While there is more information on my Homepage about why they were called; Chief Anderson was one of the Fire Department members that 'showed up' when he (they) were needed most.

Sadly, I haven't had the opportunity to formally meet Chief Anderson or invite him to be my Internet Show guest (as Chief Droege and Chief Buckentin were). But, I DID see Chief Anderson and some of the members of the Hamburg Fire Department 'in action' that fateful April 2019 morning. Being a retired, former licensed Law Enforcement Officer, State and Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician and a Fireman in the United States Air Force (please see my Professional Resume), I can personally assure City and area residents that in case you ever need any type of medical assistance or other service, the Hamburg Fire Department is ready, willing, able and, most importantly, well qualified, to render whatever assistance anyone might need.

They also have an excellent working relationship in conjunction with the Ridgeview Medical Center and it's Ambulance Service where, incidentally, Brad Droege is a Paramedic. The Hamburg Fire Department also has an excellent working relationship with the Carver County Sheriff's Office; I personally witnessed, and experienced that, in April 2019 !!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention Hamburg's diligent Public Works/Maintenance employee, Greg Schultz, who works very hard every day to keep Hamburg 'looking sharp'; regardless of the season. He, like the Fire Department, is an asset to the entire City and it's residents. He and I worked 'shoulder to shoulder' together for more than 16 straight hours on June 19th during the GREAT FLOOD OF 2014 when a storm dropped OVER 5" of rain on the area causing the City to lose  commercial power. The City's lift  stations stopped working  because the entire City was  without electricity, thereby requiring the newly installed emergency generator at the main lift station, (I SAVED HAMBURG TAXPAYERS $8,000.00 ON THAT 'PROJECT' !!) as well as a portable generator at the Jacob Street Grinder Station, to be placed into service to prevent homes in the City from being flooded. In itself, that was quite an 'event'; as was working for the next several weeks in August 2014 with Greg employee coordinating the rebuilding of the Jacob Street Grinder Station after it was demolished as the result of a car accident. And, of course, the freezing of City water service line in the winter of 2013-2014 also caused Greg and I to work closely together. Greg was a great pleasure to work with and still remains a GOOD FRIEND (and a GOOD neighbor) !!

But, sadly, everything dramatically changed in September 2014. I would suddenly, and rudely, learn that  those fellow 'City Officials' and PARTICULARLY, the City Clerk/Treasurer, who I thought were my friends and shared my interest in helping make the City of Hamburg continue to be a 'nice place to call home', were, in reality,  persons that 'had their own agenda', carelessly wasted and 'pissed away' TENS OF THOUSANDS of TAXPAYER DOLLARS and were ALL persons that I couldn't trust; and never should have trusted in the first place !! (There's a 'reason' why Hamburg has the highest property taxes in ALL of Carver County and historically  HAVE BEEN THE HIGHEST   for as far back as I checked with Carver County !!) And, most importantly, I REFUSED to become a member of "THE GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB" and continually be a 'YES MAN' !! A person that 'thinks for themselves appaently had never been a part of, or even heard, of in Hamburg's history.

All of the above being said, what I observed taking place within the City of Hamburg, by it's TAXPAYER PAID PUBLIC OFFICIALS  during my four year City Council term, as well as afterward coupled with what I've discovered (uncovered) in recent months, it's time to write another (my SECOND !!)  book; about what I've witnessed, heard and observed "who did what", since January 2013, when I was elected to the Hamburg City Council, to the present. About my writing 'another book': Who says "History does not repeat itself ?"

And speaking of 'history repeating itself', I find it 'interesting', but not  'coincidental', that once it was learned that long time current Carver County District 3 Commissioner Jim Ische wasn't seeking re-election this fall, Chris Lund, who has two years left of his Hamburg mayoral tern, 'announced' the he was seeking to be elected to Ishe's Commissioner's seat. (You 'heard it first' here, my friends; on my Website !!) And, also not coincidentally; after Lund's 'announcement', former Hamburg Mayor Dick Malz's vehicles have been seen numerous times at the Hamburg City Hall.

Interestingly enough, Malz failed to file for re-election as Hamburg's Mayor back in 2016; instead, he filed to fill one of the two City Council seats that were up for re-election; mine and Councilmember Gregonis'; presentably  to ensure that I wouldn't be re-elected. (I really did NOT want to remain a member of the Hamburg City Council; my filing for re-election was merely symbolic.) After what I had heard, and observed, taking place during those past four tumultuous four years as a Hamburg City Council member, I had absolutely no desire what-so-ever, to associated, in an manner, those types of Public Officials and their moral turpitude; an act or behavior that gravely violates the sentiment or accepted standard of the community !!

Malz failed to secure enough votes in 2016 to be elected to the City Council and he couldn't be re-elected Mayor because he didn't file for re-election to that Office. As a result and because of his greed, he 'walked away with nothing'. But, could Malz be attempting a 'comeback' this fall ?  PLACE YOUR BETS !

STAY TUNED, STAY SAFE, PRACTICE 'SOCIAL DISTANCING', WEAR MASKS WHEN NOT AT HOME & CHECK ON YOUR ELDERLY NEIGHBORS !
A VERY SMART MAN
Once Said.....

"The More You Can Be
In The Limelight, The Better Your Message
Gets Out."

DID
YOU KNOW ??
I RETURNED ALL
OF THE MONEY
TO THE CITY
that I received for
the FIRST  year of my
being a Hamburg City Council Member !

DID
YOU KNOW ??
I REIMBURSED
THE CITY  for the
FULL COST of my monogrammed shirts
purchase by the City
and given out to all
City Officials.

