ABOUT MY WEBSITES ...............

My Website, www.hamburgminnesota.com, as you learned from reading above, was first launched by me, as a private citizen, on August 21, 2007; shortly after having moved to the City of Hamburg. From that time forward, it's primary focus was on local and area events and items of interest. My Websites, over which I have always had sole, total control of the information they contain, became, and continue to be, very popular  'showpieces'.  As of March 8, 2017, my two, combined Websites have now eclipsed more than 63,000 'Hits'; a testament to their popularity.

In August 2012 after witnessing what was taking place within the City of Hamburg, I made the decision to file for one of two vacancies on the City Council that would become available on January 1, 2013. I had some very serious concerns that I wanted brought out and it was evident to me that as a resident, I would only receive 'lip service' from City Officials. I used this Website to 'publicize' my election campaign. After the ballots were cast and counted, as I recall, my nearest 'competitor', former City Council Member Larry Mueller (who chose not to file for reelection), received something like 29 'Write-In' votes with Robert Gregonis receiving about 24 'Write-In' votes. I received about 150-something votes. Upon being elected, this Website would then become my OFFICIAL HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL MEMBER Website.

While I was clearly elected to office, former Council Member Mueller declined the offer and opportunity, by the City Council, to be appointed to the remaining City Council vacancy (a two year term as I recall) as the 'runner-up' vote-getter. Then, the offer was made to 'Second Runner-Up' Gregonis. Unlike Mueller, Gregonis accepted the appointment offered him by the City Council. IMAGINE: In essence, Gregonis, who didn't even file for the position, became a Hamburg City Council Member BY DEFAULT !! I thought, "This CAN'T be good !!" (As it turned out, it WASN'T !!) But, there's one more  important point that you probably haven't realized or didn't even notice, but certainly you  should be made aware of.

You'll note that while I DID file for re-election this past fall, I did NOT actively seek anyone's vote !! Did you get ANYTHING from me in the mail, or see ANYTHING posted on my Website, asking for your support and/or for your vote last fall ?? Obviously, the answer is a resounding "NO" !! The November 5th letter I sent to all City residents (see below) merely explained some of what was really taking place within our City. My intent in filing for re-election was to send Hamburg residents the  clear message that while I'm not a 'quitter', I also WANTED NO PART WHATSOEVER of what had already taken place in our City by its own City Officials. So, I didn't 'seek any votes'.

I have always been a staunch proponent of citizens "knowing what 'their government' is doing". During my four year ELECTED City Council term, it was ALWAYS my intention, by means of my OFFICIAL HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL MEMBER Website, to let Hamburg residents know what was 'going on' within their City by their City Officials. The primary 'target audience' of my Website then as a City Council Member, was the Hamburg resident. But it's popularity also attracted thousands and thousands AND THOUSANDS (over 47,000, in fact) of others from all around  the world. It seemed that people were interested in, and wanted to know, just what 'goes on' in 'Small Town America'.

Now, I've shifted the 'focus' of this Website from my 'target audience' of residents within the City to those other loyal, interested souls that found my Website about what was taking place in Hamburg, so interesting. And revealing. REMEMBER THIS: I've had four years to amass my information. I also have downloaded, directly off of the City's very own 'official' Website, almost four years of Hamburg City Council Meeting recordings, too, for you to get a 'sense' of the 'ugly atmosphere' at some those City Council Meetings !!  Everybody who ever spoke (or screamed) at a Hamburg City Council Meeting, was recorded. STAY TUNED !! (Sound card required.)

AN 'OPEN LETTER' TO ALL HAMBURG RESIDENTS & ANYONE ELSE VISITING THIS WEBSITE

November 5, 2016

Other Hamburg City Officials have blamed me, and would like everyone to believe, that it was necessary for them to WASTE (about) $50,000.00 of your hard earned taxpayer dollars on legal expenses, to initiate various legal actions and ’maneuvers’ against me and my very popular and informative OFFICIAL CITY COUNCIL MEMBER Website, www.hamburgminnesota.com.

