(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.
I ASKED A SIMPLE QUESTION ABOUT VANDALISM IN THE CITY  AND HERE ARE THE CITY'S AMBIGUOUS RESPONSES:

"Thank you for your email inquiry seeking answers to questions from the city as opposed to seeking the production of municipal data. The city is not in possession of any data that would contain answers to your below questions. The city is unable to provide answers to your questions. The city would refer you to the county for data
that may contain answers to your questions. Thank you for your inquiry." 
Jeremy Gruenhagen, Hamburg  City Clerk-Treasurer

"The City does not have any data in its possession
regarding your specific (above) questions and for
that reason, the City will not be providing to you
any responsive answers to your above questions." 
Jeremy Gruenhagen, Hamburg City Clerk-Treasurer

        The City's VERY POORIRRESPONSIBLE RESPONSE,To My
          MARCH 29, 2024 Letter To HAMBURG MAYOR CHRIS LUND
             was RECEIVED A DAY AFTER, I sent my SECOND
                        LETTER To LUND On MAY 29, 2024 !!

"The City does not have a responsibility to simply
answer all questions as you have posed them in your correspondence dated March 29, 2024, unless the answer to the questions can be found in municipal data. “Government data” does not include unrecorded mental impression of government employees or city council members. Keezer v. Spickard, 493 N.W.2d 614 (Minn. Ct. App. 1993). As stated by the Court of Appeals, “we cannot believe the legislature intended the term ‘government data,’ to be literally interpreted to include unrecorded data that exists only in a human brain. Interpreting ‘government data’ to include mental impressions formed by public employees during the course of employment would lead to absurd results.” 493 N.W.2d at 617. The City provides the following responses as to your questions contained within your March 29, 2024, correspondence to the City."

My requests for PUBLIC INFORMATION were then followed by .......

"Response: The City is not interpreting your question to be data practices act request and therefore is not providing a response to the above question. Your question is also vague and ambiguously drafted."

Excerpt From Page 8 Of My Bbook,
"PUBLIC OFFICIALS BEHAVING BADLY" ........
(MORE EXCERPTS To Follow, PLEASE CHECK BACK !!)

"As for when we moved to Hamburg, as I previously stated, that, too; was basically a 'pleasant experience' for about the first seven and a half years after we moved here. But, unknown to me at the time, that would all change and the individual that I first perceived to be the 'warm and welcoming' representative of the CITY OF HAMBURG, turned out to be a HUGE disappointment, actually; I would PERSONALLY find out that he was really 'A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' !!"
 
"Gruenhagen is one of just a very few times in my life that I 'misjudged' somebody. In my view, he's a real 'fooler' and was a BIG disappointment to me !! Some of his actions were so EGREGIOUS after I became a City Councilmember (2013-2017) and since, I'm devoting an ENTIRE SECTION of this book to, and about, him."
 
"Even his staunchest 'supporters', other than 'similar' City Officials, (birds of a feather syndrome) will be surprised, dismayed and disappointed when they learn more, little known information, about him, his 'quick temper', mood swings and some of  the things he's done; acts that he has committed."
 
"As a Hamburg City Councilmember, I witnessed it all !! But the City kept 'covering' for him and 'sweeping everything under the concrete slab' on which the City Hall sits. And their STILL DOING IT YET TODAY; why do you think the 'Deputy' City Clerk of EIGHT YEARS abruptly quit and WHY the CITY OF HAMBURG can't hire a replacement Public Works employee ?"
 
"It's crystal clear that because of Gruenhagen's reputation, nobody wants to work in the 'hostile work environment' that he creates. Again; I witnessed it FIRSTHAND, while I was on the City Council. I vividly recall one time when Gruenhagen went on a 'tirade' about the then Fire Chief Brad Droege and spoke poorly about him."
 
"And; even about THE OUTGOING FIRE CHIEF'S DAUGHTER !!"
 
"And the  INCOMING FIRE CHIEF !!"
 
"And, yes; even the PUBLIC WORKS & UTILITY BILLING CLERK EMPLOYEES that worked for the City when we moved here 'way back' in 2007 !!" 
"THOSE WHO ABUSE THEIR POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE."

"You have spent much
time on your book."
(Yes; 4 1/2 MONTHS !!)

"Holy Cow; that's detailed. It made
total sense."
(And uses 'COMMON SENSE!!)

"Good ad
(on my Internet Show)
for your book, very professional." 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: 
Isn't that what your current Mayor and City Council have? 

"Delta, Excellent,
fun show, #2023-12,
Great variety of music, and good luck with
the new book."