DID
YOU KNOW ??
After witnessing  how
the City of Hamburg wasted Taxpayer
Dollars during my
FIRST year on the
City Council, I
DONATED ALL
OF THE MONEY
that I received for the  SECOND  year of
being a Hamburg City Council Member to the HAMBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT
RELIEF
ASSOCIATION
so  it couldn't be
wasted by the
City Of Hamburg !

(It should come as
NO SURPRISE
to anyone that the
CITY NEVER
ACKNOWLEDGED
this donation.)

DID
YOU KNOW ??
That normally, I
would have
RETURNED ALL OF
THE MONEY I
RECEIVED FOR MY
THIRD & FOURTH YEARS TO THE CITY
like I did during my
FIRST TWO YEARS
on the Hamburg City
Council on the
Hambug City Council ?

But, because of the underhanded and overt tactics that Hamburg City Officials were employing in their, devious, vindictive and malicious attempts to force me off the City Council, I retained noted
'Super Lawyer' Marshall Tannek; a NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EXPERT
on Employment Law and, more
specifically, about
Minnesota's
'Sunshine Law'.
I wanted the professional assurance that my personal response to the 'bullying tactics' against me by the other City Officials was proper and appropriate.

As it turned out, the actions taken against me, by the City of Hamburg Public Officials, were, in fact, improper.

The Other Hamburg City Officials ALL FAILED in their hostile attempt to force me of the Hamburg City Council; their devious and underhanded acts
COST HAMBURG TAXPAYERS
$50,000.00
and  I completed my
ENTIRE FOUR
YEAR CITY
COUNCIL TERM !!

To see the letter that I received from
Attorney Tannek, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

DID
YOU KNOW ??
That HAMBURG TAXPAYERS PAID
FOR A TRIP TO WASHINGTON D.C. Taken By
HAMBURG MAYOR CHRIS LUND ??

What else Lund has done that Taxpayers aren't aware of that makes him the City Council Member that RECEIVED MORE TAXPAYER DOLLARS THAN ANYONE ELSE on the
CITY COUNCIL ??

I've posted that
information !!

And YES; the City
of Hamburg is CHARGING ME  for
PROVIDING

SPENDING HUNDREDS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS
EVERY MONTH FOR MULTIPLE (6+) CELLPHONES ,

Dated July 30, 2019, On The City; About A Year After This Whole 'Mess' Began.

And, while I'm getting 'Conflicting Information' From The City, Just In Case Anybody Besides Me Is 'Keeping Track',
AS OF APRIL 30, 2020, The City Of Hamburg Has SPENT ABOUT $30,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS On This Matter !!

In case you don't know the names of the other Hamburg City Officials at least patially responsible for some of what has already taken place and the TAXPAYER DOLLARS WASTED, their names and e-mail addresses appear publicly on the 'official' Hamburg, Minnesota Website; that is funded by public taxpayer dollars. While not included below, the City of Hamburg 'contracts' with the Waconia based law firm of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN for 'legal services';  usually their ATTORNEY KELLY DOHM  is the City's 'contact person'; I got to know her, her 'tactics' and her 'legal manuevering' all too well during my term as a Hamburg City Council Member, and as she, and her law firm, 'walked away' from the City of Hamburg with $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS !! And yet, ANOTHER $29,235.45 TAXPAYER DOLLARS so far on the CURRENT LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CITY !!

to Jeremy

Jeremy:

I received the 'City Flyer' in the mail; it is well 'laid out' and contained interesting and meaningful information.

One item that 'caught my eye' was about 'pending litigation with property owned in the heart of Hamburg'. I'm assuming that this refers to the issue with former City Council Member Steve Trebesch; I thought that matter was resolved long ago in the city's favor.

Apparently not.

I previously had been following this matter via the City Council Agendas and recordings of the pertinent City Council meetings but ceased to do so once it was determined that the City's position prevailed. However, I am now seeking additional information about this issue.

Specifically, has the City been formally served with a civil lawsuit? If so, I can probably obtain all of the information that I'm seeking by obtaining a copy of that lawsuit.

If no civil lawsuit has been formally served on the City, 1). What are the basic 'issues' against the City claimed by Trebesch, 2). How many taxpayer dollars is he seeking from the City and
3). What is the total amount of taxpayer dollars that have been spent to date on legal fees on this matter since it first came to light (believed to be in 2018).

If a formal 'Release Of Information' document is required to be completed in order for me to obtain this very basic information, please e-mail said form to me.

Thank you.

Mr. Odoms,

Since the pleadings have been filed, you can get them from the Carver County Court Administrator. 

The city has been served with pleadings, and this matter is ongoing.  Based on knowing the status and the ongoing condition of the matter, are your other requests withdrawn pending disclosure of the entire pleadings?

LETTER SENT TO THE
CARVER COUNTY COURT ADMINISTRATOR

November 13, 2019

Ms. Mary Dalbec, Court Administrator
Government Center, Justice Center Building
600 East 4th Street
Chaska, Minnesota 55318

Re: RECORDS SEARCH/REQUEST

Dear Ms. Dalbec:

On October 15, 2019, I learned of civil litigation having been commenced against the City of Hamburg. I contacted the City of Hamburg and requested some simple, basic information regarding this matter.

Six days letter on October 21, 2019, I was advised by the City of Hamburg, “Since the pleadings have been filed, you can get them from the Carver County Court Administrator.”

After receiving this response, I went to the Carver County Government Center and spoke with a very cordial and helpful Court Deputy and explained to her why I was at the Government Center and the information that I was seeking.

For about the next fifteen or twenty minutes, your diligent and very helpful Court Deputy searched for the information that I was seeking. She searched for ANY information relating to the City of Hamburg that may have been recently filed involving the city as well as searched for the information that I was seeking using the plaintiff’s names; Steven Trebesch, Jake Trebesch, Triple T and combinations of any or all of the above.

