FACT IS STRANGER THAN FICTION !!

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

LOOK NO FURTHER

HAMBURG CITY HALL
To See
WHAT'S WRONG WITH AMERICA
And
WHY !!
THANKS !! to the many friends and the 'clear thinking' Hamburg
residents that supported my recent Hamburg Mayoral effort !!
It was ONLY TWO DAYS after the election and 'the word' had already gotten back to me why some of the CURRENT (and  FORMER) CITY OFFICIALS didn't want me to be elected because of the 'protection' the City now has against me because I'm ONLY a CITIZEN. As such, 'the City' now makes the decision whether or not I should have access  to information about the City that I request, and whether or not they'll 'disclose'  it to me. The
'City'  believes (wrongly) that City residents, and I, are too stupid to see through their 'guise' of what's taking place  and their motives
for doing so !! That's just ONE (of many reasons) why I filed for Mayor.

EVERYONE KNOWS, that as MAYOR; I would have had FULL ACCESS to ALL CITY INFORMATION, FINANCES, 'EVENTS', (yes; EVEN MISCONDUCT and INAPPROPRIATE EMPLOYEE & CITY COUNCIL MEMBER BEHAVIOR) that I, and other residents, now; are PREVENTED from KNOWING ABOUT !! And WE'RE PAYING THE BILLS !!

If I had been elected Mayor, I would have IMMEDIATELY begun 'digging into' what's been taking place in our City for the past six years as well as asked the MINNESOTA STATE AUDITOR to conduct a FULL AUDIT & ACCOUNTING of the CITY'S FINANCIAL RECORDS for the PAST THREE YEARS !!  (Remember the surreptitious 'GREAT HAMBURG CELL PHONE CAPER' from a couple of years ago that I 'uncovered' ??) Once their Department found out what was taking place, the Minnesota State Auditor 'put a stop to that' IMMEDIATELY !!

As citizens, I/WE, DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY to request 'outside agency' involvement and investigation. It's 'THE OLD SECRACY GAME' that's been taking place in Hamburg for YEARS and they don't want what's taking place, EXPOSED !! Their devious and secretive behavior still continues; unabated and undisclosed and will do so, again; for the NEXT FOUR YEARS !!

But, as MAYOR, I would have had the AUTHORITY TO REQUEST A FORMAL AUDIT, and some 'City Officials' would PROBABLY GO TO JAIL !!  And, 'THE CITY' KNOWS THAT !! 

Hence, my election to Mayor, was 'successfully 'blocked'; as I PREDICTED would be attempted; MORE THAN TWO MONTHS AGO on my Website (www.HAMBURGMINNESOTA.com) !! (As I believe most everyone knows, I've ARRESTED, and JAILED, PUBLIC OFFICIALS, INCLUDING a LAWYER, before during my nearly twenty year Law Enforcement career !!)

I have absolutely NO TOLERANCE for dishonest and unscrupulous PUBLIC OFFICIALS who are paid with TAXPAYER DOLLARS and VIOLATE THE PUBLIC TRUST !! I take their 'dubious actions and unethical behavior' VERY SERIOUSLY as should ALL City residents; by DEMANDING ACCOUNTABILITY !!

I'm curious if anyone else, besides me, has now 'figured out' why there was such a MASSIVE EFFORT to PREVENT me from being elected Hamburg Mayor. Please send me your (CONFIDENTIAL) thoughts & comments: [email protected]

OTHER 2022 ELECTION RESULTS

I've contacted the Hamburg City Clerk/Treasurer's Office and asked for the names of the 5 'Write-In' Candidates for Mayor and the 2 'Write-In' Candidates for City Council. For the Mayor's position, Current City Council Member, Tim Tracy (good choice) received two votes, former Hamburg Mayor Richard Malz (BETTER than LUND) received only two votes and 'Donald Duck' (also BETTER than LUND) is believed to have received only a single vote (which wasn't counted).

As for the two 'Write-In' votes received for the two City Council Member seats 'up for grabs', one was for former City Council Member Steve Trebesch; the only other vote was for Current City Council Member Tim Tracy, whose term is NOT expiring this year. 