"Dick, You should do
a 'Book Tour'."

"That is great. People need to know what
is happening." 
"Good morning, Dick.

I am in receipt of your book.  Already on page 52, I must say I am awestruck at the time and effort represented therein.  

Surely there must be better places to live than Hamburg....."

"I know there is a lot of corruption in the government but you need to know there is also corruption in your own back yard. Dick's book is an inside look at what is happening in your city government! It’s certainly well worth the read."

"Read it and make up your own mind."

"Hi Richard,

What a surprise to find in our mailbox yesterday. Thank You so much for sending us a copy of your book!! That book will  always be on our coffee table so every will see it and hopefully read or buy it.

I have started to read it and boy is it interesting, You sure made it an easy read, large print and clearly written.

The bad thing about this is it is happening everywhere in our cities here in Michigan. 

Much success in future sales of this book and like I
said, it happens in all states."

"I got your copy of the book, thanks!  I'm up to the
part where your writing about the grinder station.  It's not the way most cities and towns operate their governments, that's for sure."


"Unbelievable. You will be selling more books faster then they can be printed."

I've already presented IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE, that CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY
GRUENHAGEN CLEARLY, and INTENTIONALLY; LIED when he stated, IN WRITINGon
an OFFICIAL CITY DOCUMENT in response to my requesting information about the lawsuit
served on the City on July 31, 2019. GRUENHAGEN stated,"Since the pleadings have
been  filedyou can get them from the Carver County Court Administrator."

ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE, SUPPLIED BY THE CARVER COUNTY COURT
CLEARLY SHOWS GRUENHAGEN'S STATEMENT WAS TOTALLY FALSE !! 

I Learned, Soon After Being Elected  To The HAMBURG CITY COUNCILThat HONESTY,
INTEGRITY And TRUTHFULNESS Were  NOT GRUENHAGEN'S 'STRONG SUITS' Then,
And Judging By His FOUR RESPONSES SHOWN ABOVE; And His Other Actions, Words
And Misdeeds, Those CRITICAL QUALITIES Are STILL NON-EXISTENT !!

Here Are Some PERTINENTAPPLICABLE TERMS That HAMBURG RESIDENTS NEED
TO KNOW Relating To WHAT'S TAKING PLACE In The CITY OF HAMBURGNote How
Many Apply To What's Taking Place With HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS Based On What
You're Learning About By Visiting My Websites & Listening To The "HAMBURG MINNESOTA
UPDATE" On My Five Times A Week Internet Show, About The CITY OF HAMBURG.

LIE BY COMMISSION
 TELLING or STATING SOMETHING that is UNTRUE or NOT A FACTAlso;
'TWISTING THE TRUTH' to CREATE a (usually) MORE FAVORABLE
version of something that happened.

LIE BY OMISSION
LEAVING OUTFAILING or REFUSING TO PROVIDE IMPORTANT
INFORMATIONIn these lies, someone omits an important detail from a statement to
MISREPRESENT or SKEW THE TRUTHThis type of  DECEPTION can be
JUST AS HARMFUL  AS A BLATANT LIE, IF NOT MORE SO !! 
These are NASTY LIES because they’re harder to spot, (unless your
name is DELTA !!); and take less effort from the person who is lying. 

Researchers quoted in the American Psychological Association (APA) refer to these people
as "LIARS WHO DECEIVE BY OMISSION" who, when asked to answers
questions or provide more details; typically offer less than those telling the truth.

ALSO, the information stated above 'raises the question' of  'CONSPIRACYinvolving
OTHER HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIALS; none the less of which is
'contract' HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY KELLY C. DOHM !!

Is HAMBURG CITY CLERK/TREASURER JEREMY GRUENHAGEN acting as a 'LONE WOLF' or is some other HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIAL(S) 'PULLING HIS STRINGS' ?

Excerpt From Page 11 Of My Book,
"PUBLIC OFFICIALS BEHAVING BADLY" ........
(MORE EXCERPTS To Follow, PLEASE CHECK BACK !!)

"As an ELECTED OFFICIAL of the CITY OF HAMBURG, I was SO CONCERNED about Gruenhagen's IMPULSIVENEGATIVE BEHAVIOR that, on November 5, 2014, I sent a TEN PAGE LETTER to (then) City Councilmember Chris Lund; who was a member of the infamous HAMBURG PERSONNEL COMMITTEE, expressing my grave concern about Gruenhagen's HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE workplace conduct and behavior. A copy of that ten page letter to Lund is contained herein.
 