After (what I considered to be) an exhaustive search by your very courteous Court Deputy, I was confident, because of her admirable efforts, that no such information, like that I was seeking, was on file, or had recently been filed, with the Court.

Two or three days later, I called the Court and spoke, by telephone, with another Court Deputy; explaining what information I was seeking and inquiring if any ‘pleadings’ or other information, documents, etc., had been filed since my personal visit to the Government Center on October 21, 2019. This second Court Deputy advised me that she (too) couldn’t locate an information in the Court’s files involving the City of Hamburg, Steven Trebesch, Jake Trebesch, Triple T or anything using any of the search criteria stated above.

I firmly believe that I was provided with accurate information, by both of your Court Deputies, that the information I was seeking wasn’t in the possession of the Court. I now question

Ms. Mary Dalbec, Court Administrator
November 11, 2019
Paged 2

whether such information even exists or ever existed !!

I respectfully prevail upon you, one final time, to see if any ’pleadings’, files, documents, etc. of ANY kind, in ANY of the names previously mentioned, exist within your Court’s files during the past twelve months from the date of this request.

Thank you in advance for your time, effort and anticipated cooperation in this matter.

Very sincerely,

Richard Odoms
150 Jacob Street
Hamburg, Minnesota 55339

A few days later, I received a response from CARVER COUNTY DISTRICT COURT ADMINISTRATOR Ms. DALBEC, along with an Official Carver County Court Document called a 'REGISTER OF ACTIONS' that is used, by the Court, to 'track' everything that take placer once an action is 'filed' with the Court.

This 'REGISTER OF ACTIONS' document that I received from the District Court Administrator also CLEARLY STATES (and displays) the following: "Filed in District Court State of Minnesota 11/1/2019 11:14AM".

It'll be interesting, indeed; to see the City of Hamburg's 'defense' to the allegation(s) against them. I've got a pretty good idea of how this whole thing is going to 'play out', but I'm keeping that to myself for the time being until everything concludes.

Similarly, numerous other Official Carver County Court Documents that I have obtained ALSO CLEARLY INDICATE  that the lawsuit brought by former Hamburg City Council Member Steve Trebesch and his son Jake, which on October 25, 2019 TOLD ME, IN WRITING, that "Since the pleadings have been filed, you can get them from the Carver County Court Administrator", the against the City of Hamburg, were, actually, NOT FILED UNTIL NOVEMBER 1, 2019 !!
In my America, Public Officials, REGARDLESS  if they're elected, appointed or hired to the position that they hold, CAN NOT BE ALLOWED TO LIE OR DECEIVE THE PEOPLE THAT PAY THEIR WAGES AND SALARIES !!

When they do, they've violated the public trust  and
MUST BE PROSECUTED TO THE
FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW
AND, IF WARRANTED,
REMOVED FROM OFFICE !!

Likewise, when the 'governing body' learns what has taken place and DOES NOTHING ABOUT IT, they, TOO; have violated the 'public trust'; are 'NO BETTER', and ARE AS GUILTY as the employee(s) who lied or was deceptive in the first place.

And, as such,
THEY, TOO, MUST BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE
LAW AND, IF WARRANTED, ALSO REMOVED FROM OFFICE !!

In all of my nearly 77 years on God's Good Earth and ALL during my impressive and stellar nearly twenty year Professional Law Enforcement Career, NEVER have I ever seen so much arrogance,  indifference, hostility, indignity and lack of respect by multiple individuals being paid with TAXPAYER DOLLARS, as I've seen, heard, witnessed and experienced, as with those same individuals who identify themselves as Public Officials, BEING PAID WITH TAXPAYER DOLLARS, for the City of Hamburg !!

Hamburg City Officials forced Carver County Attorney Mark Metz into a very unique situation. As County Attorney, his Office (is supposed to) prosecute criminal offenses that take place throughout Carver County, including the City of Hamburg.

Because of the flagrant acts of the Public Officials of the City of Hamburg, the law, Minnesota Statute Chapter 628.61 Subdivision (3), REQUIRED County Attorney Metz convene a Grand Jury to review the ABSOLUTE EVIDENCE and hear testimony regarding the actions of one or more Hamburg City Officials, because one or more allegations of Public Officer Misconduct has been alleged. However, County Attorney Metz, to his detriment, REFUSED to convene a Grand Jury as REQUIRED BY LAW !!

Much to that detriment, County Attorney Metz's REFUSAL to fulfill his STATUTORY OBLIGATION is certainly a 'game changer' and doesn't reflect well on him in ANY manner

Instead of being the 'Knight On The White Horse' that 'rides into town' to 'enforce the rules' of civilization and 'straighten everything out',  he has chosen, now, to 'join the opposition' because of his personal and professional relationships with those involved.

As this matter progresses (and believe me, it WILL progress), I can assure you that additional eye-opening, relevant information will surface and be brought out to 'set the record straight', about this, and other 'events' that have taken place previously as well; many that I observed take place during my four years as a Hamburg City Council Member. (2013-2016) and after the expiration of my completed term.

And then, of course, there's this that I finally discovered:
DID THE CITY OF HAMBURG CONTINUALLY AND INTENTIONALLY  VIOLATE THE
'STAY AT HOME' ORDER
ISSUED ON MARCH 25TH BY
MINNESOTA GOVERNOR TIM WALZ ??
EVEN AFTER  GOVERNOR WALZ EXTENDED THE 'STAY AT HOME' ORDER ON APRIL 30TH  FOR ANOTHER TWO WEEKS, BOTH  THE HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER AND  THE 'DEPUTY
CITY CLERK' ONCE AGAIN
'LOCKED THEMSELVES  INSIDE'
THE  HAMBURG CITY HALL.
Photo Taken 04-29-20
Photo Taken 05-01-20
CITY OF HAMBURG IS WASTING
MANY MORE TAXPAYER DOLLARS !!
The State of Minnesota issued (and has now EXTENDED) a "STAY AT HOME ORDER" for all but 'essential' employees in Minnesota. TAMARA BRACHT is a part time, non-resident Hamburg City employee in a town of only about  516 residents, who was initially only hired to send out water bills once a month. Bracht could HARDLY be considered to be an 'essential' employee; even in the BEST of times !!