Interesting to note how former Hamburg Mayor Richard Malz 'faired' (or didn't fair) in his latest 'effort' to be elected to the City Council this year. As I recall, he didn't seek to be re-elected as Hamburg's Mayor in the 2016 election; instead, Malz filed for City Council in a 'coordinated effort' with Hamburg's other PUBLIC OFFICIALS to ensure that I wouldn't be re-elected to the City Council that same year. With Malz filing for City Council that year instead of seeking to be re-elected as Hamburg's Mayor, that created a vacancy in the Hamburg Mayor's Office which INSTANTLY resulted in a drooling and saliva dripping 'mongrel dog' sitting outside the door to the Hamburg Mayor's Office in the fall of 2016.

That' 'mongrel dog' turned out to be none other than Hamburg City Councilmember CHRIS LUND whose City Council term also expires on December 31, 2016. I'm sure there were  some 'behind the scenes conspiratorial negotiations' (as there OBVIOUSLY were this year) to ensure that my 2016 re-election bid for the Hamburg City Council; which I 'didn't really want' because of the previous two and a half years of witnessing the 'turmoil' and 'vindictiveness' that EXISTED WAY BACK THENwouldn't be successful. And it wasn't. I was ANYTHING but disappointed.

Oh, by the way, let's not forget that their 'foolishness' and 'small town politics' to
prevent me from being re-elected to the Hamburg City Council in 2017
LASTED TWO & A HALF YEARS
and
COST HAMBURG TAXPAYERS' $50,000.00 in LEGAL FEES !!

But oddly enough and like their 'plan' back in 2016, their (not very well thought out) 'plan' for this year's election once again 'backfired' on them. Malz didn't get enough votes in 2016 to be elected to the Hamburg City Council; he ALSO didn't even get enough votes in this year's election to be elected to the Hamburg City Council; he only received TWO 'write-in' votes this year for Mayor. (By contrast, I received 50 votes for Mayor.)

Whoever was 'in charge' of a 'RE-ELECT MALZ for HAMBURG MAYOR' write-in campaign sure 'screwed up; BIG TIME !! As a result, we're they're STUCK with LUND for the next four years !!

That pretty much leaves Malz (Hamburg's answer to Harold Staasan) 'sitting on the sidelines'. I MUCH RATHER would have been 'defeated' by Malz; a guy that's got some 'class' and personality, rather than by egotistical and 'self-servicing' LUND; who is ONLY  'looking out' for LUND !!

Their 'greediness' to prevent me from being elected Mayor of Hamburg this year basically has
'SUNK' their (own) ENTIRE 'ship' and leaves LUND 'at the helm' of Hamburg for ANOTHER
FOUR YEARS !! Apparently that's what 224 voters living in Hamburg 'wanted'.

Well; your 'got what you wished for'; now they're STUCK with LUND for the next four years !!

GOD HELP US with CHRIS LUND being re-elected as the City's Mayor !! (And wait until you learn one of the 'first things' that LUND did when he FIRST became Mayor in January 2017 !!)

When Hamburg City Councilmember Scott Feltmann passed away while in Office, one of the 'applicants' seeking to be 'appointed to fill the City Council vacancy was (you guessed it), former Mayor and defeated City Council Candidate, Richard Malz. But, apparently the City Council had already 'had enough' of Malz, and DECLINED to appoint him to finish up Council Member Feltmann's term. Instead, the City Council appointed JASON BUCKENTIN (PAY ATTENTION; you'll be hearing that name AGAIN) to fill the remainder of Council Member Feltmann's term.

So; here's the 'box score' for Malz (as they say in baseball): "THREE UP; THREE DOWN; NOBODY LEFT." But, there's always 2024; 'place your bets' ! (I'd 'support' him' !!)

For the record, MALZ would have been (and was) a MUCH BETTER MAN for the position of Hamburg Mayor that LUND !! Sure; Malz and I 'had our differences', but at the
'end of the day' we BOTH were 'looking out' for the betterment of the
City of Hamburg and the welfare of it's residents !!

Councilmember Tim Tracy 'got it right' when he made the statement,
"How can this town have so many problems ALWAYS."

And well he might ask.

Councilmember Tracy: That's an EASY QUESTION TO ANSWER:
NO LEADERSHIP; NO ACCOUNTABILITY !!

CLICK HERE to see Councilmember Tracy's comment; just ONE of the MANY derogatory comments by HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS contained in some SIXTY PAGES of RUDE,
CRUDE, INAPPROPRIATE, VULGAR 'INTERNAL' CITY E-MAILS, that is PUBLIC INFORMATION that I've obtained; one just has to know how to obtain it.)

