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."
"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
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
"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',

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."
"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."

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.)
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.

about the excessively corpulant female; I don't hear any singing.