Yet; there they BOTH are; the part-time 'DEPUTY CITY CLERK' who collects about $30,000.00 A YEAR IN WAGES & BENEFITS  and another non-resident City employee, CITY CLERK TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN who collects about $100,000.00 A YEAR IN SALARY & BENEFITS, LOCKED inside the City Hall; a PUBLIC building that the PUBLIC was PREVENTED FROM ENTERING !!

Seems crystal clear to me that the City of Hamburg was
INTENTIONALLY and FLAGRANTLY  violating Minnesota's
"STAY AT HOME ORDER" by allowing this to take place !!

In my view, that's the equivalent of CHEATING;
ordinary citizens DON'T  have that same 'luxury' !!

NOTE: Signed City of Hamburg Data Request form delivered to City if Hamburg on 05-28-20. And, of course; the City will be charging me for the information that I am seeking to impart to the residents of Hamburg and the other viewers to this Website.

Please check back for the response, from the City of Hamburg, to my request for information about how the City of Hamburg is spending Taxpayer Dollars and other information that will be of interest to all.

Thanks !!
HARDLY ACCURATE !!
EVEN IF the City has only six phones @ $43.00/month instead of 9 as it stated, 6 phones X $43.99/month x 12 months comes out to be OVER $3,000.00 A YEAR !!
Because Of All Of What's STILL Taking Place In The City Of Hamburg That I'm 'Uncovering', It Became Necessary For Me To E-X-P-A-N-D My Website So That I Could Provide Local Residents  With More Information About
What's Taking Place In Our Small City Of Only About 516 People, And How
City Officials CONTINUE TO WASTE TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

In An INTENTIONAL, Covert Effort To Try To PREVENT  Me From Obtaining Information, The City Of Hamburg Is REQUIRING  Me To PAY TO OBTAIN PUBLIC INFORMATION About What's Taking Place At City Hall By
City Officials. They Have Now Required Me To PAY $630.00 To Receive Information About
IRREGULARITIES  Discovered In The City's Annual Audit; For The SECOND Year In A Row.

REMEMBER: I Was A City Council Member For Four Years, And 'Saw It All' (And Is STILL TAKING PLACE !!).

April 28, 2020

Thank you, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, for the GREAT JOB that you, and your very knowledgeable  Commissioners and their Staff, are doing during the course of this unprecedented civil emergency !!

Without question, your 'top shelf' leadership, combined with the unselfish dedication of you and your Team, are saving, and will continue to save, countless lives in our state.

To those persons who are demanding the re-opening of Minnesota, I'd like to remind them that this whole 'pandemic thing' ISN'T  about ME !! ME !! ME !!

More realistically, it's about US !! US !! US !! continuing to support the leadership of our elected officials, their staff and persons much more knowledgeable about this virus 'monster' than the general public is, listen to what they tell us and follow their expert guidance.

While much is now known about the Covid-19 Virus, I think it's a safe assumption to say that there is MUCH, MUCH MORE that we DON'T know about and no one should expect 'life' to 'return to normal' anytime soon for that very reason. The risk of any (even) temporary 're-opening' of businesses, regardless of what service(s) they offer or provide, must be carefully weighed against the potential, perceived or actual risks associated with ANY re-opening of ANY business.

Making more people get sick and, yes; even die, just because people are inconvenienced, isn't the 'goal' that we want to achieve here. We want to prevent people from getting sick, take care of them if they do, increase recovery of those unfortunate enough to have contracted this nasty, nasty 'silent enemy' and prevent as many cases/deaths as possible.

There's also something else that apparently these 'protesters' who want businesses to reopen, have forgotten: What about all of the Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, Police Officers, Firefighters and all of the other First Responders who RISK their lives, SEVERAL times a day, trying to give the best care that they know how, to provide hope to those afflicted and affected, for a successful 'outcome'.

I ask those persons protesting for Governor Walz to 're-open Minnesota', would YOU like to 'trade places' with those dedicated Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, Police Officers, Firefighters and all of the other First Responders who are dealing with the very sick, injured and dying, every minute of every hour of every day, trying to 'make them better' so they, like you, can go home to their family, loved ones and friends every night, just like YOU do ?

If Governor Walz, based on the information provided to him by local, state, federal (and yes; even world) medical experts, deems it necessary to extend Minnesota's current 'Stay At Home' Order beyond it's May 4th expiration date, THAT'S FINE BY ME; it will GREATLY BENEFIT MINNESOTA by PREVENTING and LIMITING THE SPREAD of this ugly scourge, POSSIBLY DECREASE THE SEVERITY OF THOSE AFFLICTED and AFFECTED and SAVE LIVES !!

I think it's called "COMMON SENSE 101".

Former Judge Miles Lord
United States District Court
WHY ARE HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS 'ABOVE THE LAW' ??
"COMMON SENSE 101" UPDATE

On December 20, 2019 after witnessing, for THREE MONTHS, what was taking place in the City of Hamburg by it's ELECTED and OTHER CITY OFFICIALS, I contacted the Carver County Attorney, Mark Metz, and advised him of what I was observing taking place. CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY METZ NEVER RESPONDED to my WRITTEN CONCERNS that I called to his attention !!

The last time I checked, when a 'citizen', in 'good faith', reports what he believes to be a crime taking place, or believed to have taken place, that report should be TAKEN SERIOUSLY and THOROUGHLY
INVESTIGATED; NOT MINIMIZED and DISMISSED because of the IDENTITY OF THE INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED !! Strike ONE.