That simply is not true. Instead, this massive waste of  taxpayer ‘hush money’ is an attempt to ‘silence’ me, and my Website, because I’ve exposed, on my Website, ‘unsavory’ information about just some of what is really taking place in our small City of about 516 residents, by some other City Officials.

Below, I've partially explained why they are trying to 'silence’ me in an attempt to prevent me from further exposing their heinous acts taking place, as well as their 'scurrying around' in an attempt to ‘block’ my attempt to be re-elected to a second term as your City Council Member.

I am truly puzzled how any City Official could/would even think that, based on my 18+ year impeccable Law Enforcement career, I would accept, tolerate or even 'overlook', much of what was/is taking place within our City. In many instances, what was, and is, taking place has totally violated many of my personal beliefs, morality and 'core values'; beliefs, morality and 'core values' that I believe Hamburg residents also share with me.

When I refused to ‘go along’ with whatever it was that some of the other City Officials were trying to ‘steamroll’ and 'cover up', I then became the target of their relentless, vicious and personal attacks; which have continued for over two years. I even was physically accosted by a fellow City Council Member after a recent City Council meeting and hastily had to flee City Hall and retreat to the safety and security of my car because my personal safety was in jeopardy !!

Those of you that are acquainted with me professionally and personally (and that includes persons living in the City of Hamburg), know me for the truly honest and professional person that I am. And yes; I certainly like to enjoy life, have fun and ’help out’ my ‘fellow man’ when it’s needed, possible and if I can.

My professional acquaintances include two ‘sitting’ County Sheriffs, the now retired, three term Carver County Sheriff (who regularly appeared as a guest on my very popular Internet programs and shows), the former Carver County Attorney and now a ‘sitting’ District Court Judge of Minnesota's First Judicial District, a whole host of active and retired professional Law Enforcement Officers including a former St. Paul Police Chief,  a United States Senator, the former Director of the Minnesota Crimes Task Force,  the Executive Director of the Minnesota Sheriff's Association, two former Hennepin County Attorney’s Office Criminal Investigators, several former Minnesota Police Chiefs, former and current professional Public Safety coworkers (sworn and civilian alike), the former Director of the Minnesota Department Of Public Safety, a former Minnesota Attorney General, a Computer Security and Identity Theft expert, numerous former Paramedics, the Presidents of at least two Minnesota companies, hundreds of past and present wonderful, dedicated co-workers, Team Members, Supervisors and Managers at my current place of employment (where I have continuously worked since August 2006 as a Security Officer), as well as countless other personal friends and acquaintances. (To learn a little more about me,  PLEASE CLICK HERE.)

If ANYONE thinks that I would do ANYTHING to sacrifice the personal reputation that I enjoy, and treasure, with any or all of those persons listed above, then they must believe in the rabbit that hides the colored eggs under their sofa at Easter time.

When I say that there is a major ‘cover up’ taking place‘ in the City of Hamburg involving City Officials, I mean just that. I am so suspect of the 'highly questionable and devious nature’ of some of our other City Officials because of what's taken place coupled with what I have heard, seen and observed; particularly during the past two years, that I filed a formal complaint, on approximately June 13, 2016, with Sheriff James Olson of the Carver County Sheriff’s Office reporting to him my observations of what has been taking place within the City of Hamburg by certain City Officials and I  have requested that  an impartial, full, complete and thorough criminal investigation be conducted of what has already taken place.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, read and digest, the content of my OFFICIAL HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL MEMBER Website. I hope that it, and the information that it contains, assists you in making your decision as to who to elect as your City Officials in this fall’s General Election.

Please don't drink and drive, please don't text while driving, please wear your seat belts and please support those men
and  women in  uniform that make our  communities, cities, towns, counties, state  and country, safer  places in which to
live, learn, work and play.

