A Mayor, running to be the State Senator for Lakeville, Farmington, Hampton, Vermillion, New Trier, Miesville, Dennison, Randolph, Northfield, and 12 townships!
“I’ve always been a pragmatic policy maker. It’s not about party or labels, it’s about solving problems that matter to people and families.”
Well, I’ve got some problems that matter to me, but Lakeville Mayor Matt Little hasn’t been willing to help me solve them. In fact, I have left numerous voice mails and sent numerous emails to make him aware of the witness tampering, harassment by the Lakeville police and illegal withholding of my evidence in rigged case no. 19HA-CR-15-4227 State Of Minnesota VS Deirdre Elise Evavold. The evidence of this misconduct was sent to Matt & is outlined in the criminal complaint below.
I was forced to file against Dakota Co. Attorneys: James Backstrom, Philip Prokopowicz and Kathryn Keena on February 21, 2016 for illegally withholding readily available, free, electronic, data in violation of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (Chapter 13.09) and criminal misconduct of a public official (Chapter 609.43(1)). The so-called judge Karen Asphaug has also been aiding and abetting this miscarriage of justice by ignoring her own orders. “All discovery shall be exchanged PRIOR to the settlement conference. Probable cause, and scheduling order for: 19HA-CR-15-4227. Signed by Karen Asphaug 3-1-16.” I have been to forced to travel approximately one and one half hours one way to multiple court hearings, only to be denied my discovery.

Matt has willfully refused to respond to a single email/voicemail and it would appear that lawyer Little wants to distance himself from this obstruction of justice. As an attorney, he knows that it’s impossible for me to prepare for my trial or for my testimony in the Sandra Grazzini-Rucki trial on Monday, July 18th without my discovery/evidence. Apparently trial by ambush is how Mayor/Lawyer Little believes our system of justice should function.
It is the duty of the mayor, clerk, and councilmembers to ensure the city fulfills its duties under the law and lawfully exercises its powers.
City officials can sometimes be held personally liable for failing to act or for taking unauthorized actions on the part of the city. To avoid personal-liability lawsuits, city officials should gain a working knowledge of the laws that regulate city government http://www.lmc.org/page/1/duties-resp-mayor-council.jsp
On June 24th, 2016 I was forced to travel to the Hastings Police Dept. to hand deliver the complaint against the Dakota Co. Attorneys James Backstrom, Philip Prokopowicz and Kathryn Keena. I was forced to do that because Hastings Police Chief Bryan Schafer willfully refused to acknowledge receipt of my emailed complaint. It’s ironic since Gary Hird of the Lawyer’s Professional Responsibility Board did. Even though I have audio and video evidence of hand-delivering my complaint to Lieutenant Joe Kegley, Chief Schafer willfully refuses to email me the public portion of the police report that I filed against Backstrom, Prokopowicz and Kathryn Keena.
On the same day, I attempted to file a criminal complaint with the Lakeville Police against David Rucki (ex-husband of Sandra). I have reason to suspect Rucki was engaging in witness tampering. Rucki was harassing, threatening, and intimidating me via the U.S. Mail. The Lakeville police personnel claimed that Deputy Chief Kormann had them tell me that they did not have any officers available to take my complaint. The video that I have in my possession indicates that not one but two officers were witnessed at the Lakeville PD who could have easily taken my valid complaint.

I contacted Tim Pitcher, Farmington Councilmember and State Senator District 58 Candidate via phone and email to inform him about his fellow Candidate Matt Little. Tim returned my call promptly and I was able to inform him that Matt Little has had no difficulty stepping on me to climb the political ladder and clearly serves a corrupt special interest group vs. the public’s interest.
He agreed to contact Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom to request that my evidence be emailed to me immediately to prepare for my testimony in Sandra Grazzini-Rucki’s trial (He assured us that he would send a follow-up email regarding contact with Dakota Co.)

As stated before, apparently, the only way Dakota County can win their cases is by illegally withholding evidence from the defendants they are victimizing in criminal cases and forcing them to plead guilty without ever receiving their evidence. I did report this obstruction of justice to District 4 – Commissioner Nancy Schouweiler (Calls recorded). Schouweiler lawyered up and apparently has no intention of investigating the misuse of public funds nor the misconduct of the public officials at the Dakota County Attorney’s office. To protect myself and others, I have been educating the public that they cannot trust any arrest, prosecution nor conviction in lawless Dakota County and I’m also going to continue to educate the public that they cannot trust Mayor/Lawyer Matt Little.