On MARCH 3, 2020, SIX WEEKS LATER, I sent a very detailed and descriptive letter to Carver County Attorney Metz further advising him in greater detail of what I had 'discovered'; this time I also
enclosed corroborating documentation, evidence and information;  further describing what was taking place in the City of Hamburg by it's ELECTED and OTHER CITY OFFICIALS.

(NOTE: Because I believe in honesty, integrity and 'transparencyof government in general and of 'Public Officials' specifically, pretty much ALL of the information I submitted to Carver County
Attorney Metz is available on this Website, and related Webpages, for the public to view.)

As he had done (or not done) previously, Carver County Attorney Metz, once again, NEVER RESPONDED to my WRITTEN CONCERNS !! Strike TWO.

Then, after NOT RECEIVING ANY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT to EITHER of my TWO previous communications him, I AGAIN, on JUNE 10, 2020, sent a THIRD communication to Carver County Attorney Metz basically asking him what his 'intentions' were as to the information that I had preciously called to his attention. Strike THREE.

FINALLY, on SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 2020, I received a reply** from Deputy Carver County Attorney Peter Ivy (who I had previously become aware of during my four year Hamburg City Council term; 2013-2016) regarding my reporting, OVER SIX MONTHS EARLIER, of what was taking place in the City of Hamburg by it's ELECTED and OTHER CITY OFFICIALS. (The Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility takes a VERY DIM VIEW  of attorneys who don't keep in contact with their clients, attorney's who 'ignore' the requests of, or inappropriately respond to, a client. I'm sure colleges and universities teach attorneys that in 'Attorney School 101'.) In this particular case, I, as a taxpaying resident of Carver County, observed and reported, in 'good faith', apparent illegal activity by a Public Official(s). As a former, long-time 'public servant' myself, in the Law Enforcement Profession, I had a compelling sense of duty, responsibility and the moral obligation to report my observations to the (Carver County) attorney whom I had entrusted to properly respond to, and deal with, my observations, concerns. well intentioned good will and subsequent report. 

In the letter I received June 23, 202  from Mr. Ivy, he CLEARLY stated: "It is possible that the City Clerk was simply mistaken with his information......" (It is also possible that a man who walked into a bank brandishing a machine gun or AK-47 also 'was simply mistaken'.) Minnesota Statute 628.81 Subdivision 3 CLEARLY STATES "The grand jury shall inquire into the willful and corrupt misconduct in office of all public officers in the county."

How can ANYBODY DISPUTE THAT STATUTE OR IT'S INTENT ? Read the information I've provided on the pages of this Website, and related Webpages; then make your own decision as to whether or not you think there's 'cover-up' taking place. Or, perhaps; ANOTHER WORD that begins with the letter 'C' !! I can think of a number of other words beginning with the letter 'C' to describe what's taking place; how about YOU ??

Yet; the letter from Mr. Ivy goes on to state, "A grand jury will not be convened in this matter because your letter, in itself, does not constitute probable cause* to believe a crime was committed." (Pass out the 'white canes' to Mr. Ivy and the other employees working in the Carver County Attorney's Office, and put up signs throughout Carver County stating, "IT'S O.K. FOR PUBLIC OFFICIALS TO LIE, BE DISHONEST & LACK INTEGRITY"; Violators Will NOT Be Prosecuted.)

For the Carver County Attorney's Office to state that 'probable cause' doesn't exist in this matter; that is just plain BULLSHIT !! (Now; I HOPE I just got somebody's attention !!) Let me give you a couple of 'text book definitions' of 'Probable Cause':

'Probable Cause' is defined as "A reasonable grounds of suspicion supported by circumstances sufficiently strong in themselves to warrant a conscientious man into believing that a crime has been committed and the accused committed that crime. And then there's this:

'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 Officers and Employees', maybe?

EVERY  'rookie' Law Enforcement Officer, ME INCLUDED, learns the elements of 'Probable Cause' as part of their Law Enforcement Training. I PERSONALLY  learned what 'Probable Cause' consists of when I attended my BASIC POLICE SCIENCE COURSE  training presented by the MINNESOTA BUREAU OF CRIMINAL APPREHENSION at the MINNESOTA STATE PATROL TRAINING FACILITY in Arden Hills !!

But I really don't need 'Probable Cause' in dealing with what I onserved take place by HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS; I HAVE THE ACTUAL, PHYSICAL EVIDENCE in this particular case, the ACTUAL DOCUMENT that I received from, and authored by, the Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer (a copy of which is available elsewhere on this Website) showing ABSOLUTE IRREFFUTABLE EVIDENCE of a CLEAR and INTENTIONAL VIOLATION of Minnesota Statute 609.43 Subdivision 4 of the MINNESOTA CRIMINAL CODE, INTENTIONALLY CONTAINED FALSE INFORMATION that was INTENTIONALLY SENT TO ME BY THE ACCUSED !!

By FAILING TO ACT APPROPRIATELY, the STAFF of the CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE is DIRELECT in it's DUTY and RESPONSIBILITY TO THE CITIZENS OF CARVER COUNTY by FAILING to be IMPARTIAL,
UNBIASED and being PREJUDICIAL in favor of the HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS !!

In addition to NOT REMAINING IMPARTIAL, NOT DOING THEIR JOB because of WHO IS INVOLVED and who will ALSO be 'implicated', the Carver County Attorney's Office is AIDING and ABETTING in the PREVENTION of CITY OF HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS FROM BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMINAL  ACTIONS, BECAUSE OF WHO THEY ARE !!

