I don't see why not. Those very same elected officials (at the state level, anyway) seem to think it's perfectly acceptable to renege on established contracts when they decide it cost too much to honor the commitment. Good for the goose, right? (BTW, this isn't an issue of whether you support unions or not. Even if you hate them and think they screwed everyone over with their contracts,…

Hmmm...fox guarding the hen house comes to mind. Maybe somebody should start a petition? One to change council to 7 members, the other for healthcare? Paul Havermale is apparently planning to submit a petition of 500 wanting to save the fire station. We ought to be able to beat that if people really want this. Mind you not many people are running for alderman...so taking away benefits may not be the…

We are discussing ways to save money. This is ONE way to save enough money to keep some public safety intact.

GOP candidates back in Quincy after an appearance last week

Just a week after a visit to Quincy, gubernatorial candidate Sen. Kirk Dillard was back on Wednesday.

The Republican State Senator from Hinsdale spoke to a Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce group at lunchtime and attended a fundraiser at Quincy Country Club in the evening. 

Dillard said campaigning in the home area of his running mate, State Rep. Jil Tracy of Quincy, shows voters he's taking nothing for granted, as he lost the GOP nomination for governor four years ago to Bill Brady by 193 votes.

Dillard was the second of the four GOP candidates for governor to speak before the Chamber group. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford spoke to them last month at Spring Lake Country Club