Sincerely,

The, totally unexpected, 'surprise'
"GRUENHAGEN AMBUSH"
launched against me by Hamburg City Clerk Jeremy Gruenhagen at a City Council Meeting in late 2014 that 'started everything' and subsequently has cost Hamburg residents somewhere around $50,000.00
of OUR taxpayer dollars !!
"YELLING & SCREAMING"
Just one example of all of some of the chaotic times of the screaming and yelling that took place during 'open' Hamburg City Council Meetings but mostly at 'closed' City Council Meetings that the public was PROHIBITED FROM ATTENDING !!
It appears that my
"UTILITY PAYMENT EVAPORATED" !!
The City admitted that incorrect utility bills were sent to some residents (about 100!!); mine was one of them. When I brought this up at a City Council Meeting, Hamburg City Clerk Treasurer Jeremy Gruenhagen stated a 'corrected bill' had been mailed out earlier in the day. Yet, Gruenhagen would later state publicly at a City Council meeting that the City had
NO RECORD of ever receiving my personal check that I personally deposited in the Sewer/Water 'dropbox' at City Hall !!

"What a mess, and farce, and taxpayers are footing the bill.  Where is common sense ?"  "I looked at your website – you have quite the story."

"Dick, I don't think people care, plain & simple. The fact they don't "know" is apathy, laziness for many, some are working several jobs, trying to raise a family, and are exhausted."

"How much money did the City of Hamburg waste on attorneys fees related to your website?" (So far; the city has spent, as near as I can calculate, about $33,000.00 !! At the Budget Meeting in September, Hamburg Mayor Richard Malz called for the 2016 budget for legal fees to be INCREASED by an ADDITIONAL $9,000.00; for a total of $15,000.00 for 'legal expenses' in 2016 !!)

"Hello Mr. Odoms, I saw your website in the NYA Times.  Bravo!!!  Who says an “alien implant” (a term I’m using to explain how some of us feel who are not “native born sons”) can’t be heard and can’t have some say?  I’ve heard one disgruntled newcomer to the local area describe it this way:  “You’re a nobody and have no real sense of belonging or feeling welcome unless you have three generations of ancestors buried in the local cemetery.”  The citizens of Hamburg and the surrounding area are very fortunate to have you “telling it like it is”.  Don’t let anyone intimidate you into giving up.  You are a TRUE public servant and so much more!!!  More small towns around here need a Richard Odoms.  Perhaps you will be the “spark” that will spread."

METEOROLOGIST
PAUL DOUGLAS
in the Friday, May 19, 2017 edition of the
MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE NEWSPAPER
Tell a friend about this page
There's a 'new catch-phrase' that's 'cropped up' when it comes to SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS. We all know that a 'WATCH' means that conditions are 'ripe' for a serious 'WEATHER EVENT' to occur; a 'WARNING means that a serious 'WEATHER EVENT' is imminent. According to well known (and former WCCO-TV) Meteorologist Paul Douglas, "The USA is on track for the busiest tornado year since 2011. That was the year Tuscaloosa and Joplin were hit. Why have we suddenly come out of a 5-year tornado drought? Two reasons: the same jet stream pattern that generated a stormy treadmill for the western USA created a wind shear profile ripe for tornadoes. Also, record warmth in the Gulf of Mexico has primed the pump with warmer, more unstable air."

"If you hear of a PDS (Particularly Dangerous Situation) TORNADO WATCH issued nearby you want to pay very close attention. It means the atmosphere is locked & loaded for violent, long-track tornadoes. A "TORNADO EMERGENCY" is more dangerous than a "TORNADO WARNING". It means a large, CONFIRMED tornado is moving into an urban area."

"Severe weather season in Minnesota and Wisconsin usually peaks in June; the most severe T-storms are yet to come."

Here's Something 'Interesting' ...........