Certainly; those INTERNAL E-MAILS do NOT provide a
'POSITIVE IMAGE' of ALL of the DECENT HARDWORKING CITIZENS of HAMBURG !!

You'll also be interested in this:

SITUATIONS WHERE THE LAW APPLIES: A meeting is a “meeting” for purposes of the law when a quorum or more of the governmental body is gathered—in person or by interactive technology, whether or not action is taken or contemplated. The open meeting law does not address whether the governmental body must keep or publish meeting minutes, hold a meeting for a particular purpose, or allow members of the public to address the body. For any particular governmental body, there may be other laws or charter provisions that address those topics.

13D.06 CIVIL FINES; FORFEITURE OF OFFICE; OTHER REMEDIES.

Subdivision 1.Personal liability for $300 fine. Any person who intentionally violates this chapter shall be subject to personal liability in the form of a civil penalty in an amount not to exceed $300 for a single occurrence, which may not be paid by the public body.

But HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS will NEVER BE PROSECUTED FOR VIOLATING THE LAW because THEY HAVE 'PROSECUTORIAL IMMUNITY because of the 'COZY ARRANGEMENT' ALL of them have with the biased and prejudicial CARVER COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE; the CRIMINAL JUSTICE AGENCY that (is SUPPOSED to) PROSECUTE people who VIOLATE THE LAW REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE or what POSITION THEY HOLD !!

The City Of Hamburg, Minnesota (Population 566) Is Unique Because It Probably Is The
ONLY CITY IN THE UNITED STATES
CURRENT MAYOR
ARRESTED FOR DWI, FOUND GUILTY OFCARELESS DRIVING & CONVICTED OF
DOMESTIC ASSAULT !!
TO SEE THE ACTUAL COURT DOCUMENTS; PLEASE CLICK HERE

The initial purpose of this Website about the City of Hamburg (Minnesota, Population 566) was 1.) To 'get the attention' of City residents as to what
was/is taking place in OUR City by OUR PUBLIC  OFFICIALS, and 2.) How TENS OF THOUSANDS of TAXPAYER DOLLARS were/are
being WASTED because of the UNNECESSARY, UNCONTROLLED SPENDING and
LACK OF ACCOUNTABLITY of HAMBURG'S PUBLIC OFFICIALS !!

The results of the recent election in November CLEARLY SHOW that the residents of Hamburg 'DON'T CARE' about what's taking place in
THEIR City !! They had the opportunity to IMMEDIATELY begin to 'turning things  around', but, instead; they 'opted' for the
'status quo' and all of the 'secrecy' & 'back room dealings' that go along with it, to remain !!

They  must now LIVE WITH THAT DECISION for the NEXT YOUR YEARS !!

Therefore, from this point forward, the intent of this Website about the City of Hamburg is now to SPOTLIGHT HAMBURG to 'raise awareness' and
provide additional information and 'graphics details' to my fellow TAXPAYING CITIZENS in Hamburg as well as throughout Minnesota and the
United States of what can happen in THEIR 'small' town or city when ELECTED OFFICIALSand PUBLIC EMPLOYEES have
NO OVERSIGHT or ACCOUNTABILITY, and how the 'CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM', that is SUPPOSED to ensure
that UNSCRUPULOUS PUBLIC OFFICIALS who commit 'PUBLIC MISCONDUCT', FAILED
MISERBLY because of  WHO THEY ARE and/or WHAT THEIR POSITION IS !!

"SOMEHOW I HAVE A FEELING WE'RE
NOT IN HAMBURG ANY MORE."
Former HAMBURG FIRE CHIEF (now NYA FIRE CHIEF 4) BRAD DROEGE (whose wife Barb was a Hamburg election judge), 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  and PERSONAL GAIN is UNDOUBTEDLY, during my nearly 80 YEARS on God's Good Earth; one of the

BIGGEST DISAPPOPINTMENTS OF MY LIFE !!

BE WARY OF FRIENDS -
"THEY WILL BETRAY YOU MORE QUICKLY,
FOR THEY   ARE EASILY AROUSED TO ENVY.

THEY ALSO BECOME SPOILED & TYRANNICAL."

TYRANNICAL Definition:
"Exercising power in a cruel or arbitrary way."

