 Re: False and Misleading Information Published 

To whom It May Concern:

I have worked in public safety, human rights and government services for most of my life, however back in 2015 while working in my official capacity as the President for the League of Minnesota Human Rights Commissions, I assigned other Commissioners to investigate a complaint that was made to our office regarding a business in the city of Roseville Minnesota who was accused of engaging in possible illegal activity in the area of race, which is against Minnesota Statute 363A (Minnesota Human Rights Act)

Our investigation was obstructed by former Lieutenant Lorne Rosand who was employed by the Roseville Police Department. While Rosand was employed with the City of Roseville, he used his authority as a police officer to make false and slanderous accusations against myself and my volunteer Commissioners. We believe the primary reason he did this was because of retaliation against me when I was a Commissioner for Human Rights in the City of Roseville for almost 8 years. During my time as a Roseville Commissioner I made findings that were not favorable to the police department. 

Because I am a public official the local media got word of this attack and published false and misleading stories and my reputation suffered as a result. I also had to hire a reputation specialist to assist me in repairing some of the damage done.

My Attorney advised me to post the letter that you see to the right of this memo for explanation and disclosure regarding the incident. I f you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you.
