IT IS WORTH REPEATING that this whole matter is NOT about me 'losing the election'; that's a 'risk' that one takes when filing for PUBLIC OFFICE. I can (and have) 'accepted' that fact that I was 'defeated', and have 'gotten over it' (not that there really ever was anything to really 'get over'), yet; it is CLEARLY EVIDENT the HAMBURG MAYORAL ELECTION was UNQUESTIONABLY 'INFLUENCED' by 'OUTSIDE SOURCES' !! (Who, by the way, should ALL BE IN JAIL !!)
Rather; this is all about HONESTY, INTEGRITY and ACCOUNTABILITY; three CRITICAL FACTORS that are sorely missing within the Hamburg City Hall and is (or SHOULD be) cause for concern for ANY self-respecting, honest and 'God fearing' Hamburg resident!! I'm TRULY DISAPPOINTED in the sinister, 'back-door', underhanded tactics that this PROMINENT PUBLIC SAFETY HAMBURG RESIDENT used AGAINST me rather than being 'UPFRONT' and
ELECTION MEDDLING IN HAMBURG ?? Everything considered, something really
'STINKS' with the local Hamburg election. (Was Vladimir Putin in town recently
'MEDDLING' ??) I DON'T have a problem with the overall Carver County election
'process'. Rather, my 'issue' is with the 'tactics' employed locally to ENSURE
that the results in Hamburg, will favor; and will benefit, the City's PUBLIC
OFFICIALS & CITY EMPLOYEES involved in, and responsible for, the
"To interest oneself in what is not one's
concern; Interfere without right or propriety."
In addition to HOW it happened, WHO was involved and WHY it took place, there are also MUCH BIGGER ISSUES that what's taken place are 'extensions and continuations' of what's been taking place for the PAST SIX YEARS; only with some additional 'players' now getting themselves 'involved' so they can STILL retain 'control', (AS I PREDICTED MONTHS AGO); see

"I can not believe the results or the stupidity of the residents of this little city. They vote
Poppler. The lies will continue as will the misuse of our tax dollars. Unbelievable
my friend !"
"Hi Dick - sorry to hear and see that. I was hoping for some change, but ultimately it's
really hard to displace incumbents. Keep up with the info sharing on your Website."
"WE ARE SCREWED !!"
"The 'blue wave' made it to Hamburg."
"Par for the course. Sorry to hear that hotdog won in Hamburg."
"The better person did not win; I guess some people do not care."
"Makes me throw up."
"Well, I'm so sorry to hear that the residents of Hamburg did not choose the better man."
"Sorry you did not win. But there's always 2026 !! Start planning your next strategy."
"That sucks !! I'm sorry!!"
"Very, very sad."
"You did it your way, keep the faith, you're better than the others."
"Politics can be nasty."
"Your Grandpa was not born there; that's what 'counts' there."
"What can I say ? Hamburg lost a great opportunity."
"Very sorry to hear the election results. Proud to know a guy who entered politics in his 'Golden Years.' I was looking forward to your inaugural parade. You riding on that decorated hay wagon pulled by a big John Deere waving to a crowd of 25."
"The election was an utter embarrassment. When, if ever, will people wake
the **** up ?"
"Sad day in Hamburg."
"Spot on, sir."
"Tells you about those voting and where their values are."
"Typical of most small towns. If you're not born & raised, you are considered an 'outsider'."
"Dick, plain and simple...You Got ****ed."
"Sorry to hear about the election results in Hamburg. What a crock of $@!#."
"A holiday break may be helpful. Stress, some can be self induced, enjoy the good things in your life, let the low lives enjoy their tainted life, you have a lot of good to offer all of us."
"WOW ! Sorry to hear that."
"Many things are out of sync in our world today, but better may be a drink; a drink into what is beautifuland detached from the poison of politics. Keep the faith, dump the dirt; the world of politics ain't worth a squirt."
"Greetings, Dick. Yes, fact is stranger than fiction, but the foolishness wasn't restricted to Hamburg. In the general election democrats continued their pattern of voting against their own self interest. They elected and reelected politicians who will continue down the same path of destruction that put us into our current situation of rampant crime, corruption, open borders, expensive energy, and inflation. I just don't understand."
"Wow ! Thank you Dick. Fun reading, as always."
"Hahahaha. Hamburg sounds like the White House. Great stuff, Dick. I'll check it out regular now. It's too good to miss."
"I have you on my cell phone home page now. I love it. Thanks sir."
"That sucks so bad, I'm sorry to hear that. I've lost faith in the whole election process to be quite honest. Money buys all unfortunately."

