I'm not "playing devils advocate"... The fact of the matter is, as of right now Bergdahl has not been convicted of treason, and we don't try people in absentia. Personally, I do think he's (more than likely) guilty of the crimes that he has been charged with... And actually as far as I'm concerned that's all the MORE reason that we DID need to get him back, so that he WILL…

OK, that's fair. But then what's the answer? ( I personally think he's guilty, but that's neither here nor there.) If we leave him there, we're breaking a very important promise that we make to everyone who enlists -- not to leave our own people behind. But if he's guilty, and you're saying we should've left him there? Where is his accountability (and the…

Mayor says moves were made to attempt to solve projected budget deficit

Quincy Journal has learned the City of Quincy has eliminated two administrative positions.

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore confirmed the cuts this morning and issued a statement:

"The employees were notified that their positions were being eliminated and would not be included in the next budget. The absorption of the two positions was not due to the performance of the individuals, but a reflection that those duties could be handled by other positions within the city. The individuals have served the City of Quincy well and I am thankful for their service."  

Sources have told Quincy Journal the people who were let go were Jane Smith, administrative assistant at Central Services and Marty Wagner, project manager in Engineering/Utilities. The administration would not confirm the names. 

Moore said the moves were made after discussions with department heads on how the City could "reduce costs, streamline our structure and still provide uninterrupted service to our residents."

The City of Quincy now has 304 full-time employees, which is down from 312 employees when Moore took office in May.

Moore said this year's City budget started with a $1.8 million deficit. The budget was put together by the previous administration.

"This year’s budget proposed spending $31.8 million while only bringing in $30 million in revenues," Moore said. "That is not sustainable. My administration is currently working on preparing a budget that is balanced. This decision was just one step in that process."

The City's administration and City Council will be holding a budget retreat at the Town and County Inn and Suites on February 1 at 9:00 a.m. The public is invited.