In addition to my ten page letter to Lund, I also had a lengthy telephone conversation with him (Lund) discussing Gruenhagen's poor representation of, and liability to, the CITY OF HAMBURG. Further, I went to then MAYOR RICHARD MALZ and discussed with him, at length, my concerns about Gruenhagen that I had discussed with Lund, as well as Gruenhagen's ACTIONS'EXPLOSIVE'TEMPER and  INAPPROPRIATEEMBARRASSING BEHAVIOR.
 
COUNCILMEMBER CHRIS LUNDMAYOR RICHARD MALZ and the ENTIRE HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL TOTALLY IGNORED Gruenhagen's 'warning signs'; as well as my MAKING LUND and MALZ,  AWARE of what was taking place involving Gruenhagen.
 
Like every other time that Gruenhagen's inappropriate actions and misdeeds were brought up and questioned, INCLUDING THIS TIME, the HAMBURG SIX 'covered' for him, his deplorable behavior & actions; and NOTHING WAS EVER DONE.
 
They were his 'enablers' and; in the FOUR YEARS that I was on the  HAMBURG CITY COUNCIL, I don't EVER recall ANY DISCIPLINARY ACTION TAKEN AGAINST GRUENHAGEN for his inappropriate actions and behavior !!"

"Richard Odoms Data Requests of May 29, 2024

The City does not have a responsibility to simply answer all questions as you have posed them in your correspondence dated May 29, 2024, unless the answer to the questions can be found in municipal data. “Government data” does not include unrecorded mental impression of government employees or city council members. Keezer v. Spickard, 493 N.W.2d 614 (Minn. Ct. App. 1993).

And, of course, the City's 'SAME OLD REFRAIN' denying my request to provide
the  PUBLIC INFORMATION that I requested; thereby PREVENTING the
 PUBLIC FROM KNOWING  WHAT'S TAKING PLACE !!

"Response: The City is not in possession of responsive data to this request and
therefore is not providing a response to the above question. Your question is also
vague and ambiguously drafted."

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz recently signed a bill that will send $30 MILLION to 'cash-strapped' rural Emergency Medical Services. The legislation will provide $24 MILLION in short-term 'emergency aid' for E.M.S. in greater
Minnesota. The other $6 MILLION will go towards a "SPRINT MEDIC" pilot program to test the efficiency of 'roving Paramedics'. in rural Minnesota. Of course, the bill also added another 'layer' of 'government
bureaucracy'; an 'OFFICE OF EMERGENCY SERVICES' that will 'oversee' Minnesota's E.M.S. network. I wasn't aware that there is anything wrong with Minnesota's current E.M.S. 'network' that
needed new/more 'oversight'; it  seems to me that someone is 'LOOKING FOR A 'SOLUTION' TO A 'PROBLEM' THAT DOESN'T EXIST !! (Or a 'cushy' job with the State !) 

As far as I know, the E.M.S. Program in Minnesota ISN'T BROKEN  but it probably can use some 'enhancements'. One of those 'enhancements' is ALREADY AVAILABLE, with 'LOCAL CONTROL'; already 'IN THE HANDS' of LOCAL JURISDICTIONS !! It's 'common sense' 
that 'LOCAL CONTROL is MORE EFFECTIVEEFFICIENT and ORGANIZED when the LOCAL Police, Fire and E.M.S. personnel who ENCOUNTER THE SICK & INJURED EVERY DAY, IN THEIR OWN AREA are 'calling the shots'; NOT somebody sitting in St. Paul !!

HAMBURG MAYOR
CHRIS LUND

HAMBURG CITY CLERK
JEREMY GRUENHAGEN

HAMBURG CITY ATTORNEY
KELLY C. DOHM
Supplied to the City by 'contract' from the Waconjia based law
offices of MELCHERT, HUBERT & SJODIN and paid at an
HOURLY RATE the CITY OF HAMBURG
REFUSES TO PROVIDE !!
 
A 'COVER-UP' IS WORSE THAN THE CRIME BECAUSE IT EXPOSES AN ONGOING
PATTERN OF DECEIT, DECEPTION,
DISHONESTY & UNTRUTHFULNESS !!

In just ONE of  HAMBURG'S 'COVER-UPS'VANDALISM TO CITY PROPERTY
was committed by the SON of
HAMBURG MAYOR CHRIS LUND
and the
CITY SUCCESSFULLY
 'COVERED UP'
WHAT TOOK PLACE !!!

But the 'COVER-UP' that took place was subsequently
'LEAKED' to TWO Hamburg City residents by 
HAMBURG CITY
CLERK/TREASURER
JEREMY GRUENHAGEN
who, in so doing; thereby
ADMITTED TO BEING
INVOLVED IN THE
'COVER-UP' !! 