Doing what he did; in the manner in which he did it, PUTS DROEGE 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 with the HAMBURG FIRE
DEPARTMENT, the NORWOOD/YOUNG AMERICA FIRE
DEPARTMENT and the RIDGEVIEW MEDICAL
CENTER AMBULANCE SERVICE
that he REPRESENTS !!

In addition to 'DISGRACING' and BRINGING 'DISREPUTE' to his PROFESSIONS, he
has ALSO 'CHEAPENED' and 'DISCREDITED' the American 'election process'.

There's nothing good to be said about the character of a person who works EVERYDAY
alongside other fellow Firefighters, E.M.S. personnel AND LAW ENFORCEMENT who
supports a MAYORAL CANDIDATE WITH A CRIMINAL RECORD that includes
DOMESTIC ASSAULT
instead of a long time friend and a seasoned, experienced &
professional retired LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER !!
Somehow, I thought he had more 'class' than that.

I truly loved, trusted, admired, adored, worshipped, respected and thought
the world of and, erroneously; thought Brad was a VERY GOOD 'CLOSE
PERSONAL & TRUE FRIEND',

BUT , instead; he (mis)used his 'influence' on the ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL,
the Hamburg MAYOR, the CITY CLERK/TREASURER and the
HAMBURG RESIDENTS, to ENSURE that my 'election
bid' for Hamburg Mayor would NOT  be  successful.

If my Mayoral campaign had been successful,  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 !!

ELECTION FRAUD DEFINITION:

Sometimes referred to as ELECTION MANIPULATION, VOTER FRAUD or VOTE RIGGING, involves ILLEGAL INTERFERENCE with the PROCESS of an ELECTION either by INCREASING the vote
share of a FAVORED CANDIDATE, DEPRESSING the
vote share of RIVAL CANDIDATES, or BOTH !!

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' !!

THREE MONTHS AFTER THE ELECTION and I'm STILL receiving comments
from residents regarding the results of the Hamburg Mayoral Election;
here's the latest comment that I received regarding Droege:

"That is how those type of people operate, goes to show you, one never knows who is in your corner until you get in the ring. Unfortunate for your friendship with him, but I am sure the friendship aspect was one sided, meaning you to him. Pretty low of a man who is suppose to be this big well respected Hamburg number one citizen at least in his own mind."

"Money does strange things to ones ego if you let it, obviously he has. Why he backs Lund is a testement to his ignorance of mankind in general."

Keep 'shaking the tree', Dick. Those rotten apples are sure to fall out."

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  instead of being 'UPFRONT' and HONEST.

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
'MEDDLING' that took place.
MEDDLING Definition:
"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 for a despicable wife beater and an ignorant incumbent potty mouthed dumb ass in 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 !!"

"Sorry, Dick."

"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 [email protected]!#."

"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."

"Thank you for all the shows you do and your informative Websites."

"One of the good guys; you."

"I look at your Wesite occasionally. Keep up the good work."

INITIAL MAYORAL CAMPAIGN WEBPAGE !!

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

www.THEDELTASHOW.com/HAMBURGHOMEPAGE.html 

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 LIVEIMPOVE 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.)


Asked At A Recent Hamburg City Council Meeting:
"How can this town have so many problems ALWAYS?"
Hamburg City Councilmember & 'Vice' Mayor Tim Tracy

Answer To City Councilmember Tracy's Question:

Our 'Small Town' In Minnesota With ONLY 566 Residents Has NO LEADERSHIP
NO OVERSIGHT, and NO ACCOUNTABILITY Of The PUBLIC OFFICIALS That
The Residents Elected; Thinking That Our City Would Be Managed
Efficiently And That Our  Taxpayer Dollars Spent Wisely.

Keep checking this Webpage frequently; you know what they say
about the excessively corpulant female; I don't hear any singing.




You May THINK That The City Of Hamburg Is 'Governed' By City Residents. NOT SO !!
        Hamburg Is 'RULED' By A Mayor & FOUR City Councilmembers, ONE City Clerk/Treasurer     
Then, As Previously Stated On My MAYORAL CAMPAIGN WEBPAGE,
Throw In A Couple Of Former Mayors & A Retired Fire Chief Who Believe That They STILL Have Some
Type Of 'Authority' .......
(But They REALLY DON'T !!)
They, Too; Are
ALL 'INVOLVED'
In Trying To
'COVER UP'

ANYONE NOW HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT THE
CITY OF HAMBURG NEEDING A 'FULL AUDIT' ??