I've been to this 'Hamburg Rodeo' before when I was a Member of the Hamburg City Council (2013-2016) and observed then what was taking place in our very small City, by Hamburg City Officials. (The CITY WASTED $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS in their (unsuccessful) effort to force me off the City Council so I wouldn't know, and then be unable to reveal, what I was observing take place !!) There is probably nothing more despicable than 'Public Officials' that lack integrity, yet; have unlimited access to Taxpayer Dollars !! And It's HAPPENING RIGHT HERE IN THE CITY OF HAMBURG !!

And equally disgusting: Persons in 'political positions', and lawyers, simply do not 'take on' or challenge other persons in 'political positions', or other lawyers. It's like a 'Code of Silence' exists.

LOOK: When a pharmacist is given a prescription that contains false information intended to obtain prescription drugs illegally, it's called "UTTERING A FORGED PRESCRIPTION (or DOCUMENT"). When a bank teller is given a check by someone who is not authorized to issue the check with the intent to deceive the bank and/or the bank teller, it's called "UTTERING A FORGED INSTRUMENT (or DOCUMENT").

Either way, SOCIETY (and the law) dictates that they get arrested, they go to jail, and then they go to court to be held accountable for their actions. Same principle, in this case. At least it SHOULD be !! But it DOESN'T because of WHO IS INVOLVED !!

The decision, by Carver County Attorney Metz's Office, to NOT PURSUE THIS COMPLAINT OF MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES any further,  REQUIRES MUCH CLOSER SCRUTINY by an IMPARTIAL AGENCY. While the identity of the accused, and his alleged criminal act(s) are publicly known, the desire and REFUSAL of the Carver County Attorney's Office to take SWIFT, PROPER and APPROPRIATE  ACTION, as REQUIRED BY LAW simply because the Carver County Attorney's Office is covertly attempting to KEEP THE IDENTITY OF SUSPECTS & POTENTIAL 'ACCOMPLICES' CONCEALED because of their involvement and status within Carver County and the related 'legal community' itself,  REEKS of IMPROPRIETY !!

With that type of attitude, thinking and 'behavior', it's EASY TO SEE  why CARVER COUNTY TAXPAYERS JUST PAID OUT $450,000.00 BECAUSE CARVER COUNTY OFFICIALS, (Including Carver County Attorney Mark Metz) RELEASED PRIVATE INFORMATION regarding a case in which his Office was involved, AND MADE THAT PRIVATE INFORMATION PUBLICLY AVAILABLE !!

Also, please see Minnesota Statute 609.43 Subdivision 4 of the Minnesota Criminal Code; "MISCONDUCT OF PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE". Additionally, by refusing to take any action, isn't Carver County Attorney Mark Metz, himself, likewise guilty of violating Subdivision 1 of that same Minnesota Statute ?? It is the Carver County Attorney's job to PROSECUTE those who BREAK THE LAW, REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE; not to SHIELD THEM FROM PROSECUTION because of WHO THEY ARE !! 'SELECTIVE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION' in Carver County involving 'PUBLIC OFFICIALS' ? And, has anyone ever heard of Minnesota Statute entitled 'OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE' ?? "Cue CBS NEWS SIXTY MINUTES, DATELINE NBC, ABC's 20/20 and all the rest.

I have always been, and will ALWAYS continue to be, a loyal and staunch supporter of 'First Responders'; the Police Officers, the Firefighters, the Emergency Medical Services Personnel, the 9-1-1 Dispatchers and our Military; my Websites, and my Weekly Internet Shows, convey that fact adequately, emphatically and unquestionably. I realize that everybody is all concerned about holding local Police Officers accountable; I 'get that'. But don't judge the entire Law Enforcement Profession and the deplorable and 'stupid' acts and decisions of a few of the 'rogue ones', that EVERY profession has. Also, how about holding ALL other City, County and State 'Public Officials' accountable for their actions or lack thereof ?? That CERTAINLY would solve the problem we're now facing here, in the CITY OF HAMBURG AND in CARVER COUNTY !! Think about that; even if for just a minute.

ALL County Attorneys have the ETHICAL, MORAL & LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY  to criminally, and IMPARTIALLY, prosecute ANYONE who breaks the law; REGARDLESS Of WHO THEY ARE, THEIR PROFESSION or THEIR STANDING IN THE COMMUNITY !! A criminal is a criminal is a criminal and MUST be dealt with swiftly, appropriately and according to law. 'Cozy relationships' with local elected 'Public Officials' are detrimental to, and demolish, the ethical, moral and legal responsibilities of the proper, impartial administration of the Criminal Justice System that citizens deserve and demand, of those person(s) accused. 

The Carver County Attorney's Office has FAILED MISERABLY in their (statutory) duty and responsibility to Carver County residents to act impartially and responsibly, because of the identity and 'position'(s) of current, and  FORMERCITY OF HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIAL(s) INVOLVED and the possibility of WHO ELSE WILL ALSO BE IMPLICATED in what is taking place in the CITY OF HAMBURG by it's PUBLIC OFFICIALS !! Don't 'dance around' what's taking place; call it what it is: A ''COVER-UP" !!

In OUR America, citizens EXPECT that PERSONS WHO VIOLATE THE LAW, especially 'PUBLIC OFFICIALS', will be HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS REGARDLESS of WHO THEY ARE, the 'position' that they hold'or how important they think they may be. It's as simple as that !! The fine residents of  Carver County EXPECT and DESERVE, 'transparency' and impartiality from, and within, the Carver County Attorney's Office. That HASN'T BEEN ALLOWED TO HAPPENED in this case; because of who is involved as well as who else will also be implicated, once a VIGOROUS and THOROUGH INVESTIGATION is conducted by an 'OUTSIDE, INDEPENDENT AGENCY !!