“The 'Cover-Upis "worse than the crime” refers to the idea that attempts to conceal or obscure wrongdoing
can lead to more severe consequences
than the original misdeed.
(See MINNESOTA STATUTE 609.43, above.)

The phrase is steeply rooted in the concept of trust.

This principle underscores the importance of  TRANSPARENCYACCOUNTABILITY, and INTEGRITY
in politics, suggesting thadishonesty in the
aftermath of an  error or crime often
compounds the original offense,
leading to  greater political,
legal and  ethical
repercussions.

"ORIGIN OF 'COVER-UP' IS
WORSE THAN THE CRIME

When political figures or institutions engage in a
'Cover-Up', they breach the public’s trust,
potentially causing more damage to their
reputations and political prospects
than if they had openly admitted
to and dealt with the
original offense.

This is particularly relevant in democracies where politicians are held accountable by the
electorate, the judiciary, and free press.

"COVER-UPS" IN POLITICS
CAN TAKE VARIOUS FORMS

They may involve MANIPULATING INFORMATION,
SILENCING 'WHISTLE-BLOWERS' (like the City TRIED
to do to ME !!), OBSTRUCTING INVESTIGATIONS,
LYING TO THE PUBLICREFUSING TO
PROVIDE PUBLIC INFORMATION or USING
ONE'S POWER to EVADE ACCOUNTABILITY !!

Note: ALL SIX ELEMENTS listed above are PRESENT in the CRIMINAL ACTIONS of the
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS INVOLVED !! 

While such strategies, as have taken place with
HAMBURG CITY OFFICIALS might offer
temporary respitethey often lead to
more significant scandals once
the  truth surfaces, resulting
in a greater fall from grace
than the initial wrongdoing
would have caused.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madelyn Albright:
"THE 'COVER UP', MORE THAN THE
INITIAL WRONGDOING; IS WHAT IS MOST LIKELY TO BRING YOU DOWN."

One of the most notable examples of this phrase’s
embodiment in United States politics is the
WATERGATE SCANDAL of the 1970s.

The scandal began with a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters, but it was the
Nixon administration’s attempts to
'Cover-Up' its involvement
that led to a full-blown
political crisis.

This led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon;
the first and only U.S. President to resign from office.

Here, the 'cover-up' actions were deemed far more
damaging and consequential than the initial crime.

The phrase also has a legal dimension.

In certain situations, the acts of covering up a crime
such as perjury, obstruction of justice, or
destruction of evidencecan carry
heavier legal penalties than
the original offense.

Moreover, a 'Cover-Upoften creates a paper trail orpattern of behavior that can provide
investigators and prosecutors
with additional evidence.

Furthermore, this phrase emphasizes the inherent value
in acknowledging and rectifying wrongdoing
in the political sphere.

In a practical sense, it suggests that politicians can often better manage the fallout from an initial misstep or
scandal by being transparent, apologizing
where necessary, and taking steps to
prevent  future occurrences.

Such actions can, at times, strengthen a politician’s
image by displaying their commitment to
accountability and ethical conduct.

That will NEVER HAPPEN with the HAMBURG CITY
OFFICIALS listed above because of their LACK
of  ANY CONSCIENCE or MORAL
CHARACTER and their
'superiority complexes' !!

What's taking place in the CITY OF HAMBURG by its
PUBLIC OFFICIALS is FAR FROM OVER; it's
just the 'TIP' of the proverbial 'ICEBERG' !! 

As most everyone knows, I've encountered a superfluous
amount of  BABBLE, DOUBLE-TALK, BLOVIATING,
NONSENSICAL, DRIVEL, GIBBERISH and
HOGWASH responses to my requests, as
well as the REFUSAL OF THE CITY
OF HAMBURGTO PROVIDE
PUBLIC INFORMATION.

Such 'SECRETIVE CONDUCT' by the PUBLIC
OFFICIALS of the CITY OF HAMBURG
is INDICITIVE of a MUCH MORE
SERIOUS 'PROBLEMthat
REQUIRES A 'DEEPERINVESTIGATION !!

Coupled with the 'COVER-UP' of HAMBURG PUBLIC OFFICIAL
MISCONDUCT that I've ALREADY
UNCOVERED and EXPOSEDAND the RELUCTANCE & REFUSAL of the CITY
OF HAMBURG to provide me with SIMPLEBASIC PUBLIC INFORMATION, can you IMAGINE  the PANIC and SCURRYING
AROUND that would take place at CITY