Speaking of Jacob Street, I find it  intriguing the number of times that the same few vehicles slowly drive south down Jacob Street from County Road 50 and when they get to the Twin Cities & Western Railroad track crossing, they turn around and then, slowly, drive back north on Jacob Street toward County Road 50.

They must be driving slow because of all of the children in the area.

OK, SO PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS, NOW, THAT
NO SUCH  RECORDING EXISTS. HE'S OUR PRESIDENT, SO WE MUST TRUST WHAT HE SAYS.
BUT THERE ARE TAPES THAT EXIST IN HAMBURG. WITH A 'NEW' CITY COUNCIL IN PLACE, I'M CALLING ON THEM TO RELEASE THOSE TAPES & RELATED INFORMATION TO THE PUBLIC SO THAT HAMBURG RESIDENTS CAN KNOW THE TRUTH OF WHAT WAS SAID & WHAT REALLY TOOK PLACE !!
(And Cost Hamburg Taxpayers In The Neighborhood Of $50,000.00 In Legal Fees To Waconia Law Firm Melchert, Hubert & Sjodin!)

Also, Did The City Auditors Determine That The City of Hamburg, Because Of The Actions Of It's (Highly Overpaid) City Clerk/Treasurer,  VIOLATED MINNESOTA STATE LAW  In 2015 ? Read What Their CITY OF HAMBURG 2015 ANNUAL REPORT Said Then You Decide:

"During our audit procedures, it came to our attention that there were no approved written records of the City Council's meetings for several meetings in 2015." "Minnesota Stature 412.191 Subdivision 3 REQUIRES the City to publish the 'official council proceedings or a summary conforming to Statute 331.A01, Subdivision 10.' " "The publication should occur within thirty days of the Council Meeting." "Approval of prior minutes is not part of each meeting's agenda; THE CITY IS OUT OF COMPLIANCE WITH THE APPLICABLE STATUTE." (Emphasis added.)

Did This Occur Because Of NEGLIGENCE On The Part Of Hamburg's City Clerk/Treasurer ?? If So, Was He Ever HELD ACCOUNTABLE  And/Or Ever DISCIPLINED By The City Council You Ask?? OF COURSE NOT !! (The 'Good Old Boys Club' !!)

As A Hamburg Resident AND A Former City Official, I Am EMBARASSED That The City Of Hamburg Would KNOWINGLY Allow This To Have Happened; And When It Was Discovered, THE CITY COUNCIL TOOK NO ACTION Thinking, Presumably, That No One Would Ever Know. I Knew Because I Cared. But Because Of The Rampant, Ongoing 'Good Old Boys Club Mentality' And Hostility Of The Other City Officials, I Was Powerless To Do Anything !! Like Was The Case In So Many Other Things While I Was Serving My Four Year City Council Term.
COULD WE HAVE SOME RESPONSIBILITY & ACCOUNTABILITY, PLEASE ??

Did You Know That Gruenhagen, Who Doesn't Even Live In The City, Is PAID WELL OVER $75,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS ANNUALLY IN WAGES & BENEFITS ?? (Corrections Invited!)

And, Did You Know That Gruenhagen Also HAS AN 'ASSISTANT' Who, Like Him, Doesn't Live In The City Either, That Receives Yet ANOTHER $800.00-$1,000.00 PER MONTH OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS !!  (Corrections Invited!)

Hamburg 'Public Works' Guy ?? WORTH EVERY PENNY HE'S PAID !! Fire Chief ?? DITTO !! 'City Hall Administrative Staff' Consisting Of One Full-time AND One Part-time Employee For A City Of Only (About) 240 Households Housing Only (About) 516 Residents ?? OBSCENE !!  (If Anyone Wants To Offer Any Corrections To My 'Figures' & Information, Please Contact Me At thedeltashow@gmail.com.)