Then, and ONLY then, will true and proper Justice, be served. Yes; it's as simple as that !!  BE SAFE, WASH YOUR HANDS, WEAR FACE MASKS, STAY HOME IF YOU'RE SICK and PRACTICE 'SOCIAL DISTANCING' !!

Corroborating documentation, evidence and other information was sent to Mr. Metz on March 3rd, 2020 and is already available on this Website and related Webpages. Because Carver County Attorney Metz has 'closed' my report without taking any action, a copy of my five page, March 3rd letter may be obtained by anyone so interested by contacting the Carver County Attorney, Mark Metz,  c/o Carver County Attorney's Office, 604 East 4th Street, Chaska, Minnesota 55318; telephone number 952-361-1400.) If the Carver County Attorney's Office tells you that you can't have a copy because my letter to Carver County Attorney Metz contains 'personal information' about those involved, please tell them that you'll accept a 'redacted' copy of my March 3, 2020 letter, and it's contents, to Carver County Attorney Metz.

HERE THEY ARE: THE ELECTED HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS  THAT VOTED TO GIVE THE CITY CLERK/TREASURER A 4% SALARY INCREASE FOR 2020

In his effort to become elected this fall as a Carver County Commissioner representing District 5, Lund set up a
GO FUND ME Account on June 5th;  apparently to 'finance' his 'election campaign' !!

As of 07-22-20, it has only received $380.00; $300.00 of that was from someone with the same last name.

Between the HAMBURG TAXPAYER DOLLARS Lund received in 2019 and so far this year, combined with whatever he gets paid at his REAL JOB; having to set up a GO FUND ME Account to finance his 'election campaign' for Carver County Commissioner for District 5, tells me he's either really not interested in being elected to that position this fall or is a very poor money manager; the LAST type of person Carver County residents need, want or deserve !!

There's much to be questioned about the 'financial stability' of somebody who launches a GO FUND ME ACCOUNT to finance his Political Campaign' !!

One only needs to look at what happened, and is still taking place in Hamburg where Lund is the Mayor to conclude that Lund is  NOT the person Carver County resident should have watching over our hard-earned Taxpayer Dollars.

I have reached out to Lund seeking information about his suitability for the District 5 Carver County Commissioner's seat that he is seeking.

When his response is received, I'll post it on this Webpage.

On July 18th,
President Trump Ordered All Flags To Be Flown At
Half Staff In Honor Of  Congressman John Lewis.

Governor Walz Ordered
All Flags To Be Lowered
The 19th Of Every Month
To Honor The Victims
Of Covid-19.

Believing That They Are
'ABOVE THE LAW', The City Of Hamburg, Once Again, As They Have Done So Many Times In The Past,
TOTALLY IGNORED
Those
Executive Orders !!

WHERE  Is Their 'ACCOUNTABILITY ' ??

After I posted this picture earlier, the flag had been mysteriously been lowered to half staff when I drove by City Hall five hours later !!
EVEN THOUGH The City Of Hamburg REFUSED To Provide A Copy Of The Pending Lawsuit Against The City of Hamburg, And EVEN THOUGH Official Carver County District Court Documents PROVE, BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, That


THE HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER LIED,
(INCONTROVERTIBLE EVIDENCE HAS BEEN OBTAINED FROM CARVER COUNTY DISTRICT COURT)

The Hamburg City Council
STILL APPROVED A 4% SALARY INCREASE FOR THE
HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER FOR THE YEAR 2020 !!

PLUS, In Another e HUGE WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY, The Hamburg City Council Voted To PAY 100% Of A (New) HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY For (Non-City Resident) TAMARA BRECHT, The 'PART TIME', (20 Hours Per Week) 'Deputy City Clerk' At A  COST TO TAXPAYERS  OF $6,586.00 ANNUALLY !!  (Who's EVER Heard Of A 'PART TIME' EMPLOYEE  Receiving FULL HEALTH INSURANCE BENEFITS ??)

I've obtained a copy of the ORIGINAL 'Job Posting'. While I CAN'T tell you 'why', I CAN show you 'how' a 'part time' position
intended to pay only $10-12.00/hour, evolved into a high priced, TAXPAYER MONEY WASTING position that
also now PAYS 100% of that 'PART TIME' employee's HEALTH BENEFITS !!   O.P.M. !!

With the sudden onset of the Covid-19 Corona Virus throughout Minnesota, everyone's lives have changed
dramatically, and radically.

Many of you are wondering what the status is with the City of Hamburg as a result of their intentionally preparing, and submitting, a document to me containing false information that they knew
to be fraudulent !!

Indeed; this 'case' is still very much 'open'. Basically being 'covered-up' by the City, and now by the Carver County Attorneys Office,
you WON'T HEAR ANYTHING about what's taken place by listening to the (poor quality) audio recordings of the Hamburg City Council meetings and you WON'T READ ANYTHING about what took place in the 'official' City Council Meeting Minutes.
You'll only find out by continually
visiting this Webpage.

In Chapter 609 of the Minnesota Criminal Code; what took place in the City of Hamburg is called "MISCONDUCT OF A PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE".

To update everyone, I forwarded all of the facts and information, as well as the overwhelming, supporting evidence and documentation of what's taken place in Hamburg, by The City's Public Official(s), to Carver County Attorney Mark Metz. Because the allegation(s) INVOLVES HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS, the law REQUIRES County Attorney Metz to
present the facts and evidence to a Grand Jury for review of what's taken place in the City of Hamburg, by it's Public Official(s).
Minnesota Statute 628.61
Subdivision 3.

But, because of the PUBLIC OFFICIALS INVOLVED and the identies of OTHER PERSONS THAT WILL ALSO BE IMPLICATED, CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ HAS
REFUSED TO TAKE ANY ACTION !!