It was widely known after I filed for election that IF I was elected as Mayor of
Hamburg, I would have called for a  FULL & COMPLETE 'AUDIT' of
the 'Finances'  of the City for the LAST THREE YEARS !!

Those companies, individuals, PUBLIC OFFICIALS (AND EMPLOYEES) that received TAXPAYER DOLLARS to which they were NOT ENTITLED TO
RECEIVE, would have been REQUIRED to RE-PAY ALL
of the 'ILL-GOTTEN' TAXPAYER DOLLARS
THAT THEY RECEIVED !!

Upon announcing my Hamburg Mayoral Candidacy last August, some 'DERANGED PERSONS' have been ATTEMPTING  to 'HACK' my Websites.  (ANOTHER act of 'MEDDLING' !!) ANYBODY  with 'HALF A BRAIN' living in
Hamburg can easily figure out the identity of the PERSONS INVOLVED !!   Even though their 'HACKING' ATTEMPTS  have been THWARTED and UNSUCCESSFUL, I have now INCREASED  the security of ALL THREE
of my Websites and their associated Webpages.  Depending upon which browser visitors use to view my Websites,  the 'ZOOM LEVEL' (THREE DOTS; UPPER RIGHT) may also have to be adjusted accordingly.
ELECTORAL FRAUD, sometimes referred to as ELECTION MANIPULATION, voter fraud or vote rigging, involves
ILLEGAL INTERFERENCE with the process of an election, either by INCREASING THE VOTE SHARE OF
A FAVORED CANDIDATE, DEPRESSING THE VOTE SHARE OF RIVAL CANDIDATES, or both.

MEDDLING, As Described Herein; "To INTEREST ONESELF in what is NOT
ONE'S CONCERN; INTERFERE WITHOUT RIGHT or PROPRIETY."
“Deeply embedded in our identity as Americans is the bedrock principle that our citizens must be free to exercise the right to vote without fear of interference and to have that vote counted without being compromised.
The DOJ and this office will work tirelessly to protect those principles and to protect
our citizens' voting rights to ensure our process is free from election fraud. Anyone
with  specific information about fraud, discrimination, or other interference
with the integrity of our election process should immediately make
that information available to my office, the FBI, or the
Civil Rights Division of the DOJ.”

HAMBURG RESIDENTS: DID YOU KNOW ...........
WITHOUT RECONCILING HIS 'ATTENDANCE RECORD', a 4% SALARY INCREASE for
HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN for 2023 was
'AUTOMATICALLY APPROVED' by the HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL
at its final 2022 meeting, citing that his
'.... job performance exceeded expectations'.

One
TRUE FACT
(among MANY others) is that
BECAUSE OF HIS ACTIONS
the City has been
WITHOUT A 'DEPUTY' CITY CLERK
and
WITHOUT A PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEE ABOUT FOUR MONTHS !!

That makes one wonder:  ARE  those TWO POSITIONS REALLY NECESSARY !! The City seems to have 'gotten along
just fine' for the past FOUR MONTHS without those (EXPENSIVE) positions being filled, certainly the 'DEPUTY' CITY
CLERK position is TOTALLY UNNEEDED !! (You'll recall that I pledged to 'ABOLISH' the position !!)

Something else that the City refuses  to take responsibility for is the lack of applicants for the City's two job vacancies that occurred last September: The City's 'reputation' of Hamburg NOT BEING A GOOD PLACE TO WORK
because of it being a 'HOSTILE & TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT'.

The erratic, sporadic and 'unpredictable' 'VIOLENT OUTBURSTS' (as DOCUMENTED in the CITYS OWN RECORDS)
that occurred behind the 'closed doors' of City Hall !! This TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR which I
learned about and PERSONALLY WITNESSED (and REPORTED) as a City Councilmember, was
ALSO WITNESSED by AT LEAST FOUR former City employees; EVEN a 'VENDOR' !! 

Yet, the INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR of HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN,
that 'drives away' good, qualified potential City employees, was described as
'job performance exceeded expectations'. WHAT A JOKE !!

WHY DOES HE DESERVE A 4% SALARY INCREASE; let alone WHY DOES HE EVEN STILL HAVE A JOB ??