Spending About 20-25% Of Our City's Annual Budget On 'Administrative Staff' At City Hall MAKES NO SENSE !! Perhaps It's Now Time For The City Of Hamburg To 'Time Share' Our Office Of City Clerk/Treasurer (And Legal Services) With Another Small, Nearby City Or Township And Save Taxpayers, For BOTH Jurisdictions, A 'Butt-Load' Of Our Hard Earned Taxpayer Dollars !!
HAMBURG 'NOT SO MAGNIFICENT' 7
(Three Recently Elected City Council Members Specifically Excluded)

In Case You're Wondering, Hamburg City Officials During My Four Year City Council Term Were Richard Malz, Mayor, Robert Gregonis, Chris Lund, Myself & Steve Trebesch, City Council Members, City Staff Were Jeremy Gruenhagen, City Clerk/Treasurer (Who Once, At A City Council Meeting Equated Himself To The CEO Of A Company!), His 'Assistant' Tamara Bracht, Deputy Clerk/Utility Billing Clerk And Kelly Dohm, Employed By The Waconia Law Firm Of Melchert, Hubert & Sjodin was the (contract) City Attorney. (And, Whose Law Firm Was Paid Somewhere In The Neighborhood Of $50,000.00 TAXPAYER DOLLARS IN 2015 & 2016 ALONE !!) (Corrections  Invited!)

CITY OF HAMBURG 2016 ANNUAL REPORT  APPARENTLY UNAVAILABLE TO CITY RESIDENTS/FORMER COUNCIL MEMBERS

It Seems Logical To Me That Because I Was Still An Elected Official For The City Of Hamburg in 2016, I Am Entitled To Receive A Copy Of The CITY OF HAMBURG 2016 CITY OF HAMBURG ANNUAL REPORT Prepared By The Certified Accounting Firm Of Abdo, Eick & Meyer's Because It Contains Pertinent Information Relevant To My Term As A City Council Member. Further, It'll No Doubt Provide Additional Information Substantiating Some Of My Comments, Concerns, Observations And Other Little Known Information That I Discovered And Have Publicly Disclosed On This Website.

On June 13th, I Requested, In Writing, As A City Resident And Also As A Former City Council Member, A Copy Of The CITY OF HAMBURG 2016 ANNUAL REPORT So I Could Determine, Among Other Things, If What I Discovered In The CITY OF HAMBURG 2015 ANNUAL REPORT That Took Place In That Year, Occurred Again In 2016; My Final Year As A Hamburg City Council Member.

To Date, I Have Not Received The 2016 CITY OF HAMBURG ANNUAL REPORT That I Requested. A Written SECOND REQUEST Was Similarly Refused/Ignored !! WHY ?? You DON'T Really Have To Be A Genius To 'Figure Out' What's Taken Place In Our Small City Involving Past (And Present) City Officials.

Remember: For My Four Years As A City Council Member, I Intimately Saw, Heard, Observed And Witnessed, (and shared with you), Some Of What Was 'Going On' In Our City. What I Saw, Heard, Observed And Witnessed During Those Four Years, Was Very Disturbing To Me, To Put It Mildly. It Should Be Equally Disturbing To The Perpetually Overtaxed Residents Of Our Fair City, As Well.

HEADLINE IN THE JULY 13, 2017 MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE NEWSPAPER ...........
STATE AG SUES CENTURYLINK
Remember Reading On My Hamburg City Councilmember Website What I Discovered Was Taking Place Against The City By CenturyLink Because Of Their  Ambiguous And Erroneous Billing For Telephone Service To The City That Was Wasting Hundreds  (If Not THOUSANDS) Of Taxpayer Dollars Every Year ?

While What Had Been Taking Place For So Long Apparently 'Slipped Through The Cracks' (A Favorite Excuse) Of Our $75,000.00/Year City Clerk/Treasurer,
I Reported What I Discovered Was Taking Place To City Residents Via My City Councilmember Website  And Also Informed Hamburg Residents Of What Happened  As A Result Of My 'Taking Up The Cause' Against The Telephone Company Giant On  Behalf Of Hamburg Taxpayers.