To see the (obviously) prejudicial, biased and flawed response that  I received
from the Carver County Attorneys
Office as a result of being a
'good citizen' and my reporting
PUBLIC OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT,

Needless to say, I am VERY DISAPPOINTED but now; not really surprised, that Carver County Attorney County Attorney Metz placed the importance of his 'relationships' with those other Hamburg Public Officials involved, above the responsibilites of the position to which he was elected by Carver County residents.

The actions of Carver County Attorney Metz
in this matter equate to you calling the Fire Department to your 'burning home' and when the FD arrives, they don't even attempt to extinguish the fire at your house.

Instead, the Fire Chief directs firefighters to spray water on your neighbors home to 'protect' it from catching fire, because the Fire Chief works with you neighbor almost every day. Meanwhile, your home burns to the ground.

Nevermind that your house was intentionally 'torched' !

That's what we're talking about here:
'PROTECTION'.

Several weeks ago, I provided Carver County Attorney Metz with copies of all documents  and irrefutable evidence that I've collected since these underhanded misdeeds by Hamburg City Officials began to unravel last fall and become known, to assist him in fulfilling his statutory requirement and duty.

I (erroneously) assummed that he would do his job, impartially and responsibily. Obviously, I was wrong; he didn't.

His 'friends' and 'professional associates' are more important to him than the proper discharge of his responsibilities.

That is PATHETIC !!

Please check back frequently as this matter continues to proceed.

But bear this in in mind: There will be NO GRAND JURY INQUIRY INTO WHAT'S TAKEN PLACE BY HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS; you've got CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY MARK METZ to thank for that !!

There is NOTHING more 'cancerous' that will erode the public's 'trust' in government faster, than dishonest and deceptive Public Officers and Employees who can't be trusted; and whose wages and salaries are paid withTAXPAYER DOLLARS  earned by hard-working citizens !!

They, ALL of them; MUST (and the LAW REQUIRES) that they be 'brought to justice' and be held accountable for their actions.

REGARDLESS of WHO THEY ARE or of the 'POSITION' THAT THEY HOLD !!

JUST LOOK AT THE "MESS "  THAT THE CITY OF HAMBURG IS IN !!
In Addition To WASTING $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS FOR ATTORNEY FEES A FEW YEARS AGO Because Of what The City Council Did, As Well As Everything That Has Taken Place In The City Of Hamburg That You've Read About On This Webpage And On My ORIGINAL HAMBURG MINNESOTA Webpage,
THE CITY OF HAMBURG IS CURRENTLY BEING SUED; $29,235.45 TAXPAYER DOLLARS ALREADY WASTED ON ATTORNEY FEES !!

The MAYOR  Of Any City/Town Is The Sole Person That Is ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE  For EVERYTHING THAT TAKES PLACE   In  His/Her City/Town,  As Well As Being
TOTALLY ACCOUNTABLE  For The Actions  Of The City's/Town's  Other Officials And Employees When Those Officials And  Employees  Are Acting In Their Official Capacity On Behalf Of The City.

CHRIS LUND is the  MAYOR OF HAMBURG.  As such, LUND  is the Hamburg City Official that is ABSOLUTELY RESPONSIBLE for ALLOWING  what has/is taking place, unchecked, in the City of Hamburg.

But, WITHOUT EVEN FINISHING HIS HAMBURG MAYORAL TERM, Lund Sought To Be Elected As The Next Carver County  District 5 Commissioner And Bring All Of His 'HAMBURG BAGGAGE'  With Him !! Election Results Show That LUND FINISHED SECOND TO LAST. He Will Now Have To Return To Hamburg Along With All Of His 'Baggage' That Accompanies Him Wherever He Goes.  Also, Like My Other Letters Sent To Him As Hamburg's Mayor, LUND NEVER RESPONDED To My Four Page Letter That I Sent To Him On July 21, 2020 Seeking Information & Answers From Him As Mayor And As A Carver County Commissioner Candidate. Lund's SILENCE Is Not Only DEAFENING !! The Fact That LUND ONLY RECEIVED 14 VOTES From Residents IN HIS OWN CITY Screams 'LOUD & CLEAR' Of How Little Support He Has From Residents Because Of What's Taking Place In Hamburg !!

It'll Be 'Business As Usual' In Hamburg For Residents For TWO MORE YEARS Until Lund's Expires. Get Out Your Checkbooks; Stay Tuned; And Please Check Back Frequently.

Yep;
Welcome To Hamburg !
Yep;
Welcome To Hamburg !
I did what I considered to be the RIGHT THING TO DO when I witnessed something taking place by a Hamburg Public Official(s)
that I  reasonably believed to be, not only against common decency, but also, AGAINST THE LAW !!

I submitted irrefutable evidence and documents of what I observed take place to the Carver County Attorney's Office, but instead of
my  concerns being taken seriously and promptly investigated, I was TOTALLY IGNORED  for SIX MONTHS  because of WHO
ELSE WAS INVOLVED and would be potentially EXPOSED !! NOBODY EVER TOOK THE TIME TO EVEN TALK TO ME !!

Only when I wrote my THIRD  letter and questioned why my concerns were being seemingly ignored, did I receive a letter telling
me that, in fact, MY CONCERNS WERE, in fact, NOT WORTHY OF ANY CONSIDERATION OR INVESTIGATION.

Suddenly, after experiencing this injustice first hand, I have an ENTIRELY NEW FOUND SYMPATHY & UNDERSTANDING  for all African American and other Minorities, regarding the way they've been 'treated' and what they've experienced for far too long !!

They DIDN'T !!

I can't help but notice a substantial increase of current and former Hamburg City Officials slowly driving south on Jacob Street, then turning around at the TC&W railroad tracks and slowly driving back north. They must be checking out the current  'reconstruction' of  South Jacob Street. Yes; that's what they're doing, OF COURSE !!
