SilenceDogood22 - New jail or no new jail? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Absolutely not. Everyone in government needs to be held accountable for spending tax payer dollars. I'm not necessarily for the jail project (or against it). But the notion that we should "take care of ourselves" by not paying any taxes, or comparing a jail to obama phones and welfare is assinine. Almost as ridiculous as the original text of the article. We need a jail. Do we need a new one? Do…

I've asked before and I will ask again: When/If a new "justice center' is built, will the current jail and police station in town be closed permanently or will both remain open and staffed? If remain open, for the need to house prisoners awaiting their day in court, then staffing will be needed. Transportation costs will go up, to bring the prisoner from the 'justice center' into…

You are willing then to hand over a debatable amount of 25 million dollars? Without a plan, without any allocation of properties? All on the ridiculous idea it's unsafe for the employees? The county will get sued is the latest argument.... In the most secure supermax prisons lawsuits I'm sure are most common. So forgive me for not trusting the government to handle our money reasonably.…

Don't you think it is a little early for speculations? At least wait until he is in the ground.

Rauner chooses running mate; In Quincy TODAY

Rauener and Evelyn Sanguinetti will meet and greet at Sprout's Inn at 12:45 p.m.

Bruce Rauner announced Evelyn Sanguinetti as his Lieutenant Governor selection today and they began a two-day tour of the state that will take them to Chicago, Rockford, Quad Cities, Marion, Quincy and Peoria.

“Evelyn is the perfect partner to shake up Springfield,” Bruce Rauner said. “She’s achieved the American Dream and will fight so more in Illinois can reach it too. She grew up in poverty, relying on public assistance, and worked hard to become an Illinois Assistant Attorney General, a City Councilmember, and a teacher at the very law school that gave her the opportunity to work for this state.”

“She has the talent and guts to take on the lobbyists, special interests, and career politicians that are destroying this state and eliminating opportunities for the next generation,” Rauner said.

“I’m proof that with hard work, a good education and an opportunity anyone from anywhere can make it,” Evelyn Sanguinetti said. “Unfortunately, too many in Illinois who have backgrounds that look a whole lot like mine aren’t being given access to a quality education or that opportunity to succeed. I understand firsthand how the policies pushed by the career politicians are failing us and that’s why I’m excited to run with Bruce Rauner to transform Illinois.”

Sanguinetti currently lives in Wheaton and is a member of the City Council. She and her husband, Raymond, and their three children. She has been involved in Franklin Middle School, Lowell Elementary School and Jefferson Preschool PTA’s. Evelyn is also a member of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce and the DuPage County Bar Association. Evelyn and her family are active in Cub Scouts, the Community School of the Arts, Wheaton Briarcliffe Youth Baseball, and sports within the Wheaton Park District.