The 'Massive Effort' To Prevent Me From Being Elected Hamburg Mayor Was Because, As A Former City Councilmember, I Am The
ONLY PERSON That's NOT INVOLVED That KNOWS The 'Inner-Workings' Of  The City Of Hamburg, Some Of The
'LESS THAN DESIREABLE' 'Circumstances' And Would Be Familiar  With 'WHAT'S TAKEN/TAKING PLACE',
Know 'WHO WAS INVOLVED',  Know 'WHAT TO LOOK FOR' and Know 'WHERE TO FIND IT' !!

Folks; this ISN'T 'ROCKET SCIENCE'; quite simply, I 'KNEW (& KNOW) TOO MUCH' !!  If anybody can't
understand what's taking place; CHECK THEIR PULSE !!

To preserve ANY 'Moral Rectitude' that MAY still exist in our City and for the WELFARE of our City, CREDIBLE Hamburg residents
MUST COME FORWARD, request, and participate in an INDEPENDENT, IMPARTIAL, FULL & COMPLETE 'AUDIT'
of the 'TIP OF THE ICEBERG': GRUENHAGEN'S 'ATTENDENCE' for the past year; MORE if impropriety is discovered !!

(I firmly BELIEVE that what such a 'basic audit' of his 'work schedule' would 'reveal', will 'KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF' !!

You May Have (Correctly) Assumed That I HAVEN'T Been 'Idle' Since November 8th; Or Even Before. Prior To Filing
On August 16th To Be Elected As The Next Mayor Of Hamburg, I Secured,Downloaded (And SAVED), From
The CITY'S OWN WEBSITE; 'OFFICIAL' CITY DOCUMENTS That CLEARLY SUPPORT
and SUBSTANTIATE That 'SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN DENMARK'
and has been for quite some time !!

I Began Constructing Yet Another Webpage Consisting Of Those Additional 'OFFICIAL CITY DOCUMENTS' And Other Information That I've Obtained To Further DEMONSTRATE To HAMBURG RESIDENTS The  DIRE
NECESSITY For An INDEPENDENT, 'OUTSIDE SOURCE' To Come  To Hamburg And ALSO
Conduct An OBJECTIVE, IMPARTIAL EXAMINATION Of The City's 'Books' And Other
'FINANCIAL RECORDS' OF THE CITY !!

PUBLIC CORRUPTION: The FBI’s top criminal investigative priority because it
poses  a fundamental threat to our national security and way of life.

Quote Previously Appearing In The MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE NEWSPAPER:
"The FBI will vigorously investigate allegations of
corruption of public servants. No quarter will be
given to those  who violate the public trust."

A CLANDESTINE GOAL
Of A Few City Residents And
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS To 
'MANUPULATE' The OUTCOME
Of The 2022
HAMBURG MAYORAL ELECTION For Their Own Selfish Benefit !!

(WHICH THEY SUCCESSFULLY ACCOMPLISHED !!)

POLITICAL, PREJUDICIAL CORRUPTION Results In A MASSIVE FAILURE Of The CRIMINAL JUSTICE
SYSTEM  In CARVER COUNTY  That Allows PUBLIC OFFICIALS In HAMBURG To Believe They Are
INVINCIBLE  And NOT ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR  ACTIONS !! They Also Have NO FEAR
Or THREAT OF REPERCUSSIONS  And Are IMMUNE FROM CRIMINAL PROSECUTION
Because Of
WHO THEY ARE  And  WHO THEY KNOW !!

FIRST AND FOREMOST, 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 past and present CITY OFFICIALS and 'OUTSIDE SOURCES' !!  (Who should ALL BE IN JAIL !!)

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 a PROMINENT PUBLIC SAFETY EXPERT & HAMBURG RESIDENT used
AGAINST me rather than  being 'UPFRONT' and HONESTBut, that's TOO MUCH TO EXPECT of the 'seedy' individuals involved !!
Last fall, Hamburg City Councilmember and 'Vice' Mayor Tim Tracy mused; "How can this town have so many problems ALWAYS."
(If The City's 'VICE MAYOR' Is Asking That Question, IMAGINE What The RESIDENTS Are Asking !!)

One ONLY has to look at the THREE 'COMMON DENOMINATORS'
over the PAST  TEN  YEARS  to answer Councilmember Tracy's query !!

UNTIL THE 'COMMON DENOMINATORS' OF THE 'HAMBURG REGIME' ARE REMOVED & HELD
ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS, HAMBURG WILL ALWAYS HAVE A 'DARK CLOUD' HANGING OVER IT !!