The information that follows will give visitors to this Website some revealing insight as to what goes on in the small town of Hamburg, Minnesota 55339; population (about) 566. Information provided herein is FACT BASED and if ANYONE, Hamburg resident or not, has a concern about anything appearing herein, please let me know at THEDELTASHOW.com; any 'concerns' expressed will be 'checked out' and any 'adjustments' made or 'corrections' published, if indicated. My ORIGINAL Webpage about the City of Hamburg that Website visitors had access to prior to my filing for election to Mayor of Hamburg, will soon be undergoing a MAJOR REDESIGN (items being deleted, added and information updated), but is ONCE AGAIN AVAILABLE at
I would like to SPECIFICALLY call you attention to the coming 'absence' of the Webpages that I VOLUNTARILY designed and updated during the past year (without request) for the Carver County Sheriff's Office and the Carver County Health Department. Sheriff Jason Kamerud and Dr. Richard Scott, BOTH of them; did, and do, an EXCELLENT JOB in their respective Departments to help keep Carver County residents safe and healthy. I was pleased with the opportunity to use my 20+ years of Website-buiding experience, to 'showcase' their fine Departments and the dedicated Carver County employees working in each Department, on my own Websites.
The reason those two Websites no longer exist is primarily because of the amount of time required to keep them updated and 'fresh', plus; I think the 'public' already knows, and appreciates, the efforts of those two Departments and their 'Department Heads'.
While I thoroughly enjoyed creating and updating those two Websites, my 'focus' is now being 're-directed' to matters which more urgently need my attention; PARTICULARLY since the results of the grossly 'lopsided' (224/50) election were disclosed.
And, by the way; DID ANYONE NOTICE that
THE OTHER MAYORAL & CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES DIDN'T HAVE
ANY TYPE OF PLAN FOR THE FUTURE OF HAMBURG ??
As your Mayor, I had the potential (AND A PLAN) to HELP MAKE OUR CITY a BETTER PLACE TO LIVE, IMPOVE the BENEFITS and SERVICES that CITY RESIDENTS receive to INCREASE
OUR QUALITY OF LIFE, REDUCE OUR TAXES by CUTTING WASTEFUL & UNNECESSARY
SPENDING and requiring ACCOUNTABUILITY of our City Officials.
Instead, ALL HAMBURG RESIDENTS are now ASSURED to have to experience THE SAME SITUATION and CONDITIONS for the NEXT FOUR YEARS that we've be FORCED TO ENDURE for the PAST SIX YEARS !! (PLEASE CLICK HERE to see the THREE PAGE document; 'MY VISION'; which was my 'outline' for the future of the City of Hamburg had our recent election been allowed to progress normally, instead of City residents having to endure the consequences of ELECTION MEDDLING.)
Brad Droege was someone who I BELIEVED IN and thought was a TRUSTED & TRUE FRIEND' with COPIOUS AMOUNTS of INTEGRITY. 'Stabbing me in
the back' by committing the acts AGAINST me that he did, at MY 'EXPENSE' for
his OWN BENEFIT & PERSONAL GAIN is UNDOUBTEDLY one of the
BIGGEST DISAPPOPINTMENTS OF MY LIFE !!
Doing what he did; in the manner in which he did it, PUTS HIM IN THE SAME CATEGORY
of the other SEWER RATS that he 'schemed' with !!
Droege's actions are DEPLOREABLE, REPREHENSABLE and an EMBARASSMENT; not only to the fine residents of Hamburg, but to the City of Hamburg itself; as well as to the PUBLIC SAFETY POSITIONS he holds and BOTH the HAMBURG and NORWOOD/YOUNG
AMERICA FIRE DEPARTMENTS and the RIDGEVIEW MEDICAL CENTER
AMBULANCE SERVICE that he REPRESENTS !! Such 'tactics' also
'cheapen' and discredit the American 'election process'.
He has also 'DISGRACED' and BROUGHT 'DISREPUTE' to his PROFESSIONS !!
Check back for more information about how someone who I loved, trusted, admired, adored, worshipped, respected and thought the world of and, erroneously; thought was a
VERY GOOD 'CLOSE PERSONAL & TRUE FRIEND', used his 'influence' on the
ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL, the Hamburg CITY CLERK/TREASURER and
HAMBURG RESIDENTS, to ENSURE that my 'election bid' for
Hamburg would NOT be successful. If it was, he would no
longer be in 'control' of the City; EVEN THOUGH
he has NO LEGAL AUTHORITY OF ANY KIND
with, or within, the City of Hamburg !!
Like A Lot Of Other PUBLIC OFFICIALS, I'll NEVER Trust Him Again & Have REMOVED ALL Of My Websites That I Designed For, About And To
Honor & 'Promote' Him & His 'Cause' !!
